I’m Right, You’re Wrong: On Your Period, Lass?

March 19, 2012

It’s time, once again, for I’m Right, You’re Wrong. A few weeks ago, my sister Mouthy Housewife Wendi tackled the issue of what to do when your friend refers to menstruation as “being on my period.”  Some sick shit, right?  Well, no sooner did that happen than my friend and homosexual-American Peajaye and I almost […]

Dear Fresh Diet

March 18, 2012

Dear Fresh Diet, It’s been five days since you stopped magically appearing at my door and I miss you. Five days that I have had to make my own breakfast, lunch and dinner. Five days when the kids asked “do we have any snacks?” I had to sigh and pretend to look for something nutritious […]

Here is a conversation that I had with Mama about the high school that we are considering for our daughter for next year. Mama: It sounds good school, except I read they have gangs. Marinka: Well not anymore. That was like in the 70s. Everyone had gangs back then. Mama: Where did gang go? Marinka: […]

Things That I Wondered About As I Read The Hunger Games

March 10, 2012

So I just finished reading The Hunger Games and am now reading the second book in the trilogy. I love, love, love it, but some things are driving me crazy. This post has spoilers. Not so much about the books, but about how my mind works. Or “works”. 1. Why aren’t more people named Katniss? […]
