I’m So Mad

I’m so mad excited that it’s officially summer!

Today, June 20th  marks the Summer Solstice…aka the first day of summer!

Even though it seems like it has been summer down here since March in the very hot and oh so sticky and magnitudedly humid Georgia, there is something about it being the official day that gets me excited.

I know.

I am a dork.

You know what else gets me mad excited?

A little MadTv! I was on a mad YouTube binge last night and came across this little gem of a crazy and zany show. Do you all remember this? When I was in middle school, I got my very first, my very own, TV in my room. It. Was. The. Coolest! On Saturday nights, I would stay up til the wee hours of the morning, snuggled up in my bed (BECAUSE I HAD MY VERY OWN TV IN MY ROOM!!!!) with a glass of milk and a plate of oreos. First I’d get my laugh on watching SNL and then I’d fall alseep to the likes of one Stuart, Miss Swan, Bible Dude and the rest of the MadTV gang.

Although I was always prone to SNL (the best years in my opinion were when Sandler, Rock, Farley, Myers, Ferrel, Fallon, and Fey rocked the show. Now it’s sadly gone downhill. On skis. Fast.) but MadTV did have it’s crack-me-up moments.

Here are some of my favorite skits from the show 🙂

1. Abercrombie & Fitch

2. The Ellen Show

3. STUART!!!!

4. Miss Swan and the Dating Game

and finally the skit that has me literally in tears from laughter every time I watch it…

5. Jenny Jones (Uuhhhhh. Yeaah. Yyeeaahhhh.)

Yay for summer! But something I am not so mad excited about, that I’m just mad my poor ice cream. Did you know that Ben & Jerry now make soup? Apparently that is what you get when you mix 98 degrees (not the band although I am sure they had the power to melt many a heart back in the day) with getting stuck in traffic on the way home from the grocery store. Merp.

RIP Cookies and Cream. RIP.

Hope your official start to the summer is mad exciting 🙂

Question of the day: where you a MadTv fan?


CURRENTS are Just Raisins, Aren’t They?

CURRENTLY I am rocking my spiffy new pair of Milwaukee Brewers socks (of which I have a total of five–after all, a gal can never have too many Brewer socks, right?). I guess you could say they are “Crew” cut. I know, I know, that was lame although like Brewer socks, one can never have too many puns. Just FYI: There are only 41 short days until the Brew Crew reports to spring training!! Not that I am counting or anything 😉

My CURRENT jams are anything and everything 90’s (thank you mucho Pandora for the inspiration and amazeballs suggestions). That crazy person singing into her hairbrush and dancing around her room like a madwoman, yeah, that would be me. But one can’t help but get up and bust a move when you’re listening to the likes of TLC, The Beasty Boys, Nirvana, The Fugees, Dr. Dree, Hanson and of course a little Savage Garden. That reminds me, does anyone know where I can find a ‘chic  a cherry cola’?

I CURRENTLY have a hankering for one of these delicious diddies. It’s my challenge-O-the week! I haven’t had one of these guys in a long, long time but tonight’s the night! Bring that burger on!

Good thing I have plans to go to Yeah! Burger tonight!

My dog is CURRENTLY snoring so loud, I thought for a moment it was thundering outside. Which is kind of ironic, seeing as his name in, in all actuality, Thunder. Coincidence? I think not.

The lights in my room are CURRENTLY blinking on and off. Either my light bulbs are on the fritz or Casper the friendly ghost stopped by to say hi. “When there’s something strange, in the neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters!” Although, if my ghost happens to be a cutie-patutie like this guy, I think I can let it slide.

I am CURRENTLY working on the second to last chapter of my very first book and couldn’t be more excited!!!

However, I have also been sitting in the same spot while working on the second to last chapter of my book for over four hours now and as such, CURRENTLY have the tinglies in my feet ( I guess my dog AND my feet decided to take a long nap this afternoon). Isn’t that the weirdest feeling when your feet fall asleep? I wonder what causes that?

Because this is going to drive me insane if I don’t find out, I am now CURRENTLY Googling ‘what causes the tingles when your feet fall asleep’?

Just an FYI: According to Discovery Health, you feel this familiar sensation after you’ve been putting pressure on part of you­r body — sitting on a foot, sleeping on an arm, etc. When you apply this pressure for a prolonged period of time, you actually cut off communication from your brain to parts of your body. The pressure squeezes nerve pathways so that the nerves can’t transmit electrochemical impulses properly. Nerve impulses carry sensation information from nerve endings in the body to the brain, as well as instructions from the brain to the parts of the body. When you interfere with this transfer by squeezing the nerve pathways, you don’t have full feeling in that body part, and your brain has trouble telling the body part what to do.

This pressure can also squeeze arteries, stopping them from carrying nutrients to body cells. Without these nutrients, the nerve cells may behave abnormally, which can further interfere with communicating bodily sensations.

Due to both these factors, the information transmitted from the body part becomes somewhat jumbled, and the brain receives strange messages. Some nerve cells don’t transmit any information and others start sending impulses erratically. This causes you to feel a strange tingling sensation, which actually serves an important function. Your foot falling asleep for 10 minutes doesn’t pose any health threat, but if you were to cut off circulation for an extended period of time — several hours — you could suffer serious nerve damage. The initial tingling sensation tells you that you might want to readjust your position.

Once you do move your foot, stretch your legs, or roll over off your arm, the nerve impulses begin to flow properly again. You don’t regain feeling right away, however. There is a certain amount of re-adjustment time before the nerves transmit impulses correctly again. This increases the intensity of the tingling, causing the familiar “pins and needles” sensation.

And there you have it. If you ever are on Jeopardy and are asked the $10,000 question, you can look straight at Alex Trebec’s cocky grin and blast him with this impressive answer in confidence. You’re welcome.

I CURRENTLY want to go watch Jeopardy now. Well, maybe not that actual show. I’m more of a Wheel of Fortune gal when it comes to playing–does anyone else feel stupid when trying to play along with that show? I mean who comes up with those darn questions? It’s probably a conspiracy and I bet Alex Trebec and Chuck Norris are behind it all. However, I do love me some of this kind of Jeopardy.

Have a great Tuesday night guys!
