But Wait! There's More...

The Baroness promises that if you bear with me just a little at the beginning of this post, I will reward you with the written equivalent of a lovely set of Ginzu knives.

All for the low, low price of $19.99!

(fyi , it's always $19.99)

I am truly honored to have been tagged for a meme by the lovely Blog Antagonist over at Blogs Are Stupid. She is a real wordsmith, that one, and I love, love LOVE her writing.

How could I refuse? It's like turning down a cigar from Don Corleone - just ain't done. Unless, of course, you have some dead-animal-head-fetish. And, well really. At that point, it's between you and YouTube. I wash my hands of the whole sordid affair. Go ahead, ruin your life. See if I care.

The On-Going Tag Game, a/k/a 6 Unimportant Things About Me*
* (not to be confused with all the astounding, deep things you just learned)
1. My perfect food: Turkey
2. Favorite colors: yellow, robin's egg blue
3. Hair: Curly
4. DVD I recently saw: Into the Wild
5. Guilty TV pleasure: America's Next Top Model
6. If I were a tree, I would be a(n): Oak

There we go. Now comes the fun and important part - my 6 tag-ees. I tag:
Sandi at A Widow For One Year
Countess Babs at Barbra Peapod Disco Bubbles
Countess NATUI at Not Afraid to Use It
Step Right Up at Warped Viewings of My Mind
Asthma Girl at Is My Cape Fluttering?
Countess Macaroni at macaronimaniac

Spill it, you - six unimportant facts. Then tag 6 more. Why? Because it's fun, dammit.

OK, on to the promised Ginzu knives. Were you aware that the Baroness adores children's books? I actually enjoyed reading them a smidge more than my kids when they were little, and thus began the shift where I decreased in mental age, and they became the parents.

Here though, are some titles I missed, but have been brought to my attention:

"The Boy Who Died From Eating All His Vegetables"
"Dad's New Wife Robert"
"Fun Four-Letter Words to Know and Share"
"Curious George and the High-Voltage Fence"
"All Cats Go To Hell"
"The Little Sissy Who Snitched"
"That's It, I'm Putting You Up for Adoption"
"The Magic World Inside the Abandoned Refrigerator"
"The Pop-Up Book of Human Anatomy"
"Pop! Goes the Hamster...And Other Great Microwave Games"
"Daddy Drinks Because You Cry"
"Some Kittens Can Fly!"
"Mr. Fork and Ms. Electrical Outlet are Friends?"
"Start a Real-Estate Empire With the Change From Your Mom's Purse"
"How to Become the Dominant Military Power in Your Elementary School"

and the Baroness' favorite, for personal reasons:
"Eggs, Toilet Paper, and Your School"

All of those titles are hilarious, 'cept the hamster, which apparently happened recently.

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Sad....but delicious.

Mental P Mama said...

You are absolutely hilarious. Those are the best titles ever.

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess MPM: Welcome!
I wish I could take credit for the titles...

I wish I knew where these came from originally...

I wish I could buy this person a cup of coffee. Although I'm thinking that caffeine might be the last think they need.

My goodness! I'm just getting caught up on my blog reading and noticed I've been tagged. I'm actually grateful since it's been nearly a week since I've posted, yet I've got nothing to write about.

Gracias dahling! ... Barbra Peapod

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess Babs - My pleasure. Or were you being sarcastic? Because that's ok, too.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with. The Great Carnac says:
Liver, Neon Green, Blonde, Baywatch Box Set, The Shopping Network and Fig.

Let's see how close I get...

Flea said...

Somehow I've missed those titles, even though children's books are my absolute favorite genre. I'll have to visit Amazon to find them all, eh?

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess Flea: Welcome!

As for the retailers of these fine literary treasures, I think they are actually sold out of the trunk of a car behind the liquor store.

Tell them the Baroness sent you for an extra 10%. Added.

Lisa said...

True to fashion, I had a hard time folllowing the rules. However, you were close on a few things. Liver - blech! Neon green - check. Blonde - check, sometimes. Baywatch Box Set - Believe it or not, I found something worse. Shopping Network - nah. Fig? You stumped me -- what is it? As in newton?-count me in!

Barbra Peapod

(BTW, I wasn't being sarcastic. For a change.)

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

That's it.

I'm cancelling my psychic hotline.

Asthmagirl said...

I wondered who that was behind the liquor store! I thought they were selling essential oils and zen gardens... silly me! It was literature!
