A Youtube Stocking Stuffer

Who has two thumbs, no exams left and only fell on his ass twice today? Me, that's who! Yup, today was my Calculus final, and I don't think I failed! Go me! Yes, I consider the fact that I can rake in something over a 60% a huge friggin' achievement. What can I say? I have low standards for myself. It keeps me from expecting good things to happen.

That's in no way sad.

To celebrate, I'm putting on my lazy pants and kicking up my feet. There's a week left until Christmas, I've finished my shopping, and in a couple weeks, it'll be 2009. Funny, I figured 2008 would be different. But looking back, nope, still stuck in my own life. It's a bittersweet moment really. I'm hopeful that maybe next year will be different, but at the same time, I've been saying that for what, three years? I'm starting to feel like I'm living in a groundhog year, and I'm just gonna keep reliving it over and over again until, what? Where's the the exit sign to follow?

Sorry, that just kinda came out all at once. Not really sure where that came from. But maybe it's better to be hopeful. Better to believe for once that maybe things will change. Alright, stopping with the talking now. Who's ready for some videos?

Okay, I probably could have put Sara Bareilles on my list of guilty pleasures, but to be honest with you, I don't feel guilty about listening to her. And if this video doesn't make you squee a little on the inside, you have no soul.

I don't know how I found this. I started watching Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends during a sick day, figuring it was a stupid kid's show, and holy jeebus was I ever wrong. Either this shit is hysterically funny, or I have the maturity of a five year old. Or both.

Reason #649,025 that I will miss Pushing Daisies once it is unceremoniously taken off the air: Kristin Chenoweth's singing. Remember kids, every time Kristin Chenoweth sings, an angel gets its wings!

Womanizer has finally crossed the threshold from catchy to annoying (this is called the "Umbrella Parallel"), but this cover by Lily Allen makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. H/T to Stacey!

OK Mr. Lazypants, I loved the clips, especially Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and Pushing Daisies. Good job!

I love Cheese!

I can't say I've listened to too much of her, but I unabashedly adore the few songs I have heard by Sara Bareilles (or however you spell her name...I can't be bothered to go look.)

Now that you have passed your exams will you be a multi-million dollar making business person now?
Maybe you could take the place of some of those fucking idiots that have greedily ruined world capitalism!
Clean the slate and start again - that's my answer to the shit the world is in!

"lazy pants" and "still stuck in my own life", it's possible you and I share the same life. It's also possible that the two are somehow related. At least in my lazy pants life. However, I'm entirely too lazy to change it or even to try to verify if there's a connection.

PS: Your verification word is dingi, which makes me laugh for some reason. Probably because I am actually 9.
