Don’t be a schlub

You callin' me a schlub?

You callin’ me a schlub?

Confession time.  I’m a schlub.  The definition?  I’ll look it up, just so we are accurate.  Hold, please….. WHOA!  What the hell?! I just looked up the definition, it’s “a person regarded as clumsy, stupid, or unattractive.”  Unbelievable! I am NOT a schlub!  I thought it meant someone who doesn’t keep a clean face, maybe lets their nose and ear hairs grow too long, trips over things, wears the same clothes from 10 years ago, and maybe forgets things easily. I was trying to say that I do not have a super stylish wardrobe, and I shower only when I remember, which can sometimes be every day, and sometimes it means every couple of days.   I’m saying that clearly I’m not a metrosexual.  Not that there’s anything wrong with being a metrosexual.  Many of my friends are metrosexual.  I’m just saying that I’m a messy individual.  And I get my clothes from Old Navy…..not that a metrosexual can’t own clothes from Old Navy, that’s not what I’m saying.  Quit backing me into a corner here!   Fine!  Alright!  I’m a schlub!  You happy?!

Dealing With The Inner Monster: A Book Review

It’s nice when I get contacted and asked if I could review a book.  I like free books.  I do make sure to let them know that if I think it’s garbage, then I won’t write a review about it and will happily mail it back to them so they can ship it off to somebody else.  But not this time.  This time I’m keeping the book!  No, it’s not just because the Dalai Llama likes it, because he does. He endorsed it, and he’s no dummy.  No, it’s because I actually enjoyed it!

But it’s not about me, is it.  It’s a children’s book, so I need to test it out on a child to get an honest review.  The book is from the  “Now I Know…” series written by Sally Devorsine.  The book I was given is called “Now I know..That’s It’s Better To Face My Monsters!!” It’s available at Chocolate Sauce Books.

The Perfect Christmas Gift For Dad

Manhood = Baa Bye

So there you are, wishing your husband would be more involved, maybe take the kids to the park or to the mall, or a hike, or “just wherever, just go!” But there’s something standing in the way:  his masculinity.  It’s next to impossible to exude that alpha dog manliness out in public when he’s carrying your teal diaper bag.  It looks like a damn purse!
