Yahoo! Q&A thinks I'm an Idiot. The Neighbors' Magical Night.

Hola!

So before I show you why Yahoo! thinks I'm an idiot, let me give you some background....

Last Wednesday was my birthday, and Mike surprised me by arranging for my best friend to come visit from out of town to surprise me. Once she was in town, she and Mike went and bought a ton of helium-filled balloons and some streamers to decorate the living room. Obviously one of my first thoughts upon walking into the living room full of balloons was, I can't wait to suck all that helium and sing ridiculous songs.

Because we are incredibly cautious and like to do our research, though, we turned to google for an answer to the ever important question:
And here's what Yahoo! Answers had to say.


"What a stupid question.

Who in their right mind would do that to their unborn child?

Source(s):

Common sense."

... apparently I was absent when they handed that stuff out. In other news, there's a giveaway here and another one three here. In other other news... I have a spiffy new blog of the month, and she's hilarious. I haven't ever lied to you before, so just trust me on this one. If you don't believe me, you can read her hilarity below... or go here to read the most hilarious skunk story ever.
************************************************************************************
My name is Verity. . . it sounds like charity with a V.
Here's a few things about me:

I'm married to Jacob. I like to call him Jake, Jack, Jacob, J, J, Jay. . . all kinds of things. To me, it's pretty understandable who I'm talking about, but on more than 9 occasions, people have asked me if I feel badly talking about so many different men on my blog. When I try to explain that all these different men are really just the same, one man, they get weird and walk away. I don't know.

Another thing; like Alyx, I'm a November baby. We're clearly the best, but I'm biased.

I'm random. I feel like random stories are real glimpses of what people are like, so I love hearing about others stories! Indeed, tonight while I was in the bath, I washed my face and got a very unreasonable fear of something being in the tub with me, so I opened my eyes with soap on them, to make sure nothing was swimming with me. J did not appreciate me yelling for help with my burning eyes, but luckily they are fine now and luckily there was not something like a rat or roach swimming with me [Alyx here: ummm please tell me none of you have ever shared your bath with either of these creatures. I would scream and cry].

Also, I feel like I blog a lot about my neighbors. We live in a complex with 10 units, and they are rad. But the walls are thin. So thin that we hear many, many magical nights of our neighbors. Also, we used to knock on the wall we shared with our favorite friends. . . but now we just try to be louder than everyone at all times of the day and night. We'll open our windows and shout at 6 in the morning. We'll vacuum at midnight. I don't know. It's fun.

So that is me in a total nutshell. I never understood that saying. That is me in 3 paragraphs and a few sentences.

The end.
PS. Ending blogs is really awkward to me. [Alyx again: this is why I felt it was necessary to blog-stalk Verity and retrieve this glorious photo for your viewing pleasure. End awkward moment.]

Now go visit Verity! I promise you... you will love her.

See, I would have totally thought helium would be ok since it goes straight to your brain. This is also why I am not ready to have a child. Seriously cracks me up haha, thank you Yahoo Answers.

Michelle said...

Ha I wouldn't have known the answer either!

Breenah said...

I would think in small doses it'd be fine, it mostly just tightens your vocal chords. I guess it's not something I think about every day. Rude Yahoo people.

Love this post. I vacuum at night too! And I totally understand how hard it is to end a blog post!

Lauren said...

Gotta love Yahoo! answers! LOL

I would have googled... I mean come on..

Loved the guest post!!

RadiantKristen said...

Uhhhhhh, I don't actually think Helium can hurt a baby. It's an inert gas. But better safe than sorry with the little creature!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

I totally would have thought helium would be okay. How rude!

Alana Christine said...

bahahahaha. Good ole google...such a good source of knowledge. lol

Whitney said...

Love the guest post! And how funny about the helium. Maybe if you wait until right before you are going to give birth and do it, your baby will come out with a helium cry? Just a thought. A hilarious one.

Mgmt., The Park Ave. Pub said...

That is hilarious about the helium. I'm no doctor, but I thought that would be okay. Maybe the answer wasn't talking about the gas, but the high-pitched voice scaring the baby or something? ;)

cynthia said...

hmm...so can you suck helium?? ;)

Verity seems pretty funny, clicking over to check her out. :)

Emily S said...

I think you will surprise yourself with how much you will google. I'm on round two of kids, and week 2 of kid illnesses. I call nurses, I google. That's what I do.

Elsha Bodily said...

I've seriously been sitting here for several minutes trying to think how I missed out on that "commen sense" as well and trying to determine why not? That is obviously why I am not with child....because natural selection is a heartless slut :) Love you and your craziness!

ruthy ann said...

so wait...did you inhale or not? :)

Shaylynn, They Let Me Blog. said...

I absolutely approve of this girl. She's funny, no? Totally.

Girl. You husband surprised you so well. Oh how I LOVE your surprise.

Rosie said...

I am going over to check out this blog. She had me at 'random' and won me completely over at awkward!

Anna said...

ha, nice alyx! :) remind me never to post random pictures of myself, because you obviously will seek them out. :)

Deidre said...

I feel like that was a perfectly reasonable thing to ask the internet. Maybe just ask twitter next time?

Kylie said...

Pretty much you wanna avoid chemicals, etc. But don't worry, I totally spray-painted something in my first trimester (outside, well ventilated) and my kid seems fine so far! :P

Also, I feel like I should win a medal or something for introducing you to Verity ;) Just kidding, but I do feel sorta special...

Kaylee Gwyn said...

Absolutely adore her!!! Cannot wait to meet her.

P.S. Who would dot hat to their unborn child? Me, because I love them so much and want them to enjoy life's little "funs" before they are even here. That's who!!!

Liz Brown said...

So ... did you do it, or didn't you??

Sara Louise said...

I would have googled it too :)

Georgina Castellucci said...

No one would have known this and what a HARSH response! Geez :)

rooth said...

Uhh, I totally didn't know that either. Must have missed that day in health class

Hello every body....

my family and i live together live in USA. It was after seven years i got to discover that my Husband was unfaithful to me. I didn't know what was going on at first but as he got deep in the affair with his new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks. I notice that he no longer light up when i touch him or kiss him in his neck and his chest cos he really liked it when i did that, he also usually get naked in front of me but when he started seeing that woman he stopped it. I remember asking him if i have done anything that makes him feel irritated when i am around him then he gives silly excuses that he has been feeling stressed up and that he need space for a while. I know when you are been asked for space its usually because there is something fishy going on. I hired a private investigator to help find out what was going on. And in a week time he brought me prove that my Husband that i have lived with for seven straight year is cheating on me with his high school lover. I had picture of him walking out a of a restaurant with her and many other photo of them kissing in public like he will never be caught by someone that knows he is my Husband. I asked myself, even when we had a daughter together he could do this to me. That same night i showed him the pictures that i got from my private investigator. He didn't look at it before saying, that he is seeing someone and he know that i just found out about it. Then he said that he is in love with her. At that moment, i didn't know if to kill myself or to kill him but the button line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be me because i was so much in love with him to even think of thinking to hurt him. As time goes on he asked for a divorce and got it and i got custody of our daughter and i weep everyday seeing my daughter with out being around her daddy. I just couldn't get my mind off my Husband and all i could think about was getting him back and live as every family should. For a year i tried all i could to get him back with the help of my seven year old daughter. Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of his friend but turned out all bad. I know most people don't believe in spell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i most say was impressive. And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL CASTER Dr iayaryi really made my life much better because he gave me my family back. He didn't ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was to do, was to provide the materials for the spell and i should believe that he had the power to help me. Like he said, he was going to do something that will make him reset his love and affection for me just as it has always been. My Husband told me he woke up and realized that he should have never left me that i am all he needs.To make thing clear, his life with his high school lover was great before Dr iayaryi cast the spell, they had no disagreement on anything. My Husband said it himself that why he broke up with her is something he can not explain just that he woke up on the same bed with her after a very romantic night saying he is breaking up with her for no reason at all. Only Dr iayaryi can do such a thing, contact him to solve your problem with his email driayaryi2012@hotmail.com And also Reach him on WhatsApp Number: +2349057915709 Thanks Dr. IyaryI
