Too much real life

Radio question of the day: About 60 percent of women hate it when a man does this at night?

My real life has been seriously interfering with my blogging life. Been busy this week and it's only half-over. Letting this happen to me is about as silly as owing money to somebody named Big Daddy. Shouldn't happen.

It's like picking up a penny because it's lucky. I mean how lucky is finding a dirty, germ-infested, just-about-worthless piece of metal on a street with cars coming at you at 60 miles-per-hour?

It's like loving your enemies. I don't know who came up with this silly idea, but I know I hate him, whoever he is. That guy.

It's like obsessing about low self-esteem. I mean you probably already think you're smarter and cuter than you really are. So what's the problem?

It's like tipping a cow. Okay, this is fun, but it serves no socially redeeming purpose. Tip an outhouse instead. This is really funny and serves many socially redeeming functions.

It's like living in a parallel universe. I would stick with this one, but that's just me.

Gonna run. I'm late to two places already.


Answer to radio question of the day: Steals the bed sheets. You guys. Stop that.

Bwwaaa! Funny stuff as always, but visions of tipping occupied outhouses got me. I'm so bad. As for the radio question of the day, I guess I'm part of the 40% balance, since I'm more the cover hog.

Bela said...

ROTLF! Needed that: too much real life in my life too. Thanks. :-)

Mike said...

Heyyy, I don't steal bedsheets. I just roll her off and by virtue of circumstances, I claim them as mine! And I totally agree with you about the penny thing.

Doug said...

That was a good laugh. Thanks, TLP. I'd pay for this site.

natasha said...

Well, I suppose we'll forgive you for having a "life" ... But just this one time!

mireille said...

TLP I'm looking for the Penna legislature election outcomes and can't find what happened (!) Will you report how many of the bums you ousted? xoxo

Minka said...

Did this all just make sense? I guess I have to read it over again. *puzzled look*

OldHorsetailSnake said...

I don't "obsess" about low self-esteem. I got it, and I only flaunt it a little bit.

Amber said...

I thought it was snoring but realized that 60 percent of women hating that was waaaay too low.

And why do we still have pennies at all? Can't we just move everything to 5 cents and use nickels? aRgh!

dddragon said...

Hoss, only a LITTLE bit?

Mireille - the really big thing was two PA Supreme Court Justices were up for retention. For the first time in history, one got "NO", the other barely hung on. Hopefully the rest will get the message.

And mine steals the bedding, too. Also doesn't know how to pull up a duvet cover.

lime said...

you KNOW you are from PA when you know what cow tipping is, have done it, and laughed at that part of your post! as for the bedsheets....oh yeah! Mr. Lime accuses me of hogging the bed. i tell him i only move over to the middle of the bed so i canhave more than a hankie sized corner of the blanket to cover myself with.

Libby said...

COW TIPPING!! lol~! TLP, i mentioned that before, and nobody knew what I meant, but, you, ahh, you're a 'kindred spirit'! Thank you, I thought I was the only one that knew about it!~!!
BoUnCeS!! LibbY!

Fred said...

I've tipped over a cow, but never an outhouse. I wonder if it's too late for me?

natasha said...

Fred, are teachers allowed to do that?

actonbell said...

I'm busy eating this week. Really!
Serena's the one who causes problems with the sheets--she nails them down and won't move.
Tipping garbage cans would be REALLY annoying.

Jamie Dawn said...

I'd love to tip a cow. That's on my list of things to do before I die.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

I had no idea so many folks like to tip cows! If we ever have a blogger convention, we can do a cow tipping event. I'll make the arrangements. For the cow tippin' I mean. I'm not arrangin' the whole convention. Not my thing.

AP3 said...

I'm not sure I approve of cow tipping. But it's your party, TLP.

Real life can be a pain in the butt, especially when it interferes with bloggin!

kenju said...

Bed sheets?? I thought you were gonna' say snoring!

I agree with your comment; I just started blogging last January and I was hooked in about a month. I don't think I could/would stop now!

Doug said...

Aral, I agree with you. Cow abuse should only occur when pregnancy testing them or after being kicked in the teeth by one. Outhouse tipping is good wholesome fun, though.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Okay, okay! *sigh* We'll do outhouses instead of cows. That's what I originally said after all.

On the other hand, maybe we'll just drink beer and eat pizza.

Canadian Dude said...

my guess would have been snoring

i get kicked out for that

i don't mind sleeping in the spare room

i can lay anyway i want

and hog the sheets

cheers

Canadian Dude said...

i hate the word verification thingy.. it seems i can't cope with more than three letters

and why do they all seem to have q's in them

i may do a post on that

hey come to my blog

its word verification free

its ok... i'll come back here anyway

dam.. now there's all those t's

Manchego said...

It's weird the things you can find on the web. Like this site where you can do some virtual cow tipping: http://www.nwlink.com/~timelvis/cowtip.html
Go ahead...give it a try...

Sar said...

I'm up for a blogger convention. Especially if there's outhouse tippin and pizza & beer!

Forget logistics, the real planning question is this: would we first fuel up on the pizza & beer followed by outhouse tipping...or...would we replenish with pizza & beer following the tipping? Regardless, all I know is I'll be a tipper not a tippee, no matter how much beer is involved!
