What I’m not thanking anybody for.

November 22, 2006 at 11:46 AM (Holiday) ()

1.Food Network cooking shows.

You can never take the time, buy the exact ingredients, measure up, have it taste right…all of these little regional/ethnic variants on Martha Stewart/Graham Kerr. I hate ’em all.

2. Job boards. You always find something that will fit well…either for a bilingual posting or two days after the posting closed.

3. There are *never* enough sweaters in your closet.

4. Assistive technology that is neither assistive nor high tech.

5. Make up/clothespeople that refuse to assist in making a heavyset woman look her best, *while she’s still big* (I think that’s *so* important, and the clerks don’t)
