barry manilow.

I'm back from my blogging hiatus. I just needed some time for myself. So this is kind of a pointless post just to say Hi and I'm back! However, you, our dear readers are in luck! I'm going to tell you something funny and slightly humiliating!

So I needed to channel all of my hurt, anger, loneliness, etc. into something but couldn't figure out what to do. I sure as fuck wasn't going to do laundry or clean. So I went to Wal-Mart and while aimlessly wandering around I remembered the button flower bouquets I saw at a vintage store. Needless to say, I bought every single button in the store.

I seriously started putting in hours of time into these suckers. As in I made an entire bouquet, didn't like it, took it apart and started over. I even bought a box for organization and spent 2 hours organizing by color.

Here is a button flower is for those who don't know:
Those are some I found on google. I was actually going to take a picture of the ones I made, but my camera is dead. Bummer.


I decided I needed to download some sappy sad breakup songs for the occasion. I decided on some sweet tunes by Barry Manilow because, well, there isn't anything much more depressing (plus I had seen a news article similar to this earlier in the day).

Then I started to notice the strange pop-ups for some AdVirus2009 business.

I ended up with a computer virus from a Barry Manilow song.

Specifically, I ended up with a virus from Barry Manilow's song "I Can't Smile Without You." A song I had never even heard. I was just going to download "Mandy" or something of the sorts but when I saw the title I was all "Oh! That song will be PERFECT!"

You can quit laughing at me now

FML. Really? Barry EFFING Manilow? I think the only way the situation could have been worse would have been getting the virus from Barney's "I Love You."

And can we just take a moment to talk about how creepy Mr. Barry Manilow is? His skin is so taught.

Apparently Barry Manilow is to facelifts & botox what Michael Jackson is to nose jobs & skin bleaching.

Not a Fanilow,

P.S. I figured out how to stop the pop-ups so I'm thinking I'm in the clear for now. Next time I'm going for Celine Dion.

I missed you! I am so glad you are back...with a cute craft and a funny story, no less. How do you make the button bouquets? Glad you are starting to feel better. :)

I got a virus from downloading Frank Zappa. :) Don't know who he is? I didn't either til I heard these lovely words in Nigel's car.."I have been in you and you have been in me too. And we have been with eachother so intimately"

Yup downloading music is a bitch but I love it.

I made a flower button bonquet once at my grandmas. She is a big crafts person. I think that is something I want to make again.

I'm really disturbed by the picture of Barry Manilow.

REALLY disturbed. Like, to the point where I saw it once, and had to scroll the page so I couldn't see it anymore.


-Not a Fanilow either,

Under the Influence said...

Be glad all you caught from Mr. Manilow was a COMPUTER virus.

Jen - The Secret Keeper said...

Such an appropriate post! I was going through my Ipod this morning looking for something good for the way to work and I actually stumbled accross Barry Manilow! I could've died! How did he get in my Ipod???? I'm certainly not a Fanilow!

I could recommend some decent "feel sorry for yourself" music, along with the "pick me up" tracks! xx
