I saw this on her blog and decided I wanted to play along.

It looked like fun.

So here is my first ever Not Me! Monday.

I did not manage to lead 55 children in song at the annual Thanksgiving program at the preschool.

Nope....not me.

One little girl certainly did not have to go potty just before we began and she certainly did not begin crying profusely.

She did not have to be taken off stage never to return.

Her mom would have been so embarrassed.

Speaking of embarrassing.

I did not see any one flash me their panties and I did not see any one pick their nose.

Especially no child of mine.

I did not see Cole turn his back to the audience so he could "pick" privately.


I did not jump for joy (in my mind) when it was over!

I did not let the praise an adoration of the parents go to my head.

I did not secretly giggle thinking if only they knew there is not a trace of musical ability in my body.


I did not think I could relax after the Thanksgiving program was over.

Nope... not me.

The director of the preschool did not sign us up to sing in a Christmas Concert for the elderly in our community.

And she did not mention it was next Wednesday.

I did not panic.

I do not have to teach the children Christmas songs and put together a program in 4 practices.

I do not need to be reminded again why I am doing this.


I have never mentioned any of my many addictions.

One of them is definitely not the Twilight series.

I did not jump up and down with excitement when I heard it was being made into a movie.

I did not purchase my tickets a week in advance so I would be assured of a seat.

I do not have addictions like that.

I did not go to see Twilight on opening night.

I was not one of the oldest people in the theater.

I am not seconds away from adding a tube of Clearasil to my bathroom cabinet.

I did not feel like a crazed tween fan when Edward came on screen.

My heart did not flutter.

And I most certainly did not want to scream out, "Marry me!"

That would have been so silly.

I did not want to watch it again.

And definitely not the same night.

I did not enjoy it at all.


I am not still preparing for my class reunion.

I did not consider not going since I never lost those 25 pounds that I needed too.

I did not have to deal with irresponsible classmates this weekend who have waited until the last possible moment to pay.

I did not have a great time last night with the reunion committee.

I did not enjoy looking through photos from the last 30 years.

I did not laugh and giggle at all our eighties hair.

I did not wish to burn some photos of my fashion sense.(or lack of)

Go on over to her blog and check out more of the Not me! Monday fun!

You are not funny at all. (hehe)

Isn't that Edward Cullen just the best & you can't marry him cause he's mine!

Krystyn said...

I love the Not Me's but I haven't ventured to do one yet!

You are funny...I'm sure you weren't the oldest.

And, have fun with the kids learning the songs.

amanda said...

hilarious friend :)

is it sad that the only reason i haven't done one of these is bc it makes my mind to do much work??

Laural Out Loud said...

This looks like fun!

You know, if I wasn't married and a young hottie like Edward (well, the actor that plays him) thought I had it going on, I would TOTALLY go for it, lol. No shame there.

Stephanie said...

What a neat post! Very fun!

I saw women of ALL ages at the movie. I loved it. Everyone is in love with the same guy. Myself included!

Kelli @ writing the waves said...

You crack me up...did you really watch that movie twice in one day???

And just so you know...I DID NOT leave you something over on my blog today.

Your link is on my blog, girl! It must have worked:) Some people's computers don't show them the far right column, so maybe you just can't see yours?

Great Not Me's!!

Julie said...

anti-supermom said...

This is so funny. I prefer not to be reminded of all those things I dind't do - man, that list would be long and blogging about it would mean that my husband would than know too

And that ain't happening :)

Jaime said...

What a fun game.

Emily said...

I did not make a special trip to a "nice" theater an hour and a half away on Saturday for Twilight accompanied by 5 of my favorite vampire lovin' girls!

I did not go and see it again last night with daughter in tow!

I also did not re-read the meadow scene again today!

lov said...

Lauren in GA said...

I never laugh at my 80's hair either. Not way. My hair wasn't that big ...and I didn't use so much hair spray that I single handedly put a hole in the ozone layer. Not way.

lizzy-loo said...

you make me laugh, NOT!

just jamie said...

I need to join in the "not me" fun. You MUST have some music dancing around inside you because it sounds to me like you're just fantastic at the preschool music gig. Bravo.

Grammy Staffy said...

I hope that you DID have a wonderful and happy thanksgiving.

Love, Grammy
