OMG, Get This...

The best "Weird Searches that lead people to your blog" to date. It's not so much weird as it is delectably ironic:

HOW TO RUN A DAISY TROOP MEETING.


And there's more fun stuff I have to tell you about.

About a month or so ago, I was perusing one of my favorite cheapie/freebie sites, KachinaWeb (costs $10 to join, I think, but it's TOTALLY worth it, IMHO, and y'all know I would tell you if it was a ripoff). Someone had written in about how they'd sent an email to Simple Green and told them how much they loved their products, and the good people at Simple Green sent her back a big FedEx box full of products and stuffed animals for her kids and she was totally floored by it.

So I thought, I'll give that a try. I write good letters.

I wrote and told them how much I like their products. I like them so much, in fact, that I'd love for Simple Green to come in a small size that I could keep in the car for when my three kids make messes (wanted to make sure they knew I had three kids so they could send me three of whatever kid stuff they send lest there be a mutiny at Chez Karma). Keep up the great work, your loyal customer, blah blah blah.

And then I forgot all about it.

Until Friday morning when my doorbell rang and I saw a FedEx truck in front of the house. I was trying to remember if I'd ordered yarn recently...no... whatever could it be? The delivery gal handed me the box, cautioning me that it was heavy. It was. It was REALLY heavy. It also clinked a little bit when I wobbled it. Oooooh, the suspense!

I set the box on my bed and grabbed my scissors and a camera. Brace yourselves.



NINETY-SIX 2oz. bottles of concentrated Simple Green. Let me just reiterate this.

NINETY-SIX of them.

This pic shows one box of forty-eight bottles. There were two boxes taped together. NINETY-SIX bottles total.

All I really wanted was one.

Ninety-six bottles of Simple Green on the wall, Ninety-six bottles of Simple Greeeeeeeeeeeeeen, ya take one down and spray your sink to a high-polished shine, Ninety-five bottles of Simple Green on the wall...

And it's concentrated, so one 2oz bottle dilutes like 10:1. So basically, I'm pretty set on cleaning products.


Another blogworthy package I received last week came from Bezzie!



Item #1: Penny Karma Crack! Werther's Chewy Caramels, if you're new to my blog.

Item #2: Spoons! So my kids can eat cereal for breakfast without burdening themselves by a) washing the spoons in the sink or b)waking me up to tell me that we're out of clean spoons!

Item #3: Box Tops for Beebie's school! Beeb was so happy.

Yay!! Thank you Bezzie!


That's all well and good, you say, but what about the weekend's visit with Aunt Drama and Uncle Earhair? C'mon, we're dyin' here!!

It was really pretty boring, actually. MIL and FIL didn't come. I guess the only highlight was when Aldigirl bit my Beebie on the arm, for reasons still undetermined.

I did bring an emergency bottle of Barbecue Sauce in my purse.

Holey mother of all that is clean and sparkly! Wow! I need to write the kitty litter people...

Ninety-six???? Holy mother! Suddenly I feel inspired to write letters praising dishwashing liquid and paper towels.

You guys are completely missing the point. Remember when GWB Sr. said he hated broccoli, and the Broccoli Growers of America sent bushels to the White House?

You need to say that you hate gold. Or diamonds. Or sexy, nekkid men. THEN see what happens...

(but seriously, 96 bottles of Simple Green? Bloody hell. Do they think you live at Chez Stadium??)
