I honestly thought it was Saturday until about 10 minutes ago.

I spent the day vaguely naked in a cemetery (more on that later) and then my sister yelled at me for not having the weekly wrap-up published and I was all “That’s because it’s Saturday” but turns out it’s actually Sunday.  This is basically how my whole fucking week went.  But enough about that.  Now it’s time for the weekly wrap-up of shit-I-was-doing-when-I-wasn’t-here reinventing bear-fear-based advertising and getting hit on by Netflix.

The it-feels-like-I've-used-this-graphic-before Edition

    This week on my sex column (which is satirical and vaguely safe for work if your boss isn’t a douche-canoe):

    This week on Good Mom/Bad Mom on the Houston Chronicle:

    This week on the internets:

    • I sold my possibly haunted, broken camera for $501. I know. I don’t understand either.  But another blogger bought it and she’s quite funny so I told everyone on twitter to go see what kind of a person would pay $501 for a broken camera and a cross-dressing lego and I BROKE HER BLOG. True story.  And it took her like 30 hours to get the server back up and as soon as it was up I was all “Hey, remember that girl who I told you to go read and then I accidentally crashed her server?  Well, it’s back up!” and then I crashed her server again.  I swear to God I did not do this on purpose. Then she was all “Stop helping” and so I did. I think her site’s back up now and you can visit it but it’ll probably crash again so maybe go in turns.  If your name starts with an A you can go now.  Everyone else wait until next week.

    This week on shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:

    2. re: Good Mom/Bad Mom – You are not a terrible mother. You did, however, miss an incredible opportunity to try and pass of tubes of Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough as a brand name for “scratch”. 🙂

    3. Saw Karen’s blog post. You rock a mean red dress, sistah. (PS: Had a known how much publicity and traffic a $501 haunted camera and cross-dressing Lego generates, I’d have bought the damn thing myself … if I had $502 to spare, that is … but since I’m unemployed, that probably wouldn’t have been a popular move ’round these parts.)

    6. Thank God there are no more sweaty balls during my pickle surprise. The world is right again.

    7. I HATE it when I don’t know what day it is. Everyone in the newsroom looked at me like I was nuts, well more so than normal, when I yelled out, “Oh my God-it’s Wednesday, not Thursday-that’s awesome.” It’s a good thing I cover society stuff rather than hard news.

    9. Oh shit that means it’s Monday here. Must turn off lap top, throw jumper over pjs, wake up kids, dress them in slightly damp school uniforms, whilst shoving bread in their mouth (they can use their fricken imagination and pretend it’s toast), throw money at them to buy tic tacs from school canteen for lunch, drive them to school late, be given the “you are a piss poor excuse for a mother” look from judgemental school desk admin bitches and wait in the car park for child services to turn up. Thanks so much Bloggess for fucking with my mind. Sheesh. Do you think child services will take my “it’s all the Bloggess’s fault” excuse. You now officially owe me a medical/Bloggess certificate to get me out of this shit, or at least cough up the bail money.

    10. No, you are *not* a terrible mother. You are, however, a certified server assassin. And, according to the nice lady who bought your camera (and the Legos), “a vortex of crazy.”

      Yep, that sounds about right.

God girl, after the batshit crazy day i had yesterday ( it would actually have made a best seller if it was written…maybe I’ll contact Diablo Cotey or someone cool…like YOU!) anyhow, I really needed to read this post today and I thank you … after the post i just wrote, I now feel great after hearing about other mothers who are fuglyhotmesses too!

    15. All I can picture now is Doctor Starlight Smashhammer rubbing Fresh Balls on some merman, and then running away as he chases her with the weird octo-vibe, wearing the oral sex light. I hope I don’t have nightmares tonight.
      P.S. I’ve always wanted to marry my Tivo. If you and Netflix get together, you will pave the way for us.

    17. You know how Ted Kennedy did all these awesome things but when he died lots of people said, oh yeah, the guy who drowned that girl in the river when he was drunk and crashed his car. I feel like whatever I do from here on out, I will be the lady whose blog was crashed by the bloggess. I’m going to have to invent a flying car and even then I will never outlive this. Effing server.

    18. You crashing Bite the Bedbugs kind of ruined my life – or like a day or a couple of hours or something. My BFF was traumatized when the replacement goldfish she bought for her 2-year-old daughter in order to avoid a discussion about death while BFF was entertaining family members from out of town promptly leaped to its death in the middle of her 2-year-old daughter’s bedroom rug.

      So, I was all, “OMG. You know what would make you feel better? I just read the best dead goldfish story. EVER. I’ll totally send you the link.”

      And then the motherfucking Bloggess crashed the site.

      Do you know how hard it is to get my BFF to read a blog I say is awesome? It takes a frigging goldfish suicide.

    20. Actually I wasn’t quite sure if today was Sunday or Saturday myself. Having an extra day off from work kinda did it, but I’m sad it’s already Monday (almost)…

      or as a tool to attract attention to your site

      “fooled ya! now that you are here….”

    30. I am honestly excited about the fact that one of the weird things I emailed you made it to your top ten list. My life isn’t exactly complete, but that totally contributed to it being completed by at least .5%.

    44. “Pickle Surprise” is one of the earliest appearances (in archived video footage) of Lady Bunny, Wigstock founder and one hell of a drag queen. There’s another, even earlier, recording of her at a drag competition with RuPaul as a host. The earing-ripping climax where she brawls for the title will grant you a memory you’ll treasure for years, as well as an important life lesson: don’t get between Lady Bunny and something she wants very badly, like corndogs or first place.
