I’m having fun online today

Babywearing and Beyonce: This video at Marvelous Kiddo made my day.

Win something cool: Mary at Owlhaven is having a giveaway of a Sony Pocket Reader.

Because I hear legwarmers are cool again: Have you seen the literal music videos on You Tube? I think they are hilarious.  I think this version of Total Eclipse of the Heart is pee- in-your-pants funny. Seeing what passed as cool in the 80’s is funny enough but the literal words being sung just make it that much better.

They like me. They really like me: This has got to be the best confirmation of shipping email I’ve ever received:

Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.
A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure it was in the best possible condition before mailing.
Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.
We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved “Bon Voyage!” to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, December 7, 2009.
We hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. In commemoration, we have placed your picture on our wall as “Customer of the Year.” We’re all exhausted but can’t wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!

One thought on “I’m having fun online today

  1. I’d never heard of the literal videos before I read your post.
    “Total Eclipse of the Heart” was one of my favorite songs as a teenager. I was still dying laughing several minutes after the video ended.

    I also appreciate all of the book/ author recommendations.
