Attention check forgers and children’s art collectors!
I’m happy to announce that every single preorder copy of my book will be signed by me! (My publisher assures me that this is somehow desirable.)
Always looking for art projects, I thought it would be fun if the boys “signed” the books as well. Obviously I have very little control over how many they’ll want to sign - so I can only promise that the first 1,000 copies will also come with a one of a kind crayon scrawl from the boys! Here is a picture of my co-authors hard at work on their “signatures”. My 4yo has decided it’s his job to make sure that all the words on the bookplates are unreadable and my 2yo is loving scribbling over the picture of his face. These are truly priceless works of art. Thanks again for all of your support - I think you’ll really like this book.

i need to get a real job so i can stop crying over expensive lingerie and start crying in expensive lingerie
I’ve been sitting at the health center waiting for 25 minutes for them to tell me there’s nothing they can do for me just so I can prove I was sick to my teachers and then I still have to go to my last class because he doesn’t accept any excuses and I need to save my free absences. I’m calling shenanigans.
In order to protect their dominant market share, Keurig makers Green Mountain Coffee Roasters has been on a bit of an aggressive tear of late. As with computer printers, getting the device in the home is simply a gateway to where the real money is: refills. But Keurig has faced the “problem” in recent years of third-party pod refills that often retail for 5-25% less than what Keurig charges. As people look to cut costs, there has also been a growing market for reusable pods that generally run anywhere from five to fifteen dollars.
Keurig’s solution to this problem? In a lawsuit (pdf) filed against Keurig by TreeHouse Foods, they claim Keurig has been busy striking exclusionary agreements with suppliers and distributors to lock competing products out of the market. What’s more, TreeHouse points out that Keurig is now developing a new version of their coffee maker that will incorporate the java-bean equivalent of DRM — so that only Keurig’s own coffee pods can be used in it.
Friends don’t let friends use pod coffee makers.
Drip coffee makers are cheaper, the grounds are cheaper and higher quality, and the coffee that comes out of them is drinkable and not watery blechness. What else do you need?

I’m becoming increasingly convinced that Bill O’Reilly is a satirical character and in a couple years he’s gonna be like “haha jk no one’s actually this stupid.”
