Friday’s Photo Finish: BS Free Zone

April 5, 2013

I’m toying with the idea of doing a new segment called Friday’s Photo Finish. I think it’s a good way of kicking off the weekend. It’s kind of like a happy hour but in the morning and without drinks. On second thought, it’s more like a really crappy happy hour with coworkers you don’t particularly like, but they mentioned going for drinks after work, and you thought, “Oh, what the hell. It’s better than not having a drink after work.”

Listen, I’m doing the best I can here with my limited skills and resources.

This week since I’ve talked a lot about bullshit I thought this photo was absolutely perfect for today’s inaugural (if I keep up with it) Friday’s Photo Finish. Is there anything better than this sign?

Bullshit Free Zone
In that vien I bring to you my bullshit-free work for the week.

On Saturday my piece, “I Hate Playdates,” was on Mamapedia. I almost forgot all about it because I’m a mother and because it was Easter weekend (more on that in a minute). But you shouldn’t forget because it’s pretty dang funny, and it’s also the most accurate, BS-free portrayal of the modern day phenomena and resulting misery known as the playdate. My writings on this subject really ought be entered into a scientific journal somewhere because I think it’s the most comprehensive, detailed research in the field to date. For those who don’t have the time to read scientific studies, the essence of my work can be summed up like this: In my Expert Opinion Playdates Suck. I’m doing my part for the social sciences.

Then there was Easter Weekend, documented in Tweets That Make You go Hmm, which we kicked off on a very hopeful and happy note with the Easter Kitty. Screw the Easter Bunny.

Wednesday’s word was suckily. Read all about it here, and as my grandma would say: Use it in good health.

That brings me to Thursday when I was on The Epistolarians with my piece, “Ode to Mom Jeans.” This just might be my magnum opus. I may be giving up writing now. I don’t think I’ll be able to top it.

  1. Read them all and laughed through the week. Thank you. Now, back to the BS free zone- hows this?: life is good, I am beautiful, everyone thinks I rock, I’m tall and thin, and if you tell me otherwise I’ll knock you on your keester. To BS or not to BS? That is the question.

  2. Well seeing as how I read all of those posts because I stalk you, on the one hand I could say you might as well roll up your desk and hit the road. On the other hand I would say that your writing has stood the test of time and although you don’t think you can top it, you will. And Just Dance.

  3. Congrats on all your famous posts! And I love the new Friday Theme!!! 🙂
