Here’s what’s been buzzing around the iVillage community over the past few days:
— Ok, the 2008 elections may seem like a long way off, but that’s not slowing down the prospective candidates as they stump, debate and fundraise their way into next year. Of course that doesn’t stop the speculation and volatile opinions of the voters either, especially when it comes to Hillary Clinton. Would you vote for Hillary? Is she electable and does the fact that she’s a woman have anything to do with your opinion? [from the Feminism Today message board]
— Ahhh, the sounds of summer … but sonny321 isn’t soothed by the tones of the Good Humor truck, declaring, “I hate the ice cream man.” Yikes. She explains her rage: “My boys are under the misguided impression that I ought to give them money every day to buy treats from the ice cream man.” Any ideas for putting the kibosh on the summer treat squeeze? [from the Primal Scream message board]
— Recognize yourself? One mom writes, “Do other women feel like me? I’m so overwhelmed at the moment with my “to do” list that I find myself shutting down and getting so irritable.” I’d say that’s me pretty much everyday, so you’re not alone — who’s with me? [from the March 2005 Playgroup]
— eHarmony, the popular online dating site, is being sued for discriminating against gays. Is not offering a “women seeking women” option discrimination? Does the class-action lawsuit stand a chance against founder Neil Clark Warren and his Natalie Cole background music? There’s a huge clash of opinions on this story coming from all sides. [from the Hot Debates message board]
— Do you find you have a hard time letting let go? You’re not the only one — take this dilemma, for example: “My 23 year old boyfriend sleeps with a three foot long stuffed moose.” You know, I’m having trouble pinpointing the best part of this statement. Is it that the guy is 23? That he’s sleeping with a stuffed moose? Or that it’s a three foot long stuffed moose? Is now the wrong time to admit I’m very attached to my Care Bear? [from the Ask the Dating Doyenne message board]

Caryn: Listening to M. Ward, still downing my coffee and trying to dig out of my ever-expanding to-do list! (via Twitter / Caryn)
We all need advice now and then. Sometimes it appears in the form of persuasion, other times it is just plain bossy. We even like to peep in on the advice other people seek*.
It made me think about what … (via Gather: Articles by Julia Schrenkler)
My note: Huzzah for bossy musical persuasion! And crystal blue persuasion! (But not Crystal Light because I think that stuff is so gross!)
