What thaaaaa...?

Adele's homework? WATCH T.V. FOR 30 MINUTES. Sure, they're supposed to watch the Olympics, but WHEN did watching t.v. qualify as HOMEWORK???? *screams* She got rid of all that immediately Friday. And subsequently made me feel like a dumbace. Hahahah.

Adele: Which would you watch, if you could see any segment of the Olympics?

Me: Hmm...ice skating!! Yeah!

Adele: MOM. THESE ARE THE SUMMER OLYMPICS.

*blink*

I don't watch T.V. nor do I, or have I ever, followed the Olympics so THERE.



So much to do today, and broken-up time to do it. Adele's going to visit her grandmom today, but is coming back here. We're going to get some school stuff as soon as the stores open (is it just Alabama, or do ALL states have to wait until noon on Sunday?!).

My friend's list entries are mind-boggling. Suddenly, everyone has a deep thought (or five) and I'm all staring, drooling on my keyboard wondering if they want/need comments, orrrrrrr what? And whyyyy o whyyy did they up and get prolific today? LOL. I spent a good hour reading them this morning when typically, it only takes 10-15 minutes. Weee. You guys are gettin' too serious for moi or something. I've read about politics, religion, abuse...all the serious things that we often don't write about for fear of some idiot flaming our journal (well, not without putting it in a locked entry). And there were so many, I didn't really know what to do, say or how to feel; so I simply didn't comment. I suppose they -- like I often do -- were thinking through their issues. Not soliciting comments. Maybe. Hm.

Not getting anything accomplished by being here. Sooooo we're off.

That is all. Carry on.

Wow, I didn't think about the fact that ice skating wouldn't be part of the summer olympics! haha I LOVE ice skating; it's my favorite sport to watch. I was so anticipating it. Now, darn it, I have to wait....

I know that I rarely write anything deep, but when I write something really personal, it's just thinking through stuff. I was born without the part of my brain that knows what to private and what to keep public. (-; hehehe

I hope school supply shopping goes well. I MISS ALABAMA! I'm such a dork and have been listening to "Sweet Home..." haha

Have fun today!

I think there comes a time in all parents of bright children's lives when we suddenly realize -- uhhhh...they're a litttttle smarter than us...maybe. Or something. LOL.

Not just yours, but soooo many people have been thinking out loud that I don't know what to say (if anything at all). I tend to remain quiet when someone's all serious (out of respect for their grief? Or feelings? Not sure...). Sometimes, I'll feel compelled to throw a few words their way hoping to temporarily divert their attention (if it's REALLY bad). But I'm not so sure that's appropriate, either. I'm TOO MUCH LIKE A MAN!! HELPP.

And shopping for ANYTHING IS NEVER FUN1!!

*screams* :-D

It doesn't sound like the experience was too bad, but the comment about pink being the new red was priceless. hahaha I was never fashion savvy as a kid. It blows my mind. LOL!

My boyfriend's little sis (MAJOR age difference between them, I'm not robbing the cradle LOL!) was also assigned the Olympics, and she and I have phone conversations a lot (both my boyfriend and his sis are in Alabama now). She's only in fifth, and she was telling me how her homework was the Olympics, too. Are all schools doing that? I don't think I ever had homework that included TV! I was cheated! haha

I know what you mean about comments. It sometimes helps me to share my problems, but sometimes you just want to be left alone, even if you broadcast something to the world. LJ brings up tricky social ettiquette right/wrongs. haha

I don't get it :P Adele's not all THAT savvy (I mean, let's face it -- if I went to, say, California and spent a couple of hours on Rodeo Drive, I'D feel like a freak at this point), but she's real specific about what she likes. Thus the agonizing and holding things up over and over and over and... :D You get it.

Why is your bf in Alabama? Yikes! I had a fiance from L.A. Er...even though he'd travel whenever I wanted him to (I was in S.C. at the time), I finally ended it because I was tired of long-distance relationships and couldn't stand the thought of being stuck in L.A. Meh.

i just wanted to add that ice skating is the only sport I watch
:>

that's why I don't watch the summer olympics ;>

re: deep thoughts - I did mine public today (i normally find friends only to be my main choice for this sort or thing) but sometimes I feel compelled to make them public in case someone who might be feeling the same way and think they are alone in feeling like that is going through random journals and comes across my entry and doesn't feel as alone anymore.

Yeah, I'm fucked ;>

Me, too (re: ice skating :D). You weren't the only one; I'm telling ya MANY on my list were waxing poetic/prophetic/prolific (and all those other P words). :) I usually keep the deep dark stuff private.

Re: i just wanted to add that ice skating is the only sport I watch
I looked a bit at your friends list and left a comment for curefreak on the most recent post that allowed comment.

I guess I'm feeling all out of it, I have for the past wk or so, but the more I think or talk about it, the worse I seem to feel...

Re: i just wanted to add that ice skating is the only sport I watch
Most of my friends are friend's only. We're the few...the proud. LOL :)

I'm like you; I don't 'share' when I'm feeling bad because it DOES perpetuate it. Friends will often try to make me talk about it, etc. etc. and THAT only serves to anger me. Yeah. Vicious cycle.

Re: i just wanted to add that ice skating is the only sport I watch
I go either way, sometimes I share, but I don't want/expect comments and sometimes I share because I do wnat comments. ANd sometimes I share and don't know what I want and sometimes I share more after-the-fact...

g'night!

I wonder if my somewhat recent post was one of the "deep" ones you were referring to...I'll do one of those every so often, just to get something off my chest. Like all stuff in my journal, comment if you feel you want to, but I don't actively "solicit" comments. If I do want everyone's opinion, I will say so up front. But I do enjoy engaging people when they do want to discuss posts like that...it's issues that NEED to be talked about, that many people gloss over. If folks want to flame me for makin' 'em think, that's their prerogative. If folks want to discuss further, that's cool. *shrugs shoulders with hands airborne* As they say in New Yawk, "whahtevah." :-)

And I prefer the Winter Olympics myself. Go Jamaican Bobsled Team!!! :-P

I do remember you had a REAL LENGTHY one and did my speed-reading thing, picking up on keywords. I'm the same about commenting. If too many subjects are brought up, I give up. LOL.

No, on this day (as I remember it) SO MANY had made TONS of friend's only entries questioning everything from the meaning to life to how they were gonna get laid (if ever again). LOL. :-D

Re: Lonnnnnnnng
Yeah, I get days like that sometimes...which is why it takes me FOREVER to catch up my friends page when I haven't been on in a while...
But I ALWAYS read, even if I don't comment.

Re: Lonnnnnnnng
Me, too. I do, however, read as fast as I write. Thus...LOL! :-D And I'm the same way. No commenting unless something sticks out that I feel compelled to comment on. :) Some I have more in common with than others, or others, we have FUN commenting. Weirdness. :)

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.
