- One of the best parts about the Weight Watchers Online thing is the "blogs" you can run on the site. The things that people there think might be offensive are just adorable. While seeing all the journals is nice, and a good resource, wow, a day in the world of mommyblogging would blow their fricking socks off when it comes to "possibly offensive." (Granted the community guidelines are pretty strict, but none the less.)
- Speaking of offensive, can we all be over the whole "Chinese Mother" thing already. It is a parenting book, it needs to be "radical" and I think she is really just going to town for the sake of sales. Kudos for getting a direct line to huge sales and free publicity as all of us AP(ish) whiners get going, but enough already.
- Can we also be over anything described as "radical" Side note: have you ever notice how the more "radical" someone is trying to be, the more likely that one of their arguments for the philosophy is that "everyone in ____ does it this way." So which is it then? Are you doing something new, or just doing the same old stuff and begging everyone to look at you?
- I think I may have stopped shaving my legs. Not as any political statement or anything (mostly because I think that there is no real political statement left to be made by shaving, or not, again with the not radical at all), but because I have not done so since Christmas and it just plain doesn't seem to bother me. (Or anyone else FWIW.)
- I have mentioned before how much I love my car, but when it backed out of my garage and up the hill (more like black diamond ski slope) that is our driveway in 18-20 inches of snow, I knew it was worth every penny, Knowing I can do that has pretty much revolutionized how I will survive the next three winters as a single parent. What shoveling I ask? We don't need no stinking shoveling.

Doing some traveling so here are some random tidbits I want to get on "paper" somewhere:
