I’m With Monica Lewinsky

I never thought I’d say this but I’m PROUD of Monica Lewinsky.  Not for what she did back when she was 22 years old, although I can forgive that (and all the best reasons are summed up in this post by Baby Sideburns). We ALL did stupid things we’re ashamed of and didn’t want the world to know about when we were young. We just didn’t get bullied by an entire political system and creamed in worldwide media for those things.  We were able to wake up, do whatever kind of walk of shame was called for, move on with our lives, live and learn.

But not Monica.

Why I'm PROUD of Monica Lewinsky - Toulouse & TonicShe was taken advantage of by a very powerful and magnetic man.   I can’t stand comments about how she’s as culpable as Bill Clinton is.  She. Is.

How To Give Your Kids an Old Fashioned Halloween

Miss the Halloweens of your youth? Give your kids an old-fashioned Halloween!

I love Halloween but I have to admit, it’s not what it used to be (even in my Sexy Halloween Costume for Moms). When I was a young ‘un, we ran wild in the streets in unsupervised packs. We tilted our heads back and poured straws full of plain old refined sugar tinted with red dye #4 into our mouths. Candy was breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight buffet on the Halloween cruise.

How to give your kids an old fashioned Halloween - Toulouse & TonicWe snuck it from our parents’ candy bowl no matter how many times they shooed us away and then made at least 2 trips around the entire neighborhood, [Read more...]
