Celebrity Dad Faceoff 2.0

Paul Rudd seems to hold many of you in thrall, as he garnered 90% of the vote.  Hank Baskett, you may return to playing football and whatever else it is that you do.  But you do it so cutely, Hank.

Today’s new infusion of handsome has had a successful career in Hollywood for quite a while, and is currently starring with Hugh Laurie in a show called House.


Monday/Tuesday Teeny Poll

A surprising 47% of you think that in some cases, it might be best to stay married “for the kids.” I can totally see where you are coming from. 40% of you believe that in most cases, the answer is no.  Only 11% are in the camp of it is never a good idea to stay married for the sake of someone else, even if it is the children.  You know, I can sort of see all sides of this.  It’s a toughie.

Today’s question is a bit more, erm, fluffy.

Don’t say I never did anything for you.

In one of the lowest vote totals evah, Hank Baskett squeaked by Keith Urban by a mere one percent.  That’s gotta hurt.  I’m sure Keith Urban, as a country singer, has at some point sung a lyric about hard luck or what have you that I could quote, but I do not listen to country music.  So, sorry about that.

Today I again feature an actor that surprised me for not already being featured on CDF.  And let me tell you, the man is a chameleon.  Almost every picture of him looked different.  But I picked the one I liked best.  Oh yeah, he’s been in some pretty good movies, and I find that for many, you either love him or hate him.


Oh What the Hell August

August is a hell of a month, ain’t it?

And because it is hot/strangely busy yet somewhat boring, I’m going to be doing a bit of lighter-than normal posting.  Also, my boss said I could.


I’m going to take a page from NtB (or as you now know, Christa Terry) and open up Teeny Manolo for some questions. 

Wanna ask me something?  Surely you need some parenting advice.  Or perhaps you have always pined to know what my favorite food is.

Well, it’s your lucky month.

And, besides answering all the bound-to-be-interesting questions, I’m going for a much looser feel on the blog this month. Maybe more personal, maybe more off the wall, and maybe not always related to kids.  It remains to be seen exactly what, but it should be fun.

Go on, take your best shot.

I Thought Everyone Knew This Already…

Roseart doesn’t even have the decency to melt correctly!

Once, long ago, as a newbie mom, I bought some Roseart crayons for the Munchkin. I mean, the price was so cheap! How could I not buy them? Then I figured out that Roseart crayons are the equivalent to the free crayons you get with the kids’ menus at restaurants. Which suck. So, never again did Roseart darken my shopping cart.

Monday Teeny Poll

Monday, August 1st, 2011
By Glinda

83% of you joined me in failing to see what the big deal was about that Chuck E. Cheese picture.  Dude has like, three “fingers” on that costume.  It’s pretty much a guarantee that one of them is going to look like a pointed index.  Get over it.  16% of you had some outrage in the “meh” range, and nobody had anything nearing an attitude that cared.

Today’s poll topic is divorce.
