Why don't you go to the Garden of Gods and tell them that E.

lol. If you made them cry, I don't think they would let you or your ninja monkeys into the garden. Have you even been to the Garden of the Gods, E?

You speak as if they had a choice about letting my ninja monkeys in.

Trust me, when his monkeys came in, only those of us gods with the foresight to bring portals connected back to our individual enviroments were saved the embarassment. ;D

I love my neice and nephew. And, when I took them to the park today, I officially became the coolest person in the world--well, the coolest adult on the playground, at least (and I say "adult" loosely). I kept coming up with really creative things for Owen and Ava and me to do, like play that we were rescue rangers and we had to save Owen from falling down the slide into hot lava or pretend that I was an evil super villian who would lock them up in prison (a net-like portion of the playground) where they could NEVER escape (which, of course, they did). Well, soon all the other kids on the playground wanted to play, too. And they were all trying to get my attention and get me to chase them or put me in jail and would get upset if I would take a break or go off to play with Ava (the two-year-old who needs more constant observance) alone. It actually got a little overwhelming, though it was flattering. I mean, my imagination and I were in demand. That doesn't happen everyday.

So, I felt validated. At least kids love me. And that is certainly true of Owen and Ava. I felt bad for my brother tonight when Ava cried inconsolably when I was leaving, howling my name as she struggled against my brother's arms and reached for me. (Her mom's out of town and that makes her a little more insecure, I think.) Yet, once again, I was flattered. Nothing like a child heart-broken at your leaving to make you feel loved.  ;)

Kids are crazy, but in the best way possible. :)

I'm happy because its raining. I know its kinda weird, but I can't help but like gloomy and/or rainy days, one of my quirks I suppose.

I got a job yesterday. A very small job writing articles for a new parenting website, but still. It fits into my master plan of building up my freelance portfolio and slowly transitioning to working at home, so I have more control of my schedule and can work even if I'm not feeling well.

So, yay for me!  :D

Congrats! Even a little job is something to help you get started, and it sounds like it's exactly what you need right now. Good thing Utah is relatively cheap to live in.

Much to my to-do and surprise I have a date coming up, and I am needing the Mad Dr Jeffe to help me with some things. I would like a few of your over-bearing, completely awesome, tactile recipes for this occasion.

Please post a few or e-mail them to me if you would. zkaveney @ gmail Dourt com.

Congrats on the date, Gemm! Hope it goes well.

I made it to California safe and sound. Should be here about two weeks. The first week will be just me and my little brother. He's playing me some of his music right now (it's very loud), and I'm going to help him with his English homework. He's a cool kid, should be fun to hang out this week.  ;D

I've written 2816 words tonight! Yay! I'm thinking maybe I need to join Jonowrimo, a pre-Nanowrimo informally run by a writer friend. Everyone involved gets a month and a half head start on Nano and has a goal to fulfill, whether that's finishing a first draft, hitting a deadline, or whatever. I think that's a great thing to do for experienced writers who don't necessarily want to start a new project for the month but like the discipline and community it gives them.
