Congrats on getting through one year!

Vista and 8

Congrats on your new laptop! That’s a great Christmas present. :)

Like you, I have Windows 8 installed on non-touchscreen PCs (my laptop and my desktop), and while I like the block/grid style of the new Start Menu (mostly), it isn’t really all that practical. I’m annoyed with how shutting down is like a five step process (start, hover to right to get user pic, sign out, wait for welcome screen, then select shut down from the bottom right menu), so I tweaked the Power Options (in Control Panel – or just search for “Power Options”) to make my laptop and desktop’s power buttons the shutdown buttons as well.

Seven inches later

I’m sorry, but I have to admit that when I read your blog title, my mind went straight into the gutter!

I cannot believe your hair was so long. WOW. The longest my hair has ever been is maybe halfway down my back? Currently it’s about two inches below my shoulders — I recently had about four inches hacked off. Last fall I had like three inches hacked off. Eek.

Anyway, I hear you on the trauma of going from long to short. While your hair is definitely still long (!), it’s nevertheless much shorter than what it was — so the tears are definitely justified. :)

Food for thought

I am so sorry that you have had to grow up in such an emotionally unhealthy environment. At 5’1” and 105 lbs you sound perfect to me. *hug*

After one comes two.

Aww! Happy Anniversary! <3

And then I lost my faith in the decency of humanity…

Your post made me nauseous. It’s the kind of thing that I didn’t want to read, but I *had* to read. Ugh. I can’t stomach animal abuse any more than I can stomach child abuse. That poor cat, that poor baby. I hope he/she was put out of his/her misery asap. It’s good that you stopped and that someone came to help.

I don’t get people sometimes, I really don’t…

Happy Mother’s Day

Those are too cute! I bet your mom loved them. Psst… the snail cupcake is my favorite!

Wisdomless – Part 1

Ugh, wisdom teeth. My husband was awake for the removal of all four of his, and apparently two of them shattered and the dentist had to really dig to get them out. I, on the other hand, was “lucky” enough to have three severely impacted wisdom teeth, so I was put out for the procedure. They had to cut into my gums and dig around to remove the three impacted wisdom teeth. I woke up groggy and out of it, and it wasn’t long before the pain meds wore off. My dentist was really nice, and fortunately also aware of my medication allergies. I got a script for Vicodin, yay! Oh, and some type of anti-bacterial mouthwash. And instructions not to brush my teeth for a few days, don’t eat anything but soft foods, etc.

Good luck with getting your other two wisdom teeth out. I hope it goes smoothly for you!

Pissed, based on principle

I would be pissed too. It sounds like she was implying that just because you’re a girl, you can’t navigate the city transit system or do other public things on your own because of the risk of getting assaulted. Surely your aunt realizes that most sexual assaults are committed by people that the victim knows, and not just random strangers on the bus or in the subway. *sigh*

Showing off

Can I come eat dinner at your house? I love soups! Clam chowder is something I’m occasionally in the mood for, and right now I am *definitely* in the mood for it!

Fight or flight… or freeze?

Dogs should be leashed when they’re in public. It doesn’t matter if they’re perfectly trained, smaller than a bowling bowl, toothless, whatever. Dogs should only be off their leashes if they’re in a fenced area or in their owner’s home. Period. I’m sorry that guy was a dick and took his sweet ass time pulling the dog away from you.

As for that mother… wow. That’s awful. The bus driver should have called CPS while he was at it. Seriously, picking up a child by the HAIR? That’s abusive. Poor little girl. :(

Hello, dorkdom

Congrats on getting textbooks at a decent price. I can’t believe how expensive they are! I remember going shopping with my husband for them and watching in amazement as he paid over $400 for a semester’s worth. Eesh!

Answers:
1. I begged Dan to play Guitar Hero with me. I also downloaded some of the soundtrack music from Little Big Planet.

2. Does a train count? If so, then 6 hours. I rode a commercial train (Amtrak) several times to visit my husband when he was away at college, He was 250 miles away – 4.5 hours or so by vehicle. And 6ish by train (all of the stops took time).

3. Chocolate candy: Hershey’s cookies & creme. Regular candy: Starburst

Squirrelisms

Aww, poor squirrels! That’s so sweet and sad at the same time.

Father’s Day?! Oh crap.

Yay for smutty romance novels. I’m currently recovering from spending several years ODing on them, but I’m tempted to get back into them. REALLY tempted, in fact. Wow, thanks for the sudden and quite random craving! 😉

This meme is definitely quite popular! I just did it myself a little bit ago, heh.

It’s a lot like very conditional love

My mother often puts down my husband because he likes to play video games. In her opinion, men who play video games are still little boys. Nevermind the fact that many of the men who play video games AS A HOBBY still hold full-time jobs, are excellent husbands and great fathers. As long as the gaming is a hobby, what’s the harm?

She always says that she would want a man/want me to have a man like my grandfather. But things now are a lot different than they were in the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s! Besides, my grandfather had his own time-consuming hobbies… reading astronomy magazines and tinkering with cameras. 😉

SEX! (Did I grab your attention?)

I don’t think I like that pull-out law. Like you said, there are no doubt going to be a lot of kids that are yanked out of sexual education classes and religion classes because their parents are close-minded. I’m a firm believer in exposing children to many different views and religions, and I wouldn’t pull my kid out of class just because a lesson or two on Buddhism or Judaism was going to be taught. And sex education is even MORE important, since the repercussions of not knowing the basics of it and how to be safe while having it are pretty damn severe.

And on that note, I have to admit that I’m pretty iffy on teaching anything beyond basic sexual education to kindergartners. Third graders? Yes. But second, first, and little six year olds? Eh… not so much.

In answer to your questions, my last “real” vacation was this past January. My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway to Pittsburgh.

The one thing I have been feeling today is anxious.

And at the end of June is our four day vacation in Ocean City, MD, so it’s a pretty safe bet to say that I am VERY excited for that!

Weekend where I’m actually doing something, continued

It’s always nice to do things on the weekend. For me, the weekend is about relaxing, since we usually do most of our stuff during the week.

That was just… uncomfortable.

Oh man that’s awkward, and slightly creepy. The question wouldn’t bother me too much, and even the response wouldn’t squick me out too much. But the physical contact? I don’t THINK so!

I have had awkward conversations in the past with colleagues, and blah… I always kept my distance after they happened!

So what’s the difference between two different things again?

Psh. Your dad needs to Google his own stuff. And not guilt trip you like that, because that’s just not cool! :(

Friday Five: Keeping it Positive

I definitely hear you on the fact that 2008 is ending. 2008 was NOT a good year for me, thank you very much!

Sunday Sex Survey

I’m going to post this on jenn.nu and link back! :)

Sleeping in

I hate days that start out like that. You rush and rush and rush, and never feel totally relaxed and on top of things like you would on a normal day.

As far as waking times… um, when the kids get up? Heh. We operate on a later schedule, so typically we’re all up by 10-10:30.

» Posted By Jenn On October 24, 2008 @ 11:23 am

Study, study, study, splat.

10:50am is such a weird start time. I wish you the best of luck with your midterm. Hopefully you’ll do fine. :)

Cupcakes rock. I have cupcakes right now, but honestly I’m over the whole icing thing, so I’m leaving them for Alyssa and Ryan to enjoy.

And now to answer your questions (I turned on my cell phone for the second question, heh):

1) Napping on the sofa with my head in my husband’s lap. He usually doesn’t cuddle too much with me until later at night, so it was nice to have some unexpected cuddle time!

2) “You sure? What would you like for dinner?” – sent to my friend about coming over for dinner tonight.

Squish

If my mother was your mom, she would have told him something untrue or unflattering, so I suppose you should consider yourself lucky. 😉

» Posted By Jenn On September 15, 2008 @ 9:32 pm

So predictable

Haha… that totally sounds like something I would do with Dan!

» Posted By Jenn On May 24, 2008 @ 12:31 pm

Challenge me.

Hmm. I can think of some rather R rated things. 😉 And a few uncomfortable things. One being inspired from a thread on a message board: tell us about something or someone (or the stereotypical someone) that makes you uncomfortable, and why.

If that doesn’t float your boat, how about… five quirks? What you find to be your biggest flaw?
