a new brain

I approach the customer service desk cautiously -- I don't want to interrupt Natalie while she's at work, but I'd certainly like to talk with her. Luckily we make eye contact and she carves out a few moments from her paperwork and complaints to chat with me.

"You haven't blogged much lately..." she says.

"I know." And I do. It's just that I can't think on my own. Part of my downfall is my inability to use my brain (curse o' the third trimester). Another part is relying on youtube to do my thinking for me.

I've received an email a few times in the last week, as have you, with this youtube posting. I honestly like it, more than similar others I've seen, but maybe I'm biased because Kerri is a friend of mine and she made it and everything she makes, or touches, turns into gold.

But then I see things like this. And I don't know why I like this particular one so much, but I can't stop watching (no adult's gonna waste their time doing that). Maybe if I stopped then my brain could begin working again on its own. I mean, My Gash.

I love how she's so sure that it wasn't an adult that wrote it BECAUSE "an adult wouldn't put those little lines next to Jesus like that." Of course not... has she SEEN Dr. Phil, Maury, or Springer re-runs lately.

I've been thinking of you lately. I know I haven't shown it, even though I meant to call or email, but here's proof because I just typed it online. Love, me

I love the dramatic head turn to the camera when she says, "My gash" because you know she was instructed only to look at the reporter while talking. But that drove the point home!

I'll be sure to pick up Lucy's wiener poopies from now on.

i'm glad you stopped to chat, i was thinking how i hadn't seen you in forever. so it was good. and i always welcome an excuse to not do returns! thanks for the videos. i showed kade and he said, "that's president hinckley!"

Thank you. I have now said "My Gash" 800 times today.

b. - Broad range, indeed. Which is why I suppose I need to rely on youtube to do my thinking for me, right?

yen - only because of the lines around the word Jesus. Not because every single letter i is dotted with a circle, or because the letter says 'weiner poopie' all over it.

lucky - I've been thinking of you, too! And I think of you every time it's sunny and I think, "It's too sunny...I know Lucky would agree with me."

cw - come back soon! I wonder what your reaction is to these videos...

jaimerly - I know. I love that part. And it's a good thing you'll pick up Lucy's weiner poopies -- that shows your devotion to making sure your Jesus is returned to you unharmed.

natalie - I just don't go to The Big C (is that what you call it?) as much as I used to, and I'm not sure why...but seeing you there is always the best part.

sue - me, too. Let's have a contest to see who can say it the most at the next presidency meeting.

My Gosh.

My favorite part was hearing the reporter, in his matter-of-fact voice, say "weiner poopie" over and over when he read the letter. Then he resorted to calling it "leavings" when referring to it himself.

Thanks for the link.
