Friday Flip-Offs 6/25 Edition

This is Friday-Flip Offs, "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."

Gigi at Kludgymom is the brains behind this brilliant idea.

So, without further ado, let's begin this VIRTUAL DETOX. Ahem...

To my piece of crap car that has contracted a new mystery ailment leaving us temporarily stranded at the pool in 90 degree heat in full sun. Flip Off!

To myself for deciding to take off my swim shorts, but forgetting to sunscreen my upper legs leaving me as red as a lobster and rendering me unfit for just about anything that involves movement for at least 24 hours. I haven't had a burn this bad in at least a decade. Ouch.

To all the socks that have gone AWAL...

And the never ending piles of laundry... you are seriously too annoying for words. Flip Off!!

To all the honkin 8 legged critters, especially the ones I saw carrying those nasty egg sacs...

To the horse flies that buzz around my head every night and harass me until I want to scream...

And to the mysterious special agent ants on a reconnaissance mission to get inside my fridge...

Listen up... Phil is on his way. (PLEASE HURRY, PHIL!) You are SMALL. And I am BIG!! And come Tuesday you had better think twice before you come within 3 feet of this house because his poisonous vapors will eliminate your existence. Mwahahaha!! Flip Off!

Ok, Much better. I feel like I might just survive the weekend.

Now it's YOUR turn. What is bugging you these days? If you are in need of a great vent, try Friday Flip-Offs. It's free and so therapeutic and I'm sure you already have plenty of material. Give it a go! Then stop by the other FFOs. They are so entertaining and sure to bring some good gut rolling laughs.

  1. I also got myself a nice little sunburn by forgetting to apply sunblock. It sucks...yes, a lot!

    I was SO glad to come home and find no ants in the cupboards...I thought for sure they'd attack while we were away :)

    Great flip offs....love the pictures that go with them!

  5. Ouch! That sunburn looks sooo sore! I make sure everyone else is covered but always forget to do myself - you'd think I'd learn!

  6. Hey thanks for your warm wishes on my post. As my silly security system doesn't always let me see the links I felt a wee bit like a queue jumper being number 1. With the time difference there isn't always a huge amount of Friday left here... Anyway great flips - that sunburn looks ouchy. Do you grow aloe vera? One of the best things ever for sunburn and natural is best - just cut open a leaf and smear it on. Also love your insect photos - fantastic. Hope they stay away when you spray - think of that egg sack as her baby carriage - she's a mom too. (I know I know, but I'm totally weird when it comes to insects.) :-)

  14. That has to be the worst place to get burned. I've been there!!

    We have ants, too. I kept spraying, but they would find another place where I didn't spray to come in. Now we have traps. I hope they work!

  16. Okay, that spider pic freaked me out! I had to scroll down fast! I, too, flipped off the socks without mates around my house this week? WTH do they GO??

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOVE the pictures-but ouch, your poor skin. That picture made me hurt. Of course, I have a stripe that shade across my head. That and the top of your feet being burned have GOT to be the worst.

  18. Again with the car? That stinks! I hope it's a cheap and quick fix. I'm with you on the missing socks and never-ending pile of laundry. They can flip off for good! And your sunburn? :( Ouch! Hope it heals quickly!
    Thanks for stopping by earlier. Hope you have a relaxing weekend.
