Twenty Things I Learned from Netflix

20 things I learned

You may have heard that I got a new flatscreen TV for my birthday after waiting (unsuccessfully) for our old tube TV to break. So as soon as we unpacked the box and set it up, I hooked myself up for a free month of Netflix. I learned so much just by watching TV in February!

1. The Walking Dead is on Netflix!
2. Battlestar Galactica is on Netflix!
3. The only way to kill zombies is through the head.
4. The only way to kill Cylons is through the head.
5. Supplies are hard to get after a zombie apocalypse.
6. Supplies are hard to come by after Cylons destroyed human civilization.
7. There are more zombies than humans.
8. There are more Cylons than humans.
9. Zombies freak me out!
10. Cylons really freak me out!
11. Running from zombies ages you.
12. Running from Cylons ages you.
13. Zombies are easy to spot. After all, they’re dead.
14. Cylons are easy to spot. After all, they’re robots…
15. Unless of course, they are Cylons who look like humans.
16. Zombies’ nicknames are Walkers or Biters.
17. Cylons’ nicknames are Toasters.
18. Bear McCreary wrote the music for The Walking Dead.
19. Bear McCreary wrote the music for Battlestar Galactica.
20. After staying up late watching TV, I can totally survive with only 4 hours of sleep. Yes, I can.

Valentine’s Day Heart Craft

Happy Valentine's Day

Yesterday I was playing around with cutting out hearts and glitter. Yes, glitter! I love glitter, but not the mess it makes! In this video I show you the cut-out heart I made, along with a little trick to try to keep the glitter in its place. I also tried to inject a little humor into my vlog. Funny? Not so funny? (My kids didn’t think I was funny AT ALL. But they want to make the paper heart this weekend.)

Watch video here.

I also have a couple of housekeeping reminders to share with you; don’t forget to write about a football term and link up with the Spin Cycle by Friday! (You really don’t have to know anything about football to write. See more details here.)

My book The Mother of All Meltdowns is on sale for Valentine’s Day! Go to our Create Space website and use the password moam123. Get an actual copy of the book for 50% off the regular price with the code 75N5ZSBR!

Easy Groundhog Day Craft and Song

Groundhog Day is one of my favorite days! (Psst…February 2nd is my birthday!)

Groundhog Day craft

Of course you know that a groundhog has no relation to a pig, but did you know that a groundhog is also called a woodchuck? So it would be entirely appropriate to say, “How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?” on Groundhog Day!

Emmy and I put together an easy craft for Groundhog Day instead. Watch how to make it in the video below. Lily is videotaping us, and I apologize for the shakiness! Emmy and I also sing a little Groundhog song for you. The words are below.

Watch video here.

Tune: I’m a Little Teapot

Here’s a Little Groundhog

Here’s a little groundhog furry and brown
He’s coming up to look around.
If he sees his shadow, down he’ll go,
Then six more weeks of winter, OH NO!

(lyrics: author unknown)

Happy Groundhog Day! 😉

I could totally be Molly’s best friend.

Call me Molly

I don’t watch that much TV, but when I do, I watch faithfully. (Faithfully means I record my shows on my DVR and then watch them a month after the show airs.) I love watching Mike and Molly, and am so happy CBS brought it back! Melissa McCarthy plays the character Molly brilliantly. I was a little disappointed that Molly quit her teaching job, however, since I love teaching and she hates it. But we are both struggling writers, so we have that in common. For this week’s vlogging prompt I’m answering the question, “If you could have a role on a TV show, which show would you choose?” I should totally be on Mike and Molly. It takes place in Chicago, right? I live here already, so bring me in!

New Year’s Tag

Happy New Year (2)

It’s time for Mama Kat’s Vlogging Workshop! Since we have over a foot of snow outside and had no school due to extreme temperatures, I took the video outside. Let me just clarify; I recorded my vlog outside last week before the frigid below zero Fahrenheit temperature hit. We did NOT go outside for two days. (I did take out the garbage and get the mail. And put a cooler of food on the porch so I could defrost my freezer. I used “the world as my freezer,” as Ed likes to say.)

Watch HERE.
