The Breakup

Dear Blog,

I have found someone else.

It's not you, it's me.

I just can't invest this much time into a relationship right now.

I don't think I'm ready for commitment.

You deserve someone better.

We need a break from each other.

Maybe we can just be friends

We can try again later.

Now you have the chance to let your voice be heard. The polls are open now until Sunday at midnight. The results will be announced Monday on Studio 5.

Remember…every computer and handheld device counts!

Decision ’08—Gettin to Know Your Candidate

In a couple a days you get to go to the polls at Studio 5 and vote. I feel it’s important to know somethin about the people you vote for. So in the interest of a more informed public, here are my answers to some FAQs.

Q: Why did you decide to run?

A: Well really I didn’t. My darling husband got me on the ballot. I’m just an outsider but now that I’m in the race, I’ve decided it’s important to win. After all, winnin is everything and anyone who says differently obviously hasn’t ever won anything.

Q: What will be your first action if you win?

A: First I just want to say that I’m really honored to be a part of this. This has been a crazy couple a days and I’m havin so much fun. I’m lookin down the road and if I win I’m thinking a win will really shore up my economy. Me an Guy, we’re just a couple a mavericks and we’ll be goin to the Market Street Grill for dinner. And who knows, if you vote for me we might take you with us.

Q: Are you really that cute?

A: Oh come on now. That’s just crazy talkin. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Q: What does a Vice President do?

A: My experience as Senior Vice President of Provo High Class of ’90 (Go Bulldogs!) has given me the background needed to answer this question. A Vice President works with Senators makin posters announcin all the important issues, like the next big game or date dance. I’m not talkin about wishin for, or hopin for somethin to happen, I’m talkin about takin action and plannin events like prom or reunions. And also too Vice Presidents can also make a political party’s ticket more attractive.

Q: How do you think we should deal with terrorists?

A: I’m gonna have to get back to you on that one.

Q: Do you really kill animals?

A: I’m a maverick. At one point in my life I had an extensive insect collection. And once I stepped on a mouse. The poor little guy was just flippin around there on the floor. And also too I cut off the head of a frog in college physiology. But I always feel bad or at least grossed out about it. I take a pro-life approach to life.

Q: What morning shows do you watch?

A: All of them. Any of them. Anything that flips across the TV. In the morning I’m just flippin the channels and watchin anything that will help me be a better mom. You know, being a mom doesn’t mean you’re completely cut off from the rest of the world. Moms are just as American as the rest of Americans. Oh, and I’m really enjoyin Studio 5. *wink*

I Can See Russia From My House

Coming up very soon you have an important opportunity. An opportunity to let your voice be heard. Every voice matters and what you do does make a difference. That's right, you need to vote. For me.

This Friday I'll be on Studio 5 as one of 5 Sarah Palin look-alike finalists. After the show you'll go to their website and vote for your favorite candidate (me of course). I believe the winner will be announced on Monday. I'll post a link when they put up the photos.

So tune in Friday at 11:00 and watch me experience my 15 seconds of fame. Then Rock the Vote!

And also too I'd like to give a shout out to Sara L. and Ren W. who have been calling me "Tina" for years. And also too the great Guy Francis.

Do you think there will be a talent portion?

Who'll Start the Bidding?

What the? It's been March since my last post? Sheesh. I guess it takes a good cause to get me off my keester and blogging. Well, I found one. Or rather, it found me.

The hubby and I are participating in Designmom's fundraising efforts for Stephanie Nielson (NieNie) and auctioning off a few of his little sketch paintings. I think they're awesome, and we've found they look even awesomer when they are all framed up. I'm certain you need one for your wall. Plus, you will be donating to some wonderful people who have found themselves in a difficult situation (to put it lightly). I've posted the paintings we're auctioning below. You can go to his blog to link to his eBay auction.

To learn more about Stephanie and her family, you can go to Stephanie's blog and find updates at her sister's blog.

Lunch Conversations

5-year old: Mom? When you were little did you have electricity?

Mom: (choking on drink) Yes.


5-year old: Oh. I didn't think you would.

It's Come to This

Last night I passed a new mile post in my life. I put Bill Cosby's "Mother's Curse" on my children.

"I Hope! That Someday! You Have Children! Who Act! The Same Way That You Act!"

And a variation on the same theme:

"I Hope! That Someday! You Have Children! Who Hate The Food! That You Cook!"

Chili, anyone?
