The Manic Rap

Please don't cry,
please don't frown,
but Manic Mom's
going out of town.

Where she's going, nobody knows,
what's she doing, do you suppose?
Is she drinking, sleeping, or what?
Is she exercising off her butt?

Sunshine, books and sleep when she wants
Away from this keyboard and its fonts.
She'll be back, don't ya worry,
And she'll be in less of a fury.

Cuz relaxing is what she's gonna do
without the Diva, Ajers and Tukey too,
They'll be missed you can bet,
but this is a trip she won't regret.

To a new state where she's never been
And no it ain't Michigan.
Somewhere out toward the West
Is the place where she will rest.

Recharged, relaxed, that's what she'll be,
Maybe she'll write books two and three?
Who the heck knows, why should ya care?
But when she gets back, stories she'll share.

In the meantime, check out the links
To the people who I think don't stinks*.
They're over there, on your right.
Now wish me good luck, on my flight!

Peace out fellow bloggers, readers and lurkers!

Okay, before I go though, how the hell do I get my profile back up to the top of the start of my blog. Now it's all the way down, down, down at the bottom.

Shit.

Please help.

Okay, it's fine if I view it in firefox, but not when I view it through internet explorer. I hate technology.

Shit.

Bravo on the poem! Have a great vacation!

Christina said...

Enjoy your trip! :)

Karitown said...

Aha, so I'm not the only one who was wondering where your profile and links went. Never thought to check at the bottom. And sorry I have no clue how to fix it. You're talking to the computer idiot over here.

Great poem by the way. Have a blast on vacation without the kids. A necessity in my book.

Swishy said...

You're the best white girl rapper EVER!

You've never been there? You'll like it. And then when you get back you can get ready to party with Swishy!!!!!

Manic Mom said...

Peace out guys! See ya Sunday!

MM, doesn't rap having spitting? Have fun wherever you are going.

As for the tech issues - I wish you much success with that too. Sometimes it comes back on its own.

I'm so jealous! Can I go too? I'm cool, I'm fun, and I need to get away! If you won't take me will you at least add me to your sidebar?

Manic,
My profile keeps going down to the bottom of the page like yours .. it started when I was trying to add the 5minutesformom logo .. if someone can help you - please let me know ...
Ok, if you are coming out west let me know where you will be .. maybe we will be close!
But seriously - what will I have to look forward to everyday? Whaaaaa. I will miss you and your humor. But I hope you have fun and get the relaxation that you deserve - and I will be soooooooooooooooooooooo jealous of.

Did you republish your blog after you made any changes to the template? Try this.

Eileen said...

sigh. We'll miss you. Go on, go have fun. Don't think about all of us back here. By ourselves.

I'm so jealous! Sounds like a great vacation for you. I hope you have a great time!

Love the poem!

Manic Mom said...

Trish, if I get to the point where I'm doing book signings, I'll rap, AND give away full size candy bars!

eatmisery said...

Enjoy your trip. You deserve it.

Word G.

Come to California. We'll drink many appletinis and hunt down every last Milky Way Midnight in the state.

I hope you have fun and enjoy your time off. I know, the kids won't be there so what's not to enjoy?

princessr9 said...

I so just gave myself carpal tunnel syndrome scrolling alllllllll the way down to the bottom to see if I was there, and I'm not. *sniffs* So um, yeah when you get back from your fabulous vacation, could you add me? I'm gonna go shuffle off and kick some dirt.

I feel it is only fair to warn you that I turn into a dork at midnight.

David Amulet said...

Bust a rhyme, yo. You've got a future in the business! We'll look forward to your happy return.

I saw we start a new blog called "Manic Mom Sightings". Sort of in the same vein as seeing Elvis at Burger King. Readers who recognize her out on vacation, or at Starbucks can write in and we will put it up on the map. That or she can wear a GPS tag and we can track her move.

Hope you have a good rest. I just took a trip myself after being in grad school for 2 years in between finishing and starting a new job. I hope you come backwithdrawal.

Lori said...

I know where she iiissss, ha ha ha ha ha. I know the state anyways.

Emma Kaufmann said...
