I'll buck the trend, I don't think her kids are all that in the cute department. not all kids are cute. they have other attributes that make up for that, but look at tweedle's aiden, that is a cute kid. and your kids mel, those are adorable kids. Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

So some blogger wrote a post about how the Starbucks lady said she had a golden life because she was headed off to vacation to Italy with her husband. Then said blogger held onto that poignant moment for 6 years before blogging about it. Turns out that yes, blogger has a fancy pants job at a super awesome gallery and she does dress nicely and is an incredible artist BUT she has self esteem issues, carries peanut butter with her because of food aversions and was going to Italy because she had just experienced a miscarriage. And really you never know what kind of struggle the person you assume has a "golden life" is dealing with.

Tweedle took offense to the post and called her on it. Blogger blocked tweedle.

I think 6 years is a long time to hold on to a off handed remark. I also think that people who have the means forget that there are plenty of women who are going through the same things you are and don't have the luxury of heading off to the spa or Italy to heal their soul.
I think this woman was legitimately grieving her miscarriage. I also think she needs some perspective and a better process of writing a blog that says "everyone is fighting their own battles - don't assume you know what they are". She came off as navel gazing about a painful time in her life and it didn't translate well.

This sounds like something that Elwood guy would say in the old Doonsbury.

There are two Americas - separate, unequal, and no longer even acknowledging each other except on the barest cultural terms. In the one nation, new millionaires are minted every day. In the other, human beings no longer necessary to our economy, to our society, are being devalued and destroyed. -- David Simon

I'm magically delicious!

I dated a Nestene duplicate once. Swappable head. Did keep things fresh. Right then! I have questions. But number one is this: What in the name of sanity have you got on your head?

So, what did Tweedle say? Because I am picturing some sort of entitlement fight but maybe not.

Lime time.
