I met bloggers and you-u didn't...neener neener

What... like you come here for my incredible sense of maturity ? Pul-ease

Saturday night I met up with Annie, Mommastrantrum and Mamakazie for dinner and drinks. It was the first meeting for all of us and believe it or not they did not run away screaming when they met me. They may have even liked me a little. Or at least were good at pretending.
The conversation flowed as did the wine and we had a fabulous time the ladies and I. And well they'll always be special to me because when I mistook the coffee flavors that sat out on the counter in Dilettante for lotion and promptly pumped it on my hand they laughed their asses off. Much like I would have done had the tables been turned. What can I say it was in a lotion-esque kind of bottle and uh well I guess I kind of thought they were trying out new Amaretto scented lotion. It could happen right?
So there you go, neener neener. You wish you were me don't you ?

Oh and on a totally,completely,unrelated note my 5 year old daughter,J after learning that we were not going to the park immediately upon my arrival home from a long day at work glared at me and said "Mom, you're fired".
And no we don't watch The Apprentice in this house...thank you. So I'm really perplexed as to where she got that little gem. Yep folks , she'll be here all week.

Yeah. I'm really glad I never mistake coffee flavors for lotion. ;) We can't take you anywhere. hehe. Actually I'm thinking we might be birds of a fricken feather. Chopstix would be way fun for next time!!

oh, and Yay for Monday being over. I kinda wish my family would have fired me earlier. I'da said cool I'll be on the couch with a pint of Haagen daaz. Don't bug me. I don't work here anymore. 8)

Ouch, fired by a five year old is simply harsh.

I totally love the look of your blog. It brought a smile to my face. I love meeting new bloggers.

Not Afraid to Use It said...

How wonderful that you go to meet fellow bloggers. It is always a lot of fun, especially when it goes well. LOL

MadWoman said...

I cannot even begin to count the number of times I've been dismissed by the spawn. It's getting to the point where I might be able to register for welfare after being laid off for the umpteenth time in the few short years they've been around.

Yay for meeting other bloggers! There is no one close enough to me that I ever get the chance, so I live vicariously through you all.

I'm so bummed that I couldn't rub coffee flavors on my hands with you!

Next time, I promise! ;)

jennifer, playgroups are no place for children said...

I think it would be awesome to get fired sometimes.

Sounds like you all had fun!!

mommastantrum said...

I really don't understand why anyone would put coffee flavors in THOSE bottles. Especially when they have just made your drink and handed it to you there. I mean shouldn't that be with the stir sticks and cream? You should so totally sue. I will testify, and will totally not once cackle on the stand.

I tried to fire my 4 year old this week for peeing on me in the car...it resulted in the BIGGEST tearful scene ever. I felt really bad about it. And I have NEVER felt bad about firing anyone. Like the Trumpster I actually enjoy it.

Maureen said...

Ha ha! You're fired! That's priceless!

Yes, yes I AM jealous. It's crap that I live so far from all my bloggy friends. And that I can't afford to fly to SanFran to meet some.

Maybe that's just as well; I'd probably embarass myself by mistaking coffee flavoring for hand lotion or something...

What? Oops. Sorry.

MommasWorld said...

I am jealous! I want to smell like Amaretto too. No, really, I would totally wear Amaretto sent. Starbucks needs to start a sent line.

Mommys are given the "fired" order many times. It just never sticks. I couldn't tell you how many times I was "fired" by my children or told "You are the meanest mommy in the whole wide world." A few minutes later, when they were happy about something I did, I would remind them - "Yes, that's right. I'm the meanest mommy in the whole wide world. And don't you forget it!" We would have a good laugh.

I am SO jealous.

Mike said...

You met other bloggers? How is that possible? None of them are real! They only exist in cyberspace! J/k.

Mrs. Flinger said...

Ahhhh CRAP! One day I'll make it to something here. GAWD. What a lo-Oser. Faith told me about it and lalalalalaaaa wait, what day is it?

This happens to me a lot lately. DAMN.

Next time I wanna come play, too. Please? With cherries?

Gemini Girl said...

Came across your website- great blog!
I cannot wait for my twins to start talking. But then again, they may tell me that I'm fired.

That girl said...

I came here via Annie, cool that you got to meet other bloggers. I've done that twice myself and it's always fun :-)

Perhaps your daughter will become Trump's assistant one day, corporate world, here she comes!

Lollie said...

My 4 year old nephew has taken to saying, "Who's the man? YOU 'da man!"

Whiskeymarie said...

Did she at least give you a decent severance package?

Elisa said...

Oh, Amaretto lotion, that sounds fantastic! Much better than flavor shots. But I would have cracked up too ;-)

Angie said...

i kinda wish my kids would fire me too...

doozie said...

I'm sure when she wants some food she'll rehire you
