LOL moments. By which I mean I need them. And you get free books.

Thursday, March 17, 2011

I blog over at Teen Fiction Cafe, and this week, I'm supposed to write about LOL moments. The only problem is, as some of you know, I haven't had many lately, unless you count the fact that I've had so much blood drawn in an effort to figure out exactly what's wrong with me that I know every single lab tech in the hospital where my doctor is and I always do a fist pump when I'm told I'm having less than eight vials of blood drawn and may actually say "YAY!" when it's four or less.

Okay, I actually do say YAY! You guys know how I am.

Anyway, so I was thinking, how about *your* LOL moments?

Share your fave LOL moment here with me by Monday, March 21st, leave a way for me to contact you (and have a US mailing addy) and I'll pick my favorite ten moments of yours--and then send each of those ten people a free YA novel. (And let me tell you, I've got some great ones to send out!)

And yes, the e-galley of Between Here and Forever is still available, and you can get it here: http://www.galleygrab.com/?asset_url=9781442411784

I hope you get to the bottom of your medical problems soon!

Here's a recent LOL moment in our house: Daughter (8), hubby, and I were eating dinner and Daughter was attempting to cut whatever it was (ravioli, maybe?) using just the knife. I said it might be easier if she held the fork, too. She picked up the fork in her right hand (she's a lefty), held it in the air, and proceeded trying to cut with just the knife.

I don't know, maybe it's one of those "you had to be there" things. We laughed, though.

My supervisor and I are trying to give up desserts and junk sweets (power in numbers!). We're trying to find helpful hints to get us past that afternoon drag when all you want is to stuff yourself with cake and candy.

Yesterday, she peeked into my cubicle and said "Do you like dates?" I replied, "Depends on what you have planned!"

She meant, of course, date-dates, which are apparently really sweet and might help our cravings. But I was pleased that for once I thought of a retort on the spot, instead of 5 hours later.

I have LOL moments all the time. I am pretty much a walking talking LOL moment. One sorta recent one that still makes me smile anytime I think about it is about my current boyfriend.

I met a guy through a dating website, he's local, and we decided to meet for coffee. We sat there for two hours talking, and started to discuss our shared high school (he's three years younger than me, but we know a lot of the same people). I mentioned one of my friends, and the guy said that he was good friends with my friend's younger brother.

I told the guy to go ahead and ask the younger brother about me, and told him to ask about Katie (I go by Kat now) W-insert full last name here. The guy I was with looked at me really big eyed, and was like "holy cow! Katie! It's me, Brandon!" Turns out I was on a date with someone whom I'd been friends with as a teenager.

It's now a running joke between us.

This is one the funniest things that ever happened to me...

My boyfriend Chris took me out to our favourite restaurant for my birthday. It was a busy night and the restaurant was packed! Unbeknownst to me, Chris had arranged a birthday surprise but unfortunately, the waiter got the timing wrong. Chris had just gone to find the bathroom when the cheesy happy birthday music started and I was presented with a small desert with a candle.

The entire restaurant turned to look at me sitting all on my own. I even heard a “awww, she’s all on her own”. I had to address the entire restaurant by saying “No, it’s ok, he’s just gone to the bathroom”. When Chris came back, the waiter realised what had happened and apologised profusely. He took my desert away and then proceeded to play the music AGAIN. Thankfully I got my desert back but I died of embarrassment. Not once but twice that night.

Thanks for the contest Elizabeth and I hope you're feeling better soon!

I am blessed with 3 amazingly amusing kids, so I get LOL moments every day. Today (so far) would have to be a paper my son brought home from school from President's Day which said, "If I were president I would be important, and I would do work, and I would eat an apple.

I teach preschool and I was doing a cutting project with a few 3-year-olds at a rectangular table. While helping the child to my left, the one on my right kept poking me in the back. Wanting to teach a little patience, I said several times, "You need to wait, Baylee, I'm helping another friend right now."

Turns out she wasn't poking me. She was cutting my hair. :( (although I do laugh now, over a year later)

I have 2, both involve my daughter now 7.

When she was 2...
I was walking down the hallway and passed the kitchen. I noticed she was curled up on the floor holding her knees, wearing just her diaper. I asked if she was alright. She said with a shaky voice, "Clothes make me nervous."

2nd... Kayleigh was about 5. I was listening to music on my IPod. She asked to listen. She started bopping to the music. When the song was over, I told her that was a song by the Monkees. She replied, "That was good, but do you have anything by the Animals?"

As someone who has been to 6 different doctors and had multiple tests run in the last 2 months, I totally understand where you are coming from. I hope they figure out what's going on.

I really hope your medical problems get figured out soon. I've been keeping you in my thoughts!

As for my LOL moment:

I'm relatively short (5'2"), so I really hate crowds of people because I can never see over them! Well, I went to a concert last year and, of course, I had giants standing in front of me. My boyfriend suggested I stand on the seat, and even though I felt foolish getting up there, I did. Shortly after, I heard a voice behind me. I turned around and saw a really tall, lanky guy. He said, "Could you please not stand on the seat? I can't see." I responded, "Sorry, I couldn't see." But I stepped down anyway. As soon as he saw how short I was, he said, "Oh... Sorry, sweetie. I didn't realize you were that short. You go ahead and get back up on the seat." Next time I go to a concert I should probably get some shoes with lifts! :P

Thanks for the contest!

My BFF still gives me crap about my (now) lol moment. At the time I was crushing on this kid in my Honors Spanish Class whose spanish name was Memo. When I had an english test the same day I answered everything quickly since it was so easy. Only to find out a week later that i ahd got one question wrong. When I flipped to that page I saw I had written down Memo instead of Marlowe( Percy Shelley's pen name).I told my friend and she still laughs at me! Thats what I get for crushing to hard!

Where do we start with me? I have a lot of them. I'm completely clumsy.

I go to my neurologist once a month to get trigger point injections to help reduce my migraines. During one of these injections appointments, he had to inject both of my temples.

When the needle went into my temple, the area around the shot site snapped and crackled like Rice Krispies in milk. It made a tiny popping noise after he injected the local anesthetic. My immediate reaction was to start laughing hysterically. I had no idea whether I was laughing so hard because it felt and sounded so funny or I was laughing because it hurt so much!

My neurologist stood there, needle in the air, completely dumbfounded. He had absolutely no idea what to do as he had never seen me like this; he had only seen the very quiet Autistic version. He looked over at my mom and asked, "Is she laughing or crying?"

My mom--who had been trying so hard not to laugh--responds, "She's laughing."

It took me about ten minutes to stop laughing. Then I'd start all over whenever my head snapped, crackled or popped. This happened quite frequently at that appointment so my appointment ran quite over.

I just had a great one tonight, my mom gave my little brother one of those toys that poops jelly beans (it was a chicken) and he goes, with a straight face "how do the eggs get out of the chicken's butt?" He's 5. xD

I just watched the original Excorsist and couldnt sleep. So my mom told me to sleep in my brother's room (he had an extra bed). So I went to sleep in there and finally feel asleep thinking if the excorsist tries to get me my brother would be able to take her down. I had a dream full of demons and woke up screaming. My mother runs into my brother's room to find that both me and my brother were screaming. She yells at him and asks him and comforts me. When I'm calm I ask my brother why he was yelling and he said that he did'nt want me to be lonely while i was yelling so he thought his yelling would make me feel better.

You probably had to be there for this but it was funny at the time.

I've had quite a few LOL moments lately, but now I'm drawing a blank. I guess I'll go back to high school..

In my government class, I sat next to the biggest "bully." Pretty much, she was the girl that we all made sure to stay on her good side or else fear her wrath. As we were all preparing to leave one day, I put of my jacket--and accidentally punched her in the face! To the point where her glasses were hanging crookedly on her face.

Of course, I apologized about a billion times and held my breath. The girl just straightened her glases and nodded. I was safe to live another day, but my classmates kept secretly patting me on the back--telling me good work. As if I did it on purpose!

This just happened yesterday...OH MY...

I was super sleepy at church and fell asleep during the serman. Of course, I was sleeping next to this seriously hot guy, (who was new) and I woke up with my head ON him. OH MY...I'm not totally sure, but I'm pretty sure that I was snoring. And I probably drooled on his shirt. The worst part was how when I woke up, he was watching me which probably meant that he was watching me the entire time. Mouth opened, he could probably see my tonsils or something. Great. That is *so* disgusting.

But thanks for this! And I hope you find out what's up asap. Your story wasn't so much a LOL story but an OUCH-- get well soon!
