Answers (kind of)

You guys were kinda light on the questions, but I can give answers anyway:

From Billy:
Q: "Here's a question...is this the very bottom of the "i beg for comments" barrel?"
A: Not even close. The barrel is much deeper. When I start posting pictures of the tattoo on my stomach, then you will know that we are getting close.

From Ally:
Q: "And here's my question: Why do you think Billy is so bitter and/or feigns that he doesn't like comments?"
A: I think Billy has a crush on me, and this teasing is his effort at playing hard-to-get:-P Like boys who pretend to hate the one girl they have a crush on in third grade.

From Nicole D.:
Q: "Random questions, when is your birthday? What three things would you take to a desert Island?"
A: My birthday is July 22. Tinkerbelle's birthday is this Sunday!!! She will be 8:-) Hmmm...Daniel Craig, Clive Owen and a bottomless margarita:-P. You probably meant non-people. And saying "my iPod" is too easy. So, I will say Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, A Tale of Two Cities and The Killers' Hot Fuss (assuming I have some way to play it). Ask me that again next week and I may give a different answer. [Also, I thought about being super pretentious and saying something like "A copy of Lincoln's Second Inaugural"...you know, because Gettysburg would have been too cliche...]

On that subject...I am far from an English major, but the last third of A Tale of Two Cities is brilliant, and the last two pages are the best thing I have ever read. Seriously, the things that go through your head the moment before you lose it to a guillotine? There is a reason people still read that shit...

I actually read that because a guy friend gave it to me on my birthday during college. I think he kind of had a crush on me, but for my birthday he bought me two copies of that so we could both read it at the same time. Kind of a clever gift...I never would have read the book otherwise, and I always think of him whenever I am reminded of that book.
I also read War and Peace, which I am proud of. Well, I read most of it...it gets really philosophical at the end, and I couldn't quite finish it. I read like the first 1,400 pages and couldn't get through the last 50. That sounds really bad. Seriously Leo, I get it...things are random and you only get a limited opportunity to alter fate. And lots of people died at Borodino...did you need to say that so many times?

How was that for a stream of consciousness blog? Anyone have any more questions they want me to try and answer in the same long-winded fashion tomorrow? Let 'em rip.

I love reading a book with someone else. It helps prod me along now that I have readers' ADD as a result of reading all day at work.

How are the sleepovers with the boy going insofar as Munchkin (no other details needed:)? Did you tell you were going to start letting him stay or just let her figure it out on her own?

2. I was a PLAYAH in 3rd grade, unfortunately, that was 25 years ago.

Yeah ask SHR what the hell Tom Brady is thinking?!?! Knock up Bridget and 2 months later knock up Giselle?!?! Have her ask him if he even knows what a condom is!!

brookem said...

I LOVE that book. One of my favorites.

Ally - Going well. I told Munchkin ahead of time, so she knows what's up. We had already a discussion where I confirmed that we did have sex, so she already knew that part. I don't think I could keep a secret from her even if I wanted to. Well, ok...I do keep some.

Billy - That will look great on a tombstone "Peaked in third grade"

Dimples - I think she is jealous. But so far, she has resisted my prodding to call him. I wanna know when he is gonna bring Gisele over to visit!

Ally said...

So Gisele is preggers too?

Aaron said...

Well, that was anti-climactic. :(
