Apparently we are getting a lot of spam... I apologize for not catching it.

In the meantime, if you get any spam, please let the mods know instead of deleting so we can report it. You can actually report it to us in this thread for now.

EDIT 1: As a temporary measure (I hope), I have set a recaptcha requirement for all non-members who post comments. I hate to do this because I realize recaptcha can be problematic for some people (myself included, honestly), but hopefully it'll be very temporary I tested this one and it didn't work, so instead, all non-member comments will be screened for now, as a temporary measure. Please let me know if this causes anyone major problems.

I've been wanting to snark this book for a while but haven't been able to find it. Where do you guys usually find your books? Anyway, I finally found it at one of the local libraries and scooped it up. It is SO snarkable, and so rage-inducing, but also kind of awesome in a way.

BSC #14: HELLO, MALLORY OR RUN MAL! RUN FOR THE FREAKIN’ HILLS! THE END!

Hello my peeps! How’s everyone doing with the rain and otherwise crappy weather? It was raining so damn hard the other day, I wouldn’t have been surprised if I had started seeing two of every animal walking down the road towards a big boat. Just sayin’.

Anyhoo… it’s time to finish this up. See I’m due in about two and a half weeks, so you guys probably won’t hear a lot from me for a while. Don’t worry; I’ll be back posting here and my other sites… hopefully soon. Thank you for reading/commenting and just enjoying the last two years with me; you guys forever rock and I’m so happy/blessed for every one of you!

Love you guys!

Now let’s do this:

Well folks, this is the last you’ll be seeing of me for a while… at least until Peanut’s born and on a good schedule and I have time to snark. Don’t worry… I’ll be back with more, hopefully soon! Thank you all for reading/commenting and I’ll see you soon!

Babysitters' Winter Vacation, part C [Nov. 6th, 2016|10:18 pm]
Baby-sitters Club Snark-fest!

The stupid is about to be kicked up a notch or three.  Get ready for every older-guy crush in the rest of the series to suddenly not other you anymore.

Also do you ever wonder what the other parents in Stoned-by-the-Brook do without the BSC to improperly raise their kids for them?  How the hell do they grocery-shop if they can't ditch their kids at home?  Do they all starve, or eat the tenderest one?

Prologue through Chapter OH GOD NO MORE
Chapters 5 through Chapter Whine

Just to err on the side of caution, trigger warning for chapter 13.  It's Claudia being stupid, and everything is innocent in the end, but her belief gives the chapter a bad feeling (Chris Hansen makes an appearance in a gif) that I think should get a trigger warning.  I'm typing this paragraph after finishing, and really need to open a beer and read something else so I don't have nightmares, so that means trigger warning for you.

And just a reminder, stuff like this are exact quotes from the book.

Wok zees wayCollapse )

I told you I was NOT kidding about how bad this is.  To tell the truth, I'm slightly nauseated, and it's not from caprese and beer.  I need to actually open this bottle of beer now.

Babysitters' Winter Vacation, part deuce [Nov. 4th, 2016|09:40 pm]
Baby-sitters Club Snark-fest!

Though I'm not getting teh luvs (hearts around that and shizz), we continue on the fail-train?

For posterity: Prologue - Chapter 4

I wrote this about ten hours ago, and the first part last night though I posted it tonight.  I wanted to run chapter 7 by a couple friends of mine who are black for their thoughts after first consulting them about something that happens in that chapter.  It's a sensitive topic that is dealt with in a very snark-worthy way, and so I feel what what I say needs to get approval of people who have experience dealing with real, true, major racism (one whose family even had to move out of where they were in Texas because of how bad the threats were and how little help they were getting from the police).  So that chapter snark has their approval EXACTLY as it will be posted, aside from a few of their thoughts in brackets, and future Jessi-chapters will also be given to them to read first and approve or smack me upside the head.  As the snark in chapter 7 stands, one of those friends, who I've known since we were kids and who hated these books, says that what I say doesn't go anywhere near far enough, and that, as kids, these books upset her because of how Jessi was made into something of a farce by a privileged white woman who acts like she's never seen a real life black person before.

Head-desk, face-palm this way.Collapse )

Wait until we get to the WTFery with Claudia.  Mallory will be pretty much age-appropriate.  Dawn will manage to be sympathetic, though I still hate her for the shit she pulled with Ashley.  Mary Anne will continue needing therapy.  Kristy will continue being Kristy.  Jessi will make you want to scream and ban her from being around kids.  Stacey's off experiencing "the world."

We will also have a return of bunkie-politics.

And I?  I'm going to enjoy some Earl Grey tea, see if I can find any of my old crushes on Facebook, and watch some more Frasier.  I love that show.  Oh!  Another cut!

CUT!!Collapse )

All right, I have to do this one.  Now.  This is the most fail-filled book I can think of in the entire series.  There's unhealthy levels of boy-obsession, privilege out the ass, mind-blowing disregard for safety of children, wild accusations of racism based on nothing resulting in the mistreatment of a child, bullying that makes you feel bad for Dawn, dreams of pedophilia...wait, feeling bad for Dawn?  Yes, it'll happen!

Bold italicized phrases, like this, are exact quotes from the book.  There will be a lot of them.  So I'm just disclosing right now that that's what that means.

Stop!  Cover time!


Aren't they awfully close to be throwing snowballs at each other? Larger image. I can't tell who is Mary Anne or Kristy, or who is Stacey or Dawn.   And a week of fun this won't be.  Only Stacey will really have an enjoyable time, and Mal a bit.  Kristy's too competitive to have fun, and Dawn will cry, and Mary Anne will be hearltess and mopey, and Jessi will see racism where none exists and be mean to a kid, and Claud will be hurt because a grown man won't become a pedophile.

Oh. Spoiler alert.  Yeah.

French fry, pizza, this way.Collapse )

This book...  It's THE book.  THE one where the worst case of a crush on an older guy happens, THE worst reason to expect someone is racist, THE most blatant shows of Mary Anne's codependency, THE most everything.  The ineptness of the adults is also only just beginning....  Hold on to your heads and pad the walls.  You're going to need it.

Last time on true tales from the WTF pile...
Chapters 1-8

Okie dokie, artichokies.

Let's roll.  Always remember that I love you, and doing this hurts me a lot more than it could hurt you.  Like, for real.  The ballet bullshit makes me want to literally scream at Ann.

Carry on, my wayward snarkersCollapse )Bonus author's note!  Outside the cut for the sheer bullshit.

Ann claims she took ballet as a kid, and I don't believe her any more than I believe she was a teacher.  She fucks up so many basic things.  So many.  SO MANY.  If she'd ever taken classes, she'd know that ballet is hard, yet she makes it sound so easy.  And by the time this book came out, she was famous enough to have called up the New York Ballet or American Ballet Theater and asked for help.  But she didn't.

So Anne is a lying liar that lies.

Also I already have Winter Vacation started in it.  I'm going no-holds-barred in that one.  Be forewarned.
