    Uh....oops? Also just realized it's the 9th. At least I think it is. All these night shifts in a row have me messes up.

    Poll: do you believe in ghosts?

    I've had several unexplained events but I don't know if I'd label them paranormal. My second year in college my roommates and I moved into a house off campus. The first week I woke up and saw a lady dressed in black with a black veil that mourners wore years ago. I didn't feel scared but incredibly sad. Talking to the elderly couple - not about ghosts though - but they said that a young couple had lived there and that a baby had died of SIDS. She also said the father was extremely abusive. My room was upstairs and every time I went up I felt like someone was staring at me with pure hatred. Several times I would feel like someone was lightly touching my hand and arm while sleeping. I never felt threatened in my room though. My one roommate didnt believe in anything she couldn't see, touch, etc. On the day we moved out she confessed to me she was glad to be leaving. She too had felt the hatred.

    Are you sick and tired of PETA, Pro-Animal rights??

    I saw an episode of Oprah where someone lost 10 pounds by going vegan for a week. I've considered it but what do you eat? I can't do beans, lettuce, or any roughage because of Crohn's. I did try soy milk and liked it but my stomach did not. As far as PETA, I don't pay any attention to them. In the words of Eleanor Roosevelt, no one can make you feel inferior without your consent Everyone has their cause. Now throwing blood on fur wearers seems like it borders on assault and destruction of private property - but I'm no lawyer. BTW, how do those people know if the fur is fake or real?

    Lol, I've given up on Alex. He was just too much man for me. I've been keeping the books outta my bed. Gotta make room for someone else.

    I'm baaack!

    Whew, it's been what, 2 years? A rundown: Hospitilzation for Crohn's and no tx currently works so I'm sans any meds and just sucking it up. I moved (again) to a much safer neighborhood. I've survived skin cancer - yes, at 31. Thanks to all those years fake baking. Almost done with my degree in political science. :yeah: Undecided on law school. Changed jobs and now working at a major teaching hospital. Took up playing the violin again. And the biggie: my bestest best friend died in February. Hit by a semi on an icy road. Never knew what people meant when they said it hurts. It still hurts and it's an all consuming pain. :crying2: I finally DO get that life can change in a moment and to hug your loved ones a little longer. Finally decided at the ripe age of 31 that I want to be a stay at home mom to 4 or 5 kids, drive a min-van and cook supper for my husband every night. First I need a husband. Sooo...what have you all been up to?

    Can you believe it was below freezing earlier this week and now it's 76 out already? It's only noon!! It's supposed to be in the 80's this weekend. Joe, good luck with the job hunt. You will find something. I'm baby-sitting my nieces tonight. My db and sil's 6th wedding anniversary was the 21st. They're going out of town for the night. They deserve it. They need some alone time with no kids, diapers, bath time, etc. My bed was supposed to be delivered today at 11:30 but they called and said it would be between 1:30-5:30. Ugh! I need to get home to my adorable nieces. I am excited about the bed. I have a queen now but bought a king. Bought a white waffle comforter and am going to paint the walls grey with a darker grey accent wall when I have a free weekend. And I finally found the glass lamps I was looking for on clearance. Sometimes life does go my way. I got my grandma's antique cherry table too that will go in front of my bedroom window. I always admired that table. I used to run my fingers across it when I was a kid. It's soooo shiny. I'm going to miss doing that at her place though. It's going to be hard for my mom to look at her house and know that she's gone. They mentioned moving to town since she's gone, but my nieces love to run around their 14 acres. That is nice because we don't have to worry about cars as we live on a dead end road with just 2 neighbors. Well, just one now. Emma thinks grandma is on vacation in heaven. She thinks she's coming back. No matter how many times we tell her that she's dead she still asks when she's coming back and if grandma is bringing her anything. :( Hope you have a great Friday!!
  12. http://www.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/meast/12/23/saudi.arabia.child.marriage/index.html How big of him to wait for puberty. What if she hits puberty at 12? Who is going to make sure this predator doesn't try something before then? Maybe he already has. Ok, this child can get married - legally - but can't legally file for divorce because she's too young? That's the most southern fried lame brained thing I've ever heard. I work with a nurse who lived in Saudi while her husband was a contractor. She says that women there don't even rate above dogs. They're not allowed to drive, be seen walking in front of a man, be seen in public without a male escort, etc. This girl should be running around with friends, going to school, etc. NOT making sure her husband is satisfied. The poor, poor girl. Shame on her father for essentially selling her.

    Flying in a F/A-18

    If I ever have the money I'm going to Russia to ride in the MiG's. The last time I checked it was $30,000. Worth every grand.
