Freaking Friday...That it Was

Fridays just became my favorite blog day of the week. I thought it would be because of my fabulous themed Freaking Friday posts. Um, yeah. Didn't get one done yesterday. But I have a REALLY good excuse. Friday, as we all know, is the end of the work week, so the day just automatically starts out on the right foot.

Rob, honey, the right foot.

Now we're ready.

Music to scroll by
(I think these five dudes would fit in
with our group quite nicely, actually.)

First there was my homework assignment. I was picked to come up with questions for this week's Friday Fun Five at Twi-sted Edbrella by Jelena at Confessions of a Twiholic. Jelena, btw, is only four degrees of separation from Rob, which makes her Snarkier Than You's #1 Follower according to her answer in the Twitarded TwiBite Challenge. The responses, as always, are enlightening to say the least. This is one fun group of Twi-hos.

Then, after playing Mad Libs at Twilight Sagapalooza last week, I suggested to mmMoxie that it become our regular Friday night drinking game. So last night was the first Friday Drunk Mad Libs. It was a riot. I think I may have even been named an honorary member of The Mafia Saga.

mmMoxie had Lil E all set up to keep score.

While impatiently waiting for my turn to go again, there was a whole lot of twittering going on. It was chaotic, crazy, and craptastic. Of all nights, mmMoxie, Lizardstew, TigerlilyRose, and Twilove1 decided to pop their twitter cherries and start tweeting. Twitter veterans Mrs. P at TwiBite and Cullenary Curser were in on the fun, too. It went something like this.

The only time I can say I'm a lightweight.

Me trying to help them

Twilove1 couldn't figure out
what all the fuss was about.

Mrs. P can do it all -
tweeting, mad libbing, emailing,
looking at RobMusement's Robporn,
blogging, and helping newbies

Then the unthinkable happened.
Mrs. P was notified that she
had reached her tweeting limit
and could return in two hours.

Them there's fightin' words.

The twitter techtard that sent the
message never saw it coming.

In the meantime...

mmMoxie trying to
Follow and be Followed

Lizardstew trying to add an avi


Finally, the power of tweeting was restored
to Mrs. P and all was right in twitterland.

Except for one thing.

JennyJerkface was
in her Joisey accent (LatchkeyWife is my witness)
and said SnarkierThanYou was on her way over.
We never heard from JJ again. Just sayin'.

In the meantime...

mmMoxie and Lizardstew

TigerlilyRose left the building.



I see that a TwiBite Manager's Meeting for January has been called to order and I'm in charge of watching the door, so I'd better get back over there. If things are quiet while I'm there, I will put on my Beta cap and review the first two chapters of Mrs. P's FanFic debut. I see she has commissioned the talented Jeanette (aka itsjustme1217) at RobMusement to design her FanFic banner and that she's sporting a brand new blog site banner designed by the creative Amy at Anxious About RPattz.

Tip your hat to the ladies, Rob.

Happy Saturday!

OMG!!!!!! These little computer cartoons are hilarious!!!! The one of mmMoxie blowing her head up is the best...really. You replayed the whole night out in perfect order. That was the most fun I had on the computer in a long time...real long time. Thanks for thanking the creative geniuses that made my day yesterday (Amy and Robmusement). It takes a village to run a blog!!!
Your bloggy BFF

TigerlilyRose said...

ROFLMAO! That was quite a synopsis, Lees! But I think you got it all down just about right! Love the little cartoons!

@all You ladies are such a blast...too bad our Blogger BFs in the UK and Serbia miss out on the late night fun here in the States! Had a blast last night even if hubs decided he wanted me to turn my attention on him instead of my wine bottle and keyboard...killjoy, but he made up for it *wink* He playfully said it is a good thing my office in the new house is right across from the new bar in the new house! I told him I was putting a dorm fridge in there, fuck the bar, my wine and beer and dt coke will be within arms reach. I won't even have to get up!

Jenny Jerkface said...

LOL!! You make last night sound about as hectic as it was! There was so much tweeting going on I think I lost track of everything. And I probably should have said goodbye - how rude of me! STY is very demanding and I didn't have a chance. Yeah, that's it.

I hope the newbies didn't give up twittering! Hang in there!

Snarkier Than You said...

haha!!! JJ's 'puter kept crapping out on us last night - plus she works in like 50 point fonts because she's practically bling and it's ANNOYONG for those of us who are only half-blind like me.

i love twitter so much more than i ever thought i would. : )

Snarkier Than You said...

wow how many typos can i make in one little comment? answer: a LOT. oops!

Stan said...

:o( Damn time differences.

Mrs. P, a tip for you, some Tweeps have an additional account that they use when they get thrown in Twitter jail, might be worth setting one up by the sounds of it!


Twilove1 said...

@all twitter babes - So when's the next twitter mash up? I can't believe how hard I was laughing!! I'd start to type my attempt at a semi-witty reply, and then suddenly I had 5 more tweets to read, then the whole vicious cycle repeated.

Cullenary Curser said...

Last night was fun. Should probably spends some time with Mr. CC though.

And in JJ's defence, when someone says that another person is coming over, I take that as their good bye. Just sayin'

Amy said...

I love your daily theme idea Lisa! It really keeps a blogger on track, unlike me who only writes when the mood strikes.

I really love that you have such a great blogging community where you all include each other's work in your posts and give each other shout outs. I lurve it!

Anonymous said...

Sounds like a great way to end the work week. Your little cartoons were great. I'm a Twitter novice. Looked at Twitter this morning & there were hundreds of Tweets waiting. LOL

Honolulu Girl from Trueblood Twilight said...

Aw, man I missed the drunken tweeting and mad libs. Darn it, I was busy yesterday. I’ll catch it next Friday.

Lizardstew said...

Mwahahaaaa. Thanks for the recap...some of that was a little fuzzy.

spellbound said...

Well I wasn't there Lisa, but I've enjoyed your summary of last nights tweety fuckery! The little computer cartoons are hysterical!

mmMoxie said...

HOLY poop that was funny! The cartoon of my shooting my computer face off was extremely accurate!

I had a lot of fun last night. I'm drinking a little cider tonight and trying to catch up with what I missed today.

17foreverlisa said...

Hey, ladies! I will be on twitter in about a half hour. I'm in to the Bud Light tonight. Just sayin'...

@JJ - It was something else. I can only imagine what it's like for you and STY with so many followers.

@CC - I had asked JJ on twitter where STY was and why she wasn't playing along and JJ said STY was on her way over, which I took to mean she was going to play when she got there. I see STY said that JJ's computer was acting up, etc., so I think she planned on it. But thanks for the tip. When your drunk tweeting, those kinds of things can happen :)

@Lizardstew - Where the hell is Mox today/tonight? Does this mean she's revoking my honorary Mafia Saga membership? Say it ain't so! And I see that TigerlilyRose has us as an item now. It was a better night than I though ;)

17foreverlisa said...

LMFAO! You were typing your comment the same time as me, Mox. Cider, huh? Spiked?

I had ALMOST as much fun putting that post together as I did last night. Almost. And in looking back over our comments from yesterday, I totally missed that you said you were from Chicago. Lizardstew's husband from Rockford, you from Chicago. Talk about a small world!! So have you and/or Lizardstew heard of the Quad Cities? Because we live on the outskirts of what the deem to be the Quad Cities.

Dangrdafne said...

I saw the start of MadLibs but got confused on the timing and such. I don't tweet at all, but it sounds like a ton of fun. I LOVE this post! The pics are too funny. Maybe in time I will figure out all the tech stuff and get up to speed with you all. For now, I will enjoy these posts and live vicariously through you here.

Jelena @ Twiholic said...

That MadLibs thing sounds interesting. Would love to play.

I didn't know you could tweet too much! Can you imagine Nebilet on Twitter? I think she'd be constantly in jail, lol. Btw, luuurve those cartoons.

Thanks for the shoutout, Lisa. I have been very busy last week, so, needless to say, both my blog and my fic have suffered. Now I gotta make that vid for Mrs. P. too.

NibbleitPattinsonakaNebilet said...

@Jelly-I just don't get twitter, I find it all very confusing, my brain goes into overload I don't know who's talking, who isn't, who I'm answering, who I'm not and then I forget something and its total chaos. I would love to join in but we're in the wrong zone (ya boo and fucks to annie)I tried tweeting with Lisa, HG, Stan and maybe Mrs P (see I just don't know whats going on lol) but got confused and left pmsl.

@Lisa I love the video, those guys, really funny and I LOVE the Cure, huge Cure fan, reminds me of college and drinking and pissing around with friends hedge hopping, falling in fountains, piggy back fights and fried egg sandwiches-such were my drunken evenings after the pub...happy sigh

17foreverlisa said...

@Dangrdafne - MadLibs is easy for everyone but me. I'm so easily distracted, and by the time I post an answer, someone has usually beat me to it. That's half the fun, though. Definitely try and join us this Friday! And I know just enough about twitter to be myself. LOL! If you have any questions, email me!

@Jelena - I/We would love for you to play Mad Libs, too. The more the merrier. I see Nibbles has responded to your comment about her being on twitter :) Don't feel bad about RL getting in the way of your blog and ff. We'll still be here when you get back to it. But, yes, you need to try making a video for Mrs. P. She NEEDS a video. LOL!

@Nibbles - Picturing you sitting there watching the twitter chaos cracks me up. It can be really overwhelming, especially on the weekend. I'll leave to go to the bathroom or something and come back and have 25 tweets to catch up on which freaks me out. One more thing I've become addicted to because of my Robsanity. And I am SO glad that you watched the video and that you liked it. I thought it was really funny, too. I think you may be the only one who actually watched it, or maybe you're the only one that thought it was funny. Oh well. It was definitely the perfect song for the post.

Waaaah, it looks like I missed out on the funnest party ever! I was out with Rob and then we went back to his room and did *ahem* bad things to each other. He's supposed to go out with Twilove1 next week, so I'll be free to hang out with you guys.

Jelena @ Twiholic said...

@Lisa - like I said to Mrs. P. just now, I've finally started on the video today, after spending my morning waging whether I should tackle that, or ch 5. I'm too lazy to type up the entire comment in here again, explaining the frustrating afternoon I've had, but hopefully, turbulence is over. :D

Twilove1 said...

@Z Any Mouse - Thanks for the reminder, Zany! I didn't realize it was my turn to go out with Rob again already, since I just spent the last several nights with him and he's still here now.

Z Any Mouse said...

@Twilove1 - Snort! You are a very bad girl.
