Free Association Friday: Marinka

Welcome, FAFians! The riotous bloggerinka of Motherhood in New York joins me for free association today here on m’blog and over at HBDC blog. I provided the words in bold and she associated freely.

Bouganvilla I’m going to need an antibiotic, aren’t I?

Tina Yothers– Jennifer. DUH.

Chiminea — the fuck?

Chimera — OMG, my parents once had the worst fight because mama called papa a chimera. We were in Paris at the time, so it was sort of fitting.

Hey Jumbo Jumbo — hey yourself!

Bun Cover— I’ll take two, please.

Decoupage— seriously, if I’m ever decoupaging, you’ll know that I’ve had a nervous breakdown and you should liberate my Husbandrinka underneath the decoupage.

Pica You know that English is my second language, right? What’s with all the SAT words?

Fun Dip— is there any other kind?

Sycophant— you look absolutely beautiful and I love your blog. Incidentally, did you know that I am now also blogging at The Mouthy Housewives?

Pfefferneuse— Michelle Pfeiffer’s real name.

Good Yontif-– Can’t eat or watch TV, what’s good about it?

Outre– Inre

Bunion-I don’t do feet.

Funyun–I had no idea what a Funyun was until The Sarah Silvermann Program.

Thanks Marinka! In addition to her bloggy hysterics over at Motherhood in NYC, Marinka also gives back to bloggyville by providing two different sites for kvetching. If you haven’t already, go seek guidance from Marinka & Friends over at “The Mouthy Housewives.” If you still feel verklempt, whine your heart out over at Secret Spineless Whine.

    So funny. I now am craving fun dip. What am I? Like 8 or something?

  • G. Coppard June 5, 2009, 6:19 am

    Brilliant! And I don’t blame Michelle for changing her last name… poor girl.

  • Sophie, Inzaburbs June 5, 2009, 7:12 am

    English is my first language, but American isn’t. There can be no other explanation for that list leaving me feeling so uneducated. Or maybe I just need to get out more?
    Anyhow .. always happy to read more Marinka :-)

    Outre – Inre

    Of course!

  • ♥ Braja June 5, 2009, 8:21 am

    I didn’t recognize a single word. Except for Michelle Pfeiffer’s real name. Marinka should teach language. With vodka. And Vodka. And…hey this is starting to sound good….

  • Pseudonymous High School Teacher June 5, 2009, 9:31 am

    Am I the only one that sees “if support Empty Paras” all over the place? Is it subliminal?

    And Marinka rocks. I love her sense of humor.

  • Joanna Jenkins June 5, 2009, 9:36 am

    This is why i get up early on Fridays! LOVE the post. THANK YOU LADIES!

  • bejewelL@yahoo.com June 5, 2009, 7:58 pm

    I actually have a chiminea in my backyard, and I STILL don’t know what that shit is.

  • bejewelL June 5, 2009, 7:59 pm

    P.S. Apparently my name now includes an extra special capital “L” at the end. The hell?!?

  • P.P.S. I also apparently do not follow instructions very well, since I added my entire email address for the world to see instead of just my name. WTF is WRONG with me today? Fuck it. At least it’s extra comments for you.

  • anymommy June 5, 2009, 9:09 pm

    My favorite FAF yet. Wait? What’s a sychophant again?

  • Kate Coveny Hood June 5, 2009, 10:22 pm

    I love free association. Espcially when Tina Yothers is involved.

    By the way – that code thing is happening again. Is it just my computer? Doesn’t look like anyone else notices it…

  • Pearl June 6, 2009, 12:04 am

    I get the code thing all over, too.

    And you gals is crazy. I need to stop by more often…


  • Joyce and Dorothy June 6, 2009, 6:58 am

    This Marinka is Russian, right? OK, so you and her get your sorry asses over to our porch, where the alcohol and ammunition are free (she can bring Russian vodka) and let’s shoot us up some neighbors. Hell we have fun over here…
