The basic story: A North Carolina man, David Green Jr., (who we have no background info on), was decapitated by his girlfriend and kids. His body was kept in …
Alright, folks. I’m sorry, but this isn’t going to be a typical 8BD post. I’ve got quite the axe to grind before I burrow it in the next restaurant manager’s chest who sends out a high chair with a broken or missing waist belt.
Let me start by filling you in. Last weekend, my family and I were visiting a place in town that we all really enjoy (it’s the only place in town that can really cook a burger charred rare). The hostess seated us and brought us a high chair with a busted clasp on the waist belt. I asked her to get a different one, but she came back telling me that the only other chair they had was also broken.
At this point I had a flashback to a few weekends ago when my family and I were out on the road. We stopped at a popular franchise steakhouse for supper. The waiter there also unwittingly brought me a busted chair. When I pointed it out to him, he was embarrassed and very apologetic. I reassured him, and told him it was a frequent problem. I asked him to check out the rest of his chairs while he was away getting us another one. I predicted that at least half of his chairs would have similar problems. He was shocked to find that I was right.
I wasn’t so shocked. In fact, I’ve about had it with broken high chairs.
My wife went into full on nesting/baking mode during the last week of her pregnancy. We were kicking back on Labor Day weekend while she was browsing for some different cooking applications on her iPhone. She wanted to try an app that could make searching for recipes a little less stressful and more portable when we would have our little one around.
I floated her my original-gangster 3G not too long ago (which she loves – and is consequently bat-sh*t slow compared to the iPhone 4). She decided that she was going to nest and turn out some bomb-ass cookies, 39 weeks into her pregnancy (I said that she was nesting, she had no idea what she was doing).
Keep in mind that this Allrecipes.com app is not only for parents or pregnant womens. This is just a really awesome app to have, whether you know how to cook or not. All you need is the time and a little reading comprehension. And money.. or food stamps. OR a really nice relative or friend with money. Or a personal chef. Preferably one with an iPhone.
It’s been covered time and time again: television is bad, and too much television is worse. Most journals and scientific outlets have narrowed down a preschooler’s “window of worse” …
