"Pride and Prejudice"--A+. I highly enjoyed it. I watched a hilarious movie with Chinese subtitles this morning involving a fish that could come on land and eat people. We couldn't figure out what the title was. Books. Hmmm. Well, I can tell you that "History Lesson for Girls" SUCKED. Man, I hated that book. I liked "Goodnight Nobody" a lot but I know your VIEWS on chick lit. I could keep the chick lit machine cranking on my own, I think.

I'm really glad you wrote this.

Safe travels to you both. I can't wait to read your posts from the other side.
Dude. Your fears are the same as mine. I am reduced to a state of panic everytime I imagine the 18 hour flight to China WITHOUT my Burt's Bees. If they make me throw it away, I'm smearing the whole tube on my lips first. I don't care what I look like. Also, the contacts? Yikes. Me too. Finally, how are we supposed to get an 11 month old baby home on another 18 hour, chapstick-less flight without some liquid "sleep medication"???? Stupid terrorists. I hate them all.

These days the students do not have the sense of fear that they SHOULD during a tornado drill. Instead the girls' asses are hanging out all over the place and the boys are trying to see who can make who fart. Entertaining, to be sure.

Oh, that movie was INSANE. Remember how badly it scared Jeff? He would FREAK OUT if a cloud wafted across the sun as well. Toy cash register? Surely not.

Okay, my comment was SUPPOSED to say I heart your dad. I don't know why it didn't show up. Hmph.

AWESOME. I your dad. I hope I get to do this in China!

PS--my favorite part of that picture is the pillowcase clutched in your hand.

Y'all! Lawyerish was supposed to look like that! You know, how Jon always looked sultry and sexy? That's her-in a way. heh. Whoo, we are gonna have some fun this weekend!

Nay. They did not have the slate pencils in the general store and we deemed chalk as inferior! One cannot do sums on a real live slate with mere chalk! This story. Kills me.

I would love to see it. I have a scrapbook started for Maggie but it's kind of stopped. I need some incentive to finish it!

I know what happened to the revolvers! This kid John got them because he had a "band" and he hung them in their "rehearsal area." They had the directions for The Care and Feeding of an Ette on the back that we wrote. That trip rocked. I need to find my pictures.

List of obsessions dutifully done! I was always slightly nervous when I was changing my clothes in my room full of posters. What if they could SEE ME????

Oh dude. I love these posts of yours. They're my favorite. It's so interesting to read your perspective on it now as compared to how I remember it. You rule.

You know where you need to move. We're finding you a house when you're here in August. You can be rich or po' here. It's all good.

I stand in solidarity with you Jonniker! I know nothing of this "So You Think You Can Dance" nonsense. Plus I was a little taken aback in regards to Lawyerish wanting to take a class to learn to move like me! HAHA

He was also guilty of the torture of adoption dolls, namely Kimberly Pearl. Poor KP. She had it rough. Is the green carpet and brown door from Illinois? Because I remember white doors and brown carpet. Star Wars figurines. The only thing that topped the fun of those was the Domino Rally.

Oh, dude. I was petrified that someone was breaking into our house WELL in to college. Yes, my mom had to sleep with me when I was home from college for the summer!!!! One night some of Jeff's friends took his car and moved it into the front yard and left it there with the running lights on and the radio playing softly. (you could start it without a key). What was the first thing my mom said, after I woke up the whole house in a panic? "Jeff! You know she gets scared!!!!"

HOW you remember this stuff is absolutely beyond me. Although I do remember a frightening scene in "mixed up files" involving the kids being stuck in a closet with a lot of scary fur coats. Was "Duffy Moon" the one with the flying tricycle? And remember the one with the red balloon? Which, incidentally, I have a copy of for you that I got at the used book store a LONG time ago and forgot about. So maybe I remember more than I thought I did. Childhood. Good times.
Ohhh, not good about crying during confrontational situations. I am a WUSS in parents conferences. I'm always like, "Your child could do better (he's a fuck) and he needs to make sure that he always does his homework (he's going to fail). Then if the parents get mad, I'm all uhhhh...uhhhh. I loathe myself.

I love your car seat! I LOVE IT! I'm so sad that we have boring green now. Re: the posting about Angelina adopting kids of different religions so they can teach each other about them? Um, aren't her children going to be whatever religion she teaches them about as she is not adopting 10 year olds or anything? That's weird. Surely that can't be right. That would be like adopting a baby from China so she could teach you Chinese.
