Old School Blogging: We’re NOT Going Streaking

old schoolWe’re Going Streaking!!!!!
(No, actually we’re not…)

Does anyone else automatically think of this whenever they hear the words “old school”?  I wanted to share the video, but keeping with the whole “clean” blog policy I couldn’t share Will Ferrell’s bare behind on here… I did share a link if you’re curious and don’t know what the heck I’m talking about, but remember, caution on Will’s nudity!

So WHY am I sharing a picture from the movie Old School?  Recently Jen Kehl tagged me in this wicked cool old school blogging post-I thought it would be fun.  I haven’t made any lists in a while, and it isn’t asking me to come up with random facts about me (thank goodness, because I think I’m fresh out!)

Weekly Wrap-Up: The Hurry Up and Get It Done So I Can Travel Edition

Funny-Happy-Saturday-GraphicI have company at the moment (my teenaged nephew has come up for a few days), and am trying to get packed to leave for a few days… so this is short and sweet.  Here’s what I did this last week.

Monday  Character Assassination Carousel: Bears on Wheels  Ever dislike a book that your kids LOVE!  Hence the Character Assassination Carousel, where folks take down books that they love to not love.  I had my turn this week.

Tuesday  Twisted Mixtape Tuesday Bathtub Time Machine:  The 70s!  My favorite tunes from the decade.

Wednesday  Wordless Wednesday: Imagination, Terry Cloth Style  My kids+towels=good imaginative fun.

Thursday  Theme Thursday:  I Wanna Rock (But Sadly Have Had Few Opportunities To Do So)  I’ve been to very few concerts in my day because I’m not cool.

Friday June 2013 Fly on the Wall: The Neck Boob Edition  Do you know what neck boobs are?  Apparently I have them…

Neck boobs.  You saw them here first.

Things I Loved This Week

Interview Your Kids, Part I and Interview Your Kids, Part IIParenting, Illustrated With Crappy Pictures My friend Jenn, the Theme Thursday Jenn, was crappified for the whole world to see on part I.  I love it when parents interview kids-their answers are so funny!  I did the interview in part II, however my kids’ answers weren’t all that funny, except that The Princess said the meaning of life was flowers.  She should remind Evil Genius of that when he wants to do something nice for me…

Oh, and this happened on Twitter.  I about peed my pants.

Crappy Pictures

I think it’s one of the best things ever-Crappy Pictures is following me! (And Keith is pretty cool too, I don’t want him to feel left out…)

Best and Most Disturbing Search Terms

Ursula Sea Witch Cupcakes I’m not sure what would be scarier, these or the zombie batman cupcakes from last week’s search terms!

Monte Python have fun storming the castle  1) MonTY Python 2) That’s from The Princess Bride, people!

Buy fake fireplace without fire  It’s easier to carry that way because you won’t burn your hands.

blogs about peeing pants  Because that’s apparently ALL my blog is about.

cats washing machine Are the cats washing the machine or is it a machine that washes cats?

Eating chocolate makes me have to poop  Are you sure you’re eating chocolate and not chocolate ex-lax?  Just sayin…

Next Week

So yes it’s true- I’m going to be out of town.  Not a vacation per se, just a few days away from my home visiting my family, and a lot of being in the car.  Evil Genius will be left to his own devices.  I’m  a little bit scared about that.  I bet he eats all the cheese.  I also be he’ll enjoy the quiet!

It was all a bit last minute, and because of that I didn’t really get a chance to get much lined up.  I can say with certainty that I have a post all ready to go for Twisted Mixtape Tuesday.  If I find a picture to use for Wednesday you may see a Wordless Wednesday.  Thursday I shall be reblogging what may be the longest post I have ever written for the theme of road trips.  I’m pretty sure two people read it the last time, so it will be almost brand new.  Kind of like something you’d find at a consignment shop-we’ll call it a “gently read post”.

So here’s hoping your weekend is all you hoped it would be, and have a great next week!  I’m hoping to be back with a brand new post on Friday!

I'll be hearing this a million times...

I Want YOU! (But Not in a Gross Weird Way)

Not this kind of deal, though you could do it from the comfort of your bedroom...

Have I got a deal for you.  Not this kind of deal, though you could do it from the comfort of your own bedroom…

Hey you.  Yes, you.  You there who blogs.  Got ideas going through your head?  Do you want to expose some new people to your writing?  Did you accidentally find this blog just now and wonder if I am some sort of stalker/insane/creepy person?

For those who answered yes to the first two questions above, have I got a deal for you!

You see, I’m going on vacation.  I’m not physically GOING anywhere.  With the sub job and life in general I’m wanting to take some time off.  The week of March 18th-22nd is Spring Break here, and it just may very well kill me.  I will not be posting my own blog posts that week.  Instead I want to offer up an opportunity to all of you.  I’m looking for a few people to guest blog that week.  I’ve done one guest post myself, but personally have never had a guest blogger before.  Unfortunately, I can’t offer any sort of compensation for this (what you think they PAY me to do this? HA HA HA HA)  I would be willing to send you a sucker through the mail, maybe even a gold star.  🙂

Let me know if you are interested, and we’ll set something up.  You can blog about whatever you wish, as long as it is funny and is relatively clean-I say this because as a Mom I want this blog to be one that kids can read over your shoulder and not spark any uncomfortable discussions.  After all, my son is the one who at age four saw an email from a friend and wanted to know what the f word meant!

So think about it.  You know where to find me!  Coming up this next week I’ll be blogging about my return to the gym, petrified poop, parenting, and the next installment of the Secret Subject Swap.  In addition, my husband is about to embark on a long project at work that is so involved  we may never see him again.  It’s going to be a busy week!

And just in case you don’t know what I’m referring to, here is the clip that the picture refers to.  Maybe I take back the whole being clean thing after all…
