Friday Fragments



Watch out for the random thoughts flying... Friday Fragments is back with a vengence! I'm kicking fat asses and taking names... Join in with Mrs. 4444 at Half Past Kissing Time.

***Monday is the kickoff of...

Plan ahead- there will be a Mr.Linky to link all participating posts together. The only rules: be honest, get healthy and bring us along for the ride.

*** I use 'comment moderation'. I know people hate it. My computer is a magnet for scum sucking viruses. That being said, the way I check my comments is by mannually going in and scrolling down them. If you leave a comment on an old post- shoot me an e-mail- hey dumb-ass, I left you a comment- otherwise I will never find it.

*** I changed my 'blogroll' ------->>>> If I missed you, let me know, hey dumb-ass, you missed me!

*** Do you Twitter? Twitter is a social networking site. The way I understand it, it's mostly people with blogs or a product to sell. It took me a long time to catch on to it, but know I ramble far too much on it. You have 140 characters to say "what you're doing" (very Facebook-esque- AGAIN, another reason why Facebook wishes it were a blog!)... I don't like doing it on Facebook. I think it's so dorky when I go to someone's profile and it says


Sarah is cooking dinner.
Michael is cold.
Becky is putting her kids to bed.


YAWN! Becky is putting ME to bed!

People with blogs have a much better sense of humor. Twitter is much more entertaining.

***To the woman in the waiting room during my son's orthodontist visit... I only wanted the receptionist to give me a receipt of the thousands of dollars that I spent there in 2008 so I could do my taxes.

That was not an invitation to tell me how much it sucks that you "are never able to deduct your medical on your taxes because it never ends up being enough." You know what- we pay $640 a month for insurance- so yeah, I make it, I can deduct it, and I don't feel sorry for you... wanna know why?

Because you go on to tell me how you paid off your house and painted your house key red and boxed it as a gift to your husband for Christmas (that's so sweet I think I just threw up in my mouth!) Wow, I'm really aching that you don't get an extra $200 on your tax return after putting out over $8000 a year for medical expenses, like I do!!!

As if, I didn't feel bad enough, you went on to tell me that you had 2 kids in college and pay cash- you really emphasized that you pay cash- good for you! My kids will be lucky to get grants to go to community college at this pace, but so. happy. for. you.

I thought I had escaped your bragging about your finances, little did I know, you made your last payment on your son's braces to the cashier on the way out! The receptionists threw confetti at your beady little head and a little mariachi band came out and played you a congratulatory song- OH AREN'T YOU THE JOLLY GOOD FELLOW! (The confetti and band really only happened in my head.)

For your information, we have 4 kids, one income and BUTTLOADS (that's the exact amount) of debt! So next time, while gloating about your good fortune, remember you might just be telling someone that's poor, totally jealous of you and completely unstable- watch your back, sister!

Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

I am ok with facebook...I just dont get Twitter...where's the feedback...where's the love...

And I can't believe you didn't find something totally obnoxious to tell that lady...

Ronda's Rants said...

Oh God I hate it when that happens! :)

Deb said...

i hope you slashed her tires!

i may have to eat my way through the weekend, just so everyone else who plays KMFBA can feel good about themselves. i'm nice that way. you don't have to thank me.

Under the Influence said...

Did you wait for her in the parking lot and throw rocks at her head? That's much better than confetti!

Complicated Mama said...

UUUghhhh I hate "THOSE" people.

I have a "Frienemy" like that... its VERY annoying.

"I have this this and Im getting that.. but O! we're so poor.. we even use coupons!"
:::GASP!:: o no! Coupons?!?

Thanks for the blog roll love :)

I commented back on my site not sure you saw it but I made my button/header graphics at www.piknic.com (it is highly addictive)

Someone on Twitter recommended it

michelle said...

I think I sat next to her at teh pediatrician's office last month? I. so. despise. her.

Solidarity.

Piece o' Coconut Cake said...

I like the name and the poster-cute! I've decided to do the Master Cleanse. Iknow, I know so gimmicky but I feel that I have to do SOMETHING to jump start this diet. My GF lent me the book. I'll let you know what it says...

jill jill bo bill said...

Don't you want to act like you are deaf and be able avoid those conversations?

Allison said...

Hey dumbass! I commented on two of your old blogs last night. Jon and Kate (barf) and another one. Does this count or do I need to email you?

Jen @ Mommay's Mayhem said...

I've been such a twitter slacker lately!

♥georgie♥ said...

LOL...I love your FF!!!!
I just cant do twitter and I am sorry i kidnapped you on FB yesterday dont hate me

Mariah said...

Becky is putting me to sleep too.

That wanker of a woman in the waiting room just has no idea what it's like to be without cash. BEOTCH!!

Mrs4444 said...

Wow. Glad you got to unload all of that! Twitter on, my friend! :)

Lee the MWOB Queen said...

Damn straight you better have me on your blogroll cause MWOB is some serious good luck for you lady! Go check it out!! :-)

And medical bills and insurance? Holy shit don't get me started!

And Facebook? can't do it I'm scared. And I'm trying to Twitter but I'm scared of that too. I'm never quite sure when to jump in and when I do, no one talks to me. :-)

But all is good - it's Friday!

Abby said...

I'm still learning the Twitter thing. I am not quite sure what to "tweet" about. And I never remember to get on Facebook. Happy Friday!

Dorsey said...

Well said!! Well said! These are the people that get under my skin, the money grows on trees braggy people!! ugh!

Mary Moore said...

Find out where that bitch lives. I'll tar and feather her, and paint her windows black.

Some people have no brains.

Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

I like Facebook but can't really do twitter! Twitter is just a bit overdoing it to me.

I could only imagine the kind of thoughts going through your head when that lady was going on and on.

I am ready for the weight challenge. kinda, how bout after tomorrow when I splurge after dinner at our favorite restaurant :)

why is my word verification wings? are they rubbing buffalo wings in my face? ugh

Eudea-Mamia said...

Ah Facebook - I'm not digging it either.

And that lady, I totally would have come up with something clever to say, like 20 minutes after I pulled out of the parking lot.

I hate that.

Me thinks she brags a little too much. Things can't be THAT good.

Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

I love twitter although sometimes I feel funny announcing things about myself to the world like that...I guess it is just a more condensed version of me announcing things about myself to the world on my blog though.

Brenda said...

I cannot stand "those" types of people. Totally wished you would have gone off on her in person - although I hope the blog rant helped!

I am dreading my daughter's first ortho appt. We have it scheduled, and are still trying to figure out how we're paying for it!?

the RaMbLeR said...

Ugh...those 'people' make me barf in my mouth too! Why DO we hold it in? Blah, oh excuse me not sure where that barf on your high dollar suit came from!

So Not Mom-a-licious said...

For the love of everything holy. At what age, do people finally learn to shut their pie-hole? Did she really think you were going to pull a gold pedestal out of your farking ass and set her on it?! WTF? seriously? And what kind of response was she expecting to get from you? "OMG, your graciousness, how do you do it? how do you live such a cash full life?" Hopefully, she makes it by sucking dirty, smelly, hairy balls for a living. At least that might make you feel a little better.
Which brings me to my big fat ass and this contest. I am trying to muster up the courage to post a picture of all of my lumpy-liciousness. And then post another one on a couple of months showing my half lumpy-liciousness. But I haven't gotten to the first pic yet. Still trying to grow a pair for it. Toodles!
P.S. No, I'm not drunk. No alcohol on this diet!

Deb said...

It always amazes me when complete strangers start talking about their personal finances like that. Obviously she is insecure or she wouldn't be spouting off like that.

I guess if you had knocked her kid's teeth out she would have had to start the dental work all over again. Then again, you'd be in jail.

Miss Yvonne said...

My sister is like that biotch sometimes. My husband is out of work and we've got renters in our house so we can pay our mortgage....she tells my yesterday she's taking a cooking class with her boyfriend and then they're going to some museums. Then she asks me what I'm doing this weekend. Oh you know...cleaning my house and NOT SPENDING MONEY BECAUSE WE ARE BROKE. But thanks for reminding that you've got loads of cash and can do whatever you want.

Haaate!

Marilyn said...

AaaHa!
Your the one who told Annie to wax her rug!!!

Love your blog.

Leslie said...

Soooo, I'm acting like I've know you forever, right??? Is that the moral to the story??

Maggie May said...

your blog cracks me up! love your header too.

Threeboys1mommy said...

Twitter rawks!

I would have found some sharp dental tool and cut that chick... well not really, I'm not confrontational at all but I would have daydreamed about it and laughed.

Aubrey said...

Hey! That's the amount of debt we are in too! Small world...LOL

Haven't jumped on the Twitter scene yet but if/when I do, YOU'LL be one of the first I subscribe too. I always love what you have to say!

Soxy Deb said...

THis Friday's Fragments sounded a lot like an Eff You Friday, but I'm glad you got it all out of your system.
Now...
Debra is making dinner.

Manic Mom said...

Facebook sucks, but Tena YOU ROCK!!!!!

Megryansmom said...

Good morning can I still get in on this huge butt thing? I need the motivation.
