Little Moments

Current Mood:
CC is listening to: Little Moments--Brad Paisley

Valentine's Day isn't for another month yet, but I saw this video this morning and really wanted to post it. I had to laugh because the part about the girl sleeping on the guy's arm is SO me :-).

...Okay add snoring to the equation and THEN that would be so me :-).

You'll probably recognize Brad Paisley's wife in the end: it's Kimberly Williams, the girl who played Steve Martin's daughter (Annie Banks) in the "Father of the Bride" movies :-).


Well I'll never forget the first time that I heard
That pretty mouth say that dirty word--
And I can't even remember now what she backed my truck into,
But she covered her mouth and her face got red,
And she just looked so darn cute...
That I couldn't even act like I was mad...
Yeah, I live for little moments like that.

Well that's like just last year on my birthday--
She lost all track of time and burnt the cake.
And every smoke detector in the house was goin' off...
And she was just about the cry until I took her in my arms
And I tried not to let her see me laugh...
Yeah, I live for little moments like that.

I know she's not perfect, but she tries so hard for me...
And I thank God that she isn't, 'cause how boring would that be?
It's the little imperfections, it's the sudden change in plans...
When she misreads the directions and we're lost but holdin' hands...
Yeah, I live for little moments like that.

When she's layin' on my shoulder on the sofa in the dark
And about the time she falls asleep, so does my right arm...
And I want so bad to move it 'cause it's tinglin' and it's numb...
But she looks so much like an angel that I don't wanna wake her up
Yeah, I live for little moments...
When she steals my heart again and doesn't even know it
Yeah, I live for little moments like that.

Ohmigod, he did NOT just say that!

Current Mood:
CC is listening to: An episode of Cash Cab on Discovery Channel

I could NOT stop laughing when I saw this on TV. Okay, quick set up: Cash Cab is a game show on Discovery Channel where people answer general knowledge questions all the way to their destination. Three strikes, you're out.

The first question gives you an idea of how Cash Cab works. It's the NEXT question that's a gem :-). What is SO funny is that, judging by his expression, the host (Ben Bailey) seems to know exactly what the wrong answer means :-). If you happen to know what the wrong answer means as well, you'll be dying in your chair :-).

If you DON'T know what it means and you want to look it up, just a note: NSFW :-).

After-Holiday Shopping

Current Mood:
CC is listening to: Everything--Michael Buble (Everything)

I love after-holiday sales--it's when you get a chance to indulge and buy stuff that you normally wouldn't because the original prices were too expensive :-). I had four boxes outside my front door this morning with all the stuff I'd ordered after Christmas...


Mickey Thermal Shirt for Her - Was: $26.50, Now $11.39

Tinker Bell Silhouette Tailored Shirt for Her - Was $29.50, Now $12.00

Alice in Wonderland Long Sleeve Tee For Her - Was: $16.50, Now $7.79

Tinker Bell Long Sleeve Tee For Her - Was: $16.50, Now $7.79

Sleeping Beauty Long Sleeve Tee For Her - Was: $16.50, Now $7.79

Grumpy Rugby Sweater for Him - Was: $34.50, now $15.00. Steve's already fallen in love with this sweater, it's so SOFT.

Total was supposed to be $102.94, but I saved $41.18 and only needed to pay $61.76 :-).

The other boxes were from Barnes and

Holidays on Ice (Audiobook) by David Sedaris. Read by David Sedaris, Ann Magnuson, and Amy Sedaris - Was $17.00, Now $6.98. This has the "Santaland Diaries" audio essay that I'd written about a few blog entries ago, plus a few more :-).

A Charlie Brown Christmas Soundtrack - Was $11.99, Now $9.99

The Skilled Negotiator: Mastering the Language of Engagement by Kathleen Kelley Reardon - Was $27.95, Now $1.99 (Yes you read that right, $1.99. They have SO many books that are on sale for $2.00)

Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim: Essays (Audiobook) by David Sedaris - Was $26.98, now $5.99

Classical Cartoons CD - $2.98 (This wasn't on sale, but it was so cheap I'd figure I'd get it anyway :-))

The best part about the Barnes & Noble purchases was that I'd gotten a $25 B & N gift card for Christmas, and the shipping is free if you order over $25 worth of stuff. My total bill? $5.51. Sweet :-).

I'd also bought a couple of other books at regular price when Steve and I went to the bookstore on New Year's Day...

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Conversational Sign Language Illustrated (Complete Idiot's Guide Series) - This isn't ASL (ASL has a more specific structure), this is PSL (Pidgin Sign Lanuage), and it teaches you the important signs that would allow you to communicate with deaf people. So instead of signing something like, "My-name-is-Cecille," you'd sign "Me-Cecille." I think this will be a great start to increasing sign language proficiency--I get all the important words first, then work on structure later :-).

Learn American Sign Language by Arlene Rice (Paperback - Booklet and 86 Flashcards) - I figured using flashcards would be a great way for me to review :-).

Yeah, I'm going to be busy the next couple of months catching up on my personal reading :-)
