Surprise, surprise!

My aunt is always sending me cool stuff via email... This is one of them! If you've ever wondered what exactly goes on on your computer in the wee hours, check this out.

She also sent me some Easter funnies, I think we all know that this would be me :D

And the goof ball in me just loves this one:
I have been a little behind in blogging these days, as I have said on several blogs- I am trying to better balance real life and blogging, and blogging about real life. ;) That being said, I have yet to find a happy medium. Maybe it's Spring and her newly budded charm, I dunno. We just want to be out side, is that so wro-ung?

Anywhoo, tangents and digressions aside *cheeky grin, are they ever really aside with me?*,I haven't gotten in as much blogging as I have wanted to keeping busy, and haven't really read any blogs since last Wednesday ( I even forgot that last Friday was Anna's Spring Picture day. I felt so bad, but at least she was wearing one of her favorite High School Musical shirts- hey look at that! Another tangent!)... imagine my surprise when I read my new blogging buddy and fellow Dork Blogger's post about me. Pippajo was tagged and awarded this prestigious award.She then had to tag 5 other people that she felt wrote thought (amongst other things) provoking posts.

*cough* Now, I don't know exactly if that is true in my case, but since Pippa felt enough about my writing to shout it from her blog's roof top, I am very deeply honored! This is what Pippajo had to say about moi:
2. Mert at Almost Somewhat Positive. Mert is my newest discovery (I don't branch out of my blog ruts very easily) and manages to strike just the right balance between hilarious and sobering. She doesn't shy away from the often difficult realities of life but always manages to put a humorous spin on them. Mert also has mad graffix skillz that leave me in awe. She can design buttons and everything!

Thank you again, Pippa... I am really glad that we met. Your kind words are so appreciated... I am so feeling the (dork) love. :D BTW, Conan! That's all I'm going to say, LOL! Plus, who can ever get enough sidebar bling?

I'll be writing another post within the next few days about my five, so stay tuned. Speaking of tangents...As seen at my blogging buddy Michelle's blog, I just had to try it. Actually, if you really want to know, I was nervous. I don't know if you read this post, (you probably haven't because it was my second blog post) I have a little theory:

Even though the MISU and I are fairly intelligent people, we have had 2 children now. Each child is the equivalent of eating paint chips for 2 years straight, you know, when you figure in sleep deprivation, yelling, screaming, barfing, boog removal and tantrums. 2 years of paint chips. That has to equal at least a 25 point deduction off the old intelligence score. So 2 children X 2 years of paint chips... Anyway given the fact that we collectively have been out of school for about 30 years, my penchant for terrible spelling and punctuation... Well you get the picture. We ain't as smart as we used to be.

I'm a little smarter than I thunk I were. On paper anyway. Err, I mean pixel.

Yay! Congrats on your mention on Pippajo's site and on your 127 IQ!! My score was a pleasant surprise as well, I thought for sure I was dumbed down quite a bit since I had Emma! haha, I do have my moments!

Holly said...

Okay so I was hesitant to do the IQ but I was told I'm also a bright mastermind. ;) So it's all good.

Congrats on the award. You really do deserve it! And I love the egg dying cartoon. Thanks for the laughs!

maggie said...

I think I am to afraid of taking the IQ test. Think of how many paint chips I've had. OMG. I'm lucky I can still tie my own shoes. Oh right they're all slip ons.

The icon story is too funny but I was surprised that firefox didn't come out and kick IE's ass.

Congrats on your award!

I like the egg costume. If I find one on clearance, I'm going to get one for the kids.

You have a really good blog. Most people don't fully grasp what mind power can do to one's accomplishment.

You've got an extremely great blog. To become a profitable person the essential factor would be to have positive thinking.
