Back when people used to read my blog, I wrote a post about the Duggar family, and as I've moved forward in my life as a parent, I've developed more than a little bit of respect for this family - I mean, wow, the organizational skills alone are unbelievable. I'm completely unorganized and I only have one. They have, like, 27 kids or something now. Actually, it's like 16 or 17, I've lost track. Still, I'm a big believer in birth control and credit cards. That's why I'll probably never have another kid - for both of those reasons. Anyway, the Duggar kids are adorable, and so polite and well mannered... I think they're great role models for kids. So many kids these days are just horrible - mean, spoiled little brats - and my kid is probably well on her way to becoming that.
I'd much rather her be like a Duggar kid. Does that mean I have to change her name to something that starts with a J? Cause if so, I'd like it to be Jezebel.
I listen to podcasts in my car. I'm a big fan of NPR (been listening to the BPP since before Dooce posted about it... then I felt TOTALLY cool, like I was on top of things). When Lost is on (which it will be next week - YES!) I listen to all the good Lost podcasts religiously, like Jay and Jack and the Transmission... I'm more than a little obsessed with Lost, so that makes two more things that you didn't know about me.
I told Lyric the other night that when she finally does have a brother or sister, that she's going to be a much better big sister than I was. I was a terrible big sister, in my opinion. I beat up on my brother, I was a bad influence, and I blame the fact that my brother smokes on myself. I'm trying to make up for the years of being a shitty big sister. Although I did let my brother hang out with me in high school.
I'm a fucking awful procrastinator. AWFUL. When I have too much shit to do, I keep putting off the other things that have been sitting on my plate for months. It's terrible. I have a wedding video to finish, envelopes to order within the next two weeks for another friends' wedding, and I'm too damn lazy to potty train my own child. I have a house full of projects that need to be done, and I've lived there for two years. It's goddamn ridiculous.
And that's five things you probably didn't know about me.
