If it's Tuesday this must be Houston

I’m still on tour and I’m in Houston today so come see me if you can!  (Tour details are right here.)  If not, you can just read the continuing chronicles of my best of series.  This post was from 2011…

Remember last week when I wrote about the sign I’d put up on my neighborhood bulletin board?

This one:

Well, I checked today to see if anyone else had responded to it, but IT WAS GONE. It had been taken down, presumably by someone who hates snake reunions and happy endings. It was disconcerting.

Luckily, I knew the perfect place to ask for help:

 

UPDATED: The missing sign lasted less than 24 hours before vanishing. It’s a losing battle, but it’s a losing battle I’m willing to fight. Mainly because I work from home and have an entire ream of copy paper at my disposal. I can do this all damn day, vandals.

  1. Still Funny!! People at home with reams of paper can have adventures too!

  2. OMG! That is funny. I have been reading your bloggs all morning! Love them…Started my day off just right. Read ” pick your battles” to my husband this morning….he cracked up laughing. 🙂 Thanks

  3. you are my hero 🙂

  4. This is the post that made me become a faithful blogstalker! It still makes me laugh everytime I read it!

  10. It’s a veritable Escher tessellation, only way funnier. Thanks for the morning snort. (Of laughter.)

  11. You inspire me. To leave random but amusing LOST signs around my neighbourhood. Is that a bad thing?

  19. Oh, Jenny, this still makes me laugh! I’m waiting for your book…………Amazon says it was delivered last night, but it wasn’t. But then their website says sometimes the delivery people mark it as delivered even when they really didn’t (WTF??). My husband is promising to stalk them until it comes so I can concentrate on studying for finals–I really think he’s promising it just to keep me quiet because all these exams are pushing me a little over the edge (because I am the insane kind of woman who goes back to school at 40+)……….it has to get here because the way I am going to celebrate the end of finals is that Thursday I am going to bundle all of my kids off to school and go back to bed with your book. (And definitely some chocolate………..and maybe a drink……………..) Ok, more studying now!

  20. Couid you just sprinkle some of your DNA from a crop duster every now and then? The world would be a much happier place.

  26. Good morning, Jenny! I finished the book last night! What. A. Blast! Remember (sure you do…) that I said I used to be crazy and that you would be fine? Well… turns out you already are! Yeah.. I know. Great news, huh?

    I am absolutely in love with your willingness to be yourself. (“I’m not like anyone.” **sniffle** I think a few of us are kind of also in love with Victor. What a wonderful man and worthy sparring partner….)

    Okay.. you MUST let us know if any of your former friends/neighbors/acquaintances/snobby toddlers on a diet moms show up for your book signing. Shoe’s on the other foot now, huh? (Okay, I don’t even know if they’re wearing shoes but I’m sure you get the picture….) **fucking amateurs**

    God bless Barnaby Jones Pickles. My condolences.

    I less than three you. <3

    Damn I sound like a stalker. Really I’m not.

  33. love your blog. love your book! my husband had to keep shushhing me last night because my laughing was evidently disturbing his ability to watch Diners Drive-Ins and Dives.. go figure.

  34. funny again the second time around. and you were AWESOME last night in san antonio. we love you jenny!!! :o) and sorry for being a bumbling idiot. i was a little starstruck.

  39. I am only 5 chapters into your book and love, loVE, LOVE IT! My Grandparents and two aunts lived on farms in Ohio and for whatever reason my parents always thought it would a good idea for us, my sister and I, to spend weeks with them during the summer. So, I guess what I’m implying is I can relate to some of your childhood. But other than being forced to do my cousins chores, milking a few goats, playing with the barn cats, building hay forts and riding around on a three-wheeler… I got nothing. But your book is wonderful! Thank you for sharing your life and for continuing to do so! Have fun on the rest of your book tour!

  40. I still love this post. It makes me wish we had neighborhood bulletin board. I would put one up myself, except where I live, the sign where you post signs would go missing…

    Sarah recently posted Honestly, It DOES Need a New Name….

  41. Still awesome!!! See you Wednesday!!!!

  42. I bought your book for me, me, me (almost all the other books I buy are for others). My daughter tried to steal it from me to read, just like the last two Harry Potter books, but I hid it and outwaited her as she had to go back to college. heh, heh, heh. Mom FTW.

    SO, you’re book came in the mail yesterday and it couldn’t have showed up at a more perfect time. I LOST it yesterday… not that I ever truly had IT, whatever IT is, but I lost it. I think I cried for a few hours straight and ended up throwing up from making myself so sick. And then my husband came home with a package in hand for me. It was your book! FINALLY! A bit of sunlight on a dark stormy day. I already added my bookplate to it… but it’s not quite the same as if I could come meet you on your book tour. Sadly, you’re coming no where near me. Seriously… Nashville is like a central location… I can drive to so many places in just 4 or 5 hours… St. Louis, Atlanta… Please consider adding another stop to your book tour so I can meet you. 😉

  44. I’m taking inspiration from this for Boycott Tuesday.
    <3

  45. LOL!!! This is priceless! So glad I found your blog!

  46. I’m willing to set up surveillance to keep watch on the sign. Mostly because I am a believer in justice, but partly because it’s Tuesday and really? I’m already over this week.

  50. You’re very good at trying to reunite people/animals/inanimate objects. You should moonlight as a reunioner or reunioneress. Whatevs. By the way, can you please try to reunite me with my self-esteem? I lost it somewhere at the gas station when I ripped my pants (at the crotch) and children in minivans laughed. Please.

  69. Your book came in the mail the other day. I love it but I can only read a few pages at a time because I can’t breath for laughing. Turns out it’s not great bed time reading. On a tangent I also had a raccoon. He often poured everything down the bathroom drain and hid in cabinets. You might walk into the kitchen only to have the silverware drawer slide out and see his little face peaking up at you. Thanks for the book and the laughter.

Same thing happened at the hotel bar where I continued reading although the bar tender and waitresses are now all ordering your book after I read a few excerpts to them. Do I get a commission??

  82. I have never commented before but Im so glad you shared this post. I forgot about it and remembered I laughed so hard the first time, and after reading it again I laughed so hard. I’ve already read it several times over again in the last 30 minutes just so I can laugh some more. It’s just one of those posts that is so funny to me and will get me laughing every time. Thanks and write more posts just like this! Haha. I’m going tomorrow to Barnes and noble to buy your book. Very excited.

    My problem is my husband is being such a “Victor” and won’t let me buy a second copy of the same book with the same signature in it. I even told him a weasel could sign in your place. Still a no-go.

Mom does not yet understand the significance of attending your book signing, but I haven’t shown her your post for Beyonce yet, either. My Mom also collects mouse skulls.

    Only sad thing was – no bookplate?! My husband got it for me – he pre-ordered as instructed from a link on this site, but still no signed bookplate :-((((( Your book tour is tooooo far away for us to come for an in-person sig ……… sigh.

    I have laughed so hard I have hurt! I have shared your Rambo soap story with countless people and they have since gone out immediately thereafter and bought your book for themselves.

    I just read, “It’s just that…Have you ever been homesick for someplace that doesn’t exist anymore? Someplace that exists only in your mind?” I lost it. It’s happened to my tiny hometown too. I didn’t know how to word it. Thank you for giving words to my emptiness. It’s a sad thing, not being able to show your child where you grew up because it’s doesn’t exist anymore.

    Congrats on your well deserved and hard earned success.

  130. Jenny! I am a huge fan, and have never commented before. But I must say I have read your entire blog, multiple times, as well as your book now, which I completely loved. Never ever stop, please? Your insanity compared to my insanity, while apples to oranges (or whatever the hell that means), at least makes me feel like my life isn’t completely a farce. Thank you for putting yourself out there. I’m honestly too exhausted from raising children and dealing with chronic pain to write (and I’m not a writer either, makes a big difference, not everyone can be a blogger), so yeah. I rambled. I’m sorry. Thanks again for the smiles.

  131. OMG…… My pre ordered book was delivered today! I’m so excited! Can’t wait for a few days off work so I can read it. I think this is the most excited I’ve ever been in my life to receive a book. Is that funny… or sad? I say its just wonderful!
    Love you, love your blog, can’t imagine not loving the book. Wish you were coming to Greenville, SC so I could have you sign my copy!

  132. I just had to show you this. It seems like it would be right up your alley. Can’t wait for your book to get here!

  146. Not only is the post HILARIOUS, but I love the title. A reference to one of my favorite movies of all time. Thank you for validating me.

  147. The first time I read this, I laughed ’til I cried. This time, I laughed until I snorted and the entire office wanted to know what I was doing. Thanks. Thanks a lot for ruining a perfectly good afternoon of pretending to work.

    I haven’t laughed to the point of tears in a very long time, and I’ve done it twice since I was introduced to your blog. This particular made my family think I had lost my mind! Thank you!!

  150. This literally made me laugh forever. You are amazing.

    Initially I thought I was suffering from de-j-vu, then I wondered if I was having another precognitive episode but a quick google showed that you’d posted this thread before on 4th October 2011.
    Now I feel cheated out of a superpower 🙁

  152. Still love this one, and I still think that’s my brother’s handwriting on the “that’s why it’s important to put collars on your pets” comment. ‘Fess up, Steve! I know it was you.

  153. I showed this to my 9 year old daughter because I thought it was hysterical and she loves irony. After finishing reading, she looked at me and asked about the author, “Is she a grown up?”

  155. I am now forbidden to read your blog in bed. And your book. And textsfromlastnight.com. And peopleofwalmart.com. Although while the sheer number of things I’m prohibited from doing in bed is declining, the quality of the things i do get to do in bed remains quite high.

    it’s exactly what you think it is, but get your mind out of the gutter. honestly your gramma would be aghast. AGHAST I TELL YOU.

    so there’s that.
