Random List of Ridiculousness

1. Brittny and Lisa Gastineau have their own TV show and Heather Armstrong doesn't.

2. I own a pasta maker, a mango cutter, and two fondue sets, but I do not own curtains or a plain white pillowcase. I have absolutely no problem at all whatsoever with this.

3. Kevin Federline has children and I do not.

4. I am somewhat capable of fixing washing machines. I am not remotely capable of fixing my own computer.

5. I have paid to have hot wax poured on my bikini line and the pubic hair ripped out by the roots, but I seldom wear my hair in a ponytail, because it hurts.

Happy Friday!

1. A dooce TV show? Interesting idea...
2. Check. No curtains or white pillowcases. I fret about the curtains, though, because they always look so good at Cost Plus and Pier 1.
3. Yes, but would you want his children? He apparently doesn't...
4. Me too! And I used to be a high-tech engineer - you'd think that'd help, but uh-uh. Nope.
5. Me opposite. Although sometimes I'll go a whole day with a headache and only find relief when I pull out the rubber band at night. Yeah, not so smart.

Oooh the Gastineau Girls. They serve as an example of everything I'm glad I'm not. Except rich. You can throw that at me anytime!

I never thought about DooceTV either, but wow... a laugh a minute!

Arabella... help me out here. How do you get a bikini wax or do any other sort of groomin' of the pubes without the dreaded Road Rash? I can't get it right, man. Ow.

I wax my OWN bikini line. Talk about masochism.

I would watch Dooce TV, but then again I would watch a cooking show starring Arabella too, even if you don't have any white pillowcases.

The thought of Kevin Federline (and Britney, for that matter) being able to procreate more easily than I...well, that may just send me over the edge if I think about it too much.

Think of it this way: There are way more cockroaches in the world than there are exotic and rare birds. A skank ho couple like Spears and Federline reproduce easiliy because they're the cockroaches of the world. Arabella and Brooke represent something wonderful and difficult to replicate. At least....that's my view of it.

I mean..."easily". Sorry.

Clearly, there is not cosmic justice with K-Fed breeding like a damn rabbit.

I could not ever must up the courage to get the pubs ripped off with hot wax...for reasons we will not go into at this time...

muster, muster, not must...sigh at least I am not the only one doing this today.

Oh and Savannah for a meeting sounds lovely, but I was wondering about a place like, Atlanta, it is a hub for Delta and most of us could get direct, semi-cheap flights. It is a little more in the middle of the country for us westerners...Just a thought...that is me always muddling through something.

K-Fed is an embaraassment to manhood - can't a guy wear a hat the right way? Way to sink the career Brit.

As a former Atlantan, I know the city if that makes a difference to anyone but I'm up for Savannah or just about anywhere else.

I remember it being fairly easy to get to Savannah from Atlanta, if that makes a diff. Plus I'm hoping for June or later, as hopefully the baby will be weaned by then.

The mere mention of K-Fed makes me throw up in my mouth a little. Then a little more.

Jessica--ah, the Road Rash! I wish I knew of a way to avoid it. Not waxing right before your period helps, and waxing fairly regularly helps, too, but other than that, I'm afraid I'm not too helpful. :( I do, however, have an electric bikini trimmer--I think it's Lady Remington--and that's a pretty good alternative for grooming the bush if you don't want to go the wax route.

Wordgirl, thanks! That was a lovely thing to say.

June is fine, and I'm certainly open to Atlanta. Mrs. Harridan and I have been talking; we're hoping to get some kind of e-mail list going, or maybe even a whole new page devoted to B-List Blog Chicks '06. In the meantime, feel free to post suggestions here, whenever, or email me if you have my address (sorry, but I won't post it).

Wow - i don't have a Lady Remington but... hey is there anyway I can nominate myself as the Blog -B hunk, male mascot or something - I'm just trying to keep up with you gals.

And I like US as well - but its just too gossipiy to meet my mandatory testerone level.

Rock, perhaps we could set up some kind of initiation ceremony for you....something involving waxing.....

Then again, anyone who reads People is all right with me.

I'm still stuck on a Mango cutter??? What the heck is that?

Debbie--I am planning an upcoming post that will illuminate this...stay tuned!
