This, That & The Other Thing. The Video/TV Edition; Now With More Blonde Moments.

I’m still blown away with the viral video of the guy who became famous for drinking Cranberry juice while catching a ride behind a truck on his skateboard; was it a phenomenal video? No. Did you know he did this because his vehicle broke down and he was hitching a ride and decided to tik Tok himself? When I was a kid, you weren’t supposed to tik tok yourself; it was frowned upon.

Isn’t it silly how our world is now? You do one thing, be it funny, good, bad or otherwise and you can become famous. I’d rather not be famous; think of the things you can’t get away with. But this silly video brought new life into the Fleetwood Mac Song too; so I suppose that is a positive.

Cash me outside boo.


The Coach and I watched Hillbilly Elegy on Netflix this past weekend. It was really good; a true story of a rural family struggling with drug use. Glenn Close? THE Transformation. It’s kind of sad family tale, that tugs at my soft heart, but spoiler alert, there is a semi-happy ending. Hey, if you’re knee deep in Hallmark movies, this will be a departure.


You know that song Is This Love by Bob Marley? It’s one of my favorites and it plays quite a bit on my John Mayer Pandora station that I listen to all.the.time. One line always perplexed me though and forgive me, but I often have these blonde moments.

Wanna love you and treat you right
I wanna love you
Every day and every night
We’ll be together
With a roof right over our heads
We’ll share the shelter
Of my single bed
We’ll share the same room, yeah


For Jah provide the breadIs this love, is this love, is this love, is this love that I’m feelin’?
Is this love, is this love, is this love, is this love that I’m feelin’?

OF MY SINGLE BED. For the longest time I couldn’t figure out why he would add in what size bed he was sleeping on? Was he proud that he couldn’t afford or have room for a queen bed, much less a king size? What grown man sleeps on a single/twin sized bed? And then one day, a lightbulb went off and I realized he just meant the one bed. ONE BED SUZANNE!

HA! Seriously, this is almost as bad as when I thought Justin Timberlakes song: “SexyBack” meant someones actual BACK; like they’ve been working out ridding themselves of back fat. *slaps hand to forehead after I realized what he meant* Stella getting her groove back, etc…

I never said it was easy being me….you’d be exhausted too!

Please, tell me your best screwed up song lyrics!

Make it a good day.

XOXO

  1. We watched Hillbilly Elegy too, it was really sad. I remember when the book came out. Long story but there was some drama because of the guy who wrote it. We need to TALK because I am too lazy to write it.

    So it’s like saying He got his Sexy back? Like it came back? Not like he’s got a sexy back?

  2. Listen, when I hear “single bed”, I think of “twin bed”, too. It’s the practical wife/mom hybrid within us. Men don’t have to buy sheets. That’s why their lyrics are often dumb.

  3. I did not hear about that viral video. I should definitely start tic tock-ing because dumb stuff goes down over here on the regular (thinking split milk carton). This is just more proof that I live under a rock. I rely on my morning news program to share the latest in viral stuff, but I’ve not been totally tuned in to my morning news lately.

    I’m glad to hear you liked Hillbilly Elegy. It got mediocre reviews from the guy on my morning news show, but I still kind of want to see it.

    I know there are a MILLION lyrics that I screw up, because I am hardly a poster child for MTV, but all I can think of is the song in the sequel to Caddy Shack or maybe the original. I think it is supposed to be ‘I’m all right,’ but my roommate in college thought it was, ‘Ham on rye.’ Maybe she was hungry.

    I guess I never gave sexy back much thought, but now that you mention it, is it getting back into being sexy? Super relieved that Kari asked for clarification too.

    Oh my gosh, the twin bed thing is hilarious. I never paid attention to those lyrics, but I agree totally with Nance. I would’ve thought twin bed too.

  4. I have not seen that video but I don’t go on TikTok. I have enough dealing with Facebook and Instrgram these days! I will definitely watch The Hillbily Elegy. My husband and I are always looking for stuff to watch. We just finished 11-22-63 on Hulu. It was really good!

    I’ve not seen the tick Tik Tok yet but I bet my kids have! Several people have mentioned Hillbilly Elegy so I guess I will have to check it out.
