Ugh, Chris Brown is on the Today show. Why am I even watching this horrible misogynistic man boy?

Mia's ninth birthday was last week-end and her two BFFs, Onievea and Tajana spent the night. They had great fun, and this year, no one cried even once. Last year, we had six girls and everyone cried at least once. They are all three such great little girls. I'm glad Mia has such good friends. She's struggled a bit in this neighborhood, mostly because she goes to a different school, since she's in the Horizons program. She doesn't ride the bus with them, so she hasn't had much of a chance to get to know them. She plays with the girls that live behind us a bit, but they are strange, nearly feral children.

I'm a true crime buff and I just have to ask, What's up with the cannibalism lately? Disturbing trend, and unlike other psychological aspects of crime, that's one I just have zero interest in. I can no longer read crimes about children, haven't been able to for a while, and cannibalism is vying for the top of the list now.

Last summer, we adopted a shiz tsu. She was in bad shape when we got her; worms, fleas, obviously shaved with someone's beard trimmer. I'm pretty sure the young couple we adopted her from used that money to immediately go buy a bag of meth. Molly has progressed very well, though, and she's a sweet dog. She was supposed to be either mine or Mia's, but she's definitely Martin's dog. Who could have guessed, Martin has a shiz tsu.

Hey Kids

Nearly two years since I have written anything on this. I'm still alive and kicking. So much has changed and yet so much has remained the same. We bought a house. We love it, but it needs cosmetic work. Lots of cosmetic work. TW a.k.a. DC a.k.a. my MIL lives with us. Every day is a new adventure. I got fired twice in a row. I apparently am no longer capable of holding a job. I love Downton Abbey even though the Brits in my everyday life (I'm outnumbered these days) are annoying on purpose to which they would say, "Brilliant!" and view it as an achievment. I love Mad Men. And yes, yes, yes I will be the green eggs in Jon Hamm's ham. We adopted a wonderful little shih-tzhu named Molly. Total dog count: Three. Me = Crazy Dog Lady Mia is wonderful, Dexter is doing what he needs to be doing. I just wrote an impassioned five paragraph op-ed (?) essay (?) regarding the tea party in Indiana and how kooky they are and I had to take it down. I will, however, editorialize to say this: Remember the Schoolhouse Rock short films? I'm just a bill/on capitol hill, etc. Remember those? The most simple components of democracy. Watch those again. Think about them. You can do this because it appeals to your "intellect." ohhh, sort of sorry.
