Christian the Lion Video AKA God, I'm Still Embarassing


source
If you recall a few weeks ago I posted the video of Christian the Lion and told everyone how seeing that lion, who had been reintroduced to the wild, run to his care-takers and lick their faces like a little kitty cat made me cry. At work. At my desk.Whitney belting out "I Will Always Love You" didn't help the situation.

After seeing the video I tried to find out more about the video but didn't really come up with much. Well thanks to CuteOverload posting the video (thats where I saw it first) about a billion people have seen it.

Today while I was getting ready for work, eating my cereal in my pajamas. Just watching the Today show, what comes on ? The damn lion video. Cue tears ! Then of course they found Christian's care takers and interviewed them. They also made sure to show the video for the entire length of the interview. It played 4 times ! I was sobbing all over my Special K with berries.

So for any of you that are interested click here for an update on Christian and his people.

Watch this video is you want to cry into your own cereal:

It Ain't Easy

being a house rabbit. Havin your mom petting your freakin head all the time telling you how cute you are. Gettin locked out of the closets and scolded for chewing up the carpet. Life's real real hard for a fuzzy bunny. Well, at least there's central air....

I'm so excited ! I'm so excited!

Turns out that there isn't a whole lot on tv at 6:05 am. When I get to the gym I have a sure fire set up for entertainment. I strategically choose my elliptical machine based on tv availability. I need two. Sorry. I'm greedy.

I set one to the news and the other to TBS, yeah thats right, The Broadcasting Superstation. Why you ask ? Zach Morris, thats why. Yes my friends, Saved by The Bell is on from 6-7 am. It's fabulous. Not only am I entertained by the kids' whacky high school shenanigans, but you learn valuable life lessons. Like, weed isn't cool and apparently neither is pre-marital sex.

I also read today on D-Listed that Dustin Diamond AKA Publicity Whore Numero Uno AKA Screech is writing a tell all book titled "Behind the Bell". I will most definitely be purchasing this bestseller!

In the mean time, I can enjoy this:

John Mayer, You Rock My World

I love you. Oh wait, did I just say that. I mean I love your music. John Mayer at Usana was awesome. He put on an amazing show! I love Continuum but I think my favorite song last night was his cover of Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" It was great.

Not to mention that John Mayer is a comedian and he likes the F word. Could he be more perfect, doubts it.

We all had a great time.





I think Jake and I were yelling "More Mayer! More Mayer!"

Highlights:
We were far enough away that we didn't have to see John Mayer's face squishing out the lyrics. I've seen it before, it isn't a pretty sight. He would agree, he calls his face the "Note Squeezer."

Jake and I managed to sneak up the the front section for a few songs. After a million "Where are you guys??" texts we went back to the grass. It was sweet.

Hot dancing and Cody acting boopsy.

Even John Mayer fans sometimes have mullets. Lucky me.

Green socks are overrated! Oh wait, did he say clean socks ?

Lowlights:
Jake called some ladies "Robust" and got bitch slapped. I missed it. I always miss the good parts.

John Mayer hates fat chicks!! He only sells his shirts in medium. And since they are American Apparel, really that is a small. Guess I will be buying one online.

Walking home was a real bitch. I think we decided it was 2 miles, but felt like 99.

It could possibly have been the best $40 I have ever spent in my life.

Fiddling with Photoshop

I've been gradually tinkering with Photoshop. Here a few pictures that I have edited. Let me know what you think.

Before/After
Booker T. Rabbit






The tiniest of tiny grasshoppers. He was hanging out on our porch.




Clouds at East Canyon



Now looking at them, I think the grasshopper got a bit neon. Let's just say he loved the early 90's and I sent him back there.

Search Surprises

I love Etsy. If you want something quirky and original there is no better place to get it. Occasionally I'll just browse through the listings but most often I use the search tool.

Today I typed in "bunny" and this is one of the results.

Not what I expected. But made for a really great laugh. She has had 53 sales so she must have found her target audience!

Give Life ! Give Blood!



I stumbled across Serenity's blog. She is a little girl who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. Her mom and dad blog about their experiences. It is unreal the things that they are dealing with. I can't believe such a little person has to deal with such a terrible disease.They are such a brave family. They have create The Serenity Foundation to help their dughter and hopefully, other kids with cancer.

They are holding a blood drive July 30th from 3-8pm in Draper. ARUP Blood Services is hosting an on-site blood drive at:
Twelve Horses
13961 Minuteman Dr. Suite 125
Draper UT

I'm really going to try hard to go. The last time I gave blood was in High School. I figure I'm about due. According to ARUP only 4% of eligible donors actually give blood. That means there is 96% of the population who could donate but don't.

If you are unable to go to this blood drive visit The Salt Lake Chapter of the American Red Cross. You can donate through them anytime.

Brave the needle ! Give Blood! Give Life!!

Fa-resh!

Last night I went the the first concert of the 2008 Twilight Concert Series at Gallivan Center. We saw The Roots. They had some funky fresh beats mang. It was fun.

The people at Gallivan? Opposite of Fresh.

Minus the beer line. It seems at our door events we are forever in the damn beer line! they need more beer options! And the Wine line should be seperate! I'm just saying. It takes FOR-EV-ER!

I ran in to an old friend. It was really really great to see her. It reminded me that while other friendships seems to be on hiatus, there are new people to meet and old friends to find.

I'm excited to see Nada Surf in August. They do a cover of "If You Leave" it is super excellent. I love covers.


I'm going to Lagoon Saturday. God help me!

Weekend Re-cap and misceallaneous babbling.....

-The 4th was lots of fun. We went to a BBQ at our friends house. I made friends with a baby. She is 6 weeks old. We had a good time, I was dishing the hot goss to her about all the people in attendance. I'm sure we will be life long friends. She also like Stu.


-Saturday and Sunday we went to the cabby. It was fun. We brought Booker. She loved being outside. Stu's little cousins wanted to hold her, feed her, pet her, walk her, etc. They were over about every 10 minutes to see how she was doing.

-I want a fancy camera. Real professional like. I've got my heart set on the Nikon D80 SLR digital camera. Now could someone just give me say $900? Anyone ? No. Ok. Guess I'll start saving up.

- I've been going to the gym every morning at 6. Turns out even when you do 500 calories of cardio eating an ice cream sandwich for lunch really negates any benefits of said exercise. So I feel like I'm punishing myself.

-I'm 100 percent sure I worked at least half the day yesterday with a hole in the ass of my pants. Classy.

Well thats pretty much it. Tonight we are going to a Bee's game with T'ann and Tyler. There are usually some colorful people in attendance. I'm sure I'll have a full report.

God, I'm embarassing.....

I saw this video today on CuteOverload and I cried. At my desk.
Yeah, I'm embarrassing.



I'm not sure if it was the loving lion that got me or their hot hot feathered hair-do's.

Sing it Whitney. Sing it.
