f|break: monday morn

on twitter
comedy ... @jasonsegel (on imdb) rocked an infauxmercial on SNL this weekend! and he can rock my bed (PG-13-ish) as evidenced by the kemper-pedic infauxmercial - 
"Are you and your partner on different sleep schedules? With a Kemper Pedic Me Time mattress, your sound asleep partner won't feel you just inches away." 
- which then, because of his reference to exercising in bed - reminded me of yet another funfauxmercial!

enjoy a morning fiber break with jason segel and vanessa bayer (on imdb) (over here)
for ~ 1:43 min with the patented me time mattress
... without any of that weird squeaking
i know! what was that?

BONUS ... added fiber for getting physically fit (over here)
for ~ 2:36 minutes with jimmy kimmel (on web, youtube, twitter) and the tug toner


(oopsie! peed in m'pants)

f|break: sunday morn

dr. who... puffy heart! i enjoyed the last doctor (as i am enjoying the current doctor and my future sonic screwdriver over here). for this fiber break, as stated with the video ...
"To The Proclaimers "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)", here's the cast and crew special for the end of David Tennant's tenure as the Doctor. It was watched at the wrap party with all the cast and crew."
... and i likes me a little dr. who (on bbc) and david tennant (on imdb). what a fabulous, nifty wrap-up party clip, i'd imagine.


enjoy a morning fiber break with the david tenant era (over here)
for a worthwhile ~ 3:42 minutes



(puffy heart, yum!)

BONUS ... and another clip from the wrap-up
with the “The Ballad of Russell and Julie” (over here)
 for another worthwhile ~ 6:32 minutes 
with catherine tate (on imdb), david tennant, and john barrowman (on imdb)
to a let's do it riff (read about over here).


let's do it ... you did it tonight!

f|break: saturday morn

movie time? ... @thecomedycouple (on web, youtube, twitter, facebook) are my new friends. they have solved my on-going movie-going dilemma (and have a dog, for which i live vicariously through dog-owners, for now)!  

hello new friends, andy and rhoda (and atticus - woof)! ... actually, i haven't met them, so i'm not even sure if it's polite or acceptable to call them by their first names or take atticus for a walk or a tummy rub. in fact, they live in so cal and have no idea who i
on youtube
am.

here's the skinny ... the comedy couple share bedtime movie reviews with their dog atticus, who serves up the movie rating. (i'm virtually petting atticus now.) key words?
    movie reviews
I AM IN! i'm thinking that among my gadgetman, rennie, and the comedy couple movie-opiners, i'll have my movie-social-calendar handy.


enjoy your morning fiber break with the comedy couple (over here)
for ~ 3:44 min to decide whether you'll see this movie -
the (re)new(cycled) the twighlight saga: 
breaking dawn (on imdb) part f*#kin' 1



 (i've decided whether i'll see this movie, 
although i s'pose it was kind of pre-determined 
with the words twilight saga.*)

thank you, 
the comedy couple!
* shhh ... i'll probably watch it
when it's on cable for the kitsch.

five hard inches ...

boot heels, that is ... from @fluevog, last week my fluevog faith | certitude red clog boots took their virgin voyage into san francisco and cubeopolis. with a 1-inch platform and a 5-inch heel, i had a nifty new view in the cubeopolis maze; in other words, i could see over the cube partitions a l'il more!

"thank you" ... it's what i said quite often for those who complimented my boots. first compliment? male stranger in elevator as i started my day in cubeopolis - 
"wow, those boots are great! i hope they are as comfortable as they are totally cool!"
(great way to start the day!) yes, indeed, they were. admittedly, at least for me (who is not used to wearing heels), i'm not sure if i'd be able to do that walk-all-over-the-city all day and night, but i know i can do so during the work day around the office and a jaunt out for lunch
critter love 

meanwhile, my little cubemates (aka toys in my cube) bore witness to my virgin voyage.

 
and thanks for the elbow of shiny penny andy that was available in case i could not comfortably navigate the little slope/hill jaunt out for lunch a couple of blocks away.

 certitude-licious!
(and visit my addiction)
[p.s. no animals were hurt
during this photog shoot.
girl squirrel is fine!]

f|break: tuesday morn

last week monday night (or more like early tuesday morn), jennifer tilly (on imdb) was one of the guests on craig ferguson's show. and most of the interview was more jennifer than craig.

during the entire interview)

but i had to sneak in 

side bar ... of course, while waiting to hear "banshee" yelled, posting a pic or two on facebook (right?) is kind of a must. loved this comment - 
"careful someone might drop some coins in the cup
thinking you are begging to support your shoe habit!"
(BRAVO, pipes man!!!)

back to food stuff ... i likes make love covet me my grits (as shared in last year's post, for which there are other restaurants i'll need to add to the grits offering in the bay area). this morning was no different, and piragua also had her share of grits.

what the ... bieber in my mouth?!

(bieber in my mouth)
cubeopolis frivolity ... for my 48th birthday, a few cubesters bestowed upon me oral care - via a toothbrush, one of the various justin bieber oral care products (over here) for which i had NO idea that such products existed.

choices in the morning ... i now have THIS singing toothbrush in red. if i choose to forgo my regular oralb toothbrush, in the morning, i can brush to baby (over here), and in the evening, i can brush to u smile (over here), or i can do without bieber in my mouth.

here's a clip of part of my initial reaction.
video

thanks pho queen and shiny penny andy!
