May Fly on the Wall

Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 13 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.

Last month I shared some of the things a Fly might see if he watched me posting on Facebook. Those posts were all kid and home related. This month, I’m sharing some of my more popular posts, some kid and home related, but some blog related ones too.

*I Posted: Once a post featuring my Crab Pockets recipe went live, I posted about it on FB. Then I got off FB for a few hours to get some errands done. When I got back, a friend had left this message on my post: “Is this supposed to say recipe for crap pockets included?”
*So I deleted the post and replaced it with this one: “January Fly on the Wall posts are up and my recipe is for CRAB Pockets. I rarely make CRAP Pockets unless my kids have been REALLY REALLY annoying!

*I Posted: Best comment on my blog EVER:
Remarkable! It's in fact remarkable post, I have got much clear idea regarding from this paragraph. Also see my site: lose man boobs”
*Answer from a friend who misses out on the joy of spam comments: Stupid spam filter has robbed me of these  unspeakably funny messages. Thanks for sharing yours!

*I Posted: I’m only 982 page views from 25,000. Could 982 of you go read one of my posts? Please?
*Answer from a friend: Would it help if I went to your blog 982 times?

 *I Posted:So if I tweet, and a friend re-tweets my tweet, and I re-tweet her re-tweet of my tweet, that’s Check Mate, right? I win?

 *I Posted:Husband is coming home from work because he wrenched his back and is in a lot of pain. Older son comes home from school for lunch. This is supposed to be my alone time. Did no one get the memo?

*On April 1st I Posted: Today is the day the cleaners come to clean my house and 2nd son woke up vomiting. April Fools Day is kicking my butt.

*Another April 1st Post: For April Fools Day I always tell the kids it snowed out and there’s no school. First time they fell for it, but by the 10th time, not so much. So this morning I said that it snowed and my son said “I know”. Huh? That’s not how it goes. I look out the window and it HAD snowed. Well played, Mother Nature, well played.

 *I Posted:Those of you who don’t have teenagers, read no further, you don’t want to know. Those who do know what I’m dealing with: Son constantly tries to get around curfew. Last week he called 5 minutes before to say he’d be late. I said “OK, but do no do this again.” So last night 5 minutes before curfew he texted his brother to have his brother tell me that he’s be late. Seriously? He doesn’t put that much thought into his homework . . .

*I Posted: A helpful fact: If you open a bottle of Red, you HAVE to finish it, you can’t just put it in the fridge like with a White.
*Someone funnier than me answered: You can put White in the fridge????   LOL.

So that’s a peek at my Facebook page. Sound like fun? Join me (shameless plug):  Baking In A Tornado Facebook page.

Ingredients:
5 new potatoes
3 sweet potatoes
1/2 lb baby carrots
10 dried apricots, chopped
1/2 stick margarine, melted
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 tsp cinnamon


Directions:
*Peel potatoes and new potatoes. Cut into large cubes.
*Boil potato chunks, sweet potato chunks and carrots, just until they start to get tender. Check them often with a fork, they should still be firm, you're going to bake them and you don't want all of the pieces to mash.
*Drain the vegetables, run some cold water over them and drain again.
*Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a casserole dish.
*Mix the margarine, honey, orange juice and cinnamon to make a sauce.
*Gently mix the apricots and the sauce into the vegetables.
*Cover and bake for 30 minutes.
*Uncover, gently mix and bake another 15 minutes.

  1. I love your witty facebook posts. Though I'm usually a stalker, I hope you know I'm on of your 300,000,000 FB fans and always smiling. I would like to know the cure for man boobs, though. I might need that link. Alert: Today is the last day of school. From this day on, be prepared for e-mails from me searching for my sanity. You were warned. :)

  5. I think you should do an entire post on favorite spam comments! Yours always crack me up. Why are they so funny when YOU post them, but were so incredibly annoying on my site before I added a spam filter?

  6. According to my spam I'm a man with high blood pressure, no hair, needs a job, an apartment, a girlfriend, a pair of red bottom knock offs and a vast assortment of meds to cope with it all.
    Makes me feel like I'm doing just a little bit better than the day that guy is having. :)
    I always love your Fly posts.

  15. Seem's' like I'm really missing out here as not on facebook but it seems like the spams have got you too. I've had a few and now they even use your blog name in the middle of the comment as if they're talking to you. It's just all so funny.

    Had a good laugh about the Crap pockets, ha ha ha. You should have left it up there, I'm sure everyone would have been even more curious to see what it was all about :)

    1. I noticed the spams have gotten more personal. Unfortunately whoever writes them still doesn't have a grasp of the English language.

  16. I REALLY love your fans, Karen. SO much fun! Oh, and I'm quite envious of your spam comments, too :)

    The "Fly on the Wall" is fabulous! I'm thinking of starting something similar, entitled, "Fruit flies in my Kitchen" ;-)
