The Dreaded Book Meme

I have to admit, I have been waiting for this one. I was finally tagged for the book meme by Nicky at A Skirmish of Wit. 1) One book that changed your life: Atlas Shrugged – Ayn Rand. I know a lot of people hated this novel, but I read it at exactly the right […]

So I said “Don’t lick the pumpkin!”

…and then I took a picture. I’ll have more pumpkin/jack o lantern pictures up on flickr later, but while we’re on the subjects of things that nobody should ever have to say, the other night I was giving twins a bath and when I was trying to explain why they shouldn’t consume their bath water […]

Cinnamon Buttcrack (and other searches)

I am still trying to calculate the scores from Friday Flicks. Who knew it would be so complicated? I am also working on a meme about books. In the meantime I wanted to share some more of the messed up things people are searching for. For example, why was someone searching for cinnamon buttcrack? How […]

Randomness Part 57

Now I’ve seen everything. (thanks Frank Sucks) I stand corrected. (Frank again)

Friday Flicks

Every Friday Kelli has a game on her site called Friday Flicks. She puts up ten movie quotes and you guess what movie they are from, who said them and the theme of the quotes. I try to play every week. Rules of the Game! I will post the week’s game every Friday morning. You […]

Five Reasons I Had a Good Weekend Last Weekend

1) Two of my long lost friends from High School came to visit me. I hadn’t seen them in eight and ten years (respectively) and it was as if we had seen each other six months ago. It was great. We had a lot of fun. 2) The Bucs beat the Eagles. The Bucs beat […]

Cards For Sorrow, Cards For Pain

I have mentioned before that Gabe and I have a tradition of giving out cards for the wrong occasion or cards in foreign languages. The goal is never to get anything touching or appropriate but to get a good laugh. Our anniversary was a week and a half ago. Unfortunately, I was sick that day […]

Fushing Feef (and other nonsense)

Those thieving bitches over at Bitacle have now stolen my stuff too (if you are reading this on Bitacle, please stop supporting them now.) I felt bad for the bloggers that this was happening to, but I figured I wasn’t cool enough to be on their radar. Apparently I was mistaken. I am much cooler […]

My Hero

There is this other mom in The Goon Squad’s preschool class (you know what I mean. Her kid is in their class). She is beautiful. She is always well dressed and fully made up. Until a couple of days ago she was really really pregnant. When I first met her I was thinking you’ve got […]

I was never a little bit country. However…

Karen wrote a post about how she used to be a big loser where she admits to going to a New Kids on the Block concert. After I got done laughing my ass off, I started thinking about concerts I have been to that might not have been that cool in retrospect. For example, one […]

Ignore this Post

If you are reading me by rss reader, please feel free to ignore this post. I am working with my traffic experiment, and I am trying to see if bolding something makes the search engines ignore it. I back dated this exactly one year. I wrote this in 2007, not 2006. ___________ Yesterday I asked […]

A Tragedy, or an Educational Opportunity?

We have another family living here with us. A terrible tragedy has befallen these people. So here is where you guys come in. Do I throw away the broken toy or is this a good opportunity to talk about diversity? Should our dollhouse people have a amputee daughter? Or would I just be saving garbage? […]
