Don’t be a fool

by Meghann on April 1, 2011

April Fool’s!! - I intend to abuse your kind, trusting nature for the sake of my own moderate, short-lived amusement

No, I didn’t get a cat.

No, I didn’t start eating banana.

And No, I’m not in CA. πŸ™‚

Monica from Run, Eat, Repeat and I thought it would be funny to switch blogs for the morning.

You can read about my real breakfast on her blog here.

I should probably also admit that Derek and I are in fact, NOT engaged.

Sorry Mom! I know, it was a very cruel joke.

Though, no one believed that one anyways.

No fun. No fun at all.

(Side Note: I was ‘engaged’ on Facebook for less than 5 minutes when these ads appeared on the side. Too funny.)

Of course those pranks don’t even compare to Wealthy Tipping Point, Gmail Motion, or Starbucks Mobile Pour. I love Aprils Fools! πŸ™‚ - To avoid confusion, I'm waiting until tomorrow to tell you I'm pregnant
In real news, I had left over pizza for lunch.

AND I’m in the midst of cleaning the condo top to bottom before my little sister and runner arrive. Yay Family!!!
Have you been fooled today?

I love how no one believed you on FB! Hahaha πŸ™‚ Too funny!

True story: I didn’t comment on your post this morning because I had no idea what you were talking about and I didn’t wanna feel like an idiot asking about your “new cat” haha!

Like I said on twitter…you better watch it with Derek today…haha! Joke could always be on you πŸ˜‰

Ok I was feeling really dumb going back and reading your post from this morning — totally missed the CA part and I was so confused by the cat!!!!

You fooled me!

8 Silvina April 1, 2011 at 12:50 pm

Hilarious! I love Caitlin’s new blog, The Wealthy Tipping Point. Too funny, you guys!

9 Ashley April 1, 2011 at 12:58 pm

I actually didn’t notice you switched blogs, I just thought you switched pets. :/ I’ve been fooled.

10 Dori April 1, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Haha I knew the banana was fake! But the rest of the bowl looked real for you. Funny one.

You have my permission to use my last name if you ever wanted to for things like screenshots!

At least she blurs you out…just in case. I get put out there, no questions asked. =)

12 Anne @thefitbridesmaid April 1, 2011 at 1:08 pm

I thought about pretending to be pregnant, but with less than two months until our wedding, I didn’t want to tempt fate.

woah – I totally fell for the blog switch! I thought I’d missed a post about you looking after some cat called Vegas, so I just continued as normal LOL! I didn’t even bat an eyelid when I saw a comment asking if you’d switched blogs…I just thought they were a but barmy πŸ˜›

The minute you change your marital status on Facebook from “engaged” to “married” you start seeing baby product ads. I wish I was kidding.

Nope, I haven’t fallen for anything but I have to admit that I kind of fell for Caitlin’s tweet on Tuesday haha.

I totally just thought that my Google Reader wasn’t working. nice job!

21 Kate April 1, 2011 at 2:10 pm

Why doesn’t Derek grow some balls and purpose already. That’s how men lose good girls. I sense some serious commitment issues.

22 Teacher Girl April 1, 2011 at 6:04 pm

I second this. I am totally confused as to how being engaged was a joke. You two have been together forever and just moved in together. What gives? Sorry to blunt.

24 emily April 1, 2011 at 10:23 pm

Wow, holy crap that’s offensive! There’s no prescribed timeline, people should get engaged on their own terms when they’re good and ready (and I say that as someone who got – happily – married at 21).

You TOTALLY got me Meghann!! That SIAB looked so much like yours that I really thought it was you. I figured the kitty was Derek’s!!

26 Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me April 1, 2011 at 2:19 pm

The sad thing is I totally didn’t notice. I thought I just missed something somewhere about you getting a cat. Didn’t notice the CA on there either. LOL I am obviously so observant.

Haha-great switch πŸ™‚ The gmail and wealthy tipping point are both awesome ideas too- love the pizza idea πŸ™‚

29 Kristen April 1, 2011 at 3:20 pm

It’s funny that I didn’t even realize it wasn’t you until the cat thing! Looks like I don’t pay very much attention to detail!

Ok. Didn’t even catch on to the CA, or the banana thing, but the cat totally got me. I kept thinking who the heck is Vegas. I almost was going to do a search for him in your blog history (but didn’t!) Congrats, many tried really hard to day to get me, but you are the only one that had me fooled πŸ™‚

31 Errign April 1, 2011 at 5:26 pm

I was such a skim-reader this morning that I didn’t even notice the other stuff. I assume the cat was Derek’s haha!

And the someecard about pregnancy is hilarious πŸ™‚

Fun jokes! My mom and I have a little running gag with some coconut rum (I won’t go into details) but other than that I haven’t really been fooled. Love the green bean crunch too…in 2 meals today!

Haha! That was a good prank πŸ™‚ I was going to tell my parents that I’m pregnant, but seeing as how I’m single, they probably wouldn’t think it was very funny…
