Distractions: The Christmas Edition

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.

How should one react to a disappointing Christmas gift?  Miranda Hart (BBC’s Call the Midwife) and David Walliams (Little Britain) give a bit of advice.  There are more of these on YouTube – go over there and check them out for a few more laughs.

This is from my very favorite Christmas album: John Denver and The Muppets A Christmas Together. It’s not the best quality….but it’s from the 70s so what are you gonna do.

Jimmy Fallon, Mariah Carrey and The Roots, making some holiday magic. This song makes me so very happy – I defy you not to like it!!!

A happy and healthy holiday season to you all!!! May you have tons of presents, food and friends/family all around.

Thanksgiving meets WKRP, Snoop and Fallon

This is one of my favorite pieces of television EVER. I mean ever. Ever ever. Hopefully you’ve seen the whole episode (if you haven’t it’s likely on YouTuble, Hulu or somewhere on the internet) because it’s amazing….but here at least is a few minutes of Les Nessman at his finest. (sorry for the low quality but it’s the best version I could find).

*******************************

It’s Martha Stewart. It’s Snoop Dogg. They’re friends and it’s delightful….and they’re making mashed potatoes, which I will never turn down.

For any of you who watch Late Night With Jimmy Fallon you know that once a week he issues a hashtag challenge for his Twitter followers. Here’s his latest, #ThanksgivingFail.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone! And if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, then have the best Thursday of your life.
