Not Me-With a Twist

filed under: Miscellaneous on February 8, 2009


Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

As usual, I am off on a different tangent this morning, so I am mixing up my Not Me's a bit. 

I have compiled a list of things that I will NOT be buying in 2009.

Or maybe ever.

1. A snuggie.  The blanket with sleeves.  Ever heard of a sweater?

2. The Obama commemorative coins.

3. Birth control.  Even at the risk of offending Ms. Pelosi.  I like kids. And I like people who like kids.

4. High waisted jeans.  I don't think they look good on anyone me. 

And BTW, I also don't think Jessica Simpson is fat! 


Do you?

5. The memoirs of Rod Blagojevich.

6. Tickets for an Alaskan cruise, anywhere cold, or anywhere that has the ability to produce ice in February/March.  I'm ready for some sunshine and sand in my toes!

7. Stock in Reece's Peanut Butter cups.  I have given them up!  Therefore, I expect sales to drop dramatically.

What are you not doing today??

God bless!

    You’re so creative! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Don’t think I will be spending my money on any of those things as well. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I had too perfect of a week so I won’t be doing my not me Monday today..maybe next week will be better! :0 LOL
    Have a great day!

    I too wrote about Jessica Simpson not being fat in my Not Me! Monday. I love your list… I’m definitely on the same boat. Other than the snuggie– it just seems so comfy though is still terribly tacky

  • stacy Ness says:

    I agree, I am not planning on buying any of those things either. The other thing that I will Not be buying is any GE Products.

  • Baseball Mom says:

    I have to agree with those. I am not planning on buying any of those items. Great list for Not Me! Monday.
    Happy Monday to you!!

  • Bethany says:

    Very fun switch up! Love you lists. Um, how do you give up anything chocolate?

  • Staci says:

    Great Not Me’s! I don’t think I’ll be buying any of those items either…I wouldn’t mind taking up your slack in the peanut buttter cups but they don’t go well with Weight Watchers so I’m afraid the stock will have to drop :0 Have a super week.

  • tracie says:

    LOL…my daughter has one of those blankets and loves it! But we tend to wrap up in blankets when we watch movies or whatever anyway.
    I have never taken birth control due to health issues. I am glad it is there for those who want to use it, though.
    No, Jessica Simpson is NOT fat. She is normal. A term that Hollywood has lost touch with.
    And Reese would lose tons of business if I stopped eating them too. With the peanut butter scare I did stop for a month or so. My weakness is the holiday ones. And May-August are my only safe months from those since they don’t sell them then. : )

  • BP says:

    I enjoyed this as always! I love how you wrote it today, you’r so creative.

  • ElizaBeth says:

    I have to say to #5 WHO?! Guess I won’t be buying that eigther. And that snuggie might make a good star wars costume if it was brown, but since its not it won’t make into my house…. But its rarely cold enough here to even turn on the heat. And I think that my MR will well take care of those peanut butter cups for you, but I’ll pass. And while JS isn’t fat those are ugly jeans on anyone, including the hanger. I hope she cuts them up and starts a jean quilt. Hope you are have a great week!

  • Laura says:

    Nope, don’t think Jessica Simpson is fat either (I actually LOVE her) ๐Ÿ™‚ BUT mom jeans are not cute on anyone, ever! Today I am NOT sitting around my house crying because I have to go back to work tomorrow after 6+ months off with my babies! ๐Ÿ™
    Have a great week!

  • Grace says:

    You are so cotton-pickin’ clever, Amanda! Love this post.
    Um, is it okay if I invite you, Colton and Parker to visit my latest blog post? It’s a fun project for parents and their kids, connected with Valentine’s Day. And…it’s even slightly educational! (Like that justifies it. lol)

  • Gardner Momma says:

    So funny! Those snugglie commercials crack me up – like it’s so hard to snuggle up with a blanket! And no, I’m not diggin’ the high waisted pants either. I love Jessica (and no way is she fat) but don’t know what she was thinking. Not pretty on anyone. If she can’t pull them off…. the rest of us have no chance!

  • Kristin says:

    Great list! I wish I had given up Reese’s but I haven’t and probably will never!

  • julie says:

    Funny! No, I think that Jessica was just having a “Bad Jeans” day! “)

  • Karen says:

    Oh, Girl, I am NOT going to give up Reese’s Peanutbutter Cups. Not.ever.
    But thanks for the stock tip. *grin*
