Dumb as They Come! or Do they have summer school for adults?


There are moments when I just have to shake my own head at myself for being the dumbest person I know. It's like, did I even GO to college?? Is this old age? Or genetic. I feel like I USED to be very smart. And then one day I woke up and was all "what's this stupid facebook thingie?"

This is how I felt the other day when my mom said "can you even believe this casey Anthony trial?"
and I said "really? there's a trial for exposing yourself on the internet? Did he get arrested for the whole twitter thing??"

My mom looked at me dumbfounded. "NO. CASEY Anthony. The woman who murdered her CHILD?!?!"

I hadn't even heard of this. But of course I said "oohhh! yah! Of course. I heard you wrong!"


I just thought that people were calling The Anthony Weiner stuff "Casey Anthony" for some strange reason.

If that had been an exchange with a friend I would have admitted my stupidity. But admit to MY MOM??? that I'm dumber and more out of the loop that HER??


I blame Twitter wars and Hangin' with Friends and my new obsession with walking to audio books. Sure I've lost 40 lbs...but I don't even know who's running for President! I DO know however, that Ashton Kutcher stopped his war with Village Voice over sex trafficking and that Dooce is accused of being a poverty tourist and that the word "shovel" stumps people in hangin' every. single. time.

I really need to branch out  to something more mainstream media. Like the NEWS news. And no, not US weekly news. At LEAST People magazine.  At least!

There is a Casey Anthony Trial app. I think you should download it, as well as Wiener's pics.

What's a poverty tourist?

Know what else stumps people on Hangin' with Friends. NOODLES. I don't know why, but I kill with that word every time.

I'm totally guessing SHOVEL every time I play with you now.

Also, congrats on being well on your way to being a Skinny Bitch. Fun!

Apparently it's a rich whitey who goes on vacation with a charity to a 3rd world country to "save" them. Something like that. It's some lame term used by lame people because I drive through the 'hood ALL THE TIME and not even in a charitable way! So I guess that would make me a poverty commuter?!

I guess I should hurry up and read that People article on the Casey Anthony trial so that I can be more in the know. Thankfully, I was able to wow my family with my vast knowledge about the Craigslist Killer. So at least I have that.

40 lbs?! Damn girl! I need some books on tape! Congrats!

I'm sure if I thought about it I could come up with a good comparison to the CA thing. I know I've done something similar.
Am I going to have to start playing Hangin' with friends? I've avoided it. I was late to the angry birds thing, so I've been avoiding this too.

You know, as I have gotten older, I've realized that my wee brain can only hold so much current information. Okay, so I know the lyrics of Katie Perry's latest tune and I actually know what was going on with the Casey Anthony trial, but I have no idea what "hangin'" is. It's not so bad until you have to talk to teens--then they bust your chops on that lack 'o knowledge every time. Ugh. I embrace my stupidity on certain things.

And I'm seriously envious of your weight loss. DAMN, pally. That is impressive!

KELLI...YES! "peeweerocks" is me on hangin'~

I think I found some of that 40 lbs that you lost, I would like to return it, where may I send it?
