I’m always so impressed with women who can embrace aging. When I read a blog about someone celebrating turning 40, instead of thinking, Good for them, I always think, That’s me in seven years. Then I flip out.
SEVEN MORE YEARS UNTIL I’M MOTHERFUCKING FORTY.
I remember when I turned twenty and thought it was bad that in twenty years I’d be forty. And that feels like it was two years ago. When did I get so old?
Your Favorite of the Six Movies So Far (I’m changing this one to the eight movies)?
This is such a hard one, but I think I’m going to have to go with The Half Blood Prince. I don’t really have a great explanation for it. I just think it was really well done.
Your Favorite of the Seven Books?
That’s a hard one, but I’d have to say The Order of the Phoenix. It was the first book I read and it got me hooked. After I finished it (in a day and a half), I went out and bought the rest (1-4). I burnt through them in no time and then waited impatiently for the next one to come out.
I have 30 days until my due date… This is thirty days long. What are the chances I can do it?
no where really. just growing people.
not always. but most of the time. like the time i let them out in the backyard yesterday and they discovered that the gate was open. so, being jerks, they decided they better go and see what was going on in the neighbourhood.
i hadn’t heard any noise from them in a while so i looked out the window to check on them. i couldn’t see them in the yard. weird. then i heard pepper barking. but it sounded far away. like it was in the front of the house. weird. so i went and looked out the front window. there are both my dogs in the middle of the street and the teenage goth from across the street is trying to wrangle them up to the house (wearing a purple tutu and black tights, no less). she had daisy by the collar and pepper was following them at a safe distance, screaming at the girl. i imagine he was sayinG: “DONT YOU TOUCH HER!!! YOU LET GO OF HER RIGHT NOW!!! LEAVE DAISY ALONE!!! STRANGER STRANGER STRANGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
i ran to the front door an opened it, exclaiming, “WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING??? GET INSIDE RIGHT NOW!!!” they both ran in and looked at me like, “oh, hi mommy. what’s up?”
i thanked the girl profusely. she replied with a sullen “no prob” as she slouched back across the street to take her dog for a walk. what a hero.
