#tBt- Awkward Warning Signs of the 90’s

Nature? Nurture? Gluten? Video Games? Breastfeed? Vaccines? My current Facebook Newsfeed is full of young mothers telling their online world which is right, asking others what is wrong, then outlets, like Huffington Post fill any gaps via Blogs, disguised as news….

mommy blogger, newsfeed, blowing up, experts, overprotective, children, babiesApparently, I’m now at an age where peers find it offensive to imply there is comparable cuteness between Winston Churchill-looking white babies & my little dog/one-eyed cat.

Note- weekly preggers updates are NOT cute. My age aside, it’s become obvious that technology has given the common parent too much information on how to raise offspring.

Luckily, going through old home videos lead me to one fact- Kids are weirdnap, little girl, children, go home, wasted

That being said, I’ve decided to write the rest of this article in the style of a Mommy-Blog….

Allow me to show you a few images & videos that will highlight awkward character warning signs. If only my parents had caught these in time, could possibly be a slightly different woman today.

Exhibit A- Super 90’s Troll Girl & her Super Southern Star Wars Nerd Brother

Red Flags:

* STFU about the Troll! And those “horse” noises were creepy- split personalities? nonhuman values?

* Older sibling’s pronunciation of “The EMM-PAR’ Straks BACK should not be how YOUR child pronounce ANY title EVER- speech therapy?

* Babs & Buster Bunny + Troll + Cabbage Patch Horse + Consistent, Individual Sound Effects for Each = Arrested Development circa 1992?

*** WHY IS EVERYONE NOT FREAKING OUT ABOUT THE TINY KITTY!?

Exhibit B- Bubble Girl

Red Flags:

* Bubble Girl finds blowing bubbles with English Bulldog more appealing than with human sibling Obvious precursor to Disliking most People!

* Little Brother seems sweet & wants to learn about bubbles; however the dog partakes in strange tribalesque Bubble Dance the girl has made up- Possible Space Cadet Personality Traits? Borderline demonic possession?

Exhibit C- Goat Girl

Red Flags: 

* Seriously, why does little Liz want to hug those goats so badly!? This could be any number of issues…

* Family friend talks about Goat Girl as she continues trying to seduce friendship from livestock with zero reaction from parents and/or nearby children- reasoning tells us this has happened before (no bueno)….

Exhibit D- Lone Tricycle Ranger

Red Flags:

* It’s Xmas and little Liz attempts off-roading, on her new tricycle, in the snow- Basic Physics? Holiday Joy?

* Younger sibling could give 2 f*cks about anyone/thing, except kitten- Animal abuser potential? Will this boy be a serial killer if nobody intervenes? 

* Post accident, Girl acts as if wiping out painfully is nbd, then appears to forget which part of her body was hurt- Missing nerve endings? Adrenaline junkie? Accident prone Insurance issues to come?

Exhibit E- Tiny Dancer (where’s your rhythm?) 

Red Flags:

* The young, Fabulously Awkward Girl, has no idea what she’s doing, even after months of practice-WARNING: This is most likely a 2-left-feet situation & requires IMMEDIATE attention from a professional. 

BELIEVERS THAT CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE: study these videos so you’ll know a few of the traits that could possibly result in adult abnormalities, such as Chronic-Bitch-Face, Sarcasm, “Most of the Population isn’t Bright” Attitude, Awkwardness, ETC.

Goat Girl made Goat Friends after all…what a freak.

Summary- my childhood was the AMAZING, partly because of the 2 hilarious boy siblings featured, & am just a stereotypically over-imaginative middle child, who grew up to be a hilarious Blogger

ALSO- PEOPLE WITH CHILD[ren]: STOP POSTING SONOGRAMS, URINE SAMPLE PREGNANCY TESTS, & HOURLY UPDATES ON SOCIAL MEDIA. Thankssssss- xx

wtf Wednesday- what kind of blog is this?

keywords, search engine, weird, random, google, wtf, wednesday, funnyToday I was doing a bit of keyword research when I came across the Fabulously Awkward Girl daily stats….what, might you ask, is the most frequently search engine term that lead people to this site? Why, “BIG BLACK MONSTER BOOTY,” of course!

 Mind you, only 3 total search terms have been used today, but STILL!

Of course, further research was then required, in the name of writing & below are the top search term used since the beginning of time (for this site):

random, funny, humor, birthday cards, african american, surprise, blog, awkwardPray signs!? Shoe shelf!? Young white girl ass!? Friendly person text!? Based on this list, I have no idea what kind of blog I’ve ended up with here, but I think it’s living up to the Awkward title.

Summary- Don’t know how you found this blog, but it makes me happy that so many weird Google searches have resulted in a chunk of my audience

Say Hello to EDGAR “sauron” DEGAS

I rescued a one-eyed cat & took yet another big step toward becoming twenty-something spinster.

A little background- my new cat not only lost an eye sometime between April-ish and when I found him, but was also saved within seconds of being compacted in a garbage truck. He had a proper surgery to remove the missing eye so, lucky for anyone looking at him, his fur grew over the eye socket scar and it appears he is continuously winking.

Nerd, Cat Lady, Awkward, LOL

Edgar Degas was a French impressionist who, over time, went blind in one eye. Late in his career he became fascinated with long exposure photography, so when he wasn’t creeping on ballerinas he would spend hours in the dark slowly taking pictures.

Sauron was the Dark Lord over Middle Earth who forged the ONE RING of power. He/She/It was known for some time in the form of an all seeing eye stationed in Mordor.

I could go on and on about this creature and Schubert. But, in a nutshell, they are bros and spend most of their days running, playing, and cuddling together. I could start a series of chain emails that get sent around with bible verses attached and people would LOVE IT. However, I’m not focused enough to start such a trend so don’t get your hopes up.

Pets, Cute, Kitten, Dog, Best Friends

Summary- my friend Mike said, “Liz, Schubert really needs a man in his life,” so I got him a cyclops kitty.

Hot Yoga = Hot Mess

Yoga is a practice that demands all of your grace, balance, and coordination work together as one glorious machine. HA!

I’m not trying to be cute. Sure, Jennifer Lawrence can get away with falling at the Oscars while still being adorable- duh! I cannot. Anyone who has spent more than an hour with me can tell you that I rarely walk without ending up with a bruise somewhere.

Anyways, today, after spending some time getting back in “Namaste shape,” I had the courage to rejoin a class that had defeated me back in May…. It was hot, but I was hydrated. The class was long, but I had stretched. Every other person in the class was 40+, and I STILL got my ass, breath, and brain handed to me (see below).

workout, gym, selfie, sunglasses, awkward

If you look closely you can see that every inch of me is soaking wet with sweat, toxins, and who knows what else…

So, if you’re feeling down on yourself today, Bookmark this post and refer back as needed.

Summary- Breathing, stretching, and balancing at the same time can be tricky. 

My Little Brother is a Doppelgänger

It’s Monday, I’m feeling lazy, and you’re probably bored at work. So, I want to keep it simple and just show you an image… The picture below compares Josh Hartnett‘s character, Ethan Chandler, from Penny Dreadful with a recent photograph of my younger brother.

doppelganger, penny dreadful, ethan chandler, family, doppelgänger, folklore, character, celebrity

Weird, right?

Anyone else out there a Doppelganger? Let me know!

Summary- Now that Josh Hartnett is sporting questionable facial hair, he could pass as my relative. 

WTF Wednesday- ELouise’s Little Studio in the Big Green House Pt. 2

Today was reserved for my ongoing design project. Did I hang pictures on the wall? Absolutely not. What did I do? I read 9 issues of The Etude music magazines published in 1941. W.T.F.

(Warning- Sh*ts about to get weird)

BEHOLD a handful of the countless highlights from these periodicals!

Music, Magazine, Vintage, Strange, Funny, Design, Shabby Chic, creepy, baby, instruments

Yes, that is a baby on top of what appears to be most of a brass section. What happened to the band that went with it? Only he knows. 

Vintage, Magazine, Music, Hitler, Beethoven, Weird, Funny

Short answer- No.

Music, Magazine, Vintage, Strange, Funny, Design, Shabby Chic

No worries, folks, summertime is Vacation Tempo time with The Etude.

pretentious, funny, Music, Magazine, Vintage, Strange, Humor, Design, Shabby Chic

Rich people love music.

Music, Magazine, Vintage, Strange, Funny, Design, Shabby Chic, piano, creepy, weird

This girl is every young piano student’s nightmare. I know, because I lived it.

And this leads me to the grand finale of today’s post…..a tale as old as time…..

Scary, Weird, Awkward, Music, Magazine, Vintage, Strange, Funny, Design, Shabby ChicI feel like the writer knows my soul. Give me music or give me electroshock therapy! 

I find my grandmother’s collection of her monthly music treat to be equal parts upsetting, relatable, and pretentious. The combined emotions make for the most awkward rush I’ve had in years.

Now, anyone have ideas on how these beauties should be displayed? I’ve got 9 covers and plan to have all showcased. 

Summary- Planning media in 1941 must have been weird.

UPDATE!!! Who is Fabulously Awkward Girl?

My name is Liz and this post accurately answers the age-old question……

WHO IS LIZ?
