High Five

It is finally Friday. I don’t know if it was the oppressive heat, the insanity at work, or the return from my mini-vacation, but this has been the longest week on record. It must have lasted at least twenty days. Thankfully this long, boring work week has been filled with amazing videos for me to discover online. Yes, all five of this week’s top five things are videos. Why? Cuz…I like videos and cuz I didn’t find anything else to be really jaunty about.

Have you ever wondered what happens when wholesome European’s interact with the US supermarket shopping phenomenon known as Walmart? I had not before this week. That was until I stumbled upon this video of two Brits enjoying their first excursion to the land Sam.

MTV has been a trendsetter for over 30 years now. Everyone dressed like Madonna in the 80s because of MTV and now everyone laughs at New Jersey because of MTV. Well that last bit sorta started before MTV. Any who, back in 1995, MTV was on top of the latest trend called the internet. They have crazy popular celebrities like Sandra Bullock and some musicians no one remembers talking about how awesome and attractive the web is. They even have Newt Gingrich talking about porn. What more could you want?

One of my all time youtube obsessions is back. Remember the faux Chloe Sevigny who makes being Chloe so glamorous but accessible to use lowly people? She’s back and this time she’s talking grilled meat.

I insanely miss Doctor Who. Just as we were settling into a most amazing and incredible season they lopped it in half and made us wait FOREVER for more. I am grateful for any and all Who that crosses my path. When I saw the teaser for the seasons return, I was jumping for joy. Literally.

And finally this week, we have a video that might possibly be my favorite net phenom of all time. I have watched this video of an English Bulldog named Gus trying to have it all no fewer than twice a day since I discovered it. It is adorable, entertaining and hilarious. I hope you enjoy it over and over.

So that’s all the videos I can force you to watch this week: Brits at Walmart, MTV on the Net, Chloe does Barbecue, Doctor Who teases a return, and Gus the super adorable dog! What made your list?

  1. I laughed out loud at the tea in petrol cans comment. They are too cute. I can imagine a super-Walmart could be a bit of a culture shock.

    I’m so glad sling-backs are making a come-back.

    Gus gets points for persistence.

    My list is last day before vacation, last day in my current position!!!!!!!, great lunch out with a colleague yesterday (I will miss her but no one else), getting to see my kidlet on Saturday (who has yet to run over any dogs or kids on bikes as my mother lets her drive their van – GET OFF THE ROAD PEOPLE!), blueberry pie.

  2. I’ll watch the vids when I get home, but I gotta tell ya, mikey, I am underimpressed with this season of Dr. Who. It’s still better than most crap produced on American TV, but I’ve been catching reruns of the 9th and 10th Doctor episodes on BBCAmerica, and when comparted to them, this season just frankly pales.


  3. “Jaunty” = love that word.

    “Haaay. This conversation that you’re having in real time with someone… is now suddenly obscene!” Sounds like a new slogan for C&R.

  4. I love Chloe!
    And Brits in Wal-mart. My favorite part was the composition book tshirt match. They would be horrified as “People of Wal-mart”.
    That was one persistent dog.
