A Nerd Hope: Megan’s nerdy 30 birthday video

I can’t believe I forgot to post this a while ago!

So, I got the absolute bestest birthday present of my lifetime from that wonderful guy I married. He contacted a bunch of my closest friends, family, and co-workers and asked them to participate in a special Nerdy 30 birthday video:

Highlights:
* The Star Wars scrolling intro.
* Special art work by Bill Nye the Science Guy.
* Oliver’s video that made me cry.
* Daren sending in his video from an Airborne Toxic Event tour.
* Stephanie and her friend drinking at the airport and singing me happy birthday.
* Erik being… Erik.
* Ariel and Tavi’s catchy tune (also Ariel’s boobz!).
* Aaron’s laptop theme.
* All the scenes from Olvera Street where Aaron spent a day collecting awesome trinkets for my other special birthday present.

Thank you thank you THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this movie. I’ve watched it a countless number of times now and I’m always BLOWN AWAY by the amazing people that I am lucky enough to be friends with. Wow. I’m one freaking lucky 30-year-old. I LOVE YOU ALL!

Is MTV lying to my face-space?

Does MTV have a partnership with MySpace? I keep noticing that they’re young reality stars reference MySpace and it seems so wrong. I mean, what kid uses MySpace anymore? Hell, what anyone uses MySpace anymore? So when I saw this scene that just played out on 16 and Pregnant and I had an A HA moment. If you notice, the girl cleary starts to say “Facebook” and then corrects it to MySpace.

Watch:

Her quick correction, plus the eye movement (up and to the left) made it clear to me that it was an obvious lie.

I’m assuming that MySpace struck up a deal with MTV so that these kids will say that they’re using their social networking site. A quick Google search didn’t give me much to go on. Does anyone know if that’s the case? I don’t know why I even care, but I was pretty tickled to catch that goof up. Just call me Megan Lightman. ;)

The playlist to my 2010

I were just talking last night about cleaning out my iTunes, and discovering awesome old music. I have nothing BUT old music to share! So yay. Here are some tunes that kept me company as I drove all over California to shoot weddings this year…

Lady Gaga — TELEPHONE: I could NOT take on a wedding without listening to this song and rocking out in the car beforehand.

Fiji — Days 4 and 5: Mana Island


I’m now on a small island called Mana island. I’m staying in the honeymoon suite which is freaking amazing, but it’s also pretty sad at the same time — I miss Aaron a lot. He’s LOVE this room because it has it’s own private beach. Fortunately the sun came out for a minute yesterday and I got to go into the ocean for the first (and probably only) time since I’ve been in Fiji.
