I'm only posting the first of the three videos but definitely watch all three. Good god, they are hilarious! The viral video of the little boy after visiting the dentist is rivaled only by our dear, sweet girl in the Thwee Arms video.
Laughed too much watching them. I have to be truthful.....I peed a little.
The Reverend tagged me with this meme. I'm going with listing eight things I'd like to begin in the next six months because currently my life is slow...ie, I'm boring.
1. Promotion - I've been working for one with my company. Though I have a lot more to learn, I think I'm making a mark. I hope so and I would like to finally get that promotion (which leads to others).
2. Move - With promotion comes relocation. No definitive location right now. Have to wait for postings but we're hoping to move somewhere up north.
3. School - I want to finish college. I have so many credits yet no degree. I'm back in a position that I may be able to go back to school. I'm thinking of majoring in English with a concentration in creative writing. Also seriously thinking of photography.
4. A digital SLR - I'm going to get myself a badass one too. Birthday and Christmas are still in the future so a generous gift would be graciously accepted. I'm trying to save up as well; and if all else fails, there's income tax season next year.
5. Publication - I'm wanting to enter some writing contests or seek publication. Perhaps even look into freelance work. I'm told my writing is gooood. I'd like to prove that to myself.
6. Start a novel - No, not the same as above. I write short pieces and lots of poetry. I want to write something bigger.
7. Go on vacation - A real vacation where you go out of town and stay at a hotel or someplace that isn't a family member's address. Do you know that I've only done that once in my life? Once. Five years ago for my daughter's seventh birthday. We went to Disney World. How does one have wanderlust yet never goes anywhere? I have a traveler's spirit but a vagrant's pocketbook.
8. Date - This is the hardest thing out of all this. It means I have to actually feel like something more than a leper. Eh...giving me hives as I think about it.
Ok....For those I have to tag. I'm posting this here and on MySpace and so to include everyone, I pick:
I guess you can go any way: eight new things in your life that has happened, will happen, plan to happen, or such. And for others, visit there sites. Just click on a name and zoom off to new and wonderful places.

I haven't done one of these in a while. Borrowed from Jez. And does any other person find Bubble Blower just a bit weird as this pose name? I know it probably refers to the shape the feet make but my first thought had to do with farting and the touching of asses as seen in the picture....and well, other things too.
Find your own pose!
Borrowed from The Other Mother:
Start with your own blog. If you don't have a blog, start with any blog you choose. Go to the blogroll and clink on a link. It should be one you don't know already and that sounds interesting to you. From there, continue through the blogrolls of four more blogs. When you're at the sixth blog, post the link to that website on your own.
If you hit a blog with no blogroll, backtrack and redirect until you've followed six links in a row.
I started with The Bottle Shop and moved my way around England a bit more and ended with Please, please do it HARDER!! ...and funny, her first entry is about shagging any bloke she finds attractive. Extra points because she used both shagging and humping in the same entry.
Automatic and deliberately my heart beats in unison with your animated spirit.
Thank you, Lillie
