~Meeting In The Ladies Room is YUMMY! There's a month-long contest starting today at The YummyMummy Club and there are 5 chances to win a copy of Meeting In The Ladies Room. Ladies Room Lady, artist Kathleen Tennant has written an article about her involvement in the book , and about being a mom, and about being a woman (and not in that order) and the answer to the contest question is in her fantastic article.
~I'm actually meeting Kathleen tomorrow!
~Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Pretzel Bark. It's not so barky that your teeth will break and not too salty that you''ll need a diuretic. A perfect combo of salty, sweet, and dark chocolate.
~Our cat loves to go on walks, just like a DOG! To save face, we only walk her in the back yard.
Our Bêtes Noires:
~ Men turn 75 at around age 41. What age do women turn 75?
~Old Navy's use of mannequins instead of real people in their commercials. Why would sending the message that your clothes don't fit real people be good?
~Any time I try a mascara that a magazine says is the absolute BEST, it is always the worst and smells like a Bic pen from 1970. This time it was Lash Stilleto that Real Simple said was good. I could not get the smell off my eyes fast enough and it was barely noticeable on my lashes. Even with 6 coats, the only way I knew I had mascara on was that I could smell it.
~Both Winchell's and Krispy Kreme are are virtually gone, and Ghirardelli brownies are for a teensie 8x8 pan. That's ONE serving.
~Even though lately my average turn around time for responding to stuff not related to work is 3 months (sorry, life change), I'd be really happy if people who make money off me would respond to me in a timely manner. And not just when they need something.
