Another Epilogue: More Popular Than A Tomahawk Missile In Libya

I’ve been thinking a lot about the UN mission in Libya and our involvement.  I think that I would feel different if we weren’t already in two wars.  But, of course, Jon Stewart says it best:

(If you can’t see the video, click here. There are a few curse words. You’ll be okay. Probably. Also, he doesn’t get to Libya at 1:20 or so, but it’s worth the wait.)

And of course, I’ve been doing some humanitarian efforts of my own:

Daylight Savings Time Proves The World Hates Parents: Daylight Savings Time ruins my life not for a week or a month but for multiple seasons of misery. Maybe the government could declare war on DST. Go read it on

I Cannot Believe I Spent $80 On This Crappy Toy: I lamented this stupid water toy that I purchased for E. Read it and SAVE YOURSELF.

The 5th Quarter Movie Made Me Cry: I got to watch a movie BEFORE it premiered on Friday. It was like a dream come true for a movie freak like me. The 5th Quarter is about Luke Abbate and his big brother, Jon Abbate, a football star at Wake Forrest. The movie also mentions Hakeem Nicks who ended up a New York Giant. He has absolutely nothing to do with the story, but I swooned.

The Magic of Topsail Island Book Review & Giveaway: And finally, This Blogger Makes Fun of Stuff is giving away the children’s book, The Magic of Topsail Island, by my friend, Lindsay Zarse. (VICARIOUSLY FAMOUS ALERT) My son asked me to read it twice. In a row. And I didn’t groan. If you have a kid 4-10 years old, go check out Mandyland’s review and win a book!

I hope these links make you feel better about the world. Or at least give you solace that you aren’t ME living in the world.

PS. I have a weird feeling that I’m forgetting something here. If it’s you, let me know.

She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. hey alex as far as the water/sand table thing I found a couple for you since I don’t know what your exact specifications are. FWIW my mom just bought two long thin plastic bins on wheels and that was my sand and water table. She’d then buy plenty of water and sand toys for it. Since we lived in centipede, rattle snake and child of the earth country we couldn’t have an outdoor sandbox like normal children. Anyway though here are the links

  2. Three Points:
    1. You know that Daily Show is a comedy show, right?
    2. Odyssey Dawn is a cool name for a midget stripper.
    3. Wouldn’t be ironic if Obama ordered the U.S.S. Bush to go to war?
