Caffeinated Randomness - Sesame Street Sillies


As you may have noticed I haven't been around lately. I'm not going to blame it on the summer or the move or even the weather. I've just been feeling a bit "blough". It may be because my thyroid is out of wack again (I just had my blood tested so I'll know more soon). But I have been in a bit of an unenergectic kind of mood lately. As I said last week I've been watching way to much tv. So this week I got some books and now I have been reading more. I've also been getting up and actually doing my morning devotions, exercise and bible study which has been lacking lately. (Hello, my Hellomornings mym10 friends if you're visiting.)

I decided that I needed a pick me up this week for Caffeinated Randomness. Something just ridiculiously silly and something that appeals to my sick sense of humour. I think we all need Sesame Street. There is something perverse about some of the Sesame Street skits and songs. I love the double entendre with them.  Jim Henson knew something about entertainment.  One of my favourite shows growing up was the Muppet Show and I could watch reruns of it all the time.  I sometimes sit and watch Sesame Street with the kids and see what's up.  It is neat to see that a show I enjoyed and remember watching is one that my kids enjoy watching; even the 8 year old, although she would argue with you about it.

In saying all this, this week I would love if everyone would share their favourite Sesame Street skit or song.  Did you know that Sesame Street has their own You Tube Channel?  I watch it with the kids often.  That's where I found this old video.  I love this song.  It was one I found on a Sesame Street cassette when I was babysitting my cousin 20 years ago.  Bert sang it on the cassette, but it was originally a Sesame Street skit from when the show was first on.  I'm so glad that you can get these old skits on the internet.  It keeps us young and brings back those memories of simpler times when things didn't weigh heavily so much on us and you could feel better by just singing a song.   So today, I want us to go back to those times and embrace the little kids we were and still are.

Come link up and share you're favourite Sesame Street memory today.

PS - I will be posting more soon. I have a lot of great post ideas. I just need to get them down on paper and then type them in. Yes, I just said that. :)

Haha! Poor Maurice!

I always liked the cartoon short where the girl had to go to the store and by a loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter. I still quote it when I send Kevin to the store.

Oh, I missed you, Michelle! So glad you are back with some silly stuff!

I guess Grover made an impression on my because the ones that I really remember involve him. Do you remember the "near...far...near...far" one? Oh, and the "Exer-exer-cise! Exercise! It's fun to exercise, all day we will exercise!"

Okay, that's enough.
