Ha! I hate when I talk to myself in public...without kids...so embarrassing!

Fear of ketchup? What are you doing to those kids???

LMAO Wonderful PINT post!! I'm one of those 'talking to myself' types, too, so you're not alone!! xD Still trying to decide what I want to do for my own notes this week...eh. I'll get there eventually! =) Have a good day!!

Loved this post. I came to vote for Mason and laughed at the note about talking to yourself in public, the clutter queen, heck...the whole thing was funny!!!! Thanks for the chuckle from one of my very favorite bloggers!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Blogger Leiah said...

Sure you can please everyone - half when they stay in your life, half when they leave. At least that's how looking at it keeps me from going crazy. And scared of ketchup - how do they eat scrambled eggs? Yep, we're all crazy in our own little way aren't we? And I totally said that all out loud...here, alone, by myself.

May 4, 2010 at 7:25 AM  
Blogger Unknown said...

There was nothing wrong with talking to yourself...until it became a two-sided conversation. LOL And no, you cannot please everyone and it's really not worth the effort to try.

Get Out Of My Head Shell!! Okay, actually, DON'T. Stay in there and keep writing exactly what I'm thinking.

I'm crazy right along with ya..so don't worry...there's always more then one person mumbling to themselves at the same time...lol

I"m with Leiah on the ketchup and eggs thing. Afraid of ketchup?

And I can send you a picture of my apartment if it would make you feel better about your clutter. I don't even have kids and it looks like a bomb went off.

LMBO, that could of so been one of my own conversations to myself, minus the beach season.

LOL at fear of ketchup and thick skin/not gaining weight! Too funny! Loved these today!!!

Trying to please everyone is an effort in futility. It never works. I thought talking to myself was something that came with the territory of being a mom. I'm sure my kids just assume I'm crazy.
Way to go Mason!

Blogger Jenny said...

Totally hilarious girl! You are too funny...I talk to myself all the time!

I definitely think Will thinks I am crazy..sometimes he will repeat the things I am talking to myself about...confusing..I know.

Keeping my fingers crossed for Mason!

So funny! I talk to myself in the car all the time - and I just hope other drivers think I am talking on my bluetooth!

Blogger Evonne said...

Don't try to please everyone. If they don't like who you are, then it's their loss.

I talk to myself all the time when I'm grocery shopping. I need to bring my iPod or something so people stop giving me crazy looks!

May 4, 2010 at 8:52 AM  
Blogger We 2 Bees said...

You crack me up! I talk to myself too, it's the answering I understand we have to be afraid of. I've been working on the thicker skin too, it's hard to have things bounce off when we are so transparent.
Have fun organizing! I'm a clutter Queen too.

You are wonderful, cluttered and talking to yourself doesn't change that!

Although I have to admit, I really want to know the ketchup story. lol!

I so hear you on the clutter. And every time I get it cleaned up, I tell myself the same thing...and it always comes back. Dammit.

Blogger Amber at The Musings of ALMYBNENR said...

I agree with the whole opinion thing. At work, I've learned to not say anything unless someone else speaks to me first. There's no reason to let people in, especially when they could be trying to use things against you. So, I'm polite, and answer questions simply if I'm asked. Otherwise, I chill with my work and my iPod. :)

Oh what I wouldn't do for some thicker skin! (and thinner thighs)

I had regular conversations with myself, sometimes they are the best conversations of the day :)

I too had a no clutter rule when we moved to our new house.. and you know it is much easier to start off right then get it right later (as I stare at the one counter who's view is often blocked by the fridge that has about a foot of clutter on it)

Start organized and stay that way...BEST.advice.ever. Seriously. That's totally where I go wrong.

I absolutely laughed out loud at the post-it about not talking to yourself in public without the kids as cover ... too funny!!!

I'm not nearly as concerned about your habit of talking to yourself as I am about your fear of ketchup.

I mean, granted it probably has a mess of preservatives and other fun crap in there, but it makes french fries dance in your mouth.

How is that scary?

I need to shed my tough skin too . . . My fat @$$ is nowhere near being beach ready!

Hilarious! I LOVE your concept for this blog. It would save my husband a lot of grief if I spilled my barbs online!

I especially like the "unless you are asked your opinion" post-it. Because I sure know a few people I could pass that along, too. None of which I can name. Right now.

Found you through SITS!

I tried so hard to not pass on my neurosis to my child and turns out, he's even weirder than me and has so many on his own!! He doesn't have mine though so I guess it's a success:)

Enjoyed reading!

It can totally happen! I was a straight up slob at my old apartment, but when we got our new house last year, I swore I would not let it get cluttered up and it is still looking great!!! You can do it!!!

I am all cluttery around here too, I love/hate it all at the same time!
And what is it with ketchup? My husband has an irrational fear of it as well!

May 4, 2010 at 2:50 PM  
Blogger Joann Mannix said...

When you get the thicker skin, can you send some my way? And no, I am also not talking about extra body flab.

Also, if you find the secret to the de-cluttering, whisper it to me.

Or even better yet, someone to de-clutter for you, when you're done, point em in my direction.

Great notes. Thanks for brightening my day.
