I Got Your Funny Right Here!

I Got Your Funny Right Here!

It’s been a while since I have done one of my “I got your funny right here!” posts. It’s not for lack of finding humorous things to publish, I either keep running out of time or my S.O.S. (Shiny Object Syndrome) is too strong and I forget. That S.O.S. is kind of a pain in […]

How The Kristin Lesney-Ruiz Plagiarism Scandal Should Cause Brands To Choose Bloggers Based On Content, Not Traffic

Last week, while I was firmly ensconced in my graphic designing-got-to-finish-this-website-now-oh-shit-the-car-died-on-the-freeway-and-the-tow-company-charged-us-three-times-for-the-fee bubble, something curious happened in the mom blog world — a blogger, Kristin Lesney-Ruiz, who has had multiple complaints and police reports about her and her husband’s shady, and possibly criminal, online activities but still manages to make money and get scads of free […]

With Age, Comes Wisdom. And Black Chin Hairs. At 41. Damn.

With Age, Comes Wisdom. And Black Chin Hairs. At 41. Damn.

Today is my 41st birthday. I have been told all my life that with age, comes wisdom. No one ever mentioned the black chin hairs. Why is that? Shouldn’t all the woman books have said something about the black chin hairs we will get as we enter our fourth decade of life? Those ones that […]

I Hate February. And Lent.

I Hate February. And Lent.

Has Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Message Been Subverted?

Has Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Message Been Subverted?

Yes, I asked the question. Has Martin Luther King, Jr.’s message been subverted? Before you blurt out an answer, stop and think about it first. In a time where the Democrats have taken a great man’s legacy, who was a registered Republican, by the way, and made him their defacto mascot for all things liberal […]

Anyone Who Tries To Call Me At Home: Why don’t you ever answer your phone? Me: The Diva gave it a bath a while back and it doesn’t ring anymore. AWTTCMAH: Why don’t you just buy a new one? Me: It works fine except for the not ringing part. Oh and I dropped one of […]
