brooklyn bridgeOH bugger. Can it be Monday already? Already? Monday? Really? Rats. Not sure you can tell, but we’re not ready. Not no way, not no how. Not know how we’re gonna do a post in this condition.

IN case it’s not abundantly clear, some of us continue to be in the midst of recovering from our whirlwind tour of the East coast, as in: we had a beautiful PENGUIN underfoot last week, and we wanted to make sure she had a swell time while she was here, so we whisked her up and down Interstates 95 & 91, the Jersey Turnpike, the Merritt Parkway, and, over, under and/or through a bunch of bridges and/or tunnels with names we forget, in order to properly criss cross as much of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts as possible in 6 (count ’em SIX) short days. Yes, that’s right, we said Massachusetts. Shut up*.

BUT none of that matters now. Oh no. This is Monday, everyone’s trying to get back into some semblance of normalcy, and we’re here doin’ our cheesy “musical opposites/cheap laughs” thing — as we’re wont to do when we can’t come up with any other clever way to seque out of a DJ LAMPSHA SUPER SPECTACULAR SPIN (oh how we lovelovelove that woman and/or her spins). Nonetheless, we’re tired, FRENCH and SAUNDERS as the THE CORRS are funny, Bob’s O’Malley’s yer uncle (we kind of missed out of Saint Paddy’s day, cut us some slack), and looky there, another post is done. Since Lampsha featured not one but 2 (count ’em TWO) artists from the UK, there’s nothing not timely about our sharing this one with you. In fact, we’re bloody brilliant, if we do say so ourselves, which, of course, we do.

LAME? Us? Well, yeah. What about “we’re still trying to recover from last week” did you not understand? You can find funny all over the place, just ask DIESEL. While you’re there, for godssake offer up a caption for his little contest. Honestly, he’s been whoring up the blogosphere for the past 5 days in a pathetic gallant effort to get folks to participate, so do us all a favor and pitch in. Or, if you prefer, come back here tomorrow when he’s sure to do another, in a series of his own Super Spectacular Posts — unless, of course, he forgets, in which case we are SO gonna go over there and smack him on the back of his bald head (which isn’t bald, but looks that way in the picture, and stop looking at us like that, if you’d taken 2 seconds to go over there yourself we’d be through now, and taking our nap).

*We do plan to share more about the activities of last week — with any kind of luck, rest, and/or typing ability, we might even have something for you as soon as Wednesday. If we’re not here, you can find us looking for material over at HUMOR-BLOGS.COM.

i had such high hopes for today’s post. but then i remembered my son has a dentist appointment AND a doctor’s appointment, we have no food in our house, my cat’s sick, and, um… i’m tired. which left me with A) a headache and B) no choice but to play the “cheesy video” card, once again. yoiks. maybe Diesel will offer up something better, tomorrow. (one can only hope!) πŸ˜‰ xox

Comment by One Hot Puppy

Not such a cheesy video, snup. Great Brooklyn Bridge photo, too. Good luck at the Docs today.

Comment by Al

Outstanding parody and a right fine post, especially when one considers the day of the week. Be sure and treat yourself to our favorite Starbucks beverage…it will help the day make sense.

Comment by BoBo

Well if French & Sanders is mentioned, it’s got to be good. Ay, let’s just fast forward to Tuesday, shall we?

Comment by LAMPSHA

Well, well, well, what a difference Fire Fox makes…..I am actually not standing on my head reading the comments and not only that…..it tells me when I am making spelling mistakes πŸ˜‰ Thank you,thank you,thank you πŸ™‚
All my computer problems are over for now……just need to buy a new printer/scanner/copier/etc/etc.
Now where was I…Oh!!!yes!!! I love it when fat ladies can make you laugh…did I detect a little of Bjork in that?
Can’t wait to hear about you time with the Little Penguin.

Wait…click here to get plug inn…what, what? another download…..*sigh*

Comment by Mo'a

Very nice. And who says you can’t be both pathetic and gallant? Oh. So I have to pick one? Ok, I’ll get back to you tomorrow.

Comment by Diesel

Faboo post I tell you sweet amiga mia and not at all lame! NOT… AT… ALL!!!!

I actually saw the Corrs with Loverboy, pre kids (man! No kids? What was THAT like?) at the Fillmore of all places! *sigh* I am getting teary eyed! Seriously!

If I didn’t know better (see? Bohemians DO learn! πŸ˜‰ ), I would call myself a dork but… whale penis? Dios mio!

Comment by Catty Yummy Mummy

I agree with your other admirers–you couldn’t be lame if you tried. And it sounds like you had a wonderful time with teh Penguin!

Al: i KNEW you’d recognize that bridge, even if no one else (including me) did! still can’t get over the amazing tour you gave us — what a treat! can’t wait to drag bring my hubby/sons in for a second helping of “Lower Manhattan”. that was some good “guidance” you gave, my friend! (damn fine food, too!) xox

BoBo: don’t you just know i managed to sneak in a trip to Starbucks following the dentist but prior to taking our darling son to the shrink doctor πŸ˜‰ xox

Lampsha: now that’s the BEST idea i’ve heard all day! i gotta tell ya, NBFF, i loved your weekend post so much it was tempting to leave it up one more day, in hopes no one would notice. but then i figured we didn’t need your FABULOUS posts associated with the ugliness that is… Monday. see how i work to help you maintain your impeccable reputation? that’s love, baby! xox

Mo’a: Mo’a! Mo’a! Mo’a!! and you just KNOW we’ll have many MANY goodgoodgood things to say about you! man — we had the BEST time at your house (still wondering how to work off the calories from that food! between you and Al, my diet’s been shot!) i had a feeling FireFox would be the answer to all most of your problems — so glad it’s at least an improvement on explorer! xox

Diesel: if we didn’t love you we wouldn’t mock you (to your face, that is). pathetic. gallant. what the hell do i care? just do another winning post and all will be forgiven (and by “all will be forgiven”, i mean, remember you OWE me big time for not doing that extra post last week because your wife made you “go to bed early”) xox

CYM: hah! amiga de mi corazon! henceforth, the term “dork” shall be used for the sole purpose of designating one level of nerdiness. that said, you’re still not a dork. not even close! (cool that you saw the Corrs, i’m guessing they were pretty darn good. tho’ i adore the way Dawn French plays all 3 sisters “nananana I have hair”. hee!) xox

Actonbell: you, my friend, are way too sweet! we did, indeed, have a wonderful time with teh Penguin, she’s every bit as delightful as you might imagine. a total doll, so sweet, so fun, and so gonna turn red when she reads this! (so i’ll stop talking about her, for now). NEXT time (assuming she’s not turned off by America after this trip) i want to drive out to Pennsylvania, in hopes of meeting up with our favorite Pez Gals…(of course, Gina and i talk about doing that on our own someday, so watch out… it may happen sooner than you think!) xox

Oh those tunnels. What a nightmare.
Relax. I already contributed to Diesel. I hope his posting here won’t deter him from putting up his poll.
I love Dawn French.
