Monday Teeny Poll

So 43% of you are just fine with the Unbaby.me app that removes all bubbeh pics from your Facebook feed.  26% are like, whatever, 17% say if you dislike babies that much, just unfriend the person already, and 13% of you are not even on Facebook.

Today’s question is regarding the recent change in policy to male infant circumcision.  It seems that a peer-reviewed study has shown that the benefits of circumcision outweigh the risks, and the AAP is stopping just short of recommending routine infant circumcision.

Is it just me or did this weekend completely zip by? As my daughter is getting older and thus napping less, it seems my spare time has pretty much shrunk to nothing.

Last week I wanted to know how you shop, and 60% of you like to see the things you buy in person. I can totally relate to that, although I will admit that it seems stores are carrying less and less inventory and I am pretty much being forced to shop online for many things. Even though I would buy them in person if I could. Just the other day I was at Nordstrom’s, looking for Philosophy’s Save Me, and they didn’t have it. They had everything else but that. Of course, because that is what I wanted and that is the story of my life.

A couple of weeks ago I had a cupcake from this place, and I was completely underwhelmed. Which got me to thinking…

45% of you are watching ProjRun, and my favorite, Tim Gunn. I want to be Tim’s best friend. 27% of you refuse to watch the show, and 20% have no clue what I’m even talking about. You guys, get with the program! Pop culture knowledge isn’t evil, it’s fun!

As for today, I know a bunch of people who have seen Inception, and it seems they fall into two camps. Either they thought it was fantastic, or as one friend put it, “I would have rather watched Ernest Goes to Camp.” Ouch!

According to the results of last week’s poll, a full forty-six percent of you were never asked by your parents to go back to your room and change that outfit, missy.   I applaud you on your tasteful clothing choices throughout your youth. A devious thirty-three percent, though, were ordered to change, did so, and then snuck the clothes in your bag and managed to change back into them at a friend’s house or a bathroom somewhere.  I applaud you for your, er, ingenuity.  Seventeen percent were ordered to change and did so, I applaud you on your obedience, no matter how many things you uttered under your breath.  Only two percent had the cojones to ignore your parents’ directive, and I applaud you for somehow not getting grounded for life.

Today’s poll is about a man who, last week, placed an ad on craigslist to “sell” his two sons, claiming they could be used as “child slaves or footstools.”  He says it was all a big joke, and included that fact at the bottom of the ad. He was arrested for filing a false report, which seems to me the police didn’t have a whole lot to go on and were annoyed at him and wanted to arrest him for something.

Two very different red carpet looks for some young actresses:

Meredith Droeger

How much do I love this ombre dress? I think I want one for myself.  Meredith Droeger aquits herself beautifully on the red carpet for the premieire of “Extraordinary Measures.”

Bella Thorne

Thirteen year old Bella Thorne from “Big Love” tries to mix it up with a bit of red. But I’m not sure I love the look as much as Meredith’s.  I am digging her shoes, though.

Keanu Reeves, boy reporter

Let’s get in the Tardis, or the souped-up DeLorean, or the Austin Powers Love Bug (your choice) and travel back in time to 1984, a simpler time. A time when future hunks roamed the earth in embroyonic, geeky form, interviewing 13-year-old teddy bear collectors at International Teddy Bear Conventions.

Ladies and/or gentlemen, I give you: Keanu Reeves, Boy Reporter.

Quiz o’ the Day: Baby Toy or Sex Toy?

Sex Toy or Baby Toy Green WormSex Toy or Baby Toy? Green Jelly version

Oh, my. Mymymymymy. I’m not sure if I should be proud or ashamed that I got 10/15 on this quiz; the mind, it boggleth. It boggleth like nevair before. And I’m not even going to mention the parent/child issues in Dan Savage’s column lately.

Nope, you stay classy, raincoaster.

If you think you can do better (or worse) than me at this picture-based (and SFW right up until the Answers page, but WHOA, not then) quiz, click here to take it at the Home Made Sex Toy site, a most fascinating place. I am particularly delighted by the revolving spice rack stuffed with dildos (hey, how would YOU organize that many?) and the tips for converting worn-out toys to useful household articles. Although the butt plug/wine cork conversion is not something I’ll be trying at home.
