I have a mild obsession with food. Lately, it’s been manifesting itself in the form of watching food-related documentaries. It’s caused me to shy away from meat, and caused my BF to threaten to ban me from using Netflix. I recently watched Food, Inc. It’s pretty much the movie version of the book Fast Food Nation which I’ve read twice. It’s basically a bunch of awful news about America’s food supply. As I watched it, I thought, “This stupid film better end on a happy note. There’s no way you can just dump this shit on people and leave them without hope.”
And an idea was born!
I’m going to share a few snippets about chicks who aren’t stupid. Once in awhile I come across the occasional awesome chick who I wish lived in my state so we could be best friends. From time to time, I’ll write about them. We’ll call it a palate cleanser. (Tried to include the “chick sorbet” line from Wayne’s World but couldn’t make it work.)
Let’s start with the blogger responsible for www.stfuparentsblog.com.
This blogger-gal, who simply goes by “B”, has created a site that makes me laugh out loud with regularity. Anyone who has met me here in the real life knows I’m no fan of kids. However, it’s parents that really drive me to drink. But not just parents; parents on the Facebook. STFU, Parents is a compilation of the over-share, mama drama, and mommy-jacking (as B calls it!) that spinsters like me have a hard time understanding.
For the most part, people who read the site get the joke. However, the vocal minority does show up. (You know, these types) I’ve seen B referred to as a “barren whore” because of her site. I don’t know how or why posting annoying things that people say makes one barren or whorish, but it’s a horrible thing to say to someone who one day wants kids. Was this cranky bitch mad because she found STFU, Parents to be mean-spirited? Because I find calling someone “barren” mean-spirited. Unless that someone is me. If a doctor ever tells me I’m barren, it’s safe to say I’ll do a fist pump followed by the Napoleon Dynamite “Yessss!”
So to B of STFU, Parents: Since you live too far away from me to be best friends, perhaps we can be tumblr besties. I don’t really know what that entails, but let me know if your answer is yes before I go solicit kellyoxford.tumblr.com
I highly recommend www.stfuparentsblog.com when you need a good laugh. If you can’t take a joke, perhaps you shouldn’t click. But if you can’t take a joke, what are you doing here?
