Bad Mood

I'm in a pissy mood today.

School fundraising has started already! Son came home yesterday, the fifth day of school, with a big Zap-A-Snack packet; apparently the principal (oh she who wants no parents around) thinks we should all just dive into selling $16 boxes of frozen French bread pizzas.

Thanks all the same, but I can get those a lot cheaper at the Kay-Roe-Shay.

And what the piss is up with that "prize" list? It's extortion, pure and simple. I mean, the more your kid sells the better the prize he/she gets? What seven year old kid needs a tricked out CD player? Sheesh!

I actually watched Larry King Alive last night -- because I can't get enough of the Crocodile Hunter. I can't stand King, but I did like what Jeff Corwin had to say. Yeah, I think I'm more upset about this than Son; I just can't get over Irwin dying so young.

Many thanks to the little bastard who called my house at 10:10 last night with a wrong number. You little pimple-arsed brat, you scared the hell out of me!

My kids had to sell wrapping paper in grade school and magazines subscriptions in middle school. I use to order paper but I stopped ordering magazines after the first child's first year. Free school isn't so free anymore, is it! We also use to get hit with the party fund of $5-$10 a year. I use to complain until a co-worker told me that her school hit them up for $50.

I've been doing fundraisers all summer! With two kids in band and one of those a cheerleader as well, the fundraising started in July! However, for some of it, I make the girls do it because they are old enough to walk the neighborhood and sell to our neighbors....just like every other kid does around here. Our neighborhood is between three cities and supports 9 different school systems, (3 public and 6 private) so there's fundraising going on constantly!
