The clouds and the sun and the hail aligned today and Tukey went back to school and I could hear probably three-quarters of the amount I usually can so I ventured out today! Had a really fun blogger lunch with some fabU ladies, including none other than Dawn at Because I Said So, who smacked me every time I said TWIT instead of tweet. Like I give a SHEET!
We were joined by Melisa with one S at Suburban Scrawl, my stalker extraordinaire who called me like three times to see if I was out of the shower yet (You can read HER version here), and Melissa with TWO ESSES, the PROPER way to spell the name for crying out loud (KIDDING MELISA with one S!) at Hope Floats, who, it JUST HIT ME, I THOUGHT FOREVER THAT HER NAME WAS REALLY HOPE! Duh.
And lovely Sarah from Snarkalicious was there, and Shawna, newly published author of Gardening Nekkid. BUY IT HERE. Trust me, you don't have to be nekkid to enjoy gardening.
Shawna Buy Her Nekkid Book!
And my dear friend Lynn, who has not gotten into the total joys of blogging yet, but is strongly considering it. And honest and truly I enjoyed meeting Michelle from, yep, you guessed it, Honest and Truly, who is like a kindred spirit because we both wanted key lime cheesecake for dessert! Plus, she extra extra rocks because she brought me the popcorn ball I so wanted at Halloween. I haven't eaten it yet because yes, I'm going back to Weight Watchers tomorrow!
Melisa with One S, Me with Popcorn ball, Dawn Because She Said So:
Dawn, Buy Her Book Because I Said So (Get it, BECAUSE I SAID TO BUY IT! BWHAHAAHH!)
So we all hung out and chit chatted, and I ate the world's largest salad, you know because I'm going back to Weight Watchers tomorrow, and even left SOME on my plate cuz that's one of the first rules of dieting, or rather, habit changing!
My leftover salad:
All of us, but my friend Lynn had to leave. Something about children needing to be attended to?
We talked about men rubbing our a$$eS (wonder if that'll get me any new readers), and publishing books, and twittering, and my cool shoes I wore especially for Dawn, who if she is a true friend she will post a picture on HER SITE for you to enjoy. Then she was texting me the whole time I was driving home and I was texting back: I'M GONNA DIE! I CAN'T TEXT AND DRIVE! I JUST MISSED MY EXIT!
But really it was fun.
When I returned home, since it was a crappy rainy afternoon, after school, some of us moms took the kids the see Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. Fun flick! I especially love the new hippo dude, Moto Moto, who likes 'em Big & Chunky. My type o' guy.
So, take your kids to see it. Especially if it's a crappy weekend. Or not. Whatever. Tomorrow, we've got basketball. Diva AND Ajers are doing it this winter, and we've also got an indoor soccer game. So, there's no rest for the weary!
And if you really have NOTHING else better to do than sit here looking at my dumbass blog, then why don't you hop on over to Betty and read this fun and insightful stuff:
Victoria Can Keep Her Secrets
While I did not vote for the future president, I do have some nice thoughts about him:
Our Children, Our Future (Dad, don't call me up to yell or anything cuz I got another one coming about Obama's future dog. Yeah. I know.
I Hate Winter Cuz yeah. I do.
OK, so maybe they're not FUN, but it's all I got for now.
Have a great weekend everyone. And in case you haven't started defrosting your turkey yet, you've got exactly 20 days to do so. Yeah, I know. You're welcome. That's what I'm here for.
