Thankful Thursday…Memory Loss Edition

Yesterday, while driving to Irish dance, my mind was zipping through my list of 45 million things to do when all of a sudden, I started thinking about how nice it would be to have a butler ….which then made me think of this guy…(weird, I realize, but my mind is filled with lots of weirdness these days)

Yes, that would be Mr. French….the world’s first tv “manny”. Back in the day he was called a butler, but seriously, he was all “manny.” (Which would you prefer…a manny or a nanny?)

I thought it would be so lovely to be greeted upon arriving home by my butler…”May I assist you with the 25 gazillion items that need to be brought in from the car, Madam?”….”Here are your keys, Madam”…(that alone, would be worth the six figure salary he asked for when I hired him…)….”How about a glass of tea, Madam?” Then he would whip up a fabulous meal while I relaxed with my tea. Sigh…..

Then, being the mind wanderer that I am, I tried to remember the theme song to “Family Affair”. I couldn’t remember it! It drove me nuts for the rest of the day! Friends would talk with me and all the while, my mind is trying to grab at any little memory of that dumb song! I would nod politely and say “uh-huh”, “why, of course”and so on while my friends chatted happily about their summer plans, but inside my mind I was having a complete nervous breakdown because I could not remember that dumb song! It was almost as traumatizing as the time I couldn’t remember that dumb arcade game, Tempest…That worked on me for weeks…I forgot about Google back then…Stupid menopausal brain fade!

So, I did what any old person like me would do when having memory issues…I googled Mr. French (not in a creepy way…tsk tsk…minds out of the gutter, please..) Still nothing….Then I remembered YouTube…and VOILA! There it was! I felt an enormous weight being lifted from my shoulders! (Here’s a link in case you don’t remember it either….) So on this Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for YouTube. YouTube, I love ya….

I am also thankful for Heather aka Mrs. Southern Bride (who is the cutest thing around!) for sharing the Honest Scrap Award with me! I love reading her blog! Pop over and say hello! You’ll adore her too! Thank you, Heather, for sharing this with me!

Since I’ve shared many scraps with you before, I will drop this Honest Scrap bombshell on you today….

I love, love, love the song “Dragula” by Rob Zombie. I drive my kids bananas singing that song…Did that freak you out?…It certainly freaks out my kids!

Also, I have a HUGE crush on this guy…

Swoon….I love Jack…

Have a Happy Thursday!

xoxo

  1. You most certainly crack me up! But I'm the same way. I cannot wait to sometimes bust out a google search for something that's been occupying my mind all day.

  2. Okay, I can't You Tube anything while I'm here at work, so this going to drive me insane until I can go home and listen to the theme song from Family Affair.

    Unless, of course, you'd be willing to call and sing it for me. Then I could possibly get on with my day.

  4. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I DON'T REMEMBER EVER SEEING THIS SHOW! NOT THAT I'M YOUNG OR ANYTHING, JUST BUSY WATCHING I LOVE LUCY AND I DREAM OF JEANNIE, I GUESS! THERE ARE DAYS I'D GIVE MY RIGHT ARM TO HAVE A MANNY, BUT COME ON, HE'D HAVE TO LOOK A LITTLE BIT MORE LIKE VIN DIESEL! OR MAYBE EXACTLY LIKE VIN DIESEL. OKAY, HE'D HAVE TO BE VIN DIESEL!

  7. So glad you got that song figured out. I do that all the time! If you tube didn't exist we'd all be bonkers trying to recall things all the time.
