Giggles :)

So I pulled up Perez today to see if anyone was WORST dressed lastnight at the Oscars.. and still I find nothing. Man, everyone did a good job. Jerks! But found this video, Jimmy is getting back at his girlfriend. So funny. As Perez mentioned, these are some of the stars in his video (although I still love the one with Matt more):

Featuring appearances by: Brad Pitt, Harrison Ford, Cameron Diaz, Joan Jett, Macy Gray, Robin Williams, Don Cheadle, Pete Wentz, Perry Farrell, Benji and Joel Madden, Lance Bass, Huey Lewis, Josh Groban, McLovin and Meatloaf.

Oh, and PS, I'm sorry I didn't have my Oscars contest this year. I still have the prizes I've been saving all year, I'll come up with something else. Just haven't been feeling 100% yet and didn't get a chance to post it.

Because I'm flippin' brilliant!

I was closing out a screen and noticed tips on how to look younger. And this was #1:

Put your blow-dryer on cold and make your lotions do more: Use your blow-dryer on a cold setting to dry your lotion and sunscreen, says dermatologist Fredric Brandt, MD, author of 10 Minutes/10 Years. Allowing skin care products to set makes your makeup go on more smoothly and last longer.

I already do this! For a long time now I stopped drying my face when I get out of the shower. I leave the little bit of water there, and then blend it in with my lotion. Then when I'm all done, I put my dryer on low cold and use it on my face. Ha! So THAT is why I still look like I'm 19.. and not 40! I knew it! Bwahahahah! Oh shut up.

And I don't know who said not to drink alcohol while taking pain medications, but they are totally wrong! Some muscle relaxers, hydrocodone and Crown Royal and the world is just a more beautiful place :) I am happy to report I can sit up for longer than an hour now. I did drive my car today, so that was a bonus. The baby boy shoveled all the snow from our walkway so I wouldn't fall.. cuz he's wonderful :) And I'm doing well. Slow... but well. OK, a little twitchy.. but overall much better :) ...reaching for Crown Royal....

In with a bang.... or was that a POP??!

So I've always said my 40's would be my best years ever. Pfft. They're not starting out to be the best, so I'm a bit skerred. I was sick all last week, and spent my birthday recovering from a really bad cold. Saturday night I cried and coughed all night. You know those colds where you feel somewhat fine all day, but then as soon as you curl up into bed you hack and heave the night away. So Sunday I decided to take some sort of magical sleeping pill. I slept so well that I didn't budge until I woke up at 7:30 when the alarm went off. I slept with tons of pillows under my head so that I would be vertical.. and slept on my left side. This.. it seems.. is the combination of death.. as I could not move my left leg. I could barely walk down the stairs, and ended up crying on the floor for 2 days. Seems I have bulged a disk, or some sort of icky thing. It's ass. I went to see a doctor Wednesday afternoon and got a few muscle relaxers, and that was OK. But that night ended up at the hospital because I screamed just to walk to the bathroom. ..sigh.. At any rate, I'm able to sit up today in my chair. My father brought me crutches AND a walker today :) So this must be the greatness of turning 40? I have never experienced this kind of pain. Even giving birth was over in one day :)

But I did have a nice birthday regardless. And my husband is wonderful, I just want to say for the record. He has been so sweet to me this week and so very helpful. Even when I'm a psychotic crying babbling idiot screaming at him to leave me alone :) He fixed me up with a comfortable bed on the floor, which is where I was stuck. Helped me get good meds and things to help me stop coughing. Sometimes Valentine's Day can be a box of chocolates.. and other times it's just the reminder that he really does love me for better or for worse :) I can't imagine what I would have done had I been alone. I sure do love that guy :)

My 2nd Favorite :)

This is the one with the grasshopper. Bwahaha!


MrNV is out of town, but we agreed that this was our favorite Super Bowl commercial :) I also loved the Bridgestone commercial where the squirrel screams.. then all the other animals screamed.. and the little grasshopper. That grasshopper screaming killed me! :)

This is a funny video Sarah Silverman made for her boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel. I don't like her that much, but she's really funny in this. And I do love Matt Damon :) He can be so serious, but so funny. He also played a rocker in some silly movie, European Road Trip or something? Where he stole some guy's girlfriend. He was my favorite part of the whole movie :)
