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.
