The Beer Fest in Idaho was exactly how I imagined it. A bunch of unattractive people stumbling around with only one goal in mind:
Drink As Much Beer As You Possibly Can.
No Matter What!
No matter if you can no longer see, let alone walk straight.
No matter if you've puked up all the beer and pretzels you've eaten. That just gives you room for more beer.
No matter if the port-a-potty has become your permanent residence.
No matter if you've lost your beer cup, I'm sure there are plenty in the trash can you can dig out.
No matter if you have already passed out on the grass, someone should be making sure your cup is full.
No matter if you are so drunk that you start posing in other people's photographs.
(We still have no idea who that bald dude is in the back)
No matter if you feel like you must hold onto the grass in order not to fall off the earth.
No matter if every person you see has an exact twin.
(Ok, check out how creepy Lin's zombie hand is. Her hand looks dead!)
No matter if you can't win an argument you've been having with that tent pole all day.
No matter if the beer cup keeps missing your mouth.
And especially no matter if you're not as think you drunk I am!
(From left to right: Shauna's mom's beer, Shauna's mom, Lin, Shauna's beer, Shauna, Lindee's beer, my beer, and me!)
(Lindee's hand looking a little less zombie-ish)
But seriously. Good effin times yo! People are insane when there is all-you-can-drink beer at stake! At some point during the day, Mike and I were standing under the tent when I felt someone grab my butt. As soon as I turn around to see who it was I get a nice hard squeeze to the boob! I look up and there is this chick standing there smiling and not wasting one other second, she does the same to Mike!
Yeah, we both got groped by the same chick. Apparently she had made it her goal to grab 300 booties and 600 boobies that day.
Hey, who are we to stand in her way?
After the fest was over, the wait for the bus back to the hotel was taking forever so we stuffed ourselves in a cab with a bunch of other drunks. And of course Mike just happens to know these people in the cab. I swear he knows someone EVERYWHERE we go!
(Cab ride back to the hotel)
After everyone had a much needed nap, we headed to dinner.
This past weekend was a blast! But before I get to the fun part of my weekend, here's a bit of the boring part....
My graduation pinning ceremony.
What's a pinning ceremony you ask? I have no idea but I went.
And I got pinned.
What is this pin for you ask? I have no idea, but I think that wearing the pin actually makes you stupider (See? I don't even use real words now!).
Mike decided to actually pin the stupid thing on me and ever since, my brain has the dumb. Or maybe it was just because I was sitting next to Lindee.
Her blondness could have somehow floated out her ear and settled into my brain. I'm better now, but didn't want to take any chances so I gave my pin to Mr. Moose the Miner here.
He's an accountant too. Obviously.
Anyway.....oh yes, this pinning ceremony....
I graduated in December but of course they only have one ceremony a year for all graduates which is why I am just now getting pinned. I have to say, a graduation pinning ceremony is ten times better than a regular cap and gown graduation ceremony. Pretty sure they don't serve wine during the comencement!
Which you think would be the reason why I skipped out on going to my cap and gown ceremony the next day but no, I had more important things to do.
Yes, a much more significant event required my attendance ...
As promised, it's giveaway time! Time for you to get free stuff, who doesn't want free stuff right??
Especially when it's freaking awesome free stuff. So what's up for grabs?? A super easy (even for this blonde) digital scrap booking software called My Memories Suite.
How do I know it's super easy and super amazing? Because I tested it out for ya. (And let's be honest here, I got it for free so why wouldn't I test it out right?) But if you know me, you know that I would never lead you astray, NEVER. So just trust me, this software rocks.
If you have been thinking about taking your scrapbooking into the digital world, now is the time. This post is a sign from the big guy upstairs that you need to start right now! Don't be scured guys, the software doesn't bite I promise.
Of course I have to share a little creation I made using the software. I found this picture of lil sis when she was a baby Michelin man and had to share it!
Check this out:
Yes. That's my lil sis! Seeing that picture made me realize how much Liam looks like Lindee as a baby so I just swapped out the pics and added baby Liam. It took all of .05 seconds.
Oh my god are you dying? I want to eat those cheekies!!
And here is an example of a template from My Memories Suite. Notice how much better the design is on this one? Yeah, I need more practice....
But back to the scrapbooking software, let's get to the contest shall we? The software is normally $39.97 but you have a chance to get it FOR FREE. Yes there are rules, but only because I want you to go checkout MyMemories.com and all their other social feeds and crap like that. You know how this works, here are the rules:
1. First Entry: Leave me a comment. That's all.
2. Second Entry: Visit MyMemories and check out their template designs, if you find a favorite, leave me a comment below letting me know.
3. Third Entry: Follow My Memories Blog and leave me a comment telling me you did so.
Every now and then I will get an email from different businesses or other bloggers who want to do advertising on my blog or have me write a review about their product. Normally it's for products like sex toys romantic candles, and awesome hand bags, but I've never received a request like the one I received this morning.
I open my email to find the following message:
Dear Pooba Editor,
I came across your blog while looking for people who have talked about pooping and wanted to reach out to see if you were interested in sharing a graphic my creative team and I designed. If you're interested - I'd love to connect.
Thanks! XXXX XXXX
"Looking for people who talk about POOPING"
Do I really talk about poop that much? I thought I'd do a search for the word Poop on my blog to see if this guy was just talking out his ass.
I started listing these all so important pooping posts below but realized it is a never ending list. So I stopped at 14.
Am I really spending this much time linking up blog posts that talk about poop?
Yes. Yes I am.
