My 2nd great aunt Amy

If my brain's not broken, it's definitely a bit dented

So I was driving home from work this afternoon, sitting in a bit of backed up traffic when I grew tired of the same old, same old on the radio. I bumped the scan button until I landed on a classical station which was nice since they were playing a symphony of some sort. Then Hoedown from the Rodeo ballet came on. Oh, you know the song:
But you probably also know in the back of your head that the song is forever associated with "BEEF, IT'S WHAT'S FOR DINNER." If you don't, here's what I'm talking about:

What's even worse for me is that I always end up having a gigglefit because I remember a silly conversation from years ago that veritasema and I had where she asked me what I was having for dinner and it was one of those nights where I wasn't inspired to cook so my answer was "Toast, it's what's for dinner."

I don't know if it's a good thing or not that my brain went off on a tangent about that and I kept chuckling (and hence kept getting weird looks from the cats) because yeah, toast. Just doesn't have the same umph, the same MANLY MAN feel, the same gravitas as gnawing on that roasted hunk of steer. I mean can you imagine, the circle around the fire and non-meat-eating cowboys with their bits of bread on a stick trying to turn it a nice shade of light brown over the campfire without it falling in and burning to a crisp?

Then cowboys and commercials naturally made me think of this and yeah, done for

I can watch that damned thing about a million times and it'll start me into a tear-filled gigglefit EVERY flippin' time.

I think I love you...



Glad I could inspire a moment of cheer with my insanity *MWAH!*

I adore Aaron Copeland and Rodeo Hoe Down is one of my favorites!

Absolutely on the cat vid. It's one of my favorites, too.

BTW, I will never look at toast the same way again.

MUAHAAHAA! Forever you'll feel for the poor dudes out on the prairie who have no electricity in which to use for their toasters. This morning I had a nice free-range, grass-fed crumpet.

And just because I'm undercaffeinated and ornery

Good for you. Keep that attitude - it's Friday!

I'm an hour and a half into the World's Most Tedious Webinar (another broad overview of the new financial system which we are sooo screweeeed since they're just glossing over everything)

Yawn, I'm just staying awake as it is. Sure glad I'm not have to deal with that today. Going in on my day off to hand out paychecks was enough.
