Don’t Mind Me, Just Coasting Through…

If you’ve cared enough to notice, there has been a distinct lack of original thought here on good old Teeny Manolo.  Go figure that this is turning out to be a busy, weird, distracting summer. 

Hopefully, maybe it is for you too and you won’t have noticed at all.

Buzzfeed has a cute article addressing 25 things kids today won’t even know about.  Here are my favorites,  and no, I couldn’t get behind the 90’s Nickelodeon cartoons, which sucked.   The only 90’s cartoons I liked were The Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain. The rest, pfffft.

Why wasn’t a rotary phone on this list?


Cursive writing. Going the way of the dodo?


Memorizing a phone number, which is a good one. I still remember my parent’s first phone number.


God, how many hours of my pre-teen and teenaged life did I spend making mix tapes? Probably too many.


Ahhh, VHS tapes, how I hated thee. My son has no idea what I mean when I say, “Be kind, rewind.” That’s probably a good thing.


I thought I was so kickass with my Walkman in high school. I used it mostly when I waited to play volleyball games, whether a regualar season match or a weekend tournament. There was a lot of waiting around, what can I say?

Go read the whole list here.

Monday Teeny Poll

Last week I wanted to know if you read tabloid newspapers, and zero of you felt you were addicted.  However, not quite the same when applied to gossip news sites on the internets, where 40% of you often find yourself reading about the newest fight between Blake Lively and Leo DiCaprio.  23% of you only read the newspaper version at the checkout line, and 36% of you swear that you never do, even when the annoying lady in front of you is writing a check.

Today, I want your feedback on a post and picture that originally appeared on Consumerist.  It seems the father of the little boy posing with Chuck E. Cheese up there felt that Chuckie was giving his son the finger. He complained to the restaurant, where they insisted that wasn’t the case.  He then took it to Consumerist to ” …stir up some debate and maybe make some other parents more aware for when it comes time to take their kids’ photos with the big mouse.”

My Husband is Jealous of David Beckham

Not because Mr. Beckham is a talented soccer player/underwear model.

And also not because he is married to Posh Spice.

He is jealous of David Beckham because mere days after the birth of his daughter, he is surfing.

You see, my husband barely saw the light of day when I was recovering from both of my C-sections.  I think he went out of the house to possibly buy diapers and get me food.

Being rich does indeed have its privileges.

SO MUCH WRONG

I present to you the utterly terrifying Harry Potter characters as reborn dolls.

I think it’s a tie between Voldemort and Dobby as to who will be the star of my nightmares tonight.

Herminone Granger

Ron Weasley

Dobby

Harry Potter

Severus Snape

Voldemort

Monday Teeny Poll

69% of you disagree with LA Unified’s ban on chocolate milk at schools. Which in turn means 30% of you agree.   I’m going to have to say that I am not a fan of the ban. Yeah, it’s some extra sugar.  But if a child is very overweight, then I don’t think it is just the chocolate milk that is the issue.  If the child drinks regular milk at school, yet does not have access to fruits and veggies and lots of physical playtime, then it doesn’t really matter in the long run.  And what about those kids that aren’t overweight at all?  Why shouldn’t they get to choose?

Today I’m all about the British tabloid scandal.  Well, sort of.

Celebrity Dad Faceoff 2.0

Well, I think we all know that the very yummy picture of Jamie Bamber was pretty much one of the best ones I’ve ever featured on this contest.  And of course he is now in the CDF Hall of Fame.

Damn, I’m going to miss that picture.

So, I’ve got two new contestants.

And for some strange reason, I couldn’t find a decent “studio” picture of Kendra Wilkinson’s husband, so I’ve featured both men in a fairly unstaged state,  just to be fair.  You might know the second celebrity dad as either a country singer or Nicole Kidman’s husband.  I”m not really a country fan, so Nicole it is for me.

VERSUS

The Tooth Fairy Shouldn’t Mess With A Girl From Brooklyn

Real or fake, still entertaining.
