Murrrcat, some things will never change.


RB's (((((grandmother))))). That's just sad.


I had the strangest dreams during my nap. It was a mixed bag of concerts I went to. I was running around trying to stop ever so drunken gurrel friends from getting in mosh pits, while wearing china flats or flip flops. True story. I would gladly play share the combat boots to avoid broken toes. Anywho, in the true spirit of exhaustion and boredom, I woke up and started reading articles on mosh pits. I can't stop laughing.

^ what is that?

I also could not help but laugh at the tales of "concert violence". The mp was a voluntary place that moved in time with the music. You had people around the edge of the swirling pit. You got in only if you wanted to, and knew you might catch an elbow or ... It was for fun, not personal, and a place to release aggression. Apparently people now take off running across a room, and head butt random strangers.

Not that any of this is important, just annoying (to me).

I bought this book hoping to cook many dishes with my kids. But most of the dishes were kind of odd and were things most kids would never eat. Then I read that the author, who is British, lives in Australia. She is a photographer not really even a chef. There you have it.The foods are not as commonly eaten here.
Those Brits and Aussies with their weird foreign food that no American child would ever eat!

OMG it gets better.

Sue - with respect, I'm not sure what made you think that this book was aimed at children specifically. It's clearly marketed as a general cookbook, though having said that, my children (aged 1 and 3) have both tried several of the recipes that I've cooked from this book, and they have loved them all. My 3 year old has even helped me cook a few things himself, including the chilli burgers, the friands and the meringues, which are all very easy to prepare and cook.

I live in Australia like the author, but I am not sure what you mean by some of the dishes being 'odd' either. I would have thought many of the recipes (barbecued meats, burgers, roast chicken and pork, macaroni bake, pizza etc.) would be eaten regularly by American families (I'm assuming you're from the States?), and those that might not be so familiar still feature ingredients that should not be that hard to come by wherever you're from. I think it's a shame you didn't at least try some of the recipes before sending the book back...

I'm so tired of not being able to wear nail polish at work! I'd kind of like to paint my nails today, even just clear coat or something, but I have to work tomorrow morning. BOOO!

But... I scored the BEST SHIFT EVER tomorrow morning. 7:30-1. You think I'm being sarcastic, but I'm not. 1:00? I've still got my whole day ahead of me!

I'm always on edge around my boss lately (post-temper tantrum) and it's really awk when it's just the two of us in the office.

Awk for me. He's kind of oblivious to life in general unless someone hands it to him, so I doubt he notices.

I need to start job hunting anyway. I finish my masters in August. But I was considering quitting my job (it's full time) during the summer so I can do an internship. Is that a good decision? I want one internship on my resume but it's hard when I work 9-5/ M-F.

Six months til freedom!

I cannot deal with this dude I work with.

I am not generally someone who looks down on nerds. Heck, I am a nerd. But OMG this kid makes me cringe. We just had a meeting and everything amusing, everyone else would chuckle a little bit at, and he would laugh, incredibly loudly, for a solid 10-20 seconds after everyone else had stopped.

But what really gets me is that lately, he has had to work in my vicinity in the lab, and he smells funny, talks to himself, is messy, and uses all of my supplies. So here I am, on one foot, carrying lab supplies up from the stock room and cleaning this dude's chemicals off of my lab bench and balances.

Aahhh.

My child has been an absolute whiney misery the past few days. He's not sick, no new teeth, not sure what the F is going on. Please tell me this is a phase and it will be over SOON. Going bonkers here.

I'm not crashing, silly. But if you're interested, I'll meet up with you afterward and you can have my Ulta coupon if you want it. I've got to stay away from that place.
I'm 98% sure that my class is from 2-4pm. So feel free to show up whenever.

Ulta is the devil
I'm not showing up for a class I'm not entitled to attend. Besides, if it's in Golden Gate, then it's near Marshall's, and I cannot go there for a while.

Ulta is the devil! That's why I'm trying to give away my coupon.

Did you see nynaeve's link on 3 year olds? It is a secret, but it applies here, too.

46 Reasons My Three Year Old Might be Freaking Out

Sometimes, we just don't know what the hell is wrong with them. It will pass.

I know it is cold out, but can you take a super short walk or just get outside for a few minutes, even if he is fussing in your arms? I wasn't very good at doing this, but even if it didn't make a kid feel better, the fresh air did me a world of good.

I think I may potentially possibly be starting to have hot flashes.

Maybe.

(Yay! No more freezing all the effing time!)

Lol, yes, I posted the same link the day before. . I have a feeling his hair is heavy. Sigh. I'm just needing a break. He's in his crib, playing and talking to himself. He should be napping, but I just don't have it in me to rock him or sh him at the moment. (I tried for a good twenty minutes to no avail.)

I missed you posting it, LA. "His hair is heavy."

If he is in his crib, I hope you can step outside for a minute. Good luck. And take off when your husband comes home.

I have to say I love y'all so much! Every single emotion has been wrung out of me today with this thread. I even snorted!

How is it possible my underwear can be heading south and the same damned time my pants are heading north? It's the same kind of weird magic that makes your sheet goes to the right and the blanket go to the left.

We celebrated our first date 12th anniversary last night. We tried to go back to the little independently owned coffee shop where we had out first date. It was gone. Some stupid hospital torn it down and built a clinic. We still loved all over each other at another coffee shop. Take that corporate america!

I took a shower while he was in there, but he's back to freaking out at nothing again. Tried to pick him up, freak out. Tried to put him down to see if he needed a diaper change, freak out. Oyyyy.

I posted it on Facebook. I don't know if we're friends on there, are we? (sorry if we are. I'm clearly losing my mind.)
