Ok, Ela is cool too. You're on the good list.

I totally forgot about the polar bear video. And Saruman was my best character ever, I deserved an Academy award for that one.

How are your kids? Mine are getting big. I'll be a daddy to a teenager next year. **sigh**

My oldest will be ten in June, and has been a bit of an Eeyore recently. The youngest, well, he hasn't destroyed the known universe yet, though not for lack of trying. He's only seven.

He was a BABY when I first posted to Hatrack. O_O

I refuse to admitthey will ever be teenagers. *fingers in ears, humming*

Good luck. I will have a teenager in the house in less than two weeks. Of course, she's been ACTING like a teenager for at least 18 months already. [Razz]

I thought you might be ineterested in the fact that I had a dream last night where one of the characters was Pat/Satan (Pat was Satan). He kept bothering me and Beverly/Samantha Carter who worked at the Air Force base in Utah Valley, getting us to crash our hot air baloons and airplanes into the Wasatch Mountains.

Oh, I see how it is. I used to think that we had something, Pat. Something special. But I guess I was wrong.

You guys all suck - I already HAVE a teenager in my house. She's 14. [Eek!]

Talking about college plans. Now that's a scary prospect - paying for college for four kids. :shudder:

I missed you too, David. You're on the bad list.


And Jonathon.. you're on a higher plane, plain whatever.

And Porter, that's creepy. I'm not Satan.


I'm actually enjoying my time with Dallin. He's a good kid, is becoming an accomplished guitar player, gets good grades, has a great sense of humor and is a generally likeable kid.

But man does he have his moments.

Pat's ignoring me. I'm not even getting insulted.

[Cry]

And after all I've been through! You probably don't even know how sick I've been. You're truly heartless, Pat. You've ruined my day. I hope you're happy.

P.S. Welcome back. [Kiss]

I'm not ignoring you, Belle. I just edited that last post mostly because of what you wrote.

I've actually been watching your posts from a distance and you've actually been on my mind a lot over the past two years. You went through/are going through my biggest fear in life -- cancer.

You see, both my parent died of cancer at an early age, and at 27 years old I had polyps removed that probably would have taken my life by now.

I didn't say anything to you at the time because we had a few blowups and I felt there were hard feelings there.

But I've been praying for you to get better. [Smile] Hopefully it worked.

I guess cancer does help put things in perspective, because I honestly don't remember what we blew up about. Chemo messed with my memory anyway, it may be one of those random things deleted from my brain.

Past friendships and good times shared matter much more.

Is there something about working for the Deseret News that causes people to quit job after job before starting their own business? Are they spreading some sort of virus there that makes people unable to work for jerks?

If so, can you please spread it to the rest of us who are still working for jerks?

And what exactly is a 21 step program? Is this like a 13 step program for polygamists?

Sounds like we have some friends in common, Rabbit.

I think it's the symptoms of a traditional newspaper world that is grinding to a halt and transforming into the internet. I graduated from J-school with flying credentials and big hopes to change the world. Then I was put in a desk, told to do my work, and if I was real lucky I could retire in 50 years like everyone else there making $60,000 a year.

It took me about 8 years to say thanks, but no thanks. The Deseret News is a great place to go and make some average money. I just had bigger dreams than that.

Starting a business is hard work unlike I've never experienced, but I absolutely love waking up in the morning and hitting it day after day. That's something that never happened before.

You're STILL working for a jerk.

You're just deluding yourself.

How much are you paying and when can I start?

Hi all, it's good to be home.

We really all should talk, catch up and what not some time soon.

Anyone willing to move to Prescott Valley Arizona has a shot, although, I'm not sure what I'd do with a middle-aged English professor who eats popcorn chicken and sells electronica records on Itunes, but I'm sure we could find a place for ya.

Zev? Are you done with the Mish? Shouldn't you be getting engaged or something? How was it? Wow. I'm getting old.

And Amka? Hey sweetie! How's that crazy Russian Husband of yours? And your crazy Halo playin kids?

And Joe? Oh wait, I've been hanging out with you at Galacticus already... [Wink]

*content sigh*

I'm so glad that I suck.

Sorry buddy, but you're middle aged. And if you're selling music on itunes in hopes of becoming a rock star, you're also going through a mid-life crisis.

Just sayin.

Does that mean he had a life, or just that he went looking for one?

He did come back, after all.
