And another one
My darling son has been telling me about his school bus driver, who forces the boys to be chivalrous and give up their seats for girls. I just can't believe in this day and age that this still happens. It really bothers me - what is the message here? That girls are more feeble and need a seat more, or that chivalry is only practised by men towards women, or that manners need to be imposed upon the unwilling? Never mind the fact that there aren't enough seats for everyone.
I was buying The Information from Overstock.com (coz I want the stickers and the videos and the Scientology subliminal brain washing and all that other stuff) when I got an exceedingly annoying pop-up for a live assistant.
I detest obsequious service, and I thought online shopping was a haven from it. I hate when waiters ask you 50,000 times how everything is, usually when your mouth is full of something unflattering like spinach salad. I hate when shop assistants follow you around and ask if you can find everything ok or if they can help you with anything, usually when you're fingering the gusset of a gigantic pair of granny panties or musing on whether you need super plus or super plus plus tampons. I hate the feeling that Big Brother is hovering over your shoulder, ready to chip in with his opinion on your purchasing choices - "Honey - super plus plus. No question".
The ex-White House Chef has written a tell-all book. Apparently, the Bushes are rather boring about their food, surprise, surprise, and took advantage of state dinners to pay tribute to their big donors with disgusting recipes such as turkey stuffed with Dunkin' Donuts. I think they should hire this man as the White House chef.
I kind of want this CD, not least because of it's name. But also because I like what I've heard from it too.
