Guilt About Other People’s Moms

Backstory: Occasionally, I get emails from this random woman who has my e-mail address mixed up with her daughter’s. I haven’t had one in about a year, because I keep responding and saying that I’m not her daughter, because I know how mad my mom would be if she thought I was blowing her off.

Two Black Kittens Need a (Better) Home

Backstory: My mom sent this mass-email to everyone she knows (including my sister, M!)

Anyone know of a home for 2 black fixed kittens ? (under 6 mos)

M convinced her boyfriend (against my advice!) to get these 2 kittens from the shelter. He works too much (I KNEW it) and can’t take care of them. (I told you so!). So he would like to find a home for them.

I’m trying very hard NOT to say anything. That won’t last long. hmmphh

Facebook As New Fangled Guilt Conveyor

Consume, Digest, Then Poo

Offspring – I am cancelling the reservation to Arun’s restaurant.  People are losing everything to the flooding in Iowa; people are losing their homes from bank foresclosures (USA Today highlighted a family who took out a home equity loan for $100,000 – their house is now worth $60,000); the price of oil is making travel via car or air prohibitive yada yada yada and I am going to have my hard working princess daughters spend $100 each for a fancy dinner – food we consume, digest then poo? I would rather spend money supporting the local restaurants. Mama

Love, Mom
