Really have to wake up and get to work early tomorrow and I'm so worried I'm going to sleep through the alarm. I wish I had the ability to fall asleep and wake up whenever I wanted to!

Proof the birds are smarter than we are.

When we were saying goodnight to Molly, mom and I started having a heated discussion about taking her to the vet. My mom got upset that she felt I was suggesting she would do anything against Molly's best interests. This was basically in the middle of Molly's usual goodnight routine and she didn't appreciate it, so she sqwacked and did a "whaaaa Grrr whaa Whaaa whaa" kind of imitation of our argument and jumped herself in to the cage and hid in her sleeping fleece, grumbling at us.

That's probably also proof that she is feeling ok.

It's funny, as a nanny who frequently tries to figure out whether other women are nannies, I know that the way you do it is to ask, are you his/her mom? I feel like every nanny knows that's how you ask so that you can find other nannies to hang out with.

So crazy 'fulish! I mean, to me, Leela looks so much like you it's insane. I've had the total opposite happen to me, though. When we adopted my (mixed race) little sister when I was 16, I spent a LOT of time taking care of her. Whenever we were in public people constantly thought she was my daughter and I was a teenage mother. I got so many nasty looks and incredibly terrible comments from people, because apparently there is nothing worse in the world than the idea of a young white girl having a black man's baby.

I got all my grades in. I have worked SO HARD in the last week, dealt with SO MUCH shiitake, and I feel like a goddamn superhero now.

In past years, my school would arrange the schedule so that we always had a three day weekend or a vacation after the last day of the marking period (normally the second marking period ends the Friday that Thanksgiving break begins), and I am so very resentful of the fact that we didn't get that this year. I really need that extra time.

But I overcame! And my boyfriend was a saint, letting me work for tons of yesterday and then basically all of today, going to the kitchen to get me drinks and snacks, rubbing my shoulders...

And now I'm watching Glee and cuddling my cat and sipping wine and feeling SO GOOD. I'll be tired tomorrow, but it'll be worth it.

what is a pumpkin cutlet?


Oh, a direct translation from (Austrian) German, I guess. They're just broiled slices of pumpkin...

Joshua, even if you don't know them intimately that's still horrible.

I have the winter vomiting bug (norovirus). It is not pleasant, and also I might have accidentally infected people because at first I kind of thought it was a second day of a horrible hangover. Saturday I ate nothing and couldn't even keep water down, yesterday I managed 4 pieces of dry toast and some vegetable broth. Today I've had some brown rice and cauliflower as it occurs to me that I'm not altogether sure gluten doesn't disagree with my guts anyway so that might be causing bad things to continue out of my arse. Wish me luck!

I just went to see my grandmother, who is not well at the moment. She said, among other things, that she wishes she still had her gun under her bed so she could finish herself off. I then discovered that she had asked my mother to buy her some poison on the internet (because it's that easy) and once asked her doctor about ways to kill yourself. She was told that as she could walk, was well off, had lots of money and a fairly good life, she shouldn't kill herself and should enjoy herself more. I think she's entertaining the idea of suicide as a means to pass the time.

I kinda know what you mean. My mom is white and my dad is black, and I have a lot of my dad's features. No one ever thinks she's my mom, and it's kinda awkward when people are like, "Really?" Like I'm gonna say, "Nah, I was joking, I have no mother"


It is weird in that I've had the opposite reaction in growing up. My family is Mexican with some Native American and other South American sprinkled in. My mom has darker skin than most of her siblings and her parents who are quite pale. I look more like my aunts than my mother due to my biofather being white. Everyone is like 'oh you guys look so much alike' between my mom and me. I don't know what they see but I definitely resemble my aunts. Of course the people that say this generally aren't white though.

And Tofulish your daughter looks so much like you, I can't imagine someone thinking otherwise.

I joined a FreeCycle mailing list in my area. It is amusing for many reasons. I'm glad to see people get rid of stuff they don't need and go to people that could use them. The thing is though, it is just odd like 'offer: 1000 paper clips, must be gone today' (it really wasn't paper clips but was some other small, somewhat off the wall thing) and 'wanted: iPhone' not a cell phone but an iPhone. Considering someone ould easily ebay such a thing, I'm going with not likely.

I'm frustrated. My internet, which I bum, is going hella slow and fading in and out. I'm trying to find the darker version of Nina Simone's "Trouble in Mind" in which she talks about going to the railroad, but all I can find is the more upbeat version in which she talks about going to the river.

When I really think my roommate can't get any ruder or more inconsiderate, he manages to one-up himself.

His terrible boyfriend that we hate was here all weekend. He walked in on me doing some early prep-work for dinner yesterday, so I asked what their dinner plans were, to make sure they wouldn't show up and expect us to have enough food. We had two other friends coming over to eat later. He said they wanted to eat with us, asked what time, etc., and I made sure he knew that I was going to have to leave the house to go buy more food (which was fine, if they wanted to eat with us). So not long before it was time for them to be here, he texted me and said they were going to a movie, and they would be home when it was over. Friends came over, we ate, and I put all the food up. They get back here an hour after we've already eaten, get everything out of the fridge for dinner, and don't bother apologizing for being late, or even say thank you for cooking. Oh, and then they finish off the last piece of this vegan pecan pie that my mom made us. I'm surprised my head hasn't exploded yet.

Boundaries. You need to set them.

It sounds like a primary source of frustration is food, so perhaps you need to reconsider the arrangement where all three of you pay for and eat the food that you buy and cook, if you resent him eating the food that he has paid for without making any acknowledgement of your effort. I totally understand your feelings - cooking is time consuming and you make wonderful meals, and it is rude to not respect that. But in his eyes, its his food that he has paid for and you've agreed that everything in the fridge is fair game.

If she's experienced your projectile spunking, you're probably safe using the L word. Assuming that the L word is Liftoff...

I figured out today that since the kidlet was born, I have washed over 400 loads of nappies (averaging a load every 2 days, minus times traveling overseas when we've used disposables). Each wash is an average of 15 nappies, which equals over 6,000 nappy changes. I estimate over 5,500 of those changes were done by me.

That is all.

you sensitive people with your L words. i think if i could get away with it, i'd never say it again. it still makes me uncomfortable when my parents tell me they love me (they started doing this pretty recently, and i still don't expect it). my standard response is "yup" or some other hurried, murmured nonword of assent.
