For some reason this week felt way longer than it was – I feel like I haven’t posted in a month. You hamcats may or may not care, but my life lately is mostly a lot of dentist visits (hooray for insurance finally kicking in!) and then working 16 hour days to make up the days off. Between that and fitting in all the drinking the past three weeks have been something of a blur. But here are a few quick LOL WUTs for you to discuss. And it’s an open post – so bring up anything I missed in the comments if you’d like to front page discuss it.
Freelee the banana digestion machine is apparently in a legal war with another blogger/vlogger. I’m not 100% on what’s going on there other than apparently Freelee claims the Bikini Body chick is harming people with her diet ideas? I’m sure some of you Aussie hams can fill everyone in because I probably got that wrong.
The Disney Social Media Mom Celebration is underway and some moms want to tell those of you left out how to react. I lolsnorted pretty hard over the self-righteousness and superiority of this, but apparently it’s a big big deal for the Z list mommy bloggers.
Jordan Reid, of shillshackle sham ‘fame’, is moving to San Francisco Or Somewhere Around There. Evidently she’s finding the housing costs a total shocker, I assume because she doesn’t know how to use The Google, because everyone knows SF is more expensive than friggin NYC since it’s the ‘in’ place to live right now. Despite the fact that she is having zero luck finding the home she feels entitled to, she is explaining why she has to buy the home she wants.
And finally a source tells me that GOMI was a hot topic at the Texas Style Council. Saying bloggers were “acting like it was some badge of honor NOT to read the GOMI comments” the source went on to conclude “bloggers want to be celebrities yet don’t want any of the things that come with being a celebrity”. Well we know that, don’t we hams?!
So TGIF and YOLO hamflaps. Catch my pork filled buttocks on the gram! I’m about to start drinking so I’ll probably post my phone number there at some point. Or my feet. Or my cats. You really never know what will happen when I have a crap week ended with booze.
Kristen Howerton, the wonderful human being behind “Rage Against The Minivan“, is cashing in on the latest parenting trend – shaming your children for comedic effect.
She has started up an instagram and a blog promoting her “A**hole Parents” hashtag. She put out a call on her own gram account, asking people to submit pictures. The images are basically children being children, because, ya know, how dare they. These pictures are then captioned by parents who are apparently tired of their little angels not being appropriately grateful or well-behaved 24/7.
I assume this is all supposed to be just hilarious to other parents, but it all comes off like a bunch of bitter martyrs wanting to whine about their kids refusing to act like adults. And I’m sure their kids will really appreciate being paraded as some kind of brat for the lols of the entire planet just so mommy could participate in a hashtag, but sure. Mommy solidarity or something.
Taza, of the von Derp Family Performers, is taking a break from sponsored food box posts to faff around Hawaii on a sponsored trip to some resort. While there, she shoved her daughter up to a captive dolphin because vacation or no, the show must go on.
I won’t get into my feelings about this sort of thing, but hey, the dolphin got some fish afterwards. So at least someone is getting paid for their performance, right?
I received a lovely gift today – a copy of ‘Hey Natalie Jean’, the world tour worthy freshman book effort by the blogger formerly known as Nat the Fat Rat. Because I so enjoy drinking and falling on grenades for my GOMI hamily, I will now proceed to use my day off to read this with a bottle or five of prosecco and update this post in real time with my thoughts, including pictures. Just keep on hitting refresh – I’ll get the first part up and then continue updating as I read. Off we go!
Natalie Holbrook, who recently implied her family can’t afford “private” pre-k for their child unless she bombards her blog with affiliate links, is apparently taking her 176 page vanity book on a worldwide tour.
Saying she has “a gold saint christopher, patron saint of traveling, for good book tour planning juju”, she claims her “first stop come april” is “berlin!” and went on to tweet that she’ll be all over Europe afterwards – presumably promoting her ‘book’.
She also hinted she’ll be jetting around the U.S. saying she was “having a hard time picturing which states came in what order when i began the planning for my stateside book tour”.
I guess her publishers are expecting Bratalie to be the next J.K. Rowling or something if they are sending her on a promotional trip of this magnitude. And yes, I am assuming someone is footing the bill for this globe trotting since poor little Natty was claiming this side of two weeks ago that they needed the “help in the income department” from her shopping posts full of affiliate crap.
