I'm in Manitoba Visiting Ironic Mom, Eh!

Posted on

I’m guest-posting at Ironic Mom today!

Back in June, Ironic Mom (aka: Leanne Shirtliffe) held a big, exciting contest called “What’s in a Name?” in honor of her 200th post where she discussed how people have butchered, screwed around with, and twisted her name which has kept her entertained for decades.

I could totally relate.

I told her my story here.

And then she told me I won here!

I felt so special!

Then I learned she had used a Random Number Generator to determine the winner.

But privately, she told me she was really psyched I had won.

So that was cool.

As the recipient of the Grand Prize, I got to post on Leanne’s blog.

(Um, Leanne has like 10,237 followers, so I’m hoping some of her people fall in love with me.)

So, my shizz is in Canada today.

Ironic Mom's Place: Home of Thing 1 & Thing 2

Seriously, I’m at Ironic Mom’s today, where she is vacationing in Manitoba.

Click on the picture, and you’ll be there in like one second.

I hope you’ll read my piece and comment over there.

Or here.

Or both.

Either way.

It’s all good.

For those of you who do not reside in Canada, you do not even have to have a valid Passport or go through Customs or anything.

So hooray for hockey and Queen Elizabeth, beavers and Biebers, maple leaves and Mounties.

And all things Canadian.

Especially Ironic Mom.

  1. Congrats on making it to Canada, eh!
    And congrats on Monkey learning responsible pet ownership on his own without actually having to own a pet or clean up random piles of liquid spewed from animal openings. If nothing else, he will be more aware if he ever does get a real pet–unless it’s a wolf. Then I would be worried.

    1. No more pets. That is so 2008. And, yes, that is where you lost me — at “spew.” Any of it. From anywhere. Thanks for reading. 😉

  2. So so glad you could make it, eh! Maybe it won’t be virtual some time! Love that Monkey. We’ll take him up here any day.

    1. Hey Leanne! Real life sounds so good. I love that we are only ONE hour apart. And tomorrow is Thursday. So…

      Thanks for hosting me at your place.

      I hope I was worthy. 😉

      Should I send you a few more emails?

  3. Ya had me up until Beiber.

    1. Ha! Monkey actually told me The “Beibs” hailed from Canada. It sounded pretty good with beavers. 😉

  4. Um, please do not mention Justin Bieber. We just wish he would go away.

    Now if you want some Canadian talent, you gotta try Joe Hall and the Continental Drift.

    1. I think JB did go away. Didn’t he export himself over here? All I know is that every American boy says he DOESN’T want Beiber hair, but every American boy is sporting the Beiber hair.

      I will Google Joe Hall and Continental Drift.

      Honestly, I almost mentioned the McKenzie Brothers. Do you remember them? I would imagine you’d like to see them go, too. 😉

      1. Ha! I remember the Mckenzie Brothers Christmas: 3 French Toast, 2 Turtlenecks and a Beer. 😉

        What about Brian Adams?

      2. What about Bryan Adams? 😉

      3. All you have to do is click on the link in my first replay, and you’ll get one of Joe Hall’s best songs, and you don’t even have to worry about Google, I’ve already done it for you 🙂

      4. Wayne:

        Seriously, you are my hero. Someday, we will talk about that whole TweetDeck thang. 😉 And Monkey still wants to be you when he grows up.

  5. Is Canadian a difficult language to learn?

    1. EH? You’ll have to speak up; My AT&T doesn’t do well in Saskatchewan. 😉

  6. Found you through Leanne, so I’m certain your grand prize is paying off! I’m a follower now. 🙂

    1. Leanne and I have a lot of the same core folks, but I am thrilled to have found a few great new people. Like you. 😉

  7. CONGRATS!! You are awesome, so I am sure others followers of Ironic Mom will be enthralled with your post and begin following you!

    1. Thanks Giarra!
      Nice to know you are still following along. 😉 And creeping ever closer!

  8. Fun guest post, Renee…if you ever make it east to New Brunswick, look me up!

    Wendy

    1. Thanks Wendy! I hope you are doing well! And there is a munch better chance of landing in New Brunswick. Since I am on EST! 😉
