I opened up the mail yesteday...  
And found the first issue of National Geographic Kids subscription that Aaron got for his birthday.

I actually didn't see it until we got home, and I saw Ethan sneak something to Aaron behind his back. Never a good sign.

Me. What have you got?

Aaron. Nothing, mom.

Me. Ethan, what did you give him?!

Ethan. Trust me mom, you don't want to know.

Me. (uses 'mom' voice) Give. It. To. Me.

( the 'mom' voice is irrefutable, so they had no choice but to hand it over. Which they did.)

Me. (screams, shouts, growls, mild, child-appropriate swears)

Aaron. Why don't you like dolphins again, Mom?

Me. Uh... I'll tell you when you're older.

As far as other things going on in and about fandom, I'll say that I'm too angry, too upset and too disappointed in so many things that I really don't want to talk to most anyone about anything. When I'm completely calm, I'll revisit the situation. Maybe. If I feel like it, and if I still feel as if the people involved are worth the time and energy needed to post.

I still say: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
I feel:: upset

EEK! Evil dolphins!

*assumes ninja stance to protect Carrie*

Love you, Carrie.

That's what I needed to protect me on my honeymoon! A Ninja Nicole!

Of course, I think you would have been ten years old, then, so I don't know how honed your ninja skills would have been.

I was a bad-ass ten year old, I'll have you know. I think that was the year I got into a fight in the schoolyard. It's all about being smarter than your opponent.

I'd totally have been into swimming with the dolphins, though.

It isn't the swimming part that I had issues with. ;)

I was a bad-ass ten year old, by Nicole.

*dies laughing*

I'm sure you were.

Hahahahaha. They follow you everywhere, don't they? :-P
Carrie Leigh: bad examplecarrie_leigh on March 31st, 2009 04:21 pm (UTC)

With that smug look on their face like, "Oh, I'm so CUTE! Love me!"

No, thank you, I don't think I will.

Oh, poor woman....
The evil creatures sure know how to get you.

They DO.

Wait, what fandom? I only know d/g these days, & I never even follow it anymore...
Carrie Leigh: We're actorscarrie_leigh on March 31st, 2009 05:16 pm (UTC)
It's really nothing important. Nothing in the D/G world. It's okay. :) Just me being all dramatically mopey. It's an occupational hazard. ;)

*loves you muchly*

I know muchly isn't a word, but it fits there.

So sorry about the dolphins--but think of it as a sacrifice--you being used in such a merciless way by that dolphin continues to bring joy to us, your f-list, time after time.

Oh Carrie, poor you with the evil dolphins *hugs*

Will your son ever be old enough to explain that to *grin*

Hopefully things will get better soon.

*cackles madly at how the Magazine people mock your pain*

Other than that - MUCH love! :D

Bwahahaha! I'm laughing with you. Really.

I so second the 'if you don't have anything nice to say' notion. In fact, I third it.
O Demanding One: Express: Oops!  Poohheyurs on March 31st, 2009 07:28 pm (UTC)

hehe! At least they tried to spare you, Mom. *beams at them*

Love! for hanging in there and dealing. ♥

I'm just me: Taylor *giggle*airmidm on March 31st, 2009 07:50 pm (UTC)
*giggles* That one hasn't arrived at our house yet. The boys get points for trying to keep you from seeing the cover. ;)
raspberry_rave on March 31st, 2009 10:59 pm (UTC)
Heheh. *pats you* One of these days they'll leave the planet like in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and you're be really happy :)
