Activision Update

I’ve spoken to three people at Activision. Each phone call has been kinder than the one before. These are nice people making good products. Well, except one. Y’all are going to say that I’m biting the hand that feeds me. I’m sure that’s true to a degree. I loved giving out their products at BlogHer, my kids love their games. I can’t reconcile myself with the multiplayer gaming aspect. I understand that someone needs to be the bad guy, but there are no Cowboys and Indians. There are no Klan …

Anti Altruism: I Want Cupcake Credit Damnit

During the 4th of July weekend my dear friend Michelle Lamar’s daughter had an emergency appendectomy. Had Michelle been here in Los Angeles, I would’ve stopped by her home or the hospital to help somehow. Since Michelle lives smack dab in the middle of the country I decided to have cupcakes delivered to the hospital room.

Four Steps For Soccer Moms

Later this afternoon I’ll be taking my kids to their first soccer practice of the season. Well, maybe my kids, maybe one kid? I’m not 100% sure who has practice and at what time.

Activision Corners the White Pride Market

I’m a Mommy Blogger. I’m a Jewish woman with a Jewish last name who spends her days talking about parenting, marriage and womanhood. Occasionally I talk about the products my family uses in and around the home. Occasionally I’ll mention a video game on Whrrl, Facebook or Twitter. I still talk about Monsters vs Aliens and what a wonderful time my son and I had at the movie. I gave away a few copies of the games. It makes sense for Activision, EA and the like to send me video …

Friday Confession

With PMS comes an uncontrollable urge to scrub my home. It should be completely predictable, but each month as I cry and cleanse I’m startled. It’s been 25 years of cleaning and menstruating and it shocks me every month.
