Movie Motivation & Pirate Michael Bolton

To the untrained human, trying to get pregnant simply involves gettin’busy, knockin’ boots, makin’ bacon, the lust and thrust, the bump and grind, havin’ a bedroom rodeo, some hanky panky, gettin’ lucky, a roll in the hay, a good old fashioned shag…..

……but for those of us in the infertility trenches, we know getting pregnant means trying to hone your body into a perfectly balanced eco-system of hormones and chemicals you never knew you had while aligning the planets during a mystical creatures convention where a unicorn nods approvingly at you and The Cubs win The World Series.

It can be daunting.

For me, it boils down to having a constant stream of distractions, shiny objects and things to occupy my brain.  I share some here each week.


The week here started off with some tough news so I’m a little late with this week’s edition.  I spent a mess of time looking at Louis CK clips and Muppet Show excerpts (very medicinal), but in the end I went with two of my very favorite movie scenes and a ridiculous video that just makes me laugh for its brilliance and stupidity.


Meatballs was one of my favorite movies as a kid, and the classic “It Just Doesn’t Matter” speech by Bill Murray has always been a go-to for quoting. It’s one part pep talk and one part B.S. call-out about how life really works….and sometimes you really do need both at the same time.


Animal House.  I barely feel the need to say more….but Belushi reminds us that it’s not over ’til it’s over


Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg are The Lonely Island and they’re responsible for tons of videos you’ve likely seen via Saturday Night Live.  This one features Michael Bolton and I love every inch of it.


A great week to all, and to all a great week.

  1. Hee hee. Thank you for sharing these each week. I’ve passed along several of your video finds to my hubby and others. Last week I was all about Chimpanzee on a Segway! 😉
