Mommy Wants Vodka

…Or A Mail-Order Bride

My Own Pink Sparkly Elephant


Before I alienate all but the two of my readers I pay to read my drivel, I wanted to assure you all that from now on, I promise not to speak constantly of this pregnancy. I personally am not that interested to read pregnancy only blogs, I don’t much care for tickers or blinkies–just not my style–and I can only imagine that you feel the same way.

I’m going to treat this pregnancy, for however long it lasts, as though I am not pregnant, I’m going to reinsert my head firmly up my ass and stick my fingers in my ears (don’t ask for the logistics here) and say “lalalala” rather than take out my maternity clothes and rub my (fat) belly serenely.

We’re just all going to pretend that I didn’t tell you my news yesterday, okay? If/when something worthwhile bodes mentioning, I’ll tell you all, and if you want to talk about this stuff, click on my email me button and we can chat. I heart emails.

But before we close the door on this chapter, I must say a warm thank you to everyone who has congratulated me on this…stuff. It’s certainly a surprise, and I’m certainly thrilled, and I 100% without a doubt love you all immensely. But you knew that, didn’t you?


So let’s talk about something else again, shall we? In the vein of new beginnings, I am going to personally write a meme. Yes, Aunt Becky is going to write her VERY OWN MEME. Go ahead and play along in the comments.

What is your biggest pet peeve? Shit, I have too many to count, literally, but one of the ones that usually bugs me the most is when people don’t finish things that they start.

Also white carpet in general. Who the fuck thinks that white carpet is a good thing to install? It ought to be outlawed.

Anyone going to see the Sex in the City movie? I’m going on Sunday with two of my girlfriends. Between the vat of popcorn I plan on submerging myself in and the promise of talk of weenies, I’m pumped.

What is your favorite crappy song to jam out to? For me, the genre matters, but anything by Rod Stewart, especially You’re In My Heart. Oh and Mili Vanilli’s Blame it on the Rain.

What makes you gag? Barf. Barf. Barf. I know, I’m a nurse, I should be able to handle it like a Big Girl, but you know what? It makes me run screaming for the hills.

What’s your least favorite thing to do? Hands down, cooking. I hate to cook, I’m not an inspired cook, and pretty much if I could order take out for the rest of my life, I’d be happy. Paradoxically, I am an excellent baker.

What’s your favorite part of blogging? Sappily enough, it’s meeting new people. I’m stuck home alone with the kids, and they’re not exactly always good company. But The Internet reminds me that even if I feel alone, I’ve got a fucking army marching behind me.

AND, I’ve done a pretty awesome chocolate exchange with a friend (okay, I need to get my lazy ass to MAIL her the chocolate) and it was super cool.

Anyone down with some sort of exchange? It’ll be fuuuun!

All right, Party People, here comes the audience participation part of this whole thing. Either play along and answer my uninspired questions in the comments or ask ME a burning question that you’ve always wanted to know (I know, I know, I blank whenever someone tells me to do this. I always end up asking something totally stupid because, seriously, I can never think of a thing).

    YOU are fabulous.

    Pet Peeve: Stupid effing people. (nuff said)

    Movie: No! My girls are going tonight, I have kid stuff to do, so not right now, but I hope you have a fab time watching it.

    Fav Crappy Song: There are TOO many, I cannot pick just one…..

    Gag: Snot, either my own or having to look at someone elses (not my kids, but other people’s kids snotty noses just make me sick)

    Least Favorite thing to do: PUT away laundry, don’t mind washing, folding, hate putting away.

    Fav part of blogging: Aligning myself with such a great support system. and all the laughs…certainly the laughs.

    What is your biggest pet peeve? I too have many pet peeves, oodles if you will. Although lately I find movies/commercials in which they superimpose (sp?) a fake mouth over a baby or animal, making them talk when they normally would not be. I was at the movies this weekend and they are coming out with a movie full of nothing but talking fucking chihuahas. 2 hours of terrible mexican accent talking chihuahas. I almost threw something at the screen.

    Are you going to see the Sex in the City movie? I’m going with my friend from work. Wouldn’t even dream of asking the nearly-husband to brave that scene.

    What is your favorite crappy song to jam out to?
    Blackstreet – No Diggity

    What makes you gag? Anything having to do with damage to finger/toenails, there is just something about it that makes me seriously woosy. And I have the stomach of steel.

    What’s your least favorite thing to do?
    Its probably a toss up between folding laundry (the last load sat in the basket for two weeks. And cooking, I haven’t cooked dinner in years because my fiance is a much better cook and it doesn’t stress him like it does me. Incindentally I also am a world class baker (My Pièce de résistance being the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cake I made for my nerdy 35yo co-worker). I think its do to the fact that I’m a scientist. I like my set rules and recipes…none of this namby pamby wishy washy bullsh*t like when it comes to cooking.

    Happy Friday Becky!

    I will play I am to damn lazy to do a meme on my own blog.

    Pet Peeve- Dish rags left in the sink

    I can not wait to see Sex and the City. I saw a interview with Sarah J Parker last night and I am sooo pumped but we have ball tournaments all weekend so I will have to wait.

    Fav Jammin Out Song- California Love by Tu Pac

    Things that make me gag- See dirty dishrag, and I can not drink after kids not even my own.

    I abhore housework and am by choice domestically challenged. I made my husband swear he did not care before we got married and part of the reason i love him so much is because he is so clean.

    I blog so that I can bitch and complain doesn’t everyone??

  4. On May 30th, 2008 at 10:49 am Kyddryn Says:

    Oh, man, you know I can’t let this slide!

    What is your biggest pet peeve? I only get one?? Hmm…people who don’t keep their word, follow through, do what they said they would do. It really drives me mad.

    I agree with the white carpet sentiment, too. I think it’s a conspiracy by the carpet cleaning cabal.

    Anyone going to see the Sex in the City movie? Nope, nope, no, no, hells no, not if you paid me (unless it’s an obscene amount of money, but even then I’d probably bring a book or some crochet to distract me). I’m game for some theatre popcorn, though…mmm…popcorn…

    What is your favorite crappy song to jam out to? I have no idea how to answer this, except to say…I heart country music, and will sing along at the top of my lungs whether my passengers want me to or not. So does The Evil Genius…you haven’t heard funny until you’ve heard a three-year old singing Honey Tonk Badonk-A-Donk. Really. Or a four/five-year-old belting out Six Foot Town.

    What makes you gag? Something one oughtn’t mention in polite company, but it involves an activity with the male anatomy.

    What’s your least favorite thing to do? See the above.

    What’s your favorite part of blogging? Having a place to vent where there’s a chance someone will get me – and they comment about how they get me!! Blogging is creating a new kind of global community, and may save the collective sanity of the human race. Go us!!

    Well, you DID ask.

    Shade and Sweetwater,

  5. On May 30th, 2008 at 10:53 am Hope Says:

    Pet peeve – waiting on someone late…I like to be the one late lol. someone not flushing the commode gets me!

    I want to go see it…I LOVED the show. I will probably have to go alone, my bff is in Myrtle Beach and that would be a long trip to see a movie!

    Friends in low places lol

    vomit is at the top of my list too, and snot!

    I hate to wash dishes or scoop the litter.

    It is one of the few outlets I can say what I pretty much want and my family doesn’t read it lol.

    Thanks for the comment 🙂

    Biggest Pet Peeve: People’s inflated sense of entitlement/Ignorance

    Sex and the City?: Nope – not my thing.

    Crappy Jam song: Anything Old School Micheal Jackson or Prince. I will Little Red Corvette myself into other dimensions! I have also been known to rock out to some Parliament Funkadelic or Curtis Mayfield.

    Makes Me Gag: Doesn’t take much. I have the weakest stomach ever.

    Least favorite thing: I have a lot of least faves – but I really hate getting gas for my car. Beyond the price, I just hate to stop. I also hate really negative people. Nobody likes to hang out with someone that can’t even stand themselves.

    What I like about blogging: It has been a good release for me and has given me a hobby. I had been lacking hobbies – unless you count work – which I do not.

    Hug those babies of yours for me.

  7. On May 30th, 2008 at 11:03 am Cassie Says:

    Pet Peeve: Not getting my way! HA!

    Movie: Yes-My college roommate is coming into town tomorrow so it is perfect timing 🙂

    Fav Crappy Song: I really LOVE dancing to “I wanna dance with somebody” by Whitney Houston. This is especially fun when done in a gay bar (b/c really, what other bar will play this song?)

    Gag: A lot of things. I have a very weak stomach. But puke is right up there, especially the sound of someone while they’re puking. Ugh, ok now I’ve gotten myself grossed out!

    Least Favorite thing to do: Vacuuming.

    Fav part of blogging: Connecting with people. And reading everyone else’s funny stories!

  8. On May 30th, 2008 at 11:03 am Sara Says:

    Pet peeve- People who are too stupid to get that the world doesn’t revolve around them.

    Movie-Nah, never watched the show.

    Song- ANYTHING from the early 90s. Love me some early 90s. Drives the husband crazy, which makes it even more fun!

    Gag- Bodily fluids. Even from my own kids.

    Least favorite thing- washing dishes by hand. I swear to Bill it makes my feet itch.

    Fav thing about blogging- I get to tell on everyone!

  9. On May 30th, 2008 at 11:25 am kbreints Says:

    Pet Peeve – People who cannot make up their mind. Hate it!

    Movie – I don’ think I caught one episode of the show, so un interested in the movie.

    Song – Love Early – mid ninties stuff!

    Gag? yeah I would have to agree with you on this one.

    Least Favorite thing to do? Umm – Wash dishes – Damn I want that dishwasher!

    Blogging…. I love that I will have all of it later in life to read through. I man 3 years later I read through about just after Henry was born and go “wow! I forgot about that!”

    Btw- You Rock!

  10. On May 30th, 2008 at 11:29 am elthecubbiechick Says:

    My favorite song to jam to is Sir-Mix-Alots -“I Like Big Butts” I sing this out-loud in any and everydressing room I have to go into at a store. They love that at Nordstroms by the way. At Express I had one of the more effeminate gay male employees come over and start dancing with me in front of the mirror in the hallway. Until they make pants for girls with junk-in-the-trunk, I will continue to sing. 🙂

  11. On May 30th, 2008 at 11:30 am Rayne of Terror Says:

    What is your biggest pet peeve? When someone feeds the cats treats on MY SIDE OF THE BED on clean sheets I WASHED AND CHANGED so that when I get in bed on Sunday night after a long day of scaling Mt Laundry, THERE ARE CAT TREAT CRUMBLES AND SLOBBER SPOTS ALL AROUND AND UNDER ME.

    Anyone going to see the Sex in the City movie? I don’t have any interest, this is a pop culture thing that passed me by while I was coveting backless hippie shirts on Phish tour.

    What is your favorite crappy song to jam out to? You got me in a Rod Stewart frame of mind, Maggie May is awesome to jam out to.

    What makes you gag? Diarreah all over the floor, bathtub, etc when H was still in diapers. I’d clean and vomit.

    What’s your least favorite thing to do? Explore new parks and other outside activities with my son. see my other blog –

    What’s your favorite part of blogging? Making connections and friends with other bloggers.

  12. On May 30th, 2008 at 11:31 am Rayne of Terror Says:

    Whoops I can’t read – my most favorite thing to do is explore new parks with my son.

    My LEAST favorite thing to do is grocery shop with my son in tow.

  13. On May 30th, 2008 at 1:42 pm CLC Says:

    Hey- meant to say congrats yesterday but got caught up at work. I hope everything goes smoothly this time. And you shouldn’t pretend like it’s not happening for my (or other baby lost mamas) sake. I am big girl and I can handle it! Have a great weekend.

  14. On May 30th, 2008 at 2:17 pm Frozen Star Says:

    What is your biggest pet peeve? Phew, don’t even get me started on my weird-ass phobias and pet peeves. There are so many of them. I’m going to have to devote an entire blog post to them at one point. I hate buses, dentists, men who wear pink, men with long hair, grammar and spelling mistakes, and I’m terrified of having birds fly in the near vicinity of my head.

    Yeah. These aren’t even among my more amusing ones.

    Anyone going to see the Sex in the City movie?
    Maybe? I don’t know. I’ve never really watched Sex in the City…

    What is your favorite crappy song to jam out to?
    I don’t listen to crappy music. -grins- Or maybe I just don’t want to admit that I still listen to Backstreet Boys from time to time.

    What makes you gag? The show ‘How clean is your house?’ It makes me feel good about my cleaning habits, and I really don’t have anything to be proud of.

    What’s your least favorite thing to do? Cleaning. =)

    What’s your favorite part of blogging? Being able to spout as much crap as I want to.

    BTW, if you’re having a chocolate exchange: Norwegian chocolate is the best in the world. Don’t listen to the Swiss, they’re lying!

  15. On May 30th, 2008 at 3:40 pm Holly Says:

    What is your biggest pet peeve? I have OCD so there are too many to list. Off the top of my head I’d have to say fake people. What’s wrong with some honesty people? (not anyone here just life in general)

    Are you going to see the Sex in the City movie? HECK YEAH! Taking my BFF while I’m visiting her – in about 2days…LOL)

    What is your favorite crappy song to jam out to?
    Any current POP song…LOL I’m a dork

    What makes you gag? Other peoples nasty kids. Drool, snot, vomit whatever…..awful considering I have a homedaycare going on. Gross kids gross me out. Not mine of course – cause well that OCD is in an effective mommy tool.

    What’s your least favorite thing to do? Oh goodness – cleaning bathrooms and laundry.

  16. On May 30th, 2008 at 3:47 pm Heather P. Says:

    Honey, I am so there with you on the Barf.
    My husband gets so mad at me for running away when our kiddo gets sick, but if I don’t, he will be cleaning up twice the vomit.

  17. On May 30th, 2008 at 4:04 pm Heather Says:

    Biggest pet peeve: People who shed hair all over the white tile in the bathroom and who don’t have the decency or pride *ahem* to clean it up! I could knit a sweater (albeit an icky one) out the hair that falls on my pristine floor after a certain someone showers. You’d think he’d be hairless by now, but no.

    SATC: nope, but it sounds like I’m in the minority here. I just never caught that train, I guess.

    Favorite crappy song: Walk like an Egyptian by the Bangles, any old school Michael Jackson, and George Michael

    Gags: Umm, kid-snot. Especially cold kid snot. That hangs out of their noses. Blech.

    Least favorite thing to do: camp.

    Bogging loves: Tossing my “family-filter” out the window and meeting all you lovely folks!

  18. On May 30th, 2008 at 4:23 pm Lola Says:

    Biggest Peeve – Almost everything peeves me these days, but I’ll have to say people chewing anywhere in the vacinity of my ear. As a matter of fact, I don’t like anyone standing too close to me ever!

    Going to Sex? – We spoke of that earlier, and yes, I can’t wait. My friend just called from SC, and she’s back on Sunday.

    Fave crappy song – Funny you ask, cause I was just rocking out to I Woke Up in Love This Morning by the Partridge Family not ten minutes ago. How fucking gay is that?

    Gag material – Well, someone already took the blowjob answer, which is so obvious, so I’ll stick with you on vomit. If I see it happen or smell it, I’m right there next to the person. I even puked once when I saw a dog do the most giant white puke in the shape of a can of dog food. I kid you not.

    Least fave thing to do – VACUUM. By the time I get to the end of it, you can barely tell it was ever done. What a waste of time.

    Best part of blogging – Ranting, of course, and seeing just how funny and crude people really are.

  19. On May 30th, 2008 at 5:27 pm Sky Says:

    What is your biggest pet peeve? When people act helpless when you know damn good and well they can do something without assistance. Annoying twits..

    Anyone going to see the Sex in the City movie? I’m too tired.

    What is your favorite crappy song to jam out to? Lately, it’s NKOTB’s Right Stuff.

    What makes you gag? Barf. Barf. Barf.I second this…When I hear it…I run…fast.

    What’s your least favorite thing to do? My hair in the mornings. What a pain.

    What’s your favorite part of blogging? All of the great people that I’ve met. Each and everyone of them is incredible!

  20. On May 30th, 2008 at 5:30 pm Calliope Says:

    What is your biggest pet peeve? people not using turn signals. I know I should get over it but it PISSED ME OFF! Also can’t stand when things are almost empty and my Mother doesn’t add the item to the grocery list. SO I come back from shopping and am all, “WHAT! Why didn’t you tell me you took the last toilet paper roll??”

    Anyone going to see the Sex in the City movie? I wish! I haven’t seen a movie at an actual movie theatre since early 2004. Makes me depressed to think about that. especially since I used to see upwards of 4 a week in my last life.

    What is your favorite crappy song to jam out to? the entire soundtrack to the musical Hair

    What makes you gag? certain aspects of poop. um, as it relates to caretaking. that is all I will say.

    What’s your least favorite thing to do? unload a dishwasher

    What’s your favorite part of blogging? connecting with people and feeling not alone (or crazy)

  21. On May 30th, 2008 at 6:03 pm MsPrufrock Says:

    Because it’s always about ME, ME, ME:

    What is your biggest pet peeve? I hate it when people take shortcuts. I don’t mean when they’re driving, but in life. Do the fucking work you lazy assholes. Put the effort in like everyone else.

    Anyone going to see the Sex in the City movie? Hell yes! I only wish I had a female friend to go with, but the husband it is. He is actually not dreading it – just yesterday we were reminiscing about our favourite moments and ranking our favourite SATC males. Heh. He’s like my very own gay male BFF!

    What is your favorite crappy song to jam out to? This list could go on for years – Come Sail Away by Styx, and any early/mid 90s radio alternative, like, Machinehead by Bush. ROCK ON!

    What makes you gag? I’m not very easy to gross out, but I’m not at all good with vomit. Just the noise inspires me to dry heave.

    What’s your least favorite thing to do? Wake up at 5am with a child.

    What’s your favorite part of blogging? The socialisation factor – I meet so many fabulous people this way, and I know I would never come across such greatness in everyday life.

    i can’t play. i can’t focus on anything except did i miss a part of this post that had to do with a pink sparkly elephant? granted, i don’t read things very, um, whatev. like sometimes i don’t read ALL the words. but i swear, there was no pink sparkly motherf**king elephant. was there? i will feel so dumb when i post this and then go back and re-read and see the pink sparkly damn elephant.

  25. On May 30th, 2008 at 8:26 pm Coco Says:

    What is your biggest pet peeve?

    Seriously? Adults in positions of authority who cannot spell or even write a coherent sentence. It’s one thing to have been afflicted with a learning disorder or to have been promoted in school when you hadn’t mastered the skills. And typos happen. But when I see people in management, senior execs, and even published authors who cannot tell the difference between “your” and “you’re” or “there”, “they’re” and “their”, or who constantly misspell common words like “responsibility” my teeth grind together so hard that I want to kill someone.

    Anyone going to see the Sex in the City movie?

    Oh, baby. Chris Noth is so hot I would go see him farting the alphabet. Also, I loved the series anyway. So yeah. I’m going.

    What is your favorite crappy song to jam out to?

    Anything by KC and the Sunshine Band, but especially “Get Down Tonight”. I love Disco. I was born too late.

    What makes you gag?

    Cockroaches. I have a phobia. After I smash one, I need to shower.

    Also, that stale, overwhelming perfum-ey thing that some women seem to think is delightful and fresh. People. If you can smell it on yourself an hour later, it’s TOO MUCH. Ease down.

    What’s your least favorite thing to do?

    Dusting. I effing hate it. I have dust bunnies the size of ponies in my house, and I do not care.

    What’s your favorite part of blogging?

    I’m a serious loner IRL, so I love to connect with other people who write well, who are funny and smart and articulate. I live in Vegas. How about a Blogger Convention here, folks?

  26. On May 30th, 2008 at 9:11 pm Angela Says:

    Oh, I thought I saw that good news on Twitter. Congratulations and I am so so so happy for you!!! You can pretend that I didn’t say that if you’d like.

  27. On May 30th, 2008 at 9:21 pm honeywine Says:

    Pet Peeves- Whining. I can’t stand it. I can’t watch that Jon & Kate Plus 8 show because of all the whining from parents and kids.

    SATC- I wish, but probably not. Although if they opened early enough, I’d hit it in the mornings.

    Crappy Song- I refuse to say its crappy, but I listen to “Can’t Smile Without You” by Mannilow a lot!

    Makes me Gag- I’ve castrated animals and dressed out bunny rabbits. I can take pretty much anything.

    Least favorite thing to do- Dusting, dishes, folding clothes. I avoid them at all cost (which is usually a lil something special for M.). Besides, I do EVERYTHING ELSE!

    Favorite part of blogging- Meeting ya’ll, of course. 🙂

  28. On May 30th, 2008 at 9:46 pm andi Says:

    Hey Becky!
    I’m trying to catch up on all my blog reading, so I just read your last few posts. My fingers are crossed for you that this pregnancy works out. Oh, but don’t stick your head up your ass, I hear that totally freaks a fetus out. 🙂

    I’d love to play along with this post, but my brain is all mushy at the moment (like it’s ever any other way).

  29. On May 30th, 2008 at 10:12 pm Jenn Says:

    I think I’ll do this on my own blog (gotta give the people something, right?) tomorrow. Or the day after. Or hell, I may just start it and never finish. Just for you. 😉

    I hate white carpet too.

    Hey Becky-I hope all goes well with this one! I am keeping fingers crossed for you.

    Pet Peeves-I have a ton, but the 2 biggest are bad grammar and bad spelling. I don’t know many computers these days that don’t have spell check.
    SATC-Yes I can’t wait. I even own the series on DVD!
    Crappy song-Anything John Mellencamp.
    Makes me gag-The smell of vomit.
    Least favorite thing to do-putting away laundry. Love to fold, but just can’t seem to put it away.
    Favorite part of blogging-Knowing that I am not alone in all that is Motherhood. I thought I was the “only one” until I started reading blogs.

    I will do a chocolate exchange-or better yet, a Portillos exchange!

  32. On May 31st, 2008 at 12:49 am Ann Says:

    I have to wait two weeks to see SATC and I’m going to go insane. I’m taking my girlyfriend for her 40th bday. Hopefully the crowds will have died down, but I might have to sneak in a late night theatre, buy a gihugant popcorn and pretend it never happened b/c I am not a patient person!!!!!

  33. On May 31st, 2008 at 2:42 am shay Says:

    I missed reading you yesterday so can I still say congrats! I don’t mind reading about, whatever happens so feel free to post whatever you want to:)

    Oh and my pet peeve is people who drive slow in the fast lane…
    I’m not sure if I’ll go to the theater for that or just wait for the vid. We aren’t big theater goers but it would probably be fun!

    Pudding makes me feel gaggy…something about the texture.

    Least fav…cleaning the bathroom. hands down, least fav! YUCK!

    And I just love to talk so…it’s just an extension of that. I love to read the comments and somehow feel connected to the big bad world (what you said mostly)

  34. On May 31st, 2008 at 12:05 pm Queenie Says:

    Congratulations and good luck!

    I think you SHOULD blog about your PG. I’ll bet your posts wouldn’t be anything like anyone else’s PG posts, and I’ll bet I’d enjoy reading them.

  35. On May 31st, 2008 at 2:24 pm A Soldier's Girl Says:

    What is your biggest pet peeve? People who are constantly late….especially when it is my hairdresser!

    Anyone going to see the Sex in the City movie? You know I did & I can’t wait to see what you thought about it?!?

    What is your favorite crappy song to jam out to? Blame it on the Rain? Now that’s an oldie!!! I would have to say anything by Snoop Dog…for some reason he makes me wanna dance.

    What makes you gag? Stinky people! Oh & what kind of nurse…if you don’t mind me asking?

    What’s your least favorite thing to do? Yard work!

    What’s your favorite part of blogging? I agree….meeting new people. Reading things I relate to! I am up for an exchange…I’m down for anything :0 Please note, I don’t have a husband to exchange at the moment 🙂

    My pet peeve is mean people. Those that feel entitled to more and don’t care who they step on or hurt on their journey of selfishness! I think white carpet and white furniture is silly too!

    Yes, I want to see the movie but will probably wait for it come out on DVD.

    My song to jam to – any thing old school Madonna.

    Not too much makes me gag. Maybe lima beans!

    Least fav. thing to do is putting away wash and dusting.

    I blog b/c I love to write and at the same time I get to preserve memories for me and my kids. Anything that is a two-for-one is great in my book!

    Here from NCLM. I think you should blog about your pg! Congrats!

    1st How did you get so fucken cool? Gosh your just so down to earth…the kind of mama I once was but can no longer be and yet you keep just being you!

    2nd now don’t lie to yourself….your gonna lay down in bed every night and think about that little bean growing in your belly, rub the belly, be happy about it and who knows what else….even me…transman Edward did that. Please feel free to share about your pregnancy anytime…no I’m not all for pregnancy blogs but I do like to read about women like you and how you experience your pregnancy. It helps me remember that maybe I was tnot average or typical or like every other mama but I was a mama wanting to grow a baby in my belly.

    3rd…hands down BARF is the worst! One time I had my older son barf in the bed then Rick went in to help him and he barfed, then I barfed and it turned into this big disgusting barf fest. Yuck to barf…nurse or no nurse I can see how barf is just gross!

    I know you won’t hear this as your head is up your ass…but I’m saying it anyway because as you mentioned…TODAY you are PREGNANT. That’s all you can really go by…a day at a time.

    I’m not gonna do the MeMe, but hey…do what you want with the pregnancy. No need for flashy things if you don’t want. *hugs*

    Belated congratulations – I hope good things for this for you.

    And white carpets? Blech. Though they do always remind us of the Producers: “white, white, white is the color of our carpets”.

    I love blogging for the same reason. I am here, alone, so-to-speak all day long and get lonely darnit!

    I am an uninspired cook too. Hamburger helper tonight! I don’t mind doing it, if someone else could just lay out the plan first and clean up the mess. (what? is that too much to ask?)

    Ooh you and I are so alike. I have a massive phobia of vomit. I think it comes from being violently ill when I was about 4 yrs old and having to go on a strict diet for years while my stomach repaired itself. The last time I threw up I was 11…and no, I’m not counting the cinco de mayo where I ate mexican food, drank 1/2 bottle of vodka, 1/2 bottle of tequila and went to my flamenco class completely wasted, came back to the party, and continued to drink…threw up, and woke up in my own bed (how’d I get there?) wearing someone elses shoes…and with three (?) umbrellas 😉

    Oh, and I hate to cook and am a kickass baker. Wanna be my soulmate?

    Peeve: finger/toenails that aren’t disposed of
    SITC: waiting for video
    Crappy Song: Anything by Erasure
    Gag: Not much, I woulda been a good doc.
    Least Favorite: cleaning bathrooms; having to wake up before 6 on purpose.
    Blogging: ditto, meeting other people. Oddly, sometimes I enjoy commenting more than writing — I like that other people make me think about things I wouldn’t have otherwise.

    I’m playing catch-up from a wicked long weekend (I know, it’s Tuesday now). Hope you’re well.

    Congratulations and good thoughts!

    Wait.. chocolate exchange? What is this wonderful thing you speak of? People send you chocolate!

    Thanks for stopping by and it’s not weird because I like the way you think too (especially since you think that of me!)
