Miley, Blogs, Asher And Housework

Wow. This is actually a news story? Isn't there a war going on? Did you even notice the teen queen's absence from Twitter? If so, we can't be friends, sorry. Oh and now Daddy Cyrus is "urging" Miley to return to Twitter. GAG!

Has anyone noticed a trend in mean blogs? Like people who used to be fresh and funny and just the right amount of saucy and you loved them and then they just turned angry and hateful but not the funny kind of hateful? I don't count because this has never been a puppy-dogs-and-rainbows blog, I've always been hateful, it's my niche, that's what I'm good at. I'm talking about blogging nothing but rants about blogging and how much you hate blogging and how much you hate bloggers and how much bloggers suck at blogging. You might be in need of a new prescription for your happy pills, my dear. We're bloggers - by definition we are attention whores. Deal with it.

Asher's on a new kick. Everyone's a monkey. For instance, Asher, do you want some apples? No, monkey! Asher, wanna take a bath? Yeth, monkey! When I tickle him; 'top it, monkey! You're the only monkey I know, kid!

Gawd, I'm sick to death of sweeping floors! I honestly sweep our kitchen and dining room a minimum of 4 times a day:

*After breakfast when the kids somehow manage to dump crumbs from banana bread or donuts or waffles all over the floor.

*Right before Mr comes home for lunch so it at least looks like I've done something all morning.

*Right before Mr comes home from work, also for the above reason.

*And finally after dinner when approximately 1/5 of the food I placed on the kids' plates ends up on the floor.

No, the dog is no help. She only eats off their plates, that food hasn't touched the floor. She wouldn't lower herself to eat off the floor...

I actually hadn't noticed Miley's MIA status, which means we're still friends, yes! And, I've never been a reader of the sweet blogger blogs, everyone eventually cuts the crap and gets all nasty. I appreciate those who start off that way, then I'll never be disappointed. Plus, reading the nice girl blogs makes me feel all ugly and sinful. No one wants to feel ugly (I guess sinful is ok sometimes). And, you are so not hateful, you're just honest and funny and that's why you're cool:)

Your first paragraph re Miss Cyrus *yawn*

I have to admit, E! has kept me abreast of the latest important developments of Miley's twitter habits (God, I'm lame).

And, I'm glad to hear that someone else does a quick sweep over before the hubs gets home so it looks like we haven't just been sitting on our ass all day...or maybe that's just my paranoid stay-at-home-mom view :)

So glad to say I've not noticed Miley's absence! Ugh Miley and her father for that matter.

I don't think you're the least bit hateful! Honesty is not hatefulness! And to those who bitch about blogging.. Here's an idea, don't read them and don't write them, problem solved.. Same thing with sex and violence on your t.v. or with the movies at the theaters, songs on the radio.. Who are these people that lack such simple motor skills that involve no more than a click or a push of a button???
My grandson likes to call his Uncles "poop".. Hi Uncle Poop, c'mon Uncle Poop let's go.. Having raised 4 and being MiMi to 2, I still have no idea what-so-ever about what goes on in a kids brain..

Someone hacked my Twitter account yesterday and I can't figure it out.

Mean blogs are bad :-(

Monkeys are fun! Hopefully the monkey phase will pass quickly.

I should sweep that often but I don't. Our upstairs only get swept about twice a month. Yikes! At least no one brings food up there.

I could give a shit what Miley does.

I'm dying to know what bloggers you are referring to!!!

Funny in my mind said...

I dumped Twitter because I lost interest and I almost dumped blogging because everyone was so angry. I have had some bad weeks but blogging seems to be my outlet so I have continued to blog but the funny stuff has been missing. I hope to get it back soon. I still turn to the few that i love for laughs and they haven't let me down. I did delete some though because it was too blah.

My husband use to threaten to just put a drain in the middle of the room and just hose it down. Now I have a hairy beast of a dog that requires vast amounts of effort to keep from eatting hair balls.

Don't Twitter and don't give 2 shits about Miley!
I'm SO sick of the blogger drama... I just stopped following and unsubscribed to somebody because I was sick of the crap.
I love monkeys, so I think it is cute what Asher is doing... it is probably because you call him that. You know in therapy, they ALWAYS blame the mother!!
I wouldn't even know HOW to sweep, that's The Hubs job, sorry to brag!! He is the bestest man in the whole wide world! HaHa!! :-)

Puh-lease! Frankly Miley is a Twit, and so is daddy. I really don't care if she stays, goes, whatever. As for blogger who hate.....blogging? There is a cure. Don't blog, and don't visit other blogs. Personally the people i dislike are the ones who feel the need to come to your blog are mean, and rude to you for having your opinion. I really loathe the ones who hide behind anonymous.

As for the sweeping thing, I only have one word "roomba". (It is the robot vacuum ....).

I too sweep the floor about 6 x's a day and 3xs a night makes me nuts

I am not an attention whore, I'm just a whore.

"The monkey stage" seems to be a new stage of development in boys. Sounds like Asher's being very cute with it all.

The dog only eats from the table??? bwaaaahaaaahaaaa.

I know some bloggers who thought they were going to make cajillions of dollars and be the next Dooce (:shudder:) have turned bitter. Seems like the gravy train for mom blogs has pretty much left the station -- and left some frustrated fake-ass bores behind.

anyone who makes fun of miley is a friend of mine.

So glad he's obsessed with monkeys - had a niece with the same affliction about poop. Every video that year.... Julie, julie Say hi!


Poopie....


it was a really long year.

I didn't know about Miley & Twitter until I visited your blog... what does that say about me? about you? hmmmm...

I think bloggers who hate other bloggers, blogs and blogging in general should just stop blogging... it's fairly simple... just walk away from the keyboard.

I had to LOL at your 2nd and 3rd reasons for sweeping... your honesty is hilarious.
