Funny Friday – Introducing Average Dan

March 30th, 2012 | Posted by Bryn in Funny Friday - (Comments Off on Funny Friday – Introducing Average Dan)

My extremely entertaining brother-in-law is “Average Dan” on Fox 23 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A few months ago, he shot a series of promotional videos, some of which I’ve included here. Be sure to check him out on Fox 23 and click here to read his reviews of above average businesses in the Tulsa area.

The maniacs and I spent at least a half hour the other day watching the ten second commercials over and over and over. And laughing.

The five second rule should not be questioned. You can tell its a rule. How? Because of the way it is. Deal with it.

Sneezing is a serious health condition. Do it carefully and responsibly.

On Average, people laugh 17 times a day. In order to reach my daily laugh quota, sometimes I have to find a loophole, so I made this video for those days when I need a pinch-hitter and don’t feel like chuckling one bit.

Pledge to Wear Black on Fridays to End Abortion in America

March 25th, 2012 | Posted by Bryn in Faith | Kids - (Comments Off on Pledge to Wear Black on Fridays to End Abortion in America)

AbortionBlackout.com is turning into a movement in the United States. Their short video (click below to view) explains simple statistics regarding abortions. It’s heartbreaking to realize how many children we’ve lost to abortion just in the last 30+ years.

Even if you feel you can’t participate in the Abortion Blackout each Friday, please pray for the children lost to abortion, their mothers and fathers who are probably suffering, and the healthcare professionals that they may have a change of heart.

Thank you Father Daren for bringing this movement to my attention. Feel free to reblog, share on Facebook, Pin It, Tweet about it, just spread the news about the Abortion Blackout.

The Saturday Spruce-Up…

February 18th, 2012 | Posted by Bryn in The Saturday Spruce-Up - (Comments Off on The Saturday Spruce-Up…)

…was pretty boring this week. I cleaned out my medicine cabinet, my entire laundry room, and my towel cabinet in my bathroom, but nothing that makes for good photos.

So instead, I thought I’d post a song I discovered a couple of years ago: the ONLY song I’ve ever heard with my name in it! And they even spelled it right!

Bryn by Vampire Weekend

Ion displacement
Won’t work in the basement 
Especially when i’m not with you
Here in the heartland
A feelin so startlin
I dont know what i should do

Oh Bryn, you see through the dark
Right past the fireflies that sleep in my heart
You know its easy to see
Wait for the season to come back to me

Nights by the ocean
A westerly motion
That moves california to sea
Eyes like a seagull
No kansas palm beetle
Could ever come close to that free

Oh Bryn, you see through the dark
Right past the fireflies that sleep in my heart
You know its easy to see
Wait for the season to come back to me

I don’t really know what the song is about, except that he likes a girl named Bryn. I may not be “Sweet Caroline” or “My Sharona”, but this is one for all the Bryn’s out there!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Make-A-List Monday: Music Trivia

February 6th, 2012 | Posted by Bryn in Make-A-List Monday - (Comments Off on Make-A-List Monday: Music Trivia)

A couple weekends ago, my honey and I participated in the QND Music Trivia Night to benefit our local Catholic high school. My honey is so great at identifying songs and bands, and I knew he’d be a real asset to our team. I, on the other hand, can know every single word to a song, but I won’t know who sings it or event the name of it.

So when we were answering questions at the trivia night, my honey and the others at our table answered all the questions–except one. I knew the answer to exactly ONE question. And it’s because I was dancer growing up. I recognized “Waltz of the Flowers” by Tchaikovsky because I was in the Nutcracker ballet at least five times.

But I do know about other music and other bands, so here is a list of bands I WISH they’d have asked about at Music Trivia Night:

1. Abba – my kids and I love the movie Mamma Mia! and watch it fairly regularly. I’d have known Abba from a mile away. Plus I love them.

Don’t act like you don’t love it.

2. Matchbox 20 – Their album Yourself or Someone Like You was the first CD I ever bought. I think I know almost every word to every song. And I still love it.

“Hang” was my favorite. Still good music.

3. Sublime – I have never smoked any type of illegal drugs, but Sublime is also one of my all time favorites. Their self-titled album was one of the few CDs I listened to over and over and over in high school.

This version is edited so there are no “bad words.” Your welcome, Mom.

4. Green Day – My brother introduced me to Green Day, and it was another one of those bands that I listened to over and over.

I don’t care for their new stuff, but Dookie was a winner.

5. Lyrics from Disney princess songs – I know pretty much all of these. I could sing this Little Mermaid one in my sleep.

“Lookin’ around here you’d think, ‘Sure, she’s got everything!'”

Although I only knew one answer at Music Trivia Night, I just like what I like. Now I’m going to get back to watching Mamma Mia! with my two-year-old. 🙂

Funny Friday – Dad Life

My honey reminded  me of this video this morning, and I had to share. Some of it is too true!

Hope all you Black Friday shoppers got all your good deals this morning. I opted to stay in, get some sleep and play with my maniacs. This is the good life.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Man vs. Man – Funny Friday

Bruder, a band based in Tulsa, OK, made this video a couple of years ago. The music is great, and the video is hilarious.

Oh yeah, and my brother-in-law is the bald guy. Enjoy!
