And I'll need an address to send that bottle of vodka!

Here's a kids joke:

A turtle was walking down an alley in New York when he was mugged by a gang of snails. A police detective came to investigate and asked the turtle if he could explain what happened.

The turtle looked at the detective with a confused look on his face and replied “I don't know, it all happened so fast.”

So I visited one of your advertisers (be careful about asking folks to click, goggle whipped my butt over that) and I hope they pay you a ton and you send me an I pad

I work at a middle school in a decent sized city. Some of the calls from parents this week have been pretty amusing:

Parent: "My daughter has Spanish 1 on her schedule. I want her to learn French instead."

Me: I'm sorry; our school doesn't offer French; it only has Spanish as a foreign language.

Parent: "Well, I don't want her to learn Spanish. I want her to learn French."

Me: Um. I'm sorry. We don't have French here.

Parent: click (hangs up phone)

*********

Just one of the many fun phone calls today!

thedickdujour said...

I tried the Vonage app. It seems pretty cool although I'm not sure what the difference is between an app and a program. What about you?

David said...

If I don't have an iPad 2, how can I install the app? How can I install the app if I don't have an iPad 2?

That reminds me of Pink Floyd's "If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any pudding! How can you have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?!"

This nostalgic moment brought to you by Vonage and Vodka Mom!

David said...

How to lose 5 pounds in a week? You can do it, just keep at it, eat right and lots of exercise ... every little bit helps. Try taking the stairs, parking a little farther away from stores, etc.

One thing that works for me is before I eat, I drink a large glass of water. Then, if I'm still hungry, I won't eat as much as I would have. I've been told that hunger and thirst are very similar sensations and our bodies can't always tell the difference between the two.

It's better to eat 5-6 small meals than 2 or 3 regular meals each day.

I thought an iPad was some kind of bandage fo your eye.

Spend 12 hours/day on your iPad and you'll forget to eat. Keep it up for the week and you'll lose 5 lbs.

Guess who cut her hair in class today? Our Frankie. She swears she didn't - I'm just amazed with the evidence staring her in the face that she could look up at me with those pretty brown eyes and deny it.
I'm disausted!

How to lose five pounds in a week?

Maybe a medically induced coma?



I once lost 195 pounds overnight. I divorced him. Don't think it'd work for the five though.

won said...

Paid your oil (splashed with gold) bill.Check's in the mail!

Since you trusted me on the following thing...you'd trust me here, right?

won said...

I'll take your dog for a walk tomorrow at noon...we'll walk to buy you a bottle of vodka.

Kill two birds with one stone. But don't worry. Your dog is safe with me ;)

won said...

#7? See above.

*Shall I get some lemons, too?

won said...

#8 - buy you a grill?

You just made me laugh.

won said...

#9 - I hope I made you laugh.

Actually, my ego hopes I made you laugh.

Okay, how about this? It's a true story:

29 yr old woman who is single and is a foster/adoptive mom. She has 5 kids in her care-all different shades of skin. She was at the fair with them with the 1 and 2 yr olds in a double stroller, a 7 wk old in a front pack, a 4 and a 5 yr old walking beside her.

A woman walked up to her and asked, "All different fathers?" To which she answered, "Actually, I don't know any of their fathers." Woman walked away aghast.

Linda M. said...

Holy Moly, I've never seen so many comments! All for an iPad??? Maybe these are from a bunch of people like me who end up buying their CHILDREN electronic items like laptops, cell phones, computer towers, all while carrying a no-data plan flip phone, and surviving on a used laptop.... Oh well, if I didn't make ya laugh, I can stop by with a bottle of vodka!

Hope your first day tomorrow is awesome! Mine was good except for the teary-eyed kid who got on the wrong bus at the end of the day, and then couldn't remember my name so a teacher could help her find me.

Hope my voice recovers by tomorrow morning!! : )

I have an Android phone so I couldn't use the app on mine, but my sister has downloaded and we both used it to say 'Hello' to our uncle in England. Great app! Would totally use it again.

I voted on babble, from my computer, my husband's computer, and my phone, & my ipod. Laugh at me (or cry with me) over trying to unpack a 5 bedroom house while shuttling 4 of my 5 kids to & from school & preschool every day, & my 2 yr old doing damage (ripping veneer strips off the cabinets, for example) faster than I can keep up!! Grapefruit martini in your honor tonight!

I am always so intimidated when people say make me laugh. I feel like my life is on the line or something... okay here's a story for you...

My first day back to teaching was Monday - all day professional development. What was it about? They were teaching us about something that has not yet been released by the state for our subject area. That's right. We spent 6 hours "learning" about and "discussing" a document THAT DOESN'T EXIST. Oh. JOY. :)

Tip for losing 5 pounds in a week.

Cut out all alcohol, soda, and candy and walk as much as possible.

Panda said...

Another way to lose 5 pounds would be to switch to an all bamboo diet. It works for me. ;)

Casey Freeland said...

Well I absopositividefinitelutely subscribe to your blog, so I guess I'm in. Also, I can help with five pounds, but it's temporary. :)

You may lose 5 pound in a week by eating nothing but ice cubes, I don't think it would be very enjoyable.

mfawritergirl said...

I have subscribed! And tried the app! And drank the bottle of vodka when I realized I didnt have your address, while walking a dog. Man, I'm exhausted. An iPad may help me keep track of my life better :)

viridian said...

PS. I voted for you at blooger. Who are all these other bloggers?

Kris said...

All right, I never enter stuff, but I just can't resist this time. :)

When I wanted to lose 5 pounds a week, I got a dog.

That didn't work, and the dog thought I was his mama, so we got him a sister.

Now I walk a mastiff-shepherd AND a great Dane every morning. I'm telling you, the pounds are MELTING off me! Those two can MOVE.

RottenMom said...

How to lose five pounds in one week:

1. Check out son's biology study guide for the new school year.

2. Have discussion about dissecting a pig, and the eyeball of something icky.

3. View photos of something icky being dissected.

4. Think of icky photos every time you want to put some thing in your mouth this week.

Works like a charm, especially if you are gifted with a super sensitive gag reflex.

Back to school needs its own song, It's the Most Wonderful time of the year. Let's get that re-written!

Herby said...

How to lose 5 pounds in a week??? Hmm... Haven't you seen the Slimfast and Special K diets?
Eat and/or drink the low cal stuff for breakfast and lunch and have a sensible dinner. Sadly vodka isn't sensible. Well, if it's the only dinner maybe but you may snack while drinking.

Herby said...

It's 5 o'clock somewhere!

Shelly said...

fossette said...

Okay, my assistance is as follows:

In order to enter, you have to do any of the following!!!

1. Try the app at the Vonage home page and let me know here if you tried it.

Done, tried it, liked it, bought the tee shirt :D



2. Subscribe to my blog over there. I can't tell if you DID, but I'll trust you if you say you did.

Already subscribed, how could I not be? You're the funniest kindergarten teacher this side of Oregon.

3. Vote on Babble (you knew I would.)

Done so many times they filed stalking charges against me :)

4. Tell me how to lose five pounds in a week.

www.myfitnesspal.com - try it, I think you'll be plesantly surprised. I started July 19 and am down 22.4lbs with only another 600 to go (*ugh). I'll even be your friend and send you fake cheerful messages and encourage periodic treats in the form of dairy queen ice cream cones :)

5. Pay my oil (splashed with gold) bill.

As soon as my powerball ticket is a winner I will not only pay for the oil splashed with gold, I'llpay for a whole new HVAC system and a sexy, shirtless man to install it very very very very slowly.

6. Take my dog for a walk every day at noon.

Can I delegate this one? I don't do poop since I got rid of diapers.

7. Send me a bottle of vodka.

Tito is my best friend. I should have sent you some long ago.


8. Buy me a grill.

See the oil reply..applies here too, though I think it takes 2 shirtless, sexy men to assemble a grill, no?


9. Make me laugh.

I have a friend. He is VERY skinny. Yesterday he was telling me about another guy and described him as "skinnier than me", to which I promptly replied "so you're telling me he's invisible?".

Further into the conversation someone else at the table told this guy he was so thin he could probably stay dry in the rain and I added "so long as you're standing under a power line".

Maybe not as funny in text, but someone at the table spewed diet pepsi from their nostrils. :D

fossette said...

Did I mention the time a classmate of mine wrote an essay for Black History Month on Babe Ruth?

Joanna Jenkins said...

WOW, awesome giveaway.

I checked out the app and the best way to lose five pounds is to weight yourself wearing your heaviest winter coat one day and nothing the next. It works for me :-)

Well, I went to their home page and checked out the sample pages of their app, but I don't have an iPhone (WAH!), so I guess I'll have to win the iPad in order to try the app out! It looks awesome, and I'd love to call my friends in Chile and Germany! Thanks for the chance to enter!

PsychMamma said...

I'll be over to walk your dog tomorrow and every day until the contest ends. If I win, I'll keep doing it for a year.

I think the only time I ever lost 5 pounds in one week was on that weird cabbage soup diet. I got really tired of cabbage soup, but I did lose the weight. Sadly, it found me again later, though.

PsychMamma said...

What kind of vodka is your favorite? Will any kind do? Can I bring it when I come to walk your dog?

P.S. Where do you live, again?

Thank you for cheering me up, Vodkamom. This is my 5th night with no electricity, and with three kids who haven't gone back to school yet, it's been tough. Sorry I couldn't make you laugh, but you've cheered ME up. An iPad would make me happy, too, so please consider me for that. Thanks again!
