Anybody read this blog? It's a spoof on the whole mommy-blog trend... read the sidebar if you check it out. I'm sort of not sure what to think of it. It's hilarious. So I'm reading and laughing, but kind of insulted... like I want to think I'm not in the category being teased but I totally am. I like CPK. I like Anthropologie. I even noticed while reading it that I eliminate the "I" before statements making them grammatically, a command. (i.e. "Love these girls"). No spider-eyes, definitely no mock-mother, no business/dental/law or medical school, no perfume in lunch bags (sick). Lots and lots of "no"s.
But I like Twilight, I like my husband, I like my babes, I even like So You Think You Can Dance. I am a partaker in the tart-yogurt phenom. I probably share too much-- always wish I were more of a private person. So I'm trying to read it and think, I know I have a sense of humor... it's funny, she's clever, it's all pretty spot on (exaggerated, but close enough that it's super funny.) I should just laugh right?
But I've always been a little insecure about some of my blogging tendencies. Wish I didn't care what people thought, but I do. Don't want people thinking I'm so self absorbed I expect you to want every detail of my life and even more pictures. And yet I do want to write that much and post that many photos. So I'd better just have a good enough sense of humor that this witty blog won't give me a complex.
But it's sort of giving me a complex.
Even as I write this I'm thinking, how many things have I done in this post that TAMN has already spoofed?
Here's one light, funny post, in case you're too lazy to hit the link but ARE curious. What do you think?
I Just Keep Crying, and Crying and Crying!
So I've been sobbing my brains out for half an hour, alternately calling JJTW and my mom and just sobbing. But here's the thing everybody, it's not a sad cry, it's a HAPPY cry!! Because I am going to Powell (pronounced Pal, but I'm surprised you din't know that) this weekend!! I am seriously so blessed to be able to go!! SO excited! But, I am sort of sad that my abs aren't quite as toned as I wanted them to be before this trip. I don't get how I'm still not skinnier because I go to Golds and walk around looking at people, AND I run around the neighborhood scantily clad in the early morning and evening, AND I go on absurd crash diets. Last week, for example, I only had diet coke (way bad, I know, but I'm off it now), cabbage, and fat-free, sugar-free ice cream, and lost 2 lbs! What else is it going to take, people!?? Maybe I should get addicted to yoga like Madonna, but keep my values, UNlike Madonna. Pros: I can say I do yoga, and wear yoga pants! Cons: might have to see girls with hairy legs, which makes my heart hurt because they obviously don't understand femininity and their role in the plan, and even just imagining living without that makes me sad for them. No wonder they don't have husbands!! Sad! And when I get sad I meltdown. Which is why I need to focus on my Powell happiness. SUMMER and SUNSHINE and TANS and JJWT!! And my cute new swimsuit! It's a bikini, but a totally modest one, because I know who I am and how important that is! And we'll be on a way fun boat! And tons of cute pictures! And my hot new sunglasses! And fun tunes on my cute new pink ipod! Also, I hate materialism. It makes me cry.
