How insulted should I be if the top two searches that brought people to the blog so far this morning are: Tackiest Christmas Decorations Fish Emerge ...and can someone please explain that second search to me? On second thought...never mind.
Cinderella in real life – complete w/ evil step sisters!
This image floating around Facebook today says it all - absolutely classic that some brilliant observer caught the similarities: UPDATE: Just as quickly as this flew around the web, word spread that it was a photoshopped image. Which it is so I feel compelled to post this correction of sorts. Some creative soul changed the... Continue Reading →
I haz a complaint!
I can totally relate to Garfield. Not about raisins - for me, it's mushrooms. And for some reason recently I've encountered way too many of them in my food! The taste/feel of them in my mouth literally makes me want to spit them out like the image above. Why why WHY are they in so... Continue Reading →
Mirror mirror on the wall
As I was sweeping the floor downstairs just now, I hear SB say, out loud into his microphone because he is playing Xbox Live with other players "What the FUCK?!" I sigh and continue sweeping and think about how it was when I was a teen, and you think you are out of earshot of... Continue Reading →

Not that I will totally steal it from her, but I know that it's been on my mind... Continue Reading →

Sometimes stereotypes are true. Perhaps often.
It is 2010 (hell, almost 2011!!) and we live in an era when over generalizations and stereotyping are quite politically incorrect and often downright offensive. Lord knows we women sure know how to scream FOUL at blood curdling levels when ANY sort of judgment is passed on our behavior based on gender biases. We SCREAM.... Continue Reading →
Around the house
Conversation with the 25 year old over the phone: Him: "Mom, what do you call someone who uses a fake name? You know, someone who writes a book, not anonymously but under a pen name or something that's not really their own name. Is that a pseudonym?" Me: "Yes, exactly...." (thinking to myself, hmmm, wonder... Continue Reading →

I may or may not be able to post much again this week. Every time I think I can, something comes up. In the meantime though, what I worked on last week was actually for another site. I'll post it here later, but for now, make sure you bookmark or add Whatever Nation to your... Continue Reading →
