Life is Funny - Cheap is good and free is even better.


I love a good bargain. I really do. But nothing thrills me to the core like free stuff. And free ice cream?! What, have I died and gone to Heaven? Oh yeah. And this week was Ben & Jerry's annual free scoop day. Of course, you would have known that if you were following me on Twitter. And you are following me on Twitter, right? Even my dog is following me on Twitter. You don't want to be left out, do you?


So I went and had my free scoop that afternoon. And again that evening. Don't judge me. It was ice cream. If there was more than one Ben & Jerry's around here I may have had more free ice cream. Like that one time...

Back in the day, I used to live in Southern California. My best friend "R" lived nearby and she's all about the free stuff, just like me. Baskin Robbins usually does some kind of free thing once a year, too, and one year they were doing free Cappuccino Blasts. Mmmm... Coffee and ice cream... And the best part? There were Baskin Robbins all over the place down there!

So R and I hatched a plan.

We mapped out all the Baskin Robbins parlors in the area. There was a 3 hour time window in which they were giving out the free Blasts. We hit those parlors and hit 'em hard! Then we went and made the rounds again. Oh yeah, we were good.

But did you know that they put real coffee in the Cappuccino Blasts? Strong coffee. With lots of caffeine.


I think it was a few days later before I was able to sleep again. There's something to be said for bouncing off the walls, you know. And yes, I'd do it again. Because cheap is good and free is even better.

Are you ready to join in on the fun? Go ahead and write your own Life is Funny post and link it up below. And for a limited time, your link comes with FREE self-satisfaction. You like free stuff, too, don't you?

The return of the TWSS - today, on a very special Twitter Ho-down


You knew the TWSS couldn't be held back forever, right? If you're afraid of the TWSS, feel free to go back and re-read last week's Twitter Ho-down. It's TWSS-free and it's not long enough to make your eyes bleed. This post makes no such promises.

The one-liners

Okay, time to get ready for Girl Scouts. Seems like I should be too old to be saying that. Now where did I put that beret and knee socks?

Padded bras. What God has forgotten, we stuff with cotton. #randomthoughtsfromwendy

"I need a book. A big book. And the loo. Happiness." #sleeptalkingman

Okay, I'm awake. Now what?

Permanent sign on men's room door that's not on women's room door: "Caution - Floors may be wet." Um, ew. #randomthoughtsfromwendy

My 3 yo took a bath w/my 10 yr old. I heard crying. "Mom, she asked Jesus in her heart!" Me: "Why is she crying?" Her: "I baptized her." (RT @WeareTHATfamily )

Why can't designers put shoulder pads where they'd do more good? #randomthoughtsfromwendy

"There's only one thing that comes as close as being as fantastic as me, and that's my reflection. All hail the beautiful mirror. Wow." #sleeptalkingman

Had my free Ben & Jerry's ice cream this evening. And this afternoon. Don't judge me.

Wow. Compared to this, me going to the bus stop in my jammies is getting dressed up.


I want to thank my friend Sherri for sending me this breaking headline: // BWAHAHAHAHA!!! (RT @katdish)


I would argue that 42% of life's problems can be cured by watching a cat wrestle a baby. (RT @prodigaljohn)

So funny! RT @trendytykes haha :

We've all been talking about your paranoia. (RT @aedison)

Brace yourself for a shock: I'm actually writing a blog post right now. I know. I can hardly believe it myself.

Okay, the kiddo just won't stay in bed. Time to get out the velcro sheets.

A little bit longer ones

sarahmsalter @SBeeCreations I pull for ACC teams and underdogs... And sometimes, those coincide. :-P

weightwhat @sarahmsalter Underdog is good. And that Sweet Polly Purebread is a babe.

beckfromfrogandtoad This red wine tastes like moldy grapejuice strained through a pair of underpants.

weightwhat @beckfromfrogandtoad Um, how would you know what that tastes like?

@racegearcom88 oh, yes. I see. Not a good problem to have

weightwhat @SBeeCreations TWSS

makeadiff21 @CandySteele Way cool. Thanks so much. Perhaps I'll find something to put on my hands to keep it from getting all over the place.

weightwhat @makeadiff21 TWSS

stretchmarkmama 3YO tried to hypnotize me today. "You aw getting sweepy, vewwy sweepy. You will bark wike a cow..."

weightwhat @stretchmarkmama So, did it work?

stretchmarkmama @weightwhat Well, I'm *eating* like a cow, so part of it must have worked.

katdish Whenever I get a new follower who is following 10 people or less, I feel a great sense of responsibility towards them to guide them.

weightwhat @katdish Yes, you must be very careful when you warp the unwarped.

coffeewithmarty @sarahmsalter TWSS!

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty Look! Marty's TWSSing! It's like it was just yesterday that we were explaining what that meant. Oh, wait. It was.

weightwhat Mornin' folks.

katdish @weightwhat Good Morning princess

weightwhat @katdish Finally, a proper response! *snort*

The ones that are even longer

weightwhat I thought my ears were burning.

Helenatrandom @weightwhat Hey-ey! I was just looking for you!

weightwhat @Helenatrandom And here I am!

sarahmsalter @weightwhat WOO HOO!

weightwhat @sarahmsalter I know, it's thrilling for you to be here with me. *snort*

sarahmsalter @weightwhat Yes and now that I'm done with my magazine article, entertain me.

weightwhat @sarahmsalter I'd do armpit farts for you, but I never learned how. But it's the thought that counts, right?

And the ‘why don’t you just post the whole conversation’ ones

Helenatrandom @billycoffey Hey Billy! Your post about your undies left me speechless!

katdish @Helenatrandom Yes, Helen. And I'm sure that's what @billycoffey calls them - "undies".

Helenatrandom @katdish Wha? At least I caught myself before typing "panties". (Hubby Bob hates it when I refer universally to all undies as "panties")

katdish @Helenatrandom man panties. Snort!

Helenatrandom @katdish Yeah. Somehow men get insulted when you call their undies panties... Men are so weird...

katdish @Helenatrandom What about mannie-undie-panties?

Helenatrandom @katdish Bob is just glad I remember to call them undies now instead of panties... He however, refers to them as "underwear".

weightwhat @Helenatrandom My husband gets all bent out of shape when I call his underwear 'big boy panties.' Go figure.

sarahmsalter @makeadiff21 Yes, ma'am! :o) Did you notice I have a new cheerleader? (@coffeewithmarty)

weightwhat @sarahmsalter Frankly, I don't know that @coffeewithmarty has the knees to pull of a cheerleader skirt.

Helenatrandom @weightwhat And I don't know that he doesn't.... You know... I don't know either way....

weightwhat @Helenatrandom Yeah, but I'm guessing those legs of his have never seen a razor...

Helenatrandom @weightwhat We don't KNOW that though, do we? We are ASSUMING that he doesn't shave his legs. You know what they say about the word assume

weightwhat @Helenatrandom Should we ask him and solve the mystery?

coffeewithmarty @sarahmsalter @makeadiff21 @weightwhat u better believe it! I have the knees. ;)

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty So you'll be putting on the cheerleader skirt then? And @Helenatrandom and I were wondering about the hairiness factor.

coffeewithmarty @weightwhat @Helenatrandom how about I just be the mascot. I simply refuse to shave my legs.

Helenatrandom @coffeewithmarty Knowing the both of us as you do... Who do you REALLY think is tweeting about your legs, me or @weightwhat....

coffeewithmarty @Helenatrandom and if I had to call it on who was talking about my legs, it would be @weightwhat

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty Hey now!

coffeewithmarty Today, I will be changing my profile picture to a mugshot. "Smart glasses, sunglasses, or no glasses" is the question.

coffeewithmarty @katdish Here's the deal. I'm going to be trying a variety of different ones today. We could go with a risque one.

Helenatrandom @coffeewithmarty Don't be a manho. My husband won't be happy with me following manhos. Not even on the twitter....

katdish @Helenatrandom Or a male bimbo, or a mimbo

coffeewithmarty @Helenatrandom oh, I wouldn't... trust me. It was a joke. I refuse to fall to the levels of manho, bimbo, or mimbo @katdish

weightwhat @Helenatrandom Oh c'mon, Helen! It's been such a long time since we've had a manho around. Can't we have just a little manho-ing?

Helenatrandom @weightwhat Don't you think @coffeewithmarty is a little young for us to be manpimping....

weightwhat @Helenatrandom Train 'em young. That's what I always say. Except for when I'm saying TWSS, but that's a different story.

coffeewithmarty @Helenatrandom I'm gonna be good, regardless what @weightwhat wants me to be. :)

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty Oh, c'mon Marty. You were doing so well yesteday when you started showing some leg. Even if is was in a cheerleading skirt.

coffeewithmarty @weightwhat cheerleading is good. whoring is bad. Do I really need to explain this?

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty Oh, please do. I'm anxiously awaiting your explanation!

coffeewithmarty @weightwhat Although BOTH make people happy, one is carnal happiness and one is simply, "Aren't those knees beautiful."

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty Yeah. You really need to watch out for those cheerleaders. They're goin' straight to hell with those carnal ways of theirs.

coffeewithmarty Right now, I want a hug from Big Mike.

SBeeCreations @coffeewithmarty You need a hug in general, or will only one from Big Mike do?

coffeewithmarty @makeadiff21 Haha... no, I don't love hugs but that guy is just hilariously big!

Helenatrandom @coffeewithmarty If I admitted that so am I, would you want a hug from me?

coffeewithmarty @SBeeCreations only big Mike. Sorry.

SBeeCreations @coffeewithmarty Fine. I was going to offer you one, but since you don't need it, I'll save it for someone else

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty Oh, sure. Way to hurt a pregnant woman's feelings Marty. Poor @SBeeCreations was just trying to be nice to you and all...

Helenatrandom @coffeewithmarty That's really not fair! I'm enormous, too!

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty And now you've gone and hurt @Helenatrandom's feelings, too. Way to go, Marty. Why don't you just go kick a puppy now?

SBeeCreations @weightwhat This is true. Thanks for standing up for me. And after I supported him in the whole Blocking @katdish scandal...

weightwhat @SBeeCreations No problem. Perhaps @coffeewithmarty needs a good public shunning to get him to change his evil ways. SHUN! SHUN! SHUN!

coffeewithmarty @weightwhat what?! I told @SBeeCreations that I wanted a hug from her. Why am I being shunned?

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty No, you said, "@SBeeCreations only big Mike. Sorry." SHUN! SHUN! SHUN!

coffeewithmarty OK. Here's the new deal. Due to popular demand, I will be hugging all my tweeps except @weightwhat. :D

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty Oh, like they'd want your cooties now. Hmph!

coffeewithmarty @weightwhat @makeadiff21 this is about my profile pic still? Blame @katdish!

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty No, the cooties are all your own doing. The whole sweat thing just adds insult to injury.

coffeewithmarty @weightwhat @sarahmsalter I don't have cooties. I'm the guy that brushes his teeth during the day and takes multiple showers

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty So you're obsessive-compulsive then?

coffeewithmarty @weightwhat ya... just a bit. Although I haven't combed my hair yet today... hmmm.. tell me, Dr. What am I?

weightwhat @coffeewithmarty An obsessive-compulsive with really short arms?

Okay, you can blink now. But if this wasn't enough twittering for you, head on over to Fellowship of the Traveling Smarty Pants and see what else you can find. Has anyone ever told you you're a glutton for punishment?

Looking for inspiration


Hi. My name is Wendy and I've been a blog slacker lately. (Hi Wendy.) And while I admit that I have this problem, it doesn't actually bring me to the first step to recovery. What does? Going through photos I've saved. Oh, yeah.

So I found the above picture and it reminded me of an old post. As an update to that post, my daughter is much better at chewing gum now and has turned into a gum fiend. There go my chances of seeing a bubble butt.

Mostly though, the picture reminded me of being pregnant with my daughter. Why, one may ask? Well, for those of you who are not 'in the know,' exercise balls are great for your back and for helping your hips to spread when you're pregnant. I know. Who would want their hips to spread? Well, I'll tell you what - if you're about to push out something the size of a watermelon, you want those puppies to spread. Anyway, back to my story. I really wanted to get an exercise ball, but they weren't as easy to find as they are these days.

My one criteria? I didn't want a white one.

But white was the only color I could find.

Why wouldn't I want a white ball? Because it was enough being pregnant and I didn't want to look like I was trying to hatch a giant egg. So there you have it. Kinda changes the way you look at that picture now, doesn't it?

Life is Funny - Girl Scout Cookies aren't


As some of you may know, I've been living in a Girl Scout Cookie nightmare for a while now. I'm the troop leader and the cookie manager for my daughter's Brownie troop. And I can't be taught. Last year, after being cookie manager for the first time, I said I'd never do it again. Oddly enough, I'm saying the same thing this year. Clearly I have a hole in the head. So, while I'm still not to the point where I'm finding it funny, I'll share my pain with you. You know, so you can point and laugh. Stupid cookies.

First, a few comics.




One would think that having more than 100 cases of cookies in their living room would be a fun thing, but no. It's not fun at all. And repeatedly loading and unloading cookies into your minivan to go to booth sales? Also not fun. You know what else is really unpleasant? Running out of people's favorite cookie flavors and having to face their wrath when they don't get what they want. (Go ahead and click on the link. I can't get the video to embed for some reason. I blame the cookies.)

And did you know that Girl Scout troops can't return the cookies they've ordered if they order too many boxes? Yeah, the troop has to buy them. At one point, we had about 250 boxes too many. We've gotten it down to somewhere around 70 boxes now. So if you get a knock on your door, know that it will be me. I'm digging out my old Girl Scout uniform and going door to door. And it ain't gonna be pretty.


Now feel free to join in and tell us why your Life is Funny. C'mon. You know it is. And besides, after living through cookie hell, I need to be able to point and laugh at someone, too.

Why grandpa slept on the couch

How did Saturday come around again so quickly? Lucky for me, I've got a few favorites saved over at youtube for when Saturdays sneak up on me like this. So without further ado, on to the Saturday Silliness!

If you're needing more silliness, feel free to head over to Kathy's blog and take a look at her carnival. You like silliness, right?

Girl Scout Cookies are bad for your twitter


My poor twitter account has been suffering from the effects of Girl Scout Cookies. Such a sad story. Not even a TWSS to be seen. Crazy, huh? Here's hoping twitter can get back to its old self now that cookie season is over.

The one-liners

An airplane killed a jogger while making an emergency landing on a South Carolina beach. Which is why I don't jog. (RT @badbanana )

Is it my imagination, or is twitter having issues?

Where is that *(&@*$% happy place?! And who keeps moving it?!

The ones from my dog, Gidget (@CrazyGidgetDog)

Been days since I've had a good butt drag on the carpet. Time to seize the moment! Carpe carpetum!

A little bit longer ones

weightwhat I'm very angry with McDonalds. How could they run out of Shamrock Shakes 4 days before St. Pat's Day? Inconceivable!

iaminigomontoya @weightwhat You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

jewda4 Don't you wish overalls for grown ups came back into style, including the standard one strap done up?

weightwhat @jewda4 Oh, they're still in style. As long as you're at Walmart.


The ones that are even longer

katdish Dear @billycoffey: When you write a post about Sponge Bob boxer shorts, spam comments for ED & viagra increase ten-fold Sincerely, Me

weightwhat @katdish *snort!*

katdish @weightwhat Seriously - I just deleted 15 spam comments this morning.

weightwhat @katdish So, do you think the boxer shorts in general cause the need for ED and Viagra meds, or is it SpongeBob himself?

CandySteele @Nick_theGeek Sorry your head's hurting. Ever packed it in ice? Yes, I'm serious. #worksforme

Nick_theGeek @CandySteele do all of your medical suggestions have to sound like ways the mafia deals with a snitch?

weightwhat @Nick_theGeek Wait 'til she brings out the leeches.

Nick_theGeek @weightwhat I think leeches might be preferable to decapitation and packing my head in the cooler.

weightwhat @Nick_theGeek Maybe, maybe not. Just how bad is your headache?

And the ‘why don’t you just post the whole conversation’ ones

br8kthru @weightwhat How's it going? I have an overwhelming urge to call you 'spanky' but don't know why...

weightwhat @br8kthru That's fine. I'll be calling you 'Alfalfa.'

br8kthru @weightwhat Oh come on, I'm Buckwheat if I'm anyone- don't you see the resemblance?

weightwhat @br8kthru I'm sorry, but you're just not cool enough to be Buckwheat.

br8kthru @weightwhat That's low- you call my coolness into question? On what grounds?

weightwhat @br8kthru That you even have to ask takes away even more coolness points. I may have to demote you to Porky or Froggy.

br8kthru @weightwhat Let's just skip to the end and you can call me 'petey' -I know that's where we're headed.

weightwhat @br8kthru Woof.

So there you have it. My sad little twitter post. Sorry I couldn't make your eyeballs bleed this week. Maybe next week will be better. If you're still craving more, feel free to head over to Fellowship of the Traveling Smarty Pants to see if anyone else did a post. Just don't hold your breath. Lately they've all been pretty flaky, too.

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Wrong, but funny

Who's ready for some Saturday Silliness?

Oh. Not you? Well then, you go away. The rest of us want a chuckle. Go on. Nothing here for you to see.

Some people just hate fun.

Now feel free to head over to Kathy's blog, Me & My Memes, for more silliness. Yes, she moved her silliness. She's sneaky that way.

Friday, March 12, 2010

Why yes, I did do a Twitter Ho-down post


Yes, I'm finally getting my Twitter Ho-down post done. No, I didn't do one last week. Hey, I have good excuses reasons. Plenty of them. But I won't list them here because you've got too much reading ahead of you as it is. Now get to it! Read like the wind!

The one-liners

I'm over this whole being awake thing.

Mmm... Matzo ball soup. It only sounds naughty.

Guys, check this out. Look at a package of Keebler cookies. See those elves? Now look closer. Yup. Those photos are faked. (RT @badbanana)

Gotta go feed the kiddo. I don't like the way she's looking at me and holding that fork.

"Harassment in the Workplace seminar postponed until next week, after Bob gets back from vacation." #cruellyspecificofficeposter (RT @badbanana)

Food left in the fridge over the weekend will be thrown away or more likely eaten by that weird cleaning lady. #cruellyspecificofficeposter (RT @badbanana)

A little bit longer ones

BeNicePrenatal Daily pregnancy affirmation: I will stand up for myself.

weightwhat @BeNicePrenatal @SBeeCreations Hey, will someone please come over here and help me up so I can stand up for myself? Stupid low sofa.

weightwhat Okay, what have I missed?

racegearcom88 @weightwhat we missed you I know that. ;).

weightwhat @racegearcom88 Of course you did, dear. Without me around there's just no joy in your world is there? That's why I'm Sweetness and Light™.

stretchmarkmama Several of my friends are doing the Couch to 5K. I'm doing the Couch to Recliner.

weightwhat @stretchmarkmama For the love of Gumby, don't strain yourself!

The ones that are even longer

br8kthru @sarahmsalter a family member is getting married & I get to perform the ceremony :)

weightwhat @br8kthru Was the sweater vest the clincher?

br8kthru @weightwhat how'd you know? It is a holy & sanctified sweater vest.

weightwhat @br8kthru I knew it was because when I made my toast this morning, it came out with the shape of a sweater vest on it. O, holy sweater vest!

weightwhat @br8kthru Yeah, I'll be selling the holy sweater vest toast on ebay later.

br8kthru @weightwhat I'm in a bit of a daze this morning for some reason- need to snap out of it...

weightwhat @br8kthru Want me to slap you a few times? I'd do that for you.

br8kthru @weightwhat you are such a good friend. Most would stop short of physical violence, but not you... & that's why you're special.

Helenatrandom @br8kthru That she is... I would merely throw a bucket of cold water in your face, but @weightwhat is willing to go that extra mile...

weightwhat Mornin' folks!

br8kthru @weightwhat Yes it is! And your point would be... :)

weightwhat @br8kthru My point is, it's morning and someone had better bring me some coffee. NOW!

br8kthru @weightwhat I think there's a 9 AM flight but I wouldn't get to you until around noon- might want to make alternate arrangements.

weightwhat @br8kthru Darn your lack of teleportation skills!

And the ‘why don’t you just post the whole conversation’ ones

ela33ine @weightwhat My teeth are clenched doing the baby talk thing and my 10yr old wants to know what the heck I'm doing???

weightwhat @ela33ine Did you give an answer? Or did you say M.Y.O.B. like a proper misfit?

ela33ine @weightwhat I said "Get your buns back to bed"...In my best baby voice.

ela33ine Okay I lied, I may of said butt.

weightwhat @ela33ine I'm shocked and stunned at such language!

weightwhat @ela33ine Okay I lied. It's just not a day unless I've said butt.

ela33ine @weightwhat I may of said ass the other day and my 14yr old heard.

weightwhat @ela33ine But that's okay, because you were clearly talking about your little donkey, Pepe, right?

weightwhat Morning all.

weightwhat Was that a tumbleweed?

marni71 @weightwhat I know, right? They aren't talking to me either. Should we be worried they've been raptured out?

weightwhat @marni71 This group? Nah. ;o)

weightwhat @marni71 Perhaps our powers of invisibility are stronger than we first suspected.

weightwhat Hi Wendy! How are you? Me? Oh, I'm just dandy. And yourself? Peachy keen! Lovely weather we're having isn't it? Oh yes, it's just divine.

sarahmsalter @weightwhat Good morning!

weightwhat @sarahmsalter Oh sure. Now you talk to me.

sarahmsalter @weightwhat Sorry, I didn't mean to ignore you. I'm addressing 875 envelopes. Wanna help?

weightwhat @sarahmsalter By hand? TWSS.

sarahmsalter @weightwhat Nah. I'm sticking labels on 'em.

weightwhat @sarahmsalter Then what are you bellyachin' about?

marni71 @weightwhat No Wendy, don't go help @sarahmsalter! I'm keying in 2000 names to a database. I need you more than Sarah does.

weightwhat @marni71 What's that? Okay, I'm coming Mom! Oh, sorry Marni. My mom is calling me. Can't help you with that keying. Bummer.

SBeeCreations @weightwhat But I thought you were going to help me renew the insurance policies here...

weightwhat @SBeeCreations What? *khshkshsk* You're breaking up. *skshshkksh* I can't hear you.*kskshshsk*

sarahmsalter @weightwhat LOL! You're in rare form today!

weightwhat @sarahmsalter Avoidance is one of my especially useful gifts.

makeadiff21 @weightwhat Thanks, Wendy. How are ya today?

weightwhat @makeadiff21 Not the best today. Too many things weighing on my mind. I'd like to hibernate until it's over. And I'm a size 8.

Helenatrandom @weightwhat If I hibernated until I was a size 8, my name would be changed to Rip Van Helen...

Helenatrandom @makeadiff21 "Van Helen"... has a vice ring to it though, doesn't it?

weightwhat @Helenatrandom Yes. Yes it does. Can you do some big hair and sing?

Helenatrandom @weightwhat @makeadiff21 Well, I think I can sing. I don't know if anyone else agrees with me....

br8kthru @Helenatrandom RE: Van Helen -you could start a tribute band...

Helenatrandom @br8kthru An all girl tribute band...

weightwhat @Helenatrandom I'd like to be in your all girl tribute band, but I don't have the big hair and rockin' bod I used to have.

weightwhat @Helenatrandom Maybe I could wear a hair piece and a girdle, just like the real band does now, huh?

Helenatrandom @weightwhat I think we could both work that look. Can we come up with a fancy French name for a girdle, though?

weightwhat @Helenatrandom Okay. How do you say "the hoist, squeeze, pull and groan" in French?

Helenatrandom @br8kthru Oh, and I flubbed Cookie Monster's twitter handle. It's @stcookie (which I keep reading as "Saint Cookie")

br8kthru @Helenatrandom then what does the 'st' stand for?

weightwhat @br8kthru @Helenatrandom The 'st' stands for Steve Tucker, the guy whose hand is cleverly hidden inside Cookie Monster. #totallymakingitup

weightwhat @br8kthru @Helenatrandom It's really amazing that Steve Tucker can even control Cookie Monster, what with him missing 3 fingers. #stilllying

weightwhat @br8kthru @Helenatrandom It was a horrible accident at the Oreo bakery that took his fingers. Poor fingerless Steve. #areyoubuyingthis

weightwhat @br8kthru @Helenatrandom His therapist said it would be good for him to do Cookie Monster as a way to work through it all. #thatstheticket

weightwhat @br8kthru @Helenatrandom Although he's done well being around other cookies, Oreos still give him the sweats. #pilingitonthick

Helenatrandom @weightwhat And yet, he constantly says, and I quote "Me eat cookies. Awwn Nom nom nom."

weightwhat @Helenatrandom I know! He's so strong! *sniff* Truly in inspiration to all of us! #ifitgetsanydeeperiwillneedasnorkel

So, did you make it all the way through? Are you still alive to tell about it? Good job! Now go ahead and leave a comment to show you've been here. After that you can feel free to go scrub your eyeballs. You're welcome.

Life is Funny - The 1st Anniversary Post


This week marks the 1st anniversary of this blog carnival. Cue the confetti! Yes, it's all very exciting.

Except that at this point, I still have nothing to write about. I've been living a Girl Scout Cookie nightmare over the weekend and it just hasn't been pretty. Or funny. So I'll be putting on my thinking cap (which looks suspiciously like a tin foil hat) to come up with something for today's post. Feel free to check back. Or just stay and sit a spell. You never know when something amusing might happen.

Oh, and if you're one of those on-the-ball people (Yes, you Ginny) and you have a post to add, sign up with Mr. Linky below. Yeah, he's the one down there looking at me mockingly for not having something to post. Hey! I'm workin' on it!
