Feeding Children Garbage, Literally.

The kid wanted pizza.  But they were sold out!  So the three different adults at one school decided the best thing to do would be to fish around in the trash, find some pizza, and give it to her. 

It sorta tasted funny, she complained.

Worse?  She's diabetic and somehow this particular pizza was what she was supposed to have.  Guess they couldn't save one for someone with medical needs.  Awful.

Even worse?  The parents are sending this kid to school again.  Because yeah, they should really trust that staff with their child's life every weekday.

And We Criticise the Duggars.

A 24-year-old man has fathered at least 16 babies via surrogates, and since he's rich?  He wants to keep having  many as possible.  In fact, he planned to have so many kids that it would help him win elections. 

Ok, so he's a nut.  But I'm not sure he's done anything illegal, and I don't see why they've taken his children from him.

Iowa Open

Ok, so Rose lost every game.  But she had a great time in the Rated Beginner section.  Emperor played in the Reserve section.  We got to see plenty of players we don't normally run across.  Still sorting the laundry from our trip.  :)

Why I'm Not Shopping at Lands' End

Ohh, I was a great customer.  You really can't beat Lands' End for nice, reasonably-priced, fashionable girls' clothes that don't make your kid out to look like a Hoochie Mama.  I bought tons of stuff there over the years for all my children and sometimes even for myself.

All that changed recently.

I've been too embarrassed to blog about it until now.  You see, as a special "gift" for spending over $100, Lands' End apparently signs you up for a magazine subscription unless you opt out.  I must not have seen the fine print and soon after my last order, I received a copy of Self Magazine.

It's a glossy magazine with health tips, anorexic models, cheesy star interviews, fashion reviews of crap you will never buy, and so on.  And.  This particular magazine?  Had a product review.

Of vibrators.  VIBRATORS!  I couldn't even bring myself to read the article that had fireworks and the word WOW in the title.  D had a field day with it - oh!  Are you reading your magazine right now?  I hear they have (loud voice) great product reviews inside! 

I called Self to cancel, and they said they would.  The magazines are still arriving months later.  I also called Lands' End to complain and got totally blown off, as if it is just my problem, guess you didn't look at the fine print, sucks to be you and have a nice day.  No real apology whatsoever.

So this article in today's Kansas City Star does not surprise me.  Now they're sending out soft porn to all the guys.

What I Really Need to Buy

Pink swimming goggles.  For dogs.  Recommended by vets.  I don't know why I need to buy this, but this is a screenshot of one of the "products I might like" on Amazon.  Also?  Apparently?  Underwear.  I need yellow granny pant underwear.  Yellow.
