Death by Doughnut

I unfriended my scale. I threw it out. We’ve never been real friends anyway. My scale was one of those fake friends who pretended like it had my best interest in mind but then acted like a catty little bitch whenever it had the chance. I heard a phrase a while ago that reminded me of my scale: People who believe in brutal honesty are often more interested in brutality than honesty. Yeah. There was no positive reinforcement from my scale. There was no “You had a great day yesterday!… Read More

Civil rights post: The conversation continues

Here’s another comment from “friend #1.” He emailed it to me and asked me to post it. (He actually sent this back when the conversation was still going but I was having technical difficulties and didn’t get to it until now.) I guess the reason I get upset when I hear about picketing at a conservative Christian school is that very often people go into a situation wanting to work through the differences verbally, but then if they don’t get the end result they wanted they resort to other means,… Read More

There are mice on my grapes

I just bought Disney grapes. I sort of hate myself. In my defense, I didn’t realize that they were Disney brand until I was at the register. I get distrustful when a company gets that big. Coming soon: Disney trash bags! Disney drywall! Disney multi-purpose lube! The day I have to pull Mickey’s tail to dislodge my tampon is the day that I will buy a small tent and move into the woods… where I will make friends with small woodland creatures, who will respond to my melodic whistles and… Read More

Civil rights post: Your comments

I always notify my facebook friends when I write a new blog so sometimes I end up with a big, fat discussion thread there in addition to the comments here. Since not everyone is a facebooker, I wanted to paste some of the comments from facebook friends onto the blog so I could open the conversation to everyone. (There were some funny comments from friends that I didn’t bring over, just because there’s a lot going on here. I just kept it to the main thrust of the discussion.) Also, sorry… Read More

Civil rights update and some other crap

Just wanted to let you all know that there was nothing going on with the protestors when I arrived to pick up Megan today. Cops everywhere. Protestors nowhere. We even went looking for them and didn’t see anyone. Apparently they wrapped things up earlier in the day. I’m going to touch base with some of my nosier mom contacts next week and try to get the gossip on it. I have a little disclaimer about the college in question. I don’t know for sure if they would refuse admission to… Read More

Your civil rights are disrupting the flow of traffic

 So here’s what’s going on today: I have sent my daughter to school despite the fact that there are going to be real, actual gay people roaming the school campus. I know that homosexuals will be present because the school sent a note home about it. Perhaps I should explain: My daughter’s school is located on the campus of a Christian college. Her school and the college aren’t affiliated in any way other than the landlord/lessee relationship. Today a gay rights group is planning to protest outside the college. The school sent a notice home letting us… Read More
