I'm Back! And Blogfests I would Never Join

Hey, everybody.  I'm back!  My family and I have moved to Georgia and are fairly settled.  Most of the last couple of weeks has been spent standing in lines.  I've got some good stories to tell about that!  The zoo creatures arrived safely.  Sort of.  Our last hermit crab decided to shed his shell and promptly died two days later.  So now we're down to only three pets:  a dog, a cat, and a frog.  Not much of a zoo! (Fortunately we didn't have to duct tape the cat to the roof of the car.  Kitty Prozac worked just fine.)  I'll share some stories in the next couple of days, and then I'll get back to the business of my daily insanity.  I really missed you guys!

Okay.  So to get started, I just had to do this anti-blog hop:  









A blog hop in honor of Mr. anti-blog hop himself, Gary at Klahanie. He's the best Anti-Challenge Spokesperson ever!

Hosted by Mark “Madman” Koopmans, Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh, “Life is Good” Tina, Rockin’ Robyn Engel and Morgan “The Morg” Shamy.

The rules are *very* simple. Create the titles of three PG-13 rated blogfests you would never join - and then add a descriptive sentence or two.

Blogfests I would never join:

1.  Worst Place to Take a Dump:  The smelliest, most unsanitary, most completely disgusting place you've ever had to relieve yourself in.

2.  The Vomit Comet:  Worst amusement park rides ever!

3.  The Boring Blogfest:  So boring, there's nothing to write about.

What do you think?  Would you want to join such awful blog hops?

  1. LOL, Sherry... those are awful blogfests!

  8. Welcome back! (And welcome to Georgia!)

    Good ones! (I say that much like Bubba might say it after someone belches the alphabet or blasts a particularly impressive fart.) I'm especially impressed with the vomit comet...

    1. Bubba would probably participate in those first two blog fests!

  9. I'm seeing a lot of poop and vomit at this party. It's all good, so long as I don't have to clean anything up. Great, awful list, Sherry.

    Thanks for joining the Gary-fest.

  10. I'm glad you're settling in! Georgia's great, but not quite as awesome as Florida.

    I've seen this blogfest floating around, and goodness, it sounds like fun, but sanity comes first, eh? Cant' bite off more than I can chew. (Unless it's cheese.)

    1. I really liked Florida when I lived there. Georgia, I'm still not sure about.

  11. Great blogfest suggestions I'd never join! And welcome back. Happy to hear you're settling in. I'm certain your zoo will grow again.

    1. Great to be back. I'm not sure about the zoo growing back. I'm kind of petted out.

      Delete
  12. So nice to see you back! I've got a lot to share in those blogfests..lol just kidding.

  13. The Boring Blogest...You know, that kinda twangs my curiosity. I'd probably HAVE to go over to see if it REALLY is that boring! After all, I'm just that nosey that way, heh heh.

  14. Glad all is well at your cell. Boring blogfest, I could do math?

  15. Good ones! Congrats on the move, sorry about the crab, and why didn't you duct tape? We're all allergic to cats around here...

    1. My husband really wanted to do duct tape. I figured it would probably hurt the cat when we ripped it off. ;)

  16. I'm sorry about the crab. :(

    I can imagine all the moving stories you have. I can't wait to read them.

    I wouldn't join those blogfests.

  19. Welcome back!

    You kinda made me sick just thinking about #2, and you don't want to hear about my number 1!

    1. Sorry. I thought I'd come back with a bang!

  20. All 'fests that should be and will be avoided! Thanks for the warning that these might someday happen. hehe

    1. I hope I didn't give anybody ideas to start one of these!

  21. Glad the move went safely, sorry about the crab. Expect you have so many boxes still to unpack. Look forward to hearing some of the stories.

    1. Yes, there are still more boxes. It's never-ending!

  22. Having traveled a lot in 3rd world countries, I'm afraid I could participate in the first blogfest... As for the second, it wouldn't be an amusement ride but a flying into the St George Utah airport (the old one on a mesa during a 110 degree afternoon) in a small commuter. Although I was never sick, I don't think I was ever on one of those flights when the thermals were bad (heat rises) that someone didn't get sick. As for the third... Welcome back, glad your move is over, but sorry about the crab's demise. Enjoy the peaches and humidity!

    1. I bet you have quite a few nauseating stories to share! I need to try a Georgia peach. Haven't quite gotten there yet.

  24. Congrats on the move. Sorry about the crab. I recently passed through Georgia. I love the nice looking welcome sign.

    1. I almost missed the welcome sign. I can't even remember what it looked like, I was so tired from the long drive!

  26. Congratulations on the successful trip! Also those are really terrible blogfests, so I love them.

  27. Hey Sherry,

    Sorry for the delay. Ah, the life of a celebrity. Okay, what am I doing? Oh yeah, three outstanding non-choices. Although the first one would be a sitting non-choice and yes, "sitting" is missing the "h"...The second one gives me the sensation of real blogfests. The third one is a reminder of my comment which might make you fall asleep.

    Georgia, as in the State and not the country, is all the better for having you folks live there.

    Yay to irony! I'm going now.

    Gary ;)

    1. I think it would be interesting to have a blog hop with some of these weird things. Hmmm. Kidding!

  31. Oh yes, and congratulations on your move...only one casualty...that's pretty respectable!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am so very glad your move went well. Sorry about the hermit crab, though. No, I wouldn't join any of those, but then I don't join much online and I don't believe I have ever fested. ;) Can hardly wait to hear some of the travel and move stories!
