It’s the End of the Week As We Know It (And I Feel Fine-ish)

by Marinka on April 7, 2012

Welcome to the weekend! Isn’t it weird how just a few days ago it wasn’t the weekend and now it totally is?! Crazy!

Last week was my first week as a Babble blogger and I had a ton of fun doing it. I was very worried that I wouldn’t be able to strike the balance of what I blogged about there vs. what I blogged about here, but I think I’m getting the hang of it.

You can read all my Babble posts here, but I want to give a special shout out this post about words (that I made up) that every mother should know. Even if you’re not a mother, you should probably read it to expand your vocabulary. Like, do you know what VBACation is? I didn’t think so.

Posts that made me laugh:

What My Kids Think I Do All Day While They’re At School– I could have written this one word-for-word. You know, if I were Wendi and had thought of it.

Another Imaginary Conversation With the Still Overweight and Increasingly Resentful Cat. Proof that there’s more to feline humor than Lolcats.

Thanks to Kristine for pointing me towards this one: We’re Goin’ Ridin’ on the 3 Way of Love by the hilarious Suzy Soro.

Posts that made me think:

Pitching Bloggers: There Are No Shortcuts If you’re in the blogging and/or PR world, don’t miss this one!

In Which I Defend Samantha Brick a really smart analysis of why Samantha Brick struck such a nerve, and yes, a defense of her. I’m not sure I agree, but it’s definitely worth thinking about.

Even though I don’t understand Tumblr (despite the fact that everyone’s like it’s so intuitive!), I found these and I love them. It turns out that you don’t have to understand in order to love.

Texts from Dog

Texts from Hillary

(if I knew what Tumblr was and how to make one, I’d make one called Texts from Hillary’s Hair and have each one captioned


Here’s website that I found while I was doing some, ahem, research:

Bart Simpson’s Chalkboard Writing

Ok, I just want you to know I just wasted the last 15 min reading through all of the Bart Simpson blackboards. Thank you for that.

Oh, I forgot….about Hilary’s hair… I TOTALLY agree! I was just thinking the same thing the other day, what is that woman thinking, she’s on TV for goodness sake! Doesn’t anyone advise her on such matters? It’s not chic Hilary, if that’s what you’re going for, NOT WORKING!

On a positive note….love the fat cat blog 😉

I’m torn on the texts from Hillary posts. Is the Sara Palin one the best? Anthony Wiener? I really keep going back and forth.

I loved your new words post on Babble! It made me Chardoneigh. Hopefully we will see more Marinka-isms. I am going to Nuggetize my kids because my husband is traveling for work (while I Merlotize, of course).

I really love the PR blogging article, thanks for sharing!

Am I ever going to get anything done now that you’ve sent me to those two tumblr sites?
