Orange Peel Poll Results

I am sure it is becoming obvious to most of you that the additional calorie and alcohol content of my long weekend has left me too lazy to come up with anything of real value to write about. So today I will bring you some interesting answers to the ‘other’ section of yesterday’s poll . To refresh your memories these refer to Gary’s ingenious clementine peel.

The answers people added were:

Carmen Miranda’s Bra (very nice and creative  – not sure about the single strap though)

a pocso, womens brest… (um, what the hell?)

opera glasses (creative)

Snuffleupagus (nice, in celebration of Sesame Street 40th anniversary)

sunshades for someone with a long nose (ok, a stretch but maybe)

and this one which is a bit concerning and of course my fave

woman w/ a vertical C-section scar (thank goodness mine was horizontal, I would hate to look like this!)

Anyone care to claim these gems?

Are We Having Fun Yet?


Well I certainly am. 

As luck would have it, I was crowned the ‘Get Real Girl of the Week‘ on my new favorite radio station 107.1 FM in Minneapolis (alright so I don’t live there but we cares) My two new BFFs Liv and Colleen interviewed me for this week’s show that had the theme ‘Are We Having Fun Yet?’ (one of my favorite quotes). They found me from my 50-something Mom Blog post about a recent birthday celebration for a friend. Pretty cool, right?

You can see the blog post here. And this is the link to the get real girl of the week interview podcast. It’s a long clip but if  screw around with the slider I am about 3/4 of the way in. I need to figure out how to grab that piece of the audio out and embed it here. Till then, humor me with the effort.

Oh, and yes, I know that I used amazing 2 times in one sentence (I hate that) and of course I am aware that a NY Jewish girl speaks about twice the amount of words per minute than those who live in the Midwest.

All in all it was a blast and I can add it to my list of fun things I did this weekend.
