20SB Vlog Day Redux, starring Ben Boudreau

October 14, 2009

When the ever-lovely Ben put out a call for video blog requests, I had a single thought: Ben is ALMOST as cute as me, and people with French-sounding names are far superior to the rest of you Anglo minions, so he is clearly the sole choice and most qualified to play Renee in a tv movie of my life. And by “tv movie of my life,” I mean just the most important moment of my life, my 20sb video blog. Yes, it trumps my wedding. (But not Jim and Pam’s wedding. EPIC.)
Ahem. Where were we?

Oh. So I ask Ben if he would kindly recreate my 20sb video so I can see it like you guys did, as an outsider, not as someone who was concerned about the cleanliness of her kitchen or the nastiness of her hair. (Ben, your hair looks wonderful, btw. And cute storage boxes, too!) Also, Ben is better than me because he doesn’t overuse run on sentences like I have in this post. Canadian English > American English.

So here it is, in all its glory, Ben’s Recreation of the Un-Official 20SB Vlog. (Have I let this go to my head? I mean, it was my 15 minutes of internet fame, can’t we drag it out? Can’t I relive it one.more.time?)

    regardless, it’s brilliant.

    Both are adorable! And I agree, Canadian English > American English (though I am a quarter-French Canadian, so biased? Yes.).

    I think I just fell in love with Ben Boudreau (whom I have been secretly blog stalking for some time. haha).

    I’m loving that no one picked up on the fact that I tried to draw a Peace sign but it came out as a Mercedes logo.

    The thing I like the most is that he has the same crates on his shelves from Target that I do! Ok, well, that’s not what I love the most. I love the song & both of you for being so freakin’ cute in your videos. Seriously. Loves it.

    While it’s true that no one can top the cuteness of Renée’s original vlog, this came pretty darn close. Kudos!

    Ben is so cute. You are so cute. Why is everyone on 20sb so damn cute? Must be because we are awesome. The end.
