I’d Rather You Wear Fur Than Go Naked

December 21, 2009

No offense, of course.  But the number of people that I want to see naked is pretty short. But this isn’t about nudity, it’s about fur. Through no fault of my own, I have a fur coat. It’s because I’m a nice and polite person which means that sometimes I have to lie nonstop just […]

This weekend,  my kids had their karate promotion test. My son was selected for some more intense fighting and although I thought that he did really well, when he took the headgear off, I could see that he was crying.  Also, everyone who had eyesight could see that he was crying, because it wasn’t one […]

Flying with the Goyim

December 17, 2009

I’ve been feeling very lock-n-loadish. Mostly because for the first time in many years, I have to travel over Christmas. It happened before, about 9 years ago, when my daughter was 2. “Let’s go to North Carolina!” Husbandrinka said.  It made sense. His cousin lived there and his parents were in North Carolina. “OK!” I […]

I Wasn’t Finished!

December 16, 2009

Oh, I’m sorry. Did you think that I was done discussing holiday gifts? Well, I’m not. Because as I mentioned yesterday, my 11 year old daughter asked for a laptop. She’s been wanting a laptop for months and has tried several strategies to get one. Strategy: She asked for one. Result: We said no. (I […]

This weekend, I realized “holy shit! It’s time to buy Christmas gifts!” which is how I officially enter the holiday season. I am very behind this year, so I spent Saturday ordering stuff from Amazon for my son. Relax, it’s not books. I’m not that abusive. It’s Wii stuff. And “fortunately” my daughter wants “only” […]

December 14, 2009

Last week I was invited to attend a special cooking event with Dave Lieberman, who is also one of People’s 50 Hottest Bachelors and is known, among people with eyes, as the Culinary Cutie. The event was sponsored by Del Monte and Dave was going to show us how to cook with Del Monte products […]

This Week I Twat

December 13, 2009

As you may recall, a few weeks ago I decided to keep current with new blogging trends and steal ideas from other bloggers. (Yes, I am working up to full-on lying. It’s one of my New Year’s resolutions. No it isn’t. I made that up.) First, I did one of those Bloggess-inspired clusterlinkfucks of stuff […]

Oh, It Matters

December 12, 2009

This afternoon my kids and I stopped at the GAP to take advantage of their super sweater sale, during which both kids decided that they don’t want any sweaters, my daughter rolled her eyes at their exclusive Stella McCartney collection, and my son announced that he wanted to switch from briefs to boxers. The problem […]
