The Spam Thread!
One of the most touching moments of my life happened yesterday.

Some type of attack seemed to be coming on. I gaped for air just in case. The moment passed, and nothing had happened. My children were all in the room with me. Twelve legs backed away in concern.

"I'm fine."

All together, twelve legs ran toward me and... tripped forwards over themselves in the same way that I trip. They then continued running, into my open arms. I am so very loved and they are so very mine! ♡

I have been crying happy tears on and off for almost a full day now.

A few hours after this passed, I thought to myself, "I think I have a loyal army! A clumsy army!" Confusedhock:

It overwhelms me with surprise to know people love me so much. I think it will always surprise me into tears. Why me? Why love me? While I don't want to be hated, I don't expect to be loved!

You're not the only one. Though I've given up on SSC. Now it's ponies.

My copy of Growing Up Dreams is on it's way here tho.

Submitted a bug to WineHQ a few days ago; I hope they'll be able to fix that ASAP.

Potential Problem Birthdays Near Due Date

29 February: Maybe they would love to be born on Leap Year Day. Maybe they would hate it, only having a real birthday once every four years. The paperwork would be a mess either way.

11 March: If they share a birthday with their cousin, fighting over the day could be inevitable... says the woman who has three children celebrating a birthday on the same day. Yes, on the other hand, they could consider themselves honorary triplets (with a one-year age gap between the older one and younger two).

17 March: They probably would not appreciate a bunch of leprechaun jokes, born on Saint Patrick's Day. This would be especially annoying if either or both grow to be short, and perhaps also more annoying if either particularly take after James' Irish features. (Then again, leprechauns don't resemble Irish looks.)

So many things to do, so little time.

I want an apology from the guy who wrote the goddamn nothing lasts forever song. It ruined my life.

Just a guess here: I am guessing that the episode of PB & J Otter had a happy ending!

As to the silliness involving that song and the song itself, how could any of that possibly ruin your life?

PB & J Otter was another one of those shows that we hardly ever saw. When your television only gets local channels from whatever part of the country you're in, and you're scraping for money and can't afford cable anyway, you only access cable shows in motels. From what I saw, I did particularly like the Cranes and the Snooty family. While I wouldn't like to deal with the Snooty family much in real life, they could be hilarious and their neighbors' reactions to them were hilarious.

Connie Crane: "I just had a nice dream."
Cap'n Crane: (looking from his watchtower) "A giant inflatable frog at the Snooty's house!"
Connie Crane: "Well, no. I said a nice dream."

Connie reminded me of myself and still does.

Flick Duck who was so obviously an expy of Roger from Nickelodeon and Disney's Doug, as the shows were made by the same people, was just plain irritating. He wasn't a funny type* of irritating. He was just irritating. He was supposed to be the resident Peppermint Fizz. He couldn't manage the role as well as Peppermint could, at least not from the little that I saw.

* The one episode Ben happened to see had a running joke with Mr. Snooty continually calling a store to ask for crazy things, which Ben thought was very funny and I know exactly why. Ben could relate to both sides of that scenario. When we came back to the channel later, Bear in the Big Blue House popped up and sniffed us. Ben said that was one of the scariest things he'd ever seen, and switched the channel.


In other news, this time around, I am one of those lucky women whose skin and hair look better than usual in pregnancy. Sometimes, this is a fortunate side effect. On the other hand, poor James' skin and hair are looking worse. He has a permanent inflammatory skin disease that has bothered him for most of his life. Even though it only shows on his back, he's convinced it's absolutely terrible. He needs my lucky side effect more than I do. I sure would give it to him if I could.

No, it had a bittersweet ending. They just decide to build another one.

The song started looping in my head again when I found out that Hasbro lied to me by (lying to my aunt) and that MLP:FIM will not be appearing on Malaysian terrestrial TV this month. Considering how Boomerang may be starting Season 2 on the 17th in line with The Hub in the US and I will be unable to watch it for various reasons (including the stupid internet censorship).

You know that you have drawn with stylus on tablet too much when you make a mistake in drawing with pencil on paper and the first thing coming to mind is Ctrl + Z instead of an eraser.

That's what happened to me today.
