Miscellaneous Madness: The Harlem Shake

Lest you think we take ourselves too seriously at Casa Verde, we spent a significant amount of time yesterday developing, starring in, directing and producing our very own Harlem Shake meme. You see, earlier this week, our Uncle Steve got his office full of Silicon-Valley-startup-company youngsters to break down a real sweet Harlem Shake. We thought it was hysterical. And we thought we could do better, natch.

And after spending 45 minutes and several Venn diagrams explaining to mom what a meme was, we put our heads together and came up with a plan. If you want to see the finished product, you'll have to go to our Facebook page (and, while you're there, just "Like" us already). I gotta say, I was thoroughly impressed (but not that surprised) with Cam's natural ability to play it cool and ignore mom in the intro. And, boy do I have moves (mom's could use some work, but she's old, so we cut her some slack). Too bad the take with me wielding a bat didn't make the cut.

NOW, we have a challenge for you. We want to see your own kiddo Harlem Shake memes. Seriously. AND, in our full and totally balanced discretion, we'll give the best kiddo HS meme we see (probably going to help you out if you "Like" our page too) a little Not-So-SAHM random assortment of goodies from our arts & crafts closet (what? did you think we have corporate sponsors?). It'll be good. We promise lots of glitter.

So get your Harlem Shake on and post it to our Facebook page. We'll decide on a winner next Friday. And if no one submits one, well, we'll just have to put together another.
