Mammoth Mountain Moments & a Lesson in Branding

As promised, my lovelies, I’m pleased to present episode 2 of Mammoth Mountain Moments.  It’s a very clever (if I do say so myself) foray into the world of the brains behind the Ms. Cheevious brand… and all under the guise of Apres Ski drinks, and revelry.  It’s true!  In the blink of an eye, you’ll be talking “Brand Equity” and “Funny Factor” in the same sentence, and still sound like an expert.  Pretty nice, eh?

I do a pretty good job of setting this video up for you, but suffice it to say… it’s worth the watch!  And tune in until the very end, where I have a GUEST VOICEOVER artist present my little “lesson.”  Can you guess who it is?  HA!  Please enjoy it, and then follow-through and post comments on Youtube, as well as here on the blog.  It’ll take — ohhhhh, three minutes out of your life – but then, your witty charms and pithy remarks will go down in internet history!  People will be clamoring to know who wrote that TOTALLY RAD comment. It’s so very true.  Can’t wait to launch your pithy remarks internet career and see where it takes you!  🙂

Oh, and, by the way, I am doing perfectly well and recovering FANTASTICALLY, after the first stage of my surgery I underwent this past Monday, December 5th, also mentioned in my post “I’m Too Sexy for My Genes“.  I got an A+ for how things could go in surgery, and an A+ upon my first after-surgery visit to the doc’s office.  She was quite pleased.  If all goes according to plan, Nuggie*, and I will be boarding a plane to New England for Christmas next Monday.  If it does NOT, well, we’ll be decking the halls of the Beach Palace.  I’m banking on all going according to plan, but stay tuned for more on that!

For those of you who still enjoy READING, here’s for you gals and gents in the event you ever deal with this:  My List of Tips for the Post-Surgery, Near-the-Holidays Blues:

  1. One word.  SWELL.  In other words, something you won’t feel… unless of course you relegate the word “SWELL” to it’s literal definition:  A huge amount of puffiness, due to an undue amount of fluid retention.  Oh, your entire body will feel and look years younger.  Yep.  No wrinkles or anything, because you’ll retain SO MUCH FLUID, your skin will feel as though it’s about to POP from the stretching and the swelling. No wrinkles, my lovelies, but no guarantees on no stretch marks afterward either!
  2. MEDS & SIDE EFFECTS. If you have any allergies to antibiotics on the books, well, just PLAN to add RASH and ITCHY-BODY to the mix.  There is a good chance you’ll be allergic to at least ONE of the meds prescribed in order to help you heal afterward. This will further increase the effects of item #1, because we all know that when we rash-out, we also blimp-up.
  3. DIET. Don’t eat foods containing enormous amounts of CHEESE the day or night before surgery.  Just don’t.
  4. GOOD OLE GRANDMA. Plan to wear your granny clothes for at least two weeks, because nothing else will fit or look decent..
  5. HOLIDAY ATTIRE. Start planning weeks ahead of time what you can wear to that one holiday or Christmas gathering… do so in a vain attempt to try and fool others into thinking you’re the same old you, and you did NOT just undergo a major procedure.  And, although you’d normally be wearing your skinny jeans or mini-skirt and sexy top with stilettos, it was a FASHION choice to don the Black turtle neck, long loose skirt, high heeled boots and festive jewels. Because, well, it IS all the rage… somewhere.  The new sleek departure from your usual fashion statement should help distract sufficiently from what I like to call your “surgery center” – in my case, the newly formed BULBUS boobies protruding from my body, and the puffed out arms, legs, fingers and toes — there normally to help me manage life, but will barely help me squeak around the Christmas Tree this year.
  6. SMOOTH MOVE. With much Pain Medication comes much Constipation.  HA! No.  That IBS won’t come in handy now.  Eat healthy stuff afterward so you can – ehem – “eliminate” things when you need to.  Oh!  And repeat after me:  Stool Softeners are Your Friend.
  7. NURSES CAN HELP YOU. When your hot man or lady offers to “nurse” you back to health, say YES.  And let them.  Just pretend they are wearing a Chippendale’s or Playboy Bunny costume, and let the medications take over.  You’ll be drooling in your sleep in no time …and, you can claim  it’s all due to hot dreams and fantasies, and not the lack of olfactory control you have while sleeping — yeah!
  8. ENJOY EVERY SINGLE MOMENT. You’re here aren’t you?  You made it!  It’s only a matter of time before you are back in charge and in control, so enjoy the moments, and have a good sense of humor.  It’s the only way to live!

As for me, I’ve been extremely busy resting my bod on the sofa in the living room of the Beach Palace. Of course, there have been the occasional meds, sponge baths, and slow, leisurely walks around the block.  Next week, if I’m recovering nicely, I’ll venture out to get some last minute Christmas presents off in the mail.  I hope all is well with every single one of you, and I look forward to hearing more from you all on your plans!

Have a NOGGY week of Christmas, Chanukah, Quanza (sp?) and any other Holiday festivities.  Tune in next time for LORD KNOWS WHAT, but it’s sure to entertain!

Love you people!!!!!  Mmmmmpppphhhhuuuhhhh!!!!
