    Wow, I can't believe how popular e-bay is. I've never bought or sold anything on it. I guess I'm really archaeic. I go to the store. Maybe I should check it out.

    Follow advice on clean litter boxes. Also get the kitten used to being brushed or combed daily. Then when he is bigger, there will be less shedding. Buy husband benedryl for allergies. Slip them into his coffee. Tell husband the kitten will bring positive energy into the house and you will be more likely to win the lottery now. Threaten to buy "another" kitty if this little one causes too much trouble.......and then do it anyway, so your kitty isn't lonely. Tell husband it's cooler to sleep in the garage. Pitch a tent in the backyard and tell husband the fresh air will make him feel much better and less stuffy from his allergies. Instruct kitten to curl up and purr on husband every chance he gets. Tell husband the kitten really needs HIM. Suggest that if husband doesn't like the kitty, husband doesn't get any pxxxx...Oh, nevermind If all fails, contact Unk, and meet at the Dairy Queen on highway to adopt said kitty. Sorry, just could not resist.

    Oh, that sounds sooooooooo cute! You can never throw that away!

    You know, it's not like I never lie (ahem), but I just think it's just bad karma to say someone you love had a heart attack when they didn't etc. I don't honestly believe that me thinking it would cause someone to have a heart attack, but I just couldn't say something like that with good conscious. It's bad juju! What a bunch of weirdos there are walking amongst us...

    Thanks I needed the laugh today. Yeah, it's so lost, it will never be found!!!
    And I am not offended. Rarely am as I poke fun at myself all the time and love that kind of humor, so fire away!

    I don't think this is a good thing to do either. Back when my daughter was very small, I hated to offend people and several times used the excuse that my baby was sick to get out of doing something instead of just telling them no and don't you know that she ALWAYS got sick after I had told that "little white lie". So no more, I have learned my lesson and I have learned to say no.

    How to embarrass a teenager in 2 easy minutes!!!

    It rained ALL day today. I had to drive out of town in it and I hate that. We barely get home and decide that we MUST go see Pirates of the Carribean. So we Fandango our tickets knowing it will be crowded. That was the understatement of the year. In a theater with 16 screens, they are showing this on 4 and everyone is sold out, but we managed to snag tickets online.

    It was raining when we went, so I took my umbrella. It used to be my dads and its one of those huge, black ones that is almost as big as a golf umbrella.

    As we came out of the movie (2 1/2 hours) it wasn't raining and I had the umbrella all closed up. Well having just watched 2 1/2 hours of the love of my life (he just hasn't realized it yet), Johnny Depp and all the sword fighting, I started
    jousting with the umbrella and poking my daughter and husband in the butt with it. I sword fought all the way to the car with my daughter hissing at me: MOM!!! You are embarrassing me. Stop, this is so embarrassing. I can't believe you. I hope no one here knows me.

    I think I might actually take up fencing. It looks like fun. I realize its a lot of stamina, but good exercise too huh? And I'm pretty darn good with an umbrella so far, so maybe I have a future in it.

    And I acheived the ultimate in parental pleasure: embarrassing the child that used to embarrass me when she was 4 and would holler at the top of her lungs in a nice restaurant: I HAVE TO GO POOP!!!!!

    I've got my hands full with my two. On the other hand, who could resist that warm Vegas sunshine and the lure of the casinos?

    myrosiedog. That's something I might do, the umbrella-fencing! But I think you're being too hard on your daughter at 4yrs old. At least she WARNED you she had to GO. As long as she doesn't do that any more, then I think you've done a marvelous job!

    Believe it or not, she got in the car after the movie and announced to us: I have to poop.

    So things haven't really changed in 11 years, she just doesn't announce it to strangers anymore.

    Well, so far so good. Elliott has been here for 24 hours and has not tick off the husband yet. He caught a mouse and I think that score some points.

    Thanks for all the advice!

    Went to see that Pirate movie - was not impressed. I think it might have been a) too long and/or b)all those sci-fi looking characters. I think the first movie was wayy better.

    Aw, you named him! What a cute kitten name. Hey--he's not only adorable, but he's earning his keep. How can your husband not like him now? Does he really hate cats or does he just hate the idea of cats? It's funny how many dog lovers say they hate cats and vice versa. I actually am more of a dog gal myself, but cats are pretty darned cute (and warm in the winter time).

    I haven't seen the new Pirates movie yet but since I like Johnny Depp, I may have to. Like you, I didn't love the first one--I really enjoyed the first half and then I thought it dragged on for too long. But every scene that Jack Sparrow was in was fantastic!

    myrosiedog, good job on embarassing the kid! I was laughing so hard! FYI, I used to fence in school and I was quite good at it and LOVED it. If keeps you in great shape and is a great sport. Keep us filled in if you do decide to take a few classes.

    I've always thought it would be fun to fence.

    I'd like to take lessons in that and take lessons in billiards. I used to be a decent pool player, but over the years have lost my touch as I don't play anymore. One thing my husband and I both want is a pool table.

    I need to be independently wealthy so I can not work, not clean and take fencing, pool and ballroom dancing lessons.


    I happened to like this Pirates better than the first. But my husband and daughter didn't. Granted the skeletons of the last movie were pretty cool, but I thought the

    sea monsters
    in this one were even better and the fencing scene on the island near the end is one of the funniest bits I've ever seen (I doubt its much of a spoiler that they fence in this one so hope I haven't ruined that for anyone).
    Without giving too much away, I think
    Click to see Spoiler:
    the ending was what colors how most people view the entire movie.


    But as I seriously love Johnny Depp and Pirates was always my favorite ride at Disney, there is not much that they could have done in either movie to really screw it up for me. It was long. Go to the bathroom before you go in the theater.
