oh hai

I'm at BlogHer this weekend and have been handing out my card to many people that may or may not decide to visit this little corner of the internet after meeting me. If you're new here let me say hi and welcome to what is possibly the most boring spot on the web.

Since I don't have much to say right now that's exciting or interesting I thought I would give everyone the chance to relive one of my favorite posts from this site. If this is your first visit, I think this post will give you a glimpse of what an idiot my husband is. And I hope you'll come back after even after seeing the following pictures. Enjoy:

Let me tell you a little story...
Once upon a time there was a boy and he was in lurve with a girl. They both had their own flickr accounts but when the girl posted pictures of the boy she only selected ones where he didn't look bad. The boy, on the other hand, posted any picture of the girl that he could. He didn't care if she looked bad, if her eyes were closed, or if every picture was exactly the same. He didn't care if she begged him not to give those pictures to the public, the bastard boy still posted them.

One night the girl came up with a plan. "I have a bunch of pictures of my love on the beach and in ponds without his shirt on. I could threaten to post them and then he would understand why I don't like it when he posts all those crappy pictures of me!"

Thrilled that she had come up with a way to stop the posting of unflattering pictures of her, the girl floated through the rest of her day. That night she laid down the law for the boy and he scoffed at her idea. Then he told his secret lover best friend "She won't do it."

The girl responded with a hearty "Not only am I posting them, I'm sending links to TONS OF PEOPLE!"

This, dear friends, is where the story turns into a picture book.

"I wonder if she really will post those pictures of me?" thinks the boy.

"Uh oh, I think she really is posting those pictures. Maybe if I flex my guns and show her I'm a sexy beast she'll change her mind"
uh oh

After recovering from a laughing fit over the boy's "guns", the girl continued to upload pictures.

"This picture is pretty identical to that other picture" the girl thought as she posted it.

dead sexy

"Sexy!" thought the girl.

"hmm, this picture of the boy running and jumping in the forest is best viewed at the large size so people can see his facial expression," thought the girl but she posted it anyway.

And finally the girl posted the last picture of the boy, a closeup of him lounging on the beach. "Hmm, he seems to have forgotten to take off his sweater," the girl thought.
an aura of fur

As the girl finished uploading the pictures a great feeling of satisfaction washed over her. "HA!" she thought as she waited for the boy's reaction...



    (I am sure I look like the ass end of a gasoline truck with my shirt off, but at least I don't leave the house in that state...)

  2. You know you should be more careful! Trixie is sitting next to the computer and could have seen all of that! Not fit for babies!
    Have fun at Blogher!

  3. First of all, I am jealous of your Blogher attendance. I hope it's a fantastic time!

    Secondly, this post had me cracking up and I thought I should share with you similar post I put up recently. It's really uncanny! Looks like our fellas need to have a meeting.

    Have a blast Blogher!

  4. I'm not sure what mental picture of your husband I've been carrying around in my head all weekend, but when I saw these pictures, I thought, "Ah, yes, looks just like him!" ;) It was great to meet you!

    (Also, read New Moon on the plane today. How weird is that?)
