  1. I really hate pets right now. I want to get rid of all the ones in this house but they aren’t mine. If I had my way, I would get rid of them all.
  2. I need a new laptop. This one is three years old and it keeps freezing on me. It heats up and shuts off on me, too. And I got it when 60 GB was a lot but now it isn’t. I’d like to have a larger hard drive so I don’t have to keep carrying an external drive with me. One day.
  3. California. I really like it here. It has it’s drawbacks: it’s crowded; it’s very expensive; it’s too far from the east coast; and on and on. BUT, I like it. If I could find a nice spot where it wasn’t as crowded and a lot less expensive to live, I would go there. I really like this coast.
  4. I should read more. I have a lot of books that I’ve gotten and have not read. There is also a long list of books that I would like to go out and get but it’s so expensive to buy books. I did discover a used book store last week so I think it’s time to head over there with a list of books I’d like to have and a $ limit on what I will spend. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
  5. Email forwards are such crap! I really dislike them. (I’m trying not to use the word hate today.) I wish people would not send them. I especially dislike the ones that end with that little nagging threat that even though I know it’s not true, I kind of feel like I have to forward the dumb thing so that a herd of elephants does not run through my bedroom or so that my daughters aren’t horribly injured because I didn’t send it on. Yeah. You know the ones.
  6. Family is family. We can’t pick them. Sometimes I wish I could pick my family but then I realize that if I did that, I would have no one to blame but myself when the whole clan revolts against me or becomes revolting to me.
  7. Blogging is fun but it sometimes feels like a responsibility. I guess it is–a responsibility to myself.
  8. Writing long hand fills a different need than writing on the laptop or on the desktop. Long hand lets the thoughts flow from my mind to my hand to my pen to the ink to the paper and to my eye. Somehow it is quite different from writing/composing on a word processor. I should write long hand more often.
  9. Reality shows suck.
  10. I should listen to music more often. I guess that means I should listen to a radio so that I can get newer music. It doesn’t do a lot of good to listen to my own music on CD or on my iPod because the point is to get exposure to different music—music that is new to me.
  11. I wish I could be mean to the cats. I can’t. It would be like being mean to an innocent child and I can’t ever do that, either. I’d rather be mean to me.
  12. I want flowers. I think I will go buy some for myself soon. I haven’t gotten any in a long, long time. The kids (well mostly Tina) used to get them for me on Mother’s Day and on my birthday but I haven’t gotten any since my birthday in 2006. Yeah. I think I’m going to get a yellow bouquet of something cheap. Maybe on the weekend.

13.  I like salad. Some people hate it but I really like it. I like salads as entrees. One of my favorites is a Greek salad.     I               haven’t had one in a long time, though. Hhmmm. I think I’ll have one tomorrow. I have to go to the grocery store                  later. I’ll get salad stuff.
