Delivering the Ha Ha

There are two kinds of blogs that I love to read. Blogs with good, strong, honest writing and blogs that are funny. Not just a little funny, but really insanely funny. And when I find a new blog that is both well written and makes me aspirate Fresca, I'm in love. LOVE. And I feel the need to share. So, let the sharing commence.



WoogsWorld
Follow Mrs Woog on Twitter

I found Mrs. Woog through Aussie Mummy Bloggers (AMB) after I impersonated an Australian and effortlessly infiltrated their site (take note, China). She is a mum in Sydney with a full house and an intrepid sense of humor. She can advise you on what to do when you walk in on your boss in the toilet, in all their glory, or when your child's playdate's mother starts stalking you. I know, I know, both of these happen to me all the time! But I wish she would stop posting pictures of me in my bikini without asking. (Most people pay for those you know.)


Mommy Has a Headache
Follow Emma on Twitter

Another AMB find. But Emma doesn't live in Australia, she lives in Baltimore, is originally from London and, like me, managed to easily infiltrate the AMB ranks (take note, Papua New Guinea). Emma has written several books and recently notified me that I won her latest, Cocktails at Naptime, after I entered a caption contest on her blog. Yay me! I can't wait to read it. She championed a petition to have World Cup soccer players remove their shirts more often while playing (why stop with shirts Emma?). You'll be pleased to know she has a very normal vagina.


Clinically Fed Up
Follow Nikkii on Twitter

I love Nikkii, aka MrsW (not to be confused with Mrs Woog). First off, this is a photography blog. Nikkii lives in Scotland and does things with Photoshop that make me weep.  The humor, that's just a extra toss-in because she loves us too (loves us like all the vowels in her name). What you want to do is get Nikkii to read your blog so that she'll come over and leave comments like she did on this post of mine, or this one of Tenille's. Nikkii and her family are traveling to Florida next month where they are going to personally scrub and bleach pelicans on behalf of Britain because for-all-that-is-holy BP is obviously not going to do anything about it.* Or maybe she's just visiting family. I dunno.  I would love to pack up the kids and go meet her but all our money is tied up in this mediation/divorce thing god dammit and I can't afford any frivolous plane ticket purchases. Besides, I don't let my kids handle bleach. But I digress. Go read her blog. Like this Skullcandy rant. Because she's very, very clever.  Her blog is also nominated for best photography blog in the MADS so go vote for her.


* oh quiet down Britian, I know BP is a multinational company, it's just so rare that you ever get excited about anything so I have to poke your tender spots. Now get over here and start scrubbing. And bring Cadbury please.

  1. I thought the pelicans in Florida were supposed to be brown? First time I saw one I was sitting on the balcony of the Quality Inn on Daytona Beach and a group of them buzzed us - ugly fuckers if ever I saw an ugly fucker. At least when you scrub oil off a puffin with your best toothbrush it comes up a bonnie colour.

    This is my way of saying aw shucks I love you too - you knew that tho.

  9. Gee, if I'd known you were going to send people my way, I would have tidied up a bit...

    Thank you for the link to Mommy Has A Headache, if for no other reason than the gratuitous yet delightful pic of our young Socceroo Harry.

  10. I'm always on the lookout for more blogs to read, so thank you! I will have a look

  11. Thanks for pointing these blogs out! Totally agree with your comments about WoogsWorld, have been following Mrs Woog for a little while and it is always a fun read. Even her comments are lol quality!

    So im off to check out the other two right now - delivering the Ha Ha is just what's required when you are up to your armpits in temper tantrums and sleep deprivation

  12. Thanks for the heads up will head off and check them out. Oh and by the way you pretend Aussie you - Cadbury is Australian made (well at least that is what I've been taught all my life). I can send you some if you like - just give me your address and your favourite type. Our pelicans are beautiful and white - not brown like the America ones. I wish I had the money to go over there and scrub some clean, even if they are brown. The pictures are breaking my heart. xxx

  13. Where the fuck do you get the time to read all these blogs - and make comments?

  14. I heart Mrs Woog too. She's hilarious! Plus, she's got great boobies. Have you seen her new profile pic on AMB? Hehehe.

    ReplyDelete
  15. No, didn't mean the accolades.. just wondering where I'd fit, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well, so far, on your recommendation, I have followed the link to WOOGSWORLD.
    I liked it so much I read it from beginning to end.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm on my way to check them all out right now! Except for that Nikkii's blog.. she's a weirdo you know, runs around when we're out asking to take pictures of barstaff in the pub while brandishing a bottle of red wine or 3... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ooooh thanks! I've been looking for some new reads. And I looooove funny blogs.

    ReplyDelete
  19. @ Badger, I neglect my children. Just wait until I retire like you. I'll be like a commenter on speed.

    Oh, and I don't sleep.

    ReplyDelete
  20. @ Kakka - you are so sweet. Confession: I don't actually like Cadbury, it's milk chocolate! I do like those Violet Crumble bars you all make and the dark chocolate Kit Kats, neither of which we have here, but wouldn't they melt in our 90 degree temps here? xx

  21. @ Mrs Woog, (checking) payment still has not arrived. Send Qantas ticket instead?

  22. I spend so much time paying attention to the serious and depressing, finding a truly hilarious blog now and then is a catharsis. I'll add one you may like that I found last week, while surfing through Blogspot blogs. It's not often that I honestly laugh out loud to the point that others look in to see whats so funny, but this one does it every time.

  23. Thanks Paul. Just the fact that she has 2 about pages is a winner!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sorry Oz, Cadbury is British. Though they did open their first overseas factory in Hobart in 1918. Thank you Wikipedia. I still prefer Violet Crumbles - yum!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for the recommendations! Hadn't heard of them, will have to check them out. I didn't see my comment listed under your sexual abuse account/post a while back. I wonder if it didn't get posted, or was it removed. I am truly sorry if I said something I should not have!

    ReplyDelete
  26. thank you thank you. big yes to honest and funny blogs. perfect.

  27. Oh no I am devastated - all this time believing we invented Cadbury - are you sure Wikipedias not fibbing. Violet Crumbles or Dark Kit Kats (if I can find those) in the fall it shall be. xxx

    ReplyDelete
  28. @ Kakka, I bow down to your goddessness. xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks for this post. I love finding new blogs to visit. And your two requirements are the same as mine. Funny and/or brutally honest blogs definitely keep you coming back for more.

    Love it here, by the way!

  30. @Kakka The Cadbury family are quite a fascinating family to study http://tinyurl.com/cadburyfamilyare and are a staple of higher ed sociology courses - they're more English than pork pies and jellied eels :)
    Well they were until Kraft bought them over and it was bye bye to another British company - I'm miffed - if they move production out of the UK I expect to see their whole range branded "May contain traces of nuts" which will really piss me off!

  31. Bugger there's an extra "are" in there!

  32. Ah, brilliant, thank you. It's been a while since I've snorted a beverage of any sort through my nostrils, so I look forward to following you suggestions :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Gah! YOUR suggestions, I meant YOUR suggestions!

    ReplyDelete
  34. @ Kristy, your comment is there sweets. xx

    @ Fallen Monkey, I knew what you meant, I can read monkey minds.

Mmmm, comments - nom, nom, nom, nom!
