I have been blogging for 6 years (but have had a personal website for 11 years) and I might be a bit guilty of a few of these (highlighted in magenta)…..

1. You speak in code. (My guy HATES this!)

2. Your twitter account links to your blog, which links to your tumblr account which links to your flickr account. (Not exactly that order but connected between my blog, Facebook and Twitter)

3. You are surprised when someone asks how you are doing. Don’t they read your blog? Haha!

4. You’ve ever wrote a post titled “Things Every Blogger Should Know“.

5. You count introducing your boyfriend/girlfriend to your blog as a significant relationship milestone. (6 years of blogging and I still haven’t officially introduced him, nor will that ever happen.  Unlike me he is very private)

6. You know the difference between a tag and a category.

7. You’ve spent way too long thinking of the perfect word.  And have lost sleep when you didn’t find it. (Never struggled with a word but i struggle with titles all the time!)

8.  You are addicted to pinterestetsyheartsy (!), regretsy or dropbox.

9. Steve Jobs is your personal Jesus. (Once you go Mac you never go back)

10.  You would shank your grandmother for a book deal.

11. You have ever taken pictures of your food. Boy do I ever!!!

12. Your first thought when you get a picture taken with any large mascot is “Yes! This is going on the blog”. (I definitely have mascot pics on this blog! lol)

13. You followed @shitmydadsays before it became a television show.

14. You could perfectly replicate the header of your top 5 favourite blogs but struggle to remember your home address. (I doubt I could ever forget sweetsauer.com!)

15. You are signed up for this.

Original is here.

My brother Jeff  left town Christmas morning to meet Amanda and her family in the Virgin Islands and since he would not be around for the Sauer Family Foosball Tourney the following weekend, on Christmas Eve he came up with the brilliant idea of making a mask of his face for a “stand-in” family member to wear in his place.  He took a mugshot with his iPhone and printed it a few minutes later and since I was there when he tried his mask on…… I had to snap a pic because it was so effin creepy!

I may have mentioned before, but my little brother Jeff started a new blog last year called Funny Video Search.  On his site he posts funny videos that he finds (or that people send to him), then he makes commentary about it.  For one reason or another, Jeff finds stuff from the early 1990's the funniest and he loves to somehow connect the funniness he finds to me and the stupid things I used to do when I was just turning a  teenager. Recently he posted the following video and blogged about the awesome MC Hammer Pants I used to wear circa 1990.  Its true! I did have at least one pair of mom-sewn Hammer pants of my very own.  They were the bomb! Check out this video, it is great!!

Watching this video was great! Those gold lame MC Hammer pants are the best! You can even buy a pair here.  I had to laugh at all the moves of the dancers, totally brought me back in time 20 years. Just to prove that I once could do some of MC Hammer's moves back in the day, here I am making a fool of myself by trying to do the "Chinese Typewriter" that Hammer made so famous. Hope this makes you smile today!

I guess Snowball first made his internet debut in 2007, but I am just catching on to this now (thanks E!).  Snowball is a sulphur-crested cockatoo who loves to dance to music…and keeps a beat! Check him out, it is so cute and funny!

I hope you all enjoyed Snowball's dancing as much as I did!

I thought maybe some of you would get a kick out of this picture of me 😉
I was experimenting with some new self-portraits today and had to throw a couple of goofy ones in there such as this one ( I desperately need a haircut!)

I saw a couple of hilarious videos on Funny Video Search and couldn't resist posting them here.  You have to watch the first one first and then the second one last.

And if you didn't think that was funny, just wait and see how Streeter gets revenge for on his friend Amir with this hilarious Prank:

If you like Funny Videos, I recommend that you check out the site Funny Video Search.  Not only are there funny videos on the site, but also commentary to go with them.  The site was created and maintained by my brother Jeff.  Here are some of the categories on the site:

If you like the site then be sure to spread the word to others who like funny videos.  Thanks!

SNL did it again!
This past Saturday night, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler 'recreated' Sarah Palin's sit down with Katie Couric. 
I know some of you actually like Sarah Palin, but I think this is HILARIOUS!!  If you watched the original interview and then this skit, your eyes might deceive you into believing  that Tina Fey could actually in fact, be Palin.  LMAO!!!!

Here it is in case you missed it.

My friend Julie sent this and I thought it was really funny!

This is a
prank on a "grand" scale. Over 200 people gathered at Grand Central
Station in
New York to
pull off a ‘frozen in place’ act. The onlooking travelers who weren’t part of
the act were mystified as to what was going on.

Someone at Scrapjazz posted this today, thought it was cute!

These are actual headlines collected from local, national, and international
newspapers that are rather ambiguous. It is clear what the writer was
trying to say, but in each case there is a funnier interpretation of
the headline. Enjoy!

I have a little admission to make.  One that is going to make me look somewhat of an dummie, but it is funny enough that I can laugh at myself and share my little story with ya. 

So, late on Tuesday night after my workout I went to dinner at a Japanese restaurant with E, his mom and his aunt.  Dinner went well (yummy sushi!) and as we were leaving, the host said something to us in Japanese and then E’s aunt responded back at him in Japanese.  His parting words were, "Sayonara".  Okay, everyone and their brother in this world must know that sayonara is how you say "goodbye" in Japanese….everyone except me!!! When he said "sayonara", I looked at E’s mom and aunt and was like, "Sayonara is Japanese?????????? All my life I thought it was Italian!!!!!!!!!!!" I shit you not, people.  I seriously thought sayonara was Italian!! They all laughed at me and thought it was cute…except E who claimed to not know me!! lol.  I told them that I seriously believed it was "Cianara, arribaderche", one phrase…in Italian!!  I told them that they can all be partially to blame for this, since I have known them all for seven years now and that they are my primary Japanese influence and not once have any of them ever said "sayonara" to me in that whole time!!!!!!!  This could have been cleared up years ago!!!  I admit this story is pretty funny.  What is even funnier is that I am usually very good at recognizing foreign languages and use vocabulary from many different languages all the time.  How that one got past me, I’ll never know!!

Wednesday was a crazy busy day for me at work….I had to schedule 300 kids for our schoolwide enrichment day that I am hosting on Monday and it took me literally like 8 hours to do it.  Unfortunately I will not be at school on Monday because we are headed to Chicago this afternoon for Erick’s grandma’s funeral this weekend.  Being gone from work for 3 days also means 3 days of detailed lessons plans to leave for my guest teacher.  I was at work until they kicked me out at 5pm!

Once I left work I was headed to Stillwater where the private training studio that I work out at is located.  I was on the celly with my best friend Mary (who lives about 5 minutes from the gym) when she was like "hold on for a sec". The next thing I know she was like" Omigod Kristi, the dog just broke my nose, get over here quick!!!!!"  She had put me on hold to put the new puppy on her leash when the dog jumped up and hit her so hard in the nose that she heard the crack and then blood was everywhere!!  I got there in less then five minutes since I was already so close and watched her kids  for awhile until her husband got home.  The poor girl drove herself to the hospital which luckily was less than a mile away!  Today Mary has to get a CT-Scan so they can see where it is broken and then she needs to go to a specialist to figure out how to fix it.  I bet she is going to have black eyes for awhile too.  Poor, poor Mary!!! Oooooouch!!!!!

As far as my weight training is going….fabulous!! Going three times a week with my friend Lanee and our trainer, Jason, is working us!!!!!  My muscles are tired everyday, but it hurts so good!!

I have a ton of work and packing etc, to do today before we head out on the road.  I am taking my laptop with too! Hopefully we will find something fun to do for my birthday Saturday night!!!!!

Chi-town, here we come!

Sayonara!!!!!!!!!!!
