Finished painting, and FINALLY grasped the whole print-your-book-through-Lulu thing.

Right now, I'm keeping the first book to myself. I broke it down into seven books. Only one year had to be split into two 400+ page books. I LOVE THEM. It's so different, seeing them in print than it is in here. Very strange, but oddly interesting. The first year, I only had an account for a few months; so my first book is a tiny, 110 page job, titled "I love you...now give me back my clothes" (don't ask...it's a subject, and so...). :> Love and murder. Two best-selling words to go on a book jacket. Ask the pros.

Anyway, I'm ordering my copy to proof, which will cost DUM DUM DUMMMMMMMMM...$5. That's it. That's ALL it takes to pay for your own paperback book. Can't beat it with a stick and two baseball bats, iffn you ask me. Through the years -- I noticed while traveling through quickly with an eye open for anything horrifying -- I've written some fairly decent stuff. Not consistently, not always, but on occasion. Some of it is witty, even. Reading through it is exactly like living my life is, only in word. I do ramble and carry on as if the conversation is going on in my head. I've pretty much done this since the beginning of the journal. I think I was more clever before 2003. But I'll be SO happy to cradle a hard cover in my hands, and read through some of the most bizarre years of my life.

It's just like that. I highly encourage everyone to do it. Download that thang, print it off, and have a copy. Save it for your kids.

Okay, I'm delirious and shouldn't be allowed NEAR a computer. Z just called and he made me an easel (awwwwwww!). That was really sweet of him, to take that type initiative. Didn't just buy a cheap one...made it with his own hands and wood. Really sweet gesture. I'll be asleep when he drops it off.

Poor Z.

Poor me.

I'm nappin'. The girls are segregating and that's just fine. I need some serious ZzZzzzz (me) time.

I wish I never had to sleep - there's so many other things I'd rather be doing...

Ha! I succumb to all those weaknesses, and then, no sleep. That'll teach me. ;p

I know! But that one was small. The largest ones will cost me around $15.

Mine, or your own? LOL :) Allow me to recommend the "best reading year" to ya, just cuz. You should do your own, though. I love reading my journal. It takes me back to that time and place, and reminds me that when I want to, I can really write. :)

Downloading the pdfs will be an option, also. But the whole point is to take it OUT of the computer! :)

I love you...now give me back my clothes

sounds like you have a potential greeting card there, sez i love you on the front, and then you open it to read the rest of the message...

right up there with "i love you... now will you please release my family?"

YOU should be honored, imho. ;-)

I was just scrolling through its table of contents (which I actually chose NOT to include, but it decided otherwise), and that was one of my subject titles. Boom. Book title, too. Pretty much screams "me" all over it. lol :)

Where've you been? Gahhhhhhhhhhhhh.

yeah, i invite anyone who thinks school isn't work to sit in on my "histoly of the engrish rangurage" class. stuff is hard.

Hahaha. Youl engrish is wundelbal :> :D ROR. :)

I know. I look at the spawn's school as her "job", which is why I'm not so "heavy" on her at home. She's pulling in a perfect GPA; so that's that. Still, she'll do things to help. This weekend is a good example. ;p

I'm tired from getting NO sleep. Gotta make up for that before tomorrow morning. Yikes.

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
