Here's What You Missed This Week 6/16/13 - 6/22/13

What a week! It started with Fathers' Day, of course. We went to Funspot in New Hampshire. If you've seen the documentary "The King of Kong" (and you should, even if you give zero fucks about video games), then you'll recognize it. That's where the end takes place. Funspot is the largest arcade in the world! The top floor is all classic games, and they even play 80's music. I got the #7 top score on Tetris despite the fact that I hadn't played in at least a decade. Because I am just that awesome.


Monday, I went to see Rancid at the House of Blues in Boston, which is always a good time. My BBF (Best Bassist Forever; didn't you know that was a thing?), Matt Freeman, wore a Bruins Jersey, even though he's from California. Because Rancid is a class act.

Ask me if I needed to zoom in to get that. G'head, ask. NOPE.
They even announced the final score when we beat... Whoever we beat. Suck it, Not the Hometown Team! Sports! (Sorry. Not a hockey fan.)

Let's talk about my blog, huh?

What I Wrote

Tuesday was the biggest day of my blog's life. Seriously. Amber from Parenting. Illustrated with Crappy Pictures drew me interviewing my son, and everyone and their mother came over here. Welcome, eveyone and their mother! I hope you don't mind that I use swears that are a lot worse than "crappy"! My Son and I Are Crappy! (it's a good thing)

On Wednesday, I revealed the secret Jedi mind trick that will have everyone begging you to eat their brownies. The Brownie Phenomenon

Theme Thursday this week was about concerts, so I told you about the Rancid show... I Might Be Too Old For Concerts

...and coincidentally, a post I wrote about sneaking backstage at a concert was published on In the Powder Room the same day! So it was a back to back rock block of Jenn. How fun for you (I assume). How to Sneak Backstage

Late on Thursday (well, late for me, anyway), Amber posted Interview Your Kids, Part Two, which included a fun list of questions to ask them about themselves. So I did. I posted it on Friday. About the Boy (as told by himself)



What I Shared

Remember, a whole paragrah ago, when I went to Rancid? It was with Mike Kane, and he said the funniest thing I've ever heard over dinner before the show. If you or someone you know likes famous people, you need to check out his Facebook page.  

A random song from 1994 popped into my head late one night, so I emailed myself to share it with you in the morning. You are welcome.

I generally like the Huffington Post, but apparently, they've teamed up with Oprah, and Oprah can suck it. Here's why.

Facebook changed how they operate for the third time this week, so I had to make a little picture to tell you how to Like me. Is there anyone out there who doesn't want to punch Mark Z. by now?


What I Read

Tracy from Momaical has been so consistently funny lately, I almost want to kick her ass... But I'm lazy, so I think I'll just read her blog and be super jealous instead. Shit No One Tells You to Expect When You're Expecting

Are you gay for science? Do you have at least one kid? If you answered "yes" to at least one of these questions, you will heart Science of Parenthood. Archimedes' Bathtime Principle

Vikki from Laugh Lines posted reason #3462 why her husband is so fucking rad. If You Need Me, I’ll Be in the Bathroom. With the Wine

Do you hate exercise? Me, too. So when Adrienn started a new blog about how fitness sucks, and asked for guest posts, I was all, "Holla!" And she holla'ed back. You can holla at her too, if you like. I Hate My Personal Trainer

Tweets I Enjoyed






What a rad week. If you follow me on Facebook, you probably already know that I have crazy stories about Friday brewing up for you in my blog pot. Are you excited? Are you? You should be! But for now, go get some sleep, or go to the zoo or something.

See you next week!
