Sweet christing potato, everyone is getting married these days! I'm so glad I got that over with a few years ago...

SO I have like, 4 weddings to go to this year. Which is nice but also makes for an expensive summer.

It has been hotter than a whorehouse in Savannah out there, which is nice and all, but so odd. We had no spring, we leapt straight from winter to summer. It makes me sad, my favorite seasons are autumn and spring. Death and Birth. The changeling seasons.

I am feeling stressed and I am feeling overbooked. Every weekend something is going on and sometimes three somethings in a row and I am finding it hard to figure out who to say no to and who to say yes to because inevitably someone's feelings will be hurt.

I feel like closing myself up like a flower just like that cummings poem. *sigh* I wish someone would write something like that for me, just my luck to marry an artist instead

I am feeling bones grinding in my knees pop pop POP every time I go up or down stairs, I am young and already my body is falling apart. Blame it on youth, you never consider the fact that it is the only one you get.

So SO quit EQ, things should be grumpier around the house because of it.
I am slowing to a stop and I hope y'all don't mind if I just...cave...in.

8. Epee, foil, or saber?
9. If Mouth, fluent in Spanish, was able to explain in detail to Rosalita the details of the Walsh family's drug and sexual exploits, why was it so difficult for him to figure out she was saying "Don't sign" after she found the gems that were hidden in Mikey's marble bag?
He had studied and memorized the exploits bit by heart, to be purposefully shocking to her. So when it came to the don't sign bit, it took him a while to figure it out.
10. If you had to kill one person (you can include yourself), who would it be?
I would do it to my self before I would harm someone else.
11. Do you have any environmental concerns about strip-mining the moon?
I am tired of the world being raped by our greed. And not at all surprised they would move on to the moon, but it does sadden/anger me.

Two small children. :p
23. Red light. Late night. No traffic. Run it?
Hells no. Our town cops like to lurk in shadows.
24. Time out! How can Zack take Kelly to the prom if she's already going with Slater?
Hahahah I loved that episode! Oh but what bout the one where she ends up with her boss! And Slater and Momma are singing in the gym and Zach and Kelly are crying their eyes out outside. Or! The one where she fell in love with Screech!But the topper is the episode that dare not speak its name. You know. The real "excited" one.
25. If The Eagles got into a fight with each other, which one would be left standing at the end?
I have no idea.
26. Cut off in traffic. Do you use the finger, lay on the horn, shout obscenities, or just let it slide?Obscenities Obscenities Obscenities. Then the finger. Then some more obscenities.
27. It was once said that a woman should feel like a hot water bottle filled with cream, not a paper bag filled with coathangers. Grab your significant other. Explain what he or she feels like, using the most abstract simile possible.

34. Who is the voice over the loudspeaker of hell? Is is Art Bell, Bobby Likis, J.T. The Brick, or other?

You are a lover; borrow Cupid's wings,
And soar with them above a common bound.
I am too sore enpierced with his shaft
To soar with his light feathers, and so bound,
I cannot bound a pitch above dull woe.
Under love's heavy burden do I sink.
And, to sink in it, should you burden love;
Too great oppression for a tender thing.
Is love a tender thing? it is too rough,
Too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn.
If love be rough with you, be rough with love;
Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down.
Give me a case to put my visage in.
A visor for a visor! What care I
What curious eye doth quote deformities?
Here are the beetle brows shall blush for me.

Nay, as they dare. I will bite my thumb at them;
which is a disgrace to them, if they bear it.
SAMSON bites his thumb.
Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?
I do bite my thumb, sir.
Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?
Is the law of our side, if I say 'Ay'
No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir, but I
bite my thumb, sir.
Do you quarrel, sir?
Quarrel sir! no, sir.
If you do, sir, I am for you: I serve as good a man as you.
No better.
Well, sir.

42. Could you kill if your life was threatened?
Tough question. I don't know. Do I have the means necessary? How "threatened" is my life? Do I have a chance to talk my way out of it?

I have yet to play that evil game with D. I keep reminding myself to, but I have been on a writing streak lately and don't want to break it. but soon!

/shout NOBODY GROUP W/D HE IS A KS'ER!!!!!1111111

CbN made me blink yesterday by inviting me into a channel with a really nasty name. Of course there was a story behind it but at first I was a little taken aback hehehee. Thanks CbN you made me laugh.

Q is the bestest correspondent I have had in a long time, WE LOVE YOU Q WHEREVER YOU ARE

fg is a wonderful wonderful lady and she makes me laugh without even trying. She deserves all sorts of happiness and fun.

S is going to be 24 this week. She is one of my bestest of bestest friends and I adore her.

cod is a sillyhead and his woman A is too, but they always make me smile and I am blessed to know them. I will send them cookies soon!

I hope all is well with B.

I hope fw and qs are safe on their journeys.

hb just came back home and while I realize this makes her sad, it makes me sorta happy because she is at a more accessable location than before. June is fine for a BBQ lady, we'll talk soon :)

My mom deserves a lot of props lately, she has been really supportive in ways she hasn't been since...well, I can't even remember. But she is being great lately. It's almost hard to believe.

I haven't spoken with bb in a while, but I always read his things. I am glad he made it back home safe.

Kf is going to Ireland next week, I am so excited for her! Kf is an amazing person with so much energy and vitality, and it is infectious and great.

P is the rockingest robot cowboy ninja kitten in the universe! TROO

By, I am working on a reply. I miss talking to you. Are you ok?

The fact that T calls me "Lady Grace" makes me feel nice.

Biii makes me smile, his interpretations of my gibberish are high quality and always good for a giggle.

jb is moving this month. Moving in jb's world involves a lot of Wild Turkey and very few boxes.

sf is having her baby soon! Wow. I am so excited for her!

dm is a silly monkeypants.

I wonder how wn has been lately? I hope all is well in his universe. No leaping lemmings please. I am not finished knitting the net to catch.

T came over the other night with her baby A. He is such a good little guy, hardly heard from him. Meanwhile my rapscallions were all over the place. heee. Trisha, come over more often.

oj is in love, and it is sweet to see. I hope it works out for him.

Mar is supposed to go to a meeting with me this morning. Will she make it? I hope so.

fz is a wonderful sillyhead. YAY FOR YOU!

r0 moves soon, on the 23rd in fact. Then she will be home with her man wds. r0, r0, don't forget we love you r0.

In spite of the fact that he drives me batty lately, I really do love SO.

These are the things I am thinking about randomly, sporadically this morning. There are more things pertaining to these people and hell more people too, but those thoughts are for my consumption alone.
