LOL! This was so funny! Newsflash: balloon boy was a hoax!

MJ said...

OUR blogs are the most important news you could ever have!!

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

Holly, hon...I am so YOU! We would be BFF's. I don't watch the news and only know what is going because of the blogs I read!! My younger brother used to tell me, but now I can read about it on the blogs. Also, I feel you about the computer eye twitchy thing!!

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

YAY!! Your WV is gone!!

Ms Bibi said...

Don't feel bad Holly. My best friend found out yesterday that Patrick Swayze died (sorry Charisse) passed away.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

This is one of your best. I'm laughing loudly. I'm a news junkie...I actually read the blogs and have CNN on at the same time (I'm special), so I'm the one that calls my friends and says "turn on CNN" when something is happening.

You know how you have to wear your glasses to read? I got my first pair at about 42. My eyes aren't even all that bad, but I now can't eat without them because the food is blurry. I can still drive and watch THE NEWS!

Oh, and the twitch...dehydration does it to me...drink a bunch of water.

Jane said...

The name of your blog drew me....
LOL I enjoyed your video immensely! As I drank my Misto (cafe au lait/cafe con leche/whatever you want to call it), I scrolled through the blog and found myself smiling...and laughing.

Way to go, ladies! (love the "Golden Girl" list. It's so similar to mine. Strangely, I'm beginning to sound like my mother. Yikes!)

I do believe the blog you were referring to with the Walmart pics is Speaking From the Crib, but I could be wrong.

You gals (love that word!) crack me up; I also spend most of my limited amount of free time reading blogs. Fortunately my husband is a news junkie so I get my info from him.

Jeff Roney's Blog said...

I needed a little triple L video, and you gals always bring the fun. You're chemistry onscreen is awesome. Great stuff, as always.

Stephanie Faris said...

You guys are hilarious! Now that you mention it, though, the monocle was pretty pointless. You could only see out of one eye at a time!

Willoughby said...

I'm almost as bad as you are, Holly. I read the news online, but lately I only read the headlines. So if I just heard that Ted Kennedy died (passed away) and someone asked me about it my response would be, "I don't know, I only read the headline." I'm sure it's all very interesting news, I just haven't taken the time to read it!

LMJ said...

yeah, we do need the monacle back! LOL! Watch, a celebrity will wear one and all of a sudden they will be the new fashion trend!!

I am also behind on the news. I rely on my husband who loves to watch the current news everyday! I always know what's going on through him.

Charisse and Holly said...

5th Sis. - Ok...your comment made us laugh so hard. Both Charisse and I are blogging together today. She almost had to explain it to me! LOL
Lee - I couldn't figure out WV. Thought for sure it was something dirty (maybe Wild Veejayjay...Charisse's suggestion). Was getting ready to e-mail you to find out. DUUUUH!
Bibi - You made me feel better with the PS comment. I could never miss an 80's icon moment like that!
Sue - Our food is also blurry...don't feel bad. Charisse says that's why old people blend their food...they can't tell the difference anyway. Drinking more water now!
Tattoos - Can your hubby leave comments on our blog with current events so that I won't be so behind?!
LMJ - What celebrity should we send the monocle too? Charisse thinks Harry Potter! I think Brad Pitt and his posse should all wear them. Charisse said it could be renamed the "Pittocle".

!!The Obnoxious SAHM!! said...

OMG I am SOOO going to mess with you Holly (its Holly on the right side of the screen?). LOL stay tuned... hee hee!

I love that you guys do this video together. I drink my cup of coffee with you guys and hang out with you!

I have given you guys shout outs on my twitter and facebook telling people to watch you two.

theextraordinaryordinary said...

I love that you do videos! It's so nice to actually SEE the person(people) behind the blog, rather than just making them up in my head :)

So nice to meet you. thank you for your encouraging comments.

You guys are adorable.

(Just so you know, I get the news the same way)

Holly said...

I was a news junkie until I became a blog junkie...now I know about everyone's family, but zippo about the world..something is not right there.

Liz in Virginia said...

Very small worldy -- my tall boy just commented yesterday (commented in person, not on my blog -- because we were in the car) that he thought he should start wearing a monocle (noting by the way that he is blind as a bat in both eyes, not just one).

If the teenagers start doing it you know Madonna and Ashton Kutcher and Kanye West will have them (Holly -- FYI -- these are all currently popular entertainers).

kys said...

I used to get all my news from FB and Twitter. I had to give up those hard hitting sources when I discovered blogging. These yahoos I read only talk about queefs, poop, and holiday crafting. I'm completely clueless in regards to the real world.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Hi...my dishes aren't Mary Engelbreit, they are Dept. 56, but they do look like her stuff.

Cynthia@RunningWithLetters said...

OK, I've been having some eye trouble as well, and, like you, I attribute it to blogging. No twitching--yet, thanks for the warning--just strain and tiredness.

And maybe you won't feel as bad about the Kennedy thing when I tell you that i thought the flags were at half mast over Michael Jackson--sad, but true story!

Hey, does the fact that I'm seeing photos on you blog mean that the whole not down-sizing thing worked? I was curious how that worked out...

blueviolet said...

Wait, was the monocle ever in??

ScoMan said...

I've talked to with a coworker about bringing back the monocle. The only reason I haven't yet is because I want to bring it back with an eye patch, and I haven't decided yet if it would look cooler to have the monocle and eyepatch on the same eye or different eyes.

I didn't watch the news until a group of comedians started doing a news show here. That makes the news fun.

They didn't tell me Ted Kennedy died though, so at least you weren't the last person in the world to find out about that Holly. I guess there's nothing funny about people dying, so they didn't mention it.

ShellyInOz said...

Thanks for the laugh today. I was trying to figure out how I stumbled upon your blog and it was because of Ms. Bibi. Thanks Bibi! I am definitely following, you girls are too funny!

We live in a climate where there is "cyclone season", and whenever there is something that should be causing me to pack up all my worldly belongings and take down the trampoline, my husband rings to let me know, because he knows I am completely clueless. Unfortunately, all my friends are just as clueless, so they aren''t any help in avoiding potentially life-threatening natural disasters.

Love the blog--looking forward to a cuppa with you tomorrow!

Two Normal Moms said...

If you ladies can bring the monocle back, you can cash it in. Do a designer series of monocles. It will be the new height of fashion. Hilarious.
I never had the news on when my son was young so he wouldn't see it - now I don't want to see it!

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Thanks for stopping by...

Yep, you follow me, I follow you! Glad you two are funny! You'll add a little chuckle to my day. You remind me of my and my sister. We're crazy (no offense - haha!)

Theta Mom said...

You guys are always so funny, even when you don't plan to be! I get the news from twitter so I'm in the same social boat!

Preppy Coastee said...

i'm just stopping in real quick to check facebook & my blog! Thank you for the sweet comment; I will be back to check out the video. xxoo

Daffy said...

GUESS WHO GOT TO WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO CLIP START TO FINISH??? Yup! It was moi!!

Charisse - your monocle face is HI-LARIOUS! Almost like turretts or something...Sorry Holly, but I got so caught up in waiting for the monocle face I missed some of what you said...

Did catch the eye twitch...probably because mine DOES IT ALL THE TIME! The doc said it was a thyroid thing - well, they nuked my thyroid and the eye still twitches. Sometimes I have to hold it closed it bugs me so much!

Great post today!!!! And thanks so much for continuing to read my crappy blog LOL... I love your comments. They (and your blog) keep me grounded. I love it!

Dang, I wanna listen and my mom is snoring in the bed next to me on vacation, which I cannot complain about since she's footing the bill. I will listen tomorrow, can't wait to get back and hear! :)

Wait ten or twelve years and it will seem like your viewing the world through one of those 'romantic' gauzy camera filters....the world will TRULY be a more beautiful place.

Martha in PA said...

Reading glasses - my worst nightmare. I have them ALL over the house, and I still can't find them, lots of times they are on the top of my head!

Okay, I forgot my latte, so I'm gonna go make myself a cup of coffee in the Keuring with Pumpkin or Caramel Apple creame!

Shannon said...

Okay no monocles (did I spell that right?) PLEASE! They are awful! And I have that SAME eye twitch and I went to the eye doctor and he said STOP BLOGGING! Not really, but it's totally from eye strain. So I figure in a few years, maybe a few months, I'm gonna be blinking or twitching from both eyes! And how does that other blogger take photos of people at Walmart. I hope she doesnt live near me and go to Target. If she does, I need to know the day she does that so I stay FAR FAR away or I could be her whole topic, braless and in sweats with no makeup. And I am going to start a new page just for you! Ted Kennedy died in AUGUST! You are killing me, lol, I'm adding your e-mail to the CNN News feed! :) I'm way behind, just catching up when I can. Ya'll kill me, love the videos every single time.

Rook No. 17 said...

Tee Hee Hee! I get a kick out of those Walmart photos too. I wouldn't be surprised if one popped up one of these days with a guy wearing lederhosen and a monacle!
