Things That Make Me Laugh

This week, someone found my blog by googling, "boots for fiddler on the roof". I say that anyone who is searching for two of my favorite things (boots, and "Fidder on the Roof") deserves a giant "Welcome" - and if you are that person, would you please say hello in the comments? I'd love to meet you! And I hope you found the "Fiddler on the Roof" boots that you were seeking.

Speaking of combining favorite things...yesterday, I took a break from the chaos and allowed myself to waste time on Pinterest. When I first found that site last year, I was sucked in for hours at a time, seven days a week. I'm happy to announce that I have learned to control that urge, and I now check Pinterest a couple of times a week, and usually spend less than 10 minutes on there (most of the time it's to pin an idea that I've found or an outfit that I want to remember). However, yesterday I was so glad that I spent time looking around because I found this...

If that isn't hot, buttery goodness, then I don't know what is. And just in case you are completely lost, it's a combination of a movie that is tied tightly to our courtship story ("The Princess Bride"), and a Pixar film that is loaded with great life lessons ("The Incredibles"). Whoever did this - brilliant.

And while we're on the topic of movies, I might as well end this thing with one of my favorite scenes from another one of my favorite films: You've Got Mail. I shared this clip on my Facebook page yesterday, but for those of you who are visiting from Twitter, or haven't followed me on Facebook (BTW, how arrogant does that sound? Or is that just me?), I wanted to share it here as well. Let me go on record as saying that you might be able to find a "defining sense of self" the next time you walk into a Starbucks, but good luck finding a "tall, decaf, cappuccino" for $2.95. {sigh} I think this movie makes me feel old. I went to see it when it was new in theaters, then again (at least 3 times) when it made it to the $2 theater that was down the road from my college (and across the street from Target - hello, perfect location!).


What's making YOU smile today?

  1. I LOVE The Incredibles. What a fantastic movie. You've Got Mail is also a personal favorite of mine. :)

  2. Love 'You've Got Mail' - probably an all time favorite. No, I've never found a defining sense of self - mainly because one of the people in front of me orders the same thing I did. Last time I was there, a guy named "Jonathan" ordered the exact same drink and we had a moment when picking it up deciding who got it. Not a "sense of self" moment, either.

    1. Hi Sandy! Haven't seen you here in a while - good to hear from you! Peter tried reading the book as he loved the movie so much, but he just couldn't get into the book.

  4. Something that made me smile today was this mashup of covers and parodies of Gotye's song Somebody that I used to know- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opg4VGvyi3M Possibly a bit ridiculous to have a mash-up of parodies of a cover of a song but it is a lot of fun.
