Whose Blog is it Anyway

Does anybody watch these home movies that I put up? I find that my comments go way down when I post a lot of movies as opposed to goofy stories that can be read silently. I think that's because a lot of you read blogs from work. Shame on you! Think of all the stolen productivity.

I've also discovered that the word 'blog' can be used as filler in much the same way the word 'smurf' was used when my sister was a kid watching that horrible, horrible, smurf cartoon.

"I just smurf you!"

"That's a mighty fine smurf you're wearing."

"Get your smurfin' smurf off my lawn, you smurf-head!"

Well, let's see if any of you were paying attention. Here's my bloggiest blog, which I blogged this Blogend with my blogily. I call it, "Whose blog is it blogiway?"

Nice video...I miss mini-golf...where were you?

Anyway, just a note...if you read blogs in Bloglines, the videos don't show up...not even as a link.

Well, I think your movies are entertaining. I am a bit confused about the text of this blog entry, but I'm often confused to some degree.

For thy herasy i curse thee that though shouldst be made to plaster the rooms of thy rugrat's sleepings with smurfs!

(actualy i can't remember the cartood for the life of me, but i did grow up with them plastered on my walls, mua hahahahahahaha!)

Looklooklook!! I'm commenting!! Let it never be said that I did not comment on those blogs of people who BLOGROLL ME!!!

Essie said...

Adorable video! Loved the victory dance ;)

Rafi G said...

great video. looks like playing without keeping score is more fun. But we are so competitive. How do you get away with that?
Did she win that you called it a victory dance? it was almost as good as the Ickey Shuffle (or even better the superbowl shuffle)

Anne said...

You call that mini-golf? With no head injuries?

Rachel said...

Dear Doctor,

As usual, I read your blog and loved it. I do, however, take offense to your accusation of "lost productivity." I assume your patients were in the room as you blogged? :)

PT is hilarious, keep it coming!

Kiwi the Geek said...

Yes, I read you from work, and I have no productivity. That's why the house is such a mess! Must...go...clean...

I read every entry, and I watch every video. I love your family!

Ezzie said...

Ha! I don't work (yet), so I lose no productivity! (Don't tell Serach I said that, she may disagree... :) )

My family never was nice and played like that. Our grandmother used to beat us like 300-40 in Scrabble! We kept score in everything from the time we were little kids... we're uber-competitive. :) Hmmmm... I just realized. Maybe that's why I'm becoming an accountant. Sad.

Anyways, back to NOT talking about me... cute clips, great soundtrack. But who gets the bragging rights if nobody wins?! The PT!?

Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

Blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Oh wait, was that supposed to be blog blog blog blog blog?

The PT's victory dance was smurftastic, btw.

Baleboosteh said...

Very cute victory dance!

I have actually been avoiding videos and you tube as much as I can - we burnt up 5GB (watching multimedia) last month on our satelite internet account :(

RR said...

Your little Tigress Woods is very cute :-)

Shira Salamone said...

Not being terribly competitive, I'm just glad everyone enjoyed themselves.

That was a cute dance. The dancer's cute, too. :)

Speaking of dances, I have to figure out how to get my dance videos onto You Tube, eventually.

PsychoToddler said...

Safranit: Waukesha, somewhere off I-94. I never got into bloglines, myself. I think I would feel too pressured to read.

tnspr: Even I don't know what the heck I'm talking about. Just go with it.

HNC: Never! We're going with Franklin. Speaking of Franklin, what's up with the naming system? I mean, how come he's the only animal with a proper name? The others are all named by species, y'know, like Bear or Rabbit or Snail. And what's up with the name "Franklin" anyway? What does that have to do with being a turtle? And are all Turtles named "Mr. and Mrs. Turtle"? Are they all related. Too many questions. I much prefer the Little Bear system. There's equality there. Except...was Mother Bear named Mother Bear even before she had cubs?

Tzipster: Yipee!!

essie: Thank you. She did that without music!

Rafi G, Ezzie, et al: Say it with me now: THE PT ALWAYS WINS. It's much safer for everyone that way.

WMI: You wouldn't be saying that if you had witnessed all the club swinging that was going on.

Rachel: I just want to state for the record that I have never, EVER, kept a patient waiting while I fiddle around on the internet. I only blog during my downtime. Fortunately for me, this year I've had much less downtime than previously, which means that I haven't been able to sit down and write the kinds of posts that I REALLY want to write.

So I direct you to my archives where you can read the much higher quality material that I used to write when I had nothing better to do.

Kiwi: Thanks! I love them too!

Ezzie: There's little point in competitiveness when the youngest kid always wins anyway. If she loses, she makes everyone else miserable for hours. Little kids are like terrorists. Unfortunately, we've been in appeasment mode for the last 17 years.

Serach must be VERY understanding given the amount of blogging you do. Maybe you can figure out a way to make some money off of it.

baleboosteh: That sucks. I forget how good we have it here in the US with unlimited access.

rr: Thanks. Actually, she did better than the others. Something to do with putting the ball 8 inches from the hole and then dragging it in.

Shira: It's quite simple. Just sign up for a free account and upload the video.

Eeees said...

Well, I was going to comment on how Tiger Woods now has competition, but RR kinda beat me to it!
I was just waiting for the PT to take the ball and plop it directly into the hole :)
You guys are great! Looking forward to your next entry..

Rachel said...

Oh, Doc, I know that you wouldn't keep your patients waiting!

Ezzie said...

See, my family doesn't allow such terrorism. We're true cold-blooded conservatives. My Dad listens to Rush every day... so I had to earn my wins. ;)

Serach IS very understanding... and I have figured out ways to make some money off of it [which has made her more understanding!]. More importantly, I've figured out how to use it for some good... but that's a separate set of stories.

Nati said...

Wow, this film is almost identical (although with 66% less sodium . . I mean kids . . )to the one we took when we went to Orlando last November. Really, right down to the Blair Witch aspect of filming the golfer and then quickly trying to shoot the path of the ball, and then the location of the ball for the next shot. Memories . . . Mini golf places look so much alike it's as though they're their own country, like the way being in a country's embassy is techically being on its soil. I digress. . . great video, and your kids look like really good sports in their dealings with the PT. Thanks for sharing!

Shifra said...

That was great - the music kept things rolling along too!

I like your home videos - I think the one of the PT singing "what a wonderful world" is about the best video I've ever seen - no kidding.

Stacey said...

I can't take how CUTE the PT is!!

Shira Salamone said...

Shifra, I think that was "Iguana" singing "What a Wonderful World." No doubt about it, Dr. PT and Mrs. Balabusta have more than one cute kid.

Kiwi the Geek said...

There's little point in competitiveness when the youngest kid always wins anyway. If she loses, she makes everyone else miserable for hours.

Wow! I won't even play a game with Sweetie if she's not a good sport. I swear I blogged about this once, but I can't find it:

My friend Walrus Bob was playing Memory with Sweetie, and he got a pair. Sweetie congratulated him, "Yay, good job!" He was confused. "No, you're not supposed to get excited when I get a pair..." I overheard and came in to scold him: "Don't tell her that! Do you know how hard it was to teach her to be a good sport? The game is fun no matter who wins, huh Sweetie?"

Catholic Priest said...

As a catholic priest who believes that the Jews are God's chosen people, it pained me greatly when I was informed about the sexual abuse scandal brewing in the midst of such a great nation.

However, upon further investigation, my pain led to anger, as it became clear that God's chosen people were being led astray, and their belief system was being hijacked, by fake leaders and false prophets.

As part of the clergy, I have had several meetings with high ranking Jewish leaders and have come away greatly pleased and encouraged by the message being delivered and the high morals displayed.

However, at a recent inter-faith meeting among the leaders of several denominations, it became painfully obvious that the same Jewish leaders became different people when faced with a harsh reality. Instead of addressing the great issues of the day, they chose to display dubious traits of moral character and, to be blunt, a shocking lack of compassion for victims, and would refuse to speak about the issue of child sexual abuse with any moral clarity or honesty.

It was as if the to speak of sexual abuse would be to bow down to Jesus himself.

Now, we of the catholic faith have a tradition of ‘love thy neighbor’ (i.e. compassion) as being the first and foremost quality that we learned from Jesus and endeavor to incorporate such ideals into our daily lives.

I do not understand how the leaders of the Jewish People do not learn from their previous great prophets and leaders such a Abraham and Moses, renown for their great mercy, kindness, compassion, truth and honesty.

What has happened to the people of the Bible- God’s sole chosen nation?


PsychoToddler said...

eees: Thanks! I think if you look closely, you'll see someone doing just that, I don't want to say who...

Rachel: Not that I'm not guilty of blogging from work. Just that I'm self employed so I'm stealing time from myself.

ezzie: What can I say, I am weak. I can't go head to head with The PT and come out with my sanity intact. However, although I kid about this, I think I may be one of the few people in my family to get her to do whatever I say. The trick is to make her think it's what SHE wanted to do all along.

As far as beating my kids--I was never like that I used to play race car games with them and I'd actually drive backwards so that they could beat me. But nowadays, they can wipe the floor with me on most games. I have to ask Iguana to do the hard parts in Tomb Raider.

Nati: Hmm...Blair Witch Golf? I think you may be on to something.

Shifra: Shira is correct: it is Iguana in this video. I'm glad you like them. The kids are working on something extra special.

Stacey: Why do you think I devoted a WEB SITE to her?

Shira: Don't forget to go to Ourkidsspeak for more cuteness.

Kiwi: Like I said, she's a terrorist. YOu should see what happened when she was playing memory ("membry") this past Shabbos. Yes, it is quite the task to teach good sportsmanship.

Catholic Priest: uh...what?? Thanks for the spam!

PsychoToddler said...

As I re-read my comment...when I said "beating my kids", I meant when playing a game.

Jack's Shack said...

when I said "beating my kids"

And I thought that we were going to have to call on Fudge for the real story. ;)

Ralphie said...

I truly HATE mini-golf. Mainly because I'm terrible at it.

Please repost your video at 2x speed with a Benny Hill soundtrack.

CatholicPriest - way to stay on-topic. And by the way, the Church has a GREAT record about facing up to sexual abuse in its midst, so keep on casting that first stone!

PsychoToddler said...

2x speed with a Benny Hill soundtrack

Believe it or not, I was seriously considering this for a while, but I went with the "Whose Line is it Anyway" theme instead.

Chana said...

It's not a party until something gets spilled, and it's just not mini-golf until I have to shout "FORE!"...

That and ping-pong have the same effect as a couple glasses of wine on me. I'm just soooooo bad... and for some reason I find it very funny how bad I am...

I think this is the first video of yours I've seen. So that ups your percentages, right? LOL

PsychoToddler said...

Maybe I should make a post that gathers up all the videos and or all the songs that I've posted on this blog.

Whatever you say, doctor :)
