Random Tuesday Thoughts: As much as I love Joe's, they're not the reason my daughter is named Jo.

... seriously, it's not even spelled the same.


FedEx just dropped off a letter.. containing the details of my next job..

Agent Sylvia,

Thanks for the satisfactory job you did on the Ivan Stveklavastich assignment. We were unaware that a person's navel could be used in that fashion, nice work. We are requesting your services once more.

Please meet our representative at 3rd and Grand at approximately 1:23am on April 1. Be sure to wear something pink, bring a bag of marshmallows and have your machete at the ready.

The Russian Government

P.S. If your husband wants to tag along again, please remind him to wear a hair net on his face. It's a good thing we found that stray whisker before someone else did.

I don't know what they have planned for me, but if I don't show up for work blog much in the coming weeks, please contact my husband. I hope this isn't another April Fool's joke, my pinkie finger still twitches everyday at noon for five and a half minutes from last year's.

Actually, it was just a gift card. From Joe's Crab Shack, for being an awesomefull customer and blogging about what a fantabulous restaurant they are. Keep your eye balls peeled and be watching for an upcoming giveaway from them! (I like my version better.. and don't lie, I know you did too.) Oh, and the gift card? It says: 'Crabs, the gift that keeps on giving.' Because Joe's is awesome.

Do you like my new layout? I think it's pretty rad. Look up in that corner over there.. no, the other one.. yeah, see that? I have navigation now! So you know.. I don't get lost and stuff. Oh, and for you too.. so you don't get lost. You're welcome. Click around, get to know the place, make yourself at home.. Here, have some coffee.

My daughter is clumsy. She's really freaking cute.. but dang, she is clumsy. She has a habit of somersaulting down the stairs. It's not pretty. She also trips on her own feet, bumps her head on doorknobs, and runs into my butt several times a day.. Of course, that last one isn't totally her fault.. I mean, my butt is pretty big these days.

I'm working on it.

Shut up.

Seriously. Quit laughing, it wasn't that funny.

I forgot that March had 31 days. Not only was I waiting for my archive to shrink back up when I stayed up past midnight last night.. but we woke up this morning thinking it was April Fool's Day. I had a great idea for a joke to add into my post today.. but then we realized it was only March 31st. I was sad. I may have even cried a little.

Last night, I got the camera out to show Aman (he'd prefer I refer to him as Aman instead of J, so as to reduce possible confusion) some awesome blackmail photos and we found that Aidan had made a 17min video of.. nothing. He likes to set up the camera in random places when he gets up in the morning (he's up before anyone else most days) and record himself playing.. it's... odd.

The other night, while we were working on my site layout, we also discovered that Aidan had added $1,150.37 worth of pirate crap to Aman's Scamazon.. I mean Amazon.. shoppping cart. Awesome. One of those moments we were glad he's not so good with the reading yet.

Aidan is awesome.

So Aman is my husband.. in case you all hadn't figured that out yet. Apparently, on Twitter, our PDA isn't enough to give it away. My relatively new friend Niel was a tad bit confused. Especially since Aman had apparently proposed that they be each other's wingmen at BlogHer and made no mention of a 'wife'. Heh. I let Niel know that he should watch out.. as Aman was more likely to encourage him to hit on me and then later actually hit him. He's a sneaky one, that man of mine.

A couple of weeks ago, we were at Target. I know, right? We shop too much. Anyway.. we were on our way out and walking past the make-up department. There was an end-cap display of some new schmancy mascara that was just clever enough to catch the attention of even my 7yo.. Guess which ones he couldn't resist touching..

Today, the wind is blowing like a $2 hooker. How's your weather?
Go check out Keely. She's rad.. and random. C-ya!

I'm gonna go watch my new MxPx DVD with my kids, who are almost all (except Torrin, who's waiting for his) wearing their new MxPx threads. Enjoy your day.. here's some real coffee.

Only Aman said...


Oh yeah - and um I also offered to take neil to a pool with cement shoes... i heard they let you swim well ;-)

My wife is rad! If you love crabs then you will love her next give away (yeah - unfortunately its real crabs - like the ones in the ocean).

My clumsy child chalenges your clumsy child to a clumsy child dance off. Last one to fall and trip over their feet and bust their lip open wins.

Oh, and my sister just bought my little nephew a new board and needs to pimp it out like you did for your son's.

Joe's Crab Shack is so much nicer than other restaurants! I eat at BK all the time and I just get the shaft.

steenky bee said...

The layout? Awesome. The hooker comment? One of the best I've seen. Your daughter? Precious. This comment? Annoying. Sorry 'bout that.

Twenty Four At Heart said...

Are you setting up a 3 way with Neil for BlogHer? I'm confused.

Bex said...

Casey said...

It was windy like that here on Sunday, I thought our new swingset was going to fly away.

I hope the Russians go easy on you guys.

Giddy said...

Ballin. I didn't know you drank your coffee black? Hardcore, girlie!


Mom of two kids, three four-legged figures, and of one ex husband hahaha

Keely said...

How did you know I wanted coffee?

Also, the gift card slogan is AWESOME. I wish we had a Joe's Crab Shack here. If I win your giveaway can I come stay with you while I go there?

Kelly said...

They closed our Joe's! No Joe's in MN.... Sad really.

Mama Dawg said...
