Good morning! Bossy hopes you had an enjoyable weekend. Bossy didn’t get to have a weekend, because it was abducted by aliens. Here’s an account of what happened:
Nevertheless, the next two weeks promise lots of excitement here on i am bossy. First Bossy will make an announcement regarding her upcoming family vacation. She’s not going to give the surprise away yet, but one of the things rhymes with Baturn, and one of the things rhymes with Rop-cup Bailer, and both things have to do with this:
Next: Bossy will be holding a contest and giving away two prizes. She’s not going to tell you the prizes yet, but one of the prizes rhymes with Build-A-Bear, and the other prize also rhymes with Build-A-Bear, but features a
And finally this week, Bossy will be featuring a slideshow of her wedding in honor of her 20th anniversary. Twenty years! 7,300 days! 10,512,000 minutes!
My how time flies when you’re bickering down the basement steps.
Dharmamama saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:35 am
Oh, wait. It’s *not* Build-a-Bear? Well, dang.
Bet you’re good at charades, too. Sounds like….
Can’t wait to see your Rop-cup Bailer! What fun.
Middle-Aged-Woman saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:41 am
I want to win the Chilled Affair, wherein I have sex with Matthew Mcconaghey somewhere cold enough to give those gorgeous pecs some mighty man-nips.
Madness saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:43 am
Can not WAIT for the anniversary edition!! Your calandar looks EXACTLY like Madness’ only SUNDAY was completely whiped out, and not by aliens .. but by GALLONS AND GALLONS of alcohol! WOOHOO!
Middle-Aged-Woman saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:44 am
And every year Husband gives me a sympathy card for our anniversary commemorating the Xth day of my sorrow. On August 10th this year, it will be 8395 days (provided he doesn’t see that Matthew McConaghey comment I left). Congratulations on your 20th.
Hallie saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:47 am
Hey, I’m impressed you didn’t show up at the party with half finished drink in hand!!
Fairly Odd Mother saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:47 am
Good God, I must be an idiot b/c Rop-cup Bailer sounds only like Rop-cup Bailer to me. Fortunately Sift Gertificate was a bit easier on my brain.
merlotmom saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:53 am
You crack me up! Sounds like my kinda weekend.
Rattling the Kettle saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:55 am
Giving away bears sounds like bad karma ahead of a camping trip…better keep your picnic baskets stowed away.
The Domestic Goddess saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:56 am
Ohh….sounds like fun.
You played Rock Band? FUN!
vuboq saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:59 am
vuboq is bad with rhymes. Can you give some more hints? Plz?
salad with goat cheese and pinenuts sounds SUPERdelicious!
blackbird saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:00 am
Don’t forget, my brother B is available to teach all of you how to crap in a hole.
You can call me, 'Sir' saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:01 am
Strange…my Friday night involved gin, as well, which also led to a red line through Saturday.
What a small world.
Andrea's Sweet Life saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:07 am
With all this rhyming, I don’t know what in feck’s going on.
But I can’t wait to see Bossy’s wedding photos! Or Wossy’s phedding wotos, whatever.
Cathy D. saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:07 am
You’re going camping on Saturn in a pop-up camper? Can’t wait for pix.
Smalltown Mom saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:11 am
Did you do a Blondie song because of your new hair color?
Ellie saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:17 am
You know, sometimes I do a little reading in the morning, a little looking around to see what’s what out there in blog-land, and I get the most godawful song in my head. For the whole day. Today? Not so much. So thanks for that.
KD @ A Bit Squirrelly saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:18 am
I went to a wedding Saturday night, sans the juveniles and Hubby drove. I had three glasses of wine down before the “Frist Dance” Sunday was rough.
andrea saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:20 am
I hope you are going to Vermont and have a blast! You are driving some sort of Saturn and you get a pop up trailer? That sounds pretty sweet. Stop by Church Street if you can. I’d buy you and your husband a good microbrew to celebrate your anniversary if I actually still lived there! Looking forward to the anniversary photos!
Avitable saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:21 am
I love sift gertificates, but not usually for build-a-bears.
MarathonMom saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:26 am
I have always wondered what a leto deck is?
Bossy's Daughter saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:34 am
My Nut Village saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:43 am
You are a better person than me. I’m not so much a camper. I took my boys to Boy Scout camp and they almost starved. I guess there’s not a lot of nutrition in sqeeze cheese and crackers and powdered sugar donuts. I silently cursed the moms that were making breakfast burritoes over the camp fire. As I sat in my mini van and read People magazine.
The Other Laura saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:51 am
Well, Bossy, I can hardly wait.
Whenever I annouce some big upcoming thing on my blog someone in the house gets a stomach virus and I have to go days without blogging. I think (for me anyway) it’s a jinx.
Jacquie saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:53 am
Oh good, I’ve been thinking of getting a top-pup-nailer for my family, I’ll look forward to your reviews. Intricate detes please, okay? Have fun!
Debby saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:57 am
Woo Hoo, something to look forward to through these long-hot days of summer. Living vicariously through Bossy!
David saysJuly 28, 2008 at 10:58 am
I have no friggin’ idea.
ms picket to you saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:05 am
I love weekends like that. It teaches the kids to fend for themselves.
Sandy_Shoes saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:14 am
Funny, my Saturday had a red line through it too. I’m too old for those Friday nights anymore! Looking forward to the camping trip!
What Happens Next saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:21 am
Twenty years!! Oh. My. Gah!
My comment rhymes with goncrats!
tj saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:25 am
…lol…You’re a gas! lol…Seriously. :oD
Jen M saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:31 am
A sift gertificate? I am so in!!
Tina saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:32 am
Do they allow Rop-cup Bailers on Saturn? Will there be moon shots?
jp saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:38 am
Your wkend sounds a bit like mine, 10 mile road race in RI, then on to Gillette Stadium for the Kenny Chesney Country Fest!
Can you say “Tailgating @ 10:00am”?!?!?!
Miller Lites on ice for 2 Days……..MMMMMMM!
Tootsie Farklepants saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:56 am
“My how time flies when you’re bickering down the basement steps”
BOSSY should put that on a shirt.
Evolving saysJuly 28, 2008 at 12:04 pm
I seriously read this post title and thought is said LIBIDO Deck. I guess we all know whats on MY mind…
Is Saturn sponsoring your family vacation??? Holy shit. That’s pretty dern awesome.
Cheri @ Blog This Mom! saysJuly 28, 2008 at 12:18 pm
Twenty years! Congrats!
Peg saysJuly 28, 2008 at 12:29 pm
Well, now that the Tour de France is over, I got nuthin’ on my plate this week. Guess I’ll follow your camping adventures and get blasted along with the rest of your peeps. Congrats on the anniversary!
(No bears for me, thanks!)
Ree (the Other one) saysJuly 28, 2008 at 1:33 pm
I think we had the same weekend. Except that whole dinner party with Martha part.
Jami saysJuly 28, 2008 at 1:52 pm
Kewl! I’ve always wanted to gild a chair and now when I win that gift certificate, I’ll be able to cross that one off my list!
Julianne saysJuly 28, 2008 at 1:55 pm
7:00 1/2 pm is my favorite time! Pull out the cocktails!
dlyn saysJuly 28, 2008 at 2:05 pm
What-in-heck rhymes with Rop-cup Bailer? This is a trick to get me to come back isn’t it?
Victoria saysJuly 28, 2008 at 2:12 pm
I’m lost…. rop-cup bailer?
This may, officially, have been the weekend of drink lots and then sleep.
Pamela saysJuly 28, 2008 at 2:20 pm
Rop-cup Bailer? It is evident that Bossy is either a) way more crafty than all of the rest of the world; or b) closer to being admitted to the senior center than we thought.
Manic Mommy saysJuly 28, 2008 at 2:34 pm
Damn! I was hoping the give away was going to be to accompany Bossy’s family on vacation. I love sleeping on the table that turns into a bed.
erin saysJuly 28, 2008 at 2:55 pm
I hope your vacation promises to be as exciting as Chevy Chase’s….
Don’t drink the Kool-aid!
MP saysJuly 28, 2008 at 3:46 pm
Rock Band is still my favorite..cause I can sign..and since I’m in the band my husband can’t yell at me to shut my pie whole!!
Sorry you lost a day….
Killed A Chair.. Is it like a Gallagher thing? Are chainsaws involved.. Bear = Chair, Hair..oooo maybe it’s a new hair cut..
Foolery saysJuly 28, 2008 at 4:11 pm
Bossy is talking like Scooby Doo again. Rav a rood racation in rop-cup railer.
Shayera saysJuly 28, 2008 at 4:32 pm
Awe, that’s just nice.
Mrs. G. saysJuly 28, 2008 at 4:46 pm
Wait! Are you going camping with Norman Mailer? Bossy, I have some bad news.
Cece saysJuly 28, 2008 at 5:05 pm
20 years? Are you serious? You don’t look old enough to be married 20 years!
Amy saysJuly 28, 2008 at 5:10 pm
You’re going to Saturn on vacation?
Sparx saysJuly 28, 2008 at 5:13 pm
Ha! I thought scooby doo too. Have a great holiday, just maybe don’t pack so much wine… ruh ro! PS, 20 years, wow. Mind you I think I have some eyeshadow that old but it never sends me any cards.
Grandma J saysJuly 28, 2008 at 5:18 pm
Bossy, bossy….I don’t have room in my upstairs closet to figure out your brain teasing scattergory stuff.
Either way, have fun!
Bush Babe saysJuly 28, 2008 at 5:43 pm
I am completely confused – except about the aliens bit. That sometimes happens to me, only I kept blaming Mr Chardonnay bottle and I really should have been blaming Martians. Thanks.
And were you a child bride…??? I look forward to the explanatory photos from your wedding!!
biddy saysJuly 28, 2008 at 5:50 pm
How do you keep track of anniversaries when you have so many husbands??
hmmm a saturn and a pop up trailer…nice
Carolyn...Online saysJuly 28, 2008 at 5:51 pm
I wish my brain could function properly so I could deduce what you’re telling us.
MeL saysJuly 28, 2008 at 6:03 pm
4Things that Spring To Mind on Reading Bossy’s Latest Post:
1) Whoa, I had no idea Bossy was a child bride. 20 years? So Bossy was married at, like, 9. Creepy.
2) Maybe it’s just that I only have boys and they are not so into stuffed animals dressed in people clothing, but I gaze warily upon Build-A-Bear. All I can think when I walk by is “$75 for a stuffed rabbit in a ballerina costume?” But free is always good, so I would take the ballerina bunny if it came by way of winning a gift certificate from Bossy.
3) We live less than 10 miles from some of the best camping in the Eastern States, but have never actually been camping here. I anxiously await Bossy’s camping tips, because after I get this baby out of my uterus I may finally insist the husband takes me camping. We need to get some use out of the tent, two-man sleeping bag, and camp stove kit that we got as wedding gifts when we got married six years ago. Six is not as many as 20, but it still goes by fast.
4) Gin and Tonics are not my friend, but after 8 dry months I would drink a gin and tonic. I would drink it even if I had to slurp it from Bossy’s shoe. That is probably also creepy, but not as much as Child Bride Bossy.
Cynthia saysJuly 28, 2008 at 6:32 pm
I loved to camp in my younger years. I haven’t ever tried a pop-up trailer. These days, I prefer a yurt because I am really really old and achy.
kate saysJuly 28, 2008 at 6:34 pm
i’ve been trying and trying, but alas, i cannot crack your code. too smart for me.
Stimey saysJuly 28, 2008 at 6:42 pm
You’re going to Saturn? Awesome. I hear the sunsets are nice.
Caroline saysJuly 28, 2008 at 7:06 pm
Oooh! I grew UP, practically, in a Rop-cup Bailer! What fun you are gonna have! How exciting! Am a little jealous!
Auds at Barking Mad saysJuly 28, 2008 at 8:04 pm
The Barking Mad crew hopes your vacation will be every bit as thrill-filled and edge-of-your seat entertaining as ours will…Well ok, edge of the seat is accurate as we are having a Staycation and the ‘rents are flying in from So Cal.
I bet you’re going to have a better time than we are.
Of course, I will miss out on the fun that IS roasting marshmallows. Darn!
Bossy's Friend Martha's Sister saysJuly 28, 2008 at 8:13 pm
Ok, Ok, Ok, Ok, too good to be true, my daughter has some crazy insane obsession with build-a-bear and I won’t take her because you can’t see her bed for all the fluff on it now. So let’s rig the contest now and know that one little girls will be thankful to the entire Bossy audience!
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:36 pm
If it has to do with “Baturn” then Bossy’s announcement has everything to do with upcoming family (spawned on that cross country spree) but nothing to do with a vacation.
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:39 pm
Oh, and seriously, thanks to Bossy’s genius and the snail’s pace of dial-up internet, I was laughing hysterically before the Weekend Schedule even loaded. The headline and opening words were enough for me.
Maria saysJuly 28, 2008 at 9:48 pm
Wouldn’t miss it for the world. 🙂
surcie saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:21 pm
You know, that’s exactly what happened to the real Julie The Cruise Director.
Brooke saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:22 pm
Pop Up Trailer??? Is that it?
SecondHand Karl saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:30 pm
Sift gertificates are wonderful and all, but they’re no build-a-bear.
Her Bad Mother saysJuly 28, 2008 at 11:54 pm
20 years? What anniversary is that? Silver? Platinum? Camper-trailer?
Melanie @ Mel, A Dramatic Mommy saysJuly 29, 2008 at 2:30 am
Congratulations on 20 years!
Camille saysJuly 29, 2008 at 3:00 am
Oh, is that how to make the next 20 years fly? Cause I’ve only been at it for 10 months, and I was wondering…
Raz saysJuly 29, 2008 at 4:29 am
A camping adventure? That’s easily my favourite type of adventure.
Plus, 20 years? Cor blimey.
Brent Diggs saysJuly 29, 2008 at 10:05 am
Twenty years and a vacation, sound like a busy week.
