Megan Thinks Being Homeless Is Hard

Megan, someone in a wonderful life, has been contemplating homelessness – and her conclusions are amazing and inspiring. Oh wait, no they aren’t.

Homeless is hard. It’s hard for those who are homeless, of course. It’s hard for me, too.

Asking the universe, “Are they homeless because they spend every dollar they get on drugs and alcohol? Are they dangerous?” and wondering if they will pull a knife on her if she asks them questions, Megan goes on to gloat that she, thankfully, will never end up in their shoes.

We have family and we have friends. If something ever were to happen and our dollars vanished or we lost our jobs, the chances of us becoming homeless are quite frankly 0%.

Reminding everyone she like, omg, donates to like, shelters and stuff you guys so she is totally part of the solution, she says she avoids even direct eye contact with the homeless because everyone has “heard or maybe seen a homeless person actually make a bad decision, like buying alcohol or passed out on a street with a bottle”. She therefore decides, “something is really bad or wrong if they are homeless. I assume there isn’t really anything can do to help them”.

She then wraps it all up by deciding some people don’t deserve to be homeless, but some of them are homeless because of their own bad life decisions. Then she, the Jesus loving, upper middle class white girl who basically just told us she shuffles past the homeless clutching her purse with her eyes averted, tells everyone that “They won’t ever survive if everyone that walks by keeps walking because they need answers.”

Another world altering piece of social commentary from a mommy blogger, ladies and gentleman.

Gala Darling Has A Book Now


Gala Darling, the glitter covered cockroach who will survive every nuclear winter the internet can devise, has announced her “first book”.

This week I submitted my manuscript for my first book! Yes, it’s really happening! Cue loud screaming!

You may know Gala from her decade long attempts to shill self-esteem snake oil in various formats. Saying she has “been asked for a physical copy of Love & Sequins for years, but it never felt like the right time”, Gala says after “whittling, refining, improving, and polishing for months” she was finally ready to send it off into the world. Again.

Again? Yes, again. You see, her book is basically something she already “wrote and released in serial format” over the internet. Like pretty much every other blogger ‘book’ it’s apparently going to be something she wrote and sold like 5 years ago, now wrapped in a cover and filled with “really pretty” pictures.

Hooray! Now a whole new generation can read Gala’s amazing advice about overcoming depression and chasing your dreams.

Cary Randolph Is Moving Back To Missouri

Cary Randolph, “founder“, has apparently announced plans to leave New York City…again.


Speculation about her job status began last week when Cary, who has been the “Senior Editor” at Ralph Lauren Magazine for over a year, posted snarky instagrams indicating she couldn’t care less about fashion week. After a blog post around the same time stating she only worked 10-6 many wondered exactly how secure her job could be. However, at this time Cary has not said why she is leaving the city or whether she is still employed with Ralph Lauren.

Cary has fled the big city before – last time she took off to Newport and penned smug posts about the joys of being free of New York. But since her return three years ago she seemed more committed than ever to becoming a blonde Manhattan socialite, complete with the typical socialite’s default job in fashion publishing, babbling about the Hamptons, and a write up as one of the top 50 “most desirable” bachelorettes in New York City.

After so much time invested in becoming a “bold bitch” editrix, we have to wonder what could be behind this out-of-nowhere decision to chuck it all and return to the midwest.

That Wife No Longer Solo Parenting

Jenna Cole, solo parent, will no longer need all those single mom meetup groups. It seems That Husband has finally taken a position in the same city his family lives in.

Seeing each other every night will take some adjustments on our part. I’ve gotten used to eating what I want, when I want, and putting together something simple and easy for the kids for dinner and I think developing a food routine that involves preparing something for him will be the hardest change for me.

And it sounds like she’s already dreading the bedtime routine – all that icky “canoodling” that might have to happen on a regular basis now that he’s home all the time.

I’m going to be most annoyed by him coming him and telling me things like “You need to go to bed now, or wait an hour” (so he can fall asleep). I’m a grownup and don’t need other people telling me when I can and can’t go to bed! (But I get what he’s asking for :) )

I can’t wait to see how long it takes TH to see exactly how little Jenna appears to accomplish during her #WAHM time. Jenna’s vague posts about their arguments are going to be epic.

NieNie Says An Energy Shot Got Her Off Drugs

Stephanie Nielson, of the NieNie Dialogues, has apparently discovered an exciting new breakthrough in the world of drug addiction and detox.

I couldn’t decide if I really needed the pills to help me function, or if I was addicted.  I think I was both…My doctor introduced me to GungHo, which is an energy shot. I started using it immediately.  It gave me the energy to power through the day without my usual morphine and oxycontin. It was amazing how it suppressed my need for these pain medications. No longer did I need to take pills in the morning to get me going, or move my body, or even feel happy. This whole process took me about three months and then I was free from pain medication all together.

NieNie says she has had post-op pain medication since, but has “been able to stop the medications without any addictive tendencies” thanks to the energy shot. The ingredients list includes niacin and caffeine, as well as some mystical “Cognizin® Citicoline”, which they claim keeps your brain “alert and functioning like a Ninja”.

At last, a real solution to painkiller addiction. Rehab centers around the world can stock up and have those detoxers in and out in no time. And if they start using again, they can always just buy some more and detox themselves. It’s a pumpkin spice syrup season miracle!
