You guys on Team Francis understand your leader is Kim Jong-il, right?

In a stunning turn of events, most of you decided to be on Team Francis. This sentence will only make sense if you read yesterday's post, so just give up  and go there now.

Okay. Really? Team Francis?

Kimjong

I took this photo seven minutes ago. It's not like I had to go in the archives for it. But okay. You pick the team leader you want. It's no skin off MY nose. Could be off YOURS if you get too close to your most excellent leader, though.

Marvin's grandmother painted that picture in the background. I like it. Everyone always says it's a picture of Jessie, but now I can't remember who Jessie was. Oh. I just asked Marvin and he said she was their maid.

Their maid. We had a maid, too. I called her "mom." I do not know why Marvin picked such a low-falutin' gal such as myself. But, you all picked Francis, so I cannot figure out anything.

I also like the crumbs of food surrounding Francis. For some reason he kind of sheds food. He reminds me a little of the "wafer thin mint" guy from Monty Python.

And I feel terrible, because Tallulah and Winston did not get many votes. It is sad to be the middle children, I guess. I wouldn't know because I'm an only child. And I was only grandchild on one side. Hello.

What, you didn't know I was the center of the universe? Salvador Dali wasted all that time at that train station, thinking IT was the center. Hadn't met June. You'd think he'd have noticed the sun rising and setting on me.

Really, in my opinion, I was not that spoiled or doted on as a child, but then again I don't know any different. I had a boyfriend in high school/college who was the youngest of eight, and during all three of the birthdays I spent with him I think his parents remembered his birthday once. They also didn't attend his high school graduation because another brother was getting married. So maybe I don't know from how good I had it.

My mother, at one point, made a rule that everyone could only get me two gifts each. I remember getting presents from all of my grandmother's pets, her plants, Captain Kangaroo…

But now really. You know me. Okay you don't, but you read me every day. Do I seem materialistic to you? Am I talking about how I crave that new–that new–okay. I was gonna mention a car, but I can't think of any. Once in LA I almost ran into a Lamborghini, and when I got to my father's house I said, "I just almost ran into a $50,000 car" and he had to explain Lamborghinis cost about $300,000. Me too. That's what I cost.

Three hundred thousand dollars. For a CAR. I do not understand car things.

Anyway, I guess I really had no point today. Except to marvel at Team Francis people. Oh! And in case you didn't read the comments, DCRmom, of the famed DCRDesign, is making buttons for us all! Those of you who voted for Team Francis, I will email you a Team Francis button, Team Junes will get a Team June button, and so forth.

Don't ever say June never gave you anything. Other than that odd rash.

  2. I think it was the fact that you put “God forbid Team Francis”. I’m a rebel and when someone forbids something, I feel the need to do it. I totally blame you.

  3. Good morning, June.
    I thought your painting was The Flying Nun.
    Can’t you just imagine the maid posing for it, fretting that she was getting behind in her polishing of the silver?
    Hey, if you win the Swiffer Contest will you be doing commercials with a mop that is pining for you? I think your readers could come up with some hilarious scenarios!

  4. I can think of nothing snarky to say this morning so I’m gonna give it to you straight…
    I don’t care what team I’m on because I love you all.
    Therefore, I’m voting for you all.
    So, give me all the buttons.

  6. I’m definitely on Team Tallulah. Because I love my mama, get a little nervous of things like piers by the lake where one could fall in and drown in the water, and am very afraid of loud thunderstorms.

  7. It WAS hard to choose a team, but I stand by my choice of Team Winston. I love his ‘tude. The rest of you just have cute on your side, although you do have the advantage of big hair (which I resent, as I am of the very-little-hair persuasion and that is possibly why you did not get my vote although please don’t hate me and ban me from your blog and yes, thank you, I do love a run on sentence once in a while).

  8. Speaking of morning people, as I dragged myself out at the CRACK of 7:30 this morning, patting myself on the back for being an early riser, then went to put the dog outside, I noticed that my neighbor is already dressed! and outside! working in her yard! At 7:30AfreakinM.
    Thus, why I chose Francis. I’m so glad I read the first post and voted Francis before I realized that it’s Cool to go with Francis.
    Almost peed myself with the Kim Jong-Il reference and the photo!!!
    Thanks for starting my EARLY morning off with a good laugh. Look it’s already 8:30, I’m so productive!

  9. I want a real button! Have you seen the movie UP? Oh, it is so sad and sweet. Anyway, the little boy in the movie gets an Ellie badge. I want a Team June badge. (I will still accept my virtual badge from DCRMom – thanks JoLynne). Team June all the way! By the way, only children rock! According to me, I was not spoiled. According to everyone besides me, I was spoiled rotten.

  10. Coming from yet another only child, Junie? We were both spoiled rotten! Seriously? We wore mathching outfits, had matching toys, matching bathing suits! Spent summers in your sand box or in our pool. We did anything and everything we wanted – including sneaking to Stacy’s house to see Spooky’s new puppies! Ahhh, the life of June and Pal!
    And, frankly, I think people voted for Francis for fear that if he did NOT win, he’d kick everyone’s A**!!! He’s a testy little thing, isn’t he?!!

  12. I want dual citizenship on teams Tallulah AND Winston; I wouldn’t want to hurt either Tallulah’s or Winton’s feelings. Remember how humiliating it felt being picked next-to-last for dodgeball? (or have I disclosed TMI?) I digress. Humiliation on the webosphere is worse. June, I do believe this might count as cyberbullying.

    Also, I know you’re supposed to tell everyone you might have given that rash to, out of courtesy, but I should point out that they have charming little cards for that now.
    Well, maybe not charming so much as funny. If you’re not getting them.

  16. Oh my goodness! I missed June for a day and it was the day I became FAMOUS. I’m feeling so important right about now.
    I read all the comments, and I’m very sorry about the lack of long sleeves and pink Team June tshirts, but I’m just too darn lazy to go make more varieties. Therefore, I suggest you either wear a long sleeved undershirt or wash your June shirt with a red sock depending on your sartorial preferences.
    FurryGodmother, yes, I specifically made a Lula shirt for Zali. Accidental Dogs #1 and #2 are both big Lula fans but not tshirt lovers. They prefer haute couture.
    I am on Team June. Accidental Baby is on Team Marvin in a big way. This can cause issues.
    To the topic at hand – June, you are hardly materialistic. Someone materialistic would not have shorty bookshelves and send themselves broke so their dog can have daycare, and have a blog called bye bye buy. So there.

  18. Rock on Team Francis! I can so identify with Francis…fluffy body(no,not FAT but fluffy), claws, and the moustache–mine from menopause thank you very much. In my case this condition also creates the famous “charming to cut you” mood swings. I don’t know what Francis’ excuse for that but that’s mine and I’m sticking to it.

  22. June, I hate to break it to you (not really), but you may not be the only center of the universe. See, when I was a child, my mother found it necessary – and often – to tell me that the world does not, in fact, revolve around me. I didn’t like this fact, but because my mom said so – and often – I accepted it as true. Until we went on vacation to Orlando. I think I was 19 years old, and we were on our way to Sea World or Disney World or some world, and from my seat in the rented van, I saw it: a big ol’ church that had a sign in front, reading, “Mary, Queen of the Universe.” I begged my dad to stop and take a picture, but he’s more of a “let’s just get there” guy than a “let’s stop at every exit and take pictures” guy.
    But ever since, it’s been a family joke – clearly my mother was wrong. And as the queen of the universe, the world does, in fact, revolve around me.
    I’m sure you’re wondering, so I won’t keep you in suspense. Yes, I did find this shrine while in Orlando a couple weeks ago. And yes, I most certainly did take a brilliant picture. It will be included with all my Christmas cards this December.
