After chastising Barbie for not cleaning up after herself and ever-so-righteously doing it for her, Barbie looks at me and says

"You would make a great Catholic. You love suffering. The more pain you feel, THE BETTER! You could crawl on your knees to Rome and feel very redeemed."

I was momentarily wounded, but I hadn't forgotten the conversation we had about her and her freakin' perfection.

"Well, you would be a great JEW. You would make a perfect PHARISEE. YOU COULD LOOK DOWN YOUR NOSE AT EVERYONE ELSE, WHICH IS WHAT YOUR GOOD AT!"

Um. Yeah. So we don't stereotype or anything.


This is not meant to offend. I have friends of both religions who would find this conversation quite funny.

    Hey now! Watch the Catholic comments! We were brought up to feel guilt not pain...

This odd narrative is my life. I ended up in Pittsburgh, of all places--from the beach. I have no hobbies, other than cooking excessively and eating microwave popcorn. I enjoy shopping, the Food network, hiding the remote so the Food network cannot be turned off, find ethnic food stores and restaurants and reading voraciously. My life is decidedly pedestrian.


I worked in the car business where I was required to be ruthless and soul-less wench, which is when I started this project. Since then, I've kept it up because secretly, I've always wanted to join the military. Every male in my mother's family has joined and I quietly entertain thoughts of joining. I haven't yet and don't know if I ever will, but sending the troops cookies keeps me sane. it makes me think I still have a shred of human kindness left in my withering soul. it's a small way for me to salute the men and women who are brave enough to fight for freedom. And makes me feel like I'm contributing toward troop morale--even if I'm not. So if you want to help, send me addresses of troops you know stationed overseas. you may also contribute toward the cost of chocolate chips, but don't feel obligated, that link is here only by request.
