My x once didn't bother getting me an anniversary present until after the fact. Claimed he didn't have time. Excuse me, he spent his day driving around town to appts he had set up. Like he couldn't have done it while out. After all, it was on Valentine's Day. How do you forget that. I still remember what he got me once he got around to it.....a betamax copy of "Romancing the Stone'.

So, the wedding is still on?

When are you sending me the airline tickets?

Almost sounds like you got a copy of your own autobiography, doesn't it? <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

I'm really short this month. And I don't have much money, either. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> I'm afraid you'll have to hitch hike. It's only about 2,500 miles!! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

Only in December, short you are?

AD, in this day of modern technology, you don't need airline tickets. Just fax yourself here! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Life may feel as if you are constantly getting kicked on a daily basis, living is about picking yourself up each day and going on and on and on regardless.

Why are you afraid of that?

OK, here goes! I've got my bag packed.

Thumbs up!

(Maybe Neak will stop and give me a ride. Where's she driving this week?)

Love those songs - now they're going to be stuck in my head ALL DAY LONG!!!

Oh my! I'm in Toledo now. I thought the driver said he was going to Laredo.

I fell asleep and the next thing I knew, he was on my side of the truck with the door open, pulling me out of the truck. "You get out here", he said. There was a young woman standing nearby smoking nervously. As I stumbled toward the truck stop, she got in, and off they rolled into the night.

I had to pay $10 to get online.

I'd better go find a place to sleep.

Better stay in Toledo, lol. AJ found out this afternoon that he is going from UT to WA instead. Or did you mean a different Toledo? <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

You would write a great IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT novel. I can't wait to hear the next installment. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Hmmm.. Well, I thought it was Toledo, Ohio, but... Now I'm not sure. I had to ask where I am once already, so I don't want to ask again - draws too much unwanted attention. OK, there's three guys in here with Ohio State shirts on. It must be Ohio... But, wait a minute... There's a lady with a Seattle Mariner's jacket. Hmmm. 3 to 1 I'm in Ohio. I'm sure I couldn't sleep any farther than that.

I've got to get off now.

What a relief. Still a long ways away! We're going to need sufficient warning before he arrives so that all that reconstructive work Neaksis needs can be completed before he gets here. Too bad we don't wear veils in our family. It'd save a LOT of work, and he wouldn't find out anything depressing until it was too late. The eyes are nice, after all! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Ga-a-a-a-a-a-a-ah! Oh! Hi, Neaksis. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" /> What are you doing here? And why didn't you make more noise on your way? <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" />

Funny......I thought the rest of her was fine, and her eyes, with their crazed look, the only part that might be considered off-putting.

<img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

She's asleep on my bed, so I have till morning to find a safe hiding place.

Odd you should say that. With only the eyes showing, that special sparkle could simply be interpreted as interest and a hint of intrigue, don't you think? <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> In my opinion, and for what it's worth, the psychosis is not immediately apparent. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

And you're right--you'd better be finding a safe place to sleep before she logs on in the morning. When I get home, I'm locking my doors before I go to sleep. For some reason, 16 miles doesn't feel like enough of a buffer right now. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/eek.gif" alt="" /> Probably sleep with one eye open, too. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/pfft.gif" alt="" />

t&l

P.S. Go to bed. You're going to hate yourself in the morning. And don't let her fix you breakfast! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Bet that one eye will have a 'special sparkle' in it, too. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I just saw the poll. Don't forget to vote - AD is counting on all of us to guide him.

wait till I dob you all in to Neaksis!! ahahaha

Fed the family, Mikey is sound asleep, DD is quietly studying, DS is doing man things ... watching sport on TV with a beer in his hand. Wonder where he got that from? <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

Me ,,,I'm off to a young mums house to help her with a new baby who just crirs, and cries .... and cries ... and cries
..nothing wrong apaprently just one of THOSE babies according to the male specialist.
I suspect from my observations that some old biddy told her that young babies are spoiled by being picked up when crying.
Load of crock. Don't think young mum has slept for 2 days.

Poor kids (babies mum) mum is way over in the East, like living in LA and mum is in Boston, and she has no one over here but her H in Aussies unit. Got creams and oils and dummy and .. well EVERYTHING!!

TL I may call for help <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" /> or earplugs anyway <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/pfft.gif" alt="" /> bye for now <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/eek.gif" alt="" />
