This is How I Feel, Volume 40

in this is how I feel

If you’re new here (hello!), This is How I Feel happens on Fridays, reflecting my deep, deep love of GIFs and dumb captions.

We’re at 40! I can hardly believe it.

Congrats on 40! The only thing worse than a baby FB page is a pet FB page… when I get a request, I just stare blankly at the screen for a few minutes. Have a good weekend, Roo!

What!? Is this real life?

Roo January 10, 2014 at 11:51 am

That can’t be real. Brad, you need cooler friends.

Amanda January 10, 2014 at 1:09 pm

It’s real. My friend’s sister did it too and posted updates for him.

Oops, I posted to Rebecca instead of you. Copy/paste.

“Brad, you need cooler friends.”

Hey, I don’t make them. I just deny them. DENY. Okay so there’s only been one, but still DENY.

I’m open to some new friends though, hit me up. Let’s be pals. Don’t send me weird FB pages though. Deal?

Reply

Roo January 10, 2014 at 1:20 pm

Sending you allllll the weird FB pages.

As always, Roo, you crack me up. Especially with the baby fb profile. That’s ridiculous. :) Happy Friday to you!

Reply

Roo January 10, 2014 at 11:53 am

Happy Friday to you, too! xo

Yes to Every Single One of those. TIHIF is my favorite part of the week. :)

Roo January 10, 2014 at 11:54 am

Yay!! That makes me unreasonably happy. :)

the FB baby profile .gif killed me! too funny!

Reply

Roo January 10, 2014 at 11:54 am

Kanye may be a jerk, but at least he’s good for some quality GIFs. ;)

Dana January 10, 2014 at 11:38 am

Last one is amazing! hahahaha! Also, the polar vortex one is no joke. I’m from Michigan. Brrrrr…

Reply

Roo January 10, 2014 at 11:55 am

Michigan! BRR indeed. I hope you own a reaaaally puffy coat. Connecticut’s been cold, but the lowest we’ve hit is 5 below.

Reply

Leah Butler January 29, 2014 at 12:28 pm

5 below? That’s it?!! Jeez, if we hit 25 below here one more time, you are going to find me clawing my way into the middle of my blanket heap with a space heater and my fuzzier cat to keep me warm.

The FB one. One of the reasons I no longer Facebook. Ha. Ppl do that on Instagram now. :|
You can’t go wrong with Liv.

Roo January 10, 2014 at 11:56 am

FB misses you.

The NF FB page misses you. ;)

Yeeees pizza throwdown. Because when I actually get to have some, I’m going to eat every last slice. :) Happy Friday!

Reply

Roo January 13, 2014 at 7:28 am

Yeah, if I’m going to eat pizza, I’m going to go big. Haha. Thanks, Trude! Hope your weekend was lovely!

Becca January 10, 2014 at 12:11 pm

Is that a Lord of the Rings AND a Game of Thrones reference in the same post? You made my quasi nerdy self happy.

Reply

Roo January 13, 2014 at 7:22 am

Hahaha yessssssss!

Jenn January 10, 2014 at 12:13 pm

whattttt how is this number 40?! In other news- I was the yoga one this week but change 9 days to 3 weeks. :-|

Roo January 13, 2014 at 7:22 am

Coming back hurts sooooo badly, doesn’t it?

Ashley January 10, 2014 at 12:20 pm

This is basically my favorite series ever, because I sit here waving my hand saying “Loooord yes!” to all of them. Like every time.

Kinda like this lady, actually: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lvdp84JHjx1r4ghkoo1_250.gif
(you know, in the spirit of GIFs ;) )

Ashley January 10, 2014 at 12:21 pm

Or like Lauryn Hill in Sister Act. That’s also highly appropriate.

Roo January 13, 2014 at 7:23 am

Hahahahaha I’ve used both of those GIFs in the past! I think the non-Lauryn Hill one as an example of how I feel when I put on jeans and they fit. ;P

Reply

Ashley January 13, 2014 at 9:07 am

Haha yes!! Great minds. ;)

I feel that way when I go shoe shopping and actually find something I want that’s on sale. =)

Ceci Bean January 10, 2014 at 12:32 pm

Kanya does not want to be friends with your baby. REQUEST DENIED.

Reply

Roo January 13, 2014 at 7:29 am

Haha, indeed. His face is hysterical.

Reply

Anna January 10, 2014 at 1:08 pm

I have also fallen victim to the pet FB page requests. Specifically one from a pup named Button. I paused for just a second before not accepting the request because I mean..come on..her name is Button..

Reply

Roo January 13, 2014 at 7:27 am

Hahaha, you have a kind, gentle heart, Anna.

Reply

Jessica January 10, 2014 at 1:09 pm

Seriously the highlight of my week every week!

Baby fb profiles + Kanye gif = nailed it! Hilarious!!!

Can we all agree to unfriend the pet profiles too? Just…why are these real?

Reply

Roo January 13, 2014 at 7:23 am

Girl, I had no idea these were real until Brad commented up there ^^^^. So weird.

Reply

Erin January 10, 2014 at 6:04 pm

I noticed that my friends 4yo (or so) nephew had a Facebook the other day, because it was a recommendation of people I may know…. that was my exact reaction. No, just no.

Reply

Roo January 13, 2014 at 7:23 am

“Auntie Erin does not want you in her news feed.” Hahahahaha.

Reply

Shelby January 11, 2014 at 1:18 am

No. Facebook page for baby? No, no, just no. Help. Me.

Reply

Roo January 13, 2014 at 7:24 am

Status update: I drooled today! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.

Reply

Megan January 13, 2014 at 11:02 am

Yes, the baby FB gif! I had a friend ask me, when I announced that I was pregnant, when I was going to make a Facebook for my baby. My in utero baby!! Come on.
