    Never mind that I am so fucking old that I used to babysit for Simon. His blog is awesome, even though I don't really get all the references.

I once gave myself a bang trim while on the phone and running late for a meeting. Someone later that day referred to me as Prince Valiant. You'd think I'd have learned my lesson, but several years ago I reenacted the whole painful event. I'm a maverick: I refuse to learn from my mistakes. Who's with me?


Very excited to have my list mentioned on the fabulous Dr. Strangelove blog! IMMORTALITY AT LAST!


When I run a fever, I feel compelled to cut my hair....and I do. It's an odd side effect of illness.

Fortunately, I have no list for my children-in-law to consider. I have volumes, but no lists.


There is nothing better than cutting bangs and watching the soft woosh of hair cover the white sink like mini pickup sticks. Second to this is the addition of more hair as you dive in to fix the unfixable.

Voila mini bangs.


Claudia's list is worthy of much praise and re-posting.
Ann, I particularly love your last paragraph about DIY hair styling. It made me do a weird guffaw/hoot thing.
You're all so daring and ballsy for attempting to cut your own hair. I've never done that, not once. I'm certain it would end badly.

Your eldest came home for the surgery? See, you did something right.

When my mother told her college friend that all three children showed up for lumpectomy, her friend said, "The little shits pay off in the end, don't they?"


No amount of planning will work. You will either like her or not. I have two of the best DIL's, some just because their personalities work with mine and also because I have learned to keep my mouth shut (well, most of the time). I do believe it takes a lot of work but the rewards are priceless.

Don't waste your time to write a list. Just look at how they treat their Mom and that is how they will treat their wives-the good, the bad and the ugly. :)


I would like to comment but I'm late for a meeting.


where can i see this list?


Oh, Ann,you sell yourself way too short! There are days I would have given anything to have a mother-in-law like you! Full of honesty, humor, and joie de vivre. Your DIL's will be VERY lucky women :)
