Sometimes you have to learn the hard way

Things I've learned the hard way

1, popcorn and garbage disposales don't mix.

2.Spinning the living room chandelier around in attempt to make it like a disco ball, is a really bad idea. When it falls down and almost kills you, your father will be really angry. (hey I was 9)

3.No matter how fascinated cats may find water, they really really really hate getting wet.

4. If you live with any males in the house, never use the toilet in the dark with out checking the seat first.

5. Using your moms serrated scissors to trim your bangs will not give you a cool fringe, but it will make your mom trim your hair so you look goofy for 6 weeks.

6. Likewise with twirling your hair arounds your fathers little black comb.

7. Eating too many frozen blueberries can make ones fingers turn the same shade of blue as someone who is having serious oxygen issues.

8. Never sleep with gum in your mouth.. See 5 and 6 above. (is it any wonder I am so hung up on my hair.).

9. Thumbtacks in barefeet hurt like a mofo!

10. Always read the recipe twice before you start.

11. If somebody creeps you out, trust your instincts, they are telling you this for a reason.

12. Moonboots suck, especially if you call in them.

13. Calories eaten in secret still count

14. When doctors say this may hurt a little, odds are they are lying.. It will hurt a LOT!!

15. If your son is in his room and you can't hear anything, check on him STAT. odds are there is an emergency you should be aware of, but aren't.

16.Little kittens have very sharp claws.

17. When crawling under an elecrric fence one should always make sure not to stand up too quickly..

18, Just cause it looks bright and sunny don't mean its warm.

19. Asking your mom what the meaning of certain words can get you in a lot of trouble if you aren't careful, even if they are words you just heard your father use because the widget would fit on the thingamajig (I was quite the intersting child).

20. Rocking chairs make lousy step stools. (I have the xrays in my medical file to prove it).

Anybody else??

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.
