  1. That was a great podcast, thank you! I was reminded of my own funny story. It was about 10 years ago, I was working in a male-dominated industry and we all had cubicles where you can stand up and look in to see someone. Anyway the power had gone out at work this particular day (out of the blue), everything went dark, the computers were off and I needed to visit the bathroom so off I go down the hall. I was walking back to my cubicle, the power was still out and the guys are just kind of hanging around my cubicle having a chat and killing time, including my boss who had come out of his office too. I walk back into my cubicle and some of them are giggling. My boss says "Are you an animal?" And I'm like, "what?", and he repeats himself. I said "No, why?" and I turned around and there, tucked into the back of my work pants, is a trail of toilet paper that had decided to stick in my pants. Yay me. So they all start laughing at my 'tail', and for a split second I didn't know whether to laugh or burst into tears. Thank goodness I just started laughing too and quickly went back to dispose of the unwanted guest. haha.

  2. #1) I have to tell you ladies that I absolutely love your podcast. I found it through Ali Edward's mention on her blog in December and since then I have gone back and listened to every episode. I probably listened to that December episode a dozen times while I was working on my own December Daily. Your podcast is a bright spot in my week!

    #2) I also have to tell you guys that snipe are real animals. I had heard of snipe hunting as a joke before. But my husband went on a duck hunting trip earlier this month and they actually killed some snipe (because when flying they look similar to ducks). I thought he was feeding me a line of BS, but I looked it up and they really are real birds. :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snipe So I had a good chuckle when you guys were talking about snipe hunting in today's episode. Thanks for another awesome show!

    1. I had no idea snipe were real! Thanks for teaching me something new today. :) I'm so glad you enjoy the podcast; it thrills me to hear that someone looks forward to hearing us chat about scrappy stuff. :)

  3. Thank you for making my trip to Walmart this morning so enjoyable! I also have a 'almost fell out of the car story' like Tiffany. And my parents were divorced and each side of the family was very different. Thanks for reminding me that I need to get these stories written down!

  4. This episode cracked me up! I really enjoyed the stories - especially Tiffany's date story... I definitely have one of my own from a blind date. Luckily it was not as scary as hers - just funny. I definitely need to write this down. Thanks for the laughs on a Monday morning!

    1. I'm so glad we made you laugh some! Many of my 'stories' are so bizarre that they almost seem fictional. What can I say? I'm apparently a character. Lol!

  5. thank you for this, hilarious again, the first date and the horn I was equally horrified and mortified then rolling laughing.
    I wrote so much here yesterday it wouldn't let me publish it, then I've done it again today and it went blank at publish so here goes 3rd time lucky?
    Listening yesterday made me realise I haven't documented any funny stories really, the odd cute thing with my son but nothing much at all yet humour is a huge part of who I am and from what you say it seems very common.
    I have no sense of direction at all, I can't park, my son from being tiny would know to look for a space for mummy, (one you can drive straight into and out of) or we've a long walk or a few circuits. My last couple of jobs have been as a community nurse, I'll always get there, not necessarily the direct route but I'll get there. The GPS isn't always helpful rurally so I've had some interesting moments paddling through the wrong farm yard.
    Toilets seem to be place of horror with a toddler who would comment on hand hygiene of other users, what may be happening behind each door depending on sounds coming from the cubicle. Then our reluctant reader suddenly found his phonetic mojo in the public loo reading the graffiti out loud and proud.
    A long afternoon at the football (soccer) in front of some very passionate, bare chested, skin headed, well "hydrated" fans after I had foolishly told 4 year old who had discovered he could shock people with previously mentioned bad words that people only said those words because they weren't clever enough to think of better words. 4 year old turned to me at the match and commented that the gentlemen behind us couldn't be very clever could they? How clever did I feel now!
    Thanks for the stories and the inspiration, I'd better get to it, I'm laughing at the thought.

    1. Little kids can definitely make us laugh and embarass us! I have a great public toilet story that involved my niece when she was about 5, but I was afraid to tell it since I'd already skated so close to the line of propriety in this episode. I'm always a little nervous I might run off the more conservative among out listeners. So glad you thought this was a fun episode!

  6. Another great episode ladies! Thanks so much for the inspiration, so many of your shows have me hunting for pen & paper.

    I also have a funny story to share. I had just started dating my future husband, and we were still working together. As in sitting in side by side cubicles. Shortly before my birthday, I get a parcel delivered to me. The lady delivering the mail made a big show of dropping this parcel off at my desk, so I knew immediately something was up. I opened the package to find a birthday card containing two tickets to a local trade show happening the coming weekend - "The Sex Show". I knew full well that this "gift" was not from my then boyfriend (now husband). If you wanted to take me to that show, he would not have delivered the tickets in a public setting. I had my suspicions about who pulled the prank, immediately called them on it and of course they denied it. Later that weekend, I started thinking about the tickets & decided we should use them given that "someone" went through the expense of purchasing them. So we went. When we got to the show, our tickets wouldn't scan but they let us in anyway. When we returned to work on Monday & told our co-workers we went & we got in, they all burst out laughing! The tickets were fake! Those that made the tickets eventually confessed, and this story is still told in our department 15 years later.

  7. I forgot that I scrapbooked a funny story...My sister-in-law got bitten by a horse right next to a sign that said "Careful, I bite". She was trying to pet it...here is the page: http://www.scrapbook.com/galleries/967051/view/4331885/-1/0/0.html. This episode was fun to listen to and I have a lot more ideas of funny things I can scrapbook about!

  8. At the end of your podcast, you both mentioned being overwhelmed by your photos. I have a simple solution that I find works for me. First of all, I only print the photos I know I will end up scrapbooking. I have a standard D ring binder filled with empty page protectors. Each page protector will hold everything I will want to use for a layout - the photo(s), notes, sketches and anything else I want to add to the page. When I want to scrapbook, I open the binder and select what I feel inspired to work on at that time.

  9. When my middle son was preschool/toddler aged .. we found ourselves in Toys r Us around Christmas time. My son spotted a toy nativity scene. And began to whine about how he needed it. And I suddenly had a vision of my child dragging up and down the aisles moaning "I NEED Jesus! Why can't I have Jesus?" Oh my goodness... now girls put yourself in my shoes and have your small child screaming about how I'm a horrible mother for keeping him from his beloved desire for the Lord (in reality I think he wanted a plastic camel) Yeah. Kid definitely came home with that toy!! And that story is in his scrapbook

  11. I’ve been doing a Srap Gals Podcast marathon for the past week. I just about fell out of my chair listening to the horn story! Tiffany said “there are two ways to do it. I did it the wrong way”. There is not a “lol”, “lmao”, “buah haha” that can describe the laughter over here. *happy sigh*
    I have no idea what I’m going to do with myself when my listening marathon is over! I love, love, love your podcast!
