1 highly coveted blue light saber spoon

We will now stop hoarding boxes of specially marked cereal.

Good luck finding your own spoon. May the force be with you.

As always you've brightened my morning.

I don't know why anyone would want to copy the crud you post of this crusty old blog.

Get out of town! I had no idea about the blue spoon.... I had better start eating some Kellog's cereal so Hubby and Kid can get coveted spoons of their own.

LOL We're on box 8 or something like that, and have all red but on green spoon. Luckily it works, lol. Dh has claimed it, as he says he is the only one in the house (aside from Mom, who doesn't care to use one) who qualifies to use a Jedi spoon; clearly all the other spoon users are working on the Dark Side! LOL

Thank-you for your opinion anonymous.

You are so brave to post your comment behind the veil of anonymity.

Anonymous, you should learn how to properly express your thoughts with the written word before posting a disparaging comment in reference to the blog of such a fine, esteemed, and dare I say talented and sexy, woman!!

There is nothing more annoying than a nasty anonymous post. Get a life or atleast if you dont like it and want to post, post with your name. Or better yet be somewhat intelligent dont read the site you dont like.

I quite enjoy your site so keep up the great postings. I love checking in everyday!

We have the opposite problem in this house. We have all blue and only one red light saber spoon. My son was mad today because he didnt get to eat with the red spoon and he said "but mom I want to go to the dark side" I was rolling on the floor.

Don't I have such a nice chivalrous husband?!

It's probably a good thing that troll did post anonymously.

i can relate. when episode 2 came out my (then) 30 year old fiance ate more boxes of sugar coated cereal than i care to count.

just to get the light saber pen.

(or whatever toy was stuffed under all that sugar)

I love the trolls. Whatever they write, you're pretty much guaranteed the opposite is true. Ya think it's the plagiarist?

I love that your hubs came to metaphorically kick anonymous ass! Ha ha ha!

I think it was the plagiarist. Meaniehead.

My hubs would totally want one of those spoons, just because it glows, not because of star wars.

Yes, I got a million red spoons. I finally grabbed a green and blue spoon.

However, my lunch has not consistently been cereal for the last two weeks. But I think all the food groups are covered. Fruit Loops are fruit, right?

Anonymous, let go of your hate. It will only lead to the dark side.

Can you believe there are people like this in the world?

Chris, you're awesome. I envy your blue spoon.

Blogger Jody said...

Oh!! You have a troll! You've made the big time!!!! All of the popular blogs have trolls! LOLOL

I had some spare time today after cleaning up the over flowing toilet and read back over some of your archives. That's some fun writing, Chris. Good, good stuff.

So, kiss off troll/copy cat.

Oh, and Chris' husband rocks!

I'll bet that's the person who copied you... Remember the whole bumper sticker thing? This is someone who clearly needs a booger flicked on them.

And crusty? What kind of insult is THAT? I mean, really.

BTW, Sophia likes playing with Brent's spoon - a red one. She can't push the button and hold it at the same time, so it's kind of a team effort around here.

Trolls are crusty.

I only have 1 red spoon.
I was planning on eating my way through acquiring one of every color. But now im on nutrisystem.

Obviously all the blue spoons are at Audrey's. Why, God? Why? We have 3 red and 1 green. And yes, there are fights. They all want red. I'm almost glad we didn't get a blue. Imagine the battles then!

Oooooh. We're doing the same thing with those doggone squatty-lookin' action figures from Burger King. But they're two for $1.29 with one adult-sized meal! I mean, is that a deal OR WHAT? Plus I could win A MILLION DOLLARS! A. MILLION. DOLLARS! Instantly! I've been to B.K. three times in three days. It's really not enough.

Oh, and by the way, if you really need to get a life, Chris, they have 'em at Wal*Mart. That's where I picked mine up. They're in the aisle next to the "Best Friends" charms. ;-)

****WAAAHHHH**** they don't sell those cereal boxes here... so we don't even see them.

I don't even like the movies really, and not a huge sugar cereal fan....but it might be worth it for my family. *sigh* I know...what a sacrifice. Puts me right up there in the running for Mom o' the year.
Chris--love the blog....and I find I am sad when I check your stuff and it hasn't been updated in the last hour. Impatient I know, but I always get a good laugh, because you say totally what I feel with so many kids! :)Thanks for the laughs....
Yer Husband's a doll...

To the troll....GET A GRIP...GROW UP AND GO FIND SOME BILLYGOATS TO HARRASS.

I so love this blog !! Chris I read your blog now everyday...You make my life seem so normal :)

As for the spoons, We *just started* collecting them. We have 3 sons and Dh came up with this rule that no one could use the new spoons until each of them had one. One more box to go and the fun begins!!

Have you thought of selling the exra soons on ebay??

We finally got our blue spoon too! Only now, I want another one...I have two reds and two greens, it only makes sense, right? Now let's see how many more red ones and green ones I will acquire in my quest.

My husband got the blue one on the first try in a box of honey smacks

Chris,

How do you know the color of your non-working spoon?

4:56 PM  
Blogger Chris said...

Todd,

The package has a letter on on it which tells you the color of your spoon.

Since it seems like the thing to do to copy you and because I was feeling left out, I ended up walking out of Wal-mart 2 days ago with twelve, that's right - 12! boxes of mostly sugary cereals. It started with me buying reasonably healthy cereal, then seeing the Star Wars images on some boxes, I remembered your high-larious post about the spoons, and I decided to find them myself.
We started with 3 boxes of Apple Jacks, then added a Rice Krispies for the "wobbly" toy inside, picked up a box of Rice Krispie Treats cereal to get the free Spongebob watch, 2 boxes of Frosted Flakes (also for the spoons), and a few other misc. boxes of cereal, because, apparently, we didn't have enough variety. You can tell my hubs and kids were with me.
I had such a good time! It was awesome!

Of course, on the way home, we tried to remember if we had any milk at home because we hadn't bought any.
We ended up with 2 blue and 3 red spoons. Looking for the green now...
