Friday Foolishness – Sportsmanlike Edition

Today’s Music: Erin McKeown – Blackbirds

Being sick sucks! Going to work sucks too. Geez Guap, is there anything that doesn’t suck? Well yeah, besides living with TMWGITU, reading blogs doesn’t suck! Here’s some of what I saw this week:
Momshieb asked what’s in a name. Old Dog New Tits, According To Mags and Lady or Not are all in the running for a Circle of Moms award! (Just find their names on the Circle of Moms page and vote for all of them!). And Susie Lindau revealed her heart in an unexpected way.
(*Update – UndercoverL is also in the running for Circle of Moms! http://www.circleofmoms.com/blogger/so-i-went-undercover?blogroll_id=89)
Great reads, as were all the posts I got to see this week!
But now, the roving eye of this blog turns back to last week. I was (still am a bit) sick. And as proof, I’ve got a stack of used tissues that would choke a pig.
(If pigs were inclined to chew on used tissues without pausing to swallow first and perhaps wash them down with a nice full bodied red.)
(What? Used tissues are a hearty meal!)
(I mean, or so I’ve heard…)
Anyway, the question was, what was in those tissues. Or more specifically, what the hell was coming out of my nose?!?
Based on your diagnoses, I was happy to learn that Toys R Us had restarted their mail order MD program. Here’s what you said. (As always, my comments are dripping in italics.)

Just plain awesomeness,,your overbrimming with it!
(Being so awesome never felt so crappy! No wait, that’s not right…)
“A strange, new life form, and a new civilisation.” (Star Trek)

(Why doesn’t Stephen King have an awful novel I can mock?!?)
A Petrie dish delight. Just blow w/ Clorox Wipes and you should be set.-Mel
(I prefer afternoon delights…)

Congratulations to Frank for this week’s winning answer! And from the offered choices, the most popular was BRRRAAAAIIIINNNNSSSSS!!!!!!!! (It fits!). So if that’s true, it’s probably the reason if the quality of these polls gets even lower…
After spending way too much time trying to think up a poll this week (my coworkers all thought the glazed look on my face was from working too hard!), I realized that sunday is the Super Bowl! A ready made topic for a lazy guy like me!
I’m hoping to possibly go skiing. But the important question is what will you be doing? That’s the poll folks. So answer as often as you like (before or after the game), but answer before 7 Feb, 2013 at 1159 EST, because that’s when this one closes.

And until next week, I leave you with these.
This first one I’m shamelessly stealing from Lady or Not.

And this is one of the first ads for Glenn Beck’s new amusement park, Libertypendence Park!

That’s all I’ve got. Hope you all have a great week, and I’ll see y’all out there!
