Three Things

Well, I have a few things kicking around in my brain, and as usual...I'm putting them here...
First, I was at the health club today. The kiddos were in the stroller, and I was digging around for my id card so we could get in. The Little Man was in the front of the stroller, and the guy behind the desk was goo-gooing at him and trying to get him to talk. Of course The Little Man was being Mr. Shy Guy (which is totally normal for a two year old). The guy behind the desk says "I think he has Aspergers Syndrome." What!!! Who says that?!? What kind of idiot makes a joke like that?!? I shrugged it off and chalked it up to you obviously have no sense, and no children...but it p*ssed me off!!! Idiot!

Second, I was talking (yes, actually talking on the telephone) to a fellow blogger (Musings of a Housewife). I read her blog, and it always seems she is doing something cool, and blogging related. I asked her why/how she always has so much cool stuff to do? It came down to there are just a lot of cool bloggers in her area that do stuff. Imagine that...cool bloggers doing stuff. This got me to wondering...and I'm asking this question (yes, the wheels are turning)...Where are my Midwest bloggers? You don't have to out yourself, I'm just wondering who the Midwesterners are?

Third, on a totally shallow front...yes, I am still torturing myself with Grey's Anatomy. 'Eh, it's been an OK season, I mean at least Izzy isn't sleeping with George:P I just had to say...I loved seeing Denny tonight! *sigh* Denny. I loved Denny, that was the height of Grey's, and good TV. Did you watch? Wasn't it good to see Denny?

  1. Wow. What an insensitve jerk. You are right - who says that???

  2. Loved the Denny. hating Izzy's hair.
    I have a friend with a kid with Asberger's.. I would have told the guy, "Nah. wish he did. we'd get ride all the rides at Disney with no lines.."

  3. Oh my gosh. I can't believe he said that!!! I would have tackled him!

    ReplyDelete
  4. What a jerk. I think he has diarrhea of the mouth disease.

    So sad. I wish there were cool bloggers around here too.

  5. I thought it was kinda weird to see Denny...but it was good that they showed that she's not over him.

  6. The dude couldn't just say "what a cute child" instead he has to say something asinine. I would have been a smart A and asked him where he got his medical degree.

    I'm a midwest blogger (Chicago area), but so uncool. So, I can't help you there. :)

    As for Grey's... eh. When they didn't kill off Grey, the show kind of 'jumped the shark' for me. Although I do love two characters on the show, but can't remember their names, the one was playing doctor with a robot, the other is the black surgeon of the female persuasion. When they are on the screen, I somewhat pay attention.

  7. I think that the Denny story line was the only good one that Izzy has ever had. The others have all seemed too shallow.

  8. what the fuck would some idiot say something like that. you hsould print out a book all about autism and give it to him and tell him to educate himself as well as an emily post book on etiquette !!!

    second....i meet joanne at the leapfrog event. i joined njmoms blog and it has been such a wonderful community to be involved with.

    i have given up on greys - just didn't keep my interest anymore.

  9. First - I would have slapped the idiot in the health club.

    Second - I'm in Texas. Sorry!

    Third - Denny is pretty hot...I liked seeing him too. Even if Izzy annoys the heck out of me.

  10. Wow, I can't imagine not saying something to that guy. People like that do not learn unless they are told how rude they are. I have a copule of them in my church.

    I am a midwesterner. Middle of Minnesota. Close enough to the cities to do things there.

  11. Midwest transplant here. Chicago burbs.
    Love Grey's but haven't kept up this season yet.

    ReplyDelete
  12. ERRR I don't know why people make stupid comments like that...what a JERK!!! I heart Grey's but I'm with you this season has been disappointing.

    Oh if I live close to ya... we would totally being doing fun stuff together.

  13. 1-what the?? was that guy thinking??

    2- too bad I live in Utah.

    3- I Miss Denny too!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I agree: they should bring back sexy Denny Duquette. That man makes my knees jell-o. *swoon*

    The guy at the health club? Turn his ass in- totally inappropriate. Who says that crap?

    I'm from OH, does that count as midwestern? ;-)

  15. I know two boys with Asperger's Syndrome and it is the least funny thing in the world. He is an idiot. I am a midwesterner - St. Louis, MO. I was a member of the St. Louis Blogger's Guild but couldn't ever make any of the meetings or activities due to other stuff in my life. Maybe once the kids are older.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Dude, I am emailing you right now to invite you to hang out with THIS COOL Midwest Blogger. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  17. That was a horrid horrid joke!
    I'm originally from the midwest, but now living up in northern wisconsin... and I wish I was one of those bloggers doing cool stuff ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Crazy about the Aspergers guy. My nephew is autistic. I'm not sure what I would have said to that.

    I'll out myself as a Minnesota blogger.

    ReplyDelete
  19. eeeeeehhhhh.

    my attention span for Grey's anatomy is fading.

    seriously- a total JERK.

    hmm.

    are you at 24Hr Fit? that place is a ZOOOOOOOOOOO. There is nothing like taking a full brain out on the treadmill!!

    hope your mind is feeling more relaxed:-)

  20. 1st - IDIOT for sure
    2nd - I'm midwestern!
    3rd - never seen the show

    ReplyDelete
  21. 1. What an idiot!
    2. TX--sorry! Although I did meet up with a fellow blogger today for the kids to play.
    3. I'm lucky to watch The Office before being needed for something. But I heart Denny--will have to catch it online.

    ReplyDelete
  22. What and utter moron!!! I am not sure how you didn't reach across the counter and smack him. I wish I was a Midwest blogger I would totally hang out with you.

    ReplyDelete
  23. How rude! Was that supposed to be funny? I hope you said something to him.

    So. Cal, sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You should have asked him how many times he's been punched in the forehead for his comments.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I must have missed something. When did Izzy and what's his face start sleeping together for real?

    As for the Aspergur comment you could have just asked if he had a personal connection.

    Midwest? Sorry. I'm all south baby.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haven't watched last night's Gray's yet, but know I will love it. Always do. Also, what the hell to the guy with the Asperger's comment. That is completely freakish.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wait a minute. The phone? Waz dat?

    ReplyDelete
  28. You showed a lot of control! I would have said out loud that he was an idiot! How rude. Some people?!
    Ha you didn't want to crop my hair?! hahahaha! Nope, I am a long hair kinda chick!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I spent two years thinking I was the only blogger in my area, then in the last year I have found a few more. I'm up here in Wisconsin. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. First of all, Dude is a total moron. I would have said,"No, I just think he doesn't like you." Idiot!

    As for Grey's, I was so drooling over Denny! I'm glad they tease us with a glimpse of him every once and awhile. Love me some Denny!

  31. Don't know about being 'cool' or not, but I'm in the midwest (Michigan). :)

  32. Great to meet you via David. A busy week it would seem. Here in UK we are enjoying a few moments of autumn sunshine.................but I DOUBT it will be here for long, nay rain and dullness is what we are having most of the time.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would report that guy to his boss. He needs to keep his freakin mouth shut. What a dumb thing to say.

    I live in Utah. Is that mid-west? Feel like a foreign country to me.

    I :heart: Denny. Every single time he comes on the screen I tear up. I think when I am an old lady sitting in a nursing home watching the fish tank....I will think about Denny.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Came over from David M's blog, where you were featured in Sunday Roast.
    Liked you good advice and what a good idea for a blog name.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi I am over from David's - great Sunday Roast.

    I don't watch Grey's Anatomy (Ok, you can get up off the floor now) lol

    I agree about that guy - I can't believe he said that! I mean, are we all mini psychiatrists now? Wow.

    Good to "meet" you. Pop over to Cath's Cradle and CrazyCath's Reflections. Follow through the profile. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Uh... I would be quite irked if someone said that to me about my kid... I do hope you said something to him like WTF??

    Wish we got Grey's here - I miss that show! Sadly, I just read the recaps online. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Gawd, I haven't even read your roast yet, but the baby patrol was so cute I just clicked on your blog and came on over...I'll run back to David's and read the roast in a bit...next time you see the idiot at Work Out center, do the world a favor...punch him in the mouth...maybe it will teach him to keep smartass remarks where they belong...and that's not out in public...hope you find your midwestern bloggers...I'm sort of South East myself...well not sort of...I'd dead on South East...beautiful wee ones! Back to the roast!

    I don't watch Grey's anymore, but I did like Denny. Someone seriously accused your kid of having a disability because he wasn't talking to a stranger - WHAT?!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. The comment...how ignorant.
    Didn't start watching Grey's until after Denny. I am a Wisconsin Blogger.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I LOVE when Denny is on Greys. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! He is so gorgeous. And really, I'll stop here. I could go on for hours!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ahh, what a jerk! You don't ever say that to a mommy about her child!! Tacky!
    OMG! You have to go read my blog, I make fun of Izzy in a couple of posts, I just posted one on her tonight right before I read your blog! What a coincidence!! So funny!

    ReplyDelete
  43. 1st- What an A-hole!!! Holy crap! Idiot.

    2nd- I'm a midwesterner!!!

    3rd- I haven't gotten a chance to watch this week's Grey's yet! Ack! I can't wait to see Denny. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am a Midwestern blogger from Ohio. OHmommy from ClassyChaos is also from around here and so is Ethalpy Mamma. Not sure about doing cool stuff though.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Came across you from Moms Without Blogs...and as a fellow Midwesterner...I can honestly say, I'm a blogger who does nothing cool.

    And I'm okay with that. ;)
