Meatballs

 

I used a website called Truly Random Number Generator to pick our winner… and it came up with number 41.  So, yay for Kathy!  I’m glad she won because her nick name made me laugh out loud.  Catheter.  Good golly that’s funny.  Enjoy the show, Kathy.  I’ll send you an email to get your addy.  Thanks to everybody who played.  Some of you have got some pretty jacked-up nicknames.

 

So this last week has been a real treat.  Guess what my friend gave me?  Two kiwi trees!  My all time favorite fruit.  I love getting stuff.  Especially when it’s something I like or that I want. I have to admit, it was a better Birthday Gift than the Schwans Meatballs and Coconut Shrimp that Geoff the Great brought home.  Not that I didn’t love that, too…  I mean, really…how can meatballs *not* be considered romantic? Aren’t you jealous that *you* don’t own a Schwans Man?

 

In other news, I bought myself a present.  I just couldn’t resist.  It’s got all these nifty Indian songs that are just super excellent.  Here, I’ll prove it to you, but make sure you get at least 1:15 seconds into it, because that’s when it really starts hoppin’:

 

 

Admit it.  That’s the grooviest thing you’ve ever heard, isn’t it?  This song, and the second song on the cd (Ringa Ringa) are impossible NOT to dance to.  Believe me, I tried.  You can’t do it.  Even Coie was practically almost tempted to get up and bust a move with me.  But she refrained, especially when Ryann pulled out the video camera.  I am not afraid of the evidence my child obtained because I fully embrace my inner Funk and there aint nobody in the whole world who can out-dance me.  Cept for maybe this guy… or Kate Kessler. And Laurie Bluedorn.  Whatever.   

Lastly, congrats to my dear friends, George and Chris.  They had a little baby boy today!  And now Eden has somebody to grow up and marry (if one of the Lockwood boys don’t scoop her up first)

  1. I’m thankful that Eden will have so many grand, wonderful young men being raised in grand, wonderful families to choose from. She’s one lucky chick(y).

    As for your ‘groove’… it IS, uh, something else. So, just out of curiosity, why is it that when you start busting out your moves, they oddly and strongly resemble Richard Simmons meets Abs of Steel? Don’t deny it… you learned everything you know from workout videos. and Michael Jackson.

  2. And yes. I *am* jealous. alls I ever wanted in life was a short, stocky, Asian Shwan’s man.

    … I’ll keep my Alaskan white boy. I’m content.

  3. You crack me up! I never could have come up with a sentence that included ‘meatballs’ and ‘romantic’ in it at the same time! LOL! I’m till really sorry I didn’t win your contest though – really wanted that one! Never mind – back to the next chapter of Kingdom Dawn books for me! :o)

  4. Kiwi trees … very cool. I learn something new about TN every day. Let’s just say you couldn’t grow kiwi up in the frozen north.

  5. Okay, this is beyond weird. No lie, this song was in my head 2 minutes before I checked your blog. Have you seen the dance sequence from the movie? Oooo, I soooo love synchronized dancing.

  6. Okay, I heard this song elsewhere and realized it was the same one you were talking about. It is so catchy!

    While I was trying to figure out what the song was running around in my head, I came across this blog post, and you just have to see his interpretation of the lyrics. You need to read them as you play the song, it’s so funny. (Caveat: It’s late and I’m tired so maybe it’s not as funny as I think it is, but it amused me nonetheless.)

    Scroll below the video for the ‘lyrics’. And I totally thought the song was saying Tally Ho. :-)

  7. Shoot, I forgot the other thing I was going to tell you. If you haven’t seen it yet, you must watch Bride and Prejudice. It’s a modern Indian take on Price and Prejudice – Jane Austen with an Indian music background. I seriously liked this movie. But then I like Bollywood movies. Check it out though, it’s fun!

    Really done now. I think.

  8. Found your blog thru Facebook’s Networked Blogs. We love Indian songs although I couldn’t finish watching Slumdog Millionaire. Stopped when they burned out that little boy’s eyes. eek. If it wasn’t a child, probably could’ve continued. I wanted to recommend Bride and Prejudiced and saw the commenter before me did too. It’s a must see with GREAT songs!!
