An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation
  • Stubborn babies = Sassy independent kick ass big people. Rough now at times but pure joy later on 😉

  • NOT a good writer .. see?

  • Coskel, forgive my senility, but is the bio about you or about the host?

    And why is there a green arm sticking out of my ass?

  • me, the host has to have something to go off of so that he can ask me questions. of course the fact that they waited until THE NIGHT BEFORE to ask for it tells me a lot: im gonna be flyin’ blind on this.

    And hey, you can see it, cause Flint’s PBS station is the only one in Michigan that will carry it. 🙂

  • Jessica – I can easily turn the guidelines into instructions.
    See me after class.

    Coskel – what show, and when’s it on?

  • Henryk, I don’t think all men suck. Just the vast majority of them. My boyfriend doesn’t suck. I think you are quite un-sucky, too.

  • Henryk_

    High hormonal state here!!! Eject….eject…..eject…boooooommmmmmmm!

  • Wow SwoosieQ. Your little boy sounds like a real trooper. What a neat little boy! I bet he will be running around like mad before you know it. And lots of kids go from doing nothing to walking – a friend of mine has a kid that never crawled but started running around one day. Kids are all different, and they do things in their own time. If I had my druthers, I would sit on my ass all day drinking out of a bottle and pooping my pants too, if I could.

    As Henryk_ parachutes to safety, he thinks to Katie b b a w shows signs on sanity and good sense! Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  • I am so happy to hear that Leta is fine! 🙂

    Spring is Sprining in Wisconsin, too! Today we had rain.. with Thunder! Things will be green shortly..

  • i wrote mows to see if anything was wrong…no answer. 🙁

    side note: I have to write a quick bio for the host of a PBS syndicated program that I am appearing on tomorrow – anyone want to help? I am, as they say, a good writer.

  • Anyone seen Mouse lately? I’m worried for the little guy, especially with his home page being _wiped out_!

    You don’t think Tifnee and Kivin…no…no, they couldn’t have…

  • giggles

    kbbaw – re#310:
    We can be very pessimistic – especially of those east and west coasters who think….

    🙂 We can be opinionated too. 🙂

  • Henryk_

    Wooooooooo…I am outnumbered here!!!! I had better get back useful employment!

  • SwoosieQ

    Heather, delurking to say congratulations on the fabulous news for Leta…

    My little boy, who is 10 mos old, is going through a very similar thing. We are waiting on the “ok” verdict, but we are fairly (fairly) sure that it is just him being stubborn… He wont roll over or crawl, but man if you give him your fingers, he will walk all day!!!

    He started out in this world with troubles though, he needed open heart surgery at 8 days old, but has had a complete surgical repair – he is 100% healthy – we are just waiting to hear if he can do all he is supposed to…

    The verdict around here is that he is just stubborn too:)

    THank you for sharing your story with the world, so we know we are not the only ones…

    Yep, day is almost over. Thank God. Wait, today is only Wednesday. FUCK!!! Two more days. At least one of my bosses is out tomorrow and Friday. That is 33% of my headache gone.

    Luckily not all men suck (just a lot of them) or I would so start pitching for the other team.

  • Why the crap do they call it the Show Me state? What is it that they want me to show them?

  • Henryk_

    Southern Fried……….life is a 2 way street. I could ask the same thing about some women I have had the misfortune to come across! Pple in glass houses etc

  • southern fried girl

    Wow, ok. It must be totally all me.

  • Henryk_

    Now, don’t start being the martyr! Sounds to me like you are a normal person, subject to some of the the trials and tribulations of some relationships.

  • SFG, it is totally not just you. And I have to say, male gyneocologists TOTALLY blow, but not literally of course, that would be malpractice. Anyway, I had to go to the ER over the weekend and this male OBGYN worked his magic on me, and he totally made things worse. Men should be banned from practicing gynecology, with their big ass hands. What the shit do they know about a period?

    Men DO blow.

  • Woot! Only seven minutes to go! Let’s talk more about men that suck!

  • giggles

    Dawners: Glad you’re here to add to the far outnumbered Missourian’s. You weren’t kidding about the good vibes being sent from the Show Me State to Utah yesterday. Yeah for Leta!

    In 14 minutes I start on my spring break (from work) – hurray!

    Ya’ll enjoy Chuck Friday, okay?

  • southern fried girl

    For the love of God, is it the end of my work day yet?

  • 25 minutes for me, Southern Fried Girl. Let’s begin the countdown…

  • southern fried girl

    While we are waiting for this last 25 minutes or so, anyone wanna let me in on the little secret of why men so royally blow? I am open to all theories.

  • Henryk_

    Southern Fried Gal……my day has just begun!!!!

  • Henryk_

    Blow………please explain????

  • southern fried girl

    I am annoyed with a male who is in my life and I think he sucks big donkey dick. Not literally. At least I do not think so. I just want to know why men do the things they do. Y’all are a fuckin mystery.

  • OH MY GOD!!! THE RANCHWAGON!!! HOLY CRAP! My friend’s parents used to take me there ALL the time. They have the best foot longs EVER!!! I TOTALLY HATE YOUR GUTS NOW.

  • And I used to live on Ford Ave, which is very close to Butler St. I hate Butler St. people. They are quite high and mighty. Although I lived across the street from some snooty people whose son was married to Gabrielle Carteris of 90210 fame.

  • By the way, Muffy. What was the name of the guy you dated from Kingston? I haven’t lived there since for 13 years (I left when I was 12) but I still know a lot of people there.

  • Henryk_

    Hmmmm…an Up stairs, Down stairs mentality exists in the U S of A?

  • That’s freaking gorgeous! Can I copy it for my desktop? Pllllease?

    A huge congratulations to you Heather and your man for the best news in life. You’re baby is perfect and stubborn. (or is that perfectly stubborn.) I’m so happy for you all.

  • Muffy

    Katie: And I love to put this out on the web, because he totally screwed me:
    DONT DATE HIM! He will use your computer to hook up with swingers and then erase your hard drive when you find out. All this before 10:15 mass. Makes me sick.
    He actually put a court ordererd PFA on me (protection from abuse) so that i couldnt tell his MOTHER (he was 41 and LIVING AT HOME)just WHY it was that we were fighting so much. That, and the OTHER girl he was dating at the SAME TIME got a little pissed that he bought me a new computer after he destroyed my old one (I faxed her the invoice – Boy was he PISSED)

  • Wow, that definitely sounds like a NEPA story. There are some really weird people living around there. Makes me feel a little better knowing I am 1500 miles away.

    But I still miss the Ranchwagon.

  • Muffy

    Okay, Katie, I used to date this guy, from Kingston, BUTLER STREET no less (where all the aristocratic hypocrites live),and this guy thought his shit didnt stink (it did), but for all his “education” he would say “acrost” instead of across. Drove me freakin NUTS! To this day, if my fiancee says acrost, as in “acrost the river”, he fixes his own damn dinner. You see, although I live here, I don’t drink the water. In fact, I said that in court once, and even the bailiff giggled. And as far as Noxen goes, yea, it’s kind of weird, and if you’re a person of color, DONT STOP, you won’t be chillin in your crib ever again. Although, if you go through town (i use that term very loosely), make a left over the bridge, and drive until you hit the dirt road, and keep driving, oh say, forever, (about 7 miles) you will find some beautiful picnic spots in the gamelands. The road is a total bitch (be prepared to stop occasionally to make sure you didnt lose a wheel bearing). It’s also a good place to get naked and roll around in the mud and be a mud person.
    Ah, Noxen. Where the men are men and the sheep are scared. (PS. I work right down the street from the Ranchwagon – don’t you envy me?)

  • I, too, would like to sign the condolences book for Johnnie Cochran. He commented here back in the day of the monkey murder.

  • They say “Jeat Jet?” in Wilkes-Barre. And they can’t pronounce their “th” in that area. Everything is “da”, “dat” and “over dere”.

  • jp

    saying yeeeeeeess to martini hour is what gets me through! That and the hopes of one day meeting pokey!

  • I am partial to Prickle and Goo.

  • I would like to take a moment and send my condolences to my beloved johnny cockrain. May he rest in peace. Who says money can’t buy happiness?

  • Did some one say martini hour?

  • Cockrain? That totally does not look right.

  • jp

    katie what is prickle and goo?

  • yay! martini hour already?

    I’ll have a glassa white whine.

  • give me a break I only made it to 6th grade.

  • Prickle and Goo are Gumby and Pokey’s pals!!!

  • jj

    See that shows what a gumby fan I am not. I just got side tracked with the whole hung like a horse thing.

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.
