It's a gloomy Monday and we are home from work feeling tired and dirty. After all, we did clean 5 toilets each today and 1 urinal.....yuck. Housekeeping makes us feel kind of weird leaving our own houses dirty. So... who wants to clean our houses?

We realized that when other blogs put up two videos, we only watch the first one. Therefore, we've decided not to torture you with 2 videos a week anymore (unless you like it.....). Aren't we nice to you? You love us.

The band that we chose for today is called Current Swell they are a super cute bunch of surfer boys (which I love) from Victoria, BC. Lissy thinks it looks like a Tim Hortons coffee commercial, but I just love the fact that you can see Tofino in the vid (and that they are a bunch of cute surfer boys... did I say that already?).

Giveaway day tomorrow, you guys excited? Entry deadline 10 tonight.


Well... obviously we didn't get to the playlist. Nor have I changed the song of the day in a while. Kim's internet is still out, I blame her.

In keeping with the theme of Late, the videos will be late too, because Kim and I are working. Yes, working, I know. After years and years and years and years of being SAHM's, we decided to get summer jobs... together. Nothing glamorous, of course, but our roles as servants for the last few years sorta trained us well for the job.

So anyway, did you remember that today is the last day to enter the giveaway? Well it is. So if you haven't done it yet, do it now. Or if you want to add another entry, do that now.

Hope you all have glorious days today, or at least decent ones.

My oldest friend, Cyan and I, Mayday 1987. We were pretty certain that the newspaper declaring us the future May Queens 1. Made us famous 2. Was as valid as a magic 8 ball, so like 100% true

Our little island celebrates Mayday the Saturday after the May long weekend every year. There's a parade, maypole dancing, a cute little May Queen giving a speech, and my favorite part, bagpipes.  Pretty much our entire community goes to Rebecca Spit, rain or shine, to partake in the festivities, like: getting drunk during the picnic, tripping over some feral children while running the three legged races or using ones entire body, like the hand of a masturbating man, while trying to get the money at the top of the grease pole. That is where our families will be tomorrow, bright and early. Yippee!

So anyway, about the delay. Our playlist is going to be late... again. I'll be spending the day today at the dentist with my kids, getting their hillbilly teeth fixed, and Kim's internet is down. So no time for playlist fun this rainy day. Hopefully tonight we'll get to it, otherwise it'll be tomorrow, after our Mayday fun.

Also, sorry about the lack of posting this week. No excuse for it besides laziness. There is a reason my dad has called me Lazy Loo, my entire life. I'm not sure what Kim's excuse is.

PS. Only 4 more days to enter our giveaway don't miss out!

It's Monday again.......

Hopefully you all had a great long weekend.

So, the video I chose is by Green Day ft. the cast from the Broadway musical, American's more of a recording session for the song 21 guns. Hope you enjoy it...xo kim

My mind is still reeling from the series finale of Lost. Well, no, not exactly reeling, because it was the ending that I was expecting, in so as that they were all dead, there was a sorta purgatory thing going on, and that I was still left with questions afterwards, maybe empty is a better word. Or in shock? My favorite show is over, done and I think maybe I'm mourning it a lil bit today. I didn't get dressed until after 12 today and I ate twizzlers for breakfast... fine, that last part is normal, *cough*

Okay, even I realize how lame that is. It's a TV show, I get it. But I looked at it as more than that. It was a puzzle to work on every week. Kim and I worked at it together a lot. I'll be over it soon, promise.  I never stay down for long.

So anyway, I struggled finding a video today, that is why this post is so late. My mood held me down, until I decided to go with it and went looking for a song/video that suited it. You don't need upbeat ones every week do you?

I settled with Sia's Breathe Me, it's a song I've loved for a long time now, but I'd never seen the video until today, and you know what? It's pretty awesome, if you like this sorta thing, which I do.

Is it too much to ask...

that the universe send me:

 Eggs Benny with a slice of ham the size of my HEAD...

A van made of candy...

And that the eating of these things make me look like this in a bathingsuit?

I don't think so, do you?

Better Late Than Never...

Kim's away this weekend, so it was left for me to post Friday's playlist. Yeah... well, I forgot. It was even all ready for me. We actually put it together on Thursday, to be ahead of the game... pfft.

But listen, I had a very good excuse. Get this, I was OUTside... GARDENING!

I know! Lissy, gardening! Chris looked to the sky for flying pigs or the second coming of Christ, but no, it was ALL me. (cue angles singing here)

I have mentioned the awesomeness that flows through my veins, yes? Well, usually, the open air, the great outdoors, it's kryptonite to my Awesome, therefore, I avoid it like a pap smear. There was an awful lot of weeding to do though, (cuz I didn't do it once last year... shhhh) and there was some weird motivation thing going on too... well anyway. Yes. Lissy gardened. And now my body is angry at me.

 (This is what I look like when I garden, don't know why I don't do it more often)

Back to the music. We decided to do a Song of the Day playlist. So that if there was any song that you liked, but only got to hear the one time, it would be here for you to listen to whenever. So yeah, better late than never, right?

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

Hearts& Bubbles,

PS. Welcome all new readers, we love to have you here.
PPS. Don't forget to enter our first ever giveaway.

I break up with Monday every week, but it comes back week after week. Apparently it listens as well as a three year old. Not impressed.

My weekend was amazing. The food, the hydropath, the company, my new flipflops, but not the bed. I'm still in pain from the bed. If you ever get the chance to go the the Kingfisher, I suggest you take your own pillow and an extra stomach.

Am slightly grumpy today for no other reason than it's Monday, so I thought I'd pick out a video that's fun and dark all at once. I love Charlotte Sometimes, if you haven't heard her before, go check out her myspace and have a listen,  she'll charm you.


Well, for me, mornings and I don't get along very well, but generally coffee comes in and smooths it all out for us. My video this lovely Monday morning is by John Butler Trio ('m loving their new album April this is one of their new video from that album....hope you like it!! xo

Have a great Monday!!!!!
