I Write Like...

Just kidding! This Squirrel Moment is brought to you by Gas Pedal. They provide many a Squirrel Moment for me at the end of some of their newsletters. Their newsletter, Damn, I Wish I’d Thought of That!, provides great ideas for word of mouth marketing. Very handy!

So Squirrel with me this: I Write Like will tell you which famous person you write like. Per their instructions:

Check which famous writer you write like with this statistical analysis tool, which analyzes your word choice and writing style and compares them with those of the famous writers.

Any text in English will do: your latest blog post, journal entry, comment, chapter of your unfinished book, etc. For reliable results paste at least a few paragraphs (not tweets).

How cool is that? You know what else is cool? According to I Write Like, I write in the style of Stephenie Meyer and Stephen King.

Who do you write like?

The Squirrel My Squirrel Could Smell Like

The Old Spice Guy

The day before yesterday, I discovered that the Old Spice Guy is on Twitter, tweeting his answers to twitter and facebook fans in videos. First of all, it’s absolutely brilliant! As a business woman, I love to see how other companies reinvent themselves, especially when it works. Second, the Old Spice Guy is awesome! I could watch his videos all day, and not just because of the obvious. The videos are hysterical! I’ve spent many hours just laughing at all the answers he would send out to his followers. Because of all the time spent watching Old Spice videos, the Old Spice guy is definitely on my Squirrel Moment list. Believe me, you will be hooked!

My only question: Will the Old Spice guy come out with a ringtone of himself saying something witty for us women to have on our phones? I imagine something like: “Your phone is ringing. The man you wish smelled like me is calling and would like you to answer your phone. He may have something important to tell you. He may need you to pick up bacon at the store. Or, he may just want to profess his undying love for you. If you don’t answer, a parallel universe could collide with our own and all life as we know it would be obliterated, including the message he was forced to leave because you wouldn’t answer. We wouldn’t want that, now would we? So answer the phone and the universe will be just fine.” I’m sure the Old Spice guy could come up with something better… ;)

Thanks to @ResourcefulMom I can’t stop coughing. I still have crud in my chest and every time I laugh, it starts another coughing fit. Trust me on this one…it’s totally worth the squirrel! Go check out Catalog Living and see what I mean. CAUTION: Make sure you aren’t eating or drinking anything when you view this site.

Schtuff My Kids Ruined

I spent quite a bit of time on S*** My Kids Ruined just laughing and lamenting, but mostly relating to the destruction. It is nice to know that I’m not the only one to suffer destruction at the hands of my kids. And you get to submit your photos too. It’s therapy and birth control all in one!

Breakfast doesn’t get any better!

This is the kind of breakfast I want! At Jim’s Pancakes, Jim makes pancakes for his 3 year old daughter Allison and then shares his creations with us. I am amazed at the Crane and the Ferris Wheel. You have to have a squirrel moment and go visit Jim’s Pancakes. I wonder if he can make a Dapper Snapper pancake….

I saw these guys on the Today Show with Hoda and Kathy Lee a while back and checked out their website. I was rolling! Waste a little time checking out these awesome Awkward Family Photos. Maybe you have one you want to submit?

Introducing… Squirrel!

Welcome to my Squirrel! category. Remember the scenes from UP! where the dogs kept getting distracted thinking they heard a squirrel? Well, that happens to me often…not thinking I hear squirrels, but getting distracted. So, I had to have a category so I could share all the wonderful distractions I happen upon with you and then you can be distracted too and then I don’t have to feel guilty about wasting time surfing the web. See how I am?
