Gin and Topics: The Perfect Night and It’s Not About the Nail

By: Gini Dietrich | May 24, 2013 | 

Gin and TopicsWe’re a week behind the Canadians, but the U.S. finally gets their long weekend!

Although, it was 37 degrees in Chicago on Thursday so I don’t know what our long weekend is going to bring us, weather-wise. Perhaps I’ll have to spend it reading and writing, instead of riding my bike a gazillion miles.

BBQs, pool parties, neighborhood corn hole, gardening…what are each of you up to?

When you need a break, you can check out Gin and Topics. This week’s videos are brought to you by Lara Wellman, Sean McGinnis, Kat Krieger, Mr. D., and Susan Cellura.

Happy Memorial Day!

5. The Perfect Night. I heart Sarah Silverman in all of her swear words and inappropriateness  This is supposed to be an anthem for the perfect night for single women, but us married women like this kind of night, as well. It IS the perfect night.

4. Conversations with My Two-Year-Old. This is hilarious! A man comes home from work and faces his two-year-old (played by another man) who tells him he’s not allowed to speak to the princess (her mom). For anyone who has ever dealt with a two-year-old, this will hit very close to home.

3. It’s Not About the Nail. This is funny because it is SO TRUE! Women don’t want men to fix things, even when the solution is staring them in the face and snagging their sweaters. Can’t you just listen?!

2. Baby Scores Goal. This toddler is at a soccer game and, while awards are given out, he keeps himself busy on the field kicking a ball. Watch what happens when he “scores” a goal.

1. Cat and the Vacuum. You can’t really have funny videos without a cat so here you go! This one tries to lick the air out of a vacuum cleaner and keeps getting its face sucked into the tube. Watch what happens when that happens and it fights back.

P.S. There will be no blog posts on Monday in honor of our holiday. See you on Tuesday!

    strange… I’ve tried this page multiple times and maybe it’s something with my computer… but it is just “stuck” on the top of the page – I can’t scroll down to see the entries below… anyone else have a problem? It normally works fine for me…

    • @Cheri Disse Cimmarrusti I have that problem at work but not at home ever since this page’s format has changed. I guess it’s the browser or something …. that or my job doesn’t want me visiting a site with the word “sucks” in the name …. guess I was meant to enjoy this great content at home and not at work! 🙂

    • @Cheri Disse Cimmarrusti Huh…can you tell me which browser you’re using? I’ll see if we can find out what’s wrong.

    ginidietrich Gin and Topics – Absolute delight!! What a wonderful way to usher in a wonderful weekend! Thank you!

  • OMG, I just about died watching Sarah Silverman – that was an awesome share!!! She rocks!
    The parenting vid is something I can totally relate with … BiP actually now tells me to “Buzz off Mummy, I’m making soup for the dragons, you can’t be here”! Rightey-ho …. fabulous round up in true SpinSucks style! Enjoy the long weekend!

    • Ameena Falchetto  I loved her chat with you about Mother’s Day and how it wasn’t your day, it was her day. Little stinker!

  • That listening crap is over rated. Makes men crazy to listen to complaints that can easily be fixed. Really.

    • Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes It’s totally ridiculous women behave that way. I’m not sure we can change.

  • KevinVandever

    It’s Not About the Nail…perfect

    • KevinVandever It’s funny because it’s true!

  • Good lineup. I laughed the whole way through.

    • JoeCardillo It’s no Tight Pants, but it was a good lineup.

  • Ha! The Silverman video rocks. I wonder if the production people who put that together for her can help me with the parody I want to do, morphing “This Girl Is On Fire” into “This Mama’s So Tired” – it’s got “big hit” written all over it ……. in my head. 🙂

    • biggreenpen I’m sure we can make that happen, don’t you think?

      • ginidietrich biggreenpen oh heck yeah – I’m sure there are legions of tired yet hip mamas out there who would volunteer for the project! 🙂

  • rdopping

    Sometimes I just wish you would listen. Gawd!

  • Arment Dietrich, Inc.

    it’s not your computer – it happened to me a couple of times too this morning before I was able to see everything ^pk

  • Gini Dietrich

    We’re trying to figure out what’s going on.
