Tinkle, Tinkle a great big jar...(and giveaway)

No, I have no idea how you can logically link those two things together in a post title.

But I did it.

Because there is no logic here at Jenny Matlock ... off on my tangent.

There are only tangents.

And sometimes weird posts.

And this might be one of them.

Or not...

OK.

You know how everyone has been talking about diet plans and loosing weight.

I think I might have discovered a diet breakthrough and an easy way for everyone to loose weight.

Earlier this week I had to do a 24 hour tinkle test.

I know how strongly some of you feel about calling things by the right name so although it was a little uncomfortable for me I am following your wishes.

Tinkle.

There! I said it again.

OK, so anyway for 24 hours you collect your tinkle and you keep putting it into this big container and then you take it back to the lab for them to do heaven-knows-what with.

And as fascinating as that is HERE IS THE IMPORTANT PART!

In 24 hours I tinkled 6 pounds and 4 ounces!

How do I know this?

Because I weighed the big container on my postage scale of course!

Oh, don't go ewwwww.... it's not like I tinkled on the container. It was all contained AND I washed my hands thoroughly after each tinkle addition.

So I'm thinking if I just tinkle every day for, oh say, 8 days that would be a loss of almost FIFTY POUNDS!

Holy Tinkle!

That would be wonderful, wouldn't it?

And all I'd have to do is tinkle! Hooray! Go me!

...

...

Oh, wait...

hmmm....

I already do that every day...

hmmm...

OK...never mind.

Forget about my wonderful plan.

But don't forget about my wonderful giveaway today because what goes better with a tinkle post then a giveaway for this! Yes, it is a little box of Valentines Candy.

And it was purchased two days after the tinkle test so you don't you worry your pretty little head about a thing here.

All you have to do is be a follower and comments from this post, my mornings announcement of the Thursday winner post and last nights Liar, Liar post all go towards the pot.

Ha! Get it! See how I tied that in to my earlier picture? I am soooo cool like that!

So put your comments in the pot (still cracking myself up here!) and good luck.

The winner of this drawing will not be announced until Saturday morning.

Cuz I have something important to do today.

And, no, it's not tinkling.

Sigh.

if only dieting worked that way LOL :D

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

-chuckle- I'm not gonna' touch the tinkle, with a 10 foot pole. But I am going to address another issue.

Guess I need to explain why I do NOT leave comments on give-away-posts. It's not that I don't like the give-aways. It's that I've never roused myself, to do a give-away. -sighhhhhh-

I've gotten ready to do so. And never followed through with it. So I know I am *hopeless* at doing this. And I just accept it, about myself. Like I accept that I don't do crafts or go to flea markets or the like. 'Tis just me. And being just me, is fine.

But I simply can NOT enter and maybe win any give-aways of other bloggers!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you understand....

Isobel said...

This was a very funny post! Not sure if I would be brave enough to do whet you had to do... Funny enough I am brave enough to not care changing my baby's tinkled nappies! Go figure?!

Julie Schuler said...

Six pounds four ounces! Wow! You can't learn that kind of stuff just anywhere! That's very interesting!

After I read that, it sounded sarcastic, but I assure you it's not. I love all anatomical information.

Packrat said...

I was laughing so hard that it made the dogs bark. Thanks for making me smile.

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

That is a lot of "tinkle"!

Linda said...

So I can safely say I loose weight each and every day! Works for me!
Love the tinkle post! LOL Hey candy? Yes CANDY! I'm in!

My name is PJ. said...

Excuse me, Matlock......when are you ever going to get around to showing us pictures of your father's party? I mean, did I miss them? I could have missed them; I'm like that. But I don't really think I did. Last I knew you were stringing us along mercilessly.....

oh, I'm sorry....this isn't the suggestion/complaint box? Geez, I keep mixing things up over here. Pardon me.

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

I had to do that test after I passed a kidney stone. They told me I don't drink nearly enough water.

Jess Herbig said...

Just a side note. My friend tore herself up having her baby and the doctos made her do one "tinkle test" a week for almost 2 months to make sure everything was fixed ok! I don't remember her weighing it though.... but the tinkle diet worked for her!

mbkatc230 said...

Geez Jenny, this made me laugh so hard that I almost lost a couple of ounces (if you get my drift) If only it worked that way, I'd be Kate Moss emaciated in no time. I meant to say svelte, but I'm mean that way when I'm hungry. Kathy

Kayren, Pink Daisy Girl said...

I was able to get past the tinkle because of the chocolate. It's a food group.

Deb said...

oh Jenny......you are too funny....

Nezzy said...

Now I can't decide to go tinkle or grab some chocolate because heaven knows it wouldn't be prudent to do both. Hummmmmm! Heeeheehe!

Have a great day and a fun Valentine's Day! :o)

LuLu Kellogg said...

Jenny, you crack me up! I love your wit and humor!

Happy Heart Day♥

Theresa said...

Tinkle, Tinkle little Jenny,
Let me win, I'll send you a penny:)

Cute post! I am a follower! You make me laugh! hehe

Cindy (Letters From Midlife) said...

The pee diet. That's one I haven't tried.

But candy is good for the soul so please enter me into your drawing and this time use the random number generator so maybe #18 comes up the winner.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I think I prefer the chocolate diet! I'll just jump on the Wii a few extra times when I win:)

You are a goof!

Sue

alexandrea said...

LOL! I swear I seem to ..tinkle...all the time...I admit I'm curious how many lbs a day, but unless a Dr. orders me to, I will abstain!
As chocolate has caffeine, I bet it acts as a diuretic a bit, so I suppose the giveaway encourages us all to use the bathroom :o

mrs. c said...

As we get older...it is necessary to tinkle more and more often and sometimes I just barely make it. That was the case when I read your post!! You are simply a hoot!

Hi Jenny
Yep, been there, done that, got that T shirt. My worry was the container wasn't going to be big enough. Are you going to have the lets see if THOSE muscles work bit next?

Catherine said...

Oh, if it were only so easy to lose weight. LOL!
Hope you have a great day doing whatever it is you are doing!
Blessings,
Catherine :)

Justine said...

Ah, tinkle collection. One of life's wonders. It must be, 'cause you wrote a whole post about it and made me laugh. Wow. Over 6 pounds of pee, huh?

So? What did they say about your tinkle?

Justine :o )

Jocelyn said...

Too funny..who would have thought you have that much TINKLE!!!!

Had to one of these tests too and I wondered WTH do they do with all this P--!!!!!!

Have a great weekend!!!

Darcie said...

This so reminded me of the song I use to sing when my kids were potty training. Tinkle, tinkle little...() won't you come out and go potty. Hey, it worked.

Thanks for the chance for the yummy chocolates!

Lovin' the song that is playing.

Lisa said...

That is funny!! Who'da thunk it? 6 pounds!!

So sweet of you to offer us chocolates:)

Mari said...

Thanks for doing this test, so we could all have that info! You are so thoughtful! Thanks for doing another giveaway too!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I am already on this plan as well, and it is not working. I even get up extra times in the middle of the night to help, to no avail.

Brenda said...

Well I am sure if I had to tinkle I would have been tinkling all the way to the ladies room after reading! You are sooo cute!

I've had kidney stones ( about ten in each kidney ) for the past two years ) but, after two lithotripsies, they haven't been able to break them up ( they're located in the lower part of the kidneys. I've had to do several 24 hour urines - such a hassle since you pretty much have to stay home!

All My Yesterdays said...

Ummmm...I think one of my babies weighed that much (O:

I know I've already won something, but whattheheck, I'm here again. How could I not be...you're too dang fun!

Diana said...

Tinkle, tinkle little star! Sorry that's what popped into my head! Boy if only we could lose weight that way, I'd be so skinny! Hope your tests come out well Jenny.
Love Di

VictoriaS said...

If this tinkle thing really worked, as much as I go, I should be pencil thin. I'm not! I still feel like the 98lb. girl that graduated from high school but when I look in the mirror, she sure looks DIFFERENT!
I NEED CHOCOLATE!

Petite Little Bee said...

Crystal said...

You crack me up. Too funny. I really wish there was a tinkle diet. I had to do the 24 hour urine thing a few years ago AND had to work that day... I had to stick the big red jug in the refrigerator at Sears, where I working part time. It was quite interesting. Made for some good lunch talk. LOL.... Hope everything turns out okay~!!!

As I sat in Dr. Oz's audience and listened to all his wonderful information I realized I really have to lose weight and become more active. So aS MUCH AS I'D LOVE THAT CANDY PLEASE MAKE SURE I DON'T WIN IT! :-)

Yes, I did manage to go to Martha Stewart show once, about two years ago. Tickets are so hard to get for her show. I went on the one day she didn't give anything away...so disappointing ..lol

A friend of mine mentioned 2012 last night to me and it's the first I heard about it so I jumped on here out of curiosity. I think it's kind of sick and sounds like a bunch of skeptical jargon.
I choose to live every day like it is the last because let's be real, WHO THE HELL KNOWS what is going to happen or when it's your time to go on. The past is history, the future is a mystery and now is a gift, thats why it's called the present. It's not healthy to sit around and trip out about when you will die. Stop wasting your time you have now.
