I have foreign friends, well, at least I think I do

Well hello there! I'm not here today. I've moved, but only temporarily. Today I'm filling in for one of the best girl's around, Kat over at 3 Bedroom Bungalow. She used to be my good friend in Missouri, but now she's my good friend in England. That's right, I've got foreign friends, people.

Kat, is mother to two adorable children and wife to one military man who up and transferred his family across the pond. A while back she asked me if I wouldn't mind helping her out during her move. I thought she needed my help packing so I hopped on the first flight and showed up at her house with a bunch of empty boxes and packing tape. Although she was grateful that I was eager to pitch in and help, I learned shortly after my arrival that all she really needed me to do was guest post for a day on her site.

Well, Kat and I had ourselves a good laugh about the whole thing until I asked her to reimburse my airfare back home. Ever since then she's avoided any sort of contact initiated on my part. Every email I've sent, every late-night and early morning phone call I've made, even the balloon bouquets have been ignored.

After our little "falling out" I'm beginning to worry that she may not using my guest post after all. Do me a favor, click over to her site and see if I'm there. I can only hope the basket of mini muffins I sent COD to her last week did the trick and won back her friendship.

This is my first time visiting your blog and think I'm hooked. I'm heading over to check out your guest post. I appreciate your humor this early in the morning.

You can't trust people living in England. They drink tea. TEA! Coffee's sissy cousin. Oh, and they don't even talk good English.

However, if you go over there to threaten her, and get your money back...not all of their cops carry guns, so you might get away with it.

(Make sure you catch her off-base though, unless things have changed since I was in, LOTS of military people have guns. And drink coffee.)

DeeMarie said...

Heading over there. Glad you're back- at least kind of. I've missed you lately, sister!

Carolyn...Online said...

I'll go see if your in her house bound and gagged and waiting for the Bobbies.

Sprite's Keeper said...

Yup, you were there. And featured! I think she's not mad at you anymore, or too far away to be afraid.

Mama Dawg said...

Dude, COD to England? You rock! I'd totally be your friend then. Cause I have that kind of cash to just throw around.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

I'll let you write a post for me if you send me a basket of muffins!

I think you gave me your cold. BITCH!

HarryJack's Mom said...

Obviously the cold germs didn't eat your humor - so glad you're back! Heading over there now....

Captain Dumbass said...

Meh, I haven't had any coffee yet.

Casey said...

Ok, ok.. I'll follow you anywhere.

Robin said...

Next time send YOURSELF COD! (Just make sure you put air holes in the box... note to self .) She won't be able to resist your charms, and you'll probably get a couple of scones with jam out of the deal. Now THOSE are yummy!
Great post over there!
:)

goodfather said...

OK, I'm heading over. Good call with the mini muffins. Who doesn't like mini muffins?

goodfather said...

Oops, forgot to mention that I have 'something' for you over on my blog. It's not an award, exactly, more of a disturbing tribute to you personally. Um, now I feel kind of awkward. Maybe I should COD some mini muffins to myself...

HeatherPride said...

Nothing says "sorry for the misunderstanding" like a basket of muffins delivered C.O.D.!! You really know how to get in someone's good graces!!

Krystal said...

Jenni Jiggety said...

Were the mini muffins chocolate chip? If they weren't you might have a problem...

Cat said...

She may be foreign now, but she'll always be a hillbilly at heart. Funny, she's not returning my calls either. All I did was laugh when she explained her trouble with NWA. Hmm. Maybe we should hack into her bank account, you and me, and fly ourselves over to visit her (first class, of course) and ask her WTF?

blissfullycaffeinated said...

Wait, I just heard on the news that Obama's Mother in Law is moving into the White House with them. Dang, the president can't even get away from his MIL. That's rough.

Heading over to Kat's place now, dahling.

Kiss!

Tricia said...

Damn foreigners. Who can ignore balloon bouquets. Did you forget to blow them up?

Chris Wood said...

Jen, how many people do you manage to stalk? Seriously, you must have the whole 'newspaper with eye slits cut in it' routine down a treat.

I'm just saying.

Anndi said...

What kind of muffins?

Did you send the balloons with a clown? Cause maybe he looked like Pennywise and scared her. You know, some people are afraid of balloons... and clowns... and fruit stickers.

Wait, did you send muffins so you would be HASAHER?

Why am I still typing or leaving a comment... you're not even here and now I'll have to go there and comment and you probably won't read either one because you're off stalking someone else.

*sigh*

Pamela said...

You know, when you show up at my actual house in April, after the baby comes, and you guest post for me, I *WILL* put your ass to work. More than the blogging. Oh yes, yes, I will. Because I am good like that. And I will not be paying for airfare.

beth said...

She's just having jolly good fun with you now that she's a foreigner.

April said...

you are *so* cultured. wow.

HeatherPride said...
