My mom and I are going to start a business making baby-pacifiers that have moustaches on them. My mom thinks the target market will be "parents who are stupid." I think the target market will be "parents who are AWESOME!" No one steal our idea!...

'It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces'

My mom and I just watched Bridget Jones's Diary in preparation for the sequel, which comes out this weekend. When the movie was over, my mom set off to clean house. Inspired by the fact that Colin Firth/Mark Darcy/Mr Darcy is adorable and everything that is wonderful, I got out my homework and popped Pride and Prejudice into the DVD player. My mom wandered in with her dustcloth, saw the DVD menu, threw the dustcloth into the air and leapt into the recliner with a surprising agility for someone who's just had a total knee replacement. "What, you didn't want...

More machine than (wo)man: twisted and evil

My mom has now begun her three-month medical leave from work. With such a lengthy absence, I suggested that she tell everyone that she's leaving for surgery and that when she comes back in January, she'd like to be called Bruce. Unfortunately, she hasn't taken me up on it and has instead correctly informed them that her surgery tomorrow is a knee replacement (something genetic that I can probably look forward to in another thirty years or so). She's no fun, really....

How to make an embarassing situation worse: blog about it

Note to self: Verify that the person who answers the phone at your mother's desk is, indeed, your mother before you plaintively ask, "Mommmmmmmmmy?" Because otherwise it will be a classmate of yours. And the classmate and your mother and several other classmates/co-workers will undoubtedly have a good laugh at your expense....

The nerdding planner

(watching preview for a stupid show about some reality TV people getting married) Stupid TV bride: I want everything in the wedding to be pink! Stupid TV groom: She wants everything to be pink! I'm not getting married at some Strawberry Shortcake wedding. srah: What do you care? Why should you have any say? You're just an accessory, groom. That's why you leave the planning up to the bride's mother. So then you can get married in a nice ruffly shirt and you'll like it that way. srahmom: I promise, when you get married, I'll keep out of the planning....

'There was an Ingmar Bergman movie about me! I was played by David Carradine.'

Soon I will be the most popular girl at SI. I went to the Archives as Depicted on the Silver Screen presentation tonight with the hottest date of anyone there. My date is so popular in SI circles* that I'm hoping some of it will rub off on me. My date knew everso many people at the presentation and talked and chatted with all of them while I looked on with pride at being associated with such an individual. I was not too embarassed when my date shrieked and shuddered at scenes of misuse of archives in the movies. After...

Bring home my name/ on the wings of Gwaihir*

(listening to Neil Diamond as I get ready this morning) srah: I always want to sing this "Sar... Saruman" instead of "Soo... Soolaimon". (pause) srah: I am such a nerd. Mom: Well, from what I've heard, you're in good company at SI. srah: This is very true. Hopefully Return of the King will come out after all of our exams are done. Otherwise we're in trouble! Mom: Why's that? srah: Because no one will show up for class the next day! Mom: Oh. Well, that's okay. Your teachers probably won't either. ––––– * thanks to Mr B------ for the nerd-assistance...

More family anecdotes

Mom: Me, I can marry for love. But you, you have to marry for height. She has big ideas for the genetic future of this family. She hopes I'll find a basketball player. Dream on, Mummy. Really tall people creep me out, as does anyone shorter than me. I'm picky that way. Ideally, everyone around me should be within a few inches of the height that I am in my mind....

Nice mommy

Our refrigerator died yesterday. The new one should be delivered tomorrow. I wasn't sure if it was just the freezer or the whole refrigerator that died. "Can I get things out of the refrigerator?" I asked my mommy. "Sure," she replied. I began heading towards the fridge. "They just won't be any good." Well, that's helpful. :)...

Mystery solved! The banana bread was from Mommy via the Reimann express. I know you were all on the edge of your seat about that one....
