If you have been reading my blog for any certain amount of time, you should know by now that I blog about anything and everything and sometimes even nothing. Today’s post is just for fun!
I was looking through some old pictures for a project I am doing and I noticed multiple trips to walmart and even one to Ikea where we had maybe a little too much fun while there. Let the pictures speak for themselves…..
This last one was a fun trip to Ikea. Roomie is a major goof!
So honestly, how would you react to seeing any of these things take place? I would be thinking – peopleofwalmart.com but alas, these are MY people of Walmart so I didn’t send the photos. That’s cheating! We do have fun though!
Yes, today is a mindless silly post, but, it’s Tuesday and sometimes Tuesday can be more of a drag than Monday! Oh, and I’m tired. It’s hard to not be silly when you’re tired!
Keep reading and maybe next time I will be witty! I have something in mind! Like this post and make sure to follow us – we LOVE followers!
August 2nd has officially become our own personal holiday. We declared August 2nd to be National F**k with Roomie day.
The day started out with a demon baby hanging from the ceiling outside his bedroom door. This little cutie was there to greet him and wish him a good morning before he left for work. This beautiful baby was suspended from the ceiling to greet Roomie right at face level.
I will eat you!
For some reason Matt’s brother and another friend also decided to celebrate National F**K with roomie day. This was not actually discussed between any of us. Everyone had their own plot and agenda for the day.
The boys came over in the afternoon while roomie was away at work with multiple rolls of tin foil. Their evil deed involved covering roomie’s entire new truck in tin foil. They covered every single piece of the inside and outside of his truck! Roomie has not even been able to register the truck yet! It was so neat looking that the neighbors also stopped by to take pictures.
Now, any normal person might stop right there and think well a good morning scare and a tin foil truck is probably good enough. Any normal person would stop right there, kick up their feet to a job well done and wait for the victim to see their hard work. You however, step into the Griswold realm of reality and we do not “stop right there at a job well done”, oh no my friends!
We proceeded to spend at least the next hour filling balloon after bloody balloon (roughly 800!) with the precious air from our lungs to fill as much of roomie’s bedroom as we could. It was a team effort and was hard work. The teenager threw in her 2 cents as well with streamers o fun!
The finished product was just glorious!
To top it off, roomie had to potty in more ways than one and came home to find the fruits of our labor had completely blocked his bathroom door. He literally disappeared into a sea of balloons before emerging again unsuccessful in his mission.
Roomie will be popping balloons and unwrapping his tin foil truck for days or maybe even weeks. I expected to hear giggles every time we hear a balloon pop and maybe even when we hear the tin foil song of our leftovers.
I look forward to National F**k with roomie day of 2012. Time to start plotting now for bigger and better things!
However we must keep in mind that F**k with Krystal, Matt, Teenager and all other friends & family day has in the past and may again arise at any point without warning. Ahh Griswold life is entertaining !
He looks much happier than he actually was!

It’s not just a movie…it’s our reality.
Yup, we have a “roommate”.
He’s a guy, he pays us money, we give him a room.
He cooks in our kitchen too.
He hoards things in his room. : (
Sometimes we let him hang out with us.
He does lots of favors too. (Store runs, McDonalds, heavy lifting, spider killing….) Even though he’s deathly afraid of spiders. We have seen him run, flail about and scream like a school girl at the sight of a spider. It’s lots of fun to make him think a spider is on him !
Most people wouldn’t consider a roommate, especially when they are supposed to be in a “honeymoon” phase, but we aren’t most people and we let this family friend stick around. He will be known as “roomie” on this blog. We call him a couple other things around the house but it probably isn’t appropriate to share. It’s all in good fun, trust us! Roomie laughs and offers his own nicknames for us as well.
If you were ever a friend of the show “Friends”, you will know what we mean when we say roomie is our “Joey”…we are pretty sure he’s ours forever…as if we fed a stray dog. Roomie has earned his stay though…he has been the victim of years worth of pranks and idiocracy and has proven himself a good sport.
Do any of you have a “roomie”?
