Would you say that I had a PLETHORA of pinatas?

Things that are weird #1:
The Baby has taken to randomly saying, "BOW CHICKA BOW BOW." Why, I have no idea. He's all Boogie Nights. Coincidentally he has also taken to going pantsless at any given moment, and showing off his 'peanuts'. (Much to the horror of the party guests.) Pants are for losers, I guess. It's like a 70s porn flick up in here.

Things that are weird #2:
When someone emails you and says, "Where can I buy lots of yeast. Like tons. LIKE FIVE POUNDS." Disgusting.

Things that are weird #3:
Did you know that there are non-violent pinatas now? Yep. You can no longer hit them with a stick, OH GOD NO. Pinatas are all PC now. I was at the party store and I asked, "What are all these strings hanging off this thing for?" Apparently now each kid gets to 'pull a string' til the candy comes tumbling out. Oh...joy. YAWN.

Things that are weird #4:
I often have a pencil behind my ear while at work. Much like Grace from Ferris Bueller, I often forget this and try to stick another one there, only to find that there is one already behind my ear. I often mistakenly try to stick my x-acto knife behind my ear too, to which I think, "Oh Christ, did I just stab myself?" VAN GOGH 4 LIFE. Er, this happens...daily.

Things that are weird #5:
My bougie Target, apparently.

Things that weird #6:
Check this rolling pin out. What do you think?


Now look at the price. WTF?? Is this thing filled with crack? Is it magic? Is it dual purpose like I can use it to kill a man? I don't get it!

Pants-free Baby was hilarious, especially when he came out and everyone started "whoo-hoooooo"-ing in unison.

I love that the rolling pin is listed by Harold Import Inc (must be why it's so pricey, it's imported!), yet it's sold and shipped by Ace Hardware.

You might want to check out the baby's daycare. Someone's been showing old porn movies during naptime...

WTF?!?! I thought the Williams-Sonoma ones were expensive!

I hadn't been keeping up with blogs and I come to yours and get soooooo many cool posts. I LOVE, love, love all your party posts.

I have to tell you that those pull-pinatas are for sissies. You know as a kid, my pinatas were the clay kind. It was a claypot decorated up. We'd hit them and they'd literally break. I think my parents hated us because they didn't care about us going through pieces of broken clay. When I saw the paper pinatas, I thought that was weird and now pinatas with strings, pssh.

Oh, pants free baby. That makes me laugh- esp. the "BOW CHICKA BOW BOW." :) That rolling pin is something. I like it in red... for 29.99. Mucho better.

Delurking to say that I also have a "pants-free baby", so I feel your pain. He's too little for the "BOW CHICKA BOW BOW" yet so I guess there's always something to look forward to. Love the random phrases from movies and songs as titles.
Just in case you wanted to see another pants-free baby:
