Last week, I started Twitter Tuesdays as a way to pay homage to the people who have made me laugh and fall in love with this social media platform.
Twitter is my newest addiction.
I mentioned that I never would have guessed about all of the hilarious tweeps I would get to know…
Okay, so that sounds like I’m a stalker. I don’t really know them. In real life.
But it is quite amazing how much you can learn about someone in 140 characters or less.
Click on “Read More” to laugh. Don’t click it if you are drinking anything… Fair warning: you might get to know what it feels like to shoot coffee out of your nose.
One of my favorite movies is a family tradition – multiple generations of my family, much to my Dad’s dismay, love “The Princess Bride.”
I can quote nearly the whole movie and yet, I love to watch it. Over and over again. It’s one of the best movies of my childhood and ranks right up there with my love of Goonies. And that’s a pretty strong love, right there.
Don’t you just love it?
If you answered ‘no’ to that question, I don’t think we can ever be internet besties. Just sayin’: I have to draw the line somewhere, and that’s it. Every time I watch it, I see something I missed: something in the back ground, a look from an extra that sends me reeling with laughter.
When I think of it, I am reminded of some of my favorite parts:
- As you wish.
- The pit of despair scene in which Wesley is being tortured: “…and remember, this is for posterity, so be honest. How did that make you feel?”
- Rodents of unusual size.
- “Mawage. Mawage is what bwings us togevah today… Skip to the end.”
- “…never get involved in land war in Asia…”
- “Life is pain… Anyone who says differently is selling something.”
- “You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you. You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.”
- “To the pain…” This made me shudder when I first heard it. And it still does.
- “Please consider me as an alternative to suicide.”
- “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
I’ve seen a ton of references to “The Princess Bride” referenced by my tweeps, so I know I’ve found the right people on this platform!
Below are some tweets this week that made me laugh out loud. I hope you enjoy them, too.
Oh, you don’t quote The Princess Bride on a daily basis? *INCONCEIVABLE*

Googling “how to get urine out of car upholstery.” I love being a parent.

I just googled “how to boil an egg” in case you ever thought you wanted me to cook you dinner.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that I should have learned some other stuff.

I got 92/100 on the How much of an asshole are you? quiz. Would’ve gotten 100, but turns out I’m not a vegan.

Showed my kids photos from my childhood and now I’m having to convince them that life was NOT black & white “back in the old days.”

Out to lunch with my kids today & the server asks, “anything I can take away from the table?” “How about 4 kids?”
