Some pretty weird stuff comes my way these days.
I get emails from sweet people that just want to know MORE about me. (Like where I live, where I get my haircut and how old I was when I finally lost my virginity.)
I get emails like this one from Herb…
I seen yer farts page. It works good. Please email me.
People come to my page by searching for weird things like:
why does my car smell like cheese
But I think this request (or should I say offer?) that I received pretty much takes the cake…
It’s so odd that it feels a little dirty to even talk about it – although it’s not technically dirty.
It launched a lengthy debate with my girls’ night out group about whether we would or wouldn’t do it.
And I’d love to know what you think…
Here’s the message that I received:
you might have seen my posts around and was wondering if maybe you could post it on your site.
I buy pics of women’s feet for $50. now please before you get all crazy on me, please hear me out.
its only feet and you ladies basically show them for free during the summertime, so why not get paid to take some pics of them now.
a big part of my offer is that I like to help women out that can use the extra money. I have paid 488 different women so far, many of them multiple times and some as many as 15 times.
I can easily prove that I am legit as some other sites have posted my offer and many women have been paid from it.
it’s only feet and easy money for those that can use it. could you please let me know if you might be interested in posting my offer on your site? thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you
another site posted my offer yesterday and 15 women messaged me interested in taking the offer so women do respond positively when they are able to see the offer
My guess is that this guy has a foot fetish. Kind of like that dude in Sex in the City that was obsessed with Charlotte’s feet. Remember that?
And he’s using his fetish to help moms that might need some extra cash.
I’m just guessing here. Even Steven seems to think he might want to see pictures of feet for medical training purposes – which I think is really sweet of Even Steven, don’t you?
So what do you think?
If someone said they would clean your house for you in exchange for a picture of your feet, would you do it?
If someone stopped you at the gas pump and said they’d fill your tank for a picture of your feet, would you do it?
If someone said they’d give you a haircut in exchange for a picture of your feet, would you do it?
It’s “just feet” right? Or not?
Would you do it? Or does the whole concept make you want to throw up?
Update: See the video below – I survived!
FOX19.com-Cincinnati News, Weather
Believe it or not, I’m going to be on television today.
That’s right. At 10:25 am ET, I will be chatting it up with Tracey Johnson at Fox 19.
And what do you think I’ll be talking about?
All the pranks I like to play on Even Steven?
How my mother loved my brother the best when I was growing up?
Not a chance.
How I have three adorable kids that are slowly destroying my house?
Well – I might mention them…
But what I’m really going to be talking about are PEEPS.
Yes, I said PEEPS – and even more surprising is that I’m going to be COOKING with them.
And I can’t cook – but let’s have that be our little secret mmmkay?
I know what you’re thinking, “Wait a minute. Aren’t PEEPS for Easter?”
Yes – they are for Easter, but there are two new flavors out this summer – lemonade and bubble gum – and guess what? They are GOOD. Like seriously good – and I should know because I ate my weight in PEEPS this weekend while I created these recipes.
There are at least a million things that could go wrong this morning – from forgetting how to speak when they point the camera at me to realizing that my man hands are actually too large to fit in the studio. Not to mention the little fact that I don’t have a clue what I’m doing.
But power to the PEEPS, I have decided to just have fun with this, and I know that as long as my brother isn’t on television somewhere else, my mom will be watching online – so there’s that.
If you live in Cincinnati, you can tune in to Fox 19 at 10:25 am to watch me cook with PEEPS.
And if you don’t live here, but you are dying to see me live on TV, you can click here to watch it online.
Assuming I don’t burn the TV station down or get escorted out by police, I’ll try to hop back on this afternoon to post a clip too.
And what, exactly will I be making?
Why don’t we start with what I WON’T be making, shall we?
In all my PEEPSalicious research this weekend, I found this pool cake that I just had to make. I had to.
Isn’t it just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? You can grab the entire recipe here, but you basically make two cakes, stack them on top of each other, frost them, cut out a little rectangle, pour some blue jello in there and then decorate it with PEEPS.
How hard could it be, right?
Here’s the one I made to bring on air with me this morning.
Did I mention that I don’t cook?
Not to worry though, I found a few more things that were easy enough to make – even for me.
I’m starting out with the perfect goodies to sell at your next lemonade stand.
Peeps Cookies are about the easiest thing on earth to make. Are you ready?
1. Spread some frosting on a graham cracker.
2. Put a lemonade-flavored PEEP on top of the frosting.
3. EAT IT
And as for the lemonade – did you know that PEEPS float? Yup – and what kid doesn’t want a PEEP floating in their lemonade? I can’t think of a single one.
Moving right along, I have the perfect treats to serve at your next fire pit party.
PEEPS Popcorn Bars
I had to make three batches of this recipe because I couldn’t stop eating them. And it couldn’t be easier.
1. Toss a bag of popcorn in the microwave – just a regular, 3 oz. bag of microwave popcorn.
2. Melt 40 PEEPS and 2 tablespoons of butter on the stove.
3. Add the popped popcorn to the melted PEEPS and stir.
4. Press them into a 9 x 13 pan and let cool for 10 minutes
5. Try not to stuff your face with them. (It’s hard – trust me.)
PEEPS melt just like marshmallows – if not a little faster. My kids love bubble gum flavored PEEPS on their S’mores, and I find the lemonade-flavored PEEPS to be super refreshing.
And – here’s my summer tip that will blow your mind – make your S’mores with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Seriously – life changing.
And for your next picnic, you can liven up the party with PEEPS!
How adorable are these kabobs? I was totally inspired by the Frugalista’s Easter kabobs. We added some fruit to ours, and they’re the perfect dish to bring to a picnic – or they make adorable centerpieces on the tables.
Okay – after I failed at the PEEPS pool cake, I hopped on Pinterest to find another kind of PEEPS cake that I could make that would be a little easier. And I came across this awesomeness.
I picked up a round, white cake from my local bakery, and on the air, I’ll be decorating it to look like a flower. You’ll just have to watch the clip to see how easy this is – but trust me – you’re going to want to make one too!
Whew – see how much fun it can be to cook with PEEPS this summer? You can visit the official PEEPS web site for even more great recipes and fun activities you can do with PEEPS.
Wish me luck this morning, and be sure to stop back later to see if I survived my television debut.
Remember the time when I was about 10 years old, and we pulled into the driveway and my brother was shooting hoops on the basketball court? And instead of turning off the car and getting out, we pulled up to the edge of the court and every time he made a basket, you’d honk the horn?
And so he kept making baskets, and you kept honking?
Do you remember that?
It was like you were letting the world know (or the swamp behind our house at least) that you were so proud of him.
That he was strong and talented and important.
Do you remember that?
I’ve never forgotten it.
At the time I thought it was so cool that we had created a little cheering section for him at our basketball court at home.
And then I kindof waited for you to do the same for me. I wanted to feel that constant, undying support. You know?
I know you became my team’s assistant tennis coach so that you could talk to me at the fence – even though you didn’t know anything about tennis.
I know you told me my hair was adorable even when it wasn’t.
I know you once got into the car at 10 at night to drive 6 hours to pick me up from college when I called to tell you I was so homesick my freshman year.
And I appreciate all that. I really do.
But have you ever thought that maybe Nick got his PhD and became a famous shark researcher and gave a TED talk and travels the world to share his knowledge about sharks because he knew that every time he did something, there’d be someone there to “honk the horn?”
He always knew that no matter what happened, he’d have his own personal cheering section at home – and that’s all that mattered?
Did you ever think about that?
And did you ever think that I became a housewife that sits around all day and talks to my internet friends because… well… you know…
Bwahahahaha! Oh my gosh – I’m sorry guys – I just had to do it. I couldn’t resist. This kind of thing gets her all kinds of riled up, and it’s just too. much. fun. My phone should start ringing in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…
