Excuse me while I panic

Ack! Listen To Your Mother is on Thursday and, aside from crippling stage fright and a few bouts of nervous vomiting, I have one main problem - I don't know what to wear. Part of the problem is that I've been sitting on my butt working from home for two years, so none of my old work clothes (read: clothes I can reasonably expect to be appropriate for public viewing) fit me anymore. The other part of my problem is that I've been too lazy busy for laundry lately.

While I go try on everything I own and see how many pant sizes I can lose by doing jumping jacks from now until Thursday, why don't you go ahead and link up? Oh wait, I forgot to mention... it's Finding the Funny time!

Welcome to May's Finding the Funny!

Meet the Hosts

Anna @ My Life and Kids

Kelley @ Kelley's Break Room

The Rules

Link up an old or new funny post. Link up as many times as you want (we're serious.)

The party is open until Friday at midnight. The earlier you link up, the more clicks you'll get.

Click around and meet the other funny bloggers that are linking up.

Follow the Finding the Funny Pinterest board. We'll all be pinning our favorites throughout the month.

We don't ask you to link back to us or include a button on your blog, but we do ask you to send out a tweet or post about the party on your Facebook page. Be sure to use #findingthefunny.

I hope you enjoyed yourself while you were here - and I hope you come back! Please share inappropriate giggles with me on Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook, or subscribe via email so you don't miss a thing!

I have been dealing with the same wardrobe issues, and have relied on a scarf to save my butt every time I've needed to make myself presentable (which was maybe twice). Good luck!

Holy Crap! Allie Brosh linked up. Granted it's an oldie (but goodie) that I had already read from 2010, but still...she's still around!
Make sure to give us a pic of your smashing get up.... :)

Scarves fix everything. I really feel like they give the afterthought, "Maybe she DID try to look nice."

you can never go wrong with a nice wrap dress.

good luck!

I'd be reacting the same way. My entire digestive system would be out of whack. The only "nice" clothes I have anymore would be what I consider my "wedding outfit" - what I've worn to every wedding since 2008. Of course, it's obviously outdated as well. Glad it's not me and totally wish it was at the same time. Good luck!

I am excited for you! I'm from Indiana and I'm sure you'll do the hoosiers proud! Love the venn diagram, the teacher in me is so pleased. But as far as your closet conundrum, I would totally use this as your excuse to go shopping! You are so lucky! Good luck on this, you'll be awesome!

So I take it that this is a clothes required speaking engagement? Those are the worst.

RobynHTV said...

A scarf might be the way to go - plus, speaking of saving butts, it would be nice to have something to cover mine. You think I could wear it around my hips?

RobynHTV said...

Amazing! Surely someone linked up on her behalf... But no, forget I said that, I'm going to stay here in my make-believe world where her having heard of FtF is possible. ;)

I'll have to remember to ask someone to take a pic! I'm always the one with the camera, so there are approximately no photos of me anywhere.

RobynHTV said...

Good point! I suck at accessorizing - maybe starting with scarves would be easier than jewelry. :)

RobynHTV said...

I would totally agree with you - those are SO cute - except I have to sit on stage the whole time. On a tall stool. That's just a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.

RobynHTV said...

"every wedding since 2008" - I love that! I'm in the same boat there, except no one's gotten married for a while, so the wedding guest clothes are too small. ;)

RobynHTV said...

Venn diagrams are my favorite. Thanks for the encouragement - and the Hoosier support! :D

RobynHTV said...

Believe me, if I'd known that when I auditioned... well, I probably wouldn't have made the cast.

BadParentingMoments said...

I bet you looked lovely and anyone who says they don't have a remaining maternity shirt, skirt, bra, pair of pants, shorts and unitard actively hanging in their closet is a dirty, rotten liar.

RobynHTV said...

Agreed! Thanks for the backup - at BlogHer, I'm totally carrying your adorable self around in the waistband of my maternity capris, which are still in hard rotation.
