Ultimate Blog Party 2011

So, this is not my typical post, because I don't actually want to punch Ultimate Blog Party 2011 in the throat.  Rather, the nice ladies over at 5 Minutes for Mom are sponsoring this event so we can all find some cool, new (to us) blogs to read.  Go check out all the links they have.

If you're new to People I Want to Punch in the Throat - welcome!  Don't worry, I won't hurt you.

A bit about me and my blog:

Literally, less than a month ago, the Hubs and I were watching the Today show and I couldn't move fast enough to turn it off before Hoda & Kathie Lee appeared.  I said, "Ugh, I just want to punch those two in the throat!"  The Hubs said, "You know, you should start a blog called People I Want to Punch in the Throat.  You really can't stand a lot of people and you need to get it off your chest."

He was totally egging me on.  He threw down the gauntlet and the hell I was going to ignore that!  So I wrote about Hoda & Kathie Lee.  I put it on my Facebook and I realized that people liked what I had to say.  It became addictive and cathartic.  I just write what's on my mind.  Some of it is political (I'm a lefty, so if that's a problem you should probably go now), some of it is about celebrities (I won't pick on Charlie Sheen though, because I believe he's ill and he should be in treatment) but a lot of it is about just every day crap that just bugs the hell out of me.  This blog is cheaper than drugs and /or counseling and I believe it will single-handedly keep me off a roof with an AK-47.

When I'm not writing this blog, I'm a full time wife to the Hubs, a full time mom to two rug rats and a full time Realtor.

So, welcome - take a look around and see if you like what I have to say!

I'm serious when I say that this is the absolutely funniest blog I have found so far at the Ultimate Blog Party. It's so wrong, which is why I love it. My personal secret fantasy is to carry a nail gun with me in my car and shoot the tires of idiots who don't know how to drive or park. But my husband hasn't exactly encouraged that, so... but maybe one day -- you just never know. I look forward to coming back often!

Thanks, Danygrl! I love the nail gun idea - that would teach the giant SUVs to stay in between their lines.

I LOVE how you've taken your annoyance and channelled it creatively! You're right, there are a LOT of people that could stand to be punched! :D I will definitely be back. I hope you'll stop by my blog and say hi--and hopefully refrain from punching me, haha! :D

I read the Octo-Kate story first and then came to find your party post.

And I just gotta say...I wanna punch Kate Gosselin in the throat too. We could totally tag team her.

Oh yeah, I'm stopping by from the UBP. I think you and I will get along just fine! :)

Love your blog! I think I met you at a homeshow over a year ago! I'm glad you weren't doing this blog then, because I'm sure "direct sellers" would have been a topic for sure! Fyi, I'm no longer in the business so go for it if you wanted to punch me in the face! LOL!

Jen Piwtpitt said...

Marlys, Thank you! I BET we did meet at a show. Some of my best friends are direct sellers, and since I'm the scourge of the Earth - a Realtor - I can't punch salespeople in the throat, heehee.

I too want my gun in the car to shoot people who do not follow the rules of the road-except that my husband hides my gun- not sure why... Anywho, I have a new idea that is less lethal and hopefully not illegal. I want stickers made that say "You're a dumbass"! Then when people take up two or three parking places or double park, I take stick one on their windshield. Come on people, if you can't park your ridiculously big SUV or pickup truck- then DO NOT DRIVE ONE!!!

Are You a Willful Wife?

Readers like to send me links to blogs or articles they think I might feel strongly about. This week I received a link to a blog called B...
