from TAMN's inbox: you're emails pt II

{click here for the last installmint in the TAMN's inbox series}

Hate to be a downer during BIRTHDAY WEEK and mostly I keep these things to myself but my feelings are aching. Seriously! Is it so wrong that I'm happy? Is it so wrong to love my spinstie friend and want to help her??

{these are 100% real, swear it}
I randomly clicked on your blog and I feel so sorry for you. The fact that you have to wake up every morning and be you is more than I could ever bare. You are obviously so extremely selfish!!!!!!! I am ashamed that you are LDS as well. I believe it is self-righteous like you that make the rest of us look so bad. I honestly hope that you don't have children because the thought of you raising innocent children to grow up and be as mean, self-centered, self-righteous, selfish, judgemental, and evil as you is not fair to the children or the rest of the world. You need to realize (and fast) that being mormon doesn't automatically make one a great or good person. Just because your friend isn't living her life the cookie-cutter way you think she should be doesn't mean she is going to have a horrible life. How can one person be so selfish!!?? The sad thing is you probably know just how selfish you are, but you simply don't have the want or the capacity to care. I hope, for your sake and the world's that someday you learn how to be a good person.
IS IT SOOO WRONG TO BE HELPFUL!? I am NOT selfish! I think about other people all the time, for example I read blogs, tip generously, text even the homely MiaMaids, and also I craft. And as for the insulting of my twins Alivyiah & Tridger, you do NOT want to see me turn into MAMA BEAR!!!

WOW, I stumbled on your blog, and could not pass up an opportunity.... I had to read your entry 3 times to be sure it was not a joke. Are you really a Leader in your church, girls are suppose to look up to you and take your example? Hmmmm Ever heard of a Jack Mormon. Look at you go, and about your Best Friend who is about to take a huge leap for something she believes in. I am sure she appreciates your support.-- Hope I never meet a friend like you. Or have one for that matter.. And all these other comments.... bet it would be nice to have at least 1 friend who calls you out and tells you how wrong you are...I guess maybe I do not get the whole situation, but guess what... I do not have to to be able to form an outside opinion. I hope for her sake Yvette, NEVER see's this blog, or your So Called BFF may not ever speak to you again.... What is BFF anyways, friends until you do not approve of her.. Good thing you are perfect!
Okay, seriously, what is with all these ppl defending Yvette? I'M NOT THE FAT ONE HERE YOU GUYS!

TAMN, you seriously don't have to listen to these Joannie-come-latelys. If they were your true BFFs like the rest of us, they would have been reading your most inner, pure thoughts for almost 16 months now. They obviously are not kindred spirits.

JenB said...

Sereouslee, I am crying for you. Do these people even KNOW that it is your birthday month? Why are they so mean? Don't they know you are just trying to help? My suggestion, put on your sparkliest tiara, make a big ol cup of non fat hot chocolate, order some Rio, and listen to Mo Tab. You will fill much better, and just give me there emell addresses. I'll take care of em!

Sarah said...

OH. MY. HECK.

sorry for the potty talk.

but SERIOUSLY?? WHO ARE THESE HATERS??? dont worry tamners, i lurve you and you are super skinny and nice and the best mommers around!

Heather said...

OMG! She must not know how tinsey and perfect you are. Sounds to me like someone is JEALOUS. Hope she puts these bad feelings to rest before she goes in for her temple recommend:( Wouldn't want to lie and pretend to be worthy...

Kathy said...

Wow, they just don't get how hard it is to be you and deal with spinsys. unfortunately I still am one so if you wanna do the mo-machelorette I'm your gal.....you really should cause my roomie of 6 years is getting married tomorrow and i'm feeling very spinsy...

sarahgurl said...

Tamn you should have known this would happen. You can only slide under the radar with your perfectness for so long. Jealousy makes people say stupid things. Luckily for you, you have real friends that know how sincere you are. Treat yourself to some fro-yo, paint Aliviah's nails, give Tridger a faux-hawk, and bask in your originality!!

Laura said...

TAMN, this girls are probably fatter and uglier than Yvette. And they probably like...play sports like "women's rugby" *shudder*. Maybe you should extend one of you're perfectly manicured helping hands and get these girls a make-over, or even help get them on EXTREME Make-Over! The final scene where they hug you and thank you for making them beautiful (but not as beautiful as you) will leave nary a dry eye across Merica.

Sarah said...

AAAAAAAAAAHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!!!!!!

It makes my heart hurt when people have no sense of humor.

Sunny said...

That last line should be immediately immortalized (or immoralized) on a t-shirt and cutesy little vintage cards. My day is complete having read that. Thank you.

Allison and Tyler said...

Frownsmile. At both those ppl. Kudos to you for being so charitable.

Sarah said...

Some one out there needs to grow a sense of humor!

Frau said...

How seriously mean!

I don't think ugly people really get how much christ-like love and devotion the gorgeous ones need to interact with them. You'd think they would get it because they don't like talking to each other either. You don't see ugly people groups. Nope! They're all trying to be friends with the cuties.

If you're the kind of person who is never happy until everyone else is exactly like you, it proves you aren't selfish. After all, it's impossible to be self-absorbed when you're butting in to other people's lives.

Dave said...

So awesome on so many levels.

And, yes TAMN, I want you to be happy. And as you know the best way to be happy is to serve others - even if they are homely. Your sacrifices are monumental. Keep up the good work.

ljy said...

Awesome! This post was hilarious!! I am laughing out loud still.

whyimstillsingle said...

Love it! Thanks for sharing!

the Eggett's said...

I can't stop laughing!!!! holy cow I am going to pee my pants! Honestly TAMN, do emails like this make you blog even more righteously, or do they make you a little frowny inside?

Mishqueen said...

It never ceases to amaze me how many people think this blog is serious.

Satire, people! Satire! And brilliant satire, if I do say so mi'self!

Miss Frazzled said...

Mama Bear... LOL

Sariah said...

Wow. People who don't understand TAMN make me sad. Love you, TAMNers!!!!

Brookie said...

giggle!

Some ppl have nothing better to do than ruin others fun! 2 bad!

Kris said...

Wow - I must be missing something here. Thank goodness. Keep it up, TAMN. You make my day.

The Boob Nazi said...

Oh my gosh. TAMN. These are my favorite blogs of yours.
But seriously, who are these people???? You rock. Don't listen to the haters.

Lizzen said...

OMG, "evil"? "Jack Mormon"? Don't worry TAMN, there's a special place in heck for haters like that. Srsly, save your preaching for the pulpit, peeps.

Since it's still your birthday week you can totally go back to anthro and buy whatever else you didn't to soothe these aching feelings.

chris w said...

Seriously TAMN, sometimes the people in the grate and spashus building go so far as to leave comments on your blog! Ew. They don't even realize how you are taking time out of your birthday week to help someone less adorable. Sigh...the trials.

Maren said...

"I'm not the fat one here you guys!" Ahahahahahahahahahahaha...(will continue to laugh about this one for a while).
Seriously so sad. smile/frown

Sarra said...

to all those meanies:

i once heard that people who call others out for certain things often have those same problems manifested in themselves.
i'd be careful calling someone out for self-righteousness and other garbage because it sounds an awful lot like you've got the SAME PROBLEM!!!

love you, TAMN, and your blog! it makes me laugh all the time. :)

JenniferKaryn said...

hahahah some people. first of all they are creepers for Blog- stalking you. especially since they think this is real. haha. Good laughs.

Celeste Louise said...

"...text even the homely MiaMaids, and also I craft." OMGosh I think I just peed.

Rick said...

All these guys are missing is the phrase, "Now, I have a GREAT sense of humor."

Translated: "I have no sense of humor."

Rendy Tucker said...

Makes my day.

Makes. My. Day.

MamaBear said...

i never seize to be amaze how stewpid some pepole can B! U R NOT THE FAT 1! dont lissen to them, TAMN, u no we luv u.

Kari said...

Tamn, Don't listen too these mean girlz. YOu no there just jealous of you! I bet they are spinsty as well.

Jordan said...

Those people are just mean. You were only trying to save Yvette! I totally blame my mission for ending up with a righteous husband and a PT Cruiser (no station wagons at the dealer).

I did have to laugh that the second one didn't figure it out after three tries.

The Knickerbockers said...

Bwahahaha.... They read this three times and still thought it was real?

Jenny said...

You keep going momma bear. Don't even listen to these people. They obviously don't get it. You are totally rightous and they are totally clueless. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that they are a bit spinsty themselves.

KT said...

Don't worry about those two other people. They just don't understand how fabulous you really are. It's like, if we were all a little more like TAMN we'd all be much happier.

Plus, I've never like Yvette anyway. She's got this smell about her...

The G Fam said...

Oh my heck Tamn. No offense, but do people not read the sides and read about Tamners in the news? I think they would THAN get the picture that this is ALL about mocking the Mormon self-righteous Mommy blogs that DO make you throw up a bit in your mouth. It kind of makes me laugh how seriously everyone takes this blog. It is here for a laugh!!!!
P.S. I know the REAL Tamn, and you rock!

Talina said...

Wow, I'm kind of surprised that people call you out this way. I mean, OBVIOUSLY they don't know it's a joke but I've totally come across blogs of girls who could be TAMN's twin but would I ever email them and call them out?
Of course not.
I would continue to read their blog and secretly judge them from the comfort of my own home. . . and possibly forward on the blog address to a few of my closest friends. :)

Geoff said...

Priceless.

The only thing better than the satire of this blog is when people don't realize that it is satire.

It's like a snail shell spiraling into itself.

And the last line in this entry made me spit out my Dr. Pepper...

Alaska Coupon Diva said...

LOL. Sorry, but if you haven't figured out this is a joke yet you really need help.

Amanda said...

I'm sorry...but these made me laugh. Apparently satire is lost on some people.

kyns said...

i get like way fired up when ppl are saying mean things about you. like way more fired up than i get when that meanie kanye stole the microphone from taylor. [jerk!!]
it's like totally rude. ugly people get so jealous sometimes. i love you tamn.

Beckie said...

People just don't get it :)

angela said...

I love you. I love your blog. I was laughing OUT LOUD at this post. You have outdone yourself, yet again. Please don't ever change, no matter what these haters say. No, you AREN'T the fat one. When it all comes down to it, that is the only thing that matters.
The.
Only.
Thing.

JM said...

lol. I was dying. Especially at the "I had to read your entry 3 times to be sure it was not a joke," part. You made my whole day. :D

Our Dowland Journal said...

You are freaking hilarious. You have such a sweet spirit, it's too bad that some people can't see your full potential.
And never apologize for NOT being the FAT one!!!

Jennie said...

I'd say you should have a big blinkie on your blog stating that this is a "seriously NOT serious blog" but then it would eliminate comments like the ones we got to read in this post. Half the fun of this blog is reading comments of people who still think you are real. What is so funny is that I saw the Deseret News interview with you way back when and you are actually an RM yourself! Jokes on them!

Lindsay said...

Poor TAMN! You just know these girls are spinstys, prolly RMs, and have never owned a modest bikini in their whole life.

At least they've got good grammer and writeing skills--just not as good as yours.

DanyaLynd said...

Ugh srsly, TAMNers! They just don't get YOU! So sad for THEM that they're missing out on how sweet/cute/fun/hottie/charitable you are!

clan of the cave hair said...

sheeeesh! So much judgmentalism! I totally thought the term "Jack Mormon" was for people who were born in Utah but drink beer and wear immodest bikinis. I had no idea people thought that Mormon's aren't supposed to tell the truth about fat friends.

Brytni said...

People are going to feel pritty dumb when they realize what they wrote doesn't make a dent in your helpfullness keep up the good works TAMN some day Yvette will thank you she just has to get skinny first

Robin said...

Lame post

Sasha said...

How dare people judge you on your private life that you just happen to share with everyone? Of course you are a great friend. I mean like how many friends do you have on facebook? TONS!!

kristib said...

Did you ever poke a stick in a hornets' nest when you were young? 'Cuz, dang girl, you are sooo good at stirring things up!

Steph said...

Classic!!!

Bekah said...

I love people who don't get a joke!

You're doing the right thing... she will NEVER get married if she doesn't stop being fat

George and Rebecca Hunt said...

You know this is sad. Cause all of us who have read this blog from the start, know it's all a joke. I still read this.. not really sure why anymore. From the start, you were humorous and witty. Now, I think all the attention has gone to your head. It's not funny mormon sattire anymore. It's just the annoying, self-centered life of the self-righteous TAMN. Sometimes you still post totally awesome and funny things, but I miss the old TAMN, from the begining. That's all :)

kris and judd said...

*gasp* I can't believe such SPINSTIES read your blog!!!! I thought only darling and trying-to-be-darling people read it. My heart is so sad for these people who clearly don't smile enough. I'm so sorry you had to deal with this during your BIRTHDAY WEEK!

Ian said...

So, is that a "protect-my-offspring" mama bear or a "don't-want-to-let-my-figure-go-and-turn-into-Yvette" mama bear?

Just wondering.

Anne said...

Wow, just...wow.

Jenilyn said...

WHOA....TAMN...That last line was a little harsh don't you think? Big girls need love too. :) bahahahaha....but for real...let the haters hate...just do your thang...

Brandon said...

People who don't get it are awsum.

Jen said...

Y'all need to laugh more! This is a big, fat, fun joke! Makes me smile every post if not snort my Diet Coke.

Audrey {+} John said...

HAHAHA.....I think you're hilarious.

Jake, Megan, Ryder and Emma said...

all i can say is LIGHTEN UP, PEOPLE!! don't be hatin' cuz your not as cute as me (i mean YOU TAMN!) puh-lease....grow up you mean e-mailers!

Sara and Dustin said...

"I'm not the fat one here" hahaha!! Too funny!

kris... said...

People are so gullible. How rude. I wanna see you go all mama bear.

Mer said...

Wow. Just... wow.

SATIRE, people. SATIRE.

Molly Doe said...

love it.
and really? Evil?

James and Tricia Thomas said...

TAMN people like that are just unhappy and you know misery loves company! Your love for Yvette inspires me!

Staci said...

I cannot believe those emailers actually think this blog is serious. How can they not see that the writer is representing the very worst and most shameful parts of LDS Utah culture through the brilliantly hiddeous ramblings of the one and only TAMN??? Gimme a break people. It is satire. Look it up. Jack Mormon. Hilarious.

strongmom said...

What about "Thou shalt not judge"? Obviously THEY don't even know the commandments. And as far as Yvette being your BFF, she gets you or she wouldn't be your BFF. Ignore them. (oh, and its ok to rightously judge others) One day they will learn to be happy and loving just like you. Have you checked their past entries into your gazillion giveaways? Maybe they are just cranky losers.

Heather said...

WOW

Chi-townRawlins said...

Part of me hopes those are real...part of me hopes those are fake. Because, seriously...I don't even know. Elipses are the only way to express how I feel about those.

Ashley said...

omgoodness! WHAT? How can "THEY" think you are SeLfIsH? Seriously! You are being so thoughtful towards Yvette. I wish there were MORE people as considerate as you are!

Ashley said...

OmGOODNESS! Oh boy...Why the heck are people SoOoOoOo Mean to you? You are just looking out for Yvette being a GOOD Friend I dont know who "THEY" think they are but you are the best person in the world. There should be more people like you.

The Playin' Lakins said...

Oh wow . . . she had to read it 3 times to be sure it wasn't a joke? Doesn't she know how so *SERIOUS*ly blessed we are?

Adrianne Miller said...

They are totally jealous. You should seriously consider going private.

Jensen said...

After all that bitterness, you must need a little sugar. Time for a cupcake! And because I still have some ell-bees to lose, I'll have some Yo-Zone sweetness on your behalf.

Ruby said...

"cookie-cutter way you think she should be"....they must really not get it!

Molly in the Jello Belt said...

I {heart} that your hate mail is spelled and punctuated as well as your blog posts!

Kara Miller said...

Bahahaaa! People just don't get good humor. Keep it up TAMNers!

evitafjord said...

I bet if you checked the caller ID on those emails, you'd find that it was LYNZII behind both of them. Jealous much?

Shannon said...

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!

Brooke said...

Talina -- HAHA!! Oh that was spot-on. I really want some of those links!! And I am dying to send you one blog in particular I love to judge befcause it might just push you over the edge into sending indignant e-mails. Seriously. Wouldn't it be great if we could all pool our most TAMN-like blogs for entertainment purposes without hurting feelings or risking ex-communication from the neighborhood Bunco/Pre-preschool/Settlers/Girlslunchout group?

Tiffany said...

My whole day has been made. Thank you.

Mandy said...

For a little while I have been kind-of bored with your cutsy blog, but THIS my dear TAMN was the pick me up that I needed!!

Ben and Emily said...

I just started reading your blog! I love it, it makes me laugh out loud!!! It's always a nice break after a long day of being "mommy". Those are funny emails!! I am an rm and I still love your blog!! Thanks for the comic relief !

Heather said...

So sorry TAMN, some times people can be so ignorant! (by the way, that is pronounced "ignernt" and means "rude").

This might be my favorite post so far. You rock!

Claire Marie said...

I hope Yvette, NEVER see's this blog either!!!!

brookeaprilrain said...

Is it sad that I know exactly how you feel? I hear from people that I'm selfish all of the time, because for a moment I thought of myself. You are not wrong to think of yourself sometimes. Whatever you said about Yvette, it's probably for good reason. Don't get down, keep your chin up and just know that you have a sister from another Motha' who supports you because of what you are not for you have or have not accomplished. Keep being yourself and stay true.

Chelsea said...

It's the most hilarious thing ever when people don't recognize satire. Public schools have failed us all.

Heather said...

Don't let them get you down. They are just so jellus of your purrfect life, I know I am! :)

Anna said...

omg tamn u are soo--o grate and dont let anyone tell you otherwise.

Shelley said...

Please, don't ever explane yourself TAMNers. If you have to explane it, its not funny. Its too bad that people just don't get how perfect and self sacrifising you are. Haters make me so sad, because they are totaly jealous and prolly don't even have any Etsy stuff. {frownsmile}

Andrea said...

I can't believe there are still people out there that think this is real!

: ) Paula said...

So do you have a form letter reply you send to the haters? Cuz I like to picture them reading your reply. I can see them discovering that this blog isn't what they thought it was, and then basking in the embarassment they feel for having so vigorously scolded an imaginary person.

And chris w's comment calling it the "grate and spashus building" is absolutely classic. Thanks for making me smile. (It's why I never read your blog in my google reader, the comments you get are golden!)

Science Teacher Mommy said...

"To be sure it was not a joke."

Um . . . . maybe your homegirl should have read four times?

Grammar G of "Big Beat Battalion" said...

I have KNOW DOUBT that these jealous LDS girls are just a little wee bit chunky and there babies are probably not even well behaved at church. And they probably eat cheerios and get em smooshed in the nice church carpet. so don't worries! luvs you, in a totally harmless home teacher way! ;)

Megz said...

My tender heart want to say, 'I'm so proud of you emailers for standing up for good princples!' because I don't like it when I'm not in on the joke and that's kindof where they are isn't it? Hopefully they get it now and will save their chastisement for the bigger issues out there. Like Bobama taking away our quilted toilet paper!

Matt and Jennae Porter said...

No. Those seriously cannot be real. There cannot be people in this world (and that are LDS) that are that mean to complete strangers. Seriously makes me sad! C'mon people, think back to primary, love one another!! That's all TAMN is doing!

Melinda said...

I NEVER write on blogs that I read BUT....couldn't pass this one up. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blog. I think it is great. I smile everytime I read an entry. I think it is great that you are willing to write/joke about things that ALL of us have thought at one time or another. I think it is great and you should NOT listen to to people like that. I am sure you are a wonderful wife, mother, friend and a WONDERFUL member of the LDS church. WOW these people are just sad.
KEEP BLOGGING. I think the "likes" win over these two comments.

A Toast to Kos said...

Kill me now. That just made my weekend! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Melinda said...

I never post on blogs but...I couldn't pass this up. I think that your blog is GREAT. I read your blog whenever I log on and smile when ever I read YOUR blog. From what I have read I think you are a great mother, wife, friend and member of the LDS church. I think you are a talented writer/joker.
I LOVE this blog. Keep Blogging. Those ladies are just having a bad day....(let's hope)

Melinda said...

oh no I am so new to all of this.....I posted again because I didn't see my first post and I said different stuff because I totally couldn't remember what I wrote the first time. UG
Please delete my second post and now this post too... Oh my I must look like an idiot. Not as big of an idiot as those two ladies though. Can I say idiot on your blog? Oops!
Thanks a ton!

Sarah & Layne said...

Wow, this reminds me of the time I got hate mail on Facebook from upstanding members of the church and a former EQ counselor that I didn't EVEN KNOW for a status update. And it kept coming. And it was all about NOT JUDGING. I was ticked for a while but now looking back it's pretty HILARIOUS.

Take a look in the mirror folks.
And ask Santa for some humor and humility too.

Sheesh!

jamie said...

OMGosh. This is the best. Seriously though.....how do people not get it by now? REALLY peeps...what are you, over 20?!

Sarah F said...

"I had to read your entry 3 times to be sure it was not a joke.." hmmm.. maybe they should have read it a few more times to be sure.

Lesa said...

Freaking hilarious. I <3 this post.

AzĂșcar said...

Wow.

I hope it's because they went off Diet Coke.

my4blessings said...

love your blog- the way you write seriously cracks me up and brings a smile to me each time I read it! It is so funny that someone would take this seriously and not see the humor in it. Did I say I totally Love your blog! TOTALLY!

my4blessings said...

love your blog- you totally make me laugh each time I read it...too bad stuffy people can't see the humor in it all

Jesse_Jay87 said...

wow yeah this blog is pure bogus.

MarcyG. said...

Yet another post that has given me a laugh. You are awesome!

Jessica said...

Those emails really made me really mad. Those people are judging you right back. Not to mention incredibly daft if they don't realize what's going on here....
So my little heart was filled with anger towards them until I read your last line. "I'M NOT THE FAT ONE HERE YOU GUYS."
TAMN....I laughed so hard I snorted. How can anyone possibly call you mean and selfish when you so obviously spread laughter and sunshine across the web! It's unbelievable!
I heart you TAMN!
Those girls were probably fat and ugly too. (or maybe even Lynzi)

ilovelucy said...

I have to laugh at people's comments. Whether I think they (or you) are right or wrong its your blog and you can write what you want. At least you were truthful to what you felt. I know lots of people who have blog sites who fabricate stories to entice readers because they want followers and people actually believe them! You do what makes you feel right. If people don't like it they don't have to read!

Melinda said...

How sad that some ppl don't know how giving you REALLY are. Kisses!

Teri's Blog said...

Please, some people are WAY too serious! It's called a laugh!

Kyle and Alli said...

Someone read the entry THREE times and STILL does not get it??!! Wow. They must be a student at the U or something... clearly not in tune enough to know the 'real' you!

Thanks for sharing...always a great laugh!

Mike and Hallie said...

Wait... this is satire?

Amalie said...

let me get this straight. someone read one entry three times and could not figure out if this blog was a joke? You should pray for them. really.

it's me, andrea. said...

"I had to read your entry 3 times to make sure it was not a joke." That was my favorite part from *dumb ass number 2. *I can say dumb ass because I'm not a part of the plan.
They should have read it a 4th time if that was the case. I love your blog you little cookie cutter Mormon. Go put more glitter on your 'Simplify' sign and you'll feel tonz better.

Jeannie said...

Is it naughty that I DO want to see you turn into Mama Bear?

Lacie said...

I heart your blog! I think you're a Riot! What's with the haggy lady calling you self-righteous? How does she think SHE sounds???

em said...

BAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!! tamn, they are so just jealous b/c you have like over 1000 followers and they are having to buy shasta b/c their 3 followers are their mom and two sisters. so sad.

Misty said...

laughing, laughing, laughing, and still laughing. had to read it to my hubby. obiously neither of these individuals are investigative reporters. Did you just forward them the link to when you were in the news?

I think this is funny, but seriously, how do you put up with the e-mails? Don't you get slightly irritated when you get these? I think it would make my blood boil to have such clueless people e-mail me stuff like that. Do you get a lot of these? I think it is wild that people don't get it.

Heart Mommy said...

OM-Gooshie

I think that both of those are emails where from Lynzii..

She must have found your blog...

Crud-

Don't feel bad -K-

Whitney Teigan Lyman said...

Wow, I just LOL'd out loud! I read those emails 3 or 4 times, and they were just as funny as the first time... Some people!!!!!

http://www.whitlyman.blogspot.com

keighty said...

Funny because
1. They don't know it's a joke and
2. Is it really that much more Christlike to call someone "evil" and "Jack Mormon" and say the things they said?

Seriously? Seriously??

SAHM: Surviving Assorted Home Mayhem said...

Well, when you're not laughing
(or even "getting" it) then it's probably about you.

Dave & Chels said...

Wow. This blog keeps getting better and better. You are amazing, by the way, if people have no idea that you are NOT being serious. Kuddos. You are genius!

myimaginaryblog said...

My 9yo daughter's trying to memorize a song from a musical, so she asked to play it on YouTube while I was reading this post and the comments. Suddenly I realized the song she was listening to was "Popular" from "Wicked," and my brain started whirling from perfect symbiosis. Since there are no coincidences, either she was inspired to listen to that song, or I was inspired to read your blog, or YOU were inspired to WRITE your blog!!

DON'T LET THE HATERS GET YOU DOWN!!!

blair said...

they are juzt jealuiz cause day are just "sweet zpirits"

Suzy said...

lol! pleeze post more of these!!

Ty & Nancy Mackey said...

there just jealous, kudos to you for dealing with this trial, and during your birthday month too! It's not your fault that you were blessed with the talent of being, well, perfect!

Skipper said...

MORE. MORE. MORE!!!!

Victoria Elder said...

Eeew these women writing you these e-mails sound like they are old... like they are probably 25 gross

Reggs said...

LOLOL!!!! OH I'm so glad you posted these emails/comments because these two people are total morons and need to look up the word "satire".
By the way, Dove promises ARE like scritures and take me 1/2 hour to read anyway. *HUGZ*

Brittany said...

Hahaha oh dear. I love these posts! Seriously you need to keep posting ridiculous emails like these!! I'm curious as to what you say back! haha. Silly silly girls....

M & M said...

OMG! OMG! OMG! (The LDS version of course). No way did they say that! I am laughing out loud right now!

WanderingJennie said...

A bad Mormon?! I'm taking the discussions because of you!!!!!! It's like the forces of evil are being rallied against you! I'll pray.

20 Something said...

My favorite part: "I guess may I do not get the whole situation, but guess what... I do not have to to be able to form an outside opinion." Yikes...

You must be laughing ALL the way to the bank with your ads! These people that make these comments are morons! Your blog rocks! I would not go private - these idiots just make you more popular and richer! You're smart to remain anonymous!

Courtney said...

Satire? I totally missed that. Apparently I will need to make an appointment to have my funny bone checked.

andrea said...

I haven't once seen you writing anything mean on here. This is for fun and I don't see anything wrong here. Keep entertaining people that need a good laugh!

Gustogirl said...

People who don't get it, make me teary!

Okay...so I also accidentally stumbled upon your blog and have to say that there are for SURE some awful pre-conceived notions about return sister missionaries. I have to say that I had a great dating life but decided to go knowing that NO ONE has ever told girls that they shouldn't go. On the contrary President Hinckley said that the Lord will soon send down his priesthood army and needs women who know the gospel well so those cute little smooshy boys can go to them. I had the BEST time on my mission. I LOST WEIGHT LIKE IT WAS GOING OUT OF STYLE!!!!! We as sister would all laugh, shop, joke and kindly breathe on each other when we had the flu so that we could lose even more weight!!!! =) In that I hope you see hope for your darling friend. Russia was the best experience of my life and I KNEW that it would be the day my mission president's wife called and told me to bring all of my fashionable clothes. NOTHING DRAB!!!!! I was well stocked with Ann Taylor, White House Black Market and the occasional Forever 21. Being a freelance makeup artist I felt it was not only my duty to preach the amazing gospel but to also beautify as I went along my happy way. Got home was married within a year in a GORGE spanish lace dress, built a home furnished with the best Old World style you can find and have the cutest little smooshy boys....am I bragging???? YES!!!!! And for good reason. NONE of this would have happened the way it did had I not gone!!!!! I am not a spinster....REPEAT.....NOT A SPINSTER!!!!! I like to think that I am more of a (insert commercial voice) classy, sophisticated gal who likes long walks on the beach and....wait, back on subject.....missions are WONDERFUL!!!!! The days of girls going out, wearing combat boots, slicking their hair back in a ponytail and "manning" it up as if trying to attract another woman ARE GOOOOOOOOOONE!!!!! Long live the stylish Audrey Hepburns out there making a difference.....AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH, sorry, just fell off my soap box. I would never tell you that you are an awful person, or selfish and rude....but in this case you might just be plain wrong but with great intentions...I'm just sayin =).

Little Lovables said...

wow, those ladies are so righteous, aren't they!

and to this the last had to read your post 3 TIMES to ensure it's not a joke?!

how could she think you and all the commenters are note joking? I mean,. fur realz?

Laurie said...

That person just became the butt (oops...I mean bum) of many, many jokes.

Booher Blogs said...

Don't they know that you've had trials too? Like when you gained ten pounds during your twin pregnancy. Or when you couldn't eat Cafe Rio for a week. But those letters SERIOUSLY just made my day. So I'm glad they tried to get all up in your biz, but that's just selfish of me.

Kate said...

Hilarious. What idiots.

DeANNA said...

DUDETTE... MAMA BEAR MY ARSE... I WOULD BE SELF PROCLAIMED ASSASIN RIGHT NOW. SO SAD THAT THEY ARE SO OBVIOUSLY JEALOUS OF YOUR WAY AWESOME LIFE AND THEIR HORRID BORING LIVES.

I DON'T THINK THAT THEY SHOULD BE THROWING THE MORMON THING IN THERE BECAUSE IF THEY KNOW ABOUT JACK MORMON THEY MUST BE THAT AND THEY MUST BE LIVING WITH A STICK UP THEIR NOSES. DELETE THEM AND MOVE FORWARD BECAUSE YOUR TWINS NEED YOU TO BE HAPPY AND AFTER ALL, YOU ARE PERFECT!!!

Jewel said...

hee hee hee...I loved Jen's comment about the mission. Jen--you do realize that the person behind this is an RM, too? She's just mocking the stereotype about sister missionaries. Just sayin'.

maybe your next post should be titled:

"the definition of satire:"

Tulsi said...

I am sure that you have realized that some (many) members of the church believe they should be Relief society Presidents and their husbands bishops just because of who they are. I know a family who moved to Arizona because the ward didn't appreciate her and she got her coveted call of RS President. If people thought you were dead serious, I don't think you would have the readers you do. It's nice to be reminded to laugh about your serious neighbor who stormed out in a huff after being asked to be in the Nursery when they were expecting Primary President. As for some comments, a true LDS member would know the ins and outs and be able to make light of them. I'll admit, I came across your blog on occassion and skimmed fast, just because I'm busy with my married daughter, granddaughter, Missionary son who will be leaving for Iraq 3 weeks after coming home from his LDS Mission, and my HS Sophomore who thinks the world is ending often. Then realized that that is why I need to slow down and enjoy it. I'm having serious questions as to why I'm to give my son up for 3 years instead of the two, but he loves America as much as the Gospel. Which is why he is a great soldier and Missionary. I'm still trying to figure how to make light of that. I have to admit I don't care about the dating thing, but I don't have to read them. I can come back another day. I can't believe you have gotten some mean comments.

Tulsi said...

Oh, yeah. My mom says she's a "jack Mormon". I didn't even know the term was used anymore as she is the only one I know who uses it. It's "Inactive" now. She says she is Jack Mormon because she is on the records of the church but has no plans to live it. And she keeps her records in the church so I'll be able to do her work easier. It was kind of funny to read that term and made me wonder how old she was. I'm 43 (No problem with my age - I'd better be somewhere near that to be a granddaughter!!!) and when I've been with her when she has used it people look at her like "am I supposed to know what that means?"

bonbon said...

MARRY ME! This blog is the highlight of my day.

Shari said...

I agree with Bonbon, except I don't want you to marry me. It blows me away that people cannot take this blog for what it is...mindless entertainment. I love it!

Steph said...

Well obviously they didn't do any further 'research' after 'stumbling' onto the blog now... Some people just don't GET satire... (love how one of them said they had to 'read the post several times to make sure it wasn't a joke'... maybe instead of reading the same post over and over, they should have research some info on the blog itself. 20 bucks says, they're not detectives.
Lets have a moment of silence for those who are so quick to talk about what they are misunderstanding and making themselves look like fools.... better yet, forget the silence...laugh it up!

Sarah Martin said...

I don't know what this is all about but I just about peed my pants reading a spit and spat of the drama. I just love it! You go wit yo bad self girl. Bring it!

the Lola Letters said...

I can't believe someone actually read your blog post THREE times and came to the conclusion that you weren't kidding. Very perceptive that one. It took me like, weeks to realize how dead serious you were about everything you posted here. WEEKS I tell ya.

Karilynn said...

I've got to admit... the last sentence made me laugh so hard... I think I peed a little! ;o)

Francis Family said...

ha I love rude responses. It shows other peoples true colors. This blog is awesome, and they are just jealous cuz they probably are trying so hard to be JUST like you. Haters!!
mean people suck!!

Bevan said...

Why do fat people think it is ok to break the Word of Wisdom? I mean, not only are the punished for being fat, but they will have to sit alone in the 2-lustrial Kingdom!

If Heavenly Father is punishing them twice, they must really be bad people!
