Say A Little Prayer Before You Read This And Hope That You're Not On My List

About a month ago, McAllen tagged me in a meme where the taggee is supposed to spin a story and work the names of five other bloggers into the post while linking back to her tagger. Now, if you want to see how this is really done, I implore you to visit McAllen’s site Ah, These Are The Days of Our Lives to read her hilarious recount of a night gone wrong. Very wrong.

But if you’d rather see me cop out and offer you a feeble response to her brilliant post, then stay here. Instead of weaving some elaborate story, I’m just going to throw out some linky-love at random. If my love doesn't fall on you this time, please come back, I promise I'll have better aim next time. (You know, Jeremy said those exact words to me on our fourth date. Ah, memories.)

These are in no particular order:
1. Goodfather, who I consider a friend and a human being, recently constructed a voodoo wall for me on his site. He claims it was a shrine, but I must beg to differ. This "shrine" was complete with mirrors and candles and bits of my wiry hair. Two days later, my blow dryer caught on fire while I was drying it. My hair? Singed. My pride? Gone. My suspicion? Heightened. (For all you doubters out there, yes, my hair did get singed, as for my pride, I don't have any, so I guess we'll just call it a draw.)

But the reason I’m tagging Goodfather in this meme is for this photo he posted last week. He claims it’s his blogging costume.I laughed out loud when I saw this because my son, a precocious little three-year old, has the EXACT SAME outfit. See?


2. Stiletto Mom, I so calling you out. For as long as we’ve known each other we’ve not tagged each other in a meme. Perhaps this was an oversight on my part or maybe it was by design, but you’re not getting out of this one, sister. My son, sweet and innocent as he is, asks almost weekly for me to find “that one website with the lady legs on it”.

Yes, it seems that my son likes to look at Stiletto Mom’s gams. She has great legs, I'll give her that, but how she uses them makes for a much better story. (You should all know that the link I just gave you will take you to a story that is legendary around these parts. It has been howled over by my RL friends and I think about it whenever I find myself in an elevator.)

3. Colepack is just plain cool. I found her months ago and, bless her heart, she still comes by to read me even after I made a complete a** out of myself on her site. You see, a while back she put up a post about how a bunch of "avian wackos" had invaded her favorite coffee spot. They let birds in cafes where she lives? I thought Utah had lax health code enforcement. Colepack was nice and let me go on for weeks about how birds hate me and that I’ve been pooped on and buzzed by many, many winged creatures. Eventually, I came to realize that these " avian wackos" in the cafes were actually "snow birds" or old people. Yes, I'm really that dim and Colepack is really that forgiving.

4. My fourth victim is Tina over at The Bigger They Get. Yesterday, I'm pretty sure she called me a stripper on her blog. Also, she mentioned my name and Dooce's name in the same sentence. I was thrilled that it didn't also have the words "she sucks" or "definitely not anything like" sandwiched in there as well.

5. No list (good or bad) would be complete without Captain Dumbass. He's wiley, he's tall, he's running out of stuff to blog about thanks to this NAMBLORAMALAMA thing he's signed up for. Also, let it be known that my dancing face is nothing compared to this spectacle.


Okay folks, that's it. My victims were chosen completely at random. But you know what? I loved throwing these links out there so much that I'm going to do it again next week. But instead of just springing it on the next group of folks, I'm giving you all a few clues as to who can expect Steenky Bee to tag them next...

1. This blog is named after a breakfast food.
2. This blogger loves dogs and frequently shops at Target.
3. She actually admits the lack of truth on her site in the title of her blog.
4. This blogger is currently pregnant. Yes, I have no mercy for the pregnant when it comes to tagging. (And no, it's not Dooce.)
5. The title of this blog rhymes with "Pout".

If I come over can I wear Henry's pirate hat??

gingela5 said...

Oh man I was almost first! That's shocking! So glad I wasn't tagged hehe Is that bad? Maybe it's my way of comforting my hurt pride that you didn't choose me...

goodfather said...

SECOND!!!!!

goodfather said...

Drat, I WAS second.

LOL!!! Sorry about the voodoo wall, sometimes these little projects get away from me. Also, I thought you were kidding about Henry having the exact same blogging costume. I laughed so hard my pirate hat fell off into my coffee.

Cape Cod Gal said...

I am never going to be first no matter how much I stalk you. Love memeing people! Unfortunately, only have time to follow about 10 blogs. Work really gets in the way sometimes!

jori-o said...

Wow, that's quite the cowinky-dink that your son has the same outfit as the Godfather. Or is it the other way around?? I'm off to check out your peeps--
Have a great day!

Colepack said...

Love the hat and the honor (subjection) of the meme. I will be passing it on!
bird poo..... hee hee. How funny that most post in a few days will be about birds...... a real one that is.

Michele said...

Can Heather and I share the hat?

DeeMarie said...

Great pics, great links... I read them all.
Is Cookie a breakfast food? No... so I guess that's not me. And it's actually not the title of my blog, just my fave nickname...
And I'm not preggers either. Guess I'll have to wait and see who the next set of victims is!!!

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Goodfather talks about you so much, I had to come check you out. You are funny, I'll be back.

Cameron said...

I told goodfather to stop with the voodoo witchcraft, but did he listen??? NOOOOOO. And now we have a hair incident. Way to go, goodfather. ;)

Tiffany T said...

Okay, so how much of a dufus am I that I thought "Avian Wackos" had to do with the bottled water?! So, I completely sympathize, and it could just have as easily been me :).

Memes are a blessing and curse. They allow you to share your love of what makes you tick... but you are cursed with having to dig that deep into yourself to find something interesting.

My meme would be a cricket song.

Thanks for sharing!

Miss Grace said...

Genuinely curious about next week...

The Stiletto Mom said...

Henry is already a ladies man...I knew it! Thanks for the shout out, and for calling attention to one of the worst moments in my sales career. :)

I hope you are not still in the tub with the laptop by the way. All those warnings about mixing water and electricity? Yeah, they really are serious about that.

Heinous said...

Wow, you did totally cop out on this one. I can say that since you've already tagged your victims.

Sorry to hear about the singed hair. I'm off to work on my own voodoo wall. Thanks for the suggestion.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Thank you for not tagging me...I could be insulted but I'm actually grateful. Hooker.

and I don't have any idea who the people are that you're tagging next? cereal? pout? your messin with my feeble little mind.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Darn it! Why didn't yu pick ME. I thought we had something special...

::::cries sorrowful tears....wipes face on sleeve...writes a poem about betrayal and revenge::::

bee said...

A voodoo wall?? I like that idea!

Sprite's Keeper said...

Immensely relieved and yet a little bit let down...

Mama Dawg said...

All of these bloggers are so deserving of being tagged.

Preston said...

Love the pics...

apathy lounge said...

1. Not me
2. Not me, also
3. Not me again.
4. Not me...yet again.
5. Ditto

Just so you know.

Ali said...

I don't know what Goodfather is looking at online but Elmo looks really surprised! Stiletto Mom's gams, maybe?

Debbie said...

I think you should include a picture of Henry in every single post. That child is just too cute for words!

P.S. I know you don't love me anymore.

P.S. S. Pick Sprite's Keeper next time! I think she's sniffling over there in the corner.

Krystal said...

Oh boy! you sure found a way to make everyone feel special now didn't you? I swear Jenbo - when are you going to learn?! Wench

GreenJello said...

I am so glad I'm not pregnant. ;)

Did Henry enjoy his M&Ms?

Robin said...

Random question: what is that behind goodfather's ear?
Anyway! I am way impressed with Henry's M&M restraining abilities. If that were a picture of me (definitely wearing the pirate hat, btw), I'd be holding the bag over my wide open pie-hole and my face would be covered in chocolate.
:) Robin

jennster said...

lmfao- i love you. in a stalker kind of way.

Casey said...

Tee hee, Goodfather and Henners are twins. Love it. All but one of those folks are in my regular reading, I'll have to check out the one I missed. If she called you a hooker, she's ok in my book.

Pamela said...

It's because I called you a hooker yesterday, isn't it?

Bring it sistah.

PAPATV said...

Pirates always get the girls.

Did you know your pirate name is your first boyfriend/girlfriend's name + a roman number from I to IIV.

I'm Cathy IV.

I love it.

Captain Dumbass said...

Goodfather and Henner's are both honourary members of the SS. Us & Them's crew since they already have hats. I'm thinking we should change goodfather's name to Baron Samedi though to better reflect his "hobbies."

And thank you for the honour. This should help drag my ass through the rest of NevrBloNoMo.

Elle Charlie said...

Ooo, great, some new blogs to check out!

Chris Wood said...

That's a great picture of Captain Dumbass! Cheers for the link to the stiletto mom also - good call!

for a different kind of girl said...

This method of forwarning the upcoming bloggers is nice. Gentle. Like a flower or perhaps a tub of Cool Whip and a spoon, which is how I wish I was spending my evening tonight.

Kat said...

So glad I am not getting tagged! That is a load off my chest! I do believe that Henners has an awesome pirate hat that my kids would totally want to steal from him, considering their pirate addiction and all...

blissfully caffeinated said...

Oh my sweet heaven, I choked on my pepsi when I saw the picture of Henners right below GoodFather. That's freaking hilarious.

I've missed you, darling dearest.

xo

Maggie May said...

you are so creative and charming sweetie!

Seriously Mama said...

You are a rock star. And so is that adorable little boy of yours. Henry, not Jeremy. Although...

;-)

Oh and at least I KNOW I'm not the pregnant one!!!

Lola said...

I'm bobbing, weaving and ducking for cover as I comment, because memes scare meme!

Mc Allen said...

ChurchPunkMom said...

Captain Dumbass said...

Hey. So I'm doing this, just at my own "special" pace.

You can use tap water links london but if you live in an area with links london jewellery really hard water, then you may use distilled links of london sale or bottled water.Before we go into the links of london silver how-tos, you need to gather some items first such discount links of london as an ironing board, an iron and a water links of london watch charm bottle that has water in itTo start ironing a shirt links of london friendship bracelets we will be starting with the front of the shirt. Slip the shirt onto the board links of london sweetie bracelet so that the left hand side of the shirt is facing up on the board and the rest of the discount links of london chains shirt is hanging off the back of the board. Imagine as though the ironing board is acting as though links of london pendants it is putting the shirt on by entering the left side of the shirt first.
