Jenny teaches us all about various social networking sites including which to ignore and which to follow for humor purposes. She also tutors us on what we need to stop doing on the Facebook (I’m talking to you, mind-numbing status updates of one’s To Do List accomplishments).
We discuss the psychology behind wanting to connect with like-minded people and how important that is especially for moms who may feel isolated in their Bubble Guppy, Gerber-filled Huggies world of little people. We also talk about the psychology behind the narcissistic “present your best” phenomenon on social media.
Finally, we try (and ultimately fail) to solve the mystery that is the appeal of Kayne West, touch on why so many women have a hard time being funny, and we get a much needed spiritual pep talk from the Reverend Moroni about making the most of our short little blip of a life by modeling for our children to have fun, laugh at ourselves, and when we screw up – own it.
Oh and Erin threatens to get a tattoo of Katie’s mug on her leg…
