Tova's Totally Awkward Tuesdays

Since I'm beginning the moving process RIGHT NOW (no, seriously, I am loading a truck while you are reading this sentence. We will actually drive it to the new city tomorrow), Totally Awkward Tuesday is still on semi-hiatus.

For those of you who are new here, Tova's Totally Awkward Tuesdays is a Meme I invented ("invented" makes it sound more creative than "randomly thought up when I was bored.") Being awkward is something that I'm very good at, so I decided to share the awkwardness. You can read some of my mortifyingly awkward moments by clicking here. What typically happens on Totally Awkward Tuesdays is that I share an awkward story about something that happened to me, and then all of my lovely readers share an awkward story on their blogs, link to my blog from theirs, and then post a link to their own blogs in the Mr. Linky widget that typically appears below.

But since I'm moving and Mr. Linky isn't working, this week I decided to mix things up, and instead of sharing an awkward story, I am linking to an extremely awkward (and therefore fantastic) blog. It is AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com, and it will make you laugh for at least half an hour. One of the ones that made me laugh the hardest was this one, in which a family has inexplicably gone to a portrait studio to have a picture taken of themselves dressed as Winnie the Pooh characters. I made the unfortunate decision to show it to Mr. Darling. My intent in showing it to him was to laugh at these poor people. Of course, he immediately thought it would be hilarious to do the exact same thing to use as a Christmas card photo when we have a baby some day. I am totally unwilling to utterly humiliate myself for the sake of a few laughs, so hopefully Mr. D will have forgotten about this by the time we decide to have kids.


If you'd like to participate in Totally Awkward Tuesdays despite the lack of a Mr. Linky widget, just blog about an awkward incident, link to my blog from yours, then post a link to your awkward entry in the comments section of my blog. Make sure to visit the blogs of your fellow awkward bloggers so that we can all have a good laugh.

I WIN! :)

I love that site, and I know exactly the picture you're talking about. The kicker is they're all sooooo happy ... lord have mercy.

And I bust out quite the awkward this week:

Just for you, Tova, just for you and your Blog of Note. ;)

Hope the move is going well!

Well... I hope you had a decent time shifting... it was easy on me... I wasn't there when it happened =P

And as much as I'd love to share a Totally Awkward Tuesday post (believe me, there are LOADS of those), it would seem unfair to start my new blog with one of my better left forgotten moments.

Anyway, I'm new to your blog... Read through pretty much the whole thing and I loved it (Yes, all the post... I couldn't resist) ! You're writing style is sweet... =)

Cheers

Dahrling… i cracked up on the censored guy on the beach and can’t keep the Pooh family off me thoughts it seemed like mama Pooh was forced into the suit, she had this grimace.
awkward...

on my Tuesday awkwardness, i was in my room reading thru all sorts of stuff and i was bored well this idle mind gets ideas from anyplace--so i typed in flikker.com hoping to view new photo creative enough to inspire me … imagine me sitting on the couch then i noticed i should have typed flicker.com in the address box.

Guess what my brother just came in and sat beside me to look over what i was doing…

!!!!! lo and behold a wang pops on the screen flikker was an escort site in the Netherlands. i froze and my brother was embarrassed with what he saw and left me stunned.

Awkward…

My blog is anonymous too [but my name is Maria - a very common name here in Portugal, so I'm safe] because I wanted to be really free to write what I feel. I'm starting to read your blog from the 1st post. I'm enjoying it a lot ^-^

www.brklln.blogspot.com Mine is more a foot in mouth story but I've got to work my way into the awkwardness.

My Year Without said...

You are hilarious.

I can't wait to read more of your stories, opinions and profile. That is so crazy that your Ma-in-Law fudged with you and your last blog. I love that you took matters into your own hands and are going anonymous. That rocks.

Jasmine said...

Just found your blog. Love it. Funny story about your mother-in-law because I too have been thinking about starting another anonymous blog because of my mother-in-law is paranoid that somehow people will find me and hence find my husband who is also an ex-medical student, now doctor.

That Winnie the Pooh picture is a divorce predictor. I hate to say that, but jeez the dad and baby are laughing like it's the best day of their lives, but Mom is thinking something else entirely... If only we knew what she was thinking. Oh My god that pic is terrible.
