look at me, quite the little joiner (what movie? anyone? free candy to the first person who guesses.)

but seriously, look at me. not only am i using a hula hoop.. AT WORK…but somehow i agreed to be a team captain for our second annual third floor bbq and games jamboree (still probably not the official name) and yes, of course, there was a first. and i did get me a fancy fake tattoo again (only this time it’s on the inside of my wrist. and i cannot fucking get it off. begone damn butterfly!!)

(also..now i really want a REAL tattoo. for serious)

(also…not a butterfly)

(i’m thinking a peach – because i’m a Georgia peach. get it? – on my pelvic bone. whattayathink? haha…or i could just get me a giant beer bottle, since that would work for the midwest AND the canadian in me. ahem.)

also, does anyone use mySpace?

the only thing i’ve ever really used it for was checking out new bands. because, seriously, for music, myspace is AWESOME. but for someone like me? what exactly do i need yet another social network for?? i was just wondering if anyone uses it. i went into my account yesterday for the first time, since, um, like 2006. anyone? anyone? bueller?

Isabella’s birthday isn’t until August 15th. but on that day we are mailing her pacis all to Yo Gabba Gabba and Elijah Wood. (this was the suggestion of a blogger friend…scifidad, maybe? i really actually can’t remember, my brain is fried from the apocalyptic golf-ball sized hailstorm we had yesterday while the sun was shining. or maybe it’s from all the numa numa)

of course we are sending it to yo gabba gabba…because there’s a party in her tummy!!

so yummy! so yummy!

anyway…so, she is losing patience and wants her party NOW.

so, we agreed to let her have a birthday party today. (she’s thinking..hahah, suckers!) so, we’ve rounded up all the nannies to bring over all her best friends to come over for lunch and cake (the husband actually went out this morning and bought a cake and had them draw a PACIFIER on it!) and a paci-send-off.

WHO’S THE SUCKER NOW, iSABELLA? we totally tricked you into giving up your pacis 2 months early. hahah, sucker!

  1. LOL, I hope it goes well. Does she expect presents?

    You really have to go with the moment don’t you…lol

  4. Haha! You outsmarted her!

    I’m on MySpace, but I made my page private. I only signed up because I saw someone linking to my blog from there and wanted to see what they said.

    I’m the same with Facebook. I do not understand them at all.

  5. I will have to remember sending the pacis off. What a great idea. Would have saved me months of tantrums with the other two.

    Will get it right with my third.

    Or perhaps… my fourth.

  6. I’m on MySpace. That should be embarrassing to admit, but, eh, it is what it is.

    Also, I have two tattoos and want another in a year or so. I want it on my wrist, actually.

    One of my tattoos is a butterfly—it is meaning!—and it’s on my foot and OH MY LORD it hurt. It huuuuurt. I can still feel the burning.

  10. *raises hand*

    I have both MySpace and Facebook… both are private; I can’t remember who inticed me over to Facebook (probably Flock, my browser), but I also mostly use the MYSpace for bands.

    Facebook, to me, is jsut better – and MySpace is beginning to copy, what with ahving applications and such. You are also much less likely to find someone faking their age just to join – no nine year olds there!

    MySpace became private because I didn’t want random people adding me? It was happening and I wasn’t ready to give it up just yet…

  12. I am not on MySpace, but have Facebook (as you know)…and am a bad Facebook friend…

    Congrats on the early party, but sorry you have to endure Yo Gabba Gabba. Have you ever seen the “My Talent” clip where the dude farts with his hands? I was laughing so hard that I cried.

  13. Hahahahaha, you trickster, you!

    I love the shot of you hula hooping.

    And MySpace? Another site I don’t quite “get” (though I agree it’s good for musicians). It’s just so jumbled and disorganized it really stresses me out every time I log on! (Shameless Confession: I only joined back a couple years ago when SVV and I were parting ways and he was on MySpace and not Facebook, so I needed to stalk, ahem MONITOR, his activity of course…)

    so as a bestie, i gotta wish you good luck tonight and for your sake, I hope the party tires her out. hmmm…we could always have a girls’ night out tonight that starts at say, 6, and ends when Bella’s asleep :)

  17. I deleted my Myspace acct about 9 months ago…I didn’t see the point in keeping it and it stressed me out to have ONE MORE PLACE to visit.

  22. Am I the only one that noticed how insanely toned your arms are in that hula hoop pic? Color me jealous! :0P

    Brilliant on the paci party…pure genius! I don’t know how your brain can still function with all that Yo Gabba Gabba exposure though!

    I have a MySpace, mainly because I’m nosey and I wanted to check out all the people I went to school with. My page is private though, so they can’t snoop on me. lol And I just signed up on Facebook less than a month ago. I like it much better…just not sure I quite “get” the hype yet though.

  23. What does that freaky ass show that reminds me of a bad trip have to do with her pacifiers?

  24. Will they accept thumbs? I’ll send a thumb to include with the pacifiers. Don’t worry, my daughter has another one just in case.

  25. I want the free candy!

    I’m getting a tattoo next month for my birthday.
    A moon and a star on my left leg above my ankle and a sun on my right leg also above my ankle.

    I’m new to all the Facebook, Twitter and Myspace stuff….my 3 blogs are enough but I’m sure I’ll get hooked on those in time. Hugs!

  26. Oh my gosh – I cannot stop laughing over Yo Gabba Gabba. The first time we saw the show – my husband and I were so disturbed by the party in the tummy song. Now we randomly bust out singing it in the middle of the day!

    Good luck with the pacis!

    Oh yes,and I still have a myspace account – but a few months ago I got a facebook account and like it much better.

  29. Man, I haven’t hoolahooped in ages!

    I’ve never used MySpace. I’m on Facebook … that’s enough to keep me busy as it is.

  30. We have that same shirt! I think– Old Navy, right? :-D It’s so cute to see it on another familiar girl! Hee.

    I have a MySpace, but I only use it to see pictures of my VA friends; since they haven’t fully hopped on the Flickr bandwagon yet.

  32. lol! Your whole post made me laugh! I can’t get over the 2 months early birthday party! I wish I would have thought of it.

    Although, speaking of myspace, my son says he’s 15 on his which he SURELY IS NOT (He’s 14)…

    I have one as well, http://www.myspace.com/pdxdiva

    Isn’t that how it goes? I THINK.

    I have to go watch that video again…

    And? You ROCK the hoop!

  34. I have a MySpace account just cause I am a joiner, by I kinda hate MySpace. Too glittery!!! I always say MySpace is the Hooters of the internet and Facebook is the Applebee’s.
