I Need a JCrew Intervention
It’s getting bad, folks.
My M-I-L is ridiculously gullible
Husband: We've got new and final names for the baby. If it's a boy we're going to name him Benjamin. And the middle name will be Dover.
M-I-L: Ohhh, that's pretty. Benjamin Dover. I like that! It sounds good.
Husband: Yeah, but we're not going to call him Benjamin, just Ben.
M-I-L: Oh. Ben Dover. Ben Dover.

So I heard today about the second bullfighter* to be gored in the past few weeks. Might I just say, if you are going to get into a ring with a 1,000+ pound animal, and then proceed to hurt them and antagonize them, then this is exactly the type of thing that will happen to you? Apparently the bull who gored the fighter was killed. For being violent I’m presuming. Sports events like...
It's Wedding Week, Y'all!
And I just picked up my maid-of-honor dress- AND IT FIT!!! Thank the Lord because I was seriously worried terrified there for a second. Now that that has been taken care of, let the excitement begin!
As if I wasn’t having a hard enough time concentrating on this Friday afternoon. *And as a sidenote: That PacMan game better be there every.single.time I need to go to Google to get directions or I’m going to be seriously disappointed. Much more productive, but disappointed.

It’s 12:27am. And I am still at work. This is why this past week I have been questioning whether I really can have it all. Can I have my cake and eat it too? Can I really balance work and a family? ‘Cause recently I’ve been feeling like the answer is “not so much.” So I’ve been depressed. Because I’m so, so drained. And sick. And tired. And pregnant. But also because I went to grad...

NPR Investigates McDonald's Secret Menu, or, Why I... →
fullcredit: So apparently there are a lot more secret menu items at McDonald’s besides just the McRib. In particular, the NPR bloggers were intereted in a sandwich with a name that was unsuitable for a family friendly blog such as their own. So instead, they called it “The McRedacted:” Ian: My god, the McRedacted looks like a core sample of West Virginia. Mike: You know how if you mix all the...

Son: Grandma! I've got a surprise for you! Close your eyes.
