Kenzie I feel your pain. My uber Christian parents even threatened to take away privileges if they found out I was on the pill. Man the lengths I went through to hide it. Well my dad found it and all hell broke loose. I stopped taking it because he started periodically searching my stuff. 6 months later I was pregnant. Pretty sure when I told my dad I was pregnant he wished he had let me keep my immoral BC pills.

So here are a couple of pictures of my nephews. I love them so so much!!! It was great seeing them all weekend. It wasn't enough time!





I miss them.


I'm on the phone! Excuse the imperfections, my phone isn't as smart ad me.

Hee, Charlie seriously has the puffiest little cheeks ever. He looks like he's about to storm off in the cutest huff.

On the bus on my way back to Shelter Island. There's a young couple and listening to them talking, traveling together, I get hit with that wistful feeling and the reality that I'm alone and how nice it would be to not be. And then all I want is to listen to Chopin's "Tristesse" (Twelve Etudes, Opus No. 10, No. 3) and Nana Caymmi's Não Se Esqueça de Mim because I'm emo like that. But I can't even do that because I left my earphones at home. Sigh.

No dice on the phone. They came on here and god knows what else, but I reported it. I sent text message of reward and trying to convince them to return it but no such luck. I had to get a new phone. Ugh.

Minxy that totally blows. I'm sorry you lost it. People sure do suck sometimes.

It's quite an ******* thing to do to not return it when you send them text message pleas. I hope they get what's coming to them!

That sucks minxy, if you have a smart phone you should invest in an app that wipes all your data remotely when you lose it. Don't know the name but I think everyone should have it.

I mean, I was at a family park!!! People had toddlers there! Can you imagine! I hope they get it back. I had some AWESOME pictures and video of my nephews! I cried I was so upset about it.

And I hate the idea of people looking though my phone. I wish I had subscribed to 'find my iphone' that is advertised on the MobileMe (which I let lapse in march so I couldn't wipe my phone remotely ) so that I could get the address of where my phone was.

But it worked out as best as it could in the end.

I hope they enjoy knowing my nephews are cuter than their children and nephews! (I am THAT childish. Yes.)

Saria, I understand your wistfulness.

So, don't read the following unless you want to be disabused of that "What If?" feeling:








Once, I was feeling really forlorn. It was late winter, my father had come to help me move from Cleveland back to Chicago, and I didn't know what I'd face when I got there. I didn't have a job waiting, I'd be staying with a friend, and there wasn't much in my bank account. My dog had stayed behind with my brother, and I was very sad about the prospect of weeks without him (dog, of course; not brother). Anyway, we had pulled into a rest stop someplace en route, where my father could get something to drink. I stayed in the car, playing with my pet turtle (Eleanora --- my brother tended to lose track of her, so I didn't dare leave her with him, whereas he really liked Shadow, my dog). It was snowing, and I was very lonely. I hated the coat I was wearing, too.

Then, a dark green Range Rover pulled into a parking place in front of me. Within it was a young couple, looking like they had it all: attractive, well-dressed, in a nice new car, and probably launched in their lives (unlike me, an adult traveling with her father and pet turtle). The man turned to the woman and spoke. Her reaction riveted my attention: she flung herself forward and back in the seat, her face twisted with frustration. She had moved so suddenly and with such force her hair became disarrayed. The man crashed his forehead into the steering wheel, and began wildly, blindly gesturing with his hands. The woman wiped at her eyes, while her lips formed a sneer. Every other moment, the windshield wipers of their expensive car moved rhythmically back and forth, back and forth.

"Huh," I remember thinking. "Maybe good old Dad's not so bad after all." And I kind of cheered up, there by myself in the front seat of his car, my turtle within my coat and against my chest for warmth (hers).

So........ime, sometimes being a couple is friggin' great. Aaaaaaand sometimes, it's not.

Ninja, I love the way you tell a story.

Good story, ninja. I liked the pointing out that it was your dog and not your brother you'd miss.

Egregious: "5 bucks for a walkup soda is rape. I know it,you know it, there's no justification."
Umm, no, dude.

Hey, I love my brother, but my dog never hit the automatic door locks, then said "Indulge me," when I protested.
----------------
Thanks, springy. I can't stop thinking about Calvin.
------------------------------------------------
Okay, I hate, really and truly hate, hatehatehate when men misuse the word "rape" in that way. (I suppose women could do it, too, yet somehow, we rarely if ever --- no, never, do.)

I can't stop thinking about him either. This day has left me exhausted mentally and physically. I hope for an improved day tomorrow.
