Thursday things I’m thinking about

Am I the only person who cracks up when a parent uses technology?  I mean I’m sure the Kid laughs his butt off most every time I ask him for tech support but for some reason the funniest person ever to use technology is my mother.

facetiming with mom

That meme above is completely legit, it’s what I see when I facetime with my mom.  Every. Single. Time.

Last year when she went with me to visit the Kid, the Kid showed her how to use Siri.  And now she thinks Siri is her best friend.  She uses it incessantly.  I tried to teach her other things like how to use different apps, apps like Waze for traffic, but that didn’t work out.

She didn’t like it.  And it was almost as bad as teaching her how to use her computer.

But the most annoying thing is when I ask her something.  Instead of the typical mom advice that I’m used to getting, you know that sweet sound advice you really need, she tells me to ‘Google it’.  What the hell mom?

How well do your parents understand, the google?  

Can your parents facetime with you and actually show you their entire face?

Someone tell Rob Kardashian Instagram is for workout pics!

Someone needs to call Kris Jenner or one of those sisters, (whose initials all begin with K because that’s easier than typing all those names), and have them reign that brother in.  Dear Lord.  If you haven’t heard, yesterday Instagram shut down Rob Kardashians account because he posted naked and explicit photos of his ex, Blac Chyna, and then went on a rant accusing her of cheating and using drugs.

Stupid

I get that you’re hurt and angry but try to remember you are a father.  Isn’t that really the most important thing?  Protecting your child?  Shouldn’t you be more concerned about the way that she would feel knowing what you posted?  I mean regardless of what her Mother did or didn’t do, that’s just wrong, and I’m pretty sure it might be illegal too.

Man up Rob, just man up.

Don’t worry if you didn’t get a chance to see Rob’s crazy Instagram rant because apparently he’s moved it on over to his Twitter account and is continuing there.  I’m not posting the link because I feel sorry for his child.

Jeez

I’d like to intervene and help the poor guy out.  If you can’t man up, then at least follow some southern girl etiquette.  If you don’t have anything nice to say, then whisper, and by all means, preface it with, ‘bless her heart’ or ‘we’re saying a prayer for her’.

And for goodness sake, if you ever do get your Instagram account back, remember Instagram is the place to post pictures of your Garmin or your fitbit stats, or your runkeeper stats, not personal drama.  We might be okay with the occasional animal pic as long as you keep it to a minimum, but keep it clean Rob, keep it clean.

What things do you post most often on Instagram?

There’s a card for that.

Just in case you aren’t sick of silly outtakes, here’s another shot from the famous photo shoot.  You know, the one where mom pretended to be Herb Ritz and I pretended to be Christie Brinkley but we’re both just really awkward….or at least I am.

the Undress

Use code Flower35 to get 35% off of one of these portable changing rooms!

I’ve changed clothes right in the middle of the mall parking lot wearing the Undress and no one had a clue.  It’s genius.  Go get one.

Yesterday, we went to pick out a card for a friend of mine who recently had surgery and I was getting all kinds of pissed off at the poor selection.  There were over 5,000 cards available.  Four were in the ‘Get Well Soon’ section.  FOUR.  But they had all kinds of cards for ‘congratulations on your recent coming out’, ‘welcome to your new gender’, ‘sorry to hear about the loss of your partner’s pet’,(not your pet mind you, but your partner’s pet!)

What the hell? What happened to the typical Happy Birthday, Get Well Soon and Across the Miles cards?  Where did they go?  Of course, just as I was bitching up a blue streak we came across the mack daddy of all cards.  It said, ‘Running is an Accomplishment, Congratulations on your recent race’.

No way!

A running card!  An actually congratulations on your race card!  When did they start printing running cards?  And then I looked at Mom and said the better question is ‘why have you never bought me one?’

Has anyone ever bought you a congratulations on your race card?

Did you know they had congratulations on your race cards?
