What The Hell Am I Watching?

Hubby and I were invited to a play last night. Our friend is the director. I had heard of the show but never seen it. He told me that I would "really, really like it." I asked if there were naked people in it and my friend said "Yes". OK then!

So this show starts off in the dark with two people having a very, very, very good time. Lights come up and we begin. Yep. They're naked. Eventually clothes are worn and conversation begins.

This show is about a man who proclaims to love this woman. I mean lo-o-ove this woman. He tries to get her to believe him and to understand the connection they have. That they are meant to be together. This is after they've slept together on their first "date"! This is only their first date!!!

She's freaking out and wants him to leave. He won't go. He doesn't even leave when she threatens to call the police. He says that if they take him away he'll just come back, she has a fire escape, he can climb in her window. It's an "Oh Baby, can't you see how much I love you? I will never leave. Isn't that great!!!"
NO!!! There's nothing great about that!

I couldn't believe what I was watching.

For an hour and a half the man is trying to convince the woman that they have a connection and that they need to stop going through this world alone. They don't need to go looking any more. They are IT for each other. (She must be amazing in bed.)

Of course this play was written by a man. A man who has a very twisted take on love. No woman I know would try to turn this kind of scenario into something romantic. This is a horror story my friend! This is a classic Tori Spelling-Lifetime-For-Women movie!

And it just gets me that my "friend" who directed this said I would "really, really like it". No wonder he and I stopped dating years ago.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
