My cousin's son, at the tender age of 5, has everything figured out. He thinks that when you go to heaven you get to go into God's pantry and help yourself to anything you like... He also says that Pope John Paul II was not bound for God's pantry. (That part of the story requires a little explaining, but suffice it to say that it was really entertaining to hear that the pope didn't make the cut)
you really gotta hand it to kids, they are an honest bunch, and they will always find a way to say some things in a way that will throw you for a loop.
41 things: (I got this in an e-mail and the questions posed were interesting so I decided to post my replies here... Feel free to reply as well.)
1) My uncle once: Stabbed my grandpa with a fork to get the last porkchop.
2) Never in my life: have I knowingly broken someone's heart.
3) When I was five: I was envious of my big brother because he got to go to school and I didn't... now that I am done with school many years later I can't understand why I was jealous.
4) High school was: a place I never felt like I fit in.
5) I will never forget: my mother's love.
6) I once met: Prince. (among others.)

8) Once at a bar: I tackled one of my best friends in a blind-drunken-stupor and did some serious damage to my chin... as well as getting us tossed from the bar. (Shameful I know, but it was a birthday weekend!)

10) Last night: didn't get enough packing done.

14) I have a confession to make: I have put multiple toothbrushes in toilets... Meredith's is the only one I have ever admitted to until now.
15) When I turn my head left: Naked walls (because my pictures are in boxes.)
16) When I turn my head right: Boxes full of my belongings.
17) You know when I'm lying when: I stop short... I am pretty honest, if I stop short of saying something it's because I'm thinking of a nicer way to say it... (as close as I get to lying)
18) Everyday I think about: how nice it would be if I didn't ever have to worry about money.
19) If I were a character written by Shakespear I'd be: a tempestuous sprite... I'm not sexual enough to be a leading lady. (That ol' Billy was big on very sexual leading ladies)
20) By this time next year: I'll be 23 and likely no closer to where I want to be in life.
21) A better name for me would be: ...I think my name fits. If I gotta pick a new one, then Crap Bag. (Think "Friends" episode.)

35) The world could do without: Stupid people, crime, stupid people committing crimes, and hate.

41) And by the way: I think we all work too hard... (Except Marco, we all know he doesn't work too hard)
Despite my recent matriculation (great word) I am in an intro to poetry class... And I really like it!
Upon leaving class today I ran into several people I know. One of these people was a guy who *AHEM* scorned me a while back... I looked fabulous and he looked like hell. Why am I pleased by this?
Oh well... I relish little victories.
