The Absurdities Just Keep on Coming

I saw this book at Barnes & Noble last night. I think this is the first book I’ve seen that actively targeted the tween eating disordered market. Perhaps they can bundle it with a nice volume on cutting from the how-to section. THIS, on the other hand is superfun from It’s an interactive map […]


How To Be An Awesome Blogger.

Blog.   Seriously. I haven’t posted since July 22. Two weeks. No excuses. I have surely had time to write at least something brief.

A Very Shiny Mother’s Day

This may have been my favorite mothers day to date. Our son and a bunch of his friends called me from Sandy Eggo and yelled Happy Mothers Day, then he made me tell them my hipster joke. * We drove the four and a half hours to our daughter’s college to pick up a carload of her stuff and hug […]
