Love, Paper Style...

Behold...my very first guest Blogger!
Meet Renee from Mommy BlogYay 
Here are some reasons why I am honored to post her words here...
-she is hilare.
-her daughter is named Lennon (after a Beatle)
-is known to express herself via barbie dolls and stick people (don't be scared...or do)
-she makes the title "mommy blogger" way more awesome.
-How totally sick are we all of seeing my nerdy glamour shot when my page loads??
...before all this text scares you off, stop acting like you have better things to do
(as my 3 year old would tell me..."FOCUS")
and meet the awesome Renee....
I'm standing in for Team Boo today while our favorite blogger (I'm talking about Carolyn.  Keep up, people) takes a blogging vacation.  It's possible she thought that there only so many ways to keep readers interested in, "I'm stuck in bed, building a baby."  So, let's all laugh at her, because c'mon now.  There are at least seventeen more ways to say that before you have to resort to asking Renee from MommyBlogYay to creep out from the dark, lonely shadows of the far corners of the internet, and come over and muck up your beautiful blog.  Oh also, Hi, I'm Renee, and I have a blog that I muck up pretty regularly at MommyBlogYay, and you should go there (Shamelessness, ACTIVATE!) because... it's a blog? And you're maybe stuck in bed, building a baby?  I really can't think of any other reason.
Have you guys seen Paper Heart yet?  I should disclose that Team Boo does not necessarily endorse my endorsement, but she might.  And if she doesn't, that makes her really dumb.  (I can say that, because she's not here, right?)  If you've seen it, you know that Charlene Yi does a few "home movies" that tell the stories of how some couples knew they were in love, and I was inspired to make one of my own.  Enjoy:
 Love, Bob Dylan Style from MommyBlogYay on Vimeo.
Yes, that was the best I could do, despite a minor in Media Arts, and yes that story is 100% true and 100% as nerdy and awkward as it sounds.  All That You Thought You Knew about me (which probably wasn't much, was it?) has been shattered, hasn't it? Broken into a million pieces and then trampled by a giant buffalo (whose presence, I have to say, HAUNTS me... what does that even MEAN, Carolyn?)
 
It's videos like this that explain why Carolyn gets nominated for blogging awards, and why I am going to slink back to MommyBlogYay and subject my readers to the outtakes.  Amor Fatis, said Nietzche.  
(Also, if you have not yet made paper dolls of you and your significant other, I suggest you get right on that.  Like yesterday.)
Thanks Renee!
{FYI: you killed that Charlene Yi impression}

Is this truly how the first kiss happened? What's the deal with the sandwich? Knowing you and Mr. Renee, this makes total sense.

Any guy would buy you a sandwich on your birthday. Talk about cliche. Only a special, one in a million guy would let you buy your own sandwich on your birthday.

diane said...

I didn't know that either. And all this time I thought he was an "I'm gonna buy my girl all the sandwiches she wants everyday" kind of guy. I was so wrong.
It's a good thing he has a band. And likes the Beatles.

Ditto what Katy said.

Oh man, that is totally straight from Home Videos. You all watched that cartoon, right?

BTW, I don't know who this Renee person is but she is absolutely friggin' hilarious!!! I am so on board with her! My life is so much richer because you let her be a guest on your site!
