In Which I Am White And Nerdy

First order of business today is to announce the winner of the Caption Contest. There were a lot of funny entries, including some with awesome Star Wars references, so it was difficult to pick just one. However, when reviewing them today, it was clear to me which one I had to pick.

Please join me in congratulating Heather! Her entry, "I've got a business doing websites. When my friends need some code, who do they call? I do HTML for 'em all." is part of the lyrics for a Weird Al Yankovic song titled "White and Nerdy", which is a parody of Chamillionare's rap song "Ridin' Dirty". Check out Weird Al's music video of the song by clicking here. I'm a huge Weird Al fan, but never realized how much those lyrics fit my life.

So, Heather... Shoot me an e-mail with what picture you'd like, and be sure to include your address so I can mail it out to you early next week. Congratulations!


Not much else is happening this weekend. I'm going to work on putting up some decorations around the house. Instead of a tree this year (because of our too-playful kitten), we'll be making and hanging a rustic rope swag of sorts, wrapped with white lights, from the beams on the ceiling. We'll hang our ornaments on that, where they will be up and out of the kitten's reach. Not sure how it will turn out, but I'll take some pictures of it if it looks nice.

Other than that, I'll be working on what I'm making The Boss for Christmas. I've got a lot of work to do on it still, so hopefully I can put some time into it this weekend.

See you all on Monday!

Congrats to Heather!

The idea of hanging your lights and ornaments on the rope thing sounds great. My puppy has already eaten two of my snowmen ornaments.

That is brilliant Heather! I loved the video. Very good and well deserved.

Bet you don't wear all your pens in your pocket or have your name on your under-crackers - do you?

Happy hanging!

MadWoman said...

Excellent! Good job Heather! I love Weird to see him live last month, it was great.

Aunt Becky said...

That song cracks my ass up. Nice work, Heather.

Have fun hanging balls this weekend!

*snicker, snicker*


Cape Cod Gal said...

WOO HOO Heather! She's my girl!

FYI - nothing is every out of the kitty's reach.

Have a great weekend!

Heather said...


I am so excited. Let me think about the pictures though. I might need some help, there were 4 in specific I really liked, House, Rustic Bridge, Clock Tower and Two Trees Divide. I think the last one is my most favoritest though. What do you all think?

Sus said...

Yeah Heather!

One year for Christmas, Jeremy and I wrapped a hat stand in silver tinsel and duct taped Buzz Lightyear to the top. It was sweet.

Lola said...

Yay, Heather! Congrats to you!

Oh, give the kitten her tree. It's the most hysterical thing ever to have a kitten and a Christmas tree in the same room. As long as you tie it to something and don't use any tinsel that can ball up in the kitty's belly, it's all in the name of FUN!

Moonspun said...

Congratulations, Heather!
That's a really creative idea instead of a Christmas Tree. Good thinking!

Tony said...

That's a good idea for hanging the ornaments. We'll have little kids around this year so that may be something to think about.

Employee No 3699: I hope they tasted good, for the dog's sake.

Splodge: I used to carry pens in my pocket, but never had my name on my underwear.

MadWoman: I've seen Weird Al three times, and each time was awesome!

Aunt Becky: I didn't get around to hanging anything this weekend, but I did play with some balls. Mine.

Cape Cod Gal: The decorations will be up about 10 feet off the ground. I don't think he can jump that high.

Heather: Congrats!

Sus: That does sound pretty sweet.

Lola: I would not like coming home, finding that the tree was knocked over, with all the decorations spread over the house. It's enough work putting it up once.

Moonspun: I'll take sole credit for it. It was a late-night inspiration.

Tony: Little kids are almost as bad as kittens.

I HAD to comment on this because I have White and Nerdy on my cell as my text tone.

It goes off so much my three year old sings it. Quite well I might add.


Good job Heather!!!

Even though it's been awhile
