Too much, too confidential, too funny!

Lots and lots of stuff going on here at Chez Stressful. We're all OK, just some heavy duty outside stuff that I can't share as it's not my story to tell. What I can share is that the furnace seems to have given up the ghost sometime in the last day or two, and we can't get it repaired until around noon on Thursday. It's chilly! My son has decided that it's easier and more convenient for him to keep his clothing in the front hall and has thus taken over the hallway, much to my chagrin. He will be cleaning it up this weekend, much to his chagrin. And finally, the Girl has gotten over her hair crisis and is loving the "do".

Meanwhile, on the political front, I'm totally loving the Sarah Palin clothing fiasco. I don't know why it amuses me so, but the fact that Ms. Six-Pack is wearing $150,000 worth of clothing from Needless Markup just makes me chortle. You have GOT to wonder whose stupid idea THAT was. I mean, if they're trying to sell her as Josephine Average, wouldn't she be shopping at Target or JC Penney's instead of Saks? In fact, what clothing stores are there in Wasilla? Walmart? A quick google of Wasilla AK Shopping shows absolutely NOTHING in the way of clothing stores. Nada. Zip. Certainly not a mall with Saks and Niemans. Looking further I found 2 bridal salons, a Famous Footwear, a lingere store, a children's boutique, and one store called The Source Clothing. It's NOT the urbane shopping district that one could possibly spend $15,000 on clothing, never mind $150,000.

When the Republican party is caught spending this kind of money on outfitting Carabou Barbie, they say they are planning to donate the clothing to charity. Because let's face it, what poor woman doesn't want a $1200 silk jacket, slightly worn, in her closet? A jacket that could feed her family for 6 months. And they think they're not out of touch with reality. These shenanigans are totally cracking me.

As Craig Ferguson says "nothing says hockey mom like dropping $150K on bling." ZING!

Wasilla's just a suburb of Anchorage and Anchorage has pretty much everything you'd find at a mall in the lower 48--Coldwater Creek, Abercrombie, Hot Topic, Banana Republic, plus plenty of boutiques. Too bad she wasn't interested in funneling some of that $150,000 back into the local economy.
