Random Friday: short and stolen

[By Merry]

Well, the crab's doing that "packing" stuff. (I am profoundly grateful that we are in fact two separate people, otherwise I'd be stuck packing too!) So I'm trying to put together a short-and-dirty (like me except for the hygiene part) Random Friday.

This infomercial was stolen leveraged from Morgan's blog. She managed to lose close to 100 pounds following this diet, and although Cranky Fitness is (let's say it all together) "NOT a weight loss blog," the information in this video clip is too funny to miss:

Since blogland can always use more haiku, and in honor of Crabby's poor cat, I thought we needed to raise cultural awareness levels: Cat Haiku.

And lastly, a quick travel joke to cheer Crabby on her way:

I was driving down a lonely country road one cold winter day when it began to sleet pretty heavily. My windows were getting icy and my wiper blades were badly worn and quickly fell apart under the strain.

Unable to drive any further because of the ice building up on my front window I suddenly had a great idea. I stopped and began to overturn large rocks until I located two very lethargic hibernating rattle snakes. I grabbed them up, straightened them out flat and installed them on my blades and they worked just fine.

What! You've never heard of . . . wind chilled vipers?

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Love the cat haiku and Morgan's informercial.

    And wind chilled vipers??? Arggghh. Well done.

  2. Have a wonderful trip! Watch out for people who drive like me and you'll be fine :)

  3. have a great trip crabby!!


  4. Wind chill vipers. Oh, my. Loved the Cat Haiku.

  5. Oh, merry. Wind chilled vipers is...... just is. :)

  6. Ugh. Looks like you got some spam there, Crabby. I've seen it before and checked it out. Odd thing, there's no place to leave comments on the so-called "blog."


    Very funny post! I loved the video and the cat haiku is hilarious. I couldn't help missing my old cat, Conan.

  7. Thanks for the good travel vibes, everyone!

    And thanks Michael for the spam watch--just zapped it.

  8. No problem, Crabby. You're very welcome!

  9. Safe journey Crabby!

    Merry loved the Cat Haiku, shouldn't that be vind chilled vipers?

  10. funny clip Merry :) I saw it before (should have blogged it before you guys, but you're so hot!).. hey, want a free relaxation MP3 track? :)

  11. weightlossguru--

    Cool, I love free stuff! And I see it has binaural beats. I never have figured out of the science behind that is solid or not, but I like the entrainment idea and always feel like I'm getting an extra bonus if a relaxation tape has that. Looking forward to checking it out.

  12. Have a safe trip. I drove cross country in my minivan with a uhaul attached. It's an experience...............:)

    Super 8 Motels are great. Good rates, clean, friendly, Interstate access and all of them have free wifi.
