The Weeklies ~ Week 21

The Weekly Re-cap: This week we talked about a working dog and a tree-climbing rooster.  I told you about a website called Opposites Connect that is launching soon and a bad date I went on.  You got to meet and learn more about my friend Jessica, we talked about loaded questions, bloggers & baseball….  Lastly I told you all about a fundraiser that takes place TONIGHT called Chase For A Cure.  Be there – all the cool kids are going!!

Cast of Romantically Challenged

The Weekly Sad TV Situation: Romantically Challenged was canceled 😦

The Weekly Schadenfreude: New York State Governor Patterson wanted to put New York State workers on a temporary 1 day per week un-paid furlough.  A judge put a temporary restraining order on the furloughs.  So instead Patterson may lay off 10,000+ state workers.  I bet 1 day off isn’t looking so bad now huh?  If you have a job be thankful you’re employed.

The Weekly Tea: We broke out my Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker this week.  We made some Lipton White Tea with Island Mango and Peach Iced Sweet Tea and it was yummy!!

The Weekly Food: We had some leftover pork loin and smashed potatoes from last nights No Destination dinner at The Mill Tavern after the ride for dinner tonight.

The Weekly Holy Shit Headline: A 13-year-old middle schooler named Raymond Hosier was suspended for wearing rosary beads to school.  The school says their dress code states that beads may not be worn because they’ve been known to be gang symbols.  The young man wears them as a remembrance of his older brother Joey who was killed by car back in 2005 and for his uncle who died of cancer two weeks ago.  The news story is here.  The comments on the story were VERY interesting too!

The Weekly Activity: Job hunting, blogging and networking.

The Weekly Damn It: Key Bank is now giving out an 8GB iPod Touch if you open a new account and do a few things to establish the account.  I’m bummed because I already have an account and I’m not eligible!!  Anyone want to open an account and give it to me??

The kids are in control!!

So yesterday I was on a Southwest flight.  We boarded the plane.  I sat down, and buckled up.  The plane was only about 1/3 full so I didn’t have anyone sitting next to me.  Their was a woman sitting across the aisle with her 2 daughters.  Her husband was sitting in the row across the aisle in front of me.  She says to her daughter “Tell your Daddy he needs a nice big stiff one.”  After the daughter (who was probably about 3 years old) told her Daddy he needed “a nice big stiff one” I sat there in wonderment.  First off, it’s 7AM, nobody NEEDS a drink at 7AM.  2nd off you’re teaching a very young child that drinking at 7AM is okay.  Then you’re teaching them to say a phrase that can be misconstrued and repeated to teacher, babysitter, grandparent….  Not good parenting if you ask me.

The kids were screamers too!  Not my idea of a good well-rounded child.  You’re movie is over.  Don’t scream at the top of your lungs.  Say “Mommy, my movie is over.”  I know people can’t control everything their children do.  But it was obvious these parents just let their kids do whatever they want and they respond to it by giving the kids whatever they want.  I didn’t see any parenting.  I see a kid in control!!

Oh well.  Glad they’re not my kids.  I’ll remember things like this in the future if I have some as a how-not-to situation.

What’s the worst child/parent situation you’ve ever had to deal with on a plane?

(And for those of you that got the Kelly Cornick-Crouth interview list email last night.  Please disregard.  It will get posted, just not today.  Stay tuned!!)
