Melanie Trotsky from Beaverton, Oregon raised her son with wooden toys, no TV or video games, a vegan diet, and yet somehow her oldest son, Cole, still managed to become an enormous douche bag.
These were the first words I ever read from my friend Beth, and to say I was intrigued would be an understatement. I read on as she weaved this story of a douche bag hippie women, who raised her son in a douche bag elitist environment, only to be surprised he’s become a judgmental douche himself. Oh well, at least she has her Turkish worry beads to comfort her. Read more →
How many times have you found yourself thinking, “Man, if I could only go back and talk to my younger self.” If only I could tell them to make better choices.” We’ve all thought that. It comes with getting older.
Sure, if we could go back we’d warn our younger selves about the downfalls of not doing better in school, choosing different career paths, picking who we spend our time with better, and most certainly, taking better care of our bodies. I know I would. But what do you think your future self would say to you right now? What if the *right now* you needed the talking to? What would it sound like? Read more →
Well, June is upon us. And while that means for many people their kids will be bugging them 24/7 with complaints of being bored 15 minutes after waking up at 10:30am, and how hot it is, for a bunch of your favorite online jokesters, it means it’s time for another BlogU.
The annual meeting of many of your favorite online personalities in the Washington DC area, where we gather to talk all thing blogging, party it up a little, and let’s be honest…get away from our kids for a weekend.

I don’t where you live, or where you might be receiving this addition of more funny stuff, but where I live (DC), it has been cold, rainy, and cloudy for the last 20 days. It’s like The weather got confused and thought Washington DC, was Washington state.
Well, if the sun isn’t going to help make everyone’s lives a little better, I guess I wil…with and new addition of the funniest stuff I saw on the internet this week. Enjoy!!! Read more →
It’s no secret that when you have kids, parents can pretty much kiss the idea of sleep goodbye. There’s always a chance you might be one of the lucky ones to have a kid that’s a good sleeper right off the bat, but you’re more likely to find a unicorn or four leaf clover. And if you do have one of those kids, keep it to yourself, because the rest of us are too tired to hear about it.
My son was a horrible sleeper for the first 8 months of his life. So much so I’m surprised he actually made it past those 8 months, and that he still has two (fairly) intact parents to care for him.

The internet can be horrible. Especially right now as election season ramps up, but it can also be a silly-ass place. I prefer to find the funny shit people are doing/saying, and share that with the rest of you. We have enough serious shit to worry about. So, here’s what I found this week:
