Fabulous Friday aka I Don’t Have a Topic

22 May

First, congratulations to Ann H., commenter #22, who will be getting lip plumper in the mail shortly.

Instead of my children drawing from a hat, Ann was selected using a random number generator suggested by my friend Jessi. Who probably planned to program it so SHE would get the lip gloss, but her evil plan failed.

This scientific awesomeness brought to you by random.org.

See, there is the proof of Ann’s winning ways.  Go Ann. Please be sure to sign the waiver before putting on the lip plumper. Also, since the mommy blogosphere is all atwitter about paid posts, paid reviews, product placement, etc., let me clarify that Ulta neither gave me this lip gloss *nor* paid me to write that it made me scream like a waterboarded wallaby.

In fact, no one pays me for the awesomeness that is this blog. Clearly that is wrong, all wrong. Please use the information on the contact page if you would like to help right this awful injustice.

In other news, while my posting has been sparse here this week, I have weighed in at the San Antonio Express-News website at  my blog there. I have been discussing Michael Vick’s return to football and the practice of a local realtor of putting flags up in all the yards in the neighborhood.

One of those situations truly annoys me, and one of those situations is just fine with me. Do I weigh in on the side of the brutal dog-fighting NFL player, or the patriotic home seller? The answer may amaze and infuriate you. Please rush over to tell me of my amazing stupidity at your earliest convenience.
Why? Because everyone else is being so darn polite about it, and I need some psycho commenters so I have something to write about on slow days.
Oh wait, you would like a link to this foolishness?  Here you go.
And now, because I want to share even though it’s not National Carrot Day, I present the wonderful singing carrots. No reason.
You’re welcome.

    don’t even get me started on the whole flag stuff. we have them all over the place here in tourist-hell.
    I love my country and I love the freedom too, but the amount of tourists that come here, leave their trash, park wherever they please, and drive super slow on our roads makes me insane. I just wish they would realize that people live here and need to get around not just be here soley for them. A little respect is all.
    I totally went off eh?

    Oh, please – Don’t talk to me about tourists… I live in the tourist mecca of South America, Central America, Europe, and Canada. I have always firmly believed that tourists in metropolitan areas should get off the streets between the hours of 12:00 noon and 2:00 p.m. so that the locals, who are actually on the clock and have a finite amount of time to eat lunch and run quick errands, could have the sidewalks to themselves and not constantly be dodging phalanxes of clueless tour groups looking for their guides waving colored flags (there are those flags again!), or family groups of 16 obstructing the entire sidewalk by walking side-by-side with arms linked. Go find a beach or a museum or a beach or something. A philosophy that we personally adhere to when we’re the tourists, by the way.

    See? That’s totally going off. 🙂

    Completely! Fabulous!

    I haven’t seen the flag thing down here in TX; they are probably worried someone would show up on their doorstop with a long gauge to let them know how much they “appreciate” disgracing the flag that we are work our ass off to protect!

    Anyhoo, thanks for the pic on the lucky #22~~do you think I should try it??
