On a typical day, I haul kiddos to school...turn my bootay around...head home to work.

I consider myself lucky that I have found a job where I can work in my running pants, while parking myself in bed. (Yes, at this point, I consider blog design my job...really been working on my game yo;)

I don't know if it's a my generation thing, or just having lived alone for many years, but no matter what I'm doing, while at home, the TV is always on. When I'm blog designing, I hear about a third of what people are saying...blah, blah, blah...Oprah...blah, blah, blah...The View...blah, blah, blah. You get the picture.

Today, I hear Clive Owen on The View pitching his new movie. I look up, 'cause Clive Owen is mad hot, ewww...I don't like his mustache....Nose back in my computer, hearing a third of what he says.

He's talking about his new movie, which I've never heard of. He says "It's a movie about a 14 year old girl who befriends what she thinks is a young man on Facebook. The family goes out of town. She plans a meeting with her friend, and a 40 year old man shows up, and terrible things happen. It's about how the family deals with it."

Well, I can't think of anything I'd like to see less than that:/

I hate this topic, mainly because my first instinct on it is to bury my head in the sand and say, "That's it, my kiddos are never leaving the house!" or "There will be no Internet for kiddos until they are 21!"

I realize how hypocritical it is for a Mom who has built a cottage career out of Blogging and the Internet to say...but dang!

Then I think, if I don't teach them responsible web day, they'll be set free on the Internet with no clue, and I will have taught them nothing about being responsible with it:/

I hate being a grown up...I'm off to bury my head in the sand...


  1. I'm hating this generation of cyber kids. We were recently introduced to the lovely word 'sexting.' So now it's not just strangers they need to fear, but friends.

  2. I realize that people need to be warned - that they need to understand the dangers that exist out on and because of the Internet. And 'people' includes 'The Young'. But I am so tired of things that pander to the seamier side of the "Internet Experience" - things that could happen whether the Internet existed or not. It fosters Fear. It fosters the wrong impression in those, who for one reason or another, cannot or will not think for themselves. My ancient and aging mother STILL cautions me about meeting bloggers (although I have no idea what a pedophile blogger would want with a 65 year old man), even though I have explained to her time and time again that these are people I KNOW - I've just never MET them. Yet. Teach Caution. Not Fear.

    Of course, it's not YOU - it's just a reaction to the whole fear-mongering thing.
