Follow Friday – Herp Derp! Special Snow Flake Birthday Edition!

15 Oct

This week’s Follow Friday post is brought to you by my birthday and the fact that I am one step closer to becoming the crotchety old woman I’ve always been inside my heart. Daaaaaw. My birthday is tomorrow, to be exact, but my favorite way to celebrate is to indulge in week-long excuses of doing things “for my birthday.” I’m going to order wontons! (It’s my birthday.) I’m going to stay in my pajamas all day watching Battle Star Galactica! (It’s my birthday.) I’m going to go crazy go nuts in the thrift store! (It’s my birthday.) I’m going to eat a bowl of candy at Halloween! (It’s my birthday.)

This gets old when I’m still saying it in November, but for now I’m going to sit back and enjoy it. Anthony starts his new job next week and I’m thrilled for what this means for my family. So thrilled that when we went to Target to buy a baby shower gift for my friend Erin I sprung for a dollar-bin witch hat for my daughter. I think it suits her.

Also, yesterday I received the most perfect spam comment: it said only, “herp derp.” After a long discussion about it with Grumblies and Senator Boley’s Mom, we decided we needed to start a “Herp Derp Awareness” Campaign. Grumblies was kind enough to make us a button. Wear yours with pride!

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  Learn more about it in my FAQ. See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here.

    I can’t tell you how many glances at the glittorous pink jersey it took for me to realize that it didn’t actually say “Ho Me RUN!” As in, “I am a prostitute, get out of my way.” Sometimes the visual processing part of my brain is autistically literal.

      That’s basically how Halloween works, right?
