Ironically, we got an offer in the mail for Highlights last week. I thought to myself, if we get Arianna this, it won't be all marked up and 30 years old. And yeah, someone from Highlights totally reads your blog but that couldn't be more you.

Sorry. Didn't read the entire post. I got stuck where you said that you sleep 8 hours. 8 hours!?! You get to sleep for 8 hours? We go to bed at 9, wake up at 7 (or somewhere around there) and though the other two people (four if you count the fuzzy people with tails) get plenty of sleep, I haven't gotten a full nights sleep since I was four months pregnant. Thanks to the mysterious illness that has me randomly feeling sick to my stomach at all hours of the day and night, constant worrying that I've got cancer or some other horrid illness that's slowly killing me and general inability to sleep, during that 10 hour span, I might get three hours of good sleep and seven hours of WISHING I were getting good sleep.

So, I won't be using Google any longer because I don't feel they need to know everything I look at and they certainly don't need to be tracking it. To me, it's too close to socialism, which seems to be getting more and more acceptable the longer our current president is in office. Sorry to offend, I know you're a Democrat and I'm assuming you voted for him (because quite frankly, the alternative was a HORRIBLE choice and Obama spoke such sweet lies, even my husband was sucked in). In short, I don't agree with it.

Here's what you need to do to be more "handsome." For one, you're already handsome. Always have been. Age has put a fine coat of dust on you. To get it off and uncover the hotness within, you need to: 1) Don't take offense at anything I say. 2) Cut the beard. It's not really you and it puts about 10 pounds extra on your face. 3) Don't put so much gel in your hair. Go back to the "messy" hair style. The severe side part is a little on the nerdy side. You're a geek, not a nerd. (geeks are cute/hot. nerds are...not) Grow the hair out a little too. Not TOO much, but a little. Maybe Edward Cullen style (don't play. you know who he is and don't get him confused with Robert Pattinson. Pattinson's hair is skanky) 4) Gotta work of those love handles that were showing a little on your last episode of the Big Bang. I think you said a while back that you were working on that though. Do all that and you will have dusted yourself off.

Okay, I don't get your response, but I'm really slow on the uptake. I'll get it in a few months. Aside from that, yeah, that's how far down our society is. We wonder what app the Jersey Shore oranges have rather than someone a bit more, dare I say important?, like the president. (can't stand the man, but i would wonder what's on his phone LONG BEFORE i would wonder what's on theirs)

That cover does look very interesting. Who is it being published by?

Most of my stories come from dreams that I've had. When I'm writing, I'm also listening to music and this story that I've been TRYING to write for around 12 years now, has been a terrible thorn in my side. I put it down for a good five years in there and didn't touch it because I couldn't seem to find a plot-line that I liked. I would trash anywhere from 5 to 10 pages out of frustration and then a week later, want them back. Then about three months ago, I started thinking about it (this was in the five years i didn't touch, read or even glance at the file). I was watching a movie late one night (he's just not that in to you, because it automatically started on our computer after Harry Potter) and the ending scene, where Justin Long kisses the girl, instead of falling in love with Justin Long like you're supposed to, I was looking at the camera angle. I zoned in to the way his hair was cut and the sideburn and his hand, which was on the girls face and I thought, "Hey, that kinda looks like ***********. That could work...yeah...that would be kinda...well but Justin Long is kinda short if he were her twin...but he could be *******'s brother...no, I like the twin idea better...(fast forward to a phone call with my mom the next day, telling her excitedly about it, and then afterwards)...but Alex is tall enough (friend of mine). He could do it...and he's got dark features...YES!) But still, no scene. Then a song came on a show were were watchign and EUREKA!! It seemed like every song i listened to after that wrote the story for me. I'm a bit stuck right now, but I'm just waiting for the right song. Long way to say, it sucks when there is a road block, but so almost Earth-shattering when it gets cleared. *a side not is that I also have to invision the scene, which means i have to put actual people into those characters to see them better, which is why Justin Long wasn't working because he's too short to play the particular character I was forming and looks too much like another character to pass as the first characters twin brother.

Seeing that picture almost makes me want to send you a picture of Missouri (vastly boring and seriously depressing and soul-draining) as relaliation for the cruel and hateful thing you've done to those of us stuck in the midwest by not taking us along with you, (i fit in a small suitcase, my husband is big enough to pass off as a bodyguard and my child has redish-light brown hair, she could pass for yours and Anne's for a little while! {as long as you don't put her to close to the "bodyguard" because she looks just like him and if she called him daddy instead of you, well that would just be embarrassing and the one time someone from US Weekly would take notice and actually print something about you and it probably wouldn't be about any of the 8 projects you've been working on}) but I'd hate to ruin the inspiration that can seem so fleeting, yet you've somehow managed to grab hold of.

So yeah, don't like beer unless it's a cheerleader beer. What caught me about this post? The action figure in the background. What is that?

To an insider, this means something. To an outsider, this is very, VERY strange.

First: What's Epstein-Barr? Second: At church, there's the, "Stand up and greet someone around you!" moment before the singing and I CANNOT STAND that moment. Why do people like to brag that they are sick and more importantly, WHY DON'T THEY STAY HOME!! I worked for T-Mobile for a very long, very hard year and when the stomach flu was going around, people were throwing up in their trash cans at their desks because you would get in trouble if you were off the phone long enough to run to the bathroom and if you called in or went home, you were fired. One day, two people in my pod of 15 were doing this. I faked a headache, used my FMLA and took myself home where it was safe, and then swallowed as many oranges as I could. In short: Totally don't blame you and the haters, would they perfer that you wore a surgical mask and latex gloves to greet them? Try it, see how they like THAT...Sheldon.

***Holy cow, hope that wasn't me. In the mean time, while I search the database to see if it was, I'm shocked to realize that I was there in the beginning! I was looking around on StarTrek.com because we were rewatching TNG and I saw a link for your blog. I went over and got hooked (except for that 6 yrs or so that i stopped reading for some reason i don't remember now) because of your ability to say what you think and only halfway apologize for it later (something I can now do thanks to you! it's only gotten me fired from my jobs twice. bosses don't want to be told that treating people like crap isn't right and making others do your work for you makes you lazy and being a raging bitch means that no one likes you. they don't like that for some reason). I assumed that you had had a blog for years by that time. Anyway, very cool. Congratulations.

In those pictures, what's the big yellow one that says "Set phasers to kill" about?

Awesome. Even I, who has no interest in women in that manner, would play that game with her because Robin was freakin' hot. Either me or my husband, but if it's him he has to record it for me to watch later because Robin was freakin' HOT. TMI? Don't care. Robin was FREAKIN' HOT.

We just started watching it and are literally, on the 3rd episode of the first season. At least we have a ways to go and can enjoy it for a while, but it sucks to get invested in a show that is actually GOOD and know it's said and done and once you make it to the last episode, there's not another season waiting around the corner. I suppose some completely fabricated ghost hunter show will takes it's place or probably another "reality" show featuring a bunch of brats that are proud to be the race they are yet know absolutely nothing about that races background and culture. I like fiction that claims to be fiction, not fiction that claims to be reality.

I absolutely, to my very soul, HATE World of Warcraft. It very nearly ended my marriage 6 months before it even started. My husband tried desperately to get me interested, but after the billionth time of saying that dinner was ready and have him wander in the dark kitchen a FULL 8 hours later, asking where it was and discovering that it was 2 in the morning, dinner was over and put away and that I had been in bed for 6 hours because I worked at 5 in the morning, my patience for that game ended. His douchebag friend got him back into it a while back and the same shit started over again. This time, we have a 2 year old and he has a wife that has NO patience for that Stupid Fucking Game, as I have labled it. Yeah, he's not playing it anymore. As for brewing beer with your son, awesome! Sweet story too.

One might say that those people are just super excited to see their favorite celebrity and didn't get a chance to at Comicon, or couldn't afford to go. One might also say, you've been looking to hoist your particular star back up for years. Why are you complaining about it? But one might also need to stop and think. The first thing that jumped out at me? "Seperated me from my friends AND MY SON..." Yeah, I realize that your sons are adults now, but they are still your sons, your children and if that had been me, I would have been in a blind rage. Second, it doesn't sound as if they were any better than the papparazzi and yeah, those pictures probably ended up on eBay that same night. Big fan, have been since TNG, but NOT going to camp out to hopefully catch a glimpse of an annoyed individual that's probably heard "Hey Wesley Crusher!" way too many times to count. The only thing worthy of that activity is the iPhone.

I would love to take my husband to Comicon. I think we would BOTH love it, to be completely honest. (totally drooling over the mario women's wallet on thinkgeek.com. time to stop denying it) but I agree about the Hollywood taking it over thing. I saw the cast of some show was going one year, can't remember the show, and my first thought was...*blink* Why are they there? And really, does Hayden Pantywear, or whatever her name is, mix in well with the natives or is it a little like having Paris Hilton show up?

I laughed till I cried when I read this because I swear, if my 2 year old daughter could talk, that is EXACTLY what she would say about the general outdoors from April to October...minus the cat stuff. Their stuff is in the basement.
