Welcome back to another week of lady reads! This week, we’ve got the best movie review ever written, a sick burn on Donald Trump, cool animals, and lots of other interesting posts.
We’ve got a few big stories to mention this week, plus an interesting interview with The Notorious RBG. Let’s get started:
The 2015 Girl Scout cookie season is underway across the country. Earlier today, my daughter and I tallied her sales and emailed them to our cookie manager. This year, my fourth grader approached many customers herself, went knocking on neighbors’ doors and called relatives. She wrote down the orders herself, gave totals, and is currently […]
Troop Beverly Hills in on Netflix Instant which means I can relive that Girl Scout trip where we watched it on repeat between Long Island and Washington, D.C.
If anything captivated ladyblogland this past week, it was Ferguson. Our PoC news captured a few articles yesterday. I’ve rounded up a few, plus some other articles of interest.
This week, let’s talk about why teen girls should think about getting IUDs, why some men are weirdly excited to be called “evil,” and why no app can stop sexual assault. Also, weddings and babies! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
My father loved to give advice in pithy brief sound-bites, like “Neither a borrower or a lender be,” “If you break your leg, don’t come running to me,” and “Moderation in all things, including moderation.” One of our favorites was when he helped us do story problems in math, and we could count on him […]
This weekend, my daughter and I will deliver nearly one hundred boxes of cookies to our friends and family. Her troop of fourteen third graders have sold 1356 boxes of cookies, and they are just getting started. We’ll be braving the elements and selling cookies at designated locations throughout February and most of March.
Happy birthday, Girl Scouts!!! This year marks the 100th anniversary of the foundation of Girl Scouts and today is the big day that Juliette Gordon Low first gathered 18 girls to form the first troop. This, of course, means celebration via Girl Scout cookie eating and a stroll through the history of Girl Scouts. Grab […]
Hello, kittens, and welcome back! Here we are at another round of news recap, where I, your dark current events overlord, Kitten McTavish, will be highlighting this week’s highs, lows, and all that fluffy stuff in between. Where will we go from here? Is this where we want to be? Doesn’t matter because the world […]
It’s Monday, one of the best days of the week! Easily in the top 10. Well, maybe not “easily.” But probably. Lots of crap going on in the world today, and some not-crap. Let’s take a look.
Last year, I was invited to the Statehouse to speak with the Lieutenant Governor during a very quiet legislative session. This year, it appears that the Statehouse has taken a note from the Superbowl planning committee and has done everything but install a zipline to provide entertainment for Indiana citizens, as well as national audiences.
This week’s crapdate comes courtesy of HonestGirlScouts.com, a website that shot up in popularity after a video posted by a 14-year-old Girl Scout went viral. In the video, the girl calls for a boycott of Girl Scout Cookies because of the Girl Scouts’ acceptance and support of transgendered girls. Here it is, in all its glory:
One of the best things about being a mom is being able to watch my daughter enjoy things that I did as a child. Watching her learn to swim, enjoy movies like Cinderella and get excited about playing in the snow are small pleasures I wasn’t expecting. When she was eager to don the Care […]
