I finagled precious jewels from Charming by serving him an insult opportunity on a silver platter. Totally intentional and he is none the wiser. An insult lasts only a moment, but brush that shit off because diamonds last forever.
I sent our holiday brag letter to everyone on the internets. It was a stellar year for our family. If you are someone who gets jealous easily, you probably shouldn't read it.
We also invited one of those little elf(ish) things into our house this week. I hadn't planned to do it, but the children were working my last nerve and I got desperate. Also, I'm cheap so our elf is an imposter I got at the dollar store. Charming is thoroughly embarrassed and wants me to make it clear that he had nothing to do with this. He is not nearly as miserly as I am. Anyway, so far it's been a dollar well spent. Operation: freak the snot out of my kids...complete.
ElfShaming.com caught wind of my efforts and shared my post with their fans. It's my most popular one yet (what is it about that damn elf that people love to read?!)! Thanks to them, I made a lot of new friends. If you are one of them, WELCOME!
Last week, I promised to share a blog I've been reading with you so you can enjoy it too. This week, it's The Sarcasm Goddess over at 'For the Love of Writing'. I'm pretty sure we have a date to do karate in the garage sometime after the holidays. (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, read here.)
Warning: Do not read her blog while enjoying your venti non-fat no-whip sugar-free soy half-decaf cinnamon gingerbread peppermint latte, as it will end up all over your computer screen. You paid six bucks for that cup o' joe and I don't want to be held responsible for any of that sweet nectar not making it down to your thirsty little belly. This chick has the sarcasm thing down pat. I could learn a thing or two from her. Also, she's vowed to blog every single day until Christmas, so it's exciting to know I can look forward to at least one laugh a day.
And because it's Christmas and SANTA IS COMING and in honor of my 10,000th pageview happening this week (!!!!!), I will end this post with one of my favorite scenes from my favorite Christmas movie OF ALL TIME...Elf (Duh. How could they go wrong with a name like that?) Also, if you don't like this movie I'm 150% positive we can't be friends. And also, smiling's my favorite. Happy weekend, everyone!
