Staff Meeting With Myself

  

Minutes from Happy Meals & Happy Hour staff meeting. 9/21/08

In attendance: Me, Angel Me, Devil Me.

Me: OK , I've called this meeting - wait - where is Devil Me?

Angel Me: Do you want me to call her?

Devil Me: I'm HERE. Chillax.  What. Why are we here.

Me: Please stop Twittering. We're having  a meeting to address some concerns I'm having regarding our responsibilities and actions lately.

Devil Me: UGH.
Angel Me: I so agree with you.

Me: OK: Item #1: "Time Spent on the computer". Who wants to address this.

Angel Me: Ooh me! I feel guilty that it's taking time away from the family , and housework, and volunteering at the school.

Devil Me: You're a tool.

Me: OK, What would you like to say?

Devil Me: We're totally behind in visiting our commenters, Mom Bloggers Club, SITS, Humor-Blogs and Humor Bloggers.com. And there's a new group called Twitter Moms that we need to join.

Me: OMG. I know - You're right.

Angel Me: Don't listen to her! You haven't made dessert for the family in 3 weeks!

Devil Me: Do you have any idea what you missed on Twitter today?

Me: ACK! What?

Devil Me: Well you'll just have to scroll back and catch up.

Angel Me: It's OK! Why not look into some new recipes or start a puzzle?

Me: I should help out at the library.....

Devil Me: Google Analytics said your numbers were down last week. Probably because you didn't visit anyone.

Me: WHAT??? I was busy uploading Not Quite Hot Enough bloggers!

Devil Me: Also, I heard that everyone at Humor Bloggers is going to be on The Today Show. The same day as The Jonas Brothers.

Me: Meeting adjourned.

Angel Me: But-!

Devil Me: Suckahhhhhhh.

That was hilarious!!!! Your family can't make their own ice cream or get a cookie for dessert? Enough said, the blogging community NEEDS you!!!

Meg said...

Blogging and Twittering has made me realize how I've enabled my family to be helpless all these years.

You're actually doing a good thing by ignoring them!!

McMommy said...

Um...hello?
Were you going to invite ME to the meeting?
I've only been 100% completely intertwined with you for the past...oh I don't know....SEVEN DAYS!!!!!

Wait.

You need some space? Is that what you are trying to tell me?

Oh Hellz no.

Julie said...

"You're a tool"....ahahahahahaha priceless!

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

Ouch - this hits way too close to home.

Mandy said...

HILARIOUS!

sassy stephanie said...

Oh man. That was too effin funny.

scargosun said...

Until Angel grows a pair, Devil will always win.

Tenakim said...

Sounds to me like you were an over-achiever before blogging and Twitter- Embrace your Beta mom status!

Jen said...

I agree with your first commenter. You are so needed. Don't listen just keep blogging.

Lauren said...

Not surprised at all. When I work at the theater I see people who cannot be away from their cells for the lousy 15 minute intermission. Oh well. Hope you are having fun!

amelia bedelia said...

hey send the angel to my house when you get done. i need her!!!!

Wendy said...

Too funny..

JenniBeanV said...

Are there refeshments at these staf meetings?

Lipstick said...

LMAO!!! Sounds like Angel You is an alpha mom.

BacktoBarnwell said...

I like the devil you best...Maybe I need to put a hit out on Angel You, so you can begin work on Hot Boyz with out any distraction.

BacktoBarnwell said...

Ummm, that was devil ME who posted that I think...

BacktoBarnwell said...

And one more thing. They say that blogging helps your immune system and your emotional health...So, maybe the fam wouldn't be able to tolerate you if you didn't have the occasional affair with the IMAC and blogger.

texasholly said...

Too much sugar is bad for your family.

Threeboys1mommy said...

I made you a special dinner, raided my mojito garden, I even purchased the super deluxe aero bed for your visit... and you never came... sniff... sniff.

That won't keep me from visiting you though.

Swirl Girl said...

did your 'self' have a conversation with my 'self'?

I am afraid to join Twitter - I'll never get off this frickin' thing.

Terri said...

I don't need twitter. susaninthepsychward calls me all day telling me what you all are up to.

don't deprive her of that joy.

Natalie said...

i know what you are feeling. i feel it too! but lately i haven't been so great of a blogger either! i'm not sure what is up with me. i am doing an awesome job of holding down the furniture with my backside though. really...amazing. you would be so impressed!

Cathie said...

I am afraid I have two devils and no angels! Good stuff!

Linda S said...

talking to yourself again, Sue? yeah, I do that...

Cheryl said...

Who really needs dessert? Isn't just getting dinner on the table enough?

because I said so said...

The angel needs a glass of chardonnay.........
Thanks for the giggle.....I needed it this morning!

jill jill bo bill said...

Lunchables have desserts built in.

Jonny's Mommy said...

The Devil You is right...I mean....The Angel you is right.

What was I saying!? Did I just right angel or angle? I didn't say you had angles did I?

They're going to be on the Today Show? Really? Cool...

Blessings From Above said...

I think I may suffer form the same addiction. Last week, my 8 year old daughter wrote a story at school where a mommy died because she was on her laptop and never heard her family tell her a hurricane was coming.

CupidsReviews Heidi said...

LoL...tooooooo funny!

Brittany said...

Agreed. My dessert making and puzzle assembling has been waay down as well.

Mama2hre said...

Ah, don't feel bad! I sat down today to check emails and my 3 year old decided to take that time to give herself a haircut! I just checked into your blog because, well....your my comic relief when when my life gets to be a bit too much! The blogging community needs you! At least the unexpected trim gave ME something to finally blog about!

Aleta said...

LMAO! That was great! Take a moment to make a desert (for the Angle You) and then get the fingers in gear (for the Devil You). There's a happy medium somewhere to be found. Loved the post - too funny!

Heinous said...

Dessert! You'll just spoil them all. They should develop their culinary talents anyway. Never listen to those angel types. They suck all the life out of everything.

Dawn said...

This was hilarious! I can so relate to that little head conversation.

I found you through Georgie. I'm showing a little blog to blog love, an idea made up from Amy,Amy,Bo,Bamey. Anywho, the directions were to find someone new to stalk,err follow, from someone on your own blog list. And, that's how I found you! I'm gonna start following you now!

Check out my blog post about it: http://dawnsdiversions.blogspot.com/2008/09/singing-blog-walk-this-way.html

ciara said...

this made me laugh my ass off! as for me, i have a love/hate relationship w blogging, twitter, etc. sometimes i love it, sometimes i hate it lol

Mags said...

ROFL...Thanks for the laughs today!!!

Candice said...

I really want to know what Bathroom Gangsta has to say about all of this...

Lisa-licious said...

I am giggling!!! You are psychic! I have the same conversations in my head! Know that your efforts shall not go unrewarded, and that you make so many people happy with your quick wit and charming prose! Now I have to get back to doing taxes in my blue George Michael dress.

amelia bedelia said...

you have an award over at my place. i will look for you on twitter, too!

Hollie said...

okay that is just plain hilarious! just found your blog and love it!

Keeper Of All Things said...

Who needs desserts anyway?

News Readin' Wife said...

Get out of my head, Happy Meals!
L-O-V-E your blog.

deconstructing jen said...

You are seriously funny beyond words.

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

I loved this one--thanks for sharing the staff meeting :)

Caroline said...

I just had that staff meeting! Pretty much ended the same way as yours! Cheers to blogging and the lack of housework....

JT said...

Wine is my area of expertise.

Back to Barnwell lead me here.

Come visit. I will not lead you wrong.

Auds at Barking Mad said...

Your alternate devil persona is correct...you haven't visited me in ages....errr, well um, ever!

*lol*

Get crackin mama!

Seriously, twitter is a huge time suck and well, I'm addicted and now that I've discovered twittermoms as well, it's all over. I've now started taping mop bottoms to my pets in order to get them to help with the housework - just throw some water and cleaner on the floor and lets the two cats and puppy slosh around in it for a while. And my two year old is better at doing laundry than I ever would have guessed. Of course, I need to teach her capful vs. vatful, but we're getting there.

It's all in how you prioritize your time! *lol*

CailinMarie said...

yes...
very much getting this...
and scargosun is very funny..

* TONYA * said...

Seriously, you need to join us over on the twitter moms bandwagon. Kids don't need dessert, it'll make them fat ... or it'll make us fat. Let's try that again, make dessert, eat it while twittering. I figure if my ass is going to get bigger from blogging then I might as well enjoy dessert too.

LiteralDan said...

I would call a staff meeting with myself, but I know all three of us would be so late as to make it pointless.

I have other appointments to keep, after all.

I'm sure you have plenty of more important things to worry about than making dessert for your family, right? You gotta prioritize your guilt just like everything else, I say.

Red Cup Mom said...

There's twittermoms? There goes the death of me...

nikkicrumpet said...

I hope they have computers in jail...disturbing the peace...but officer...I had to laugh...it was so damn funny!
