And the Best Truth Won

Wow. The truths yesterday were nothing short of awesome.

Simon, the heavy favorite going into the competition, astounded us with his criminal acts and then floored us with his obvious disdain for Twizzlers. Be glad you don't live next door to Gail because she wouldn't hesitate to call the police on your ass.

Little Ms. J. wet her pants, while Lola peed with her MacBook (impressive!).

Matt Rush still thinks we're Siamese twins and is going to be extremely let down if he ever meets us and figures out that we're actually just two lame, separate sisters.

Jill Hathaway defaced an ARC of Liar Society (oh the SHAME!). Of course it was all on account of a burrito, so we can't exactly blame her.

Sarah took a nasty spill and Ashley started a charitable action.

Kare almost walked away with the prize for being smart enough to pepper her truths with a rave review of Liar Society. Well played.

Marsha made us laugh out loud (as always), while Jem gave us a visual that will make it pretty much impossible to ever enter the bathroom at Outback Steakhouse without cracking up.

But in the end only one truth could take home the big prize. And it's a truth that's very close to this new mother's heart:






truth: I really wanted to win, because i think it like, releases endorphins or something... so i must admit that i am typing one-handed and the other hand is attached to my own boobie... i pumped breastmlik at the same time i emptied my google reader. titilating, i know.

Amber, as a fellow new mother who allegedly dropped her laptop on top of her newborn's head during one particularly traumatic nursing session, I am proud to pronounce you the winner of our first ever Tell the Truth Tuesday contest. You have earned those chocolate covered Twizzlers, my friend. E-mail us your address to collect your delicious prize.

Amber just made me laugh so hard I teared up. Thank you!!! How did I miss this?? OMGosh...these are great! I needed it, especially because it's a snow day and I'm stuck in the house with four kids and....(shh....the hubby is off, today). Pray for me. lol

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I can't believe I missed this. I really have to check the blogs on Tuesday. I miss all the fun.

Gasp! Someone deface an Arc of Liar Society with a burrito. Chocolate sauce would have been more forgivable (and would have made it even yummier). :)

Little Ms J said...

Congrats, Amber! Well done.

Dara said...

LOL that is the best truth EVER.

Matthew Rush said...

Boy, talk about brutal honesty. Well done Amber, well done. I'm honored to even be considered in the same category as your story.

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

Damn! I forogt about the allure of boobies!

Kerri C at CK Farm said...

HA HA HA! Amber I have dubbed you queen of mommy multitasking!

Thank goodness I wasn't drinking my coffee because I would have sprayed it everywhere!

Endorpin up and enjot those Twizzlers!

JEM said...

Damn. Stealing choco-covered Twizzlers from a baby? No problem. Stealing choco-covered Twizzlers from a woman nursing a baby? Too cold. Well played, Amber. Well played.

Simon C. Larter said...

Amber's a guilty pleasure of mine. I mean...her blog's a guilty pleasure of mine. Obvi. The kid looks nothing like me.

*cough*

Congratulations to my favorite oversharing first-time mother!

:)

Colene Murphy said...

Bahahahaha! That is hilarious. Best truth ever.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Okay, I just snorted my coffee up my nose - no lie!! That is a clear and deserving winner!! LOL. :-)

Kayeleen Hamblin said...

Wow. That could have been my truth since I read most of my blogs during the middle of the nursing fest. Awesome.

Marsha Sigman said...

How can we compete with such brutal boobie honesty?

Congrats, Amber!

Lola Sharp said...

She's a worthy winner! Congrats Amber! :)

Krispy said...

LOL, congrats Amber!

Now I think I need to go back and read through the comments for some of these truths...

K. M. Walton said...

I can't believe I missed this contest - I didn't have anything as perfect to share as the winner though - so I'm just glad I read your top picks.

Hilarious.

Dangerous With a Pen said...

HAHAHAHA!!! Ohhh how I do not miss pumping...

Jemi Fraser said...

Well deserved Amber!!! :)

ali said...

ROFL! Definitely a winner, that one!

Amber Tidd Murphy said...

Squeespice!

I can't believe it.

I WOULD win an over-share-ish contest on a Thursday, the day I normally devote to TMI.

(Howev, if any of your readers find their way to my blog today --there is no TMI Thursday post, nothing funny... just a sappy poem I wrote. DANG it.)

But, YAY for ChocoTwizzlers.

P.S. I do think my baby gal, Stella, has Simon's eyes. Just sayin'.

Amber Tidd Murphy said...

Came back over here because I realized that the results were posted YESTERDAY, so my win was on a Wednesday, not today -- Thursday.

Previous comment = FAIL.

(Sleep deprivation, you'll understand.)
