I dunno, do you need to be robbed and beaten in your sleep?

Do you need to open a portal to the infernal realms in your garden?

Do you need to mocked constantly?

If you answered yes to any of those questions then you need a travelocity gnome.

Hrm, I just got a ship notification for the Scott Harvey Reserve Barbera.

Since I made it clear I wanted the 2009 (which SH to this day is still selling), not sure what got sent.

You could have just said "No, you don't need it"!

Fine! You can still be the only one with one.

School Permission Slip Warns Parents Their Kids Might Actually See Nature (Gasp!)

I loved the quotes ...


"I had a parent complain about their 3 year old's shirt and pants being dirty. When I told the parent it was from the child eating lunch she started yelling at me. At home they spoon feed her, which explained why their child sucked at feeding herself..."



Even better ...


"Guys. My sister is a sailing coach. She once had parents complain to her that her children were getting wet. At sailing class."



Too funny!


Edit: Read the comments too! More hilarity!

I've been trying to find the document that RPM sent to tourists last year about "how to taste wine." Does any one remember if that was emailed to us, in a google doc, or somewhere on a thread? I just can't find it...

Perhaps if you'd bookmarked the One-Stop RPM Magical History Tours Compendium thread?

I think the link you are looking for is in the 2nd post there.

I always tell my kid's daycare that the day I pick him up and he isn't filthy and bruised is the day that I'll get mad at them because they obviously just locked him up. On his "about me" poster they filled in:

What I want to be when I grow up: Daredevil

The kid is nuts.

Technically, it's only 2.


Edit: Although, when bowtie created the AltPub a long time ago, someone may have posted in the old Pub and new Pub too.

Agreed. My Mom always said that kids should eat a peck of dirt by the time they get to kindergarten, and I took that attitude with my kids. Their Mom wasn't too happy when a construction project nearby had a 20-foot tall pile of dirt, and I drove the kids over there one Sunday and let them climb it all day. I brought a book, and it was a great day all around. Until we got home.

my kids played in the barn and made sand pies...(we have mostly sand, not dirt here). I would have to hose them off before they came in....

It's a Woot-Off, and I just missed the gaming mouse (which I just found out on Saturday I needed a better one).

This two pub Hershey's Kiss is getting old.

Not everyone is my Facebook Friend and I need some feedback since I've never hired anyone:

Am I Sugar Daddy if I instantly put a resume in the NO file if it contains bad grammar? It's not like I've never been guilty of using bad grammar, but I feel that if you're going to apply for a job where one of the advertised factors is "attention to detail" and you submit something with poor grammar, you're probably not the droid I'm looking for.
