SOoooo not my fault!

a fellow blogger cued me in to the fact that a special holiday was coming up soon (today actually, silly scheduled posts...) - Blame Someone Else Day once again rears its ugly head!  I've known about a bunch of bizarre holidays (talk like a Pirate and Sneak a Zucchini onto Your Neighbor's Front Porch Day come to mind immediately) and I celebrate them with zeal (zeal meaning of course to ignore them except for the moments when I am trying to be witty)

So how is it I missed this one?  It's probably your fault.  or maybe your hairdresser's dog's cousin's neighbor's mother's first boyfriend's grown daughter's pedicurist's...  I don't care, as long as it isn't MY fault.  

I'd list all the things that weren't my fault today - but since that list is REALLY long, and probably extremely tedious - just imagine the contents of your life (laundry, dishes, errands...) and know that I'm not to blame for any of it.

Who am I blaming?  ummm... I'm going with Angelina Jolie... no, not because I actually care about her  puffy lipped face or her homewrecker tattooed self - I just figured I had to lay the blame somewhere.  She can blame me for all her problems if she likes too - I'm nothing but fair!  (now when somebody Googles Angelina Jolie hoping for skimpy pictures they're going to end up here...  maybe they'll stay and see the error of their ways?)

This is perfect - because tomorrow is also known as "suck it up - let it go and enjoy your significant other day..."

P.S. If today's post isn't the best you've EVER read - it's Barbaloot's fault - I'll let Angelina off the hook for that one :)  Thanks for the info Barb!

I prefer to blame everything on the weather today. Who said it could be freezing in February?!

(And also-I'm glad to see we have the same feelings about Angelina Jolie.)

Forget Blame Someone Else Day. Let's just have a Blame Angelina Jolie Day. It'll be huge!

I always seem to blame myself for everything, but blaming it on Angelina Jolie is perfect. Anyway, I hope you are having a great day. I just tagged you, so check my blog out.

I'm down with Becky and Malinda. I'll blame Angelina for everything else now.

LOL...this is actually weird or maybe cool, I don't know. I just made a new post and Angelina Jolie happens to be in that post. Come read it see if that'll make you feel better. You can actually not just blame her but mock her at the same time...LOL.

Oh, I get it now!!! I am totally on board with blaming it on Angelina, and the weather, and Milli Vanili and MY HAIR!

LY!

Now don't jump all over me, as I don't defend the actions of the person that was mentioned, but I did have a chance to meet AJ while working at the Olympics and she was very kind. The thing that really struck me was how she made a point of introducing her friend that she was with, making sure that she also got attention and recognition. It really was impressive. So disagree all you want with the choices that you cannot condone, but there is some grace in there too.
