i was all ready to post a thursday thirteen this week…i was thinking worst celebrity dressers…the hardest part of this would be narrowing down the contestants. but, there was laundry to do. and dishes to wash. and blankets to be made. and book launches to miss (oh, yes, i’m not pleased about this one…but i didn’t have a babysitter. my lord, not having a nanny is tough!) and season finales of Friday Night Lights to watch (it’s a freakin’ amazing show. is it bad that i was crying when they won state?). and blankets to be made. and floors to be vacuumed. and rooms to be cleaned.
and haircuts to be surprised by!!!
yes. it’s true! the husband came home last night and surprised me with a brand spankin’ new haircut.
ps. if any of you haven’t been following this story…the husband decided he wanted to grow his hair long (think: a bushy version of Han Solo). even though i tried to stop him. i threatened to leave him. and when that didn’t work…i threatened to stop getting waxed. you know, on my wholahayÃ‚Â (c’mon, it’s better than Nayaim…what’s your name? Nayaim. i know…but what name did you pick? Nayaim. fuckin’ Renee….If you aren’t watching America’s Next Top Model…you really should.)
i’m totally doing the happy dance. and i’m totally calling Argentina today and booking myself a Brazilian. This not waxing thing was just as much a punishment for me as it was for him.
the lovely lovely Di over at Di’s Book Blog has given me a thinking blogger award. She wrote ridiculously nice things about me…which, naturally, makes me love her even more than i already do.
now, my challenge is to nominate bloggers who make me think. most of the blogs i read make me think. There are two bloggers in particular – – – who i’m fairly certain have already been honored with a thinking blogger award – – who make me think. all the time. about things i don’t necessarily like to think about.
about how when i complain about all the things that i can’t handle about my mother….i really should just be thankful that i have her in my life….because this blogger, Mamatulip, doesn’t have hers. her posts are hilarious, but they are also straight from her heart.
about how things happen in life. even to witty, snarky bloggers. Karen over at Troll-Baby has been going through something of late. something serious. something she can’t shake. and i can’t help but think that it could just as easily be me. i’ve been there. i could be there again.
so, i’m officially tagging these two amazing women with the Thinking Blogger Award. mwah! i love you guys!
now, i wanted to leave you with a funny Josh story. we are getting tons of mileage with this one.
he and the husband are sitting on the airplane and he’s crouched himself into this acrobatic position. he’s playing the gameboy (which he has officially stolen from me…and i’m quite peeved about it) and concentrating.
and then he farts.
and then he screams, for all the plane to hear,
“daddy! i just farted in my own face!”
he is such a boy.
