Newsiness

Newsy things I’ve been sitting on:

Did you know the Asso.ciated Pr.ess is going after bloggers for using their words? For more, see this post on OurAdopt by AngelaW.

Last month, my sister, Sheri, guest posted for me, with a resulting hue and cry for her to blog more.

Well, now, she is. Head on over to Oracle Sun and add her to your reader.

You must, MUST click over to this Mile High Mamas post (even if you don’t live in Colorado). Imagine 2022, a bunch of blogger offspring in their dorm room, chatting about their moms.

But unless you’re ready to buy a new computer monitor, make sure you’re not drinking anything.

And, for you Colorado mamas and will-be mamas: Mile High Mamas has just issued a Save-the-Date alert. Girls’ Night Out will be September 12. I’ll put up more details as they become available.

In case you didn’t catch Lollipop Goldstein‘s (née Mel) current BlogHer post, which addresses the Gloucester Teens’ quest for unconditional love, head on over. I will be referring back to this post in a few years with my own daughter to help her understand the fantasy vs the reality of bringing home a baby.

Dooce also blogged about Land of the Lost. But I did it first. Neener neener.

Do I love or hate WalMart? And have you gotten your TV converter boxes yet?

Happy weekend, everyone.

  1. I hate Walmart, more for the long lines and demoralized staff than anything. Of course, i haven’t shopped at a Walmart since the Southwest Archaeological Association considered boycotting it in college for wanting to put a parking lot over an important set of pueblos when I was in college. I’m a little persnickety about Antiquities Laws…

  2. There is not enough blogspace for me to spew about my hate for WallyWorld…And that AP DMCA thing? Holy crap – I had no idea. I just want to quote and post things to spite them now.

  5. I’m so mad I missed round 5 – I know I would’ve won. The first Halloween I was old enough to pick out my own costume…I chose to be a Sleestack.
