The Soccer Mom Vlog

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008
By raincoaster

Talk about living the American Dream: soccer mom Jeannie Tate has her own talk show, hosted from within her minivan. Finally, a justification for the ubiquitous gas-guzzler of the American Suburbs. Got to make space for the video crew!

(OT: is anyone else as tired as me of seeing minivans with one lone occupant? is it just my past as a Greenpeace campaigner? Am I the only person on Earth who’d win the lottery and buy… a smartcar? Okay, I’d buy a Countach too, but still.)

In the age of YouTube, when anyone could have a vlog, it takes a certain something to break out and make a name for one’s self. Whatever that thing might be, it’s a thing Jeannie Tate has in common with Tila Tequila and Brian Atene. The rest of us can only gaze in wonder (and add comment # 1580 on the YouTube thread)…

The Pros of Having an Only Child

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008
By Glinda


It seems that fate has decreed I only have one child. It wasn’t necessarily what I would have wanted, but my body has emphatically refused to produce another.

So, I’m trying to count my blessings for the one I do have, and I put together a list of the good things about that. This list is in no way intended to offend people with more than one child, because tomorrow, I am going to deal with the down side. And trust me, there’s a down side.

1. Having lots of time and energy to give to the one child versus splitting it up between siblings.
2. Not having to negotiate who can play with what toy.
3. Only one diaper and potty training phase.
4. Only one terrible two and three phase.
5. One college tuition bill! Wheee!
6. Less use of resources. Meaning three do not consume as much water, plastic, etc…
7. One social calendar to worry about.
8. Not ever having to screech “Stop hitting your brother/sister!”
9. One set of finicky dietary demands.
10. Not having to buy a minivan.

And tomorrow, the cons…
