Let's talk about breasts

Yes, I knew that title would catch your attention.

I feel compelled (or maybe obligated) after I wrote about underpants to share this british advertisement for sports bras with you. (Warning, you probably don't want to view this at work.)

Be sure you "click here to see the Bounce-ometer in action and find your perfect sports bra."

You really don't want to miss it.

Thanks to Shpilkes for sharing this.

Whistle while you work

All my life I've believed that I can't read and listen to music at the same time. And since I read and write (and rant) all day long at work, I naturally assumed I couldn't listen to music at work either.

But brothers and sisters I am here to tell you: THE IPOD CHANGED MY LIFE.

Steven Jobs is thrilled. I can hear him say, "Boys, we just got us another addict. Break out the blender, it's margarita time!"

And iTunes is my new best friend. My life now has a soundtrack. Hallelujah, praise Allah (I mean Apple).

But now comes the hard part.

Which music goes with which activity? Bach for preparing budgets? Is Coldplay conducive to coding HTML? Enya for endless emailing?

Help me (Rhonda). I need options and your suggestions.

Thanks Jason for getting me thinking about this.

Babycakes invents a new disease

While we were driving around Saturday in unfamiliar surroundings (the suburbs)shopping for a new sofa Babycakes spied a sign which proudly advertised:


"Is that contagious?" she asked. "And how is that different from ITCHY ANGUS, or the chronic form of SPOTTY ANGUS?"

Panties in a wad

I have a confession to make.

Until last week, my underpants were one size too large.

Of course, dear readers, one does not discover this fact until one actually purchases underpants in the correct size and puts them on and says "Holy Jesus, these feel just like my skin."

Those old underpants went into the trash right quick.

Just thought you'd like to know.

Thoughts from a feminist

I've been thinking about two recent issues from the news.

First, the mommy wars. Is it a feminist statement for American women to choose NOT to have a job?

And second, the gender ratio in India. Have millions of female fetuses been aborted during the past ten years?

How are these two issues connected, you may ask?

The mommy wars make me angry. They say it's about choice. The so-called Stay At Home Moms admit that they are lucky that they have the money to Choose to be a mommy instead of a person. Why is it a choice for mommies but doesn't appear to be debated much in the daddy community?

And when society continues to value sons more than daughters and you mix that with another type of Choice it gets pretty ugly.

Go ahead. Argue with me. Bring it on.
