Post in which every other sentence is a parenthesis. (Can't help it.)

I'm one of those people who secretly laugh when I see husbands and wives communicating via Facebook. (I also laugh at bumper stickers like the one I saw today that said, "I heart Nevernudes."  That has nothing to do with this post and if you didn't watch Arrested Development you won't get that.)

One time I read a wife telling her husband to "Please get off FB and give the kids a bath."  I laughed for a full five minutes over that one.  I also laugh when I see people (most of you I know and love) wishing your spouse (or child who doesn't actually have a Facebook account because they are two years old and can't read yet) happy birthdays, anniversaries or other such things publicly.  Yes.  I do laugh.  I'm ashamed.  I don't judge though, I just think it's funny/cute/funny.  And I laugh because I can't help myself. 

So today, I'm turning the tables on my own self, because when you point the finger, you have three pointing back at yourself. (I'm pointing all three at myself.) 


And in light of that, I'd like to publicly declare that my love for Adrain is not a stale marshmallow, contrary to what I said two nights ago when he asked me why I never give him massages. (This all began because Nurse Nicki got a massage table for a wedding present.)  That also made me laugh.  Just so we're clear.  Now, I feel like I've become one of you. (You know who you are.)  It's good to belong...  Please don't kick me out of the publicly-declaring-things club because I've laughed at you in the past.  I promise not to laugh at you ever again.  (I mean, I'm a blogger for heaven's sake.  I publicly declare nonsense with the best of them.  All the time!)

And because we are publicly declaring weird things... (or at least I am) this is what I swept up today (aka the grossest photo I've ever posted) because I own a 38 pound black monster named Lucy. (It's like a small rabbit.) I just needed to share that.  It felt appropriate somehow. 

Also.  I might still laugh at your "Reagan/Dukakis" bumper sticker.  (I'm sorry, I just feel it's best that I'm completely honest with you.)

The End.

  4. I always laugh(and roll my eyes) when bloggers have their husband write a post about how wonderful and amazing their wife is!

  5. Just wanted you to know that I have made your "special" watermelon goodness drinks several times now and they are soooo delicious. I have it down to a fine science so I can make a single serving at a time. I also add one packet of splenda instead of the powdered sugar and it works great. Thanks Sasha!

  9. I know a couple who SHARE their Facebook. So if the one is writing she will write, Anna - then her missal. If her husband is writing he starts off with John - Now that is just gut wrenchingly funny every single time. She also spends a lot of time telling everyone how buff and amazing her husband is and how awesomely sexy. I know have known this couple personally for 25 years and they are always fighting. I guess the best part is making up on FB.

  11. Hey girl! Here's the downside of getting your posts by e-mail...I rarely comment anymore and yet you crack me up day after day (unless you're not being funny - then I don't laugh). The Facebook thing had me going - what's up with the people that tell Facebook good night every night?? I could go on... Anyway, just had to pop by and comment and tell you HI and I just saw you were on Pinterest - YAY! Gonna check that bad boy out. Have a good day ~ ♥

  12. totally agree with you on facebook. While I find it to be a way to keep in touch with family that lives far away, I also find it absolutely ridiculous when I read people are posting stuff like I am eating a twinkie or I am going to sleep. It's like their whole life is FB.
    LOL, don't get me going on bumper stickers.
    So glad you are posting some randomness. : ) Oh, and that dustpan full of dog hair made me laugh as I just vaccumed the other day and we had the same amount in our Dyson and we have a Dachsund. Eeek!
    Sending you and email. I have a question for ya.

  13. I totally laugh at those people on FB too...but I am guilty of it as well ;) Mostly I laugh when it's a full conversation and you can tell they are both in the house, but communicating via FB not in person. Makes me giggle ;)

  14. Funny. I am guilty of communicating with my hubby via facebook. I know it's dorky, but at the moment it was convenient and it saved me a trip upstairs. ;-)

  16. About the last photo...I have three cats, two of which are long hair. I sweep daily and vacuum 2x a week. I am right there with you.

  17. youre so stinkin cute.. and funny. you just are so much like the kind of girls that i love in my life. thanks for being a joy and so fun to visit.
    on another note. i do not facebook. i dont get it quite honestly. i tried it for about a week a couple different times. but honestly i dont want to be friends with someone just because we are in the same yearbook. it all is just so impersonal. one day my teenage son updated his profile with literally a period and people, adults included "liked it". thankfully my son even saw the ridiculousness of it all. ill just choose to stay in touch by ph and e mail and yes.. snail mail.
    thanks for the daily dose.

  18. Haha~
    Please!! That little itty bitty teeny tiny bit of dog hair...PLEASE! ;)
    We get that much up at least twice a day in One room. Big Black Lab. We said we'd NEVER have dogs inside...we have two. Things you do for your kids, right?
