Through NO FAULT of my own!

Some of you may or may not remember, but not too long ago my husband took a test. A test that would prove to the world the kind of man he is! A test that PROVED what I had been telling him for YEARS! Scoring one of the highest I have seen to date with 57.98817% as the score, I present The Geek Test!

I finally got up the guts to take it, but only after noticing that even Tammi was questioning her level of "geekdom". I have always been pretty darn sure I'm a geek, but I guess seeing it in the form of a percentage puts more weight to it. So without further adieu, here is my score:

I blame this on Contagion. I was NOT a geek in the beginning, although admittedly I had "geekish tendencies". Apparently all these years of Marriage have caused a side affect that no one could have suspected, or prepared for! I have become a GEEK THROUGH OSMOSIS!!

I thought that taking the second test might even something out.

I am nerdier than 64% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

Oh NO!!! I scored higher on this than he did!!! ****GAH!!!****

It is COMPLETELY OBVIOUS to me what needs to be done.....more details to follow!

Disney on Ice

Thursday I took Clone to see Disney on Ice. He's almost 4 years old, and I figured he was at the right age to watch and enjoy the show. I didn't realize how much *I* would enjoy it as well!

We arrive at the show and head straight for the souvenir booth. I knew it would not be possible to get through this without purchasing something that lights up. He found what he wanted, we purchased it (as well as a pair of Flotsam and Jetsam binoculars) and headed to our seats. I hadn't realized, but our seats were in the second row, right in front of the ice! We were going to be up close and personal with the skaters!

When the show began, Clone was very happy and excited. He sat and watched the whole show with very little complaining. He would clap and laugh, point out things to me, and smiled a lot. I loved watching him enjoy himself, and although that was my favorite part of the whole show, there was a close second. I never realized (or maybe it was because I'd never been so close to the ice) just how tight of a backside the male skaters have!

You could bounce a quarter for MILES off those butt cheeks! Tight pants and rock hard buns....yeah...Disney on Ice is worth every penny!

Well alrighty then

I love babies. I enjoy baby showers. I have always given more than I probably should as a gift to the expecting Mother.

Why is it that I have no desire to attend the baby shower that I was LITERALLY begged to go to? Perhaps it's because it's for a person whom I've never met. Maybe it's because this person is pregnant for the third time. It might even be that she is only 22 years old.

After much thought, I have come to the conclusion that it's all of the above, and then some. I don't want to go, and I don't want to give a gift because the entire situation has an unpleasant smell. We are talking about someone who already has a 6 year old by one man, a 3 year old by another, and is now pregnant with her 3rd child by a third man.

I am trying NOT to judge...I understand that sometimes things happen, and you have to make the best of it, but I can't believe that "this time" it's true love. I think that she is going to take everything she can get and give nothing back.

I'll let you all know how this pans out.

What an interesting afternoon. The expecting Mother arrived with her mother (who looked and ACTED like Rosanne Barr) and aunt. There were approximately 35 people there (most from both sides of the Father's family) and the three of them spoke to no one but each other unless forced to.

Everyone filled out an envelope with their name and address on it so the Mom-To-Be would only have to write out the Thank You cards and put them in the envelope. When she was given the cards and envelopes, she stated "Oh! Gee....thanks...." and promptly set them aside.

She gave no "Thanks" to the group as a whole. She gave no "Thanks" to the person who hosted the shower. There was complaining about the food choices. There was irritation because more than one container of baby lotion was received. There were comments made that were inappropriate about the baby's father in front of his mother, and in general the entire shower had a sense of segregation.

Maybe I'm being too harsh and critical, and I would welcome anyone who has another opinion of the situation. Perhaps another view will help me to understand....make me see things differently...but I doubt it!
