I'm a huge McFan of McMommy!

McMommy, who is fabulous and if you do not read her blog you are totally missing out, had a fun idea to have her McFan's post fan pics similar to the one she made for Oprah when she joined the twitterverse. This has given me the motivation to go through with an idea I have had for awhile now and show you, my dear reader(s), how a blog addict such as myself views the world, which can be very different from how "normal" people view the same world.

It all started when I decided I was hungry and didn't want to go home and cook or perhaps had no time to do so because I had lab work after water aerobics and decided to hit the local Wendy's before heading back to my hermit cave rock I live under according to BFF Pasha apartment or lab. I did this somewhat frequently until one night I was totally thrown off, they had to close the road in front of the Wendy's and I REALLY wanted my kid meal and chocolate frosty with cookie dough added (I love that they will spike my frosty with the dough stuff for I think a quarter!). I was trying to figure out how I could get to the Wendy's as I passed it and observed the layout of the barricades. And then, just when I thought all hope was lost I looked ahead and saw the golden arches of a McDonalds. I had no idea it was there because I don't get out much this is on the opposite side of town from where I normally am. I got my happy meal, complete with toy for Niecey and decided that I like the McD's kid meal better than Wendy's except for the lack of the awesome frosty goodness (I hate that McD's "chocolate" shakes are really vanilla shakes with some chocolate flavor added, gross!) and so have switched over.

Another reason I enjoy going to the McDonalds is that it reminds me of two of my favorite bloggers, McMommy and HappyHourSue (her blog title is Happy Meals and Happy Hour, which you would know if you aren't her husband and read her awesome blog!). And so dearest reader(s), I present to you what I see in my mind when I am going on a happy meal run:

Welcome to McMommy's, can we take your order please?

Here is the menu for the food:
A happy meal option that is extra happy!

Here is the McCafe menu:
McMommytini anyone?

And here is what comes with the most popular meal by far at McMommy's, The Happy Hour Sue Happy Meal:
The yummy crusty browned part of the turkey stuffing.

And your very own Bathtub Gangta Mini!

So there you have it, a blog addict's view of the world. And Melisa, I remember you bringing up this question in a post at some point and this should be proof positive for you that you are not the only one that is often reminded about their bloggy friends/idols, though my being the one that is proof that it happens might not be the most reassuring as far as if it is sane or not ;).

I'm pretty sure that I am floored right now by the AWESOME-NESS OF THIS POST!!!!!!!!

My heart is all sorts of fluttering and I'm TEARY-EYED!!!

On behalf of Happy Hour Sue and myself...we just want to say....

McThank You for being so McWonderful to Us!!

HappyHourSue said...

No. freakin. WAY.

That is the awesomest (word?) post!

LMAO at "if you aren't her husband"

I am honored. How did you get BG to look like a shrink-wrapped toy?????

McMommy: You are very McWelcome, I totally enjoy your blog and I always think that McD's should change their name ;). You rock, glad you liked this post, thanks!

HappyHourSue: Thank you, glad you liked it =)! I used a filter in adobe, appropriately named "plastic wrap".

WeaselMomma said...

That was great! Totally worth the effort you put in.

The Microblogologist said...

Thanks WeaselMomma =)! It actually came together pretty easy, I spent more time searching for the right pics to steal than manipulating them I think. The n in the original was used to make 4 letters in the manipulated sign. The others it was more about the font size and shape and trying to make it look like part of the picture and be readable at the same time. Oh and I am fairly certain that McMommy's has Coors Light in stock, maybe in tiny bottles like the milk for the happy meals...

Pssst...hey. My comment isn't really about this post (although this post is very funny), but it's in response to your comment on my comment on Waltz in Exile's last post. (Heh. You got that?) I wanted to e-mail you, but couldn't find your e-mail so instead...sneak attack!

RE pro-gay marriage being a truly conservative position: I know! I totally agree! Trust me, we are on the same page here, which is why the spittle-laden Angry Conservatives (not to be confused with actual conservatives who base their beliefs on sound, consistent principles) tick me off so much.

Sorry to hijack your post, but I have an allergy to being misunderstood. If I didn't contact you somehow, I'd be up all freakin' night worrying that you thought I was picking on you.

Okay! *clapclap* As you McWere!

The Microblogologist said...

AliasMother: I believe you and I may have the same allergy! It is hereditary I think, my mom freaks whenever she is misunderstood, real or imagined. I wasn't really angry nor offended, just a little defensive because it gets tiring being represented by the crazies and therefore lumped into the same group (not to say I'm not crazy, just not that flavor of crazy). Just wanted to point out we're not all crazy nutjobs! Almost missed my attention, you commented BEFORE me, I'm not allowed to feel personally picked on, not that I did ;).

You know it would be fun to grab the craziest from both sides and throw them together in a small house or something and let them have at it, that is a reality tv show I'd be willing to watch... If they didn't kill each other maybe they, and the viewers, would learn something, lol.

McFantastic use of photoshop! i thought sibling was the artsy freak not you! lol very funny and very well done!

The Microblogologist said...

Why thank you Nonna =). Sibling is definitely the artsy freak, she comes up with stuff on her own and everything. I am a photomanipulator, which is a form of artsy but to me not as artsy. Before I was way better than Sibling, I think she is getting to the point of perhaps surpassing me now though, she made that cat/dog/rabbit thing which is way beyond my capabilities. Glad you enjoyed the post =)!
