Friday Foolishness – Slathered Edition

Today’s Music: The Ramones – Psycho Therapy
Note On Today’s Music: It’s got a good beat, and you can dance to it. Thought it would be fun!

The week starts. The week ends. And here we are, again to celebrate the oncoming weekend! But what is there to celebrate? Well, aside from looking forward to the days off, there were some great posts I got to read! Here’s some of what I saw…
Lorrie had the most awkward conversation ever with her son. Sooz collected some hilariously painful observations about sports and education, and According To Mags showed how football players are sissies compared to moms.
And in a huge honor, Cayman Thorn gave me a Reality Blog Award! Seriously, if you don’t know his site, you’re really missing out.

They, and all of you made it a great week to hang out in the sphere.

(One last note, go to Circle of Moms, where they’re still taking votes for their funniest blogs. So go vote for Old Dog New Tits , According to Mags, Lady or Not and UndercoverL!) (And you can vote once a day!)

Come! Come, let us express ourselves through interpretive dance!

Come!Come, let us express ourselves through interpretive dance!

This past week, there was an event. A big event. A delicious even- no wait, that comes later.
This past week, it was the super bowl! It means many things to many people. But we asked what does it mean to you? And apparently it means many different things. Here’s what you said. (As always, my comments fumble along in italics.)

ANYTHING but football!!! buddhakat

You’re born, you die and everything in between is filler. Lou Grant/ lindavernon

Eating junk food I avoid the rest of the year. Bring on the potato chips!

Congratulations to GingerSnaap for this week’s winning answer! And from the offered choices, the most populare was Is that the one where they sweep the ice to make the rock go? So congrats to all you die-hard curling fans too!(I bet you’re all Canadian.)

Pancakes aren't just for breakfast anymore!

Pancakes aren’t just for breakfast anymore!

This week, there was another event. A big event. A delicious event. Yes, February fifth was National Pancake Day!!!
Since I know you all looked forward to it with as much enthusiasm as me, today’s poll asks what you put on top of yours!
So let us know, but do it by 14 Feb, 2359 EST, because that’s when this one closes. (And if you write an “Other” answer, leave a way to identify you, and I’ll link back to you next week.)

And so, to send you into a weekend that I hope is filled with delightful foolishness, I give you these.
First off, I’m just surprised I didn’t post this sooner. (And it has a great end!)

And for all you Downton Abbey fans, this is just for you.

have a great weekend, and a great week to follow, y’all. See you…out there…

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.)

My fingers?
(Hey, if you have to ask…)
Unbaptized Catholic children. damned Uncle Priest! ~Miss R
(Actually, if they were in my nose, they were baptised. Very, very baptised.)
The Green Party… Gray Dawster
(Mucus as political commentary? Eh, why not…)
Sprouty Smelly Farts 😦 Gray Dawster
(No, those make my eyes run.)
Spaghetti on Rye I think? Gray Dawster
(Wouldn’t all that starch make it dryer?)
Taylor Swift’s new single
(That’s being dispensed about four feet down and behind me…)
Brain- melted from all the poll answers ~ (Feel better. That is an order…hold the sauce.) Red.
(Holding the sauce with both hands! And now tipping it to my lips…)
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)
(So I’m guessing cough syrup violates the prime directive?)

(I’d rather have “diffuse apathy”…)

The second-best part of you…? Full Metal Jacket anyone? (UndercoverL)
(If you think I have less-than-the-best parts, you need to stop talking to my exes!)
Brown? ha ha – Hotspur
(Oh Mr. Hotspur, that’s easily your funniest answer ever! Oh, Such wit sir! My goodness, I can’t stop laughing!!!)
your sins x, Becca
(Big as it is, no way my nose is big enough to pass those out!)
The Magic School Bus x, Becca
(Well, schools buses are hotbeds of infection incuba- I mean…kids…)
Tiny aliens. x, Becca
(I know this calls for nose jokes, but I can’t resist Uranus…)
Gobs of pure genius! benzeknees
(So that’s where all my talent went…)
Did that stuff in your nose have little feet? Facts=diagnosis..zannyro
(No, definitely not little…)
I think shit is running out of my nose, but I might have just blown my ass…PMAO
(Then those probably weren’t your ears you were popping…)
Acid. Most definitely acid. – The Bumble Files
(No – the doctor says that burning sensation is something else…)
nutella (SnB)

Hopefully beer,from laughing too hard. GingerWishes
(I’m glad it’s not – I’d be morally obligated to drink what spilled!)

(There is no right end for raisins!!! Bleagh.)
Snacks! (Rutabaga – the person not what came out of your nose)
(I’m pretty sure I’ve sneezed up at least a person so far…)
A rubber hose! Remember? Welcome Back Kotter? No? Nevermind. Grippy
(What if it’s the latest dance moves instead?)

The by-product of raisins. –Emily @ The Waiting
(I don’t want to know how raisins got in me in the first place…)
Captain Tripps (Addie)
(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!
