Friday Flip Offs

Friday Flip Off time again - as brought to you all by Gigi at KludgyMom.

To 24 hour bugs - especially the one that decided to plague me last Saturday night. It is a well known fact that i hate throwing up, i hate the spasms in your stomach and the pain that comes when you have nothing left in that stomach to bring up anymore. Therefore, i hate you... so flip off!

To Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister - how bout you try giving us a straight answer for once, instead of carefully worded spin? Or how bout you try taking the blame or the responsibility for some of your stuff ups and/or retractions, instead of palming off on someone else? I didnt vote for you last time and i wont vote for you this election either so... flip off!

To people who use their Facebook statuses as a weapon - that is, those people who use their statuses to show off, thus making other feel inadequate. Its just not nice. You can be proud of something, or happy about something, without being arrogant. Sometimes i read your update and want to say " yea? who cares.... flip off!

To the soup i made tonight - you were an fail. Not quite an epic fail, but you werent any good. I've re-read the recipe and i've read other recipes for the same soup - and i think you called for way too much stock. You ended up, somehow, both watery and lumpy at the same time, instead of thick and creamy. Consequently, i threw most of you out.... flip off!

And thats all i have this week - truth be told, i've had a pretty good week. Flynn's been much better, i havent been sick, we had a great day yesterday hanging out with our mums group friends and a great day today over at Grandma and Poppy's. I guess its nice to not have much to Flip Off! But if you do, feel free to join in the fun....


  1. I hear you on the facebook status is so annoying. Like soaking up the sun in the tropics...i don't care!

    Sorry about the one day stomach bug...those are no fun!

    Following you...

  2. competition on blogging drives me crazy too!! hope you feel better for the weekend!

  3. I posted about passive-aggressive facebook statuses a few weeks ago. Drives me nuts, nuts, nuts! Sometimes I think Facebook is totally toxic!

    I can't believe how long the stomach bug has been going around the seems like it's been consistent since January! Hope you are feeling better.

    And I feel your pain on the soup. nothing worse than working your butt off in the kitchen only to have a failed dish!

    come back next week!

  4. that damn flu has it my grandkids, and not my husband. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that I don't get it.

  5. I'm flippin nasty 24 hr bugs with ya. And I agree about FB status updates. I flipped those people a couple weeks ago. Hope ya feel better.

  6. Flipping off 24 hr bugs with you!

  7. Some of the FB statuses are crazy! Can't believe what some people say and post.

  8. I LOVE your Friday Flip-offs!

    And I agree with them all -- especially Kevin Rudd!

  9. FB statuses drive me mad, the bragging ones and the 'poor me, pay me attention' ones especially! Don't get me wrong, I love FB but sometimes I also want to say who cares!
