Gettin' while the gettin's good!

Packed, list double checked, maps are where they should be, P90X stuff stowed away (no rest for the weary!) I have a cooler full of beverages and cut veggies (I'm the meanest mom ever, I'm raising my kids to be Rod and Tod Flanders. "Yay, Imagination Christmas! I got a pogo stick! I gotta bicycle!" *pantomimes*) and lots of movies for the DVD player in the Family Car. My stupid Vista-run computer doesn't want to make CDs that work in my car anymore, so I'm going old school with individual CDs. LAME. Let's face it, I'm going to have a steady run of Itchy and Scratchy's theme song on repeat after a few days...

The kids and I are taking the Family Truckster thru the deep south to Farkland (Florida) with a bypass in Birmingham for some Civil Rights edumacation. Back in a week and change, don't break the internet while I'm gone, and if the Worst Thing happens, I want dovil to sockpuppet me so every one will think I faked my own death. (You can divide my things amongst yourselves. *g*)

Later, boners! <-- (I want this on my tombstone, P.S.)

i was born at Eglin AFB in Florida. therefor, i have the right to tell you the *TRUE* name of northern Florida - LFA

LFA = "Lower F'ing Alabama" (and i censor myself because, again, afraid of Edward and Voicemail lol :D)

Enjoy, though - most of Florida is actually quite fun. avoid the Palmetto bugs, which are really just extra evil demon-roaches on steroids.

and if you take any pics that you want share... but that is only because in my less sane moments i think i miss the South... oh, and hey - i'm pretty sure Birmingham *also* has a space center, so you can go to two if you want!

Well, at least you aren't packing educational movies for them to watch. I have to ditto the warning on the palmetto bugs. Those things are scary as hell. Some you might have to hit with a car.

What program are you using to try to make cds? Because if it's iTunes, there's a fault in the last couple of incarnations of it that Apple has refused to fix, help people with, or even acknowledge, that makes it almost impossible to make a working cd off your iTunes playlist, all that happens is you ruin a cd-r.

oh! when i first got on the interweb at the grand old age of my late thirties, i ended up on a site where my teenaged daughter hangs out. and OH, we had so many people thinking my kid made me up and was setting me up for a big death scene so she could get attention! we have the same vocabulary...although my spelling is better....and i actually had to meet some of those people face to face before the wizes would vet me.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
