More blasting of the past
I had to start this post with another blast from the past. Bubba reminded me of something that I had to Google. Ok, show of hands. Who remembers the BluBlocker sunglasses commercial from the 80s?? You know the one...those horrible yellow-orange sunglasses and the commercial with that guy doing the BluBlocker Rap. Anyone? I couldn't find a screenshot of the commercial or a picture of the guy rapping, but I found an old website so you can click and hear the rap. CLICK ME!

Oh, oh!!! Wait..even better..I just found a better site. First,though, here's a picture. Who could forget that big sombrero? And here's the better site complete with video! Yes, I said, VIDEO! How cool is that? Ok, enough of that past blast.

Ok, before I talk about anything else...go over to my side bar and click on my new renter! This week, my tenant is the wonderful and talented Melanie? over at the Plaid Toaster? I'm not making her a link here...so you have to go over there.....
<<<<<-------and click her thumbnail? (Question marks are a sort of inside joke?Melanie will get it?) Don't get too used to that thumbnail though. She changes the look of her blog more than just about any other blogger out there. Melanie is a "mommy blogger" sometimes..AND? Yep, she's part of the familia....the HWM otherwise known as the House Wife Mafia. Anway, check her out. You'll like her. I promise. Get to clickin'!

I've been hanging out waaaay too much over on the Shout Box at Blog Explosion. It's quite addictive. Not really sure where I was going with this thought, so, nevermind.

I LOVES me some Barney on "How I Met Your Mother." I am sure I have already mentioned this, but I had to say it again. He makes me laugh every week!! This is Barney.Yes, indeed that is...DOOGIE HOWSER! But really, he is so funny on this new show. You should watch. "DEE...wait for it...NIED!!" (When will I be too old to watch a show about a group of twenty-something friends??)

Was Grey's Anatomy good this week or what? I was sooo mad at Derek for not walking through that door at the end!! And? My favorite character is George. Grey's Anatomy fans? Talk to me!! His funniest line to date..."Make the lambs stop screaming."

I am so fat, you guys. Does anyone want to pay for a trainer, personal grocery shopper, and chef for me? No? Fine, I see how you all are. Fairblogger friends.

Lost is on tomorrow! Oh, wait, it's a rerun al-freakin-ready! ABC is a slutty whore of a network! Shhh..don't tell them I said that.

I heart Desparate Housewives again after Sunday's episode. I was starting to get a little...put off..by the writing, but this past episode was really funny. It answered some questions...and left us with more questions.

Um, can I just say that my child..my daughter..my first born...is going to SADIE'S next weekend!! *I* just went to Sadie's like, LAST WEEK. Jeez. I am O to the LD! I'll post my very own Sadie's photos from 1988 and 1989 next week.

Hey, if you don't read Miss Zoot you are missing out on laughter regarding ass sweat and Krispy Kreme donuts. Oh, and she'll be having her baby very, very soon. She is in the hospital as I type. Go for a visit.

Ok, I had better stop now and post this so these two will shut up about it already! ;) Wendy and Sea, it was so worth the wait, eh?? hee hee

    Very cool renter this week. Went and commented.

    You're not fat. And I'll pay for a trainer for you after I buy my condo.

    Are you getting out for a walk or anything? See, I could be your trainer.

    I adore Neil Patrick Harris on the new show. I watch it for him.

    NO WAY. I TOTALLY REMEMBER THAT COMMERCIAL. BUT THE REAL FUNNY PART IS THAT I SEE DR. GEEK EVERYDAY ON HOLLYWOOD BLVD. BY MANN'S CHINESE THEATRE. He has his microphone and does raps to people's names. I will request the blueblocker rap next time ;)

    Shane, are you serious? That is too, cool. You totally have to ask him to do the blu blockers rap!

    Ang? Ang? Ang? Thank you for having me this week. I love the same shows you do. Hooked on them all and I love George but usually spend my time staring at Patrick Dempsey...yum yum...the boy has grown up since "Can't buy me love" in the eighties.

    Oh and about my thumbnail...I have only changed my blog three times and it is scheduled for another FINAL ho-down in a couple weeks. Been experienting..ya know all the kids are doing it now, lol.

    Oh my gosh, Angie. I was in a store the other day and I was desperately trying to remember the name of those sunglasses. It wouldn't come to me. Thank you so much for the relief. My mind can rest easy now. Your update was definitely worth the wait :)

    I really hope "How I Met Your Mother" stays on the air. Barney's my favorite, too! He plays that role so well!

    "Grey's Anatomy" is incredible, too.

    I was actually feeling a little sick at my stomach for poor Meredith...
    I love that show with an unending passion. :)

    I TOTALLY remember the blu-blockers! I'm glad you posted that...

    My husband and I really enjoy How I met your mother! LOL Barney could not be any farther from the doogie personality, but he does it so well! He cracks me up. SUITE UP!
