Back by Popular Request: Elsewhere On the Internet…

I stopped doing weekly round-up posts a couple of months ago because I was sporadic at best, and honestly, I didn’t think the interest was there. But I’ve gotten tons of requests for them recently, so I decided to resurrect them. The majority of my weekly articles are usually published by Thursday, so I’m marking Thursday on my Google calendar as Elsewhere On the Internet Day.

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

This Week at The Stir:

I wrote about author Charles Murray and his ‘elitist bubble’ concept published in his new book, Coming Apart, The State of White America, 1960-2012. I scored a 37. I think that number, like my age and my weight, is just a number.

Apparently food stamps are going to fix the economy. They’re going to fix it so well that the government is giving out $75,000 grants to groups that devise ways to sign more people up for food stamps.

This one on Susan G. Komen defunding Planned Parenthood got such a hateful reaction that Mark Davis’s producer Susan contacted me to be on the show tomorrow morning to talk about it. Some people are just mean. If you’d like to listen in, I’ll be on at 7:04 Pacific, which means I’ll be locked in the garage or something while poor Leif wrangles the kids to get ready for school. I love you, Honey!

The Latest on Moms Matter:

This State of the Union Analysis is technically from last week, but seeing as CafeMom hasn’t posted this week’s article yet, I thought I’d include it anyway. Hey, it’s my site, I can post what I want to! :-)  (Even emoticons!)

What Happened on Glee:

Glee was new this week, which means I shut everyone out of my bedroom at 8pm on Tuesday to watch high school musical drama, write about it, and call it ‘work.’ My job kinda rocks. I ended up talking more about my marriage than the show though.

 

Happy reading!

Elsewhere on the Internet

Hey guys! What’s up? Has it been long enough since I’ve done a wrap-up post? Could it be any longer?

Sorry. I’ve been watching Friends on Nick-at-Nite recently, and Chandler Bing’s quirky personality seems to have rubbed off on me. And yes, I just said Friends is on Nick-at-Nite. Could I feel any older?

Dang. Did it again.

Anyway, I wrote some stuff for other sites recently, and you should read it. Or at least click on it, because honestly, the web traffic monitors won’t know if you don’t read it. But really, you should read. It’s good stuff! And then you should send links to your friends and family. Because the best advertising is word of mouth, and if all eight of my readers sent my links to two people each, and then those people sent them to two people each, and so on and so forth, I’d be crowned Queen of the Internet by 2013.

Nevermind. That sounds dirty. Moving on.

Stuff to click read:

PETA sued SeaWorld because they’re enslaving Shamu. Seriously. I can’t make this crap up.

Did Men’s Wearhouse support the Occupy kids, or was it just a ploy to avoid vandalism? Hmmm…

Should homosexual imagery be played during G-rated TV shows? By the way, my editors choose the pictures that go along with my articles – not me. Just wanted to make that clear.

Gloria Allred gives me a headache. Can Herman Cain recover from her venom?

Mississippi voted down the personhood amendment. Not like that matters; it wouldn’t have stopped abortion in the least.

And I have a few Glee updates on Big Hollywood:

‘Glee’ Recap 11/1/2011: Baby Mama Drama, Poking Fun at Bachmann’s Campaign Style

Last Night on Glee, 11/09/11: Gay Teen Sex — Let the Controversy Begin!

Last Night on ‘Glee’ 11/15/2011: ‘Angry White People’ Edition

Happy reading!

CafeMom

Hey everyone!

I started a weekly op-ed column over at CafeMom’s new site- The Stir.  Does this officially make me a mommy-blogger?  Do I have to attend BlogHer now? Hmm… things to ponder.  Actually, a couple of days in NYC this summer sounds great.  (My poor hubby is sitting at work on his lunch break reading that and getting worried.  Love you Honey! *mwah*)

While Leif tries to figure out if I’m seriously joking or jokingly serious about attending another conference, check out my first article.
