Feel Me Up Friday: Frumpy-dumpy biscuit dropper

First of all, I'm totally giving all you I Heart Joy Like BR80: Part Two donors a standing 'O' (eww, not like that) because in just five days, I'm already about halfway to my goal. You all rock. Hard. If you haven't dug up your cushion monies to donate just $1 measly (for the chance to win $100 + concert tix), or scraped up enough to buy a sweet shirt, yet, I hope you'll find it in your heart to help the cause. I believe giving is contagious, and when you give, your heart is full. I don't care how lame that sounded either...

In honor of a FANTASMIC first week, a new shirt just for you (and Mr. Lion):
Now go wash your digits. Preferably with a >>insert a term relative to the disgusting word "moisturizing"<< soap. I like soft hands.

Random Fact: While grocery shopping yesterday, you might have noticed a frumpy girl in sweats with dirty-pony-tailed hair near the refrigerated biscuits. She may or may not have been struggling to hold a trashcan's worth of coupons in one hand while examining the price of said biscuits with the other. Whilst doing so, she also may or may not have knocked down the entire effing shelf full of biscuit cans. Those cans may or may not have rolled all over the floor whilst onlookers snickered and sneered...

Random Fact:  I have, in fact, fallen down the stairs a 2nd time since I last posted. Knocked a picture off the wall. Grace never was my strong suit.

WHHOOOAAA! That was great. Really. All this JOY has me feeling, as Jen would say, SPARKLY! Or maybe it was your soft hands. Whatevs.

Until Monday friends,  if you saw a poor, frumpy writer-type knock over all the canned biscuits, would you pretend you didn't see, help, or laugh your ass off?

I don't even care that you dropped the biscuits. I'm proud of you for your wise coupon usage! Huzzah!

Shannon said...

I love your clumsiness. Makes me feel less awkward. (I may or may not be the frazzled chic in produce who knocked over the orange and lime displays).

Have a fab weekend!

Matthew Rush said...

I am rock hard! Oops, er - I mean I DO rock hard! (ewww, not like that).

Joanna St. James said...

Ha ha u crack me up, my husband believes by knocking things over u help the economy, they prolly have to employ more people to pick up after you so rock on! You are saving America one biscuit can at a time

LTM said...

I would laugh my A off. In fact, I'm laughing right now reading about it.

I might even point and take a picture w/my phone... BAH!!! :D

I used to fall a lot. Hmmm... no idea how I fixed that. have a super weekend, G~

Karla Nellenbach said...

Hahaha! First, I'd laugh...then, I'd offer to help (while still snickering) :)

salarsenッ said...

The entire shelf?? Was precious Lil with you? I bet she laughed. LOL.

Enjoy your weekend.

Linda G. said...

Uh...two out of three? I'd laugh my ass off while helping. ;)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

That dude's got the same hairstyle as me this morning. It looks a lot better on him. ;)

i would giggle a bit, go and try to help pick them up. Then my three little boys would swarm around you and start: kicking the cans about the place, tripping over cans, and using them to bludgeon each other. then the disgruntled employee would come, GLARE at all of us, and I'd scoop up my screaming four year old, put him in the cart, give "the mommy" look at my older two. They would jump onto the side of my cart, and i'd wheel the heck out of there, while the employee sighs and apologizes to you for my crazy kids...
yeah.
i'm pretty sure that's how it would go down. but at least the employee would assume my kids made the mess and not you! :)

Jen Daiker said...

Bahahaha That was YOU yesterday *points and laughs* that was hilarious!!! I hope you picked those said biscuits up. It's not like the grocery store kids actually do anything.

Falling blows... you need to wear a padded outfit at all times, you could decorate with all your creative t-shirt ideas, yes that would be a little self-involved, but seriously, who isn't?

Thanks for the sparkly love... I love feeling sparkly.

Carolyn V. said...

I would totally help you pick up the biscuits (and then I'd laugh...it's the rebellious streak in me).

Lola Sharp said...

Make me a v-neck/scoop neck girly rocker girl (preferably long sleeve or 3/4 sleeve) shirt, and I'll buy it.
I want YOU to design ME a lola-shirt, K?

I loves you.
Now have a delightful weekend...and don't let your kid run you down and make you road pizza.
Love,
me

Jaydee Morgan said...

I'd probably laugh as well (and thank God that it happened to you and not me) - then I'd help you out :)

Kelly Breakey said...

In all honesty I would help and hold the laughter until whoever did the knocking over was on their way...in your case, I would laugh my ass off. I may or may not help you pick them up depending on how much enjoyment I am getting out of show but I would most certainly sell tickets and then in show of true friendship donate all of the proceeds to your charity drive for this month!

I'm a friend that way.

Colene Murphy said...

Okay...I snickered at the biscuit thing but just for the record if I was there in person I would be snickering AND helping. so...yea.

And SEE!! Falling down the stairs once is like being bitten by a brown recluse spider, it makes you more susceptible happening again!

Lenny Lee! said...

Elana Johnson said...

I'm glad you're halfway to your goal! You rock!!

Robyn Campbell said...

That was you? Ahahahahahaha *still laughing* (Glad it was you and not me.) Oh, and you need to contact NASA. They may have a suit for you to wear.

Just read the Barbie jeep post. Thanks for making me laugh through my sickness. :)

Kelly said...

Yay! So excited you are halfway to your goal. I sent my confirmation from my other email address with my hubby's name on the receipt for my donation. Let me know if you got it or confused you :).
I swear I just teased the stocker at my grocery store on Monday because he was stocking the tubes of biscuits and they fell!!

Nicole Zoltack said...

I'm a klutz too. Hubby laughs at me when I fall, isn't that awful? I think so. Then again, maybe if I didn't fall so much....

And I'm not the only klutz in the family either. My sister falls down a lot too. She broke our curtain rod when she grabbed it to try to stop herself from falling. She fell anyhow.

Susan Fields said...

Already about halfway to your goal - that's fantastic news!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

WTG on being halfway to your goal!

Please be careful...

Abby Minard said...

Man, I'm the same way with falling. But its worse when its my kid- I laugh at her and she really hates me for it. But its SO funny when she falls.

Don't break any bones! We'd hate for you to be out of order!

Candice said...

You might wanna start wearing a bike helmet and knee pads 24/7 from here on out. ;)

Talli Roland said...

Definitely laugh my ass off. It's funny! :) For me, anyway!

Tahereh said...

hehe awwwww you are too funny :D

big hugs. <33
