Two Truths and a Video

1. When my parents named me, they had never met anyone else named Megan before.

2. In 2003, I studied abroad in Ireland with about 30 other American students. I was one of four Megans in the group.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Also, I watched this episode of 30 Rock when I was visiting my friend Meghan in Arizona. We were sitting on the couch together, laughing during this scene.

Sing the chorus, Papa Bear.

I’m sure most of you have already seen this, but it’s so good I had to post it.

The lyrics are available at YouTube. (Grownups – click on “Show More” under the video.)

What’s Great About Iowa

Although I’ve never been there, these two videos have really made me love the state of Iowa:

They are also a good reminder that one law doesn’t speak for everyone.

My soulmate

She likes math, elephants and youtube; and she talks fast.  Clearly she is my soulmate.

I Love My Ducks

I can’t get enough of this song or this video.

I would like to marry the guy who raps on the mini tractor. Also, Puddles with a rim spinning might be the greatest thing ever.

Flash Mob – Holiday Version

Yesterday I participated in a flash mob at Pioneer Place mall downtown.  I’d say maybe 100-150 people were part of the group who was milling around in the atrium and upper floors of the mall when we all spontaneously froze for 5 minutes, then started singing Christmas carols.  There was an “official video” taken of the event, but it’s not posted online yet.  Until I can share that with you, I thought I’d post a couple of my favorite flash mob videos. Ours wasn’t nearly this good or well-coordinated, of course:

The Airport Greeters:

I love a capella singing.  I think my favorite part of this video is the “Return of the Mack” guy with the sunglasses (assuming he’s truly caught off-guard and not a plant). He’s so perfect for the song!

The Train Station:

It’s so cool how people go from being “stunned passersby” into performers in a moment.

One of the songs we sang for our performance was “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” which is one of my favorite Christmas songs. Of all the versions, though, this may be the best:

Official video coming soon!
