Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - New Facebook Buttons
Deva Dalporto

New Facebook Buttons

So rumor has it Facebook is going to install a “sympathy” button so we can all avoid that uncomfortable moment when something bad happens to one of our “friends” and we don’t know whether to “like” it to show support or not. I mean, how do you “like” when someone’s dog dies? AWWWKWARD. Which got me thinking, there’s a few more buttons I’d like to suggest to the peeps at Facebook: READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - Who Are You To Judge Me?
    Angela Keck

    Who Are You To Judge Me?

    Are you so perfect that you feel entitled to sit back and look for others’ flaws? Who appointed you the ruler by which all the rest of us should be measured to determine if we are successful or failures?

    If I choose to do something—anything—in a way other than the way you do it does that automatically mean I do it wrong? Have you ever considered for even a moment that others may find fault with the way you do things? READ MORE

    The Vultures Are Waiting

    My daughter convinced me to watch The Rachel Zoe Project on the cable network, and as I’m staring at these twenty-one-year-old, anorexic-looking models, I’m thinking two thoughts: 1)Someone should tie these girls down and force-feed them doughnuts, and 2) Was I ever that young? READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - Pink Shmink
    Expressing Motherhood

    Pink Shmink

    It’s not like I hate pink. I don’t.

    Actually, quite the contrary. I love pink. It’s my favorite color. I just don’t like one month dedicated to a disease. I don’t like the hype surrounding a specific color of ribbon to sell products and services that don’t really have anything to do with breast cancer. I don’t like to read about how very little of that money actually goes to breast cancer research. READ MORE

    Cat Puke, Crisis And Honesty

    I’m going to post a photo of cat puke as my Facebook status or maybe just my broken air conditioner. I’m tired of the parade of adorable smiling children, close ups of flowers and panoramic shots of mountains and oceans at sunset.

    I’ve had it with the never-before make-up shots of smiling and single women trying to be age-appropriate and sexy saying, “Notice me” – all of which I have posted, in the last month. READ MORE
