How Do You Effectively Discipline Your Child When The Only Thing She Truly Loves Is School?

How Do You Effectively Discipline Your Child When The Only Thing She Truly Loves Is School?

I’ve read all the parenting books. I’ve even watched SuperNanny while laughing my ass off. I’ve taken away much-loved toys, blankies, makeup and TV. I’ve tried to employ all of the supposedly “effective” parenting tactics, to no avail. I’ve spanked. I’ve yelled. I’ve threatened to duct tape her inside a closet and/or beat her like an unwanted, red-headed step-child. I’ve […]

Welcome To The 8th Level Of Hell. Or Autumn In Southern California.

Let me start out by saying that Autumn is my most favorite season, followed by Winter. Well, the idea of those seasons are my favorites. I’ve never actually lived through a real Fall or Winter. I live in Southern California, we have TWO seasons: hot as hell or cold as hell. Each accompanied by the […]

A Tampon Halloween: Decorating On The Cheap

Do you love Halloween but have no money to decorate with (who does in this economy)? Why not use items you already have around the house or can get at the 99 Cent store and fly your white trash, redneck or ghetto flag high and proud? I give you A Tampon Halloween (courtesy of Tampon […]

I’m Having Hot Flashes Because Our Air Conditioning Died, NOT Because I’m Over 35

I’m Having Hot Flashes Because Our Air Conditioning Died, NOT Because I’m Over 35

Yesterday, I received a pitch from a social media marketing site I belong to. Normally, their pitches are good and they pay pretty well, however, this one really missed the mark. I was pitched a line of menopause products and asked to have a “fun” party with all my menopausal friends to show off said […]

This Is Why Your Widowed Father Should Not Be Allowed On The Internet

Alternate title: He’s leaving on a jet plane. We don’t know if he’ll be back again.  Oh, Dad, you know she’s gonna scam you. (Sung to the tune of “Leaving on a Jet Plane” by Peter, Paul & Mary) About four months ago, my father-in-law called our house at 9 o’clock at night — he […]

Is Your Teen Addicted To Porn?

Is Your Teen Addicted To Porn?

A couple months ago, I saw a story on Nightline (ABC) about porn and teens. I was shocked. Kids are “sexting” much more often than they are texting each other and they are watching pornography like it’s the latest teen flick of the week. Nude pictures sent by young girls through their cell phones is […]

The Simple Fix For The Blogger Blog Redirection To Kunoichi (dot) info Problem

Recently, I noticed that a few blogs I read hosted on the Blogger (blogspot) platform were redirecting to a parked page for kunoichi . info. On most of these sites, you can usually briefly see a post with some variation of “I’VE BEEN HACKED!!!” as the title. On one of the blogs, I quickly hit […]

The Best Thing About The London 2012 Olympics?

They let a Time Lord carry the torch. Yes, I’m a huge sci-fi geek and have loved Doctor Who since it was on PBS here in the eighties. Shut it. Time Lords are awesome. Plus they have a sonic screwdriver and a TARDIS. *My Husband read this and says I have the decade wrong for […]

In stupid celebrity news this week, the Jackson family went crazy and began fighting each other for a piece of brother Michael’s fortune.

Black Dynamite Discovers Michael Jackson Was An Abusive Alien Hybrid

Black Dynamite Discovers Michael Jackson Was An Abusive Alien Hybrid

This past weekend, my husband turned on Adult Swim and found a show called Black Dynamite. The animation looked very similar to The Boondocks, so I assumed it was from the same creator. Apparently it’s not because I don’t think that even Aaron McGruder has the balls to do what Carl Jones and Brian Ash […]
