MORE FROM THE FUNNIEST KID ON THE PLANET
The other day my 3 year-old niece Bebe told my brother-in-law when he wouldn't get her more juice that when she got her paycheck, she was going to go the store and get herself some juice. When asked how she was going to get there, she said she was going to drive her Barbie jeep.
When her big sister Yaya was 4, she told her parents she wanted a cheeseburger, to which they said, “Okay,” meaning they’d go get her one in a while. When they couldn’t find her in the house a few minutes later, they started scouring the neighborhood. My brother-in-law found her about 6 houses away, walking up the road. He put her in the truck to take her back home. Once back at the house they asked her where she was walking. She said she was going to get a cheeseburger at the little family restaurant that they often go to, which is about 2 miles away and on a major road. They asked her if she was going to walk all the way there. She said, “I was going to walk and run and skip.”
IS THIS SOME KIND OF COSMIC WAY OF TELLING ME I NEED TO GO ON A DIET?
I’ve been hormonally and emotionally eating this week. A lot of eating, is what I’m saying. I went to the store Monday afternoon to pick up a soda. When the guy rang up my soda (or 2 Dr. Peppers, a box of Gobstoppers, a bag of Mini Oreos, and a Baby Ruth), it came to $6.66. Yesterday morning I stopped to get a breakfast biscuit (or 2 biscuits and a gigantic sweet tea. The eating is out of control the last few days, I’m telling ya!). Guess what the total was? Yeah. $6.66. Hmmm… Today I ate a granola bar for breakfast, a Lean Cuisine lunch, and a bowl of soup for dinner. I GET IT, OKAY??
FUNNY THINGS I HEARD ON THE RADIO OR TV THIS WEEK
- A perk for guys picking up women at Walmart…you already know a woman's children’s names because of her tattoos. (Chris Kelly, 2 Guys Named Chris radio show)
- Lifetime Shower – When you’ve heard or experienced something especially disturbing, you may feel the need to take a “Lifetime shower”, which is the act of collapsing in a shower, rocking back and forth with your knees pulled up to your chest, while you have an ugly cry. (Deidre James, 2 Guys Named Chris radio show)
- The way I feel very often: Caught between a rock and a crazy place. (Leonard, The Big Bang Theory)
MUTUAL OF OMAHA
Official sponsor of the aha moment. Really? I didn’t know that you could be the official sponsor of something like that. And, if you could, didn’t Oprah start the aha moment thing, like, 8 years ago?
BECAUSE I'M A MAGPIE SCROUNGING BLOG THINGS FROM EVERYONE ELSE
Jenners did this celebrity look alike thing from My Heritage site. You upload a picture, then it analyzes your face and gives you the celebrities you most look like. I tried six different pictures to see if I had any crossovers. One picture got almost exclusively male returns ranging from Matt LeBlanc to Andy Kaufman to Hugh Jackman (no, Bookkitten, I don’t look like Hugh Jackman). A few women showed up several times: Kristin Kreuk (Lana Lang on Smallville) showed up with 4 pictures. Isabella Rossellini and Geena Davis showed up for 3 pictures. And, Cate Blanchett was on 2 lists. Here are the results using the picture from the blog (the fetching one). Personally, I don’t think I look like any of these women, although I sure wish I did!
