Follow Friday – Frakking Toasters

2 Dec

Please excuse the awful formatting on this post. It’s normally much better, but I’ve been having computer issues (fracking toasters) and so this is what we’re stuck with. Stupid awful miraculous technology.

But I have great news! Jamie and Amanda, winners of the MONKEY GIVEAWAY, I have sent off your prizes. The good news for everybody else is that only two of the winners claimed their prize so I have one last set of monkeys to give away. Also, Isobel somehow went from being wide away to totally asleep in the less than a mile drive from our house to the mail center, so the clerk had to address the envelopes for me. The return address is just “Little Big” and my city. I’m not trying to hide from you or be all mysterious, it was just easier for her to write. You should have seen me juggling a totally passed out toddler plus the three packages I was sending off. And besides that, I had with me a take and bake pizza. I also sent off a pretty awesome present to my twitter wife Kristin, in return for the awesomeness she sent me.

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

GirlDetective I’m sure that running FIFA is great, but having the name Sepp Blatter and not becoming a urologist just seems like a real wasted opportunity

Sween Went to Costco. Bought a crate of Costcos.
LaurelKS Watching Ghost Adventures or, as I like to call it, Dude, bro, man, guy, hey, dude, hey, hey, hey look at this.

Yowhatsthehaps Every time I find free wifi I get all Gollum up in here. “MY PRECIOUSSSSS!!!”

Rossgrady Gee thanks, Netflix! You’re right, since Breaking Bad isn’t available for instant watching, Season 1 of Gimme a Break is a great substitute.

amandaha I feel it’s important to watch this workout DVD at least once without actually doing the moves, just so I get it right when it’s my turn.

mikey_m00n Thank God for Mexican food. The Mexicans would have all starved to death without it.

GirlDetective Just finished my Christmas shopping! I hope everyone likes dreidels.

ScrewyDecimal You know you’re a children’s librarian when you pantomime raining (à la “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”) while conversing with an adult about rain

Zaius13 Is it “UP the wazoo” or “OUT the wazoo”? I want the review committee to know my dissertation was thoroughly researched

Michaeljnelson Said it before, I’ll say it again & the fact that it’s supremely uninteresting won’t deter me in the least: I like many brands of mustard.

Mindykaling When celebs get pestered by paparazzi why don’t they just start singing “Hey Jude” or some incredibly expensive song to clear?

    I am always looking forward to these posts. Thank you for the laughter while my daughter wastes away in the throes of fever on the couch. Well, in the throes of Netflix Instant, I guess.

    Happy Weekend!

      Thank you so much! That really means a lot to me, especially when my computer’s being an asshole and fucks up the formatting. Boo.

    I’m so proud to be included (amandaha). I love this – look forward to it every week. please note that I did watch that workout DVD… while eating a Lean Cuisine.

    • LittleBig December 3, 2010 at 12:50 pm #

      Our workout styles are similar. HIGH FIVE!
