text messages from my mother

Friday, September 11, 2009

over the last two days my mom (stepho) has sent me some text messages that have caused me to laugh/snort/roll my eyes simultaneously.

and because it's friday, and no one is paying attention to the internet anyways i'm going to share them with you.

text message chain background #1: our family business is getting it's first ever website, and my mother has put me in charge of writing the whopping 5 pages of website content. easy peasy. well on wednesday she asks me this:

mom: when am i going to get my website content?

alexa: saturday, i'm going to stay home saturday night. i'll write it then.

mom: so are you coming home [to canton] then?

alexa: no. i'm going to stay in cleveland.

mom: how am i going to get the website content?

alexa: well mother, email. all the kids are doing it these days.

mom: smarty pants... don't be a pain in the ass doing it with me either.

text message chain background #2: upon reading this TMI teaser blog post from yesterday she sends me this:

mom: what the heck is TMI..and a DM...i need proper english...and why do i have to email you to get it?

alexa: sorry mom, but you can't read this one.

mom: you suck......you shouldn't have anything on the internet i can't read....not good. so what do those letters stand for anyways missy?

.....

i couldn't even respond to her, it's better just to keep her in the dark.

sorry mommy. xoxo.

also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOXXY AND COURT - i love you guys!

well that's all for now folks, have a good weekend, and GO BROWNS.


p.s. will i be seeing you tailgating on sunday? all the cool kids are doing it.

  1. Thanks, Alexa! As my brother put it, I'm going to "party" but not so much as to "make people think I hate America".

    Happy Birthday, Foxxy!

  2. Your Mom is amazing. And hilarious.

    My Mom was asking me who is that Marissa Miller I am always obsessing over. That was awkward.

    No tailgating this weekend but thinking about the Browns / Bengals weekend. Let me know if you are interested.

  3. Love your mother! The snark apple doesn't fall far from the tree, right? (I mean that affectionately.)

    When will she be ready to learn LMFAO and Let Me Google That For You http://lmgtfy.com?

  5. Your mother is gold. Funny that she calls you "missy." Of course, my mother calls me "fucknuts," so...

    Happy birthday to the birthday people.

    Go Colts!

  7. "you shouldn't have anything on the internet i can't read". I am 99% sure that exact sentence has come out of my mom's mouth.

  8. I love that your mom WANTS to read it. Let's just hope she doesn't google it to find out.

    I'll look for you Sunday if I go.

  9. What's funny about that is all she had to do was lick on TMI and it took her to urban dictionary! oh mommy! you're so funny..

  11. My mom doesn't text but she DOES have a joint Twitter account with my Dad just so they can @ me every now and then. It's usually something like:

    @bboudreau Mom and Dad say hello and they love you very much!

  12. I love the texts. I have some similar ones from my mother. Classic.

  13. LOL My brother recently announced his discovery of Wikipedia. He said, "It's incredible, like a whole other world! I just go there every day and look up something new and its like...there!" Makes me wonder if he knows what TMI is.

  14. Hahahaha! Moms are the best I tell you. The best!

  15. Well, I am glad you all got a chuckle at my expense. Boy Alexa, I have to be careful with EVERY little thing now with you. Not only do you put me on your blog but now you put it on FB(Facebook...ha)too for my friends to see (grape stuffing). I am glad I could give you some material. And by the way I did click on TMI right after I texted you and found out what it stands for.....I should have known that one...ha.

  17. My parents are fairly technology-illiterate... I think it's better that way.

  18. I kind of love your mom. This is exactly the sort of thing I would get from my mom.

    And I have a soft spot for your Browns, so I will be rooting for them when they're not playing my teams.

  19. Any mom that would say "You suck" is a keeper! :)

  20. I rue the day my mom learns how to text.

  21. I like your mom, and not in a creepy kind of way. The Browns, not so much.

    Go Colts!

  22. My mom just learned how to text. FML. Yesterday she texts me "what does IDFK mean?"

    Great.

    Also? The hourly "hi"'s have got.to.stop.

  23. I love the fact your mum wanted the link to your TMI post so much! And it's probably a good thing you didn't share it, lol!!!!

  24. My mother abbreviates EVERYTHING via text and email. To the point where you are like that can't even stand for anything. It just doesn't make sense and drives me insane!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ha ha ha. My mother doesn't know how to do much on the internet and for that I'm thankful.

    ReplyDelete
  26. yeah i'm pretty sure my mom has no idea what TMI or DM means either, your mom is not alone there, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the fact that she thought she you had to come home to read the web content.

  29. Your mother is awesome!

    A few weeks ago my mom approached me and said, "Hey, I did NOT like you blog post yesterday." It was in a way that made me wonder if I got drunk, blacked out and posted drunken pictures. It turns out I blogged about the same location too close together - she's keeping me honest I guess.

  30. Too funny! I save any text messages my mother sends me because they are equally hilarious.

    Hope you've had a good weekend!

  32. Your mom says "suck"?? That's amazing. Congrats on a great one!

  33. Ha- your mom sounds like a hoot. <- something my mom would say.

  34. Your mom can't find the skanky post you wrote over at that other site? I found it in like a second. Why do you seem surprised that his blog has groupies? Don't you keep track of the hits? And wonder where all the traffic is coming from?
