My Sunday Routine

The TV Guide

Another Sunday, another trip down to Anaheim, CA to hang out with my peoples at Disneyland. Now that the temps have fallen from the 100s down into the 80s, it was practically WINTER here in SoCal yesterday. Altho it was still hot, it was much less hot than it’s been for the past few weeks so it did feel like a relief. The day was fun and fairly standard. Fun Fun Fun, you know, the usual. I did get to meet a PITNB reader in the parks last night so that was really a great highlight of my day. All in all, I enjoyed another great Sunday Funday at Disney! More »

What’s Your Most Memorable Concert Experience?

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

I recently announced on Instagram that I’m trying a new thing called “going out,” (which means, specifically, leaving my house for non-work-related social events) and it’s been going really well. My favorite part of going out, so far, has probably been the return of alcohol in my life. Now that tyrant King Josev (who has OMG been making me crazy with all his new advancements in getting around/knocking over/spilling/destroying everything in sight) is no longer nursing at night, I get to get my drink and my two-step on, and it’s been glorious. Last night, I drank. Sort of a lot. So much so that this post is going up about 3 hours later than I planned. But more important than the drinks was the Source 360 Wu-Tang Reunion Concert I went to. My partna-in-babymaking showed me the lineup earlier in the week, and we realized it was basically the concert we would design. Three of his faves (Curren$y, Dom Kennedy, and Dipsetwho we saw last year), plus two of my faves (Lil’ Kim and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony), plus the guys who invented C.R.E.A.M.? It was honestly one of the best nights ever. And, once again, I was reminded that concerts are awesome, and I need to go to all of them. I’m going to start today by living vicariously through all of your concert experiences, so click inside for more!

‘Nothing but endless Taylor Swift and Anaconda replays…’

PITNBr DJ FTW! And Other Awesomeness In Comments This Week!

It’s Sunday night and I may be losing my mind a bit. Somewhere between the start of First grade for one son, the start of Pre-K for another, and a third getting way more teeth than necessary, I think I’ve officially become one of those crazy mothers whoo just wants to put the kids to bed so she can catch up on The Strain, and make 10 sandwiches for the week. All of that to say, THANK YOU PITNBrs for another week of hilarious, awesome commentary to take my mind off the fact that I am probably losing my mind. Click inside for moooore!

When Is Time To Stop Supporting An Organization?

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

Earlier this week I saw women on ESPN who were proudly wearing their Ray Rice jerseys, and defending the NFL player after video footage of him knocking out his now-wife Janay Rice went viral. Of course, my initial reaction was of disgust. But then I thought about it and I realized that one thing I don’t have in common with these women is that I’m not a football fan. The NFL isn’t an organization I give any effs about, and I wondered if that had an effect on my reaction, and theirs. Every time something big happens, there are often groups and corporations held responsible, and people start calling for a boycott of those organizations. But—let’s face it—many, many organizations (especially those that are for profit) are likely tied to some shady stuff. So, when is enough, enough?

Should This Celebrity Nude Photo Leak Be Compared To Rape?

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

At the risk of sounding like a 72 year-old, I have to confess that I don’t really get the nude photo movement. Now, that doesn’t mean I haven’t ever um participated in said movement, but I’m not really an active participant and I never quite got all of the excitement behind it. This recent celebrity nude photo scandal has got me thinking some thoughts about nude photos, and since we recently learned that that photos will be in an art exhibit, I thought it’d make for a good YATNB discussion.

‘Fess Up: Which Celebrity Sex Tape Would You Totally, Unashamedly Watch?

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

Don’t judge me. But I’ve had celebrity sex tapes on the brain (clearly). Maybe it’s all the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta that I’ve been watching, maybe it’s that Amber Rose twerk video, which kind of felt like a sex tape… LOL. But I recently had this troubling flashback to that Hulk Hogan sex tape that the world was forced to endure back in 2012. OMG. That was an… experience. But not all sex tapes are Hulk Hogan‘s sex tapes, so we’re going to talk about celebrity sex tapes we’d kinda, sorta, totally watch for this week’s You Are The New Blog discussion.

‘Stood up for feminism. Check. Worked the wind machines like nobody’s business. Check.’

PITNBr janalynn22 FTW! And Other Awesomeness in PITNBr Comments

Every once in a while, I have a week where I just have to allow myself to love Beyoncé. I step away from the hateration, and I just let myself love her. After the MTV VMAs, that’s what I had to do. I retweeted lit’rally every Blue Ivy meme available to me, and I just accepted the Carters for the friggen awesome, adorable family that they were on stage that night. For the first time ever, I actually, legit identified with Beyoncé. Like, OMG. In a real way. Watching her cry because her daughter is just so the truth, made her look more human to me than she ever has before. So yeah, she wins this week. And so do you PITNBrs!

‘Her Ass Looks Good In That Song’

Matthew FTW! And Other Awesomeness in PITNBr Comments

The MTV VMAs are about an hour away, and I’m more excited than even I can understand. Maybe it was that video of Iggy Azalea falling, or that snake that bit Nicki Minaj‘s backup dancer… LMAO… oh no, that’s so not funny. But for some reason, I think tonight’s going to be fun. This could also be the large bottle of pink moscato talking… because it’s been that kind of a week. Anyway, in spite of the madness that has been trying to get actual work done in a house with 3 little boys, it’s been fun and you guys have kept me laughing every step of the way.

Should Celebrity Moms Talk About Their Nannies More Often?

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum

Listen folks, I’m going to keep it almost all of the way real right now. Today’s YATNB discussion is all about ME, ME, ME and some stuff that I am going through, lol! I just read an article that is basically all about my life, titled Yes, men are better writers. I am going to tattoo the author’s name on my body because OMFG, she nailed it in so many uncomfortable ways. Her bottom line being, simply, that men have/give themselves more time to be creative—even when they have families—and women do not, so there it is. To be a good writer, you need time to write (and sleep, and eat, and think) and as a mother of three I officially am tapped out of all that ish (actually, I’m eating fine… whatever). And I’m just now (sort of) coming to terms with the fact that I simply cannot do all of these things I thought I could a year ago, and it’s time to adjust accordingly. One thing the author Helen Addison-Smith makes clear is that, technically, all these issues are resolved with a nanny. If you have enough money to pay someone to take good care of your child, you’re kind of all set (trouble is, writing rarely = enough money to pay someone to take good care of your child/ren, LOL). It got me thinking about celebrity moms like Megan Fox, Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani, Gwyneth Paltrow, and how much I’m pissed at all of them right now… kidding! Sort of! So click inside for more!

Nine Inch Nails Rocks Irvine, CA

The TV Guide

My Friday in the new homestead was a pretty good one. Altho I’m still chin deep in boxes left to unpack, I managed to get a few more of the boxes unpacked, got my Direct TV installed and managed to situate (more or less) my living room area. I woke up late yesterday morning because I turned off my alarm so I did my best to make it up by working late. I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to drive down to Irvine, CA to see Nine Inch Nails in concert but I managed to rally and make the trek. I’m so glad that I did. Even tho the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater is a massive venue, I was able to walk right in and randomly stumble upon my group of friends. The show was amazing, just what I needed last night. More »
