At what point does a couple go from "normal family" to "crazy breeders"? To me, that line is 5 children. Four is okay, but on the upper end. Five takes you to crazy breeder territory in my mind.

What happened to Stephanie Seymour in the video for November Rain? How did she die?? I've read that the mirror in the coffin indicates that she killed herself by gunshot. But that remains an unanswered question to me. She seemed happy. Why would she commit suicide?

LOL, to me it's not crazy at any number as long as the family can handle it emotionally, financially etc. and are having the kids because they really want them. One of my closest friends just had her fifth - kids are spread out with the oldest being 10 and it seems to be working well for them so far. I agree with you that for most people, four does start to raise eyebrows and five definitely does.

I I hesitated posting that because obviously every family has to make their own decisions on their family planning, and they have the right to choose what's right for them. I don't want to suggest otherwise. I wrote that in response to a friend I grew up with who has just announced her 5th pregnancy, and that's what raised my eyebrows. They are very fundamental Christians and I guess I just have negative connotation to fundamental evangelical Christians having lots of babies, perhaps unjustified. Their oldest child is I think 6 or 7. Also, both my husband and I grew up in households with 3 children, so I'm sure that affects my perceptions on what's a "large family."

Haha! One of my Aunts, moms sister, has 12 kids. Thats effing insane. They are all fully grown now, but her husband/the father died in 1982. He didn't believe in birth control and she came from a family of 8 kids. I was young but I remember thinking, what is she going to do? They struggled, very hard, to make end meet when he was alive.

My grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles helped as much as they could.

I do wonder if she ever second guesses herself. Over the years her kids have wrecked or ran several of her cars into the ground, and accidentally burnt her house down. Now they all have children and they've wrecked or ruined my aunts cars, and other belongings too.

I would lose my mind.

^ And don't get me wrong. I love all of them, dearly. They are favorite cousins on my moms side, especially the ones closest to my age, and I have 29 others. Lol. Not all are or were incredibly wild either. There is just no possible way to keep up with 12 kids by yourself.

Woohoo! I put off laundry and went shopping. A department store in my area is moving and having a big sale. I bought 2 really nice maxi dresses, a short dress, a peasant top, 2 pairs of nice shoes, and 2 bottles of perfume for $150. Thank you brothers, and Aunt for the early birthday $$$.

Gripes for the day:

I love you.

But I dont trust you.

I dont trust you either.

Im tired of being unhappy.

Im sick of constantly wondering if you are lying or not.

I want you, but you are emotionally exhausting.

I think its wrong to say I dont like you. But I dont like you.

And Im tired of seeing Kiera Knightley poke her duck lips out (random...yeah, I know)

I wish I had stocked up on healthier food while in Japan. Like 1/2 cup of kimchi is only 30 calories (and one doesn't really eat more than 1 cup or so of kimchi). Even sushi is low calorie. Gawd, why didn't I eat healthier in Japan!!!!

I find it interesting how the Japanese have taken kimchi into their cuisine to the point that you list it among Japanese foods.

They haven't, it is however in pretty much eery single supermarket, no matter how rural. I just listed it because I have been craving kimchi all week (and going over into 2 weeks). I always joked that if I am pregnant I have to live in Japan for a few months to satisfy the cravings I'll have. I would like to think I'm not preggers and I;m already having these terrible cravings. Help me!

It makes its way into Japanese restaurant menus pretty often here, too, so I was thinking of that as well. I'd say to make it, but aside from getting the ingredients, you have to give it time to ferment.
You could make spicy pickled cabbage pretty easily that might satisfy the craving, though.

I just googled this recipe. This craving must end!

Trudged through the mud for half an hour for a budoir shoot near a river. Totally worth it, the pics she posted this morning are AMAZING.

Seasoning a cast iron skillet stinks. Literally.

Mojo, pics or it didn't happen!



the skies opened and the rain poured down for about 90 minutes a couple of hours back while we ate dinner. we had leftovers of burgers, fish cakes, salad and portobello mushrooms. we're going to have some of the remaining key lime pie for dessert and coffee with kahlua.

it's clearing up, so we should be able to see the stars again tonight.

then it's back to "real life" tomorrow!

*sigh*

hey OBB, baby, 5,000 dong is less than 25 Canadian cents. if you want payment, you'll have to come collect in person!
