8/13/10

It came without ribbons, it came without bows!

I am hiding over here today, giving a little unsolicited advice about the event parents LOVE most; back to school! Feel free to head over and say hi! (I'm hiding from that crazy Anonymous Chinese commenter who won't stop stalking me and apparently wants me to have his children. I've told him over and over again I don't have a uterus, but he's a persistent little bugger.)


In the meantime, I DID manage to make it through the MRI yesterday, with a little help from a tiny orange pill. More good news to come, I'm sure.

And before you scoot over to where I'm hiding, this ought to put a smile on the face of every parent.

Back to school,,,*shudders* so glad that time of my life is over. Children turn into monsters in the school supply aisles, the clothing aisles and the check-outs. NOT the most wonderful time of the year... ha ha... so glad Staples makes light of it.

We're finished week one already. You should see the dragging butts.

I didn't realize they still made hand crank pencil sharpeners. Good thing I stopped by. Always learn something new in these parts.

I used to love/hate back to school.
No more sleeping late, no more trips, I had fun with the kids being home. I had my second child when I was 22 so you can tell, I was not the most mature mom on the block. But I did , over the years, start to appreciate having my days to myself ..
Those days go by too quickly.

Dawn said...

That is my all-time favorite commercial. Sheer genius! And that was before I had kids...

After all these years I finally know why my parents seemed so excited and energized every year on the last week of August.

My oldest was watching with me, he didn't think it was funny. Heh heh.

Missy said...

Back to school is glorious!

Cheryl D. said...

Glad you had the MRI. My daughter doesn't go back for another 4 weeks. Yikes!

CSY said...

Mine started school yesterday (8/12)...I'm SO glad school is here, even if they aren't!

NadiaEcho said...

Oh bleck, back to school. No more sleeping in...At least I have an excuse for my Mom to buy me tons of clothes :)

Anna See said...

Yuck. Not looking forward to back to school.

Yay. Looking forward to GREAT news about your MRI.

SSP said...

bwahahahahha - this one, and the fed ex cave man commercials are my FAVORITES. I don't have kids, but it means the gym is NOW quiet and peaceful and the pool is marginally less pee-ful! wha ahoooooo

Robin Dodd Photography said...

GOD.. THANK YOU!!! Shawn was telling me about this commercial.. and I've never seen it. I LAUGHED SO LOUD and am still laughing.. That is so me... or was.. at Wal Mart last week.. I am reposting..

Mo Diva said...

i have a little orange "pill" too... its in a tropicana package which made me think "OH ORANGES!" and i put one in my mouth and what do i get? Mint.
Yo Tropicana, thats soooo wrong.

I hope your orange pill was better! but out of curiosity did they offer you the red pill and the blue pill too?? considering taht you are still here, i think you chose the right pill! You go girl!

a Broad said...

I forgot to mention that I also like little orange pills, and blue ones too ..

LegalMist said...

heh hehe heh -- good one.

I'm hoping for good results from that MRI. Hang in there.

Gigi said...

Off to check out where you are hiding today - but wanted to tell you, I'm thinking of you. Glad you made it through the MRI. When do the results come in?

Alana, Author of Domestically Challenged said...

LOVE this commercial. Love it. glad you made it through the MRI.

Mellodee said...

Sometimes ad agencies are right on the money. Just watching those two kids dragging their feet, and you know exactly how they feel!

Teresa Dawn said...

I remember when this first started airing on TV... hard to believe it was like what? 15 years ago?

Dawn said...

A week ago, I was those kids!!
My classroom is al set up and ready to go... so now I'm more like the dad :)

My word verification was hyper...coincidence??? I think not :)

J.J. said...

That commercial cracks me up!

My MRI pill was white but it "got the job done". ; ) I'm crossing my fingers, toes and eyes for an excellent result for you!

Joanie said...

Super sorry I haven't kept up with you lately. MRI? Oh Lord, I'm going to pour over your site until I get to the bottom of this!

Bodaciousboomer said...

Hooray! School is near which means fall is near! And we don't have kids to deal with anymore. Woo-Hoo!

Sorry to gloat.

Sorry about the duplication. I've been away a bit as you can see.

CatLadyLarew said...

One of the best ad campaigns, ever!

Vodka Logic said...

Love that ad.. if parents like back to school, how do teachers handle it.. you "lose" yours but gain a classroom full.

SkylersDad said...

That is a really great ad! Your column over at the other side is very heart warming, I wish Skyler could have had you for a teacher.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Continued good thought on the MRI results. Glad the test itself wasn't so bad.

This is one of my all time favorite commercials and I don't even have kids!

姊夫在內地包二奶,我們建議大姊趕緊大陸抓姦
但是大姊一直顧慮而遲遲不願意大陸抓姦...
原本姊夫一個月都會回台灣一次,現在卻已經好幾個月沒有回家了;
面對這情形,大姊終於下定決心委託徵信社大陸抓姦
半個月後徵信社成功的大陸抓姦,姊夫也因為心虛理虧而與二奶分手了;
經過大陸抓姦的事件之後,大姊夫妻的關係總算是穩定下來了!

現在很多徵信公司標榜女子偵探女子偵探真的有比較好嗎?
其實女性本身具有體貼、細心的特質,
能夠觀察得更細微,女子偵探不僅能夠讓委託人更加信賴,
經過專業訓練的女子偵探破案能力更是一流!
也難怪,現在許多委託人都指定想要女子偵探服務!

外遇---偷來的時間、偷來的伴侶、偷來的愛情
或許新鮮刺激,或許瘋狂美好,但這一切,終究是偷來的…
外遇傷害了一個幸福的家庭
或許你會說:問題其實早已存在,外遇並不是傷害的唯一因素
但是內心深處其實你知道,這只是外遇的藉口!
建築在傷害別人之下所得到的愛情,終究難以幸福…

老公總是說他在加班,但是薪水卻沒有相對的增加,反而支出變得更多,
於是我開始展開外遇調查行動;
我趁著老公睡覺的時候,先對手機進行外遇調查看是否有不尋常的通話,
沒想到手機竟然設定密碼!
於是我外遇調查的行動只好轉向發票明細,
果真,飲料與食物常常都是買兩人份的,我還看到了溫泉旅店的發票!
種種外遇調查的結果,讓我知道老公果然偷吃;
雖然外遇調查讓我知道老公外遇,但是我明白如果戳破反而可能弄巧成拙,
於是我請好友夫妻製造在旅店巧遇的假象,讓老公心虛的自己結束外遇!
