When I heard a knock on our door at 5:30 in the morning, I was pretty confused. The UPS folks don’t usually come by until about, oh, 12 hours later than that. And while we do have one annoying neighbor, these days he saves his critiques of our lawn management for people who aren’t me. I was awake and C-Man… Read more »
This, from a female college professor who identifies as a feminist: “Who really needs another boring mommy blog about crockpots and carpool schedules?” Really?! This is your feminism? Dismissing a whole category of women’s writing like it’s a joke? Get out of the goddamn classroom before you poison our nation’s youth.
So there’s this blog called Frou Frou Fashionista, which is all about lingerie. 99% of my wardrobe consists of jeans and tank tops and all my cotton underwear is from Target, so I am not the kind of person who typically reads fashion blogs, let alone lingerie blogs.

They assemble video clips of coverage on a single issue from multiple sources so people can see how the issue was reported differently on different news outlets. This, my friends, is cool. People, including me, need to have their certainty messed with regularly…. Read more »
Our air conditioning went out last Sunday. Tons of people live without air conditioning, including in Texas, and obviously it would not have killed us to go without it for a few days, but I was still quite glad that it was fixed within a few hours of the sun coming out on Monday morning. It got me thinking, though,… Read more »
C-Man and I don’t buy a lot of decorative stuff. If you’ve been to our house, this will come as no great shock to you. Even once we finally gear up and paint the walls something other than white, though, I’d be surprised if we transform into knick-knack displaying, decorative bowl using, lots of little pictures in frames collecting type… Read more »
