Happy Shit - 2/22/13

The end of another week and again, I am pretty pumped it is over.

The construction by our house has been a complete bitch lately. Not only do they start work at 7am Monday through Saturday (Fucking Saturday. What the shit guys?!), they have detoured all the traffic (including school buses and large trucks) onto our tiny side road. Our road which, when it isn't winter, it is barely wide enough for two cars and right now it is wide enough for maybe one and a half. Also, once you get past that clusterfuck, it takes an extra 20-30 minutes to get down a stretch of road that usually takes less than 5 minutes to traverse. Awesome.
Construction in New England: because your
commute obviously doesn't suck enough!
And then on Wednesday, I dumped an entire cup of coffee on my lap first thing in the morning at work and had to stay there like that for nine hours. All damp and smelling of really shitty coffee.
And yes, the coffee was very warm.
Flesh-scaldingly hot would be a better description.
Anyway, here is the fun (and disgusting) fact of the week: Most dust particles in your house and office are made from dead skin cells of all the people and animals that have been there.
Did anyone else just get the urge to dust everything while
wearing a bio-hazard suit?
Now, on the the happy shit!

This awesome commercial about a cat that came with a catalog-ordered bedroom set.
Available in black, brown or holiday...?
My brain does this shit to me all the time...
You are trying to sleep? Let's think of all the things!
And if you haven't seen the new cool trend on YouTube, it is called the Harlem Shake. The original video is here, but this is my favorite version so far. Thanks Norwegian Army for being awesome!
It is my favorite possibly because of the two dudes in
mummy sleeping bags writhing on the ground. Or that
dude banging his head against the wall repeatedly.
Or that dude falling out the window. Hard to say really...
Or this version with the Pixiwoo girls and their kids.
It looks fine and then it all goes sideways.
This awesome story about a small-town paper in Mississippi that told all the bigots to suck it when they published an article about the first gay marriage in the county.
Congrats on your marriage Crystal and Jessica!
And these awesome iPad holders.
It has a joystick!
 This "makeup tutorial" made by one of the Sam's (Pixiwoo artist) daughter, Lilly.
Blending is important.
And finally, the album "Invincible" by Two Steps From Hell. These guys are awesome and have written a lot of background music for video games and movies.
Look at the bitchin' album art!
You know they are serious when there is a dude in
a helmet on the front in a dark sepia tone.
And that is it for this week. I hope you all have a great weekend!

I love the Harlem Shake. I actually had to explain it to a couple of friends over the weekend... Then I made them like it too... By use of force.

Hugs!

I made my husband watch, like, ALL OF THE VIDEOS of the Harlem Shake. Because it's awesome and when you want to share something awesome with the world, you start with the people you love.
