Posts That Shimmy & Shake: Tamara Lunardo & Ricky Anderson

Posted on

It’s time for my favorite blogs of the week! As usual, I try to get one from the ladies and from the dudes.

Pick #1: I’m starting off my favorite reads-of-the-week with Tamara Lunardo from Tamara Out Loud. This week, Tamara wrote a piece called  Tamara, Literally Out Loud in which she explains how much she dislikes it when people mispronounce her name. And she explains how everyone has mispronounced it for her entire life.

I could totally feel Tamara’s pain.

Pick #2: I’m new to Ricky Anderson‘s blog. Because I just started stalking following him, I can tell you that he is a self-proclaimed computer geek who is married and has at least one young’um. Also, he likes to eat cereal. I came to Ricky’s hilarious post Who Is The Frank Sinatra of Our Generation? via Knox McCoy‘s blog and it got me thinking “Huh. Who is the sweet rebel crooner that is doing this his way?” Do you agree with Ricky’s analysis? Gotta read to find out.

But first, what do you think that guy up there so mad about?

  1. Fun links. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Hi Catie: What do you think the guy is so mad about? Seriously?

  2. I think he’s mad at his extra huge nostrils. I would be.

    1. I bet could put one hundred Ticonderoga pencils up there. 😉

  3. That guy’s nostrils come with a toll plaza.

    1. They could handle an extra wide Caddy. 😉

  4. He’s just spent 2 hours grading middle school essays. No wait, I was confused with my reflection on the computer screen.

    1. Leanne:

      Your nostrils are not THAT big! 😉

  5. I think he’s mad about bad grammar.

    1. Ding ding ding! 😉 Yes, i m certian that iz it.

  6. I’m deeply honored, Stocker.

    I mean, Stalker.

    I mean, Renée.

    Oh, and I don’t think that dude’s mad. I think he’s getting electrocuted.

    1. Hi Ricky!

      I REALLY did love the piece! Strong work. 😉

  7. I think he just dropped his laptop on his toe

    1. He definitely has the deranged look of someone who has just lost his entire hand-drive.

  8. I’m thinking he just caught his kids writing all over his brand new cream leather sofa with a purple Sharpie marker (this is why I bought a brown leather couch, so this sort of thing WOULDN’T happen).

    Either that, or the kids just wrote “NO” all over the brand new pine (a very soft wood) trim gouging the word into the trim with a pen. Just ask me how much trouble Thing 1 and 2 were in for that one…

    1. Oh Bob… Maybe they were trying to write “ON” and you were just looking at it upside down? I guess it doesn’t much matter, right? Gouges is gouges.

      Did you see what her Thing 1 and Thing 2 did to Leanne’s car doors? http://stuffkidswrite.com/2011/05/09/stuff-kids-write-on-non-traditional-surfaces/

      That might make you feel a little better. Maybe not. 😉

      1. Yeah, I saw that when you re-blogged it. My kids did the same thing at 10 and 7. I could’ve killed them.

  9. He just realized his shirtless, lawmaker, Twitter photos were getting national attention.

    1. And that he was going to have to create some kind of ridiculous story about it, but eventually admit the truth. What a “weiner”! 😉
