Well if it makes you feel better Tofulish, when I was home visiting and wearing a flowing dress, my aunt grabbed my stomach and asked if I was pregnant yet. I've always been overweight but no one ever has said anything to me thinking I'm pregnant.

And even though I didn't like Borders very much, we mostly have Borders around here and the library funding is cut so much that there really isn't any good place for evening studying. Even my local community college closes the library early and it is closed completely on Sunday.

And then in the store today, two ladies at the grocery asked when I was due, and when I said November, did a whole disbelief routine - Oh wow I would have thought next month, I guess he's going to be a big one, Oh I know are you having twins?

Seriously, if you want to ask my due date and I tell you, the right response is Oh wow, congratulations!

I'm 4'11. I'm going to get bigger because there is nowhere else for this baby to go but out.


Seriously, you start growing something cool in your uterus and suddenly everybody's got some unsolicited comment on it. Last time around, I had a run in with a lady who argued that I must be wrong about my dates because she wasn't as big at term as I was at 7 months. Thanks lady.

Linanil, that is just horrible and beyond rude. Seriously, who does that? You look supercute and not pregnant at all.

Thanks C&S! Dear peanut gallery STFU.

So true. I've had a random person I don't know say I looked like I was about to pop at 25 weeks (one of my most hated pregnancy-related expressions no matter how far along I am) and some coworkers recently say I don't look big enough to be 28 weeks. Go figure. I'm no fan of unsolicited remarks like this, but I count myself lucky that no strangers have been rude enough to touch my belly yet. I'm generally pretty easygoing, but that is the kind of thing that would set me off and probably get me arrested.

And linanil, I can't imagine someone being so rude.

I have to drive 1800 miles (in my well-running, paid-for car!) with 4 (healthy, reasonably happy (until the drive)!) cats. I am tired just thinking about it. I am considering getting them bandanas to tie on little sticks and having them hitchhike.

You should teach them to drive!

That might be safer than hitchhiking, but they lack a team attitude so I don't see them coordinating the gas pedal and the steering wheel. It would be awesome, though. Then I could just sleep on the drive

I think people are just fascinated by pregnant ladies and the miracle of birth and all that. I don't think most people mean to be crassholes. It's a weird thing though, it's as if pregnancy creates some kind of acceptable bridge between the private and public. That was a major dick move, though, linanil. Man!

My first world problem: my cats always want to sit on my laptop when I'm trying to use it. I have to hide my computer use from the cats.

This is such an amazing sentence. It seems like just two completely unconnected thoughts about yourself but I’m assuming the latter was caused by the former. So funny. as a sentence! Not in reality. It's terrible; hope you’re ok.

Seriously that is a true fact! You are tiny! Where else is fetus going to grow, your ears???
Ughh I’m so sorry that people are being such dicks to you. What happened to the good old days when someone would be ‘in the family way’ and it was something that just wasn’t discussed in polite society? Why do people think it’s ok to say things like that to you? I think for the next few months I need to be your bodyguard. Because whenever people say unwarranted things like that to you, I will calmly explain to them that they are nosy bisques who should be ashamed that they were apparently behind the door when god passed out the manners and stop judging others. And then you can calmly explain to all the strangers who comment on my ‘pregnancy’ when the forking wind blows my dress against my belly that you are going to kick them in the privates when you finish this sentence.

I was watching "The Next Food Network Star" earlier and right at the point of elimination, the end of a "Chopped" episode came on, as if some projectionist at the helm put the wrong reel in to end the wrong show (reels--projectionist--what does she speak of now, the silent era?). Now I have NO IDEA who's not going to be the Next Food Network Star. Is so-ands-so gone now? What's her face? That flower woman? I MAY NEVER KNOW now thanks to your blunder, Food Network.

My $2 Rolling Stone subscription just sent me an issue I've already read. And I got 2 issues of Smithsonian on the same day and can't decide which articles to read first. Not to mention the 3 issues of Backpacker I haven't finished yet. And this isn't counting the Mother Jones, Popular Mechanics, and Discovery subscriptions that got backed up because of a change of address. (if you have Recyclebank, you can use 100 points to get up to 4 magazine subscriptions for $2 ea, btw)

I have more periodicals than I can handle.

Woe.

I've been sitting bored and unoccupied in a cushy office all day because my supervisor doesn't have time for me.

I have so much in my pantry (like a bomb shelter's worth of dried beans and grains...and speculoos) and I am moving in a week. Guess I'm bringing a box of food instead of emptying my pantry.

I made the conscious decision to stay up late to watch another episode of Dexter, which would have cut my sleep for the night down to 6 hours... then I woke up around 3:30 and couldn't get back to sleep, so I actually only slept about 5. In my warm comfortable bed, in my safe and spacious and well-maintained house.
