Snuggie Sensation

It has come to my attention that no matter how badly the American people may want it, this madness will never end. Having that said, I promise that this is the last post I will devote to the snuggie. It has wasted too much of my time...and yours. However, this story is too good not to tell.

Need I say more? Now, your dog can change the channel without his (or her) arms getting cold! In a way, this is briliant. My two yorkies don't like to watch their favorite Animal Planet shows in the basement because it gets so cold. Also, I know if I had a snuggie my dogs would get jealous. I have to admit, my dogs do have outfits. Sweaters, dresses and tee-shirts. But even I think this takes things a bit too far.

The Saga Continues

Whilst thumbing through the Sunday Ads this week, I saw something at Shopko that left me speechless and breathless. Introducing...(drumroll, please)... THE COLLEGIATE SNUGGIE!

Allegedly, there's even a BYU pattern for all my friends going to the Y. However, sadly, no Harvard or BYU-I prints...YET! So don't be surprised this Christmas if you all open your gifts from me and discover a sleeved blanket adorned with school spirit!

Jon & Kate + 8 - Jon = Too Much Psycological Math

"Jon and Kate Plus 8" started out as a show about a family with eight kids and increasingly became a show about a man with no reason to live. Eventually, however, it turned in to a show depicting a broken home and the most hated man in America.

I have to admit, I didn't latch on instantly to the Gosselin's like the rest of America. When I first started watching, I felt sorry for Jon. I viewed Kate's actions toward him as being degrading and demeaning. However, in the light of day, I have been able to see how hard Kate had to work to keep Jon from acting like a ninth child. Now, I see a glimpse of how hard it really is to raise 8 children, wrangle in a worthless husband, and maintain a 1980's punk-rock hairstyle with ease and grace.

Her Morning Elegance

This is so cool. I found it on a friend's blog and was afraid to blink. It's a little long but once you start watching, you can't take your eyes off of it.

Free the Leash Kids!

I've observed a growing epidemic in our society today. Parents too chicken to discipline their children, too nervous to leave them at home, and too lacking in pride to care whether or not they come off as insane to others. Enter the Leash Kid.
The leash kid is most frequently a boy between the ages of 2 and 5 tethered to his mother by a leash disguised as a monkey backpack with an extra long tail for holding. Ironically, being tethered to one's mother seems only to make these kids want to run more than if they were free to come and go as they pleased. This results in kids wrapping their whole bodies extremely tightly around fire extinguishers and throwing themselves on the ground and roll around as if they were trying to extinguish fire from their clothes.

While at the mall the other day, I saw a kid pulling on his leash so hard, he was nearly dragging his mom through the center court. Something must be done about this. No longer can we sit back and laugh at the kids stripped of their basic freedoms. Now is the time to act. It's time to cut the leashes and allow the children of America to rejoin their rightful place in society and run free from their nagging mothers.

The "Snuggie" Dilema

It's been nearly 5 monthes since I last updated and am nearly ashamed to be doing it again after this long without it. Part of me almost forgot the blog altogether and was ready to delete it. But I'm going to college in the fall and I don't know if that means I'll blog more because I have more things to talk about or if it means I'll never blog because I'm so engrossed in my school work. However, I had to share this ironic story with the world.

Yesterday, I was watching TV in my basement Family Room when a commercial came on for the "Snuggie". I hate these things. I think they are one of the dumbest inventions ever and can't believe they made it on TV much less that people would actually buy them. As I watched, half disgusted, half enchanted, I summoned the will-power to change the channel. Then I realized that I was wrapped up in a warm blanket and didn't want my arms to get cold. If only I had a blanket with sleeves....

....GENIOUS! So, i am now offically a fan of the "Snuggie". I can read with it...

...I can play my GameBoy with it...

...I can even blog with it like I'm doing right now!
