Friday Flip-Offs, 6/4 Edition

by Gigi Ross on June 3, 2010

Welcome to Friday Flip-Offs!

For those of you who haven’t visited before, Friday Flip-offs is my way of ridding myself of weekday angst and frustration before heading into the weekend. I virtually flip off whoever is on my last nerve. It’s very cathartic. The theory is that I don’t take anything out on my husband and kids, although the jury’s out on that.

Join in the fun! Don’t spend your weekend stewing over the little people and annoying situations that got to you this week! I’ve taken my badge code down because nobody could get it to work. I spent way too many hours troubleshooting [see flipoff below]. But please, if you link up, show me some love, yo.

Before we get started on the Flip-Offs, I wanted to give a shout out to my friend Ash over at Shades of Blue and Green. She has created some AMAZINGLY cute badges for anyone who is a POS (prisoner of summer). A POS is someone who doesn’t get to do all their fun bloggy things because it’s, well, summer! I have one over in my sidebar but she’s got several to choose from. I selected the Valium option. They’re really fun, go check her out. Oh, and her blog is terrific, too.

Now, back to my regularly scheduled Flip-Offs.

To my FlipOff badge: FLIP OFF!  Why is it that the badge displays in my post. The scroll box for my lovely readers to COPY the code displays in my post. But when a lovely reader cuts and pastes the code, it doesn’t work in a blog post. 10 web tutorials later, I have deemed this not capable of resolution. It’s not fair. I want a bloggy badge scroll box. Dammit.

To a certain someone who CANCELLED not only our almost-free vacation in San Diego that was to start tomorrow, but then told my certain loved one that NO vacations will be allowed this summer: FLIP OFF. I’m not certain that’s even legal, but it’s horrible people management at BEST.

To the deep end of my pool: FLIP OFF. You scared me yesterday when I tried to learn to freestyle during a swim lesson and I started to feel like I was sinking. You

All better now. Now…go check out Lish at A Beautiful Mess…she’s joining in, and Mis over at Miel et Lait…as are some other bloggy friends! Link up and join the bloghop!

So glad the badge thing wasn’t me last week. I tried it three times. No time to join in this week, sorry but I’ll be up again next week, for sure.

Oh, I’ll flip off your badge! Here I thought it was me!

When I get a moment, I’m going to visit the linky loves up there. This is apparently my new favorite thing ever.

Shell June 4, 2010 at 8:16 am

I gave a shout out to POS, too! Love it.

If you send me the direct link code to your pic for your button(is it in photobucket? That’s how I do mine), I think I can do the code for you. :)

I thought I was the only one who couldn’t work the badge-I now feel slightly better. :) But it sucks that it won’t work-if it was just me, we could blame by technical gooberness.
I’m off to do some flip-offs.

Vacation Flip Off-Don’t even tell me that this is the latest cut-back at work?!?!? Bad enough companies have cut out pay raises, bonuses, increased the cost of insurance, now they are taking away vacation? Hope I am on the wrong track!

NO vacations this summer? What’s the justification for that? That sucks!

Holy crap. I need to post it still. Sorry about your trip and I’m proud of you for conqering your fears! You go girl.

Can’t believe your trip got cancelled! Huge Flip OFF! Can’t wait to check out the others. Thanks so much for coming up with this! Makes me laugh every time!

Miel Abeille June 4, 2010 at 6:36 pm

Ah, I just posted my flip-offs and feel like a little weight was lifted.

Here’s to flipping off the badge problem! WP seems to discriminate!

Bummer about your vacation — I would be LIVID. Good to see you’re taking it a little bit better than I would. :)

Love how the FFO is growing, girlfriend!

Oh that is rotten news that your trip got cancelled at the last minute, that surely is not in the handbook! Sorry you had to hear such bad news so late in the day.

Monique June 5, 2010 at 8:20 pm

Thanks for having me at your little party! I totally agree that the oil spill pictures are so sad ~ Tough times. Your most recent post looks like a very yummy drink!

Have a good week. See you again @ FFO ❀
