Friday Fragments

Do people think you are borderline schizophrenic, but you totally have your shit together, like me and just have a hard time staying on point because you really don't talk to too many adults in the course of a week's time and you have a lot to get off of you chest? Link up and join in where they embrace random thoughts (and probably mental disorders, too)- Friday Fragments with Mrs.4444- she's totally sane, I'm fairly certain!

***Sunday's puke fest tried its best to get to me. I was a little under the weather Wednesday, not enough to throw up, but enough to not be able to eat- or even have ANY desire to. Instead, I got the body aches and tested the dosage limits of Aleve in a 24 hour period (FYI- 14 is OK.)

***I was actually on board with the whole sick thing- and was considering putting it in the permanent rotation of diet secrets (no throwing up, no appetite, just load up on Aleve every time I felt my fingers)- UNTIL- I got my appetite back today. I may or may not have bought a chocolate cake at the grocery store that my kids can't have- just sayin'.

***My sister called me several times today and yesterday to see how I was doing. How sweet, right- no, we're not. I thought that was really weird since she's kind of a bitch like me and really couldn't care less-UNTIL-she reminded me that I agreed to watch her daughter tomorrow. She is an adorably busy little terrorist who has a recent adoration for Sharpies. My sister has found her- the last three days straight- drawing on herself with them. I'm convinced she's doing it for the fumes, but whatever. In preparation of her arrival, I have confiscated all writing utensils, aerosol containers and glue bottles. She only has one VERY loud volume and is into everything... Since my recent yearning for another baby, I thought it was important I watch her, yep, that should put me in my place!

*** Could Dick Cheney have resembled Mr. Potter from It's a Wonderful Life during the inauguration any MORE IF HE TRIED????



*** I suck at rules and contests... yada yada yada... BUT, my luck is a changin'...I won something- A gift card to Trader Joes! Wanna know how I did it- I worked my ass off- that's how! I jumped off of a roof and had to land on an exercise trampoline and I was the closest without going over. It's really the most exertion I've had since I've taken down my Christmas decorations- shut up- that was a lot of work! Go pay Lee a visit-she's a very cool West Coaster and has easy rules to follow (all I had to do was leave a comment for God's sake!) and she has pics of me being an adrenaline junkie.

***My parenthesis are becoming more pronounced and it's pissing me off. You know, the lines that surround your mouth that look just like parenthesis (if you don't know- you must leave or tell me your secret!) Someone has clicked the bold button on them and they are really driving me crazy.

( _____ )

My mouth looks something like this right now!

Target to the rescue... this is what I bought...


I will keep you upraised of the progress!

OMG Cheney totally looked like Mr. Potter. All these years I've been thinking of Bush and Cheney as Pinky and the Brain (Bush was definitely not the Brain), but I think I might like the Mr. Potter comparison better.

OMG I was cracking up at your spin on your sister/niece thing! Hysterical!!! Sorry you are feeling better and have to watch her.(?) Okay, Denise I HAVE to know what he calls them....TELL US!!!!

"You're worth more dead than alive!" Mr. Potter is a dick!

Jen said...

Did you watch The Daily Show? John Stewart's take on Cheney was so funny. If you didn't see it, google it.

I've already gained back the weight I dropped during my stomach bug diet. Booo! :(

Have a great weekend!

Deb said...

i hate it when i get my appetite back. and it always comes back : (

ok you have to keep us updated on your parentheses! mine are cavernous and it is time to address them.

Parenthesis respond GREAT to Restylane injections. Wallets however, do not.

I saw that leap onto the trampoline. You looked awesome - look out 2012 Trampoline Olympians!

Annie said...

Cheney reference=priceless! So right!

Goodluck with Sharpie kid!

I left you an award at my place!

Soxy Deb said...

Good luck with the adorably busy little terrorist, sounds like you'll need it.

"may or may not have bought a chocolate cake at the grocery store that my kids can't have- just sayin'."

Can I confess something? I have chocolate hidden in my underwear drawer. I know my son's not going in there...and it's Dove Chocolate!

I feel you...I do!!

Mandy said...

LOL...I love the Cheney picture.

Mrs4444 said...

The Cheney crack; hilarious, and very true. Glad you're feeling better!! ;)

Eudea-Mamia said...

Yeah, choke on your Trader Joes purchase, baby.

Did I type that outloud?

(from one of the other three semi-finalists)

I mean - Congratulations! I hear they sell wine.

Jenni Jiggety said...

I am glad you escaped the pukies!!!

Lee the MWOB Queen said...

Oh Tena - yeah I'm the cool West Coaster who has your gift card sitting in my purse waiting to MAIL!! Holy shit!! I was gonna do it today and then I started reading blogs and now I'm obsessed with my very own parentheses and I'm freaked out!! Please let me know if that Target stuff works...

P.S. Gift card will be mailed tomorrow along with some California sunshine! :-)

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Hope you're feeling better! I had to laugh at your niece..the Sharpie addict. She and my Baby Boo could wreak havoc together. It would be one loud party for the two of them!!

I left a little something for you on my webpage. Have fun with the sharpie princess!

Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...
