What To Do When a Good Furby Goes Bad

Editor's Note: I almost -- THISCLOSE -- caved to the Furby craze this year and purchased one for my sons. After reading this hilarious (but OMGSCARY!) post by Christina at A Mommy Story, I am glad I didn't -- and am emailing all family members to warn them against purchasing one for my sons. I don't need scary toys! -Jenna

What Happens When Your Furby Becomes Evil:

Mira's Furby was suddenly possessed by a new personality who was mean. It growled at her, it snapped at her with an angry voice if she tried to pet it, and it made retching noises when she tried to feed it, as if the iPad foods weren't good enough for it. Occasionally it showed little flames in its eyes.

WTF happened? Did we feed it after midnight?

Bathroom Reading Month: Do You Read in The Bathroom?

When I went over to other people’s houses I was, and continue to be, fascinated by what reading material they keep in their bathrooms. Many like my family had the ubiquitous Reader’s Digest. Sometimes there were joke books, the precursors to the Uncle John’s Bathroom Readers, which at our friend’s place you have to skip the powder room and go to the full bathroom to read. Every now and then I’ll see a copy of the newspaper or maybe even a novel. Then, of course, are the people who don’t keep any reading material in their bathrooms. I’m sorry, I don’t understand them.   Read more >
