Total Eclipse of the Heart...Literally!

I have a bit of a cold.  Ugh...

It sucks that a pesky cold has the ability to slow you down!  One minute, you are moving full speed ahead, and then the next minute, you have to take a step back and remind yourself that you are still human.

Gotta take care of yourself, y'all!

Sometimes, it's important to tell myself to slow down and stop trying to take on too many things.

Oh well...

This weekend was really fun.  However, not getting much sleep is probably what contributed to me feeling so run down.

On Saturday, our fun friends from Milwaukee came to see us.  We had a wonderful time with them!

Before heading out for a night on the town, we played a game called "Mafia," which is a game where you win by either being a member of the Mafia and killing off everyone in the room before they guess it's you, or being a regular civilian and discovering who the mafia is before they 'off' you!

So much fun.  I was Mafia twice, and I successfully won both of those rounds!  WOO!

Hmmm...Kinda scares me a bit though, that I am so good at manipulating a group of people. 

What...a killer instinct!


I have to share this ridiculous video with you all! 

My friend Jeremy over at Hawking the Scene introduced me to Literal Videos.  If you go on youtube and search for "literal videos" you will find some funny clips of ridiculous music videos, except the lyrics have been changed to reflect what is happening in the video...literally!

After watching a few of these, my favorite is the "Total Eclipse of the Heart" video.  I hope you find it as awesomely amazing as I did!



  1. Gawd that is so funny...seriously snorted out loud at this one;) thanx for the mondy rock man!

  2. Hope you feel better soon! We need you to be on top of your game!

    I've never played this Mafia game, but it sounds fun. I will have to google it.

  3. Literal videos are the best! There is a fun one to Smells Like Teen Spirit too. Check it out if you haven't seen it.

  4. I will have to check out these videos when I'm home.
