Random Thursday: Llama Llama Llama!

Llama Font. You know you want it.

Click to go to the generator and write secret llama messages—though once you get the hang of it, it’s easy to read.

The T and the Y are particularly adorable, I think. And the I. Okay, yeah, all of it.

Go forth and Llamafy!

(thanks to Janet Reid for this new toy, even though I didn’t decode her message fast enough)

oooOOOooo

Janie has discovered Weird Al Yankovic. The world may never be the same–after ten straight repeats of “The Weird Al Show Theme Song,” in the car this morning, I’m pretty sure I won’t be.*

She has it memorized and goes around singing, “But that’s really not important to the story!” at odd intervals. I’m beginning to miss, “Whatever.”

It’s amazing to her that a professional musician messes up songs on purpose.  Music is supposed to be sacrosanct, like books.   “I mean, I know you do it, Mommy, but he’s good.”

Thanks, kid.

My husband’s reaction? “Excellent!” He’s so proud to have helped produced the next generation of Dr. Demento** fans.

‘Course, he doesn’t drive her to school and back.

oooOOOooo

Quotes from the Notes

People who talk by the yard and think by the inch should be removed by the foot.

oooOOOooo

Sheer (shear?) unadulterated cuteness:

To get this kind of effect, I’d need a handful of styling product, a round brush, and a windtunnel—and some Rogaine.

oooOOOooo


One off the bucket list:

I finally found a copy of Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen’s version of the Mission Impossible theme song from the first movie. I’ve been looking for this for years, but didn’t want to illegally download it.

In the end, I had to buy a CD with a Bjork song on it.  Bjork.   But it was so worth it.

Yes, Janie comes by her musical obsessions honestly. Why do you ask?

oooOOOooo

And to end this odd, little llama-fest, Wally Llama, reluctant guru, and three insistent pilgrims:

The moral of this clip?  Use your smartybrains: don’t meditate without a net.

*Yes, I was closest to the stereo control and yes, I’m the parent.  But it was either listening to ten reps of this song or twenty minutes of begging, whining, pouting, and aspersions cast upon the quality and quantity of my maternal love.  I’ll take the earworm, thanks.

**Does anyone else miss this guy? Does anyone else remember this guy? I used to stay up past my bedtime and listen to him under my pillow with my huge airport runway style radio headphones.

  1. Love me that llama font, ‘tho the letter ‘y’ is a little risque.

    Love Weird Al. Bjork? Not so much.

    Which came first Wally Llama or Wally Lamb?

    And those those llama twins? So cute. Although the one on the right is definitely the black sheep of the family. I can see it in his eyes.

    • I think of the Y as Llama-yoga . . .

      The problem with Janie liking Weird Al is that there aren’t many song on my Running with Scissors CD that she’s heard straight, so the cleverness doesn’t hit her the same way. Which means I need to get more Weird Al. Darn. 🙂

      I’m thinking Wally Lamb, by a couple of decades.

      The one on the right has lips. Not that I’m into llama lips or anything, though there’s nothing wrong with . . . no, no, there is.

  2. I always love your Random Thursdays, and the llama kick is adorable, but for the Animaniacs clip? I’ll love you forever.

    “Dot is cute and Yakko yaks!”
