Jan at Crazy Lady on Road 80 posted this YouTube video the other day. I love it so much that I just had to post it here so I could stop stop stalking Jan's blog just to watch it.
This video is the perfect definition of something that makes me laugh alone in the dark. If I have even a fleeting thought about it I start to giggle. Especially at night when I'm trying to fall asleep and my mind starts wandering...
Oddly enough, I could swear I saw this video for the first time over twenty years ago. A friend of mine had just visited Japan and brought a video tape of (this show?) to our Japanese class in Grade 10. It is so familiar that I'm almost certain this is what we watched. I'll have to do my research, but I wonder if the show this clip came from has been around that long.
[Edit - check this out. The show was released in 1985. I was in Grade 10 in 1988, so it's possible this is what I saw. Funny.]
While I'm rambling on, I may as well share a little something else about this video:
Balazs and I went to a lovely little restaurant on Friday night to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. Of course, Csilla thought it would be a perfect night to be absolutely uncooperative about going to bed, so we were very late getting out the door. By the time we arrived at the restaurant it was after 9pm and the place was almost empty. As it turned out, Csilla's tantrums were a blessing because Balazs and I had an entire room in the back to ourselves, right in front of a fireplace. The food was amazing and I was tipsy after one drink.
We seriously need to get out more.
Anyway, this video fits into the anniversary dinner story because at some point during the meal I tried to describe it to Balazs. I couldn't even get more than a few words out at a time because I was laughing so hard that tears were running down my face. He thought I was crazy and I'm still not even sure he knows what the video is about.
Without further ado, here's something that makes my husband think I'm crazy and makes me laugh alone in the dark:
