The post that refused to die

In order to understand what I’m about to say, you will need to read the post from Tuesday, and from Wednesday. That will be 5 minutes of your life you can never reclaim, but they are relevant.

Otherwise, you will just think I’m a raving lunatic.

But then, after this post, you will be certain I’m a raving lunatic, so it really doesn’t matter. Carry on.

This is all about the mugshot that my computer wouldn’t let me post. Some of you commented, asking Fiddledaddy to step in and work his technological magic so that the offensive photo can be viewed.

In good conscience, I could not ask him to do it. Because he would have said “NO!” As he found it insulting to would-be bank robbers everywhere. Bank robbers are people too, you know.

My sweet husband, who really should be used to me, is now convinced that I’m a few french fries short of a Happy Meal.

My blogging friend, Kelli, commented that she had not received her copy of the photo via e-mail. And I believe she was hurt by this.

Since Kelli and I have a blogging history, and she understands my level of crazy (at least she pretends that she does), and she knows all too well the affects of sleep deprivation, I sent it to her.

With only the caption: “Because you are my friend.” No other explanation.

After a few hours, I hadn’t heard back from her. Unusual, given the circumstances.

I thought I may have pushed the boundary of friendship, and she had deleted me from her hard drive altogether.

So, I checked my outbound e-mail to make sure it was indeed, outbound.

Imagine my horror when I discovered I had sent it to the wrong Kelli. To a Kelli from my MOPS group like 5 years ago. A Kelli who has no idea who I am.

Allrightythen. I quickly followed-up with an e-mail to stranger-Kelli explaining that hackers had commandeered my computer and I was not responsible for the content.

And then a lightening bolt came through the ceiling, knocking me out of my chair, rendering me senseless.

So, I told the truth.

Then I e-mailed the picture to the correct Kelli, telling her of Kelli #1’s misfortune at having received this horrendously frightening photo.

She assured me she would visit me in the poky. And today she let me know that I was now displayed on her computer desktop.

She’s depraved, that Kelli.

All that to say, that I took all of your comments to heart, and I certainly don’t want to disappoint you. What I have done, to honor your requests, is nothing short of brilliant. I took a picture of the image on my screen, and downloaded that into my blog images. It’s not as clear as the original. But, that’s probably for the best.

If this gives you nightmares, it’s your own fault. You should have listened to Mac.


If this is your first time visiting my blog, you should know that hackers have commandeered this post and…..

  • I’m speechless. But laughing.

  • Oh my goodness. I’m making so many typos because I’m laughing so hard. Good stuff. You should be the team mascot of all the SAHM’s (especially the homeschoolers!). I enjoyed it.

  • *snort* *cough* *hack*

    That was soda going up my nose as I gufaw!

  • I am completely cracking up out loud! It’s better than I imagined because, look at the reflection in the lenses! Are you totally serious that you sent that to the wrong girl? That is THE funniest thing I’ve read in months! Have you no pride, woman? Good! Because that means more entertainment for the rest of us inhibited primroses!

  • HILARIOUS!!!!!
    I am a homeschool mother to an 11 year old boy and there are times that I go into the bathroom just to hide..it doesn’t work. Perhaps this may be my go to other option. Speak in a high pitched voice and say that mommy had to go away for a minute….yeah that wouldn’t work either…but worth a try. Thanks for the great inspiration…keep ’em comin’


  • hee hee hee. LOVE IT. I think you are clearly cover girl material. Or mental ward material. That’s why I heart you.

    Is that the new couch in the background?

  • OK seriously – my bladder control is not what it used to be – after three kids I almost – and seriously almost – wet my pants I laughed so hard. This is the funniest thing – that picture – oops I just woke my girls up – gotta go get them back to bed…Sunshine

  • I think you’re officially the funniest, coolest person I “know”. 🙂

  • Man I wish we were friends

  • Aaah! That is great! My husband is laughing at me because I am laughing so hard! Whew, I’m tearing up….oops, I think I just woke my child up. Oh well, thanks for the great laugh….:)

  • That is hilarious. Oh. My. Goodness.

    That said I once invited the wrong Pam to my daughters birthday party–she lived across the country and wondered why I would invite her. It was kind of weird.

  • The wrong address! That sounds like something I would have done, and then died of embarrassment. Repeatedly. For years.

  • That should TOTALLY be your new profile picture.

    The fact that you sent it to the wrong Kelli only makes it more … creepy. Somewhere out there, a Kelli is having nightmares tonight.

  • Hilarious! And I love the leather sofa, wall colors and hanging pictures in the background! Just thought you should know that someone noticed it, after the foreground… apparition…:-)

  • OH! That poor woman! I am dying of laughter. You rule.

  • Oh you rock. Poor other Kelli must have thought her computer was being robbed by a disgruntled ballerina.

  • All I can think about is your daughter walking in and seeing you pulling her pink tights over your head. Oh. my. gosh. That has got to be the funniest picture I have EVER SEEN!!!!!!!!!!

  • Oh, that is hilarious! Totally worth the wait. Oh, thank you. I needed that belly laugh so bad!!

  • The more I look at this, the more I laugh out loud. It IS disturbing. Hilarious. My husband keeps looking at me like I’m nuts because I cannot stop giggling.

    Thank you for this!

  • Now that would be an interesting photo to have appear in my inbox from someone I didn’t know.

    A virtual holdup.

  • the glasses make it so unique.

  • Seriously girlfriend anyone that can post a picture of themselves looking that creepy, is a friend of mine!! Hilarious 🙂

  • Aaaaaaaaaack!

    Poor Kelli #1. Good thing you don’t go to that MOPS group anymore, huh?

    Love it. Chickadee is right, the glasses do add that certain je ne sais quoi.

  • Demented.


    Call me what you want.

    I know you love me.

  • Looking good! Kinda creepy, yes, but still, all good 🙂

  • Excellent, excellent picture….

  • HAHAHAHAHA!!!! I am laughing with you, not at you…

    That is too funny that you accidentally sent it to the wrong person.

  • I now have to clean off my computer from the coffee that I just spit all over it!!

    You’re killing me here! I’m so glad you posted it though. You just made my day!!!

  • Thank you! I was having the worst morning, but that just made it so much better.

  • LOL! Okay, that is the most hilarious thing I have seen this week! (okay…maybe since you posted the story about the guy who was giving his wife the tazer gun and decided to try it out on himself!) Rock on Girl!!!!

  • The picture was hilarious, but seriously? You sent it to the wrong person? I can’t keep it together!!
    I think I’ll bookmark this post as my new go-to when I’m in a funk 😉

  • Thanks for the laugh. all of it.

  • It’s always so much better than you picture it in your mind! That’s hilarious! Nice touch taking a picture of the screen! 😀 I would give a really lot of money to know what Kelli #1 thought when she opened that email! LOL!!!

  • OH MY WORD!!! Woman, you are too funny. I’m so glad I’ve been reading you long enough to know not to take a swig of diet coke before I start reading your blog. Have a wonderful day and thanks for the Friday laugh.

  • So. New allergy medication?

  • Oh the glasses make it a classic!

  • *Pant, wheez* Okay, I pulled myself up off the floor, snort, from laughing so hard, tee hee, to say you rawk!!

    Love it! I think it’s even funnier that you sent it to a wrong Kelli. (wipes eyes from tears of laughter)

    Since this started with house decor – I really like the color of your wall.

    And you should NOT moonlight as a bank robber. It would take too long to get the money cuz people would be laughing so hard you would get caught but I’m sure the cops would let you off as you have the insanity plea thing going for you. 🙂

  • You are equal parts hilarious, brave and inspiring. I want to be just like you when I grow up!

  • Deep breath, deep breath. That was great! I’m so happy that you sent that to the wrong Kelli. I can just imagine opening an email from someone whose name I vaguely recognize, seeing that picture and the words “Because you’re my friend.” I think I would call the cops! Oh my, I just started giggling again at Kelli’s imaginary reaction.

    PS Your living room really does look pretty.

    PS#2 Amazing idea to take a picture of the computer screen. Extra points for you!

  • I just blew Pepsi (and who knows what else) out my nose when I saw your picture….

  • I just spit fried rice all over my screen. Seriously, you are the woman! I admire any woman who can post a picture of themselves looking as you do with a blog following like you have and still come back for more is my hero! You go girl!

  • You . . .are. . . . hilarious! Thanks for making me laugh and laugh today. I needed it. You’re family must love living with you.

  • You have got to be one of the funniest people I have every read! I hope your husband appreciates the free comedy hour! Funny Funny Funny!
    I hope you have a very blessed Mother’s Day!

  • Much better than I expected – I think the pink is the added touch =)

  • You are one brave (or seriously demented woman). This will stand out in blog history forever as the day that mommy bloggers took over the world – sporting pink tights over their heads (and black rimmed glasses for the finishing touch).

  • I know, I know…I’m saying it yet again…I’m playing “catch up” with my blog reading. It happens more often than I ever thought possible. But I’m not complaining though. My life is full and happy, so sometimes I get behind. But good gravy it’s been awhile since I stopped by.

    It’s always fun to visit you. Girl…you are a HOOT!!


  • oh, admit it, you’re just hiding a zit!!

    You are TOO FUNNY!!!!

  • haha

    no wonder you had no response from Kelli…eek!


    it’s not that scary.

    I think the food under your kid’s eating chair was WAY scarier!

  • Oh I am just rolling here! That first Kelli must have thought she was being stalked by some serial (just so you know, I typed “cereal” then had the wits to realize that didnt seem right. LOL!) killer or something.

    Thanks for the laugh!!!

  • I am dying!! Just what I needed to see on a Friday afternoon when I have 6 kids in my house under the age of 6! That is too funny- and the story about sending it to the wrong Kelli is even funnier.

  • All I can say is you, my friend, are crazy awesome. Emphasis on crazy! LOL

  • OMG! Thanks for the chuckle. Okay, the down right hysterical laughter. I needed that.

  • Just so you know, I had a crazy busy day today and so actually didn’t click on your post first thing like I usually do! I had an email from my friend that said “Oh my gosh, have you read DeeDee today!!!” You’re famous in our circle of friends, you see. Who needs Oprah or Rachel Ray when you have DeeDee? Anywho, so I just now looked at your post!! That was totally hysterical!!!! The MSNBC folks blew it when they didn’t interview you for their spot on Mommy blogs! If you didn’t see the MSNBC thing, here’s the link:


    Is it just me, or is Kathie Lee out of her element? She seems clueless! I guess she’s lost without Regis!

  • one of the reasons I’m highly amused by this is because when I took my two boys cleat shopping, they had on flip flops. they had to use those little panty hose socks to try on the cleats. I told them about bank robbers wearing them on their heads and both boys put one on. the worker in the shoes department pretended not to smile as we continued to find the perfect baseball shoe.

  • Wow. Just….wow.

  • Oh. My. Goodness. I had to scroll down even before I read your post to see if you’d really posted the pic.
    My kids wanted to know why I was laughing so hard at the lady bank robber. The pink gave it away, I guess.

  • Wooo, gotta catch my breath…okay. THAT was worth waiting for. I’m so sorry for that poor other Kelli who I’m sure was in for a shock! ha, ha, ha, ha…oooh. Okay, my family is looking at me strangely.

  • That pic looks like it’s from security tape at the bank!!! Too funny!

  • Oddly enough this was my first visit to your blog… I shall now expect pink psychopath posts routinely. 🙂

  • I would have loved to be a fly on wrong-Kelli’s wall when she opened up her e-mail and saw that photo with the cryptic message.

    Or on your mall when you realized your mistake.

    I’m sorry to laugh at you, but that was seriously funny.

    If it makes you feel better I once attempted to forward an e-mail to a coworker, complaining about a colleague. Yep, you guessed it. I accidentally sent the snotty comment BACK to the original sender, the person about whom I was complaining.


    Did wrong-Kelli respond?

  • Well that settles it. We were separated at birth.

    Thanks for the laugh.
