Randomness #234

According to a recent survey conducted between November and February on Twitter (so you know it's scientiftastically reliable) people have been swearing more since the recession. Huh. If swearing weren't so uncouth I would probably add a pleasant MoFo and SOB/Whore into almost every sentence. Can't help it, I admit to liking the sailor talk.

When I was a kid I liked to watch Mark Russell on PBS. I'm quite sure my parents feared playground beatings on a daily basis. As it was no one would share a locker with me because of my political dorkiness.



Kiddie spas annoy me like a sharp piece of barbed wire stuck in my craw. When I pass by the one at my local mega-shopping-plex I want to picket it and/or grab the girls inside and teach them about self-worth being about more than your complexion and shade of toe nail polish. All this at a second grade level. It's frightening people. I can't even discuss what I want to do with the parents who take their kids to places like this.

  2. Didn't know there was such a thing as a kiddie spa. Shows how much I get out huh? But to be perfectly honest if my 9 and 10 yr old girls knew about this place, they would beg to have their birthday parties there. They are so into that stuff at home. But my 8 yr old has better things to do with her time, like taking a cleat to the face protecting her soccer goal.
