Some quiet observations Part I

I don't know if its just me or what...but man, I hate it when people just can't spell. I think maybe because it has always come easy to me I am biased...but it really pisses me off when people don't even take the time to attempt spell check! Its one thing to completely misuse grammar because we are Americans and that is the American way...but to misspell things that are 4th grade level words really gets my goat! I realize that sometimes people make mistakes, but I really get irritated by what I perceive to be stooooopid people.

That being said, I know that some smartasses will point out every single spelling error I make from here on out...and that's fine because that's what I would do. However...just remember that karma is the great cosmic equalizer. I do not live in a glass house and I have cast the first stone..SO THERE!

Have you ever had flashbacks of things you have done? I am talking about things from like third grade...I keep thinking about things like that lately. I don't know if its because I am approaching --gulp--THIRTY or if its owing to the fact that we are having a 10 year reunion this year...but I am really having a good time remembering. I have been thinking about people I haven't even heard from since graduation...and wondering what path their lives have taken. I know I never would have thought in a million years that I would end up married, and living in WELLSTON of all places...I always pictured living in a crowded city somewhere doing something arty or creative with my life...not dealing cards at the Little River Casino Resort. I think I was pre-destined to be with Warren, because we were dating, and then broke up...and then found each other again a few years know that whole "if you love something set it free..." bull? It was true! That's another thing, I don't know of a single little girl that grows up saying "When I grow up, I want to fly out to Las Vegas and get married at the place with the drive through wedding chaple." But that's where we ended the good old Little White Wedding Chaple..the one where Michael Jordan and Joan Collins were married (although not to each other as it may appear). AND I WOULD NOT CHANGE A THING! Well, maybe I would have had Warren's family there...and maybe my brother. Aw hell, I suppose we've got it on tape, that should be enough. I do wish we would have had some sort of reception after we returned home. I just wasn't practical and now, its been far too long. I guess we'll just have to wait for our anniversary to have a big party.

Speaking of DAD is turning 50! On the 25th of this month. I am trying to convince mom to have a party for him, but she thinks that since he doesn't drink, he wouldn't enjoy a party...I think she's wrong! I think she doesn't want to remind people that she is also 50! But I could be wrong...Happens all the time!

I understand totally. Going to Vegas was the best decision I ever made. I watch all my friends getting married with "real" weddings here--all the stress, they are not even having fun. And so much money.

Oh, and your Mom should SO have a party. You don't need drinks to have fun!
