Friday Funday Wrapup!

I'm still full from a phenomenal dinner last night, the sun is shining, and there's a three day weekend ahead! It's time for the Friday Funday Wrapup! Let's get to it.


This week's book review is brought to you by my sister, who's choices haven't been highlighted here yet. It was actually a recommendation my dad suggested because, while I like a lot of different types of books, my sister and dad sometimes read stuff that my mom and I will pass on. And I think, at times, we miss out on some great ones - like the one I'm highlighting right here.

So, go check out this week's book by clicking here - and enjoy! And, as always, check out the site in general for some really great reads!


Some of you have already hopped right on board with the new Stories about My Underpants Facebook fan page - thank you! But if you're interested in staying up-to-date on all things blog-related, click here, "like" it, and BOOM. Informed.


This little boy is. The. BEST. I've watched this, like, 10 times in the last two days. Also, he's totally right - the "shprinklesh" are NOT, in fact, completely empty. Enjoy.


For those of you who don't have the pleasure of knowing CB in person, I want to preface what you're about to see.

CB, in a lot of ways, is the ying to my yang. While I tend to not know the meaning of "inside voice," CB will often sit there quietly, observing those around him, occasionally adding his two cents to a conversation in a nice, normal volume. He's not one to draw attention to himself or show off in any way, shape, or form.

Except for on the dance floor.

The legend of The Disco Chicken was one I'd heard about for quite some time during the years CB and I sat next to each other at work. And then it popped up again once we started dating. However, I didn't get to experience just what the DC was all about until about a year ago on New Year's Eve, when CB had consumed enough Budweiser and Jameson to bring out the funky side.

However, I've come to learn that alcohol doesn't have to be involved when the music is right and the funky mood strikes him. Though it helps.

To be clear, CB does not refer to his dancing as The Disco Chicken, and instead, this phrase was coined by our dear friend DK some years ago when she was overcome with the unstoppable urge to swoon when CB hit the dance floor.

And last week, complete with drag queens and boas, CB braved the elements and got out there to shake it.

You're welcome.

And thanks to MK for coming up with the idea to get him on film for the blog so our dear readers here could get a taste of what I get to experience every day. The quality isn't the best on either video because they were taken with iPhones and not, you know, professional video equipment. But I think you'll get the gist here, and I don't think you'll be sorry.

Also, this is especially for MK and NK this weekend in the hopes of bringing a few smiles to your faces.

So, without further ado, the Video(s) of the Week, brought to you by CB and The Disco Chicken.


  1. Oh man I'm so jealous!! I'm the WORST dancer. Every time I get drunk I try to do that arm roll wave thing and it ends up with me thinking "I totally nailed it!" only to look up and see all my friends laughing.

    1. Hahaha I'm the same way! CB definitely has the moves I do not possess. I mean, I have rhythm, but not really "moves." You're not alone!

  2. I went to a club here in Houston last summer. And, if you would have seen the so-called dance these people were doing (women turning the rear ends up to the men they were dancing with, pressed right up against the man's groin)... well, you'd agree with me that we need to bring back The Disco Chicken RIGHT NOW!

    I'm here from SITS... have a great week!
