It’s Sunday, but I wrote all the really blasphemous stuff earlier in the week. I’d like that noted in my permanent record.

You know how I’m always perpetually late for trends and memes?  WELL, NOT THIS TIME, MOTHERFUCKERS.  Apparently, “stocking is the new “leisure diving (which was the new “owling) (which was the new “planking) and this time I’m totally on time for it.  “Stocking” is the new hipster art of imitating stock photography.  Why?  I DON’T KNOW AND I DON’T HAVE TIME TO RESEARCH IT.  Mainly because if I don’t post this immediately, I risk becoming out of date.  Not this time, hipsters.

I WIN.

Updated:  Motherfucker. I went back to find the links explaining all of this, and apparently in the time it took me to write this update I’ve become obsolete.  According to the internet, “horsemaning is now the new “stocking”.  Fuck it.  I’m officially saving us from ourselves.  Guess what?  Not-doing-shit is the new horsemaning.  I just called it.  You’re welcome, world.  Go watch some tv.  It’s what all the cool kids are doing.

In other news, it’s Sunday, which means it’s time for the weekly wrap-up:

This week’s wrap-up sponsored by Oh Crap Potty Training, which sounds like a SNL skit, but is actually a business devoted to getting your kid potty trained in a week. I can only guess this involves some sort of magic. You should probably check it out.

  13. Thanks for the much needed distraction! I’m in Philly, waiting out this hurricane, and watching way too much news coverage. There are definitely a few reporters who deserve a good stabbing.

  14. If it makes you feel better, I only learnt about planking two days ago when a very drunk man tried to do it out of the window of the bus I was in. The moving bus. On the freeway. The internet really does bring out the dumbass in people.

    Also, I just discovered this blog and have spent literally hours on it. Thanks for being hilarious and sorry for being a bit of a stalker.

  15. Stocking? Leisure diving? Owling? I am so out of date. I just heard about planking, and for the life of me, could not understand why people want to lay face-down in the dirt. I hate when a hair gets stuck in my lip gloss. Grass and gravel? No thanks.

    BUT! After it was stated in the article all i could picture was her separating a shoulder because she was fighting a raccoon. That is bad-ass! Seriously! Thanks Washington Post!

It’s way past my bedtime, but I have to say that you totally rock and if you’re ever in NW Arkansas (who would want to be here on purpose) you would totally fit in with us. We have a fully stocked liquor cabinet (that my husband removed good cooking stuff from to put his collection of liquor into) and can mix anything you might want. Tonight it was blue raspberry martinis. :-D Yeah, tomorrow I will totally think I shouldn’t drink and post comments. :-)

  21. @Kelley: An actual conversation I once had:

  25. I went through and read you sex column posts and saw that video from youtube about the frog and the monkey. It was at the Honolulu Zoo. Where I was today. I saw that exhibit. I wish I had known about this video before so I could’ve been like “Did you know there’s a video of one of these monkeys forcing a frog to give him a blowjob on youtube.” Just casually as we walked by in the same tone as, “It’s hot today and perhaps we should get some water.”

    I had to leave flickr completely to even get out of the weird photo loop.

    But you looked fab in that pictures of you I saw.

    Now I have to go ask a priest to perform an exorcism on my iPhone. Which isn’t really that bizarre of a request to a faith that routinely checks dead bodies for decay.

  50. Potty training in a week, huh? I can only assume it involves duct tape and handcuffs. And not in a sexy way. More in a “I’m going to tape your ass to this toilet and handcuff you to the sink until you stop pissing in your pants” kind of way. And probably a magic wand, too. And a fake identity so you can run from protective services.

    Momma Teacher Lady recently posted What the $&!@ was that?????.

  51. Welp! If you’re late for trends I’m sorta fucked, because I get my trend updates from your blog. Mostly.

    Also, since you asked, I haven’t had much time to search the internet (either). Probably because I’m too busy decorating my brand new calendar, now specifically tailored, to count down the days until your NYC book signing. And, no. I don’t think I’m a stalker. But even if I am, my shrink assures me I’m sure I’m the harmless type. I think.

    So no worries.

    And, I digress.

    If you’re not terrified, please let me know if/when you’re doing your book signing. This can help make my imaginary date seem a little less virtual. And probably keep me out of the looney bin (for another few months).

    You’re the bestest Jenny!

  57. Your haunted dollhouse is awesome, but you’re not alone in the dollhouse world. There is a HUGE online community of miniaturists, many of whom love making haunted dollhouses, bordellos, and candy shops that give you tooth decay just by looking at them.

    I loved your interview with the Naturalist, I kept laughing and then had to read it to my husband when he wanted to know what was so funny. I avoided the frog link, not sure if I want to have that in my head for days or not. Your dollhouse is awesome, the details are superb.

    So at work yesterday I saw an electronic “20 Questions” game, which just seems sort of sad.
    My coworker was telling me it’s actually kinda fun, and that even though he picked something dirty, it pretty much guessed it. So of course I had to try.

    Since I’m assuming “penis” isn’t actually in the database?

    I’m gonna go ahead and call the (f’reals, was way too hung over to make this shit up) answer of “wiener schnitzel” a win…. ~grin~

  91. So while reading your post today I had one of those random thoughts. Usually they’re the result of a couple of drinks (one of which inevitably spills itself somewhere around my mouse… ) but so far your blog is doing the trick. The thought… in case you were thinking Cheesus when is this boy going to get to a point… was that have you noticed that there are very little to no spam comments on your blog? Even yahoo articles get posts about why the *insert political party here* is f**ing up Amer’ca or where you can get your new Russian bride a “real” Louiss Vuitton purse (yes the second s was intentional). I’m kinda thinking that it’s because even the widow of the Nigerian with $300million in turquoise beads locked in a vault in their uncle’s vault (I’m seriously waiting for my share… I mean the check cleared their bank months ago!) is so impressed with your blog that SHE has to make a real comment of her own. Or maybe she’s just afraid you might spam her back. Just thinking….

    Ok back to your regularly scheduled programming.

  106. I just lost an hour and a half of my life going through the archives, reading old Blogess posts. I’ll never get that hour and a half back. The upside? Now I’m in a fantastic mood, and the world is looking like a hilarious place to be. The downside? I am supposed to be shopping for something to wear to my grandmother’s funeral. The “Knock, Knock, Motherfucker” shirt could get here by Wednesday, right? My family would be HORRIFIED but granny? She’d be laughing her ass off.

  107. This has everything to do with nothing, but did you know that all the dicey words are not valid on Words with Friends? Like they don’t exist or something. I am sure that whore is a word. AMIRIGHT?
    See everything to do with nothing. Not even Stocking.

    Hey don’t know if you’ve ever seen the site Cakewrecks (http://cakewrecks.squarespace.com/), but the writers are celebrating their 13th anniversary today and TWO commenters mentioned that the 15th anniversary is for Big Metal Chickens. I had to laugh. Twice.

    Still looking for my own BMC in middle Georgia… *sigh*

  115. Honestly…never considered you a “mommy blogger”.

    Other than that – the article about your haunted house was funny.

    You are even MORE famous now! YAY! :)

  116. Well this has absolutely nothing to do with the post but I need a place to vent. Apparently I am the b-i-t-c-h of the family because I do not want to fly or drive all the way across the country for my grandmothers funeral. Sorry but I just don’t like funerals.

  117. I looked but couldn’t identify anything from M. R. James’ short story “The Haunted Doll’s House”. Did I overlook it?, or I suppose the whole thing could be it. (If you haven’t read the story I could provide you with a copy.)

    Don’t know if you are looking for a theme song….but I think this is PERFECT for you!

  119. What I like best (read: hate most) about that “news” story is that is says you had “been pegged as simply a mommy blogger and humor writer” until we discovered that you built a kooky haunted dollhouse, and THEN, you finally become more than “simply” anything. Awesome. Who knew that the stuff a brilliant woman made her living doing was akin to inconsequential, while her random hobbies defined her?

  122. The Haunted Dollhouse is BRILLIANT!!!

  123. I totally bought the “Oh Crap Potty Training” but then found out that it requires 3 days of my undivided attention. After attempting it for 9 hours, I gave up and went to buy wine. My daughter peed in the wine aisle and shouted “OH NO MOMMY, LOOK.” I just pretended like it didn’t see it and proceeded to the checkout. I figured it was payback for those fucking mini grocery carts.

  124. I love the Jesus Christ Supershark t-shirt! Question: Is that inappropriate attire when in the company of my husband’s family? They are Jewish.

  125. Hi Jen – I haven’t ever commented on here, but I saw something that reminded me of you – (I am a regular reader – I have so far read back to page 70-ish!)

    I watched the frog rape video… and laughed until I cried. I almost peed myself. I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard for that long in forever. As soon my husband was home from work I told him he had to watch this video because it would blow his mind…. He laughed just as hard and as long as I had, until he was red in the face with tears streaming down. It takes a chimpanzee raping a frog to show a couple just how meant for one another they truly are. That’s romance.

  129. I hope I’m the first one to give you this idea because if not I’m going to be super-pissed. After looking at your awesome signs and t-shirts in the shop, I thought of a t-shirt design that I would totally buy from you. Picture it: “GO THE FUCK AWAY! I HAVE SHIT TO DO. (And no I don’t care if you’re a 2-year-old… or a stab-victim)”

    Why am I not making it myself you ask? I have shit to do.

  130. I hope this says something(?) about my parenting skills, but my 12-year-old daughter is begging for the tote bag to carry to her somewhat upscale, uptight middle school. Yes, we live in Portland.

    I found the cartoon the naturalist was referring to; it’s attached to an article about praying manti.

  132. You: “No one thinks this is funny but me.”

    Well, obviously, that’s not true at all. Your Beyonce story had me doubled over in pain laughing and, admittedly, crafting a few ‘metal chicken-y’ ideas of my own for my well deserving spouse. I love your writing style and would SO appreciate your input on my fledgling (well, it’s practically fetal) blog – http://www.olddognewtits.com.

    I’m 42, a mom of 2, and am looking into what it takes to get a new pair of, well, you get it, right? Anyway, my goal is keep it light-hearted, honest and entirely comical and to let other women know exactly what they’re in for with a boob job. I may do it. I may not. That’s what the blog is for. Science! Boob science, to be more specific. Would love your two cents.

    Please keep the hilarity coming. My lost soul needs it.

  133. This is why I keep my teenager daughters around rather than kicking them to the curb. Up until 2 weeks ago, I didn’t even know what a meme was and I swear I consider myself pretty damn smart. I mean, I read Time magazine front to back for god’s sake. But evidently, I’m really just short of your stuffed monkey. For their information alone, I’m willing to feed them.

  134. I LOVE the haunted Doll House. My only suggestion, because I know you value it, is it needs to be surrounded by a cemetery. But why stop there?….put the Haunted Doll House on a shelved table. In the cemetery section, because I know you are going to do that, you build a staircase under a tomb stone, which leads to the shelve under the DH. Now you have a whole new section to decorate UNDER the house…The Secret Cellar…Torture Chamber…..endless possibilities. Your Welcome.

  136. May I request that you do a more in-depth blog post about your Haunted Dollhouse in future? I think we’re all really interested in the whys and wherefores of how you did it. It is truly lovely.

  137. Okay. I’ve decided you’re cool. My sister has a small (compared to Beyonce, but still 3 feet), deadly, metal, turkey made from old oil cans on her porch. Well my friend Ali saw it, and she’s a fan of yours (and Beyonce obviously) and she sent us the link. Well, I’m hooked. You’re funny. Anyway, that dollhouse is spot on awesome and I have a funny dollhouse story to share. My best friend’s family had a regular (not Amityville Horror) dollhouse in their family room that we played with all through our childhood. We continued playing with it after we were getting stoned to the bejezus freshman year – we would arrange the dolls in all these pornographic crazy poses throughout the house. God I wish we had digital photography back then – it was so funny. Anyway, keep on keeping on.

    outraged by hipsters

    That shit is NOT NEW. The “horsemaning” thing? That trick was in this “photography for kids” book from like, the late 90’s, along with the one where you stand in a field with your hands out and have your friend stand in the distance so it looks like you have a tiny human in your palm? I always wanted to try it but I was a city kid, so I never had the open field. Or friends, for that matter.
    …cough.
    Anyway my point is, this comment is like five months late but I just found this blog and i fucking love it, but I saw this and I was like, “hipsters! you’re not that cool! i knew about that before you!” wait, is it actually a hipster thing? i assume so.
