FutureNow’s Holly Buchanan asked a great question and there was no way I was going to pass this one up. She writes about an ad for women’s wear that features two male bodies in suits with balloons for heads and one female body with no head at all. She has a steel rod or needle for a head, followed by a body wearing an outfit that seriously offers no clue as to how the breasts stay in place. Holly presentsRead more…

Since so many of my readers are young and cute, I get to tell them about the horrors of growing old and grumpy. It’s fun to scare them. It’s a rite of passage to ruin everyone’s surprise. When I was pregnant with my first child, one of the senior citizen co-workers where I worked told me, “You’ll never sleep again.” I hated that she was right.

I’m big on volunteering my time to organizations and if I can’t actually be there in body and soul, I can be there in other ways. A meme going around by search marketers is a bit of a linking way of lending a hand. The idea originated at SEORefugee. I was tagged by Andrey Milyan.

They were interrupted while taking a test, and the kids were angry this boy was searched because he was a “straight A” student known to never be a problem. However, he spoke about owning or having access to guns. I thought it was an isolated incident, related to increased awareness due to the Virginia Tech massacre. HoweverRead more…

I interrupt my hectic schedule (in fact, I made a “No Blog” rule for the week) to rant about the Slate piece on how men and women work the same amount of hours a day. I hate this stuff because the averages hide the truth. The article, called Couch EntitlementSurprise—men do just as much work as women do features a study that says: In the United States and other rich countries, men average 5.2 hours of market work a dayRead more…
