Best political commentary ever.

Keep in mind this is an alien posing as a presidential candidate... which makes it even better.

No one is forcing you to read this.

This is an email forward I got today. I hardly ever fill out forwards like this, because I never know who to send them to. I always wonder, Who would really want to read this?? So, instead of stuffing your inboxes with my self-centered ramblings, I move to my primary avenue of communication these days: the blog.

Because I've posted this on the blog, you are not forced to delete my unwanted email or condemn it to your spam folder. You are not made to feel guilty for not responding or forwarding my message (no "bad luck" warnings or "Bill Gates's fortunes" here).... In fact, if you don't want to read ahead, simply hit the back button on your browser and look at someone else's baby's pictures.

Here it goes. Read the following list if you feel like it. Fill out one of your own if you have the inclination. You're only allowed to use one word answers.

CDs and Hormones

I think that I’m one of five Americans between the ages of 15-30 who doesn’t own an ipod. Therefore, I still like making mix CDs… and naming them, of course. These aren’t just your run-of-the-mill “Michelle’s awesome mix” and “Michelle’s radical mix” titles, my friends. A lot of thought – and alliteration – goes into the naming process.

Anyhoo, I’m trying to create a CD with good, happy baby songs...not for the baby to listen to, but for me. (As if I’m not emotional enough already, let's stick 20 sentimental songs in the CD player and see what happens.)

Here are some ideas that I have so far: Tim McGraw-“My Little Girl”, John Mayer -“Daughters”, James Taylor-“Sweet Baby James”.

Does anybody have any other ideas for me?

I finally finished painting and furnishing the nursery last week. And yes - I'm looking for compliments here, because Brad thinks the stripes are weird. I'm still looking for something to hang above the crib... maybe vinyl lettering? maybe three big, cherry picture frames? I don't know.

p.s. Zoom in on the crib bedding... I have such a crush on it.

Reality just set in.

I'm going to have a baby. Soon. Why is this just hitting me? I'm kind of freaking out. Someone tell me why this is a good idea, again.

"If my eyes should ever turn brown, my career is shot to hell."

This is a bit belated... but I just need to express my sincere sadnesss over Butch Cassidy's death. I have such a crush on Paul Newman, that I often buy his salad dressing just to see his picture smiling at me from the inside of my refridgerater door. Here's to one of the good ones.
