I'm thinking at this point I can go ahead and travel to another continent, since MY FEAR OF CRASHING INTO WATER IN A PLANE HAS BEEN REALIZED IN WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A TOTALLY LAND-LOCKED SITUATION.

We've almost received all of the Christmas mix CDs at our house, and I'm anxiously awaiting the last couple so that I can write my MIX CD REVIEW.

I had a bowl of Lucky Charms and a glass of blueberry-pomegranate juice for breakfast, knowing that the juice was 100% apple and was only "flavored" with blueberry and pomegranate juice, but I still felt "healthy" because it seemed less toxic than my usual coffee.

And then I went and got a cup of coffee to reward myself.

My tasks for the afternoon are: calling to get an appt with a doctor to set up primary care, calling to set up our EVENING OUT plans with our friends, and calling to get enrolled in a yoga class beginning in March.

I HATE making phone calls, and this antisocial behavior has no doubt prevented many opportunities/stifled many budding friendships.

Today's outing with Kiddokabiddo will probably be to Hobby Lobby, to buy a wool shaver so I can keep her vast collection of wool pants (these were only two of the seven pairs) looking smart, and a flexible measuring tape, so when I buy more wool pants, I can make sure I have her EXACT MEASUREMENTS in hand.

I truly can't believe this is the last weekend with G.W. in office (there were times when I would not have believed you if you had told me I would give birth during a Bush presidency because I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE OVER BY 04 AT THE LATEST IF HE WASN'T IMPEACHED EARLIER), and it semi-disgusts me that I will always have to announce that "my daughter was born during a Bush presidency," but at least she will grow into a child under a Democratic president.

I will be watching the final two episodes of Rome by myself this afternoon, since Vee got upset when I told him I didn't like watching TV with him (he was noodling around on his guitar and asking non-related questions during the auditions of "American Idol." Doesn't he know that I am only interested in ONE THING AI-RELATED: THE AUDITIONS?).

"I will always have to announce that 'my daughter was born during a Bush presidency.'"

Passerby: What a cute little girl! How old is she?

Kristine: My daughter was born during a Bush presidency.

Five years later ...

Teacher: Okay everyone, let's put our birthdays on the calendar! K., when is your birthday?

K.: It's on ...

(thought bubble appears, with the image of Kristine looking stern)

K.: (hangs head in shame) I was born during a Bush presidency.

Well, every other kiddo in her class (cause we know she ain't need to be retained!) will be a Bush baby too. Worry not. Her generation is not completely cursed. Good people are born in every presidency.

p.s. When are you ever going to have to make this announcement? Are you a member of a shame club or something?

I love that you guys both called me out on this. No, I will probably never have to make this announcement to anyone.
