Sharktopus vs. Mermantula

I am so excited about Sharktopus vs. Mermantula, I can hardly wait.I keep calling it Shartopuss or Sharktopolis, but that’s because I’m me, and words don’t come out right sometimes. It’s my brain’s way of saying it’s smarter than me.I still occasionally say: "cup-o-my-chino" instead of cappuccino, but I blame that on my unsophisticated upbringing in a town where cows mooed at us during football games.(Ok, it wasn’t that bad, it was called “Champion Township” after all.)...more

Why I Hate The Elf On The Shelf

I'm not happy about this post. I love mocking ridiculous things, but I feel most comfortable poking fun at stuff I like. Things like my college football team, my kids' quirks, my brother's ability to get free stuff from anyone he meets, and how my mom identifies herself by name when she leaves me a message. "Oh, hi Amy. This is your mom. Susan." My favorite target is myself. But today I turn my disdain outward, to a society that complains about consumerism and too many commitments, but spends $30 dollars for the privilege of managing the "magic" of a cheaply made stuffed elf during the busiest month of the year....more
