Friday Flip-Offs, 6/4 Edition

This is Friday-Flip Offs, the place to rid yourself of all that random annoying crap that seems to worm it's way into your life and fester like a boil just below the surface waiting to explode.

Gigi at Kludgymom is the brains behind this brilliant idea. Please stop by and give her some love. She's got some great FFOs to read. No one does it quite like her.

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

To my laptop that has been nothing but a possessed piece of crap since day one... your black screen of death couldn't have come at a worse time, but you are replaceable and I refuse to let you ruin another day. Flip Off!

To that nasty guy at the gym showing everyone body parts that should be hidden away... EEEWWW!! You are lucky I hadn't eaten much because I probably would have upchucked all over you. Flip Off. (And get some longer shorts why don't ya.)

To myself for packing in such a rush that I forgot to pack a curling iron and essential hair accessories for our trip. Where's your head girl? Flip off!

And lastly,

To my blog that has made me miss 2 weeks of work-outs and let my house go to crap... monopolizing entirely too much of my time. Your days are over. Flip off!

Ah, It never ceases to feel amazing. 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 you won't be sorry!


  1. I used to train in a gym and believe me...i think i might have just thrown up in my mouth a little just thinking about it! yuck...

    seems everyones laptop is on the fritz these o key is really ticking me off!

    happy friday!

  2. it is amazing how much of a time suck blogging can be.

  3. My house, laundry and even my kids have suffered because of the time suck blogging (and all that comes along with it) can be. Feelin' ya!

  4. Blogging is like crack. It pretty much
    consumes all of my time!!

    I say you just walk up to the guy at the gym with a gift wrapped new pair of long shorts, hand them over, and walk away :)

  5. Great FFO! I have dealt with the black screen of death on my laptop too. GRR

  6. With ya on the laptop issues, as you know. I'm enjoying my new one immensely and not trying to think about the $ I had to spend on it.

    Ewwwwww to the guy at the gym. Get a CLUE.

    We'll all figure out the Bloggy Balance one of these days :)

  7. LOL great post...I use to go to the gym, but now I just do it at home! Best investment ever, exercise machine LOL

  8. I am glad that I am not the only one who has issues with blogging and trying to do other things. I will flip-off my blog too. haha!

  9. Ugh! The gym guy! Ugh! visual images! Really, short shorts should be OUTLAWED.
    Liking your list - excpet the bit about "your days are numbered" to your blog...?? Don't tell me you're STOPPING??

  10. You can't flip off your own blog, can you? LOL! Hey ... did you get the name "Beautiful Mess" from the lyrics to "Better Than a Hallelujah"? I really listened to that song today while I was cleaning house and one of the best lines uses that phrase ... "what a beautiful mess we are."

  11. I'm with Beth. You can't flip off your blog. I like it here and won't tolerate you treating one of my favorite blogs this way! lol As for the guy at the gym with the daisy dukes...flip off! Nasty. Nasty. Nasty. Yuck!
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my "Child Sexual Abuse" post Lish. I always love seeing your beautiful face in my comments. :) Have a fantabulous weekend! (And yes, I made that word up. lol)

    Kristi, Live and Love...Out Loud

  12. This is too funny! I'm sitting here reading your blog and having a good damn laugh =) I might just have to hop along next Friday.


  13. Ha! I love how you can flip yourself off and your blog in the same post!
    I'm with you on the essential hair supplies....couldn't enjoy a trip or getaway without them, hate to admit.
    Don't give up the blog, though! I'll admit there aren't enough hours in the day, and this past week I didn't post for at least 9 days in a row....

  14. Love you flip off's.

    Don't stop you blog though...I am stopping by to let you know that I have an award on my blog for you :)

  15. You know I LOVE this feature!!! It cracks me up!!! Please don't stop your blog, I would miss you too much!!!

  16. Sweet Jesus! I hope you aren't quitting the blog! Starting with a blank slate is best, don't you agree? You just needed a little time off. :)

  17. Ewww, gross to the gym guy. That's right up there with people who don't wipe their sweat off the equipment. Yuck!

  18. I had been too busy to blog, and just got back into it... it was hard to get back in, but now I am back in, it's sucking my time again...

  19. Hey there! I am stopping by from Mom Loop Friday Follow! I'm a little late!

    I'm so glad you joined us, and I hope you'll stick around. Love your blog!

    I'm your newest follower! Hope you'll stop by my blog too:)


  20. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog. Yes, the oil spill is very devastating! I hope I can keep up with the Friday Flip Off ha ha. I can relate to a lot of these posts and that makes me feel good.

  21. I'm so looking forward to next Friday's flip-offs I could start right now. Who's the chump who's listed as numbers 27 AND 28 on the blog hop top x list? Yup, that would be me. Is there a way to delete one? Chock that one up as another humiliating screw-up for me. Duh. :\ I'm getting into this, why? Oh, and pleased to meet you!

  22. So the guy at the gym? I'm totally picturing that Friend's Episode where the guy comes into the coffee house and you can see his junk? He's dating Phoebe I think.
