Letters to Harry Potter and Friends

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011
By Glinda

Oh, these flew right under my radar when they first came out.

But, they were worth the wait…




I wonder if anyone puts themselves in Slytherin.

Oh, and color me bitter that Warner Bros. is pulling a Disney and pulling all Harry Potter movies off the shelf come Dec. 29.


My Parents Were Awesome

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011
By Glinda

Now, I know I told you I would have the downsides to homeschooling for you today, but then I realized it was Wednesday.

Nobody wants to hear complaints on a Wednesday.

So, I bring to you the tumblr My Parents Were Awesome, and some of the awesomeness contained therein.

“Realistic” Disney Princesses

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011
By Glinda

DeviantARTist Jace-Wallace created these realistic, digital Disney Princess paintings.  I think I like Ariel the best.   Although grain of salt with the descriptor, especially Ariel.

I must say that even though I really liked the movie Tangled (actually I thought it was one of Disney’s best princess movies ever) I was very distracted by the overlarge eyes of all the female characters.  Yes, I know it is a cartoon, but none of the men’s eyes looked so, um, cartoonish.

Tuesday Teeny Poll

44% of you consider the weather when deciding how long to leave leftovers out.  17% do a couple of hours no matter what, another 17% of you don’t even care, and another 17% of you REALLY don’t care.  Only 3% of you are as anal as I am, it seems.  Er, well, maybe that was just me.

On Friday I got my hair did, and as I was writing the check out to my stylist, I thought to myself that I couldn’t even remember the check I wrote before that.

Things I Love: Bubbly Bows

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011
By Glinda

My daughter is a bit young for these yet, as she will pull any barette out of her hair when given the opportunity.  But, I cannot wait until she is a little bit older so that I can put some of these in her hair.  They have so many different kinds of bows, and I adore almost all of them.   And I’m not really what I would call a person given to dress my child up as a “girly girl.”  I just think they are well done and so very creative.   There are a ton, including holiday themed ones, so check them all out!

They are a bit pricey though, so maybe Grandma can find it in her heart to get some for a future birthday.

Where is Jar-Jar?

I’m especially fond of young Jabba up there.

Songs as Understood by a Five Year Old

Thursday, April 28th, 2011
By Glinda

Cracked has some very awesome submissions that envision what popular songs sound like to five year olds.  I have to say, I was so there on that Stairway to Heaven picture when I was young.  There are 27 in all, here is a sampling:

Monday Teeny Poll

Good grief, what a weekend.  I, along with everyone else, sat and watched with horror the devastation in Japan.  The people in northern Japan, especially, just cannot seem to catch a freaking break.  My heart goes out to them and to all affected by the tragic events.

Last week I wished to find out how you got along with with your parents, and 43% said wonderfully with both.  Much higher than I expected, actually.  Not getting along with one parent in particular was split evenly with 17% each, and a small 5% answered not well with either parent.  I would say that I “get along” with both my parents, but my mother definitely knows how to annoy the crap out of me and does so often, but my father and I have a more even-keeled relationship. Actually, I can’t even remember the last time I fought with my dad.  My mom, well, that was unfortunately last weekend.

Today I’ve got a question about books.  People seem to fall into one of two categories when it comes to them.
