Give the Finger

Wonder what happens when you've just moved to a foreign country, are jet lagged and delirious, and your husband gets a hold of your Flip camcorder? Enjoy a good laugh!

[Disclaimer: Yes, I took typing classes—in both grade and high schools. Yes, I type like a fool. Yes, I trumped the other kids in speed tests. No, I never kept my fingers on the proper keys. I figure there's more than one way to skin a cat.]

I'm hysterically laughing... can't stop. So funny! Thank you for sharing. Made my night. xx Nina

JP said...

That's hilarious. Do you only use your index and pinky fingers on your left hand to type?

Courtney said...

Learned something new about me, huh JP :) I basically use all fingers except the middle left and ring fingers, LOL. I'd imagine every typing teacher in the world would cringe beyond belief at my pecking skills!!

heather said...

Clearly ya'll are slap happy! Too funny.

SGM said...

I had no idea that typing could make me laugh SO HARD. And I love that JJ cannot keep the camera still because HE is laughing so hard.

I watched it once then pulled in husband in to see. I was confused how you did it! We both got a laugh on this one. Hope you're getting settled! I'm imagining your poor doggie is delirious by now...

Lucy said...

haha... my husband and I just watched this together. My husband described your hand as a "spastic spider." I love it! Very unique.

I hope everything is going well for y'all.

Frau said...

Too cute, your husband just ignores your JJ pleas to stop filming. He is very entertaining. Hope you are doing well and settling in.

Stephanie said...

I loved this (I'm a superfast three finger typist - my old boss used to point and laugh - good times!) The best part is you saying JJ over and over - too, too funny!

Hope you are settling in a little. xo.

Joyce said...

Courtney- Hmmm... could finger exercising videos be your next calling?! Thanks for the laughs. xoxo

PS How is Miss B doing?

MIMILEE said...

HILARIOUS!!............I am impressed by your speed, girl!

Dolce said...

I didn't know a person who typed with two fingers could type so fast. I was mesmerized.

"Like a cobra about to strike." :-)
Btw, I took your recommendation to go to Bubby's! I went for dinner last night and had the mac and cheese. Soooo delicious! Thanks for the tip!

Going to KL to take more jobs out of the USA?

erika said...

Nice comment up there from anonymous... I think perhaps you should set them straight and let them know you are representing the USA.

JJ, I am proud of you.

Chance and I watched this video toggether, and loved it. Thanks for taking charge of the Flip JJ!

Yoli said...

That should be on America's funniest videos.

Courtney said...

Anonymous 10:53: My husband's role is Business Development, which is actually to create more jobs/work for US businesses. Perhaps learning more about our situation before judging would be great prior to making an assumption. But nonetheless, thanks for your concern.

Also, just for future reference, I'm great at taking the "good" with the "bad," so feel free to sign your name!

Best, Courtney
