Thanks For Keeping Us Alive

I'm kind of selfish.

I don't want to share things.

I don't like being nice to people who annoy me.

I like sleep more than most things.

I love beautiful shoes and clothes more than sleep, though.

I have a temper.

People who manage to REALLY rile me (like to the point of The Silent Stare Angry) probably should watch their backs.

I don't like volunteering to help out. Unless it's finishing up some ice cream.

Housework is not my thing. Neither is laundry. Or really... anything that has to do with house stuff.

I like to point at people.

I drive too fast (or so I've been told).

Given the chance, I will *always* do something to make one or both of my siblings irritated... because it is the most fun thing to do in the world.

These are all good reasons why I'm not a mother. And while my own mom doesn't hate beautiful clothes and will occasionally bug one of my siblings (who could blame her when it's the most fun thing to do in the world?), she's put similar preferences aside to be a parent. She managed to corral me and keep me from pissing anyone off so badly as a child that someone strangled me. She force-fed me foods that made me grow really tall (wait...), and she convinced me to eat when I just wouldn't eat at all. And when problems came up that she couldn't fix, she gave me a hug and told me she loved me.

Thanks, Mom. Happy Mother's Day.

I wouldn't peg you as a pointer. Very interesting little fact!

Sharing sucks.

Sleep is awesome.

I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to be reproducing tiny bunnies right now, either.

Good thing, too.

Haha, fun post! Happy Mother's Day to your mom :) I thought of you on Saturday (in a non-weird way!) when I was at my sister's graduation. There was a lady watching who looked like you!

C-Pretty! I used to just have a little crush on you, but damn... After reading that list I now think I'm in L---L---LO--...

Nah, not gonna say it. Too "weird guy commenting on my blog"-ish.

OK, just kidding! Don't tell Wife Prince?

Anyway. Happy mom's day to your mom from us in NC.

Take care,


Oh, and as far as giving your siblings a hard time, remember it's all fun and games till someone strikes it rich. Make'em want to pay you!
