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 will.not.get.the.best.of.me.
