Lord forgive us when we get consumed by the things of this world
that fight for our love and our passion. As our eyes are open wide and on You, grant us the privilege of your world-view...and may Your kingdom be what wakes us up, and lays us down.
I know, I almost NEVER participate in the Twitter Ho Down. Here's why: I'm too lazy to go back and copy and paste my tweets into my blog. But sometimes, I'm just so darn clever, so I stop being lazy and do it. This is one of those times. Enjoy ;-)
Olympic Opening Ceremony--this would not have been near the fun were it not for NtG:
@sarahmsalter right now feeling kinda geographically dumb ;-) watching Olympic opening ceremony and going "where is THAT country"?
RT @Nick_theGeek: What?!?! The Jamaican bobsled team didn't qualify???? John Candy will roll over in his grave.//bummed me out too :(
And I love you America, but yes, those pants make your butt look big. #whitepantsfail
Who is the chick (with cankles) singing with Bryan Adams and what made her pick that outfit?? #fashionfail
Nevermind. Nelly Furtado. I always thought her name sounded like a side dish at Taco Bell.
@Nick_theGeek bad footwear makes me snippy. What of it!?
Okay, the whales are amazing!
I really like Sarah's voice but this goofy dancing thing is like a bad Academy Awards performance.
RT @CandySteele: @marni71 oh snap! I thought this was the dance competition. We haven't started YET??//sigh. Apparently not.
Horns and a fiddle #devilwentdowntogeorgia
Oh, the Irish are laughing at this mess.
Nick_theGeek RT @Nick_theGeek: @marni71 batman was in the sky canoe // I would like 2 say that is a phrase I never though I would ever say ... EVER
Nick_theGeek @marni71 yep just when u think, "It can't get any stranger" they up the ante ... I'm gonna have weird dreams 2 night #thatssayinsomthing
RT @Nick_theGeek: Of course Donald Southerland has never narrated one of my dreams.//what a shame.
RT @Nick_theGeek: head banging tap dance??? I think I've seen everything// this just in! Fire in the shoes. NOW u've seen it all :-)
Nick_theGeek RT @marni71: Skiers on fake mountains has redeemed the punk fiddler river dancers // but what bout the weird Peter Pan knock off?
@Nick_theGeek NOTHING is going to redeem peter pan ;p
I wish they'd just light the friggin torch so I can go to bed.
Opera. How am I supposed to stay awake now?
Three minutes. I can do this. The torch bearer better be worth the last half hour.
Mechanical failure eh Canda?
@Nick_theGeek nice jinx there Nick ;-)
Nick_theGeek @marni71 don't ever doubt the power of my mind again. u got snow I didn't and I broke the opening ceremony
Anti climatic. I'm going to bed.
@CandySteele I wish. I've been up for two hours now. This mother thing isn't at all what the brochure said it would be ;-)
@CandySteele God. There is no explanation for my kids still being alive. It's God... ;-)
@buzzbyannies Well...the highlight of the week? $13,000 water damage claim on my kitchen.
@buzzbyannies Yes. But I'm actually okay with this. New cabinets and countertops! Woo hoo. But the mess that will make? AGGGGGHHHHH!
@katdish that's how I feel about Degrassi commercials in general. I hate that show.
katdish @marni71 ugh! My son was watching that show, I started watching it & told him "Oh, hell no!"
@katdish Back in the day, my 15 year old campaigned hard to get to watch it. I shut that bidness down after watching 10 mins of it.
@katdish And I hate the commercials. They air on Nick during iCarly. Gaaa!
@billycoffey How do you live with this junk all winter? Seriously. It's made me pray for you, @makeadiff21 and @nick_thegeek.
redclaydiaries @marni71 You got THIRTEEN inches?! I thought our 7 inches was a lot. Ours is already gone now tho (editors note: I'm posthumously declaring this a TWSS!)
@redclaydiaries Insane, I know. But 7 inches for the ATL area?
RT @stretchmarkmama: Gonna eradicate the backtalk in my house today. And perhaps walk on some water when I'm done.
Watching my life tick away in the Geek Squad line at Best Buy #lunchhourfail
Dear Best Buy in Fort Worth. You suck. Sincerely, former customer, Marni.
@prodigaljohn We need a Wii Ski marriage counselor. The smack talk, the sabotage, the searching Google for cheat codes. Sigh.
At Subway. Listening to 2 young girls complain about not getting enough gov't money because they "only have one kid" each. Sigh. And GAAAAA!
sarahmsalter @marni71 That's what @billycoffey would call "blog fodder."
RT @Nick_theGeek: RT @katdish: I am at the movies. My feet are stuck to the floor. Gross. // ur gonna ave 2 treat it like a jelly fish sting //SNORT!
RT @buzzbyannies: @sarahmsalter asked "what is wrong with Walmart?" I can't give you an answer in 140 characters or less.// yeah, me either
RT @muchl8r: Almost wrecked my car as a giant flew out the truck in front of me. it's not my time ppl, stop trying 2 kill me!/like Goliath?
@katdish you saw (read: suffered through) Tooth Fairy? My condolences.
@jewda4 Yay. Now we're being followed by a Communist Bot.
jewda4 @marni71 I feel pretty special that a communist detecting twitterbot finds me so follow-worthy
Half-price Valentines chocolate FTW!!
Nick_theGeek @marni71 wow, u r they discounting the chocolate already? plenty of shopping days left .... right? ... right??
@Nick_theGeek for low maintenance wives like me, yes. We'll gladly take day-after chocolate ;-)
Olympic Skating Costumes:
Amendment: I wish I had a Zamboni and a purple, sparkly skating costume.
redclaydiaries @marni71 I wish I had a Zamboni, a purple, sparkly skating costume, AND glasses I could see thru.
@redclaydiaries atta girl, dream big! My big dream is for my upper arms to stop moving the same time my lower arms do.
redclaydiaries @marni71 Sunday in our church's stadium seating was interesting. I had to walk down 40 steep stairs. Walked by feel
Is it spelled sow cow because that makes me happy for some reason.
RT @redclaydiaries: @marni71 salchow. I don't know why I know that.//she's more than just a pretty face folks.
A little piece of me dies when the skaters wipe out instead of making their landings. And the sparkly sequins distract me from...ooh shiny.
redclaydiaries @marni71 How'd u like the Chinese guy's sheer shirt?
@redclaydiaries I ordered Dane the sheer shirt off of Amazon just now. The men's Bible study group will be seething with jealousy.
@buzzbyannies @redclaydiaries What is the real #wardrobefail each year are the Russians. Bless their hearts.
buzzbyannies @Marni71 I'm always distracted by why the heck a guy would want to dress like that
CandySteele @marni71 @Helenatrandom @redclaydiaries Hey yall, you just keep doing olympic play by play & I won't even have to watch.
@CandySteele @Helenatrandom @redclaydiaries That's why we're here Candy. U don't need no stinkin' NBC.
CandySteele @marni71 I wonder if Bob Costas uses mayo in his hair? It's sure different this year....
@CandySteele with that shine and volume, I vote yes. #Hellmans:it'snotjustforpotatosalad
Sangria? Why yes, thank you, I believe I will.
@sarahmsalter But of course! When can u be here? Also, having a glass makes these men's skating costumes seem less fugly ;-)
redclaydiaries @marni71 DID YOU SEE THE COSTUME WITH THE CORSET?
@redclaydiaries PINK CORSET?! How did I miss that? Was he Russian? They are accomplished skaters in Goodwill fodder, God bless em.
redclaydiaries @marni71 Sorry. But it was a CORSET. With PINK TIES.
@redclaydiaries black satin corset with pink bows...is he on his honeymoon?
marni71 RT @redclaydiaries: @marni71 I don't think he's skated yet. He's in the last group: black satin w hot pink corset straps.//setting DVR ;-)
redclaydiaries @marni71 OMG. It's Jonny Weir. Apparently attempting to top his costumes from 2006
@redclaydiaries NO WAY! His look is like the stuff from "Blades of Glory"
