I have been having a very stressful and emotional week, and that was even before it became apparent that my stressful and emotional week was exacerbated by the fact that it was coinciding with my monthly stressful and emotional week.  You can imagine the tears and chocolate eating that have been going on around here.  And this is where I make a public service announcement: if you decide to stock up on the new Peppermint Lindor with the intention of passing them out to people in a Santa-like and also join-my-cult-like way, and that stocking up coincides with an emotional and stressful week, you can be assured that you will not pass along any of those Peppermint Lindors but instead you will attempt to consume them all yourself until you resemble Santa in a physical, rather than a metaphorical way. 

That’s how my week was going, so you can imagine my excitement when Kimberly from Make Mommy Go Something Something gave me this:

It’s an award!!  I’ve never received a blog award before!  I feel IRRESISTABLE!  Thanks Kimberly!

It’s Friday, and I’m all T to the G.I.Friday.  I need some laughs, so I stole the idea of “Funny Friday” from my friend Allison over at Bibliomama.  Hey, Allison, you’re irresistable too!  I’m passing that award along to you.

I wish I had the kind of witty, dry, British humour that people tend to associate with intelligence and higher breeding, but unfortunately for me I am Scottish-Norweigan and my sense of humour tends to the low-brow or gutter variety.  Which is to say, this is one of my all-time favourite movie scenes.  That whole movie is filled with many enjoyable moments and lines, such as “We’re going streaking!  Bring your green hat, let’s go!” or “Denver!  The Sunshine State.”  Last weekend I watched You Don’t Mess With The Zohan and, while it wasn’t as funny as one might think a movie about an Israeli commando-turned-hairdresser might be, it did have some good visuals, such as the scene where he goes clubbing wearing cut-off shorts and a silky shirt.  I tried to find that picture but all I found was this:

If you have a dog, you may really appreciate this post on moving with two less-than-gifted dogs.  I really could identify with the dog who magically made his own food.  Good times. 

So, if you share my kind of humour, enjoy those links and have a good laugh this Friday! 


  1. Sorry to hear about your rough week. I haven’t tried the Peppermint Lindor but if they’re good enough to tempt you to eat the whole batch, then maybe I should look for some.

  2. Congrats on your award! I regularly read your blog and totally love it!

  3. Yay Congrats on your award. It’s so pretty! Really girly which is what you need in your testosterone world.

  4. Those mint Lindors are deadly. My fave! Congrats on the award, and I hope next week is way better for you!

  5. DUDE! My kids were in the room when I clicked on that youtube clip! And it was the first time they’ve ever, ever heard the f-word, so if they are traumatized I am blaming you!

    OK — that’s not true. I realize that I say, “What the fuck is the point of this math question?” a little too frequently.

    I can’t wrap my mind around mint chocolate. I just think toothpaste & chocolate should not be combined.

  6. Note to self: stay far away from Peppermint Lindor (things are bad enough already in the Santa-tummy department). I’ve been in survival mode the last week, so I symp-and-emp-a-thize. Glad someone gave you a smile. Oh, and I stole Funny Fridays from Tracy the Mayor of Crazy Town. And I’ve never seen that movie and I was all “what the hell? This isn’t funny. Oh — HA HA HA HA snort.” And that moving with the dogs story is quite possibly the funniest blog post in the history of blog posts.

  7. I totally share your style of humour and you emotional side especially during that ‘special’ time of month.

    I’m so glad that Kimberly was able to brighten your day. It’s interesting how these things tend to happen at just the right time!

  8. Oh yay! I am so glad that it made you smile. You deserve it girl!!
    PS. I think we all eat our weight in yummy goodness.

  9. Congrats on the award! You deserve it. I love your blog.

    Sorry about your stressful week. Hopefully next week will be so much better.

  10. WHat! Peppermint Lindts. I ma in.

    Congrats on your award. I hope this week goes better.
