Because I am a very lazy person right now, I have decided instead of trying to find some new place to put my pictures I am just going to email the link. I created a Google Group, so I can also share more personal information on a different blog and control access, as there are somethings I really don't want to share with the entire web world. If you would like to join go ahead and sign up, I believe the invite requires you to identify yourself if the email doesn't make it obvious who you are.

Speaking of good news {okay not really, but it makes a good segway}, I think this might actually be a good week to buy lottery tickets. The Idiot is behaving himself, I have a decent amount of money in the bank, and best of all, not only does Warren seem to be doing well, he actually made Student of the Week at his school this week. I am so proud of him. Maybe now I'll stop feeling like I am waiting for the other shoe to crash on my head. I am sure he won it as most improved {in behavior if not academics, where he is good already}. I am so happy for him.

It is seriously freezing here again. Looks like after one "warm" day of highs in the teens/low twenties we are back to the -temps again. We are definately having a white Christmas. As long as it doesn't turn into another 96/97 {winter from beyond hell, that whole year was pure unadalterated hell and I don't just mean the weather}, I will be fine.

Since I have nothing else to write, I leave you with 10 odd random bits of Cranky Trivia.

  1. I walked on my toes until I was 7, almost 8.
  2. I can't stand to walk around naked even with the blinds down and the door locked I still have to have a towel or robe on, or I feel well naked..
  3. I have broken my toe, ankle, wrist and finger all on my left side. Leaving my right side much stronger and more flexible
  4. When I was really little I wanted to be a gymnast, but there was no one for me to take lessons or training from.
  5. When I was a bit older I wanted to be an astronaut. Obviously that didn't work out.
  6. I can reverse curl until my toes are on the floor behind my head, but when I try to sit on my knees my knees hurt.
  7. When I was in middle school/high school I used to have several pen pals from around the US, but I haven't talked to any of them in 20 years.
  8. I absolutely can't stand the taste or smell of bananas, but when they are baked into something like bread or pancakes {or even in smoothies if there is a small amount and they are hidden behind other flavors}, I will eat them and like them.
  9. Many of my current favorite foods are food I refused to eat as a child. {eggs, saurkraut, watermelon, etc..}
  10. Movie violence {ie action movies, things that only happen in movie world} don't bother me at all, but movies with violence of a real world nature {such as Dead Man Walking, The Passion, a few others}, I can't watch. I just can't handle it.

    Tommorrow should be a fun adn busy day. I need to vaccuum, clean out the fridge, buy groceries, hit two libraries, and go to NDSU to buy my mom's Xmas gift, figure out what to send my brother and my Aunt's family and also get some gym time in.

    I'm waiting until I get my Xmas bonus before I decide what to get Warren. He's easy for me to shop for, I'm just not sure what I can afford to spend, on Arnold Swchartzen-juinor. I have an idea of what I want to get, I just hope I can.

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.
