Dancing dubbed, Muppet Interviews and Gervais w/Elmo

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.

This clip is from Awakefest 2013, and some genius figured out that it would be fantastically better to set the dancing of these festival-goers to the theme from Benny Hill. I couldn’t agree more.

Here’s a clip from Unscripted – Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog all taking audience questions re: the release of The Muppets. It’s fairly off-the-cuff and some of it gets pretty sassy. Also, at the 4:15 mark Miss Piggy does impressions of other muppets….and it’s fantastic.

Ricky Gervais and Elmo in an off-the-rails interview…clearly most of it never made it to air.

Happy weekend everyone!

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.
