My favorite things!

I'm bored and in the mood to blog so I came up with the idea to do some favorite things posts. Every day this week (if I remember!) I'll blog about some of my favorite things.Maybe I'll be able to introduce you to something new, or maybe I'll just entertain myself by posting random things all week. You'll just have to stick around and see. :)

Today's topic: My favorite videos/movies/TV shows

Sometimes Josh and I like to bond over silly Youtube videos. I introduced him to Toonces the Driving Cat, which we watched about a hundred times, and many other stupid but classic gems.

One of our recent favorites is this, which we have watched fifty bazillion times and it still makes us laugh:

This is my favorite Korean drama moment, from the drama Boys Over Flowers. SPOILER ALERT! Jan-Di comes from a poor family and after her parents lose their jobs they're forced to sell snacks on the street corner to passing cars to earn some money. Jan-Di is dating a very wealthy guy and his mom is not happy about it, so she drives with him past Jan-Di selling snacks on the street to try to humiliate her and get her son to stop dating her. Instead...well, just watch. :)

This next clip is from my favorite episode of How I Met Your Mother. The episode is called Hooked. In this clip Lily is trying to practice letting a guy know he has no chance with her by practicing on a teacup pig. If I could share the entire episode I would, but you'll have to settle for the clip.

This is my favorite viral video. I saw it a couple of years ago and it's so ridiculously cute that I can't even tell you how many times I've watched it. When I'm in a bad mood I watch baby Ethan rip up paper and it always makes me laugh.

This is my favorite clip from my favorite TV show, The Big Bang Theory. If you're not watching that show, seriously, go Itunes yourself some episodes, right this very second. The Big Bang Theory is quite possibly my favorite show of all time. In case you're not familiar with it, it's about four extremely smart and nerdy friends and the cute girl who lives across the hall. Jim Parsons plays Sheldon Cooper, who I think is the most brilliant character every created on TV. Sheldon Cooper is a physicist with a genius IQ and no social skills, and he is so hilariously funny. Jim Parsons is an amazing actor, who plays that part so perfectly. I couldn't decide which clip from the show to put in this blog post because there are a million funny ones. I was going to go with a compilation of funny Sheldon moments, because I adore him, but in the end I decided to go with my all time favorite clip. In recent seasons they've given Sheldon a girlfriend, played by Mayim Bialik, who I also absolutely adore. She's a perfect female Sheldon and I love scenes with the two of them together.

In this scene she has gotten in a fight with Sheldon and he goes to Penny (the cute girl across the hall) to have her help him smooth things over. Penny takes him to buy her some jewelery as an apology. Watch what happens next. :)

My next video clip is my favorite inspirational video clip. A singer named Hillary Weeks wrote a song called Beautiful Heartbreak that touches me every time I hear it, even moreso when I watch the video. The song is about being grateful for the trials in your life and seeing them as an opportunity to grow and change, and that's something that I've tried to do when I've encountered obstacles in my own life. It's not easy but the watching this video makes always reminds me that things could be worse and that every fork in the road is an opportunity for a new journey. I love it and it's worth sharing.

And lastly, I leave you with a video of Clarissa singing Soft Kitty, a song that comes from The Big Bang Theory. Shawn taught it to her and this video makes me smile.

So those are a few of my favorite things today! Check back tomorrow and maybe I'll share my favorite books or my favorite songs or my favorite foods or some other random thing! Fun!:)

"Why make trillions when we can make billions?" We watched that Austin Powers video like a hundred times. Hilarious! I remember watching that "How I Met Your Mother" episode that's on your blog. It is a really funny episode. Also, I remember watching the video where Sheldon gave Amy Farrah Fowler (Sheldon's girlfriend on "The Big Bang Theory") the tiara. Her reaction to that thing was hysterical.
