It's A Marshmallow

(When being pissed to the eyeballs was still acceptable.)


Tom Bailey said...

I like that video but for some reason I connect it to Vegas and Christmas. The phrase "pissed to the eyeballs" did make me laugh and try to think of sentences to use the phrase.


Ces said...

Aaaaw sweetheart! You are going so fast I can't keep up with you! Slow down, will you please...I am out of breath! Ah I can't see the video but the image, that's what our city is going to look like today, well, not quite like that. Probably it will turn to slush. It was sleeting this morning on the way to work. It is cold in my office, my windows are frosty and it is cold. I am thinking of you and you know what it means - my heart is warmed. Have a lovely and loving day honey.

I love that phrase too Renee!
Thanks for sharing this clip!
Love, Darla

Annie said...

A marshmallow world indeed. I so wish it were so. xoxo

Linda said...

Who doesn't love Dean Martin! He always makes me feel like singing along.

I've never heard that phrase either, but I like it!

A friend used to scream 'well, pissweed!' when she was really vexed. I have no idea what that is, if anything. But, it sounded so ridiculous that we would all crack up and no longer be upset.

None of us can see past today. Today is the place to spend time.

xoxo right back at you

Deborah said...

Well how delightful was that! Dean and Frank **swoons**. Wait. Pissed to the eyeballs is no longer acceptable? Oops. My bad.
**hiccup** Deb

kj said...

you mean like, i'm pissed to the eyeballs that your christmas got screwed up?

yup, that would be descriptive enough.

i'm thinking of you a day early today. i am going to carry you around soft in my pocket and close near my heart and we are going to say little 'fuck fucks' together, and then we are going to have hot chocolate and eat some boston cream pie.

oh, and we may learn to do that skip that our lori does, you know the one where she moves her hips and seems to fly off the ground.

Hey!! That is the chemo mom will be starting next week!! Woohoo! I am going to be reading up on it so I know what to expect for mom. How are you feeling? Other than "pissed to the eyeballs" hehehe! (she was diagnois at stage 1, but with the # of spots over the last 9 years, she is stage 3 now)

Jackie said...

I noticed you are not posting my comments or responding to me. I am hurt. I am sorry if i offended you or did something. I really can't imagine what it could have been . If you want to talk to me about it you can email me. I am truly sorry for whatever . My intentions are only loving .

~Babs said...

the video makes me smile,,,

Angela Recada said...

Good memories.

"Pissed to the gills" is another phrase I haven't heard in ages.
Those were the days my friend, I thought they'd never end. We'd sing and dance forever and a day. (Remember that one?)

I dance like Dino and Frank to this day, all through the house. The cat sits and stares, the dog tries to dance along, my husband (Chuck) chuckles and the kids just shake their heads and say, "There goes mom again."

You should see me dance to "The Nutcracker"! I AM the sugarplumb fairie, jumping and twirling all over the kitchen!

Hugs hugs hugs, dear friend,

Sarah said...

LOL Renee..I love the picture...not so much the singers..but the song was fun. Hugs to you sweety...Sarah

yoborobo said...

Oh, Dean and Frank always cheer me up. :) Especially watching Frank try and pull his socks up and sing. haha! We might get some marshmallow coming down manana. "Getting pissed to the eyeballs." What a phrase that is! Maybe I'll just get pissed to my upper lip. My headache won't be as bad that way! Love you xoxox Pam

Silver said...

"Those are marshmallow clouds being friendly
In the arms of the evergreen trees
And the sun is red like a pumpkin head
It's shining so your nose wont freeze."

..I wanna live there!!!!!

and uh? pissed to the eyeballs?? Sorry, this phrase is new to me.

love you muchie,

Javajune said...

Oh Renee this video remindes me of my grandparents. For a moment I felt like I was right back in they're living room watching my my grandmothers feet sway to the music and I could hear grandpa say "whew doggies they're good!" I miss them so much. Thank you for this memory. The oldies are still goodies! Love it and you!!!!

studio lolo said...

Hey Raven sister...being Canadian I knew what you meant ;)

I also love the phrase...'in his cups!'

You make me smile.

I used to have a HUGE crush on Dean.


kj said...

HAHAHA, so i screwed up the whole point-hahaha. you must be older than me....heeheehaforgetthat.

lakeviewer said...

Dean and Frank were always funny together, as though they just returned from some adventure. How do you come up with these things?

I loved your previous post on putting up the Christmas tree. (How do I get so far behind?) WE wait till the last weekend for a very good reason. We hate to go out and freeze our tush cutting the tree; so, we wait for good weather which never comes. Now that we are away from our families, we try to put up all the decorations, but it is never the same.

Christmas is the time when I miss everybody!

I'm glad your family will come together.

Lori ann said...

Dear Renee,
Did you just fall off the couch laughing when they twirled around? i did. heehee. Thanks for the memories, my parents were big fans, complete with the cigarette like between deans fingers.
and oh kj. you make me blush.
Stay warm today my sweet Renee, I know it's cold up there,

Silver said...

Oooh.. (laughing, rolling on the floor)

Nice expression. ;D

yup, i am going to expect most of my friends to be VERY 'pissed to the eyeballs' this coming holidays..


Manon Doyle said...

Now Dean and Frank were pretty suave in the day!! Thanks for sharing the *marshmallow world*!

I'm so glad to have met you too my friend!!

I love you!!


kj said...

and now used by a french canandian italian aspiring babe in hicccuping defense of her beloved friend...


Great-Granny Grandma said...

Wow! That really is an oldie. I love it.

Marion said...

Renee, I sent you my home address via your hotmail email that I had saved.

Great song and hilarious. I love you. xoxoxo

Angie Muresan said...

Yes, indeedy maam! Pissed to the eyeballs. Love it!

staceyjwarner said...

If I hadn't lived in London, I would have been lost...

much love to you as always sweet Renee!

zoe said...

what a curious couple of goons! that kind of music, oddly enough, really does make me think of christmas more than any other kind. i'd never seen any of it performed before though :D thanks!

RNSANE said...

That was a cheerful, bright song which really made me laugh. Those two always were a lot of fun!

kj said...

dance with me under the stars, moon sister. i don't care if you're already engaged to cs, let's dance with dean and frank crooning in the background, all four of us drunk as skunks, pissed to the eyeballs, laughing so hard we fall and stay exactly where we land (ah, renee, could you move just a little so i can catch my breath?)


Baino said...

Hahahahahaha . . now that's better than the blues. At least he remembered all the words! You mean it's no longer acceptable. Bugga!

secret agent woman said...

But didn't they look like they were having a blast? (Although at first I thought you were talking about being angry.)

mermaid said...

I say it's still acceptable:)

glorv1 said...

I loved Dean Martin. It was very sad when he lost his son. Just stopped by to say hi and hope you are doing well. Have a great weekend. Take care.

Woman in a Window said...


(back when the world was perhaps a little more honest, a little more real and everyone knew not to be an idiot and eat the yellow snow!)

I so needed that!

Marie said...

Great video Renee! Boy, did that take me back!!

Allegra Smith said...

He is fine, luckier than both of us so far, no nausea, tired but that is to be expected. How am I? well...I am. The damn tinnitus is playing havoc with my sense of hearing and my headache is one that could win a gold medal in the Headaches Olympics.

But the play was fine, and you can call me Mary Todd Lincoln.

I want to know about Jacquie and what they are doing for you. I put your name last week again on The Healing Circle and of course Jacquie's has been there since the beginning of this bad dream. I believe it is time for us all to wake up and keep on living. I love Renee, I wish I knew why this feeling is so strong and so familiar, but we have spoken about this before and it hasn't gone away one iota. Au contraire, it increases with each passing day and it becomes more and more comforting to know it, to reacquaint myself with it, like an old book we have read once and although the plot escapes us, we know the words by heart, and to turn the pages is comforting to the soul.

Sending you Love and Light as always. You are in my heart.

Momo Luna said...

Hi there dear Renee, haven't been around for awhile because of my illness. But it's getting better now. And it's december! the time of joy, so that helps....
Lovely picture, great link. I'm a fan of Frank Sinatra. Today it's pakjesavond in Holland, (if you wanna know what that is, read my blog. ;-)) but next week there will be also Xmas music on my blog and ofcourse Ole blue eyes can't be missed.
I wish you a nice December with all your beloved ones. Amd i hope that i have enough enrgy soon to visit again all my favourite blogs....

Sweet greetz and a big hug!

deepazartz said...

Hey Renee

The picture is so cute...pretty.
Though I couldn't make much of that expression, I found myself smiling...and thts good right?!

Have a happy weekend!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Not only pissed to the eyeballs, but smoking while performing! Great video!

Momo Luna said...

I thought i left a comment here, hmm something went wrong i think. The idea of a marshmellow world is so sweet. I;m a fan of Frank Sinatra, his warm voice always makes me happy.
I wish a warm, joyful december for you Renee, December can be difficult for missing the beloved onces who aren't amongst us, but they're always there in your heart.
Sweet greetz....
