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:
* 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!
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.
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. ;)
Write down the soundtrack of your year so far. Play it for someone who loves you.
Good timing! Coco and I were just talking last night about how she was cleaning out her itunes and discovering awesome old music. And I have nothing BUT old music to share! So yay. Here are some tunes that kept me and Coco company as we drove all over California to shoot weddings this year…
Lady Gaga — TELEPHONE: Coco and I could NOT take on a wedding without listening to this song and rocking out in the car beforehand.
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. Continue reading →
Here’s some video from when I first arrived at the Intercontinental hotel and spa. Or as I like to think of it… Fiji redemption. It was the day everything changed for the better and I started to have a good time…
Internet has been hard to come by here, so I’ll be doing bigger write-ups later.
This video is definitely making it’s rounds ’round the interwebs like mad, but I have a super sweet spot for octopi and a history of featuring cool videos of “awesome sea creatures that aren’t sharks” especially a cool octopus so I thought I’d share this on the Funk as well…
“Octopuses have been discovered tip-toeing with coconut-shell halves suctioned to their undersides, then reassembling the halves and disappearing inside for protection or deception, a new study says.”

Do you ever have those unusually awesome days and think, “today should’ve been my birthday.” I have those every now and then. Yesterday was one of them…
Aaron and I went to the Aquarium of the Pacific on Monday for a late night screening of a Shark Week program about the Greenland Shark. It was such a good time and something we rarely do, public gatherings and the like. At one point some kid nearby did something annoying and i jokingly complained and Aaron said, ‘hey, you’re the one that wanted to go out in public.” :) So since it was such a rare occasion, I thought I’d take a video to try and capture the moment in time… Continue reading →
