(My Take On) 31 Ways Not to Use Your Blog

So this post is brought to you today by Holly and her post 31 Ways Not to Use Your Blog #FridayReflections

I realize it’s kind of funny to have a post like this when I do such a poor job of keeping up with my blog but this made me laugh, and I love Holly.

So here we go:

31) Spread office gossip. Really – don’t we all get enough of this at the water cooler?
I actually agree with this one. I don’t like to spread gossip. I’ll post funny anecdotes about coworkers (or myself) in a heartbeat but it’s not cool to put someone’s dirty laundry out there. I’m also a good listener and pretty damn good at keeping secrets.

30) Talk about your sex life (unless it’s so interesting it brings out the voyeur in your uptight, grandmotherly church secretary).
Oh come on. Real talk, I’ve read my fair share of Letters to Penthouse. I love reading a good, steamy, wild sexscapade as much as the next person. I’m just not going to post anything about myself. But fellow bloggers, feel free to let your freak flag fly!

29) Discuss bodily functions and fluids – particularly their odor, color, texture, and frequency.
I had food poisoning that lasted for a week once. I gave all the details to anyone who would listen (and even those who wouldn’t). People needed to know of my suffering!

28) Call your ex a “whore,” a “slut,” a “tool,” a “jerk-off,” a “@#$%” – oh, you fill in the blank.
Pfft, if the shoe fits …

27) Keep a daily journal of your food intake, household cleaning chores, and other mundane items on your to-do list.
Agreed. Lame!
I mean, yeah I’m going to be doing some cooking and cleaning this weekend but that’s only because I don’t have time during the week. I have about two loads of laundry, then I’m going to try some new recipes …

26) Post quotes from Uncle Al or Aunt Mildred.
My aunts and uncles don’t say anything worth repeating.

25) Post a list of your enemies.
No need. They know who they are. It’s been said that living well or success is the best revenge. To quote Mindy Kaling, “The best revenge is acid in the face. Who will love them now?”

24) Post pictures of the dust bunnies under your bed.
What the hell? That’s not a thing. Right?

23) Describe a recent sexual adventure.
See #30.

22) Compliment your dog.
My dog is awesome. Not only will I compliment my dog, I will post pictures. Many pictures! You WILL like them.

21) Compliment your cat.
Cats are the worst.

20) List 100 things you don’t want anybody to know about you.
I don’t need y’all up in my business.

19) Post your Top 10 Laws I Want to Break Before I Die, then work your way through the list.
I would never! It would be more like “Top 10 Laws I’ve Broken”

18) Insult your cat.
See #21

17) Post Webcam photos of yourself hunched over the computer at night.
Yeah I don’t do the webcam thing. Too many creepers on the interweb.

16) Review the manual that came with your computer or the training video from flight school.
What? Again, this can’t be a thing that people actually do.

15) Describe a class you dropped, and the dead-end job you were not hired for.
That class was boring and hard. AND I WAS VERY QUALIFIED FOR THAT JOB! THEY MADE A HUGE MISTAKE.

14) Describe your snoring.
It’s bad. Have you ever snored so hard that you woke yourself up? That’s me. But it’s all good now. I have a CPAP machine.

13) Rate a public bathroom.
They’re all gross.

12) Excuse away your daily failures.
It’s everyone’s fault but mine!

11) Offer tips on topics you know absolutely nothing about.
Now I don’t actually have any kids, but here are some helpful tips on parenting …

10) Document the growth rate of grass on the front lawn by the number of beers consumed while watching it grow.
Yeah I’m not that kind of southerner.

9) Create a Christmas card letter.
Who still sends Christmas cards?

8) Share a poem of yours.
What? What’s the purpose of having a blog if you can’t express yourself through your writing. I post a prose every now and then. It’s therapeutic.

7) Tell heartwarming pest stories.
That doesn’t make sense.

6) Describe a top-secret project you’re working on.
I’m building a time machine.

5) Post a daily report of your diet failures and lack of progress.
Whenever I have a rough day, I turn to food.

4) You spent how much on soy lattes last month?
What a pretentious drink. They’re bad and if you buy them, you should feel bad.

3) Post a list of songs on your iPod.
But I have such great playlists! Really, my playlists include a wide variety of genres. Name an artist!

2) Photos of your shoes.
I am so not that woman.

1) Rant about politicians.

FUCK TRUMP.

This was fun.

Book It! was awesome!

Pizza for Reading: Pizza Hut’s ‘Book It!’

It’s so funny that Mental Floss put out this article. For the last couple of years, I’ve been asking other people my age if they remember this program. Everyone had said no. It was getting to the point, where I’m wondering if I imagined the whole thing (not really, I’m just being dramatic).

I’ve been reading almost three decades. My grandmother taught me to read when I was four. She retired as an rad tech when I was born, and spent her time teaching adult literacy. I credit her with my becoming a book worm.

Anyway, the article linked above mentions studies that were done about the program. In my opinion, the program was not a negative thing. At least, for me, it wasn’t. I already read all the time. I didn’t spend much time watching TV and there wasn’t much by way of video games. I was either playing outside or reading. As far as I’m concerned, the program hooked me up with pizzas, thereby rewarding me for something I already did everyday.

It was great. I can still remember as clear as day, being six years old, and my parents driving me to Pizza Hut to collect my little pan pizza. I seriously used to put away a great deal of pizza and was as skinny as a twig. I would kill to have that same metabolism now (wistful sigh).

I would love it if I could still score a free pizza for reading a book. Someone needs to talk to Amazon about this.

Dreams vs Reality

My dreams are often so vivid and realistic that I sometimes confuse them with real life. Usually there are bizarre and confusing and disturbing. I’ve told them to friends a few times and they’ve all asked me not to share them anymore.

The dream I had last night was kind of lame but it made me laugh so I’ll share. I was in a room with a few other people. I don’t where we were or what we were doing. All I remember is that we were talking.

In the middle of the conversation, I say “Hey, is anyone else warm? I’m a little warm.” They all say no and go back to talking.

A few minutes later, I interrupt the conversation again. I say “Really? No one else is hot? I’m hot.” Again, everyone says no and go back to talking.

A few minutes later, I interrupt again, “Seriously! It’s hot! I’m sweating profusely!” And I was. No one else was hot or even concerned that I was hot. They want back to talking.

A few minutes later, I lose it. “Damn it! What the hell? It’s freaking hot! My clothes are drenched in sweat! How is no one else affected by this?”

Then I woke up. I was drenched in sweat and the linen was stuck to my face. It turns out, my bedroom was really hot.

Maybe This Is Why I Don’t Watch the Winter Olympics.

My experience in winter sports is limited yet memorable.

When I was a teenager, I went on ski trip with our church’s youth ministry. We drove to a resort in West Virginia. It was beautiful. I had never skied before in my life so I was excited.

The resort offered free ski lessons but I got bored and decided to go off and ski by myself. After all, they made it look so easy on TV.

You have to understand, when I was younger, I was an adrenaline junkie and I thought I was invincible.

So anyway, I went off on my own. I, at least, had the good scene to pick a beginner slope. Well after I took off down the hill, it wasn’t long before I started to pick up sped. I went fast. Then really fast. Then even faster. And pretty soon I was flying down a hill, screaming. I should point out that there were a lot of other people on the slopes. People that saw me fly past them screaming at the top of my lungs.

I didn’t know how to stop since I had bailed on the lessons. In an awkward move, I threw my weight to the side in an attempt to stop. I fell to the ground and slid a few feet before I came to a stop. When I got to my feet, I realized I was missing a ski. I grabbed my poles and with my one ski, I climbed back up the hill. I found my missing ski off to the side in the trees. And that was the end of skiing for me forever.

 

Oh, but wait, there’s more.

On this same trip I decided to go tubing. The set up was pretty cool. They actually had a lift for the tubes that brought us up to the top of a very steep hill. It was a blast. My friends and I did it for hours. On this one particular trek, I decided I want to go downhill even faster. So I decided that while going down the hill, I would pin my arms to the side, keep my legs straight and together. I basically turned my body into a missile. It worked perfectly.

Except for when it was time to stop. You see the problem was, we were in the middle of a valley and I was too fast that I didn’t stop at the bottom of the hill. I ended up flying through the landing area and up the hill opposite the tubing hill. It was a fence that stopped me. One of those orange rubber fences you see in construction zones. I was caught in it, dangling over the side. I watched as my tube went over the other side and land among trees and rocks. I was basically hanging over a cliff. By then, a crowd had gathered. One of the workers, a local yokel, chuckled as he took his time to come rescue me. I remember my friend’s boyfriend yelling at him to move faster and help me. After what seemed like an eternity, the yokel pulled me out of the fence and I walked back down the hill to my friends.

And I went back to tubing.

I was called “Spidergirl” the rest of that trip.

When Idiots Use Email …

I forgot I had saved this.

So here’s the story. A year ago, someone in our company sent an email to ALL EMPLOYEES in this company by accident. There are thousands of people employed with this company.

The email was intended for one person but was sent to every person.

So I saved all the chaos that followed. The ‘reply all’s got so bad that I had to just shut down Lotus Notes for the day.

Each number is a new reply. I have not changed the grammar or wording. I changed the names and nothing else.

Again, these are real. These are all company wide emails. And these were all written by adults most of whom are much older than me.

So enjoy … 🙂

Hello fellow [company name redacted].
I thought I would take advantage of this situation and ask for your help with our mission to Nicaragua in January. My church, SPPC, (Saint Peter Presbyterian Church) is sending over 60 short-term missionaries to Nicaragua on Jan. 24. This is our 15th year. We are doing many things but one of the most important is having Vacation Bible School for 450 very poor children. All the children get a new T-shirt, a big hearty meal, and a brand new pair of school shoes. In Nicaragua, sometimes children are unable to go to school because they do not have the proper shoes. Most of these kids have never ever received a brand new pair of shoes.
For $102 you can provide all of this for 6 children. Won’t you please help us today? Send us a check. Make the check to Saint Peter Presbyterian Church (it is tax deductible) and mail the check to me, Charlie Smith [address redacted]
100% percent of your donation will be used for the children of Nicaragua.
Thanks friends,
All for Him,

 

86. RE: POWERSPORT Policy [policy number redacted]
okay, I have a friend that was one of many many of us that was sent this email in error…she’s very very pregnant, which is scary, so please for the love of safety in our region, please quit replying with history and tempting her to explode

Kids

So, one of my co-workers is expecting her third child some time in the next two weeks. I have an ongoing joke, where I keep trying to buy her baby. You know, she already has two. I have zero. I feel like it’s only fair but whatever. Today, her husband came to pick her up from work, along with her two other kids. Her six year old daughter came into the office.

Me: You know what? You can keep the baby, I’ll take the big one here.

Pregnant co-worker: You can have her. She’s the most expensive one.

Child: No I’m not! I’m only eleventeen hundred dollars. No … eleven dollars hundred. Um … eleven –

Me: I think you mean eleventy.

Child: Eleventy! I’m only eleventy dollars!

Me: Hahahaha!

Pregnant co-worker: *sighs* Really, Mia?

Other co-worker: You are the worst!

Me: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

 

The end. 🙂
