Battle Me!!!

Another boring long weekend. Despite having no homework and being trapped inside because of the rain, Warren didn't manage to get any of his chores done, I guess he was afraid they would interfer with his Cartoon Network marathon. We did rent movies last night, and I finally got to see Pitch Black.

What this has to do with Chronicles of Riddick, aside from Vin Diesel's character is beyond me. It wasnt' a bad movie, and the gore was rather understated if you ask me, the only reason I can think of for its R rating is Vin Diesels lack of vocabularial alternatives for the F-word. There were some cool effects, but of course they still had the stupid horror movie character, who goes exactly where everyone knows he shouldn't. There were a few plot holes I won't go into, but basically its not a bad movie if you like watching Predator meets The Birds, meets Alien - minus Sigourney in her underwear. Although watching a half dressed Vin Diesel half dressed, blindfolded and tied to a post did give me some intersting ideas if I ever want to start dating again.

OF course Warren lately being a huge Vin Diesel fan (apparently blowing shit up, and driving cliffs off bridges appeals to 11 year old boys as much as it does to the freaky geeky moms), means we had to get XXX (Triple X, for the Uninitiated), I guess he could do worse. Its not exactly who I'd pick for him, but I can live with it.

I've also started plans for his 11th birthday. With Mike being away and money being tight, we settled on a pool party. We can rent a room at Sunset fairly cheap and then he can have up to 5 or 6 friends over to use the pool with out us having to pay extra. They have a huge waterslide adn a room near the pool we can use. I just have to make the invites up, get him to deliver them in advance, make reservations, get a cake, figure out what if anythign to do for food and so forth, make sure all the arrangements are straight with the motel, invest in some tranquelizers (6 adolescent males- what kind of masochist am I?) and hope it all goes well. Should be an intersting month. My baby boy is gong to be 11. Where did the time go. One minute I have him sleeping safe in a Snuggli and the next minute he's standing up looking me in the eye and trying to bargain his way out of doing the dishes.

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.
