Am I the only one that thinks Mother Nature is developing some kind of personality disorder. One days its cold and yucky the next day its nice and sunny. I wish she'd make up her mind already, though I am enjoying the nice springy temps.

News like this, is not what I want to read in the paper. If not for a complicated twist of fate, I could have been in that store. I get my 'scrpts at that pharmacy, I am at that store almost everyday. I know several of the employees. This is the kind of thing that is supposed to happen in New York or Chicago, not in little old West Fargo. Nobody was hurt, but man, it is still scary as hell.

It's so gorgeous out, I don't even want to be in here, but I have a shitload of laundry and dishes that are telling me otherwise. I did get out earlier though. Warren and I went to see Pan's Labrynth. I loved it, it was a great movie, if not one with a rather bittersweet and kind of depressing ending. I think Warren would have liked it better, had it not been in Spanish with English subtittles. I didn't know that, for some reason, though I should have. Its rather graphic, and kind of arty. Nothing over graphic, but alot is implied and its definately not a movie for the young or easily scared. Its a great allegory on the evils of blindly following orders of the powers in charge and of the battle between innocence and evil, using the fantasy world as an allegory for the evil of the real world {its set during Franscisco's "clean up" right after the Spanish Civil War, while WWII was still raging throughout the rest of Europe. It can best be described as a graphic, r-rated version of Alice in Wonderland, but a lot more intelligent and without a happily ever after ending. The girl who played the lead is one of the best child actors I've seen in a long time. The man who played her evil, stepfather [the man could give Darth Sideious lessons in cruelty], was also suburb. The Special effects are beyond anythign I"ve seen in a long long time. I'm a lousy movie reviewer, just go see it yourself, but I wouldn't take anyone under 13. I would have probably liked it even more, were my Spanish not limited to 12 or so words, as I'm sure more than a few things didnt' translate well to English. {Do the spanish even have a word for Fuck??}

Warren is spending more time at home this week, since Frank and Jesse's dad is in the hospital. I'm not sure what the full story is, Apparently something about a bad bloody nose and an ambulence, but clearly there is more to it than that, fortunately it is none of my business.

I did learn a valuable lesson this week. Several thousand years of Catholic and Jewish mothers have been right. Guilt really is a mother's best weapon. Warren was pitching a major fit after I chucked a bunch of confiscated porn, and I ws already in a blue mood that matches my blog background. I was sick and tired of everything so I said fuck it and went to take a long bath. Warren decided he could get his way by throwing a 13 year olds version of a temper tantrum and messing up my stuff and taking my tv hostage. At that point I had had enough. I just went to bed and totally ignored everything. With in ten minutes, not even Warren opened the door, before I knew it the stuff was picked up and the tv was back. Followed by my son offering to give me a hug, and an appology. SCORE.. Mom one, boy zero. He hasnt' mentiioned his porn since. Normally I would have went to his room with both guns blazing and we would have went five rounds with nothing accomplished. I guess silence really can be defening.

Now if I can just stop obessing about my weight and my blood pressure. I need to go eat a sandwich or something. I seem to be developing some scary anorexic tendencies. Relax. I am still eating healthy, and not starving myself, however the desire to not eat is definately there.

Screw teh laundry. I have tommorrow. After Scrubs [dvd}, I may go for a bike ride. With this weather, we could have a blizzard n a day or two. Too Tall tom lied, its was supposed to be cold and in the teens to day. It seems to be closer to 40 than to 14. Not that I'm complaining. We even have the windows open.

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.
