Awesome/Not Awesome

It's a two-fer today - Friday Fragments and Friday's Freewrite! If you join in, be sure to visit Half Past Kissin' Time and/or Ordinary and Awesome to link up.
My personal theme today is:

Awesome/Not Awesome.


§ My friend Heather is splitting up with her boyfriend. They live(d) together, and since things are ending, it's kind of awkward at home, so she is spending a lot of time at my house. She cleans, helps with the kids, and she cooks. Friends - I.have.a.wife.!! And it's awesome. And I may never let her leave.

Not Awesome:

§ "Someone" allegedly her ex who is innocent until proven guilty smashed the crap out of her car. Jumped on the roof, shattered her windshield, dented it all over. What.an.ass.


§ My oldest two kids are going to a church camp in Virginia this coming week.

Not Awesome:

§ My kids will be out of state, without family, for a whole week, for the first time ever! And I will miss them!


The customer in the truck ahead of me at the Chick fil A drive-thru this morning.

OK, so there was a hooman driving, but it's pretty awesome that it totally looks like the dog was handling everything from this angle.

Not Awesome:

TV hauling FAIL.

And these are all just awesome. They make me laugh and I hope they'll make you laugh too!

(courtesty of Criggo...check it out, that blog cracks me up!)

Have a great weekend!

Momisodes said...

ROFL! Those last few were hilarious :)

So sorry to hear about your friend's ex. That sounds frightening. At least you're reaping some benefits though :)

Yikes. Are you sure you want to attract her stalker to your house?!

I love that you took the doggy photos; he's super cute.

That ad-Sofa King funny!! :)

--Heather-- said...

love, love, LOVE, awesome not awesome! I might have to use it this weekend!

We all know Break-Ups are hard. I feel for your friend, tell her to feel free to cook, clean, and play her sorrows away! *wink, wink*

OMG...I can't believe that "someone" bashed her car up like that. Crazee people!!

And yay for having a wife.... all of my friends are lazy, I think.

Unknown said...

Stopping by from Friday Fragments, those were hilarious and I am so jealous that you have a WIFE. I could really use one to clean up so I can blog more LOL

Mary Ellen said...

Stopping by for Friday Fragments. Loved the awesome/not awesome. I might have to steal - er, I mean - borrow that idea!

I especially enjoy a dog who drives AND does the drive-thru.

mub said...

Yikes, it sounds like it's WAY a good thing your friend is getting away from that guy!

Claudya Martinez said...

I love the Whore cartoon. Very funny.

Jennifer said...

LOL at the dog in the car!

I'm glad your friend is with you--but yikes w/ her ex and her car! Scary!

Twisted Fencepost said...

Great post! I want a wife, too. Correction, I need a wife, too.
Love the drive through canine patron.
What does that guy think gives him the right to demolish her car? She should press charges!
Oh, and the outlet thing.....funny!

Stacy Uncorked said...

I love your Awesome/Not Awesome take on things... :)

I need a wife, too... ;) Sorry to hear about your friend's relationship - but with the car incident, she's obviously made the right decision to move out and move on. :)

Love the pictures in the drive thru - totally looks like the dog is driving/ordering! :)

The other pictures? Sofa King funny! :)

Happy FF a day late! :)
