Jane & Alexander: Disguising Your Children Online

First off, I’d like to welcome all the SITS girls. If you don’t know what SITS is, you should, go read about them over there. They’re cute and they’re saucy and they understand the import of women joining together. I digress. When I run into girlfriends about town then say to me, “I read your blog, who is Alexander?” “My son.” I say. They stare at me blankly, puzzled. Despite the fact that this blog is just a few months old, I am not new to the realm of Mommy …

We Raised A Bunch Of Sissies: Yes, I’m Politicking

Automakers went to DC and asked for money. The government said, “no, you’ve been irresponsible. File bankruptcy and restructure.” That same day. My daughter Jane asked me for money for iTunes. “Take it from your allowance jar.” I told her. “It’s empty.” She replied. “I’m sorry, you’ll need to save more next week.” Time passes Automakers drive hybrids to DC and ask for money. “No” say the lawmakers. “But look, we’re in shiny new toys and we squished into them to and washed behind our ears and two million people …

IRL I’m Also Prickly: Microsoft BizSpark Party In Los Angeles

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the Microsoft BizSpark party in LA. I did not win the gaming console *le sigh* my children are the last two in the developed world who have been denied gaming systems. Eh, the Mac Laptops my mother showers them with will have to make due. I’m giving you a very brief recap because I’ve got a tennis match in 45 minutes I’m really busy today and I’m going to the premiere of Marley and Me this evening. Yari, I’m all about Team …

Los Angeles Wives: We Aren’t Deceptive We’re Just Making Things Pretty (another one for Mom to NOT read)

There’s some strangeness this time of year, my husband leaves for work a few minutes later because traffic is light. That means we have this weird crossover in the morning, where he’s typically he’s been gone and I’m alone to make beds and tidy the bedrooms. So there’s this moment where we both really want to enjoy the silence of the morning, but it’s clear that neither of us want the other to feel ignored. I say something wifely about him looking great nekkid and he examines the ceiling. Sweetheart, …

Conflicted/Lukewarm: Biting the Wii Hand That Fed Me

I went to a Wii Fit party today at Bliss. I love Bliss and the oxygen facial was ridiculous and amazing at the same time, I owe y’all a post. I liked the Wii Fit, heck, I like video games, who doesn’t? I also like Twinkies, Cinabons, fried chicken and Smoked Gouda; but those aren’t staples in my house. The kids want a Wii, my husband wants a Play Station with a blu ray and I want to live on a mountain top where kids run in fields rather than …
