A few Elsewhere Blogging links, because I haven’t done this in a while:

• I have started going to this uber-spendy personal trainer gym and I don’t want to stop but it’s wicked expensive. Justifiable cost, or financial insanity?

• Speaking of expensive shit, are these fancy-ass products worth their pricetag? (I forgot to include premium denim jeans in this post, to which my answer is a YES YES YES, beg borrow or steal the cash if you have to, I promise that the right pair of break-the-bank jeans is worth every single penny.)

• Bodies in Motivation blogs have been updated a bit so it should be easier to see who’s writing each post, and navigate through them. I am so loving these blogs, and I hope you are too.

Lastly, I made a little video of Dylan in honor of this inexplicably hilarious Denny’s ad, and if you ever hear me say I’m “too busy” to do something, just remind me of the ENTIRE AFTERNOON I spent drawing a mustache on my kid’s face, tying up his arms and legs, and wrestling with iMovie in order to produce a freaking 10-second clip.

Dylan is all kinds of accommodating. Neither of my kids would EVER sit still for that. And hoo boy, there would be shrieking. The look on his face is priceless. So funny.

Oh, Lord. I CANT STOP watching the Dylan nanerpuss … amazing.

see, to me, the look on his face is not “wtf is going on?” but more of a “just wait until you are old and relying on me to care for you and see what kind of shit i pull.”

1) I totally appreciate your commitment to your craft. That video is AWESOME

2) I belonged to an ultra spendy gym like that before we moved up to WA, and I miss it so much. It was a great gym, and I couldn’t find anything like it (apparently I didn’t look hard enough). But that was before kids when I had actual free time.

That is one of the funniest things I have seen in a long time and I will surely not get any work done today because I’ll be watching it over and over again!

Oh how I wish that video were longer – it is hilarious!

The actual commercial banana kind of freaks me out.

You are a genius.

Do not tell my mother, but that video almost made me sort of maybe want a baby. But only to draw mustaches on and the like.

I’ve now watched that video about a dozen times and each and every time I laugh till my sides hurt.

I’m adding it to my favorites to use when I need a good laugh. :) Thanks, Linda!

I always read your blog during my lunch break. I seriously have to rethink this, though, because I nearly choke to death laughing almost every day. I just hope it doesn’t take my co-workers too long to find me! Thank you for being a bright spot in my workday.

Just sent you my latest BiM contribution… let me know if you need me to make any changes. And that video is going into my YouTube favorites to be available any time I need to crack up.

This will definitely help my case of the Mondays. Nicely done. We would have had to tranquilize my son for him to sit there while I tied puppet strings to his arms and legs.

Linda, I have loved you for a long time. I think that I love you now more than I have ever before, though.

This? Was fucking amazing.

(have you seen the remix with the baby on you tube? oh, they should be ashamed since you are a fucking imovie master with a cute ass kid.)

NANERPUS! I laughed my damn ass off. I saw this on posted with your flickr stuff last night. I was laughing/snorting so hard my dog started whining….I think he thought I was dying. You crack me up! That was the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time. That is a keeper for d’s baby time capsule!

Holy leaping sea-monsters batman, that was hilarious! I honestly think that the best part of having children will be capturing them doing ridiculous shit on video. And by the way, if you haven’t seen “David at the dentist”, google that shit, cause it’s pretty damn funny too.

Ah, kids on drugs, just like when I was a kid.

Love it!

And a little (possible) background on that Denny’s commercial … might be a take-off on Carvel ads from the 70s. I didn’t grow up in the Northeast, but my Queens-bred hubby has oddly fond memories of Cookie Puss and Fudgie the Whale. Totally bizarre and more than a little disturbing.

“Yeah and like seriously, she totally had strings attached to him and everything..and she was…*choke* making him dance..and yeah it was funny..but oh my GAWD..he’s probably going to grow up to be a pancake flipper or some shit..this woman has got to be STOPPED!”

In all seriousness you are my hero..now I need to forward this to all of my friends..

You have made me laugh many times over the years. But that might have just taken the cake, errr, banana.

Ha, that video clip is absolutely glorious. I can even see him rehashing it in therapy: “she made me a mustached puppet on the INTERNET. I don’t even LIKE Denny’s!”

I lurk around here a lot, but I just had to come out of the shadows to comment on the adorableness of baby nannerpuss! He looks like he’s thinking, “no point in resisting, might as well humor them…” So cute!!

Sundry — one morning in 2059, you will awaken in your nursing home bed and find yourself wearing yellow pajamas, with strings attached to your appendages and Dylan will be filming HIS version of this commercial! Revenge is sweet! (Oh, and by the way, at that age, he won’t need to draw a mustache on you – it comes naturally after age 45.)

Oh dear. That was funny! I love the ambiguous look on Dylan’s face – is he bored? Disgusted? Hard to say…our favorite part of the real commercial is when one of Nanerpus’ googly eyes falls off. Guess THAT would be tough to recreate at home, though.

I cannot stop watching this video and laughing my ass off each time.
