–Plastic bag rehab. I admit it. It’s time I go… get some reusable grocery bags. Method, maker of nontoxic home-cleaning products, is giving away this stylish bag when you purchase $20 in Method products. Go here to download the form.
–Jungle boogie. If you wanna get a head start on holiday gifts, how about this for a stocking stuffer: the 40th Anniversary Edition of Walt Disney’s Jungle Book. The classic movie has become a favorite in our house. My kids can’t get enough of the songs “I Wan’na Be Just Like You” and “The Bare Neccessities.” They sing and dance to it constantly. Like many Disney classics, this movie is only available for purchase for a limited time. So get it before it’s gone.

What’s it like to work at a Planned Parenthood clinic? As you might imagine, it’s not easy—but boy, it must be immensely rewarding to help so many women in need of affordable, reliable health care. Experience some of the daily struggles these brave folks face by reading I Am Emily X, a blog by a small group of Planned Parenthood workers and activists.

Here’s a fun thing you can do with your kids online: Build Your Wild Self. It’s a new website tool from the New York Zoos and Aquarium that lets you create a human-animal hybrid out of your imagination. It’s like paper dolls with a zoological twist!

I’m hooked on a new reality show that’s so incredibly bad—it’s good. The other night, there was nothing on and I was too beat to do anything. So, I flipped to the new MTV show, A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila. The MySpace queen/Playboy model is looking for “the one” among the men and women on the show (she’s bi). Shenanigans ensue. I felt a twinge of guilt watching two entire hours of it, but I got over it.

    I’m glad to see that I am not the only mom out that that caught (most of) Tila Tequila… It was bad, but I couldn’t turn away. I have to say that I also caught Donald Trump’s new show Pageant Place and it might be addicting too.

    I might have to add both to my top secret Tivo list……

  2. we are going to start with the canvas bags, thanks for the info – it will be an adjustment I’m sure.
    But I know I will feel better.
    Can’t wait to get Jungle Book for the little ones.

  3. NOOOO!!! She brings badness to my (and her) name.

    I’ve never, ever met someone else with my name before. (Although people have told me they know of Tela/Tila/Tealas) I liked knowing I was one of a few. And then this is the woman that rises to fame…

    And you made fun of us for Rock of Love?!?!?

  6. Anonymous,

    I’m resisting the urge to delete your comment as spam because I wouldn’t want anyone to think we don’t encourage open discussion. But c’mon, at least write something specific to my post, instead of just copying and pasting some B.S. “top 10” list from your organization’s propaganda materials. LAME.
