Don't Stick Your Finger In There!

Supreme Leader came home from the hospital on Saturday and brought balance to the Force. All is well. Now, random this.



Konichiwa!

So last week while I was at the doctor's and she was busy sticking a search light down my throat, Liam was amusing himself by playing with his Lego on the examination table. The table has a couple of finger sized metal tubes down by the foot of the bed where stirrups can be attached. They attach by sliding a long metal pin, on the stirrup, into the tubes on the bed. See where this is going? Liam drops a piece of Lego into the little tube figuring it will fall out the bottom. When it doesn't, he jams his finger into the hole where it promptly becomes stuck and will not come out. The doctor had to get some ultrasound gel and pour it into the tube and then rub it all over his finger so we could get it out. Why, oh why, didn't I have my camera on me?

Fun with sheets.




What's the point in having a blog if you can't make fun of your family, right? During the Olympics, one of Supreme Leader's sisters was a volunteer so she got quite a bit of official schwag out of it. Last weekend, while taking a walk through a nearby park and wearing an Olympic jacket, some tourists mistook her for former figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi and asked her for an autograph. I so wish I'd been there.

Jim makes pancakes. He's my hero.


Monday morning while walking Connor to school I got a text message from my brother and could see the phone was receiving another larger message. His text was asking me to ignore any videos I might receive since he was trying to send one to his wife and may have accidently sent it to me instead. Since he's in the process of moving out to Winnipeg where his wife was transferred for work three weeks ago I deleted it immediately. That's nothing I want any part of.

I want this couch.


Finally, the perfect man. I think this ad for GQ really must be seen. Words don't do it justice.

Entertained or disturbed and you want more/less? Then head to the Un-Mom's for more or to lodge a complaint.

PS. Christina, you have no link to your blog!

  1. I'll bet the boys had no idea how much fun could be had when the ol' Captain was ruling the roost.

    I'll bet Supreme Leader had no idea how much mess could be made when the ol' Captain was ruling the roost.

  4. I'm trying to figure out how you convinced TIghtwad to make that commercial.

    and the video sent by mistake? Made me laugh OUT LOUD.

  5. It's a good man who deletes those videos his brother sent by accident. ;)

  6. Hurray for Supreme Leader, so pleased to hear (well OK read) she is home.

    Great sheets.... who would a thunk?

    Ah the finger stuck in a tube, hmmm remember being in a similar situation though at home and the parents frantically working Vaseline into the lot, I had to stand on a box in the living room while they worked and worked and finally liberated the digit. Well that was about 1952, I was about 4yo. Geese o Pete what memories you dredge up.

    And another hurrah for Supreme Leader.

    You are a lot more fun when she is by your side. :D

    Glad you got through the bleak time.

  7. Poor Liam. His expectation of the Lego to come out the bottom of the tube was forward-thinking. Seems whenever those moments happen, the camera is absent. ;)

    Glad Supreme Leader is home!

    Glad Princess Nagger is at school so she doesn't get any ideas from the sheets images as well as the pancake one. ;)

    The GQ ad? Hysterical! As is you deleting your brother's accidental video. ;)

  8. I feel like a total slacker! I haven't been here in so long I missed 4 fun filled drama posts.

    Hope all gets back to normal soon. Or as normal as it ever is.

  9. Last night I dreamed I was a homeless person, but I was using YOU as a character reference to keep from getting arrested. "No, no, it's okay. Ask Captain Dumbass. He knows me."

    p.s. brother's video could have been GREAT blackmail material.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I sensed that order had been restored.

    Glad SL is home and your sanity remained intact. Or mostly intact?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh where to start? Don't you know you never ever go anywhere without a camera when kids are involved? I would tell you to throw one in your purse with the kids snack and the crayons but...

    Accidentally sent videos have their place my friend. It's called blackmail.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Glad to hear that SL is home again. Kind (and smart) move to immediately delete the mis-sent video. Some things you don't want to see.

    ReplyDelete
  13. While I admire the art and execution of the sheets pix, I would like to see a speed round which includes folding them all back up. Glad SL is home again. The force is back!

  14. Didn't think you'd notice about my blog. Thought you were supposed to be a dumb ass..?

    PS. That couch is ugly. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. The couch is ugly, I agree. But I want Jim to be my Dad. or at least my neighbor who likes to share his pancakes.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I suppose there are worse things he could have stuck his finger in being in a docs office...lol ;)

    btw: I have a couch just like that, same color and everything ;)

    ReplyDelete
  17. So glad to hear SL is doing better and at home.
    And at first, I wasn't sure why you deleted the video. I had to think about it for a second and then I was like ohhh.... Uh-huh. Life with an infant sure makes you forget about such things, or at least shove them into the back of your mind. Boo.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You have a SiL that can pass for Kristi Yamaguchi and you didn't share? For shame, dude.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Glad to hear, that she(SL) is back home! :)

    The GQ video was great! The nose glasses reminded me of the 80'ties game 'Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders'... *sighs* good times.

    & *lulz* @ your Bro!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ok, that shit is taking waaaay too long to buffer. Explain.

    Glad to hear SL is home finally. I'm sure you're not getting a break though seeing how she probably has to take it easy!

  21. the gq commercial is wonderful!! i love tuesday at YOUR blog!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sorry, but the "Diamond Head" band that HEFF is used to listening to speaks ENGLISH !

  23. My sister-in-law gets mistaken for Sandra Oh. Especially that time when we went to the winery in Santa Barbara where she worked in "Sideways" (Kalyra?).

    ReplyDelete
  24. OMG that ad is hilarious....love it! Although I can totally understand how Liam got his finger stuck, what I am a bit confused by is why you were at a gynecologist for a throat exam....in America we have ENT docs who don't even bother with stirrups. you know, for safety reasons.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I can't believe you said stirrups several times and never once said speculum.

    Thank you.

  26. Your poor kid. Hasn't even hit puberty yet and is already labeled as the kid who got his finger stuck in the OBGYN equipment.

    Smart move deleting your brother's video. Ick. I reinstalled my brother's computer once and came across pics of him and his girlfriend when I was moving his files off if it. Ick. Didn't open the thumbnails though, saving grace.

  27. very cool randoms,
    beautiful post!
    Happy Wednesday!

    ReplyDelete
  28. BUT WHEN WILL YOU HAVE A BAYBEEEEEE?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Truly. Words don't to that ad justice. Bueno.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Do you think the Perfect Man makes pancakes like Jim? I'm thinking yes. And...I want that sofa too.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Glad the Missus is back home. Now you'll have plenty of time to practice on those pancakes.

    ReplyDelete
  32. So happy to hear SL is back in da houzzz. Perfect man was hilarious. And now we all know new and exciting things you can do with ultrasound gel.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Uhhhh. Re-reading my comment made me realize that gel thing could be taken the wrong way. Was NOT trying to go there!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nice bassline in that tune, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  35. love love love that GQ ad lmao.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That's a therapists couch. What are you saying, exactly?

    Does Jim's poor kid/model actually get to EAT those pancakes?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ah, she's back home -- so glad!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Grand bit of randomness...loved the GQ vid! Glad all is well on the home front.

  39. Those pancakes are awesome! I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love that couch! And a finger stuck in a stirrup hole is much better than a clover flower jammed all the way up the nose and into the sinus cavities...been there, it wasn't fun..

    ReplyDelete
  41. Welcome home Supreme Leader!

    That is an awesome couch. Also loved the sheets pictures.

    Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  42. fantastic chaos as always! Now if only the perfect made those kick-ass pancakes....

    ReplyDelete
  43. Such a lot of material here I hardly know what to say! For starters, deleting your bro's video makes you a Perfect Man. A sigh of relief for your wife, and hope she's doing well. Love the sheets, not the couch so much. One thing bothers me, is the lego still down there along with a bunch of icky gel (and from now on I will think about this every time I look at this apparatus in the doctor's office!)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great set of stories. Never knew that Lego could be so much fun.

    ReplyDelete
  45. How about "entertainingly disturbed?" That's how I like to think of myself.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I used to ski but never did the black diamond stair case run! haha

    I am glad that there are no more ripples in the force and that order has been restored to the galaxy! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  47. Once you got into that sofa you'd never get out again. Do you think that Jim would do pancake gigs around the country?

    ReplyDelete
  48. The couch isn't ugly! It's uber-cool. And the pillow is perfection. You could construct an entire life around a couch like that: pick a mate that suits your couch; raise your kids to be the kind of elite liberals that go with your couch; read only NYTimes Book Review preferences so your couch will approve; swear to buy no clothes that Ralph Lauren doesn't sell so you don't become a drag on your couch's self-image, etc.

Come on, sailor. I love you long time.
