@iceberg Several angry words crossed my lips.
@StandardTuber Related, I am going to write a satirical piece on how to feed a picky eater. For example, here is some actual advice I've read about picky eaters:
1. Don't be a short-order cook who caters to their whims. BUT...
2. Always offer their preferred foods with other new foods.
Because you want them to eat the foods you want them to eat, but you're also so riddled with guilt about them not eating new foods that you will always make french toast for dinner, anyway at least until they go off to college.
I asked on twitter, but srsly can rage induce labor?
My MIL accosted me and said I needed to take my kid to a specialist about his eating habits. He likes carbs and milk. Like every other preschooler. I was so pissed off. This is coming at me in my third trimester.
I am over-sharing on the internet and I blame my mother in-law.
Ugh I want to know why I get that hypoglycemic "feeling" even when I'm not diabetic.
I want to buy this when it comes out on DVD and have it around for when the girls in my family grow a little bit older and they can watch it and discover it for themselves.
Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, zines, riot grrrls, all those great parts of feminism's new wave were so much fun to discover.
@muddgirl Had a dollar dance at my wedding and the waiter stole all the money.
True story, I was offered an internship at the newspaper for my (then) Pac-10 school and when they asked me what I wanted to write about, I said "Anything but football." The resident football writer was in the room and laughed out loud at my comment. But, honestly, my last two assignments had been on football - either running stats for my high school's team, or writing reports on them for the local paper. It was so boring to me at the time.
Now, looking at the way sports SHOULD be written about - something inspiring, conveying an actual narrative - I would love to write about golf. Or maybe tennis. But never football.
@themegnapkin Or just downright evil, like the nurse who had to tell the woman "It was a girl."
There were a couple of comments there that went like this:
"I am pro-choice, but some of these women talk about having multiple abortions. Birth control is available - use it!"
To which I wanted to write:
"You know what else works, is RTFA. Some people should try that. If that doesn't work, there's always STFU."
But, I don't want to bother feeding the trolls there.
