I want to throw my laptop out in the backyard then shoot it multiple times.

I'm trying really hard to resist the urge of wanting a new one that actually works. Lard help me.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

People do that?!?
Oh yeah.

It's also becoming an epidemic on Facebook. One woman posts an updated picture each time she has an ultrasound. And my FB friends seem to love it, so it stays at the top of my news feed.

Not to mention people posting pictures of themselves with their positive pregnancy test to announce that they're pregnant. That seems to be an increasingly popular thing to do...

ETA: Oops! Had a double negative in there... Hope the last part makes more sense, now!

That's interesting. I just assume that I and my husband (maybe) are the only ones interested in my ultrasound pics. I definitely agree about posing with your pee stick. Those things go in the trash as soon as I get an answer!

The pee stick thing is gross. I did post one ultrasound pic on Facebook as a way of announcing my pregnancy, though. I figured anyone who didn't care could just ignore it, but almost all of my FB friends are people I know IRL. I never showed my pics to strangers. That's just weird.

I have friends who posted the positive pee stick pic. I just thought "Ew you peed on that! No one wants to see that!".

My mother upon my telling her it was an apple cake:
"Oh, it's one of those kind of sour cakes."
(Everything with any hint of tartness is sour to my mother; she says she can't eat pretty much any fruit due to the acid.)
"If the apples are sour?"
"Well, of course, since you don't like sweet ones." (Because I like all my fruit to have a balance of sweet and tart, sigh.)

Seriously, I can never drink my mother's lemonade or any juice she makes. I also can't eat Dominican-style oatmeal anymore, and my mother finds my oatmeal to be "sin azúcar".

Phone sex!

Okay, I am way too excited about that.

^ Been there, done that (two years of long distance). Helps make the dirty talk come easily and without embarrassment.

Amaretto is yummy!

On a related note, oops. I need to whip up an imaginary grant letter about something to someone and make it look legit to show off my skills to a grant writer who might want an assistant on a project of indeterminate size (unpaid, but could lead to something else, or at least make a good entry on a resume). I probably should not be buzzed when I attempt to do that. Argh, I have no idea what to write it about in the first place! This is the second day after the evening when my contact said to send writing samples, and since my most recent writing has all been academic or comedic and I've been told to nix the comedy with the apparently humorless woman who may need an assistant, which means I can't show two ends of a spectrum of formality, I feel I can't send other stuff without showing her I can do what she specifically needs. BLARG.

Good news, though: I've already got the other brief unpaid project that's come my way past the proving-I-can-do-it stage, so at least I'm not failing everything.

@LadyV69, try lactaid tablets. They have chewables. I am lactose intolerant as well. I don't leave home without them. There is even lactaid milk and ice cream.

Seriously, I'm dying from cute overload right now.

DH is a rockstar and drew some hissing cat silhouettes for me to cut out and they are freakin' AWESOME in the front window. I went outside to see how they look and squealed they look so stinkin' cute!!

Next I glue the googly eyes on the bats I cut out to hang up tomorrow.

BOO!!
