An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

A Selection of Recent, Random and Wholly Unrelated Observations, Volume I

One should never participate in a spontaneous bikini wax.

If one is taking regularly scheduled potty breaks, one is obviously not spending enough time looking for full-time employment and therefore will not qualify for an unemployment insurance extension.

My dog looks smashing in styling gel and bobby pins.

People should reconsider naming their children Kemper, or Kjeldon, or Kovar, or VeLyn, or JeLyn, or Hyrum, or Helium, or Allegra. I refuse to refer to your child as Prophet Joseph, Jr.

My mom really is the Avon World Sales Leader. She so wasn’t kidding.

Some of the people who read a website and make comments on that website are COMPLETELY INSANE.

  • I grew up in and around Pocatello. I know what Lindsay means about Jell-o. My Mormon sister bragged about a recipe for a nine-layer Jell-o molded dessert. It takes about seven hours to make, and a big part of that is actual working time. I do miss Pocatello sometimes, but not the religion, and definitely not those kind of desserts. Here in Texas, the preferred accompaniment to every meal is scary orange queso.

  • Er, make that “kinds”.

  • … but aren’t we all completely insane? Mark Twain said, “When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.”

  • I went to high school with a girl named “Delicious Chew”…

  • I’m stuck on those two variations of the name “Hootie.” And I’m COMPLETELY insane? Do you really think United States Supreme Court Justice Bushrod Washington goes together well? Wait a minute —

  • Is HurgleGurgle your given name?

    HurgleGurgle, your link to Eric Snider’s web page is broken. Help.

  • Aubrey #3

    he he he he…
    I bet Chuck loves being in bobby pins!

  • I think your website is an excellent way to vent. Although, sort of demented, still a very effective method. I am 38 and think similar things about my life and the people around me. I love my family and friends, but sometimes you just have to vent.

  • Just thought I’d let ya know, you are the spotlighted site on my website right now. 🙂

  • ummm…just what exactly is a “spontaneous” bikini wax? cause i really, REALLY want to avoid those if at all possible.

  • Speaking giving names a little more consideration, I can’t understand why there are grown men named Richard who refer to themselves as “Dick”, or worse still, “Dickie”. Extra points if his last name is “Johnson”. {Immature giggle}

  • Taking part in a “spontaneous bikini wax”? That sounds like a senario for a porno movie.

  • You put styling gel on your dog and _we’re_ the insane ones? … … … … Damn straight we are.

  • thinker

    i totally agree with jason kill…..everyone is indeed struggling to compete with u.
    for a moment i just realised i was doing the same, coz i always wished i could be a writer. i have all these things on my mind i want to pen, but never quite get to it….

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
