For the love of God, tell me there are worse things in life.

January 21, 2012 in Vlog. Or really just the real me.

Yes.  I should be ashamed.

But I’m not.

But I should be.

Don’t leave me here hanging.


Breane Dooley January 21, 2012 at 5:13 pm

You need to do video blogs more often – LOVE it! 🙂

PS – Ben is hot. And way better than many of those twits on the show, in particular the girl I hear he has chosen.

PPS – You REALLY ate a twinkie? Why didn’t you just go buy some styrafoam and fill it with glue? Ewh. Call me if you need a ride to the ER. 😉

Carrie January 21, 2012 at 5:14 pm

I KNOW! It’s like it was gone before I knew it. I’m not so sure I didn’t eat the damn wrapper and all!

It pisses me off I’m all up on the Bachelor, too.

Karyn January 21, 2012 at 6:00 pm

No help here, don’t know who wendy williams is, and have never eaten a twinkie so I have no idea what ‘s so bad about it! On another note, my parents watch Judge Judy and thinks she rocks, so if its good for them…

Never. Had. A. Twinkie?

I’ve got one here I can ship you.

If it makes it out of the kitchen. =)

Mandy January 21, 2012 at 6:48 pm

Well, I’m with Karyn- I’ve never had a twinkie in my life. BUT, I do L-U-V me some cheap cupcakes from Wal-mart!!!!!! That twinkie you ate was probably manufactured in 1978- don’t they last forever????? HA HA

Carrie January 21, 2012 at 6:54 pm

They do. Seriously. So the one here in my kitchen will be good forever.

Or at least until the guilt is gone.

mark January 21, 2012 at 6:52 pm

Sweet video blog!

Twinkies are awesome! I’m not worried about Hostess – this is their second time round the block with bankruptcy (and they’re not bankrupt in Canada, only in the USA).

Share something with you? Okay, last night I bought the Very Best of Daryl Hall and John Oates. Yes, there’s my admission. It only made sense to buy it because one of the local telecommunication companies here has been using “You Make My Dreams Come True” in an advertisement and it’s a great song and it gets stuck in your head (also used well in the movie 500 Days of Summer). Amazon wanted $1.29 for the one song, or $7.99 for all 18 tracks! Of course I bought the whole album.

I knew there was a reason I loved you and now I know!!

My sister bought a CD a while back by The Bird and The Bee or something like that and they do a whole Hall and Oates tribute. A pretty cool twist on their songs.

But nobody, and I mean NOBODY is Hall and Oates. Damn, I see a new Greatest Hits CD in my future.

Amanda January 21, 2012 at 10:52 pm

OMG!! Your accent is thick! Haha! Mine always sounds thick when I hear myself on a recording. I record The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Beverly Hills because I don’t want to miss anything! But the twinkie…..that’s gross! And unfortunately, the really don’t last forever, so you might want to take care of that one hiding out in your kitchen.
Amanda recently posted..My Boys Take Amazing PicturesMy Profile

Carrie January 21, 2012 at 11:55 pm

Girl, I LOATHE taking pics or recording myself. So it’s a BIG deal for me to vlog. But I’ll be honest. I think I’m more “me” here than I am in real life so for some reason I kinda enjoy it.

Go figure.

I used to fly for a major airline and spent the majority of my time in the air hearing, “Oh, my God! You’re a real Texas girl! Do you ride horses and own oil wells?!?”

I can’t hide that accent if I try. =)

Maren January 22, 2012 at 9:57 am

I’ve never even seen an actual real life twinkie, let alone ate one! I’ve grown up with references to them in movies and tv-series though, so I want to eat one just to know what it’s like! 😀

Don’t do it. Not worth it.

Wasn’t one of my brighter moments.

Jamie January 22, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Seriously, you crack me up. I love reading your posts!

I’m was addicted to the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders show. I’m sad it’s over. I wanted to be one of them one day. I probably couldn’t fit my left pinky toe in those little shorts now. 🙂
Jamie recently posted..My Recipe BinderMy Profile

Carrie January 22, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Aww…that makes my day.

Not about you and the Cowboy cheerleaders, but about liking reading my crap.

(Though, my pinkie toe is right there with yours, sister.)

And I do believe we get to hug next September at the conference! Can I wait?!? HELL TO THE NO I CAN’T!!

A Boy's Mom January 22, 2012 at 3:26 pm

Your voice is as sweet as a sweet tea on a summer day!

True confessions:

I LOVE tootsie rolls. I’m quite aware they are chocolate flavored wax.
I secretly steal candy from my boys’ Halloween basket. I deserve it.
I’m a helpless addict of reality tv, I DVR Idol and Dancing and I’m dementing my boys as I go.
I also love watching Pawn Stars. And Full Throttle Saloon.

Love ya!!!!

Full Throttle Saloon I’ve never seen…I’ll be having to check that out!

Sil January 22, 2012 at 4:12 pm

I was never a big fan of the twinkie, but I loved me those Ding Dongs and Ho Hos!!!! Haven’t had one in years!! You may have just inspired me to pick some up at the grocery store…………….Just so you don’t feel so alone! I will do it for you!

Don’t know who Wendy Williams is, but if it makes you feel any better I just started watching Revenge and I am hooked!!!!

Carrie January 22, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Oh, let me warn you now…I am not the best influence on anyone!

But those Ding Dongs from years ago, in the foil wrapper?!? Uh, huh…roll the hard icing off the top, eat around the center…save the best for last!

This has got to be a sickness.

Jessica January 22, 2012 at 5:04 pm

The Bachelor rocks, even if Ben doesn’t. I don’t do twinkies however….after I had Owen in 2008, I frequently drove to work and ate an entire bag of Hostess Donettes. The white powdered ones. The bags held 24 of them. I did this many times. Shamelessly not sharing.
Jessica recently posted..Funny Faces FridayMy Profile

Carrie January 22, 2012 at 5:28 pm

It’s that guilty pleasure stuff that sometimes gets me through the day.

And honestly, poor ol’Ben could really be cute if he’d just use a little conditioner.

Maggie S. January 22, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Ben is a girl. There are bachelorettes more manly than him in that crowd.

I can’t buy Lucky Charms. I eat the whole box.

One time I opened a cake mix and stuck a spoon in it and when I was stressed I would have a bite. Or when I just walked by.

And yeah, some of the Bachelor chicks have bigger balls than the Bachelor.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell January 22, 2012 at 5:47 pm

I can’t even tease about any of it. I eat crap like twinkies way too much, and I watch a steady diet of reality tv every single day. I can’t get enough of it!

Put that last Twinkie in the freezer and eat it frozen. Delish…and yep, I’ve done that.

Carrie January 22, 2012 at 7:55 pm

Don’t tease. Cause I have still have that last one sitting on the counter looking at me.

I’m gonna do it. A frozen Twinkie.

That could really put my mind off in the gutter…but I ain’t gonna let it.

The Mother Freakin' Princess January 22, 2012 at 9:05 pm

No gutter….just freeze it and eat it…trust me.

Carrie January 23, 2012 at 11:48 am

Well, I wouldn’t suggest doing it.

However, I will be having that last one when I get home from work. It’s in the freezer now waiting on me.

My health is hoping I hate it.

wendy January 23, 2012 at 12:19 pm

your girl breane was totally right — you need to do more video blogs! “nekkid face and bedhead?” i’d let you make me laugh like i did just not once a week, easy.

and i don’t know about this Wendy Williams you speak of. i mean, i’ve seen her face but what is this quality, this je ne c’est quoi, that makes her compelling DVR material? i’m not being snarky, either; i’m straight-up serious.
wendy recently posted..Children’s toys…that aren’tMy Profile

Carrie January 23, 2012 at 1:21 pm

Pray for Breane. We work at the same office so it’s not unusual for my brand of crap to unexpectedly hit her in the elevators or something.

Wendy Williams is straight-up celebrity gossip. I’m talking the hardcore gossip stuff…LOVE it.

She was a NY dejay and now a talk show host. And she gets the scoooooop!!!

Jennifer January 23, 2012 at 1:47 pm

I can’t watch the video because I’m at work, but from the comments I’m gathering it was about the bachelor and twinkies. I don’t watch that show, but I read recaps about it online because it is like listening to good gossip.

I’ve never really like twinkies, but I can do some damage to a box of ding dongs… which is why they aren’t allowed in my house.

I can’t wait until we go to Bloggy Boot Camp together and everyone gets to hear our accents when we are together. At least then they will know it is not just me. We’ll be accent twins.
Jennifer recently posted..(Butt) Crack is WhackMy Profile

Carrie January 23, 2012 at 2:10 pm

I get the same thing at my office…sometimes I can pull up blogs (on my breaks and lunch hour, of course…ehem) and sometimes I can’t.

Kills me.

I seriously can NOT wait. September seems so far away and I’m constantly wishing my life away as it is just waiting on weekends.

And girrrrl…I can get on a box of ding dongs. Why that shit can’t be free of any type of calorie crap is beyond me.

Fashionista Era January 23, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Awww hun, well i hope you are sincerely feeling better :)) thats the most important thing..!! no clue what a twinkie is honestly, and from looks of it i will stay away hehe

btw, i loved your video. I like the fact that your always youreslf and that makes you so original trust me. That most of the pompous videos i see where girls are busy showing off their looks or style (gets on my nerves a lil sometimes, nothing wrong with it..juss same old thing)
a big hug from me!

Sarah January 23, 2012 at 7:48 pm

We saw a commercial for a fried twinkie at the fair but we swore we would never eat one. But we did eat it and we really, really liked it. We didn’t think we would like it, and we didn’t want to like it, but we did like it. A lot. I’ll bet there are programs for people like us.

Carrie January 23, 2012 at 9:20 pm

OMG…a fried Twinkie. I would have to have just one bite to simply say I tasted it.

And if there AREN’T programs out there, we should damn sure start one! =)

Elaine January 23, 2012 at 10:13 pm

I had to use twinkies as a prop when I played “Jan” in Grease in high school. I ended up getting the low sugar ones so that I could actually eat them during the show. I don’t think I’ve had one since then. Does this mean ding-dongs are going away too??!?!?!? Oh man…

p.s. you are so cute and I didn’t know you lived in A town!! Email me and tell me whereaboust you are in town! We MUST discuss our meet-up!!

I can now totally see you as Jan. That is brilliant!

Yep, I’m in ATX. NW area but that doesn’t matter….I can get anywhere around here to hug your neck!

You just let me know when!

Megan - Best of Fates January 26, 2012 at 9:23 am

Interesting (kinda) fact? I’ve never tried a Twinkie. I’ve clearly lived a deprived life.
Megan – Best of Fates recently posted..Movie Monday – Grandma & MeMy Profile

Carrie January 26, 2012 at 3:50 pm

I’m not so sure “deprived” would be the word to use.

Maybe successful life? Maybe never-had-food-made-of-totally-artificial-crap life?

That’s really more like it.

Jennifer January 27, 2012 at 8:01 pm

Hilarious. I don’t watch The Bachelor… I can’t handle it. And I never really liked Twinkies either. I liked the Hostess Cupcakes as a child. It’s all about the chocolate. And what are you asking for.. us to admits something embarrassing? My entire life is filled with embarrassing, stupid shit.
Jennifer recently posted..Momma Made it Look Easy- Share Your Awesome- Today it’s ME!My Profile

Carrie January 27, 2012 at 9:17 pm

Don’t kid yourself. If those cupcakes would have been tucked in right next to the Twinkies, I would’ve grabbed those, too.

Melssa Placzek February 11, 2012 at 9:18 pm

The MFP got it right. Frozen Twinkies are where it’s at 🙂

I’m here to make you feel better. I LOVE Twilight. I love it. I love all the books (I’ve read them each 3 times) I love the movies. I won’t admit how many times I’ve watched each of them in a public forum. I love them. I’m 41. That is all.
