That is awesome!!! gretchen from lifenut December 30, 2009 I loved this. I think I was in that pharmacy mentioned in #50 on Saturday night. Megan December 30, 2009 Ha ha! This makes me want to start on Twitter to follow them. Leighann of Multi-Minding Mom December 30, 2009 That was great! I think I’m witty and insightful in 140 characters or less…but I’m afraid I’m sometimes the only one laughing. (BTW, blog looks awesome. I subscribe, so I don’t usually click over.) zipper December 30, 2009 I busted a gut. Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah December 30, 2009 Okay, but I get to be Rob Lowe then. Mom101 December 30, 2009 I think I’m going to officially delete my entire twitter list and just follow who you’re following. But I would have to add @paulscheer, @robheubel and @michaelianblack who consistenly make me feel very, very unfunny. fruitlady December 30, 2009 I’ll never forget the night we thought we had a direct IRL line to Sween. We were swoony. Then we realized it wasn’t going to be. That was a fun 25 minutes of us pretending to be 15 year olds and Sween becoming the Jonas Brothers of Twitter. Just for us though. No one else. I mean it ladies. Back off. Aimee Greeblemonkey December 30, 2009 Crap. I even have @robheubel coming to my fracking phone. I KNEW I would forget people! Aimee Greeblemonkey December 30, 2009 And seriously. Back off the @sween. Even the @damselesque. Sugar December 30, 2009 Best list EVAH!! Boston Mamas December 30, 2009 Frikkin’ brilliant. I heart you. Haley-O December 30, 2009 So many of these made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that! Brittany December 30, 2009 This was perfection. I will add more after I reread it to my husband and re-explain what twitter is again. imelda December 30, 2009 Where do you find the time to do all that you do? Superwoman!!!! Great List! Seriously Why Can't I? December 30, 2009 Thanks for the list. I find myself reading twitter updates now in lieu of Time Magazine. Who cares what’s happening across the world, it is far more important to know that “ugly christmas sweaters” now have twitter accounts. Mamma December 30, 2009 A. I’m never going to be on a list. 2. Holy shit why am I not following any of those people? Terry December 30, 2009 I cannot POSSIBLY imagine how long it took you to crop all those screenshots so perfectly, but you’re amazing and this is amazing and YOU LEFT SOMEONE OFF!!! (???) Aimee Greeblemonkey December 30, 2009 Kelly, you would have been in my bad-ass mom list had you NOT been included elsewhere. AND you are damn funny on Twitter. You are totally like a cross-pollinator. And Terry, check Twitter. Anonymous December 30, 2009 I can’t stop laughing. Hilarious. – m bugfrog December 30, 2009 Don’t worry about it Terry. I am funniest person on the planet and I didn’t get on, either. I’m not complaining. I got my own planet. It’s a planet that doesn’t have Twitter yet. Or other people. Aimee Greeblemonkey December 31, 2009 Oh Jesus Christ! This listmaking is hard work! Greatest hits by @bugfrog! http://twitter.com/bugfrog/status/5036616645 http://twitter.com/bugfrog/status/4506755489 http://twitter.com/bugfrog/status/4409570963 http://twitter.com/bugfrog/status/3840659696 http://twitter.com/bugfrog/status/2849039524 Mr Lady December 31, 2009 In defense of the damn lists, there isn’t another mom blogger more A) unknown and B) fringey than me, and I’m on one. Of course, I had to threaten them with, “DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHO I USED TO LIVE RIGHT NEXT DOOR TOO?” to get on it. That said, this may be the greatest list of anything, anywhere. And you really need to meet my most recent ex-neighbor, @lukeinvan. You’re welcome. 🙂 Aimee Greeblemonkey December 31, 2009 Mr. Lady – I had a post all planned with YOU as Ponyboy cause you look more like him, but then you WENT AND GOT ON THE EFFING LIST and RUINED IT ALL. I even emailed Babble and told them about our former neighborliness but they said they didn’t care, so I know YOU didn’t use that excuse, SO THERE. Just kidding. They told me we could share the title since we used to live 5 feet from each other. debihope December 31, 2009 Thank you so much for including me. An honor to be in such fine company. Many of these kooks have become my good friends. Mr Lady December 31, 2009 I will get removed from the list if I can be your ponyboy. Let’s share it. I’m cool with that. Linda December 31, 2009 Just forwarded to like 50 zillion people. Who don’t do Twitter. But may understand why I read this kind of stuff online now!!! Anonymous December 31, 2009 Love the mommybloggers on the other lists, looking forward to reading all these folks too. Thanks. Nadine December 31, 2009 LOVE this list! My arm is tired from clicking “follow”! Thanks for sharing Amy. Gregers December 31, 2009 oh wow. That. is. awesome. Melissa December 31, 2009 Wow– holding back tears I’m laughing so hard! That was some funny shit. Overland Parker December 31, 2009 I’m honored to be included on your list Aimee. As a symbol of my gratitude, please take my in-laws. Ali December 31, 2009 the Outsiders of Mommy Blogs. YES. Julie @ The Mom Slant December 30, 2009 Love it! You follow the greatest people on Twitter. Momo Fali December 30, 2009 That is some very serious awesomeness. Thanks for sharing! Nat December 30, 2009 Great Tweets. Mine are much more mundane. However, I do get a kick from @mishacollins jon deal December 30, 2009 I’m honored to be on that list, thanks! And really, I did ask the pharmacy tech and she said that the number of ‘scrips for Xanax type meds do seem go up slightly around the holidays. Not that I would know anything about that, of course. I love my family deeply and am always delighted to hang out with them. :-] DCUrbanDad December 30, 2009 Brilliant list. I too want a tower of bacon. Scott Monty December 30, 2009 This comment has been removed by the author. Scott Monty December 30, 2009 These are really great, Aimee. I’m not funny on a regular basis, but once in a while, there are some good ones. Here’s my most RT’d tweet:http://twitter.com/ScottMonty/status/6477623163 Jen December 30, 2009 Love this!!! Jim December 31, 2009 found this via a friend’s email forward. So damn funny! Thanks for the laugh! Mocha December 30, 2009 You have exquisite taste. I follow fully 95% of these people. It follows that I have exquisite taste as well. I also follow YOU. So, it follows that…DUH. Elizabeth December 30, 2009 These are amazing! Have you seen http://www.textsfromlastnight.com? Slightly less sophisticated, but many of them remind me of the ones above Overflowing Brain December 31, 2009 Holy crap. That is potentially the best list I’ve ever seen. Even my husband, who is anti-everything on the internet that’s not written by video game companies is laughing. That’s a fucking seal of approval right there. Buttercupyaya December 31, 2009 All I have to say is:Oh my god, I love you even more (possible?) for posting these!!!! Dana Joanne December 31, 2009 The surge is working! The surge is working! Yeah, I got some new followers today. Thanks for including me on your list, Aimee! *Hugs*@CinderellaJoey Jenny, the Bloggess December 31, 2009 I love this. And not just because I get to be Patrick Swayze. How have I not even heard of some of these people before? kacawratu December 31, 2009 Hysterical! Thanks for sharing!! Laurie December 31, 2009 I was only on Liz’s list because I wanted to tweet her and gratuitously brag about my ability to make the perfect grilled cheese. And also to laugh about how people do things like give me car seat door prizes and mail me formula vouchers even though, hey, no kids. But if I’m going to be willing to be part of some community that will have me as a member, it’ll be the parent blog people. This way I have nice friends who drink wine with me but also always make sure I have extra napkins and I’m wearing a warm coat. Score. All up in myTwitter: @knitterpleasesecond Liz w/ @michaelianblack @freshalina live-tweets Bravo shows like the Real Housewives and makes me laugh so hard it’s embarrassing. @sarahbellum @effingboring And finally, @FakeAPStylebook is so awesome, I want to retweet everything they tweet, so follow them and I’ll feel less annoying. 🙂 iamnotdiddy December 31, 2009 Is this where I thank you for adding me to your list? Oh… well, then, thank you for adding me to your list, Aimee. lafix December 31, 2009 Honored to be included among so many of my friends on your list. James December 31, 2009 Great post! Awesome way to end the year! Lucy December 31, 2009 Thank you so much for that, made me giggle! navanax December 31, 2009 I love this list. And this website. It’s inspired me to become a mommyblogger too. Aimee Greeblemonkey December 31, 2009 N- you will be the best mommyblogger EVER. And thanks all, glad you enjoyed it. These people, and many many more, are really really great. Watch favstar.fm. Hilly December 31, 2009 Oh my my my, you’ve just made my morning super duper busy with all of this awesomeness!
