Stuff That Makes Me Smile: Cool Wedding Proposals

Leave a comment

I’ve never really been one for super romantic,  grand gestures, but there’s just something really fantastic about a well-crafted, well planned, creative wedding proposal. This is perhaps one of the best I’ve seen in a while.

Leave a comment


We at Freaking Kidding Me love our Facebook friends as much as the next guy, but perhaps not this much. A woman in the Netherlands has tattooed all 152 of her Facebook friends on her arm. I’ve attached a video of the process, for those who’d like to check it out.

Who hasn’t felt this way?

It’s impossible to watch this video and not smile. Can’t be done.  This song is fantastic. I love this video.  I love the choreography via Poreotix. I’ll admit I was slightly creeped out by the monkey masks, but after watching it a few times this goes away.

My TV Died: First stage grief

3 Comments

My TV died last night.

Night before last I fell asleep with the TV on. I realized it in the middle of the night and I turned it off. When I woke up the following morning I turned it on like I always do and there was nothing. I assumed that maybe I needed new batteries for my remote and I did the unthinkable. I actually went over to the TV to turn it on. Nothing.

I unplugged it and tried again. I went online and look for message forums on how to fix the problem. Nothing. It was a done deal.

Now I’m a TV junkie, so this has been pretty tough for me. I’ve had this TV for several years and have become pretty attached. This story fortunately has a sort of happy ending. I’m getting a pretty good sized income tax refund and have decided to use some of it to buy myself a cool new LCD flat screen TV I could mount on my wall. I’ve been wanting one of these for a wall, but I basically have one room and could not justify buying a TV when I had one that worked. Now I have a valid excuse to get the one I want.

Here’s the bad news. I won’t have said refund for another two weeks, so in the meantime I have no TV. 😦 The past two days I’ve been exploring the online world of television courtesy of Hulu and I plan to put my NetFlix instant view subscription to good use. I also have a stack of books and magazines that are being neglected.  This also gives me plenty of time to update this blog, so you better believe you’re going to get every detail of my life without my TV for the next two weeks.

Has anyone else experienced this? How did you cope? Any suggestions.

Pop Culture Inspiration: Beyonce

Leave a comment

“I always pray that I just have one more week, but eventually it is what it is. It’s time to go there. It’s time to let it all out and do what you were born to do.”

~ Beyonce (from my blog Pop Culture Inspiration) 

Beyonce was describing beginning her concert tour, but we all have that thing in our lives that always wanted to try but just never felt like that timing was right. Maybe its starting a business or writing a book. Maybe its starting a family or trying out a hobby.

The lesson here is, there’s never a perfect time. Rarely do the stars and planets align just right to allow you to do the things you feel you’ve been destined to do. Sometimes you just have to step out on faith and take a chance. You have to be willing to try and realize that whether you fail or succeed there’s a lesson in that.

The longer we wait for the perfect right time, the more time we waste. That valuable time we’re wasting is time we can be doing that thing that makes us happy. Life is short eventually we run out of time and we regret not taking action sooner.

Today, I challenge you to go for it. Don’t wait. Take that first step today.

From my sister during a discussion about one of Lil Wayne’s baby mamas, Lauren London:

I wouldn’t have a baby with Lil Wayne. He looks like a roach. He looks like he should be crawling on the floor looking for crumbs.

From Punkgirl to Naughty librarian: Walking the Runway of Life

Leave a comment

 I share a special kinship with Madonna.

 Both of us are exhibitionists to a degree. Both of us are artists. Both of us feel strongly that sexuality can be a legitimate form of artistic expression (Only one of us has managed to become a millionaire as a result, bet you can’t guess which one).

 One thing I really admire about her is how she’s been able to reinvent herself so many times without losing who she is. I”m old enough to remember the “Like a Virgin” days of black-off-the-shoulder tees, capri leggings, and crosses, to the “True Blue” days of the short blond cut, to the Kabbalah days where she’s tamer, but still just as fierce.

 This came to mind recently because I love to reinvent myself. I change my look pretty often. I’ve read articles where people have said this means I’m unhappy with myself, but I disagree. Getting dressed and doing your hair is one opportunity we have all day to be artistic and creative. It’s the only opportunity some of us wage slaves get. To me it’s like getting to play dress up and assume different personalities every day. Its like being a supermodel on the runway of life every single day. You’ve got to strut it and work it out. Clothes should be fun not just functional. 🙂

 It also says that I’m not just a one-dimensional person. I’m a mulifaceted woman with many sides to me. What mood I’m in will determine what side of me you get to see today.

 My most recent fashion transformation went from a pretty extreme assymetic haircut (sort of pseudo-punk) to a long layers and a pair of ugly glasses. I was going for that whole sexy librarian look. I love the contrast of sexy and educated, because I definitely believe sexy is smart. So over the course of the past few months I went from punk to librarian chick with the change of a hairdo and some glasses.

 How about you? Are you a fashion chameleon or do you stick with good old tried and true? What are some of your favorite looks?
