Plinky.com: “Soda bans?”

Today’s Plinky.com prompt was, “Should soda be banned in all schools?” Here’s my response and the Flickr.com pic I selected to illustrate it. ;o)

Oh, I don’t really care. Sorry, nutrition nazis. I agree that it’s not the best choice for growing bodies, but this seems like more of a personal decision for the kids and reasonable advice for parents to offer. After two children, I am just SO TIRED of the oppressive regimes in schools that are trying to be everything and totally failing. Stupid rules about hair color and belts, poor counseling when grades fall, etc. Can you guys just teach the effing subjects and leave the rest to us? I’d be willing to concede this proposed ban if I thought for one second the encroachment would stop.

Plinky.com: “Tech Savvy”

Today’s Plinky.com prompt was, “In what ways do you wish you were more tech savvy?” Here’s my response and the Flickr.com pic I selected to illustrate it. ;o)

I wish I were better at coding websites. I can fumble around with basic HTML and cascading style sheets, and I understand the basics of WordPress. That’s about it. As soon as I get a good bead on what’s going on, the world charges on past me. :o/

Plinky.com: “Vending Machines”

Today’s Plinky.com prompt was, “Name something that you wish you could buy from vending machines.” Here’s my response and the Flickr.com pic I selected to illustrate it. ;o)

Clothes, shoes and purse! What if you popped a button, broke a strap, or just dressed too casually for the occasion? Would be nice to have a super-quick alternative. Of course, they would HAVE to have plus sizes or I’d be mad I was missing out.
