Nothing But Tears

Still stealing from other more humorous venues than I; namely, The Onion. I found the following very à propos my recent broken-record musings on wimpy parents:

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—After decades of coddling young children, Johnson & Johnson unveiled its new "Nothing But Tears" shampoo this week, an aggressive bath-time product the company says will help to prepare meek and fragile newborns for the real world...
Go here for the rest. Thanks, Jege, for the link.

At the Crabmommy bloglet: placenta prints—the must-have original artwork for your newborn's nursery! Très soignée! (Why am I using so many French expressions today? Could it be that I am bitter about all those wasted years learning French only to marry an American and live among the cowboys and recycled hippies [I will write more on this] of my past and present homes, respectively?)

I leave you with—for no good reason—an image of David Lee Roth:And here's another! Why not?Davy, it's been a while since you were this hot:YEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! PANAMA-HA!

Next in show: Rod Stewart, then and now, each era perhaps as scary as the other...

Hilarious! Love the onion - David Lee Roth, well, ew, but still funny!

The David Lee Roth photos are nice. But what this blog really needs is more talk of the enchanting constant joy and transformative wonderment of motherhood.

Greetings from the Kruger National Park. A little slice of paradise.

Met some lovely people from Natal last night who invited us to share their braai.

The only problem was they were all wearing headlights (and one had crocs). They kept trying to persuade Mrs Blog and I to buy cyclops lamps...

I was more than happy to keep cooking with my cheap flashlight in my mouth, tongs in one hand and beer in the other.

Headlights are the new Amway.

Resist!

It's a good thing I read this before breakfast. If the placenta thing wasn't bad enough, the DLR shots would have emptied my gut
