Wordful Boot Camp Wednesday

In case you are a pop culture reject happen to not recognize the cadence of the lyrics, this is the popular parody song, "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh", originally recorded by Allan Sherman in the '60s.

Well, WELL before my time, but still, I know my comedy people.

This is my Blaxican take on the song for Bloggy Boot Camp.

Sing along. It works better that way!

Hola Mami.

Hola Papi.

Here I am at,

Boot Camp Bloggy.

It is very entertaining,

Tiffany says that we’ll get some blogging training!

I saw Fran.


She’s a hotty.

Laughed so hard I,

had to potty.

And Mama K,


she’s a winner.

Next time I will make her take me out to dinner.

All the ladies,

looked so pretty.


Had me feeling,

kinda sh$&ty.

And look at Jenny,


she’s so skinny.*

Made me want to drink a tumbler full of Remy.

Now I don’t want,

this to scare ya.


Psycho-mask girl,

isn’t scary.

She is nice.

Her name is Sunday.

bloggybootcamp4Wanna be cool like her, oh well, maybe one day.

I am home now,

Mami, Papi.

But I’m goin’ back.

Try to stop me.

Maybe Philly,

is where I’ll soon be.

And I’m coming for the people who ignored me!

And by ignored I mean didn’t ensure that I knew who they were so that I could profess my love for them in true Dumb Mom fashion.

It's no fun to shamelessly stalk people if you don't get to show your crazy to them in person.

And, they stalk me! Not the other way around.


I don't creep around on Shell's blog and get all jealous that she's stealing one of my OG blogging besties. Nor do I go over to Mary's and wish I could have have a fancy schmansy blog design and a bloggy sister too (since BFF has lost her blogging mojo a bit lately)!

Nope. They do that stuff to me.

Totally swear.

Anyway. Point is, next time you will not get off so easily!

You are gonna have a sit down with Dumb Mom.

So gonna hump your leg.

*For the record, Fran is skinny too, but since she's preggers I figured I wouldn't mention. She wouldn't believe me anyway, because pregnant chicks never believe you when you say that, plus I hate that my tummy is currently larger than hers and I don't want to focus on that tidbit too much.

Sounds like you had a rockin time! Love the pictures and the ditty, very nicely done!

Muthering Heights said...

LOLOL, I love the creativity in this post. Sooooooooooooo funny!!!!

AndreaLeigh said...

It looks like a blast! Wish I could have attended!

Stopping by from SITS to say hello. Happy Wednesday!

Erin said...

Looks like a ton of fun! Wish I could go!

And you look just as fantastic!!

Heather said...

it looks like so much fun, how cool to meet everyone like that!

Cecily R said...

Looks and sounds like you had a GRAND time. Love the song (now the tune will be stuck in my head for days) and the pics!!

Rebecca said...

Thanks sooooooo much for getting that song stuck in my head! I can't believe I wasn't there...I mean, I freaking live in Baltimore! Oh well...maybe next year! I would love to meet some of my fellow bloggers!

Anonymous said...

So glad I'm not the only one who remakes popular songs into my own words. I am constantly amusing my children with my personal renditions of their favorite songs! I am so glad you had such a wonderful time!

blueviolet said...

I might do Philly....I might!

Geezees Custom Canvas Art said...

Love your pics!
Everyone looked so good.

Shell said...

See, I totally should have insisted on getting a pic taken with you and even though at the time you would hav been like who is this crazy stalker chick? You could have laughed about it later, and told people that you only thought I was a stalker, but it was really okay. You just didn't know who I was. Waaaaahhhhh!

Oh and Fran? She's so skinny, I didn't even know she was pregnant.

Jennifer said...

haha! Love the lyrics and the photos!

Philly? That's my neck of the woods! But... as evidenced by your quiz, I'm a loser and not a real blogger.. haha! So, I'll wave at Philly from NJ and just be a wannabe and stalk you.

4 Lettre Words said...

Ahhh...what fun!!

The Mommyologist said...

Ok, so now that I've seen your picture I totally know who you are. I was even OUT ON THE BALCONY taking my own photo when you were out there with Mama Kat!!! I cannot believe I missed you!

Lolli said...

What a creative recap. Leave it to you. Makes my post look super boring. Plus, I didn't take very many pictures. What's up with that??

Jennifer said...

You astound me. I can't even imagine the mental faculties you must have had before children (because I'm totally sticking with the fact that we lose at least half of those).

And if you got to Baltimore AND Philly and then don't come to Austin, I will just cry. And I mean it. I really will. Just sit down and cry.

Looks like you had a great time and I thought you looked Fabulous in of those pix!!

parentingBYdummies said...

PD8: I'm a whiz with Photoshop I swear it:)

Sunday said...

Naaah, I'm not scary at all.
Even though I think my mask looked waaaay better than me in real life.

I absolutely loved your song and poetry. You have mad skillz girl!

I'll be your bloggy sister! :-D

Brandi said...

I totally loved meeting you! And your right about Fran. I couldn't believe she was 4 months! She was barely showing with the teeniest little bump. Glowing none the less. Can't wait for Philly!

Scary Mommy said...

You are so damn cute. And creative. And utterly awesome. YOU put us to shame!!! xox

LoveFeast Table said...

Why didn't I think of that?!! You are creative...keep these posts a comin'!

CaraBee said...

Too funny! I'm so bummed that we didn't get a chance to meet. I thought I talked to a lot of people, but there are SO many that I missed. Maybe Philly...

Kmama said...

I loved this!! Again, lady, you are soooo creative!

Mayhem and Moxie said...

I do believe that the picture of us together is the BEST one ever taken of blog conference attendees in the history of blog conferences. We are so freaking adorable.

Seriously, if I wasn't married, I'd want to date you. I LOVE US!!!

The next time you are at a conference, you must let me know. I will fly just about anywhere to sit HP to HP with you again.


Kekibird said...

Now I can see where your boys get their gorgeous looks from! You are one hot mama!

Jennifer G. said...

Yes, her pregnant tummy was ity bitty. And I should hate her for it. Remind me of that next time I am all smiley around her. Gah!

In the mean time - let's toast to YOUR honor at Momz Share, shall we?

Julie said...

Love your recap! How much fun... can't wait until my bloggy boot camp experience!

Looks like you had a fab time with some fab people!


Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

Awesome, awesome recap! I'm still working on mine so it is clear that you are more on the ball than me.

Malinda said...

Cute post. I liked it.

Found you on MBC and thought I'd follow. Can't wait to read more.

Mel's Box of Chocolates said...

This absolutely kicks all other recaps post butt. Now I can't get the darn song out of my head. I am kicking myself for not coming and talking to you. You were looking cute yourself in your little dress and adorable boots. I am going to Philly and we WILL meet. Until then I'll be stalking you!! Thanks again for the super fun post!!!

Cheryl said...

I don't even know these people and I still laughed. Do you take requests? Like, could i give you a tune, a topic and just say "GO!" Maybe it could be a little side job for you, with all your spare time.. ;)

DiPaola Momma said...

If this hadn't been so freakin' funny I so would have cried my poor little eyes out for being left out, Farrah Faucet style, in this little ode to the cool chicks.

Just remember I'll be in your neighborhood this weekend so if you happen to find a flaming bag on your front porch... POOH on YOU.. :0)

Megan said...

A hilarious boot camp summary - I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you there!
