You're gonna love my nuts!

Have any of you seen the commercial for the SlapChop? If not, watch this...yes, it's the "Sham-Wow" guy.

Now, watch the Spanish version...but wait for the 'window shot'. Seriously, this made me snort.

Someone had to tell you...


* Well, I'm finally over the worst part (I hope) of the asskicking swinerific flu that I've had for the past week. I can't believe how horrible it was. So far I've lost 12 pounds...not too shabby, and I still can't keep much down. I did want to lose weight, but not like this.

* My good friend, Nic, is leaving in the morning to start a new adventure in Atlanta, and we couldn't be happier for her, Tim and Zubin...but we're going to miss them terribly. We went to visit them just over a week ago and wished them bon voyage. *sigh*

* My friend, E, is coming to visit in a few short weeks and I'm really happy to see her again! We had a blast last year when she came to visit. For long time readers of the blog, you'll remember that she used to post about culture, holidays, etc...she also wrote this song last year for me. If you do listen to the song, you'll need a box of tissues nearby...seriously.

Take a minute and go here and revel in the joy of new parents, Red Sand and Enviroman! I'm so happy for them, they finally have their boys!

Please take a moment...

...and sign this petition. I have some very dear friends who were affected by this, and I would greatly appreciate if you could all add your names (even if you do so anonymously) to the petition. In addition, if any of you could add this link on your blog/facebook/whatever, that would be great. Let's get the word out there.

Thank you.

Today marks our 34 month LIDiversary. Woo. Hoo.

I added a charm that "Crazy Lady" chose (for those of you who know who she is, you know where her blog is...for those of you who don't, so sad, too bad). Anyways, when I went to nab the picture of the charm off the company's website, it showed this. Apparently people who ordered the puzzle charm also bought the kamasutra one as fitting is that for her? ;)

She chose this charm because:
We are four pieces to the puzzle who often don't fit, despite how we force it, and my blog has so many edges. Some linear and some curved. My blog is puzzling overall. I don't stick to one theme long.

Our LIDiversary is bittersweet because good friends of ours received some devastating news today. I just hope they know that we're thinking of them and hoping that things turn around.

I meant to do this...

...but I forgot. Oops.

I wanted to make a big splashy post marking our 1,000 days being logged in, but it slipped my mind. Oh well, I'm marking it now, that counts right? Our 1,000th day was the day we left for Calgary, and I had a one or two things on my mind. :P

Today is 1,027 days of being logged in and I think *now* we're about halfway there. WOO HOO!

(insert massive eye roll here)
