This IS it! I don't know if I can post beyond this-just enjoying Snowball's Cockatoo Dance TOO much! The preceding post/YouTube (Cockatoo Dance) is absolutely, positively, beyond any shadow of doubt my favorite YouTube video ever! This trumps any Grey's Anatomy or Scrubs video and for those of you that know what a medical/surgical groupie I am -that's huge! :)
This "IS" the video equivalent of Trenchy's, (so perfectly timed one liner) "Throckmorton Salad Bar Test" ER Doc and author of Trench Doc blog-now closed. Nothing has trumped that as yet- it still levels me. :) Then there is "Chinese Pager Torture" by ER Dr Whitecoat author of the Whitecoat Rant blog, "Veggie Tales" by ER Doc, author of Scalpel or Sword blog and "Tricks of the Trade" by ER Doc (Charity Doc) author of the Fingers and Tubes in Every Orifice blog. *Scroll down to May 4th for this post (There are many, many great posts out there in the blogosphere and I have thoroughly enjoyed them all!)
As I predicted, I am playing Dancing Cockatoo repetitively and have cranked up the volume. I have been dancing around the house to this while doing chores today.
While fun...t'is not a good thing because I may have a partially torn my meniscus in my r. knee although the medrol packet has helped me tremendously. I had a partially torn rotator cuff once that healed on it's own and so my wonderful ortho doc (saw him Monday) thought there was a chance this might work on my knee. I could not walk for 5 days without tremendous knife stabbing pain and now I am dancing around! I know I should not, but I- can't- help- it!
But I digress.
Has anyone tried doing exactly what Snowball is doing right along with him? I Did!! It's fun! I know... not good for the meniscus right now, but dang it is fun to dance with a BIRD! (he could be working at the Y or a health spa. :) It is also fun to shake my tuft...ahem ...hair with him. Couldn't ya just see him in Dirty Dancing? I think I have a crush on him...but shhh...don't tell my husband! ;) His little legs...aren't they just so precious? I could kiss and cuddle him forever...that is when we're not dancing! :)
Well...back to work and dancing. I hope when family comes home they don't mind too terribly much that I am dancing and squawking right along with Snowball. Of course they will probably just ask me to stop singing... P-L-E-A-S-E because as they would most assuredly tell you I am not real good at carrying a tune and they will probably think Snowball sounds better than me! But... I'-vvvv-e got rrrr-h-y-t-h-mmm ...who could ask for anything more? ;)
I can't imagine anyone not liking this video and getting in the mood right along with snowball. If this doesn't cause you to smile and at least tap your foot or fingers...then you may want to check your pulse. If you don't know how to check your pulse then I strongly recommend that you get right in to see your PCP or go to the nearest ER because....YOU'RE DEAD! ;)
***Seriously...I think this would be therapeutic on an oncology ward or in any healing facility area. Well except for ICU...because it might be too uplifting (if that is a concern). Laughter sends healing vibes throughout the cells of our bodies, promoting wellness in many areas too numerous to mention here. Laughter? T'is a good thing!
I think it would be fun to start an aerobics class with this video playing and if I were the instructor...I would have them do it for a warm up! :)
ROCK ON Snowball!!
P.S. It has been a while since I posted this earlier, but as I previously stated...I have been replaying this frequently and it occurs to me that there is a good chance I may dream about this bird tonight and hence surprise my sleeping husband with a SQUAWK or two! ;)
(Once I YELLED "FIRE!, FIRE!"...but that's another story. :)
P.P.S It has been about 12 hours since I wrote this post but just wanted to say that not only am amused but I am also both and impressed and intrigued with Snowball. I want to know what he is saying when he squawks and chirps to the song. Frankly, if I hear that song again without the bird...I will think something is missing! He adds something to it. :) I am intrigued by his movements and the way he seems to throw himself into it just like we would when we are having a great time and dancing with abandon. Am I reading to much into his actions, tainted with my human perceptions? What makes him pick up his left leg, then right at certain times? How is it that he has perfect rhythm? Why does he swing or bob his head to the music? Does he have an ego? He seems to relish in the praise. What motivates him? It's a great beat...but he is a bird! I am going to look at the birds differently the next time I see them all lined up on the telephone wire outside. :)
