Weird Al Yankovic and Migraines


I have been fairly stressed following a difficult week and a half. Between flying to Florida for my uncle's funeral, lack of overall sleep, and a large event that I proctored at work, I am pretty much beat. On top of everything my headaches have been plaguing me. Blurred vision in the evenings has returned. There is no doubt in my mind that much of this is simple fatigue taking its toll. I really need sleep. Luckily I slept well last night (Friday). I was up around 7ish, made some coffee, upload a photograph for a future blog posting, and was getting to write about Alzheimer's when my younger daughter El came into the living room. She has my same sarcastic and underhanded sense of humor and we both like watching strange and often hilarious videos on the web. Naturally, I try to screen out filth. Yet I am not beyond pure twisted humor. So when El asked me to find some videos of Weird Al Yankovic I immediately hit search in YouTube. We laughed so hard I couldn't breathe. Come'on! I mean, this guy is downright sick. Whether he portraying a Gangsta Amish guy, a rapping nerd, singing about crap on Ebay, or belting out a polka with accordions and tubas in full flare while singing, “Doncha wish your girlfriend was hot like me,” Weird Al shares the Bobblehead's slightly off kilter humor. A huge number of videos later my migraine was gone and my daughter was wiping tears of laughter from her face. Cool.

    I'm so glad to hear that the gift of laughter Al brings with his hilarious videos made your migraine go away. Btw, it's Yankovic. ;)

  2. I checked the spelling 3 times and STILL got it wrong. Sorry about that. Al's name has been corrected. Thanks for finding the typo.
    A friend of mine let me know Al has a DVD. I must get a copy.
