If My Kids Had a Blog (and Spell Check)

by Marinka on September 14, 2008


Mom/Mommy keeps watching that clip of Sarah Palin and Hillary “She Should Have Been President” Clinton and laughing. But it’s a scary laugh, sort of mummbly and weird, so we are taking over the blog for a while.

Poop! Fart! Diarrhea!

Yesterday, she went to a salon to get her hair colored, we mean, done. Her hair done. It’s this huge production because it takes hours and then we have to hear how funny the guy who does her hair is. And how one year, he dressed up as Barbie for the Halloween parade. This is what it looks like now. She had the lady at the salon photograph the back of her head. And she said that the lady took the camera and said “one, two, three” before clicking, even though Mom/Mommy didn’t have to pose or anything. This is what her hair looks like now. You may want to say something, because when she came home yesterday and Dad/Daddy said “Is it different?” and it was a bad thing to say. Very, very bad.

Here is some art, because this blog is based in New York:

First person who can correctly identify where in NYC this sculpture is gets a wedgie!

Today we saw our downstairs neighbor in the elevator and he said, “I can hear you kids playing the piano.” And she said, “priceless music, absolutely free!” The neighbor nodded. Why is the neighbor eavesdropping?

Ok. now we’re bored. And hungry. This is stupid. And boring.

I LOVE this idea for a post. I might have to copy it! By the way? Your kids are totally funny!

Hilarious! I would love to guess where that sculpture is but I’ve never been to NYC. How sad is that?

LOVE the color! I’m jealous!!

Oh, Daddyrinka. Have you learned nothing in all your years of marriage. Better to remain silent and be believed a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.

Loved the post! Laughing out loud as usual. Poop! Fart! Wedgie!

Husbandrinka is not alone. Insta-Husband has also been known to inquire “You got it cut? Really? And colored? Huh.” Insta-Husband’s shins would like Insta-Husband to know how much it hurts when they are kicked and would like to remind his brain how much more comfortable life is when he just agrees.

I think Sonrinka should start a pokemon blog. “Pokemon in NYC”

Oh, husband. Dumb, dumb man… The only thing worse? Is the man (not husband) who not only notices a change in hair cut/color/style, but knows EXACTLY what was changed (ahem, my boss, ahem) – that’s just creepy. But knowing SOMETHING was done (or guessing it was) is the key to male survival 😉

I know exactly where this is, but it wouldn’t be fair. Although I love a wedgie!

maybe husband didn’t notice because your hair always looks beautiful?

that looks like the bull. is that bull in ny? or chicago? ny, right? the one with the balls? but an abstract version of it. if the bull were standing on his hind legs. and raising his fists in anger at all the tourists who took pictures with his balls.

So, did you smile on three?


PsychMamma September 15, 2008 at 2:07 pm

Love the back of your head, the sculpture is freaking me out a little, and your kids’ blogging is hilarious (fart!)! 🙂

I’m glad I’m not the only one who keeps watching that sketch and laughing.

Your color is gorgeous and men are stinky. It’s just the way it is.

And although I don’t really want a wedgie, I finally want to be able to answer something first (since I never will over at Anymommy’s), so I’ll say that the sculpture is in the garden at the Museum of Modern Art.

Marinkids – will you please ask your mommy who makes that fabulous bag? K, thanks! TTYL!
