Odds and ends and giveaways

Last month, I invited anyone who wanted to join in the catalog fun to blog about the overabundance of catalogs they get. And only Kristi from Interrupted Wanderlust played along. Her catalog post is way funny. And did you know she also has a fabulous blog about cooking for babies and toddlers? (BTW, you can sign up here to get rid of unwanted catalogs.)

Then back in August, I posted a review of the Little Einstein's DVD Rocket's Firebird Rescue. Well, I just got two more copies in the mail for some reason! So I'm giving them to you. Just leave a comment here, and I'll pick winners over the weekend. (Update: Congratulations to winners Awesome Mom and Stacey, who got picked by!)

I was a teenager when Baby Jessica fell down a well and created a media stir as the nation prayed and watched as she was rescued. Now, Jessica is 21 years old and in the news because she's supposed to be collecting the cool million in money that people donated to her. She is a mother. To a kid who is Fly's age. But Jessica's parents are practically my age. Do I need to tell you how old this makes me feel to know I could be a grandmother but instead I have a toddler?!

Speaking of feeling old ... is it still considered trichotillomania if you pull only the gray hairs out of your head?

No it's called "primpotillomania." :-)

I hope not because I am doing it too. My mom keeps telling me that three gray hairs will pop up for every one I pull and I am starting to believe her.

I stand far enough back from the mirror so that I can't see the greys sneaking through. It helps if you let your eyes go blurry too, like you are looking at one of those magic eye picture thingys.

Oh wow. She's 21 already? And with a toddler? That makes me feel ancient too.

And the grays and I have made friends a long time ago. I don't even bother plucking them out anymore.

Thank you for mentioning Mush!

If I tried to pull out my grey hairs, I would be bald. Seriously, it is so sad and I am so young :( I would love the DVD!

I have to say that coloring your hair is much easier. I have more gray hairs than my 82 year old mother - sad but true.

I would *love* to win a Little Einsteins DVD!!

Re the catalogs (I missed that post, I guess). Lately I've been getting a lot of catalogs from Victoria's Secret, and my inbox has been getting flooded with emails from them, too. I tell ya ~ you order one little nightie and YAM! - they've got their hooks in you forever. So what does that say about me? Hmm. Well, it tells you that after three kids, there's something missing at my house ;-)

I'm in on the DVD thing. At 4 months Baby K loves Little Einstein's. My youngest niece (4) watches it at my mom's during the day and Baby K is totally absorbed in the show when it's on.

Ok don't pull the hair out! Eventually it will not grow back the shaft just shrivels up .... and then you are old with thin hair rather than just old!!! hehe (my bff was a hairstylist for a while before becoming a nurse, she was also a body piercer ... cool chic I tell ya!)

Well, I'm not sure becasue I don't have any grey's all SILVER!

But in Jr. High I did pull out all my eyelashes and eyebrows. I didn't know it was a "disorder". Dang. I missed out on therapy and drugs and I actually lived through it.

I'm sure you'll live through pulling out the greys.
