Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

To begin with, I did not start out the week in an absolute panic because I thought it was Father's Day and I didn't have a gift (have a card, but no gift! EEK!) for my dad. I was not incredibly relieved to realize that NEXT Sunday is actually Father's Day. Phew!

OK, for one thing, I was not left in charge of lil' J for 3 days while mommy and daddy went to Colorado for a film festival. I definitely did not let her stay up past bedtime so we could have a little film festival of our own.

And for sure I did not let her eat 3/4's of a bag of microwave popcorn (which wasn't Extra Butter), peanut butter cups, gummi candy and kool aid because mommy's a health food nut and she wouldn't like that. The Mountain Dew Game Fuel? Not mine. Don't touch the stuff.

And I certainly did not create photographic evidence of any of this.

And later in the week, I did not download the Bolt soundtrack and blatantly lie to my sister when she asked "Are you listening to Miley Cyrus?"
I did not cut off a chunk of skin (and part of my thumbnail) half the size of a dime on the cold cut slicer at work. I've worked there 9 years. I know better than that. Didn't swear when it happened (or didn't happen...) either. And I most certainly did not refuse a trip to the ER and instead slap a few (3, 4...maybe 5) band aids over it and get on with business as usual.
I did not steal MckMama's idea and attempt to take a few self-portraits for my blog. And they didn't come out cheezy and terrible. And I did not end up making funny faces at the camera. Nope. Wouldn't do that.

I did not laugh hysterically as lil' J learned to use her new roller skates. Who would laugh at a 5-year-old flailing around like a spaz and falling every 2 minutes?

Last but not least, I did not rush to make a ton of new jewelry for the bracelet showcase on Etsy today (check it out to see my featured item!) only to be too lazy to take pics and list the stuff.
