Freaky Friday Blog Swap!

Friday, February 3, 2012

Jena, the keeper of the wonder blog, Recently Roached, emailed me recently with a genius idea. The idea for a freaky Friday blog swap. Naturally, being the freak of nature that I am, I loved the idea. And so I am here today to share a few random tidbits about me-self with Jena's dear readers. And in return, Jena will be writing over on my blog, Crazy Ever After, dishin' the deets about herself. Trust me when I say that you don't want to miss that. So go check her out when you're done here.

Let Freaky Friday Facts begin...

Freaky Friday Fact #1:
I believe separate covers are the key to a happy marriage. The only way Jesse and I can co-exist in the same bed is if we sleep under separate covers. The first few times we attempted sleeping under the same covers was holy hell. Sure, it's fun to cuddle with your love and fall asleep in each other's arms. Scratch that. Actually it's torture. And it just doesn't work for us. Someone ends up getting a 'bow to the head or a knee to the groin. Add two puppies into the mix and it's a definite no-go. We were so happy when we came to this realization. A bedroom breakthrough of sorts. So separate covers it is. And thus far we've lived happily (albeit crazy) ever after.

Freaky Friday Fact #2: I have a thing. OK. I have a lot of things. But I am just going to share one of my things. I like my toilet paper to roll a certain way. And if I am at your house and your toilet paper is not rollin' the way I like it then I will take it upon myself to change it. I mean, I am sitting there doin' my thang, so it's no big inconvenience or anything. I am more than obliged to help you re-situate your Cottonelle. Is this anyone else's thing? Or am I all alone in this thing? Here. A visual for those of you who are completely confused by this thing of mine.


Freaky Friday Fact #3: I don't give a good gosh darn about the Pooper Bowl this weekend. I am sorry if you're a Giants or Pats fan, but really, I am not sorry. Also. I think Tom Brady is a douche canoe. But that is beside the point. Guess what I am excited about this weekend, though? The PUPPY BOWL. It may very well be the best thing ever created. And I cannot wait to let Bobo watch all the magic this year. His bed time is a little later this year so he gets to stay up and watch it. He's going to go ape for it. PS-it's on the Animal Channel this Sunday. Be there. We can totally live tweet throughout it if you want.

Freaky Friday Fact #4: If I see a black garbage bag on the side of the highway I automatically assume it's contents are dismembered body parts. I think there is a diagnosis for people like me. I am clearly not alright. But it makes me feel better when other people say that they think these thoughts too. Wait. How did we go from puppies playing football to dismembered body parts? I don't know. But I am about to talk about my missing bra next. Brace yourself.

Freaky Friday Fact #5: I currently only own one decent underwire bra (in addition to a drawer full of sports bras). I used to own two, but I lost it. Completely unacceptable. How does a married woman lose a bra? I might have an idea. I sometimes get annoyed with wearing my over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder, and will take it off and put it in my purse. My ability to take off my bra without taking off my shirt is as close to being a magician as I get. Anywho. I think this is what happened. But when I went to grab it out of my purse it was no  where in sight. Which then begs the question, "Who the crap steals a bra??!!?"

Alright. That's all she wrote, folks. Stop on over and see us at Crazy Ever After.

Thanks for having me, Jena. I love your blog, and I love you.


lo @ crazy ever after said...

Oh yeah. Hot sizzlin' fer sure. Thanks for having me, my way south neighbor.

Mrs. Robinson said... just take your bra off?! I mean... I'm not super shocked. But I'm super LOL-ing. I adore Lauren. :)

Emily Hope said...

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA....Did I write these facts?

1. I am a strong believer in separate covers. Otherwise no one is happy. Period. We'll be in separate beds in no time.

2. This irks me too! And hand towels that aren't hung straight. Super annoying.

3. I am gullible is the puppy bowl for realz?

4. Do you really think that? Because I DO TOO. Except I think it's either a human, a puppy, or a cat depending on the bag size.

5. You should VLOG about these magician like skillz. Help a sista out.

Amira said...

Ahhh, little Lo - I just love her. I have to admit I take my bra off every chance I get, and throw it around the house. You'll find them under pillows, on our dining room table, on the floor. And I'm right there with ya on the toilet paper and Tom Brady :-)

Erin said...

Ok, I love the Super Bowl... but had TOTALLY forgotten about the puppy bowl until now! What time?!!? I MUST watch that too :)

Ashley said...

I am the same way with the toilet paper - I thought it was commen sense... apparently not... hahaa
(I commented that I am now following you as well!) - feel free to pop by and say hello sometime!!

Kodi said...

Haha so Bella will definitely be watching the Puppy Bowl this year! How cute!

And I always see the same thing when I pass a trash bag on the side of the road, especially because I drive a lot of back, country roads. Sometimes I even THINK about stooping to check, so if I find something I can be on the news.. I never do though, lol.

And I think we should have our own super bowl about how fast we can take off our bra without taking off our shirt.. I've got mad skills.

Meg @ said...

...hopped over from Crazy Ever After...

@Lo - how the heck did I not know you were a separate covers lady too?! We swear by it! + I absolutely cracked up about the over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder!

Digger said...

OK … this is freaky!!
1-I have the same Toilet Paper issue!! And if Hubs or one of the boys do it wrong. I will search them out and make them fix it. LOL. I have no issues putting the toilet seat down. (I'm the only girl in a house full of boys, majority rules, however I've only had to do this a few times because Hubs insists that our boys put it dow) but if the TP is wrong, all hell breaks lose!
2- I learned yesterday that the superbowl was this weekend… I know… I just don't pay attention and it's not like they announce it on Boomerang or Cartoon Network, so I don't ever know what's going on in the sports world. Don't know, don't care.
3- I have the same issues with black garbage bags. AND my dad is a roadside shopper so he stop at EVERY. SINGLE. BAG he sees and I was always certain he was going to throw it in the back of the truck and then we were going to get pulled over and arrested because we had a body in the back. LOL!!!
Seriously learn something new about you every day!! In fact today has been a jackpot of information! :) LOVING IT!!! :)

hahaha, "I mean, I am sitting there doin' my thang, so it's no big inconvenience or anything. I am more than obliged to help you re-situate your Cottonelle"--DYING over here! So funny!:)

Lauren said...

haha! love thist post! I'm headed over to your blog now to check out Jena's post...and all the rest of yours as well!

My husband has the same toilet paper issue!

Stephanie said...

HAHA! This is awesome.

I constantly tell my husband that there are body parts in abandoned cars and garbage bags. He always just rolls his eyes.

And Tom Brady is a douche canoe. : )

marie said...

I agree wholeheartedly about the toilet paper. My husband ALWAYS does it wrong and I have to redo it every time.

Mrs. Pancakes said...

i am not sure were we are with the tiolet paper...we might be over and under!

lo @ crazy ever after said...

The puppy bowl is a for real thing, my sweet little Canadian pen pal. :)

Mr. Taylor and his Lady said...

hahahahhaa, you are too funny girl. i totally think the same thing when i see a black garbage bag on the side of a road. i'm sure there is a diagnosis for people like us, ha

jennifer blair said...

Hahah! I loved this. I am totally like that with the toilet paper too! I'm glad someone else does it the RIGHT WAY too! :) I don't care about this game either...seriously could care less!

Berni said...

haha this was so funny to read!

aliciamarie911 said...

I seriously thought that I was the only one that made their husband sleep under a separate cover! I CANNOT sleep under the same one with him. It just does NOT work!

I, too, am VERY picky about my toilet paper. I have often told my husband that he was banned from replacing the roll because he ALWAYS puts in on backwards!

Superbowl blows, I won't be watching it.

I wore sports bras for so long that when I bought a new under wire bra my husband couldn't believe that I actually had nice boobs because they're always squished by the sports bras.

Laura and Sarah said...

This was such an awesome post!!!

The two covers is SUCH a good idea!! It will save me from future cold nights. Thanks!!

My gf is the exact opposite with the TP situation... she says its more messy your way haha. I... really don't mind, I just let her do her thing!

Douche Canoe?? I'm following your blog simply because of that phrase haha!! xo

And finally, OMG to the body parts... I'm similar in that we live in London on the river, and every time I see a car with an open trunk, and I can't see what's in there, I'm CONVINCED someone's dumping a dead body. Like the British mafia or something. I'm sure that's a thing.

Loved it!!

Laura xo

Miranda said...

LOVE the puppy bowl...i get sucked in every year! you wouldn't think you would watch that for that long but you just can't stop :)

Nagehan said...

OMG I love this idea. I have a lot of freaky facts myself. Seriously. It's scary.

Lindsey said...

1 - That is such a great idea! I should have thought of that.
2 - I'm totally with you. It's so annoying the other way!
4 - I'm happy to read that I'm not the only one with a twisted mind.
5 - It's hard to find a nice bra!!!
