I'm Kind Of A Big Deal... er... Dork

I'm kind of the queen.
I mean the queen of doing dumb things.
Maybe you have thought that about yourself.
But I really am.

Just moments ago, I had a hammer, and a ziplock freezer bag filled with ice.
I laid it on the ground and start pounding away.
Why you ask? Because our "ice maker" is not hooked up,
and I have a old/new obsession with crushed ice. 
I like to chew on it.
This started when I had my first kid (in the hospital of course)
and with each kid the obsession "restarted."
Suddenly out of nowhere the other day, I suddenly crave crushed ice.
I need it. Bad. What?

This morning I thought my sweat shorts felt a little snug.
I chalked it up to my week of vacation eating.
They were just not fitting quite right.
I thought this until I sat on the toilet, looked down,
and saw that they were on backwards.
Yeah, that.

Ok, maybe this is TMI, but my first pregnancy...
36 hours of labor ending in c-section...
Sometime in there I remember asking my mom to put a ponytail in my hair.
She put it right on top of my head.
I also remember stripping off all my clothes. I mean ALL of them.
Did I mention I gained 70 lbs?
Have you ever noticed I have a bit of an Asian look?
It's accentuated when I am 70lbs overweight with a pony tail on top of my head.
Do you know where I am going with this?
Let's just say, I am sure the guests of the hospital were concerned for the safety of
the doctors and nurses when they walked by and saw the naked sumo wrestler
yelling "NOOOOOO!!!!" at everyone in rebellion to the command to push.
You don't want to mess with a defiant naked sumo wrestler.

I'm sort of known for doing "Girl Behind the Blog" vlogs and doing dumb things.
Like making a BEAUTY TIP vlog with only one earring in.
Who does that?
Or running from I did here.
Not to mention I recorded myself "neck up" and there was an entire screen
 of open space above me.
But THIS WEEK, I recorded a new vlog...
(it will be posted tomorrow)
Sadly, there were no bees, and all jewelry was in tact...
Unfortunately I talked and bore my soul for 9 minutes
(6 minutes longer than I was supposed to) without the camera actually recording.

Good practice though...I mean for when someone wants to take me out to 
coffee and ask me in depth about "how I've changed since I start blogging."
It could happen. You never know...

Ok, I better save some of these.
These lame, stupid, embarrassing stories I have
Because I decided to launch a new link up. (Yes another one! A funny one! Of course!)

50 Shades Of Stupid

Lets tell our dumb, lame, stupid, embarrassing stories....
from this week, last month, 10 years ago..
or maybe if someone you know lets you, you can tell theirs -wink wink
Whatever, just make me feel better by letting me know all the 
dumb stuff you've done!!
Who's with me??

I will launch this on Tuesday, September 11.
And will be on every Tuesday after that!
I dont really like that it falls on that particular date, for obvious reasons.
It just happened that way. =(

If you are interested in co-hosting with me, send me an email.
I will have 1 co-host each week.
I hope this works out as a fun link up, 
because I do way too many stupid things not to share.

...and yes, the "dump" in the button above ACTUALLY was my dumb thing
I actually did. Who would have thought?

Um, me.

On a more serious note:
 I am teaming up with a couple of lovely ladies for another new VLOG link up called Represent. Check out what it's all about BELOW!!
