GG found a little plastic Yoda in a cereal box. So she made it pretend to vomit into her sister’s cereal bowl and declare, “Sick I feel.” This quickly deteriorated into a Yoda-insult contest. (“Stupid GG is.” “Stinky Boo smells.” Et Cetera.) Ah, my kids. I feel a strange mixture of proud and appalled.
FEATURE #1. This route ain’t gonna fly, cowboy. Give it up. You know how sometimes a certain route has been blocked by a traffic jam, or a closed road, or maybe your ex on a rampage, but your GPS won’t accept that you can’t go that way?

Okay. Well, I missed pinterest Monday yesterday. In my defense, it WAS a holiday… I’m sorry, Martin. I’m so ashamed….

My neighbor’s little girl got a Bratz doll for Christmas. Unfortunately, her daughter is not allowed to play with Bratz dolls. You can look at the dolls and see why. I mean, if you thought Barbies were sexist, check these girls out! Ewwwww…. Anyways, my neighbor knows I’m more liberal in the toy department thanContinue reading “The Doll No One Wants”
Some of the “hair tutorials” on pinterest are pretty complicated. I tried this one Sunday morning. One thing I noticed right away: There’s a reason I’m not a model.
