Go ahead, amuse me Aimee

Today’s guest on Go ahead, amuse me is Aimee from Fearless Fibro Warrior.  I hope you’ll enjoy this post and then scramble over to her BLOG to read further.  Here’s what she has to say about herself:

Hi, I’m Aimee. My alter ego is Fearless Fibro Warrior, and you can always find me at  I’m kind of a big deal over there.

I love to write and love to make people laugh. A couple years ago, I stumbled across some great material: I became sick.  Now, I’m in recovery from myself, and when I’m overmedicated, I put out some really good stuff. I have insane children, and a very patient, hard-of-hearing husband.  And I found Lynn through one of my many episodes of shameless self-promotion. Thanks, Lynn, for stroking my ego, and for sharing my crazy.


In Which I Clean Behind the Fridge for Fun and Profit


Our fridge has some early-onset debilitating disease. Like me, but younger. And colder (unless you’re counting her heart, says my snotty younger brother). But just as polluting to the ears.


You know when you are 16, and have a crappy 1971 VW Bug, and the starter is going out, because each morning you try to start it and it is getting harder and harder and harder, but you don’t have the time or the cash to fix it and so you wait and then the one day you REALLY have to be on time, and it doesn’t start?  That is our fridge, minus the bumper stickers and ash tray full of lip balm and spare change.


Each morning, we go into the kitchen for our morning harass-kids-to-get-out-of-bed-make-breakfast-feed-kids-make-lunches routine which involves 27 fridge openings.  Our beautiful fridge that was new when we moved in 4 years ago does not like our routine.  And I’m all, “Hey, at least you just have to keep our food cold, try actually living this life.  Just shut up and be our stupid fridge.  If I wanted your opinion, I would have asked for it.”


Each time we open it, it gets slightly warmer, which makes the thermostat do it’s thermostat-y job, which causes the motor to kick on to cool the whole thing, to keep up with our constant opening and closing. It does not like this, and wants to curl into a ball and die, preferably as soon as it is full of Christmas cheer.  I’m on to you, fridge.

Go ahead, amuse me is a weekly posting I will be having featuring another funny blogger.  Or maybe not a blogger … you could just be a funny person.  So, if you would like to be featured all you have to do is email me at and send me a funny post.  If I AGREE that it’s funny, I’ll simply put up your post with a short intro that you write so that my readers will check out your blog.  Of course, you also need to put up a link to my blog saying that you’re being featured over here.


See? WIN-WIN … hope to hear from you … or not!

    Your fridge is forming a conspiracy with my washing machine which is threatening to flood the laundry room in protest over the multiple blue jeans from 4 teenagers. What happened to the days when appliances lived forever and weren’t such smart asses?

      I think they went the way of “Children should be seen and not heard”. I miss those days…
