Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! We all chant in unison because of course it is potluck time...
I am contributing left-over cookies and cream birthday cake from the big birthday bash. I also have a bit of Veggie chili from the weekly meal plan at Blissfully Domestic. You might even be able to find a Frito or two on my floor. Wow. If your loved ones are complaining about food you prepare at home, you may send them to me for a few days and I will send them back completely grateful for YOU. Money back guarantee! Blog-Stedman is very long-suffering.
We were driving somewhere and I said to one of the boys, "that is ridiculous". Ryan piped up and said, "you know what is ridiculous? A STONE HAT, now that is ridiculous". I was laughing and said that I agreed. He then perseverated on it for another 2 hours...I heard "you know what is ridiculous? A STONE HAT, now that is ridiculous" approximately 2387 more times. The funny thing is...well, that is ridiculous. That evening I asked him where he heard that phrase. Scooby Doo. He then went on to ask, "what does ridiculous mean?"
Have there been any documented deaths by yoga?
And now for a P.S.A. (Public Service Announcement) from the I.F.P.A. (Institute for Potluck Advancement):
But most of all
Potlucks are something that we should do
Potlucks are something for me and you!
Potlucks are natural, potlucks are good
Not everybody does it, but everybody should
Potlucks are natural, potlucks are fun
Potlucks are best when you THROW ONE...
*Not all claims have been substantiated.
Remember the little pink box in the right margin for all your comedy needs. Let me clarify that I have added Meg's wallet saga (part one and part two) not because the situation is funny, but because well, that girl is funny even in pain.
Let me introduce my Rock Star Avatar:There seems to have been a little confusion regarding blog-Stedman and my virtual shopping trip. It was my avatar that had the make-over. It is my avatar that has the shapely body. It is my avatar that was prancing around in fishnet hose and a denim skirt so short it can only be worn digitally. After spending around $400 VIRTUAL CASH, I can rock out without conducting an avatar anatomy lesson. By the way, the boots are fabulous. They are red and pink paisley leather. If I had them in real life I would probably sleep in them.
And now for a few more words from the I.F.P.A. (Institute For Potluck Advancement):
You too can throw a potluck. Get your badge here!
You can be like Rachel who threw her very own potluck. Rachel** reported that after throwing a potluck she felt 10 pounds lighter and her children behaved perfectly for the following 24 hours.
**Interview may have been conducted in my head, not with the actual Rachel and her comments may have been condensed due to space from her actual made-up quotes.
*cue theme song*
And now it is time to play "Which dear reader arrived by googling this?"
*deep announcer voice states*
"Let's review the Nirvana week in googlespeak..."
My inquisitive look into Kix vs. Cheerios wins this week's award for most Google search hits. Three dear readers even lasted more then the usual 0 seconds spent when the Nirvana is hit. Because I am hoping to expand my readership, future posts will explore the fascinating debates of granola vs. oatmeal, rolled oats vs. steel cut oats, real cheerios vs. generic cheerios, chex vs. kix *GONG! followed by a very large hook pulling me off the stage* Crap, I didn't even know I could be gonged on my own blog.
Alrighty then, I think I have now answered the question, "you know what is ridiculous?" No stone hat needed here...
When I am not here.
