Curiouser and Curiouser...

There used to be a mock-blog called So Seriously Blessed! It was a send up of ridiculous mommy blogs and it lampooned extreme Utah Mommy behavior (diet coke addictions, tanning addictions, gym addictions, ridiculous baby names, excessive child spoiling, and general selfish and supercilious behavior). The blog author stopped writing and I stopped following, I kind of miss it.

Until now! Move over Seriously So Blessed!, there's three new blogs I've found that keep me entertained.

Meet Eli



Eli has a blog called It Just Gets Stranger...

The blog has been around for a few years but this month it got really interesting. Things started getting entertaining when he received a text from a stranger asking him about wedding gift ideas. Turns out the stranger, Jane, thought she was texting her friend Amanda. Eli thought it would be fun to continue the conversation and they exchanged over 40 messages before Jane caught on.

But it doesn't end with Eli posting the conversation to his blog. No, of course not, where would be the fun in that? Jane's friend stumbled on Eli's blog and showed it to Jane. Which prompted another lengthy text exchange between Eli and Jane. This exchange involved Eli creating a whole new mock-blog about his imaginary 5 children...

Which led to him creating another mock-blog which supposedly contains the poetry of one of his fictitious children, the one named Fortify...

If you need a laugh check out the epic text conversations and the resulting blogs. I especially like the pet chicken named Queen of Colors. It certainly makes me rethink my standard "You have the wrong number" response in these situations, who knows where a friendly jest with a stranger might lead you?
