Funny thing with flamers, if you don't play the game they want they run away scared. Where's the fun in that. Either that or Justin's inflate-a-date came back from the porno repair shop. i guess it just isn't fun to flame somebody who deletes your posts and traces your IP number back to your school.

Sometimes my son and I have conversations that leave me just scratching my head or staring ahead with my chin on my shoes. Witness the following exchanges this week.

Me:(after giving my son kudos for a great job cleaning the living room.)Why is there a root beer in the box of toys.
Warren Well its wasn't empty so I didn't want to throw it away. (it was unopened)
MeAnd the fridge is not an option because??
WarrenThe toy box was closer.

Then today, while I was making supper Warren was watching toons, and one of those commercials for some anti-depressant or other came on..
WarrenMom, why do depression meds always have sexual side effects. (Where the puberty is on the way, did that come from)
Meummm.. I don't know.. I guess its just one of the side effects of anti-depressants in some people..
WarrenOh..I was just wondering. I'm to young to shoot anyway.
Insert mom with bewildered look and wide open mouth.. I didn't know what to say after that one. Something tells me that puberty is comming wether I am ready for it or not. But the kid is funny.

In a total change of subject, allow me to address a minor pet peeve of mine that has grown in annoyance since I have been working in Vitamin Hell. Natural does not mean safer or with out side effects. It doesn't mean it is better, in many cases it doesn't mean bird shit. Alchohol, opium, botulism, e. coli, marijuana, and many other very dangerous things are technically "all natural". I get so many people at work, oh well its all natural or its just a herb it can't hurt you. Wanna bet. Botanically speaking Marijuana can be classified as a herb, so could opium. So could some of the very deadliest poisons, just ask Socrates. That doesn't mean natural is bad, it just means use some common sense people. Many pharacuteacals have a natural or herbal base or beginning. Antibiotics come from molds and other natural substancess. Its more complicated than what I have let on, but please think people, just because it is over the counter and doesn't need a doctor, doesn't mean you can just pop it like candy. Some of the herbs we sell will make you sick, some are weaker variations of items that are made as prescriptions, some will interact with other items. For example if you are on coumadin, taking Ginkgo or flax is a very bad idea. If you have ragweed allegies Goldenseal with make things worse not better. I could go on, but I think I have made my point. Too bad many of our customers think they need $500 worth of pills to try and be immortal or something. The human body was not designed to live forever, sooner or later, sadly things will break down.

A spirit will go on forever, but a physical body has a finite existance. Deal with it. That doesn't mean curl up in a corner and wait to die. It means taking care of your self, but not constantly looking for the nexct miracle in a bottle.It means enjoying here and now. Take joy in what you have right now, not what may or may not come down the road.

It means eat right, get off your butt and move, see a dr. once in a while, and expect a little discomfort now an then (it means you are still alive) If something tragic happens, fight like hell as long as you can, but realize there maybe a point at which it may be better to die with your dignity, than to live a life you can no longer take any joy from.

I leave with this thought, I have a son who loves green beans so much he actually requests them, (when they are on sale I buy a whole flat) and the other night said my cookies were good, but he would like them better if they were less chocolately. (I made Toll House cookies from the recipe on the bag). Go figure

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
