So prove me wrong.

Apart from writing, what interesting things have you done lately.

Ie. Bungee jumped, found a bargain at the two dollar shop, watched your child score a goal in the big game. You know what I mean.

Must be something else that keeps you ticking.

Are you really boring?

Well, I must have been doing SOMETHING interesting, because I just got a positive on a pregnancy test this morning. :D

He is excited and hopeful. We lost a baby about 2 years ago, and while this pretty much kills my chances for Beijing, we just really want a baby. He doesn't know about it yet (ugh, don't tell that I spilled to AW first!). He is in Atlanta being a temp manager at one of their Apple stores during tax free week. I sent him a text to call me, but he must be busy.

Wow. You must be so excited. I was overseas (I think) when I found out that my wife was pregnant with the first one. Been away for six months when she rang to say she was three months pregnant.

Robbie, okay what king of bug?

I took my seventh to the ER last night, have decided to wean the 8th as a result, as I can't nurse and nursemaid a broken colar bone at the same time. I also cancelled plans to go to a family wedding next weekend because of the same injury to my toddler, which meant cancelling a six hour road trip for a four day stay at a hotel and a visit to Niagra Falls. Could I please be boring? Please?

Today has already been super exciting. So far I've gotten up, had two cups of instant decaf coffee, mmmmm. I have squashed my fierce beastie into the sofa on numerous occasions and played "fetch the tennis ball but don't bring it back because you want me to chase you." I have brushed my teeth. Just after pressing "post quick reply" I will be getting into the shower. Then I'm going to get some breakfast, get a haircut, take clothes to the cleaners, go grocery shopping, and then I'm off to the dog park. Could life be any more exciting?

JJ Cooper

Sounds like a routine there, mate. Now if you had of said that you brushed your teeth with the opposite hand, we'll think that exciting.

Oh, wait. That's boring. Or slothful.

Okay! I sinned. How's that for exciting? :)

I got to talk to the department of homeland security because I lost a ring when I was going through security at O'Hare. Have to call them back.

also I litsen to a lot of jefferson airplane

I worked until 10:30 last night (terribly boring) but when I got home I went for a midnight swim. It's not the most exciting thing, but it's so relaxing to float on your back and stare up at the star. (No, I didn't leave out the "s" at the end of star--I live in Southern California.)

However, I did see something interesting. A fight broke out between two customers right in front of the makeup counter I work at. It was really crowded and they were both trying to look at the lipstick unit and got into a screaming and shoving match over who was there first.

Prior to that stellar day yesterday, I have actually bunji jumped twice, done makeup for the Gene Simmons show, been on four episodes of Days Of Our Lives, and helped smuggle a stolen Mercedes into Mexico (unknowingly, of course).

I built an electric fence this week, did some wiring in the shed, drew up the designs for the new deck, fish pond and gazebo, and taught my koi to 'give me kisses' on the hand when they want to eat -- someone has to kiss me. Oh, and I scraped a dead bat off the siding of the garage.
Hell, I really really am bloody boring!!!!

Well the most exciting thing I've done lately was stop for a couple hours and help a homeless woman who was freaking out. I... don't usually do these things. Well, I did do it, so I guess maybe I do.

Before that... oh yeah, before that we went to Disneyland! I love Disneyland!

Before that... my dad (who is seriously invincible) had a heart attack. I don't need my life to be that exciting, thanks.

Before that... my (newly purchased old) car broke down and on his way to rescue me, my husband crashed our other car and totaled it so for a while we had 0.5 cars. Getting home after that incident was... interesting. But we got mine fixed so now we just have the one. :)

How far shall I go back? :)

Oh, and CONGRATULATIONS to Azraelsbane! A good friend of mine has been trying to get pregnant for 2 years and lost a pregnancy a year ago, so I've seen how that goes. Anyways I wish you the best this time around! Yay, babies! I'm glad other people have them, and not me! (For now, anyway...)

This week I had hand surgery, my husband's grandmother died, and I had a tooth pulled. But most exciting was seeing my husband do dishes this week.

Hmmm... this week, nothing too exciting. Took my 6 year old to a fair and rode the Tilt-A-Whirl. Wanted to barf when the ride stopped - which then made me sad because I used to be able to ride that thing nonstop. I must be getting old.

I did go parasailing a few years ago - in the Bahamas. Coolest. Thing. Ever.

I didn't do squat, today. Except watch golf. I like Tiger.

And now and then try and figure out this freakin' site/server, which won't work.

I didn't even go to the gym, or work on my wip or walk my pup.

Fenika
08-05-2007, 08:30 AM
I bought 10 rolls of non-climb fencing for $2,000. And, nearly an hour later, I drove away with only 6 rolls (don't ask) :)

Only a month til student loans are released, thankfully, b/c I need a lot more material to put up that fence ;)

Oh, and I'm hopefully closing on a farmette on Wednesday-Thursday. :hooray:

And in related news, my horse dumped me yesterday and I thought I'd lost a kidney cuz I hit so hard. Didn't pee blood, so no worries. :tongue (The things we do for love)

Cheers,
Christina

Yesterday I went nude skydiving for the first time, I expected it to be kinda cold up there, but do you know the air friction actually burns you? When I landed I was totally hairless, and I'm red as a lobster now (cue chorus of "Love Me Tender"). Next weekend the entire all-male nude skydiving team is going to perform its world-famous "Big Bang" display, they tell me I'm going to be first out of the plane! What an honor to have "pole position" so soon!

So, JJ, what's your current excitement?

Nice one Derek. You made me cringe.

Weekend is almost over here so let me just fill you in what I got up to. Bought a new car, watched my brother score a goal in a big soccer match, took the family to a carnival, watched Shrek the Third and warmed up with some scotch.

Also just found out that my sister wants me to go to USA with her next year for a couple of weeks to visit heaps of relatives we have there.

I pressed 110 lbs x 12 reps on the decline bench. Okay, that's still pretty boring, but at least it helps this 57-year-old gal feel that she isn't completely falling apart.

Yet. :)

That's not too bad. Have you tried raising the weight and lowering the reps or lowering the weight and raising the reps. Don't know what I just said but I overhear these type of things when my wife talks to her clients. She's a personal fitness trainer and I'm her lazy husband.

Well, last night when I got online and didn't see a new chapter to crit for JJ, I cried a bit, and went to bed. What, that's not exciting?

Most fun thing I did this week was create a myspace page and hook up w/ some old friends I haven't seen in awhile. It's public for now, if you guys want to check it out.

Yeah, I'm a geek. Just me and my computer and the voices in my head...lol :)

I am thrilled to be bored for a two-week nursing school breather.

I just passed the third block (with a B) which sounds easier than you might think. For instance: our class started out with 26 students last January, and there are only 9 of us left.

So it's an accomplishment.

So far all my classes have been B's, except one A.

To some, it may seem like I personally didn't DO anything... But viewed through the proper lens, it's evident I cut open my chest, ripped out my own heart, stuck it in an 8-year-old, and we both lived to tell the tale.

I don't mind them at all, as long as they don't come any closer than a few feet away. It's when they do the last minute change of direction just before they crash into your head that bothers me.

Had one slap right into my cheek once. And yikes! I was in the house. That was grossssssssssss.

ok, now what did I do today? I filled the hummingbird feeder and ate turkey for dinner.
