Friday ( the 13th ) Flip Offs

Thank Gawd its Friday - and thank Gigi over at KludgyMom for Friday Flip Offs, that wonderful end to the week where we get to rid ourselves of all our frusturations and annoyances, just in time to enjoy the weekend!


To the cold that developed from last weeks sore throat - screw you man. I told you last week that i knew you were coming and i wasnt too impressed about it, yet you showed up anyway. Because of you i've been snuffling and sneezing and coughing all week and now Flynn is a little snotty-booger too. Oh, and we also had to miss swimming on Monday for the second week in a row. So not happy Cold. So not happy. Why don't you take your disgusting germy self and just FLIP OFF!

To the friend who sent me a text at 10:38pm last night - thanks for waking me up. Apparently you did not remember that i am the mother of a 7 and half month old that has decided it is now time to change sleep patterns and is now waking up 4 times a night - AGAIN - and that, thusly, i need to go to bed early. Also, you apparently thought i would want to see another photo of your arse. Umm, no. So not only did you manage to wake both me and Mick up but it wasnt even for anything important. And the worst part was i'd gone to bed at 9:30pm and had only just managed to get to sleep when you texted me - and then it took me another good 45 minutes to get back to sleep. So i didnt actually get to sleep til around midnight, Flynn woke briefly at 1:15am and then wanted a feed at 3:30am, and wanted to get up for the day at 5:30am. So whats that? About 5 hrs sleep? Which is more than some mums get but if it hadnt been for you, dear friend, and your fishnet clad arse ( thanks for the image by the way ... drinking before you went out, huh ? ) i could have had 6 hrs sleep. Take your stupid photo and your stupid late night text and FLIP OFF!

To the book i borrowed from the library on Wednesday - i managed to read your first 8 pages and then.....i decided you suck. Normally i'm willing to read at least the first chapter but not with you. See your cover appealed to me, and your blurb made you sound interesting, but in those first 8 pages you made so many references to various characters and concepts in your imagined mythology that i was put off by it. You get what i mean? If your going to be a fantasy story - you know, in the vein of, say , " Stardust " or " Harry Potter " you need to either ease your reader into the intricacies of your fantasy world, or write yourself a prologue that explains at least the basics. Just launching into King This, Prince That, this shadowy political entity, that ancient circle of magic blah blah blah.... its just off putting. So, i've put you down after 8 pages and its back to the library with you where you can FLIP OFF!

Frusturations out. Happy Friday the 13th people!

  1. My mom has a tendency of texting me really late at night or super early. Like dumb stuff. "where's the baby?" "Um SLEEPING! It's 1 am/6 am" GO TO BED. Drives me crazy.

  2. Yeah, that's the worst to be woken by a text. Just happened to me the other day too. Worse when you have little ones who wake up before the butt crack of dawn.

  5. A cold in the summer...no fun! I used to have a friend that would call me around 11:00pm, she claims she forgot about the time difference, which was only an hour! I have 3 kids...by that time, I'm dead asleep and if I'm awake, I don't feel like talking! lol! Good List.

  7. Late night texts are never fun. I usually only get them when I forget to turn the volume on my phone off and it wakes me, my other half, and my little one up.

  12. I have a friend who used to text late at night until I sent her a very curt response. I think people without kids just don't think, doesn't help when you've been woken up though!

  13. Somebody texted you a pic of their ass? That's just wrong on so many levels, never mind that you are sleep deprived!
    As for the novel, you need to tell us the title so we don't try to piece all the parts together. I don't have time for that, I'm too busy trying to plow my way through that boring and self-indulgent Eat Pray Love!

  14. Wow...awoken by an arse text, that sucks! I hate getting texts, mostly because I feel obligated to text a reply, and I HATE texting. Why can't people just send me an email? Why is that so dang hard? Sigh. Loved your Friday Flip Offs though!

  15. I had a friend who would call SUPER early in the morning. Like, 6AM. I ignored her calls one day. I called her later that afternoon and she said, "Why aren't you answering? You have a baby. You should be up already." I said, "Yeah, if my baby decides to sleep until 8 in the morning, I'm sleeping until 8 in the morning. Stop calling so freaking early." She never called before 9AM again.

  16. I don't understand why someone thinks its a good idea to send an arse picture at ANY time. And they've done it before??? Weird...
