Just as well. I have too much stuff already, anyway (except for the stuff I don't want to buy anyway, you know?).

I do know I have been a shopping fool lately. A fool.

Some things are pricey. But, for me, the prices are reasonable considering that the clothes fit. I'm a 14 right now, and the shelf selection at stores often sucks.

But, if anyone decides to make a first purchase, I think you can get a discount if you say you were referred. The also send occasional email coupons and have some Tuesday specials.

SCG, I hate when people treat me like I'm 15 too. I'm not even small, I'm taller than average, I have ginormous breasts so I don't know why people assume I'm 15-16. (Not that there aren't tall 15-16 yr olds) The other day at work, I was talking with these women and I said "I don't even know what to do when I graduate, I just wanna be done!" and then this one chick goes "Oh that's right, you're graduating high school."


AND SHE KNOWS ME, I TALK TO HER ALL THE TIME. I think she tries to be rude.


Then my parents swear I've died if I don't respond to their text messages after 20 minutes. CHILL OUT. Oh they will be like "please be careful", if I go somewhere at night, but they never say that to my brothers.

Oh my word, y'all. I am so not a city girl.

We drove into San Fran today to meet someone and while sitting in the car (parked on the street at a parking meter) waiting on them to show these sketchy people sat down right behind the car and a few minutes later the pot smoke came wafting in. I hate skunk stink and I especially hate skunk stink when I'm sitting in a car with the sun beaming directly on me and now I've gotta roll the windows up and sit in a fvking oven because you're an idiot who can't smoke your isht at home.

That coupled with the weird creepy dude that gave Mr. Spring the stare down as he walked by and yelled obscenities was enough to give me stress for the next little while. So glad to be HOME.

Danae is so darn adorable. She's been experimenting with TuxPaint (it's a Linux program) after watching a bunch of videos of people using Photoshop on YouTube. Considering she has to use the tiny touchpad on her netbook, she's come up with some really neat stuff! I love that creative side that she has (she gets it from her daddy; I can't draw for beans!).

In other news, Davin laid next to me on the couch a few minutes ago and fell asleep. I can't bear to move him to his bed. He's so snuggly and warm!

^Your posts about your kids are unbearably adorable. I want to snuggle them, so I don't know how you manage to restrain yourself.

((Anna)). Who knows he thought being a complete dick was no big deal?

Oh wait. Now that I put it that way, makes total sense.

You are all corrupting me over here!!

My cat stabbed my hubby in the temple this morning with her claws... The screaming made me think he got stabbed in the eye. Took 5 mins to detach her.

Her claws are now trimmed.

To be fair to him, she does weigh a billion pounds and was falling off the bed while still attached to his skull so I can understand the screaming in pain thing.

GRRRR!

I'm short and mostly flat-chested, but I'm pretty sure I still don't look or act like a 15 year-old, so I really don't understand why people seem to think that I am one! I've gotten the high school comment so many times. As in "So, what year are you in?" "Oh, I'm a junior." "In high school, right?!"

Over the summer, I took my little brother to the hospital to get some x-rays done, and since he's underage, he needed to have an adult with him. When I went up to the window to tell the nurse we were there, she said "Oh, honey! You don't look a day over 15, I thought he might have been the adult for a second!"

ZOMG. STOP.

Oh, or my personal favorite conversation:

Them: So, when will you be graduating?
Me; 2014
Them: Oh, that's exciting. Do you know where you want to go to college yet?

I have a really chunky cat too. I was sitting in bed the other day folding laundry and she scaled the side(too high for her to jump!). She caught my ankle with her nail, I screamed and took off

She spent the rest of the day with her head buried in a pillow in the spare room

Oh mah WERD!

I was in the shower and hear this loud "BOOM!" and it scared the crap outta me. Someone in the apartments around the corner is trying to use their gun to settle an argument with their neighbor.

Mr. Spring's new hobby is listening to the police scanner, but at least we know what the hell is going on.

Walking into a thread and not understanding what exactly is being argued and why.

I didn't watch the Oscars but I saw some tiny snippet of a song about actresses' boobs as sung by host Seth MacFarlane. He needs to stop being named Seth. I think that's a sexy name and he and both Hollywood Seths I can think of just need to put it down and pick up something that sounds less incongruously cool. Unless it turns out that Seth Green acts like Oz in real life. I'll make allowances for Ozness.

My dad had an extended explosion of bile at me tonight, leading in with saying he's "sick of [me] being useless." **** that ****. He doesn't know the first thing about me and he's of no use to me either. The things he's invented about me are really screwing things up for me, though, because he makes up things I've done as well. Like apparently I've jumped to erroneous conclusions based on reading medical stuff on the internet? Despite that I avoid making conclusions about medical stuff and instead just compile lists of things to bring up to doctors. I assume this has to do with his random insistence that I distrust doctors because...reasons. Proven by...stuff.

He's absolutely going to think that somehow his "wake up call" (WTF you have no damn sense I'm not asleep you moron and stop saying "what you're doing" because depression isn't something people DO as an affront to their dumbass fathers), AKA unwitting attempt to drive me off a cliff, somehow caused me to get better once I've fully recovered and gotten the **** out of his house. He and my mother started in on trying to get me to tell them a day I'd talk to someone about getting on medications. Yeah, no, you don't get to decide my recovery methods. You are not doctors and I will not report to you like a child because that is not what I am. Being your child does not make me a child. And I am so much better than I am before. If you don't like the speed of my progress, either tell me to leave or just ****ing deal with it, because I don't heal on your schedule. Or mine, or anyone's.

My behavior. My BEHAVIOR? Apparently despite being something that they feel they can demand I get on pills for regardless of what I want, depression is not a disease but a choice made by lazy, worthless burdens because they hate their parents. Wow. I am not sitting back and enjoying a vacation in ****ing purgatory, you *******s. Also, holy transference, Batman. My dad brings up the topic yet again to say that part of "what I have" makes me keep bringing up subjects once they're closed. Which is totally how the topic came up again. Don't let my silence fool you. Then he says in a patronizing tone to remember recently when they both "had to" tell me to "let it go." Yep, I sure do - I misheard what Mom was asking, she got mad at me and I just stood there and stammered out apologies and when I asked her to confirm her initial request they both said "let it go" repeatedly, barely leaving room in between for my replies of "Okay...Okay...Okay!" as I backed out of the room.

I am too busy clawing my way out of this pit to deal with you two and your illusions about how mental health works. It's like if I broke my leg and you kept trying to make it heal faster by stabbing it. You. Are. Not. Helping. You morons. I don't have the energy to pretend you're all wise and ****. Especially you, Dad. There is FAR more wrong with your head than there ever could be with mine. I'm serious. I wish something could be done about your pathologically short fuse.

When I was sitting in the kitchen instead of in the living room with them, he said it was because I wanted to be far away from them. (Real mature.) Yeah, jump straight to "us," Dad. In your dreams. Mom is far more mature and level-headed, plus she actually has to get wound up to go off. I'm not wary of sitting near her.
