The Works

Daily Hoop Conversation:
(In which I reveal our real names! *Gasp*)
Hoop: Are you farting on me?!
Tink: No.
Hoop: Yes you are!
Tink: HOW did you know?
Hoop: If I told you the sign, then you'd stop doing it.
Tink: I was trying to be sneaky, too.
Hoop: Well you weren't, Cristinky.
Tink: Cristinky! I kind of like that.
Hoop: Oh yeah?
Tink: Yeah. Just don't tell my family, because then it'll stick. Then I'll have to start a nickname war-
Hoop: -Right... So, what would mine be?
Tink: Um. Jeffpoopy.
Hoop: Real original, babe.

Around The Water Cooler:
Coworker: So where'd you go at lunch?
Tink: To get my little brother a birthday card.
Coworker: Aw.
Tink: Yeah. The front says, "Great, another boring birthday card." The inside says, "With a booger in it!"
Coworker: Ew.
Tink: I know, real mature. It's not like he's turning eight either. He's going to be fifteen!
Coworker: Are you putting money in it?
Tink: What do you think the booger is going to be holding in place? Duh.

Daily Hoop Conversation 2:
Tink: Oo, babe! The local community college is going to be putting on a theater production of Peter Pan!
Hoop: That sounds... awesome.
Tink: We could take the boys (my brothers).
Hoop: Don't do that to them.
Tink: What do you mean?
Hoop: They love you, and because they like spending time with you, they'll go. But they're not going to WANT to go.
Tink: Oh my God. You're right!
Hoop: What are you doing?
Tink: Calling them.

Spam Subjects:
(In the order I received them)
He will dance Only if you shoot at his feet.
Party on this Halloween You're either late or really really early.
Bigger is better they say WHO says? Please, point the way. I'd like THEM to make me clothes.
Why settle for what you have? Pfft. Yeah. Cause that would be stoopid.
Want it to hang? Like, out? No.
As seen on television Hopefully not on COPS.
Dating for sexoholics What dating? Don't they just meet at a hotel?

Question Of The Day:
Without looking back in the archives, what is the most memorable post on this blog? What about another blog? For example, whenever I think of
Mama T's blog, I think of the post where Julia found a dead ladybug in the car and wanted it revived. For the life of me though, I can't find that post. I'm not dreaming it up, am I Kat? When I think of Sunshine, I think of Blog Prom. With Mignon, it's the horribly misspelled (and hilarious) Valentine's from her daughter's class. So, what is it for you? You tell me yours and I'll tell you more of mine.

Picking a signature Tink post would be darn near impossible. You've always got good stuff. But I think the one with the Scottish festival and people juggling chainsaws (or something like that) was funny as hell.

I think I know why the guys were calling me Vangina now.

Community college production of Peter Pan? That will be so bad it will be awesome!

Holy cow! My favorite posts by different bloggers? That would take a whole week to think about. Heck, just coming up with my favorite Tink posts would take a while.

Okay, you're right. I DON'T have anything better to do. ;-)

At 15 November, 2007, Blogger Chris said...

I love the conversation posts. Hee hee - take 'em to Peter Pan! Make 'em suffer! Gift tickets for your brother's birthday - ha!

Since I forgot nearly everything that happens within two weeks, it's really hard for me to pick a favorite...

At 15 November, 2007, Blogger Jay said...

Okay, so I just saw the part where you said "without looking back in the archives". I was getting ready to re-read your blog from beginning to end.

Anyway, I think we all remember how much fun it was when you were taking Wellbutrin. That was fun.

And whichever post resulted in "yodeling in the canyon of love" to be a search term that brought people here! I'll NEVER forget that line. I still intend to use it as the title for my first book. LOL ;-)

Every post from you is a treat and an adventure. There was a post which you talked about a bum you guys had befriended, or was it a drunk. That one cracked me up. The post to your house made me laugh. The posts about family made me cry. The posts about love and heartache made me cry. I always know I'm in for something different, something touching, something beautiful when I go to your blog. Oh, and the post of the engagement ring, well, that was just squeal generating joy!

At 15 November, 2007, Blogger fiwa said...

Man, it is hard to pick a favorite. I know when I started reading you were on the count down to move out of your house and you didn't know where you were going. In general I like the last post of the month 30 quirks for 30 days, and I love the conversations with Hoop, cuz those are always funny. I guess the ones I liked the most were the ones about your first kiss, and the one about your dad (sorry, I know that was probably painful for you, but it said alot about you) and of course I liked the one where you got engaged!

At 15 November, 2007, Blogger Foo said...

"Jeffpoopy"? Puh-leeze. I'd have gone with "Jeffluvium", personally. Not that I have any first-hand knowledge.

At 15 November, 2007, Blogger R.E.H. said...

Well... that was a difficult one... but the proposal at the Halloween fest was something special.

Your Vlogs were great too - when are you getting back to doing one of those?

At 15 November, 2007, Blogger tammy said...

When is peter pan? I think my boys would like it! Justin made me watch Peter Pan almost everyday when he was about 2!

At 15 November, 2007, Blogger mamatulip said...

For me, the most memorable posts are the ones you've written about your father and your relationship with him. It says so much about who you are and the kind of person that you are and have grown into...although it's a tough subject to tackle I feel so proud of you when I read what you say from your heart, and I feel really glad that I know you as well as I do.

Now dude, get outta my brain! I was just thinking about that ladybug post today -- seriously. I can't believe you mentioned it in your post! Great minds think alike. ;)

It's this one:

I pooted on the husband so bad once that he flew out of bed! At that point I'd never seen him move so fast. Ever. I laughed at myself for 30+ minutes . . . . The memory still makes me laugh!

Anyhow, golly Tink, talk about the impossible task! Sheesh. Without looking back, I can't say & even then I'm pretty sure I'd suck. I mean, look at how badly I did on your "Who Knows Tink" quizzes. I didn't win one. And I tried to!

At 16 November, 2007, Blogger Tawcan said...

Hehe Jeffpoopy, that's one original nickname lol. :p

At 16 November, 2007, Blogger janet said...

i loooooooove your daily hoop conversations ... and the monthly wrapups... and around the water cooler ... and even the movie reviews.

aw heck, tink, i think i'd marry you if you weren't already engaged.

and if i weren't already married.

and if i were ... well, yeah. no. never mind.

Favorite posts? Hmmm...I'd have to say the Bling one as it is so awesome and fresh in my mind, the opening up about your dad, discovering you had bananas, there's a picture of a horse that keeps coming to mind, but I can't think of the text. All the watercooler tales...There is always something amazing here.

So...where did "Hoop" come from anyways? The name, not the man...

At 16 November, 2007, Blogger captain corky said...

I had to look back and cheat because I remember liking your dinning room table a lot, and I wanted to take a look at it again.

I also really enjoy your blogs and your lists.

At 16 November, 2007, Blogger captain corky said...

I meant to write your Vlogs and your lists.

At 16 November, 2007, Blogger Alli said...

I haven't been reading you for very long, but I do enjoy your sill conversations with Hoop. It's funny how we can have the most immmature & most intellectual discussions with our mates. :)

I am also looking forward to more wedding topic posts!!

At 16 November, 2007, Anonymous Kim said...

Yours are the ones shortly after you bought the house when everything started going to crap. Both sad and hilarious (only because I've been there!!).

At 16 November, 2007, Blogger Peggy said...

I alread knew what your names were.

Love the conversations, as ever!

Can I see another photograph of your ring?

At 16 November, 2007, Blogger Arabella said...

The one where you talk about memories of your father from when you were young. Strong stuff.

I remember Mama T's ladybug post; you're not making it up!

This is a good topic.

At 16 November, 2007, Blogger Tink said...

More posts or topics that stick out in my mind:

Arabella When you were trying to get pregnant and were getting frustrated, I told you I had a feeling it would happen soon. Then you announced that you were with baby (babies, although you didn't know that at the time) not even a week later! I felt all psychic then. *Snort*

Peggy: Definitely the post about your neighbors dog (Old Blind Bill).

Captain Corky: Who could forget the day you asked for comment donations? How many comments did you end up with?

Susan: The day KT found out she was going to work at the aquarium. I don't know why THAT one. I guess because it was always something I dreamed of doing as a kid. :)

Tawcan: Whenever I think of you, I think of great outdoors adventures. Period. You're an inspiration dude.

Jen: I think the first post I ever read of yours contained a reference to sporks in it. I've loved you ever since.

Foo: Did you know that I think of you every time Hoop or I complain that we should be more active? LOL. Seriously. My motto is, "What would Foo do?" The answer is, get on his cool bike and ride.

Comments to comments:

Kim: The sad thing is, we're STILL going through that crap. I'm just too frustrated to even talk about it anymore. :)

Alli: Aw. I'm sure there will be plenty. We're trying to hold off on any big wedding plans until the New Year. I would like to save my remaining sanity for the holidays. Hehe.

Janet: LOL! That was probably the nicest thing I've heard all day. ((HUG))

Mama T: There's the link! Thank you. I forgot she wanted to put batteries in it. God your kids are cute.

Tammy: Did you get my email? Hopefully I had the right address.

R.E.H. Maybe next week. I had fun with the vlogs. I just didn't want to burn ya'll out on them too soon. Then you'd be like, "Man, I'm sick of seeing her mug. When's she going to go back to WRITING?"

At 16 November, 2007, Blogger Tink said...

More posts or topics that stick out in my mind:

Fiwa: I'm a sucker for your work stories (Ms. Toxic) and the funny conversations you have with hubby.

Newt: When you adopted Lily and Caleb. That whole story is so heartwarming. How it almost was, but wasn't, and then was later on. They were meant to be your babies!

Jay: My favorite post is when you introduced us to your hot "staff." Didn't someone complain? That was the start of something beautiful.

Chris: Whenever I think of your blog, I think of the cats (obviously) and their escapades with the glittery/sparkly mice. :)

Furiousball: There's no ONE post that sticks out. In general, you always make me think of the perfect Dad. If there was a poster for such things, you'd be on it.

At 16 November, 2007, Blogger Orhan Kahn said...


Oh-no-you-didnt! ;)

At 19 November, 2007, Blogger mamatulip said...

One of Furiousball's best posts has to be the one that starts, "Great news, everyone. My ass is fine."

Or something like that.

Day-yum, you are so witty. I think you're one of the wittiest peops on the Internet.
