Today We're FEELIN' GROOVY about:
~Chris Martin. Except for Yellow, I don't really like Coldplay. But after seeing this interview with Chris on 60 Minutes last sunday, now I am in love with him. IN LOVE! I want to have scones and a beer with him in a pub in England and I don't even like beer.
~The daylight hours seem longer (but still freezing!)
~Betty Crocker Warm Delights Mini Molten Chocolate cake. I'm addicted. I thought it was going to be flavorless and I kind of wish it was. It isn't. It's delicious.
~My gross nails are getting better. I am only semi-gross now.
~Really funny emails, twitters and comments intended to make us laugh. They did. THANK YOU!
~Bringing the fire. I love this song but not the video. The video is stupid. This is a great treadmill song.
~Daniela Nardi. If you haven't heard her songs yet, give her a listen. We've profiled her on The Rev It Up! List and she's one of our faves. She's got a beautiful voice, is very insightful, and has the best damn wardrobe EVER. She oozes cool. She's also nominated for Best Female Vocalist in this year's Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards!
Our Bêtes Noires:
~While Karen was in the recovery room at the hospital, the patient next to her (who was alive) had her entire church congregation there singing (loud!) prayers for her. The congregation didn't feel their voices were enough so they all called people all their cell phones on speaker and got them to sing, too. If you are in a hospital recovery room, pray quietly if there are other people in the room. Not everyone is comforted by your church group immediately after surgery. Silent prayer is effective! I assure you, Karen was silently chanting.
~Since Karen is Karen, she went to her operation with perfect waterproof eye-makeup applied. She's never in public without all her makeup on, always! While she was in her bed not sure if she was listening to those prayers being sung off key while dead or alive, her eyes felt really goopy and weird. When she finally got to a mirror, she was horrified to see her eyes were all greasy and bald looking! Her makeup was gone! Surely, she was dead and in hell. Being the good sister I am, I googled and we were both shocked to find that Karen's eyes were goopy and bald because during surgery they were taped shut and smeared with vaseline (or something)! Tape, like we use in art! Tape in art is fine. Having your eyes taped closed is something you only want to know about long after it has happened. Oh my fucking God.
~Valentine's Day is just around the corner and we haven't gotten cards to give anyone yet. It's like Christmas all over again. I think we may opt out. I am pretty sure the people we love know we love them. And those who don't know it feel the need to leave us long ass messages on our voice mail complaining about how we have no time for them but we have time for everyone and everything else. Blech.
