I Don’t Just Link You, I Love You!

by Marinka on November 14, 2008

One of the best things about blogging for me is reading other people’s blogs and figuring out how I can steal their material without them noticing. Obviously, I’m kidding. I perfected the technique already and they don’t suspect a thing. It involves liquor and Jedi mind tricks.

But every day, there are posts that make me laugh so much that I can’t believe that these people aren’t going to bill me. (That’s an expression. I’m not paying you people a cent. Fucking capitalists.)

So now, for absolutely no charge, I am going to share the funniest things that I read this week.

You’re welcome. And no, there is no way that you can ever repay me. Although if you could change your child/pet/beloved’s name to Marinka, that would be a good start.

Disclaimer: I’m not listing everyone that I love and who makes me laugh because (a) it’s Thursday night when I’m writing this and I want to watch The Office and Sarah Silverman and maybe say hello to my husband at some point; (b) I don’t want to shoot my entire blog-love wad in one post. So, I’m holding back.
Heather of Queen of Shake-Shake is one of my most favorite bloggers ever and every time she comments on one of my posts, I sit a little straighter in my chair. So, I really appreciate her commenting early in the day, and not in the evenings when I’m slumped over with a glass of wine. She cracked me up this week with some of her google searches. Which were awesome. I can’t wait to read her book.

I am new to the Wild ARS Chase, but reading about how Andy met his ex’s father I became a fan for life.

This post on Life Just Keeps Getting Weirder made me laugh so much, I’ve been returning to it on a daily basis. I basically start laughing in anticipation as the page is loading.

The lovely Vodka Mom is teaching a classroom of patriots.
The only reason not to read June Cleaver Nirvana is if you’re one of those freaks who hates happiness and laughter. I loved this post about her husband reading her blog. Not that I’m bitter that mine refuses to read mine, or anything.
I know it’s not polite to laugh at other people’s fashion sense, but what the hell, I’m shallow.
So, please check out these blogs and laugh. Because it’s Friday, and you deserve it.

I’m going to read these links, because I think you are hilarious and I’m hoping it takes a lot to make you laugh!


Vodka Mom November 14, 2008 at 4:22 am

That was fabulous! Thanks for the shout out-and now I have MORE damn blogs to read. They were great, by the way. Now, can I find SOMEONE to teach my class for a couple of days so I can stay home and read blogs? Any takers???

You calling me funny is like the Pope calling me Catholic. Bad analogy but you get the idea.

xoxo, SG

I awarded you today over at my blog. Friday love in the house! Now, I’m off to check out some of the bloggers you love!


Sophie, Inzaburbs November 14, 2008 at 7:11 am

My reader is already full to overflowing.
Still, links to quality blogs like these … appreciated.


Miss Britt November 14, 2008 at 7:43 am

My Google Reader hates you now. Just so you know.


Paula November 14, 2008 at 7:49 am

Oy, Marinka, you’re killing me here! I clicked, I read, I giggled and I added them all to my reader … while I’m at work. I hope I find the unemployment line just as amusing.


Andy November 14, 2008 at 8:28 am

Son of a bitch you are lovely. I am happy to hear the night terrors I get from my ex’s dad caused you to laugh. That’ll be 25 bucks.

Oh, and I’m glad we found each other. Because your blog rocks my proverbial socks.


Heather, Queen of Shake Shake November 14, 2008 at 8:46 am

I make you sit up straighter in your chair? Now THAT is a scary thought, that my insanity would do that to a person.

And just so you know, I don’t link you unless I love you either. If you could see the notes I put on your post when I share them in my google reader, you would think I’m stalking you. Which I am. All the way from Alabama, I’m *that* talented at Jedi Mind tricks.

Can’t wait to read these blogs you’ve linked. Fresh mait! Yay!


Mojo November 14, 2008 at 9:24 am

I am cracking up! Thank you for the much needed laugh.


Madge November 14, 2008 at 11:54 am

yea! more blogs to read, less housework to do.


Kimberly November 14, 2008 at 1:59 pm

One of my favorites is Life Keeps Getting Weirder too. I’ve been saying ‘supernatural shafting’ all week.

But, are you insinuting that there is something wrong with those boots? You never know when you might have a yuppie rodeo to attend.


steenky bee November 14, 2008 at 2:29 pm

Excellent picks! I have a girl-crush on Vodka Mom. I shall go check out the others. I also stalk the June Cleaver from afar. I read that post and it cracked me up!


Anna Lefler November 14, 2008 at 3:48 pm

Oh. My. Total. GOD.

In the words of Wayne Campbell (to whom I turn for guidance in all matters spiritual and otherwise):

“I’m not worthy! I’m not worthy!”

Girl, you made my day/week/year/life/whatever because hearing from you that my blog makes you laugh that hard is like having Angelina Jolie tell me, “Nice ass.” (Aside: I think you came off well in that analogy.)

THANK YOU for including me in your first-ever blog-love wad shot! I am honored and I must think of a way to reciprocate. [Hmmm…how can I find out what porn she already has…?]

Thanks for sharing the funny links.

I know I only visited your site for the first time two days ago, but holy crap your ingratitude floors me: where’s my freakin’ shout out?? LINKS???

Hey Vodka Mom, why don’t you teach your class, and I’ll write your blog. No really. See, Marinka’s been teaching me those Jedi mind things. The liquor…I can’t discuss that.


Kylie w Warszawie November 15, 2008 at 2:57 am

What do you call it when you quit your blog? Going offline?

Yeah, I can’t compete, I should go offline.

But thanks for those links! I already read Vodka Mom (we’re all about the Wodka over here), but I’ll be checking those other ones out soon!


Sarah November 21, 2008 at 12:55 pm
