Things I Learned This Weekend

Photo and video editing at www.OneTrueMedia.com

  • You can ALL be right by Del-ta.... but they're still lost and can't find you.
  • Giant dog beds are less expensive in Florida than in Georgia.
  • But everything else costs more unless you have a Cost-co in the neighborhood.
  • No amount of folding, squishing or duct taping that dog bed will make it fit in your carry on.
  • No matter how hard you tried in the store to convince yourself it would.
  • It's not as warm in paradise as one might think.
  • Video taping your friend's snot secretions is really funny when you're a little liquored up.
  • And posting the video online seems like a really good idea after a few more cocktails.
  • But even with over 200 people watching it only a handful are brave enough to comment.
  • So maybe it wasn't that funny after all.
  • Yes... we checked the sitemeter.
  • Lugie hocking is NOT sexy... no matter who you are. I'm just sayin'....
  • Apparently, you can get "all nervous" when being watched using a neti-pot and have to start over.
  • Some people can handle all types of bodily functions but when you mention mucus they dry heave. And it's hysterical to those who don't.
  • Others have the same reaction at the site of someone brushing their teeth.
  • You can say you only had one drink if you choose the size of your cup wisely.
  • The Real Housewives are very entertaining..... just like a good train wreck.
  • Even if you have different beliefs, you should show John Mc-Cain some respect cuz he died serving our country. Wait.... no, he's still alive.
  • You can get married to a 4 yr old.
  • But the honeymoon is over when your mother-in-law incites a tantrum by making your husband turn off Willy-Wonka and go to bed.
  • When you're on the bubble for a referral, you could easily develop a bad case of carpal tunnel from constant checking of RQ on your laptop or cell phone.
  • Has it been an hour yet? Maybe we should look again....
  • Apparently, I was the only person on the planet NOT on Face-book.
  • My friends took care of that..... but I'm still very confused by it all.
  • Apple pie is a healthy breakfast because it has fruit in it.
  • In paradise, you can buy liquor at a Wal-greens. 24 hours a day. 365 days a year. That's awesome!
  • It's possible to lose a tampon. After it's been inserted.
  • Kids lunch bags can be multi-functional when used as a cocktail cooler.
  • The sign at the beach had a picture of a martini glass with a line through it.
  • Which means a rum and Coke is okay.
  • Pand-ora bracelets are a contagious illness. If you touch one, you get it.
  • Kissing palm trees is only a reminder of how much we missed her on this trip.
  • How many times can one person talk about doing laundry? Seriously?
  • Sea Star makes you work for your room and board by cleaning the clubhouse.
  • But she is damn talented with her drunken no directions and no tools needed vacuum assembly skills.
  • Are those sunglasses real?
  • There are no oil marks on the road in Sea Star's neighborhood. Or are there?
  • Can you airbrush my ass a little smaller and remove the guy in the background please?
  • We tried to convince her to shave those legs, BD. We know how much you missed her. No.. I mean we REALLY know.
  • Your "online" friends ARE your real friends! In spite of what some snarky teen thinks.
  • The flight attendant can be quite snippy when you're the last two people to board the plane.
  • But the other flight attendant might of been Harvey Fire-stein who was quite comical with the jokes in a strange grovely voiced southern accent.
  • Choo choo.....

I have to agree with you about your online friends as one who actually looked at the video 9 in question) and though " man they must really care about these friends or they are really, really drunk. Oh and its not just Apple pie any type of fruit counts...pumpkin, cherry, strawberry, peach its all good for breaky!!

Sarah in MT said...

Does the girl who's driving with the beverage in the left hand and the cell phone in the right hand know you're a cop? Oh, that's right. She was "stopped at a red light" - and it was out of your jurisdiction. Got it.

Dawn and Dale said...

Of course Pipo could have gotten the dog bed stuffed in a COO....LOL!! So - did she really get it home? How funny that must have been. I purposly would have missed the flight home...I'm just sayin.

HOLY COLD! The socks with the flip flops is hysterical!

Headmeister said...

My fav of all of it is this line: "You can say you only had one drink if you choose the size of your cup wisely."


Sorry I couldn't make it, but damn - from the looks of it, I was warmer than you were by staying home! lol!

"M" said...

Loved the video!

Liene said...

What a rockin' weekend. Yeah the Neti-pot video (ewww) but it was made funny listening to the others laughing. Yeah, it was cooler in FL but way warmer than here. I'm over this cold weather. Time for the sun to start tilting so we get heat!

Kristy said...

You are too funny!!! I was one of those "uncool" people that was not on FB also, and now that I am on it, I am so dang confused, I think I will stick with my blog!!
