Only a man could've come up with this....

**disclaimer** For those of you who don't like TMI, do not read on.

But for you other sick individuals, here's the deal. I had just bought a new package of pads. Yes, I said pads, as in Always brand personal hygiene accessories. I pulled one out this week, yes, to use. It's a fact of life, people. If your offended, read the disclaimer. Anyway, on the protective backing for the "wings" (which I hate anyway) was the message "Have a happy period." WTH?! Was this little message meant to be cute? It wasn't. There is nothing happy about having your period, and I'm definitely not going to have a happy period just because the protective backing on my pads tell me to. My conclusion is that there is no way a woman would've thought to do something so incredibly stupid. Who in the hell said that that would be a good idea? Who in the hell passed that idea? Whatever.

Went to the beer garden at Strassenfest last night in town. Fun times. Die hard drinkers and it was only Thursday. It started to get really really windy and you could see some dark nasty clouds rolling in and a mildly impressive display of lightning and noone in the beer garden left. Well, me and some of my friends did, but that was only to get a gigantic, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip cookie to help soak up some of the alcohol we'd ingested. Can I just say...lovin' the slushie Bacardi Silver O3 and the Watermelon?! Genius.

I got my little Junkitz spiral bound tabbed book done for class next Monday. And, for not being inspired at all when I sat down to have to do it, it turned out pretty darn cute. It didn't go in the direction that I had originally planned, but I'm proud of it. I didn't take any pictures of it because I had to hurry and get it to the Doodlebug. I'll take some pics of it next week and post it.

Well, for some reason, my Fergie video is no longer available, so I went and found the clip of one of my favorite commercials...the Nextel "Push It" commercial. God, I love youtube.com. You can find anything there.

That "Have a Happy Period" just made my day. Laughing so hard here. Jason trolls youtube all the time for stuff, he is addicted

Becky said...

I L.O.V.E. that commercial!!!!

ROFL about the entire "disclaimer" and "have a happy period". It's an oxymoron! It just doesn't happen. it should be "have a happy satan" at least that's what we use to call it back in the day.

Jaime said...

I guess it gave you a good laugh. Some people....

Jaime said...

OMG, I never saw that commercial! Pretty funny.

Cami said...

ROFL @ you!!!!! did they include some lil blue happy pills in that box??? teeheheee
What's next i say?!?!?
yeah, I'm thinking if they feel the need to include slogans, stick to something more realistic like "bring on the motrin" "don't piss me off" or "Life's a bitch!"

and
I hadn't seen that commercial but I love it...too funny :D

Lisa said...

LMAO!! I so with you on the slogan. Only men would have come up with that bull. Same thing with the tampon commercials where the chick is horseback riding or out on the beach, whatever!! When are they actually going to make a commercial where she's lying on the couch in sweats with her hair pulled up into a ponytail eating ice cream from the carton and getting pissed at the commercials of the girl horseback riding? Now that's reality!! ;)

Tiffany said...

You are too funny!!!! I was reading this and laughing out loud and Amy had to come in and see why I was laughing so much. Read it to her and we both agree a man came up with that one!!!
