what's WITH that!?

What's with...
  1. the baby on the box o Costco baby wipes? It's an otherwise cute baby with a creepy cabdriver toupee. Gross. You know I'm right.
  2. the recent spike in African-investment spam I've been getting? "May I humbly introduce myself to your good self? I recognized associating with you will derive a huge success there, ten percentage."
  3. people thinking Seriously, so blessed! is written by a guy. Seriously?? Come on!
  4. harems in hip-hop videos? Just watched part of a documentary on that and it rocked, er, hip-hopped me. Skanktastic. One more reason hub, baby and I refuse to turn thug.
  5. there not being a Tar-jay closer to my home??
  6. our baby's huge, toothless grin. Call me a cheese all you want but it's the CUTEST EVER.
  7. people hating Wall-E? No joke, I read a blog post recently in which someone claimed it was "the most offensive movie" they'd ever seen. Helluva statement to make about a ROBOT CARTOON, eh?? A little defensive about your trash?? And while I'm raging about that, what's with people acting like taking care of our planet is a bad thing? Ever heard of tending the earth? Politics or no politics, LOGIC tells me that smog is bad.
  8. Chipotle not having a frequent stampy card?
Your turn.

i haven't really noticed the baby on the costco diaper wipes ... but i will look next time. what i have noticed is that all of the babies in joseph's "happy baby colors" book have major skin problems. i have nothing against baby acne, joseph had some for a bit, but seriously these pictures in the book are very unflattering and it makes me lose my appetite everytime i read it.

I love all those things! Hip hop, the Costco baby, Wall-E, and planet earth, Chipotle, the African investment spammers, your baby and Seriously so blessed. THAT'S what's with them.

Maybe people were offended over the fat people who never moved? If Wall-E was making a statement about fat, dirty Americans I would have to say that I agree. Then again, I'm awesome and I recycle.

I truly believe that Seriously, So Blessed is written by a woman. There are too many intricacies of Mormon womanhood and culture for it to be a man, although, look at Sex and the City.

I also lack whimsy, so I haven't seen Wall-E.

Did I really say we were too cute to go to law school? That was very snobby of me. Now you're going to be the rich, hot lawyer and I'm going to be...well, I'll let you know when I figure it out. Right now it has something to do with finances, but that could change at anytime. Man, I wish I had focus.

What's with sweatpits? UNAVOIDABLE.

I can just picture you talking like Jerry Seinfeld right there. "What's with air-line food?"

WonderKitty said...

Oh, and I LOVED Wall-E and I also recycle.

Erin said...

you know, i think it's actually REALLY OFFENSIVE (more offensive than Wall-E) that everyone seems to think "seriously so blessed" is by a guy.

i interpret that to mean that people think that girls can't possibly be that funny or insightful. and perhaps that all girls are actually *like* that so of course one could not be *mocking* that. and that bugs.

i am willing to bet that SSB is a girl.

So Seriously Blessed has got to be written by a girl. Not a woman. Ugh. I hate that blog.

Whats up with old tan men refusing to wear shirts when mowing the lawn? And when I say old I mean any of them over the age of 40. You know the type, uber tan, beer bellies and those awful shorts... usually a bit too short for comfort. I mean my own comfort.

Well, this answers the SSB male vs. female question.

The author is still remaining anoymous, but she's a 25 year-old woman, and a new mom.

If you read the articles that SSB has posted on the sidebar, it says she's a stay at home mom. YES! She totally helped me win an argument with a guy about that.
He told me that a girl couldn't be that funny in her writings. I almost wrote him out of my life because of it. All I had to say to him was, you're not that funny yourself! Don't be jealous!!

What the HELL?!? So Seriously Blessed and I are the same age??? How is THAT possible?
