Ramblings Of the Sleep-Deprived  
I'm off for a Girl-Scout Mother/Daughter weekend outing, which will keep me awake an entire night in a one-room lodge with some 60 girls and 40 moms. Last year? A nightmare. This time, I am taking dinner along, since it wasn't ready until 8:30 last time and I was ready to kill someone (stupid hypoglycemia). I frankly dread almost any outing where I am not in charge of my own food, but be that as it may... my 8-year-old is over the moon. We do what we must!

I was stung in the armpit by a bee while cycling on Tuesday. Where is the dignity?

My 6-year-old (Mr. Future-President) came into the kitchen after his bath Tuesday night and announced, "It's the Ultimate Me!" And I muttered to my husband, "Is there any other kind?" If I had his confidence, grade school would have been a hell of a lot easier.

Michael and Lincoln are not forgotten. Future chapters of "Always" are kicking my butt, and Supernatural is flowing, so... I bow to the deluge of Sam and Dean and keep plotting away on PB.

Hope all my f-list friends having finals this week did well! And don't forget us over the summer. ;)

Oh God, I'm so sorry, but I just had to laugh about you and the bee. The armpit has to be one of the least-dignified places to get stung. Other than maybe the butt...

Ha! I can already laugh about it now. At the time, I turned a corner and just ZZZZzzzzzzzzt! "You little monster! What the hell did you do that for?"

This falls on the list with a few others of "Why did you sting me there? What were you doing there in the first place?" :0

Ahhhh.

I remember girl scout trips.

I got sick on every single camping trip.

Ha.

Wow. Now that would be a bummer.

I was never allowed to go on any of their trips (overprotectiveParentsWithBlahdyBlahLamoReasoning). This one is indoors-- the giant slumber party from hell-- BUT... I will do it because she loves it, and because I remember really resenting that my parents never would.

You know you're not supposed to eat everything you find along the trail, right? ;)

Sorry for the intrusion, but I'm commenting to let you know I gave you Oregon (in addition to Montana) for the spn_50states.

If someone else claims Oregon and they don't have a claim yet, I'll have to bump you off Oregon. Just to let you know! I'll e-mail you if that happens. Check out the second round sign-up rules here.

the armpit - that sounds bloody sore.
Surprisingly painful. But I get 2-3 stings a year (!), and I've come to notice that they get more painful over time. Of course, all of them are while cycling, so I can't always immediately stop and check for the stinger.

Sadly... bees are just damn stupid.
