Sign Language for Dummies

I wanna write something here. I really, really do. But I can't. I really, really can't. Not until I finish coordinating New Beginnings for my young women, and shopping for prom dresses with my daughter, and fixing dinner for my almost favorite Hawaii people who are in town, and preparing the whole famdamily for an impending trip to Las Vegas so I can prove that what happens in Vegas, doesn't have to stay in Vegas. Especially during soccer tournaments.

Mostly I can't write anything here until I complete this one particular project I'm working on that actually pays $$$. I don't know why my hub thinks that's so much more important than me expressing myself artistically in an off-beat, quirky, nonsensical manner here in my diary, but he does, so that's that.

Instead of saying something funny today, I'm going to show you something funny. Two things funny, actually--both piped to me by some peeps here in my Sponge Bob ward.

This funny was piped to me after I wrote this post about how hard it is to be a gol darn mom. If a picture is worth a thousand words then a YouTube video of The Mom Song, set to the William Tell Overture, is worth 2,000 words.

Trust me, it is:

Don't even get me started!

But now that I've started, one of my cutie patootie Mia Maids sent me a gold mine of signs from the universe this morning. She didn't even know that I speak sign language.

Now that you're laughing out loud, I'll hit you with a deep philosophical question. Probably one of the deepest, most philosophical questions ever pondered by man:

Should I get a dog?


Should I have children?

P.S. If you can't see the signs, then you're a dummy.

hee hee

I didn't mean this to be a dummy test, btw, but apparently the Universe is being finicky today. If you really want the signs, I'll have to email them to you.

You can't read any of these signs from the Universe can you?

Am I the only dummy who speaks, sign language?

Okay, okay, I'll work on it.

Amy said...

the Universe isn't showing me any signs, but I totally love the mom overture. And phew, just reading about all the things you are doing makes me tired.

Blogger doesn't like me as much as it likes my daughter, I don't know why it keeps signing her in, and not letting me sign her out first, guess I'll have to use my laptop from now on.

T said...

no signs for this dummy either :(... but yeah, I think I really need to see them. I actually learned the words to that particular overture just to sing it to my kids last year...

they weren't as impressed as I'd hoped.

wendy said...

No signs....
And I DO know sign language...REALLY. cross my heart.

That mom overture is hilarious.

Get a dog.....

so i turned on your playlist and hooked it up to speakers and then we got to work cleaning our house today.. and then the 3rd song came on (always look on the bright side- monty Python) and then song 3 swore.. really.. and kid 2 caught it. and I kept telling her there was no way there was a swear word in that song and then i bet her that we'd listen to it again and if she was right, Id clean the rest of my house by myself.... and vice versa if i was right... guess what? i cleaned my whole house today while kid 2&1 watched Netflix!

but thats not the funny part... the funny part is that i made a playlist to play at my kids playgroup and ive played it several times and no one has caught it... thank goodness parents dont stay around when im hosting play dates.

So i guess what Im saying is that Im a dummy... and i couldnt read those signs at all! But i did imagine what the difference between a dog and a kid might be and I lol'd!

and Kid 1 & 2 said this is the best spring break ever!

ps.. love the mom overture. and the 7th generation spray.. my sister was on this whole green hype and she bought me a bunch of stuff, including melaleuca and meyers, and one night we brought them all out.. and just laughed and laughed about how bad they all smelled.. we all decided that 7th gen smells like mildew, melaleuca smells like laie sch. cafeteria, and meyers smells like roach poop... so now I mix my own potent version of lavender clorox & water. and then follow it up with Lavender pinesol..

Hee hee about the Monty Python swear word. My kids notice it every time. And I can't believe you haven't. ha ha ha

How funny about the smelly organic cleaners. I had no idea that all of them smelled bad. If you have to mix all the chemicals with them to make them smell good, does that counter act the organicness? Doesn't it kinda taint them?

Okay, I found the most yummy lavender smelling organic cleaner. I'll post it tomorrow.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Oh my goodness! How embarrasing. It's me, Crash! That last comment was from me, but I was signed in as my paying gig. But you can't see it yet, because it's under construction. Shoots!

I think that is the funniest thing I have heard in a long time. I hate it when that happens, when I am so sure that I am right about something and then no I was wrong after all.

DeNae said...

So when does Vegas happen? I won't intrude, unless we can sneak off and do lunch without your family feeling neglected. Let me know it there's a time that works, and if not, I promise not to be too wounded.

(I'm sorry, but I have to tell you that my WV is 'efers,' which just lends itself to way too many naughty interpretations. So I want full points for leaving it alone.)

Martha said...

So who's in town?

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Martha, Lorrie Porter. She and Taylor and Dane came over for dinner. SO fun to see them.

DeNae, ha ha about the efers. I am proud of you. My son said that once to me and I didn't let him attend his basketball banquet.

You are going to be at SITS this weekend so we will have to connect at Storymakers.

The Mom said...

You played my Theme Song! Thanks!
