You're so sweet, spring. I feel kinda sad you're moving so far away since the odds of meeting you are so much slimmer. But maybe you'll meet Minxy, and CurliLocks, and OBB! And then you could post pics!

I'm thinking this is sig-worthy:

You know, I became frightened that Meyer was turning me into a prude, since I'd never been so disgusted by sex until I started reading her books. But you know what? Sex isn't disgusting. Stephenie Meyer describing Edward and Bella having sex is disgusting.

Saria, I know what you mean...I kinda felt that way too. The upside is with DH's promotion there are WAY less choices of where we'll go due to the position and I know two of those spots are here in CT. So, maybe we'll get to move back one day!

I'm definitely excited that I may get to meet some curlies (and a baldie) in CA!!

I am SO ready to move.

Saria, does he slur his words a lot? Speak very quickly? Spatter his speech with long pauses wherein all he says is "eh..............."? It helps so much to watch the mouth as a French person speaks. I hope it gets easier in person.

Don't forget to purse your lips when you reply. He should start nodding in understanding once he sees you making the French-talking face. Besides, you know all his terms from your training. Give yourself that moment in your mind to put a picture to his words.

I always seem slow-witted with native French speakers because my father spoke more slowly, and because I spend time imagining their words as pictures in my mind (at least for a while).

I could understand some people clearly but w/others I was always...duh..

Who? I need some good gossip!

-----------------------------------------------------

We got some good news on the grandma front. There aren't any other tumors showing up on the full body scan. Now the doctor is talking brain surgery to get out the big tumor, but better to have one tumor than many.

-------------------------------------------------------

Saria, I take exception to your My Little Pony hatred! Avatar is more awesome, obviously, but the new My Little Pony series is quite hilarious. The older versions were lame, but this new one cracks me up. I know your overall point was more about the fact that it's dumb that some morons think girls can't like an action/adventure series and that boys can't enjoy watching a show with a female lead, but I had to defend those zany ponies.

The Queen of Gekkolandia. She's drunk with power. The rest of us have to live with her whims and demands, banishments and reinstatements. Why do you think I prefer working outside alone (I do have my dogs, though; she allows that)?

Spring, you should try to get unbanned. I hear there's a giant waterslide and unicorns! Hmmm, maybe I should drop any association with spring and ninja. I'm on shaky enough ground with the queen as is!
