Project Alicia : Friday Flip Offs!

Friday Flip Offs!

How in the heck could I have almost forgotten what day it is… the day we all look forward to all week. You know, Friday Flip Offs of course.

I’m so ready to rid myself of all this crap that has been festering all.week.long. It starts small and then one thing builds upon another and so on and so forth, until you seriously can NOT take it for even another second!

Are you ready? It’s time to do this thing!

Gigi, thanks for being the mastermind behind this VIRTUAL DETOX!!

To my laptop that will not let me view anything in peace. You may be able to make my life a living hell at times, but just remember that I own you and can do anything I want to you, including smashing you into a million pieces with my bare hands…FLIP OFF.

To my realtor that has sat back with his thumb up his rear end and done absolutely nothing to speed up this agonizing short sale. We hired you with the understanding that you were some kind of expert, but I could have got my own realtor’s license and sold a dozen homes in the time this has taken you… FLIP OFF.

To this dark rain cloud that seems to have taken up residence in my life. You may cause momentary feelings of complete and utter worthlessness, but YOU SUCK and I refuse to succumb to your powers. FLIP OFF!

To all those fake people on facebook that work overtime to make others feel inadequate about their own lives. Um, yeah. We all know who you are and that you are full of crap. And that you are only saying those things because your real life actually blows. We see right through your shallowness… FLIP OFF.

To this lingering sinus infection that couldn’t be more annoying if it tried. I don’t know what you are trying to prove here, but life goes on with or without you so you might as well just give it up already. Oh and by the way, FLIP OFF!!

And to the never ending piles of laundry that seem to magically multiply and then play hide and seek with me at the most inopportune of times… FLIP OFF.

Ah… DEEP SIGH... so therapeutic. Maybe just maybe I can get through this 5K and have a good weekend after all.

If you would like to participate go get the badge from KludgyMom and link up! You won’t regret it.

  4. Oh, Facebook! I have a love-hate relationship with facebook. And I'm only saying that because I don't want to admit that it is really a hate-hate relationship. Thanks for saying what I was afraid to.

    Per chance, is that you I keep bumping into as I try to escape the dark cloud looming over me? Maybe if we stick together, we'll out number the cloud and he'll run off and hide somewhere FAR, FAR AWAY!

  13. Ha! I've never seen the Friday Flipoffs before! Very therapeutic.
    Sorry to ehar about the rain cloud... and the sinus infection... oh and the lazy realtor.

    I'm guessing the Facebook stuff you hate is the "my-life-is-wonderful" status updates some people post so very regularly?
    I wouldn't know. I'm never there.
    I'm here, BLOGGING.

  14. I'm new to the Friday Flip-offs, but I love them. No need to tell you how spot on you are about Facebook. Love my blog's fan page, but my personal profile is filled with people from high school that seem to be so squeaky clean and perfect, it makes me want to vomit. Who are they kidding. I join you in that flip off!

  15. OMG are me and you gonna be friends. I laughed at the Realtor flip-off. I thought the same thing when I was selling my house with help-u-sell, need I say more. They A. Didn't help me sell it in a 5 month time frame. and B. the next year I sold my house in 5 weeks with an expert realtor right before the housing crash. I feel for ya, can relate and empathize greatly. Good Luck and just remember you are an advocate for yourself, keep chin up and you'll sell that house before hell freezes over. See ya over at BlogFrog!!

  16. Great flip offs. And yea, I'll flip off my laundry too. Four boys and me. The laundry is ridiculous. And neverending. And stinky. Man is it stinky.

    Thanks for perking up my Friday. I needed that!

  17. Okay, here's what I have to say about all your finger salutes:

    I have a Mac so I pretty much kiss it every day. I do flip off Blogger on a regular basis, usually on my Blogger Blog to their face. I hate those assholes.

    Sorry about the realtor. Here's a finger from me, too.

    No black cloud. Life's too short. Look up to the sky and know every morning's a new day.

    Sorry about your FB friend, sounds like a real assbag. Here's another finger from me.

    (I hope I'm not offending with the cussing but I think flip off Friday deserves cussing.

    Sinus infection blows. (Sorry no pun intended)

    And laundry? Well, I do believe you know how I feel about that. Here's a 2 fingered salute to the freakin' laundry.

    Have a great weekend!

  18. I love this, Why didn't I think of doing something like this on my blog? I might just have to see if its ok if I borrow this idea, totally giving you credit of course.

  19. I agree 100% about Facebook! I talked about practically the same thing in my post today, only it was about bloggers!

    Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend! =)

  21. Wow, more Friday fun! I'll have to add this to my list!

    I think I like this blog & will have to follow!

    Have a great weekend!

  22. I wonder if we're all blogging/commenting with each other and the cloud keeps moving back and forth amongst us. And I think it's related to Facebook. Sometimes I feel it's the most toxic thing in my life!

    Have a GREAT 5K!

  23. Stumbled on your blog somehow... just have to say this is the funniest thing I've read all day. Especially the Facebook thing. :D Cheers!

  24. Am right behind you "flippin' off" the laundry and fake fb'ers!

    Thanks for the sentiments about the 5K. Registered for another the end of this month. For some reason, my running since the 5K has been "off". Feelin' heavy, although scales aren't moving up. Need to work on my diet. (sigh)
    Good luck on your 5K, my friend. Will send a prayer along with this comment that your sinuses clear up. We live in SC and April's pollen count was ABSOLUTELY horrid.

  28. I'm going to flip off my laptop, too. Is your short sale on your house, or a house you are trying to buy? Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  29. What a freeing post! I would like to flip off Outlook. It's always messing up my emails and shutting down. Ticks me off!

    Good luck with the house stuff.

  32. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!

    Blogs are always filled with the pretty, the nice, the happy.

    It's nice to have an excuse to let it all out - virtual detox as you say.

    Thanks for introducing me to the most therapeutic link up ever! I'll be 'playing' this week for sure!

  36. I thought I commented on your post earlier. I'm going to flip off my brain. apparently it is not working today. Love what you said about FB too. I hate the fake people on FB and the ones who are always trying to sound like they smell like roses, when we all know they most certainly DO NOT. Love your post :)
