Someone on twitter asked, "When does the pile up end?" I responded: "You earn a pile-up when you conduct business badly."

I think Jenny should change her twitter bio to that.

I couldn't agree more. As a PR professional, I saw A LOT of things wrong with the BrandLink strategy - far beyond a mistaken reply-all. In my professional opinion, here was the real #PRFail:

Wow. I've heard people talking about these bags and now I see why! I really, really want that Paris bag. I'm going to be traveling to Toronto for my birthday and it would look so great on that trip!

Wow. look at my old hair in that profile picture...
There was an ad for this on tv last night & Chip mentioned to me that he thought it looked like a good movie. I just need to know if we really do get to see Ryan Gosling's abs in it.
I find my migraines to be protein-related sometimes too. Are you not taking anything for prevention? As often as you get them, I'd think they'd have you on something for prevention & not just treatment.

There's a lot of old hair band songs that would qualify for me I think. It makes me roll my eyes and go "ugh" when it comes on the radio. Also that ghetto trash Ke$ha. So not cute.

WHODAT? WHODAT? WHODAT? WHODAT? WHODAT SAY DEY GON BEAT DEM SAINTS? Here wait...allow me to show you my fleur de lis tattoo. (I botched your poll though. I tried to vote "YAY FOOTBALL!" but it told me I couldn't vote twice. Which leads me to believe I accidentally "boo football sux." Which shouldn't surprise you. Us Saints fans are all ass-backwards that way.
When I get overwhelmed like that, I often have the fantasy that my brakes give out or my steering column fails or something and my car smashes into a tree and I end up in the hospital for weeks at least, maybe months, on all kinds of great painkillers, where everybody has to take care of ME. My AA sponsor tells me that's not normal.

Okay, but you really should read To Kill a Mockingbird. It is really, really good writing and I re-read it every year.

True dat. We spent the week of the Fourth at a beach house in Destin. I've been vacationing in Destin for 20 years & I've never seen it so empty. Great for us (we also negotiated a great deal on the house), but sad for the area's economy.

Four days ago, my 89-year-old FIL fell out of bed and hurt his neck and back. Today, my MIL asked me to help take him to the doctor. I couldn't imagine a worse way to spend a day, but naturally... Continue reading

My son and I got into a text-argument last night. It started because I happened to see that one of his friends posted a photo of her new hookah on facebook with the status "Come smoke with me!" Later, I... Continue reading

Interesting. I would have voted that her act did indeed cause the death. Like you said - it's about the age. The driver was a minor, which means he wasn't mature enough to make the decision whether or not to drive in his state, WHICH IS WHY WE DON'T GIVE ALCOHOL TO MINORS.

There are a ton of issues parents have to worry about surrounding teens on Facebook — privacy issues, cyberbullying, drunken photos that mean he can kiss that senate career goodbye. Do you friend or don't you friend? If you friend... Continue reading

Excellent post. I grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast about 45 minutes from NOLA. Back then, the drinking age in Miss. was 18 for beer & wine, 21 for liquor. But in Louisiana it was 18 for everything. Needless to say, we drove across state lines to drink on the weekends; we were lucky none of us were killed. So I can see the reasoning for having all states be the same age. Louisiana was the last state to raise to 21 (for obvious reasons) and Rose is exactly right - the Federal govt withheld highway funds from states that didn't go all 21. I think it's ridiculous, for all the reasons you stated in your post. I'm totally twittering this post. ~k

Thanks, W. I can't take any credit for his love of science, but I'm certainly grateful for it.

Don't be too hard on yourself. I imagine the frustration and powerlessness you feel from your husband's illness needs an outlet. I suspect it's not so much that you're personally angry about your brother's news, so much as it's an opportunity for a lot of previously "stuffed" emotions to come bubbling to the surface. Emotions are God-given. Give yourself permission to FEEL them — whatever they are — and then give yourself permission to move on. You're going to be okay. X
"...Right in the middle of her for'ed. And when she was good, she was very, very good, And when she was bad she was horrid." I haven't heard that poem in years.

I have long said that the hardest part of parenting is the letting go. Sounds like you've gotten pretty good at it. X
