I love the pictures == I so wish I'd done something like that. They are beautiful. Good luck with these last few days!
from dandlioneyes :
GORGEOUS belly! Thanks for sharing. I'm really excited for you. And don't worry about the stretch-marks. I call them my zebra stripes. That babe will be there soon. I'm officially guessing boy. No idea why. :-) Thanks for leaving the note... home stretch, so excited for you! And then: PERU! I'm jealous. Haven't been there in years.
from harri3tspy :
Oops. I'm working on a foreign computer. What I meant to say was, look at that beautiful pregnant belly! I hear you about midwives. I was lucky enough to find a practice with both midwives and doctors -- I've never been able to find another. I was old enough that I didn't feel comfortable being away from a hospital altogether. It was the best of both worlds. You're in the home stretch!
from harri3tspy :
Look at that beautiful
from dandlioneyes :
Happy holidays and a good start to 2007! So exciting with the baby. It is a joy to have a little one around.
from harri3tspy :
Yay for babies! Congratulations, that's wonderful news. Boo for morning sickness and bad skin. But that will pass. That point where your old clothes don't fit but maternity clothes don't fit either is frustrating. I borrowed a lot of sweaters from my husband. That's the good thing about being pregnant in the winter -- your due date is two days after AJ's birthday. The bad thing is coats. I had to buy a cheap parka to get me through the snowy last month of my pregnancy, as nothing else would fit.
from dandlioneyes :
you know, any star who does a "wash and air dry" is good in my books. i can't be bothered to even run a comb through my hair, which, because curly, ends up looking like a lint brush at the end of the day, esp. in humid philly. ah well, that's alright. i'm glad it was a good speech, too!
from dandlioneyes :
yay for pomp and circumstance! how was jodie foster?
from dandlioneyes :
wow, my husband and i spent 5 days in the jungle in belize, and 5 days on a caye off of dangriga for the honeymoon... i remember it well. so beautiful!
from dandlioneyes :
woohoo on the job! :-) very very cool indeed!
from rs536-2000 :
Congratulations, DR. b! Time for mimsy!
from annanotbob :
CONGRATULATIONS!!!
from dandlioneyes :
has it sunk in yet?! :-)
from dandlioneyes :
so are you going to a snazzy restaurant to celebrate? white dog? something in center city? that quite possibly has got to be the best news, your successful defense, you give me hope. CONGRATULATIONS! go out and celebrate! :-)
from dandlioneyes :
CONGRATULATIONS DR. BOROGOVES!!!!!!!!!
from dandlioneyes :
congratulations on turning it in! i'm going to be sending strong doctoral vibes your way. you'll do GREAT!
from eloi :
So when you finish will I get to say, "what's up doc?" Or would that just get annoying?
from eloi :
hey hows it goin? hope you're good...
from dandlioneyes :
sounds like a very smooth and good decision! good luck finishing the @#%$^%^&&** dissertation (i hear your pain), and i'm sure you'll get another assignment for may.
from dandlioneyes :
you know, it IS all about the commute. to give one a sense of purpose. not sure if i want the work at the end of that commute, but sign me up for the stuck-in-traffic listening-to-npr sipping-a-latte-out-of-a-paper-cup kind of commute. i miss bob edwards from npr. what a great voice he had.
from dandlioneyes :
hey, i wrote you an email but it bounced. i'll post it here if you delete it afterwards? the world doesn't need to know all about me! happy thanksgiving!
from dandlioneyes :
i'm so excited for you! you can do it, finish that diss, RA RA RA RA RA!
from dandlioneyes :
so funny with the test. i always liked being vague, saying: it is up to you to know what you need to know or not. they tended to study it all, then. *ha!*
from dandlioneyes :
it always feels like there are 1,000 of the same penn undergrads (clones) on day one of school. they are all wearing abercrombie and fitch, and i never could tell them apart. we went to belize for our honeymoon, snorkled, hiked some maya pyramids in guatelmala. it was great. let me know if you want information on belize!
from dandlioneyes :
your wedding sounded beautiful. i wish you many happy years to come! on a different note: yes, i hope we don't find anything else wonky about our house. i've been obsessively sniffing the air to see if it smells bad. i probably have inhaled all the toxins should the mold have already released them. i also bleached and lysoled the hell out of the baseboards last night....hugs!
from dandlioneyes :
happy birthday, 1 day stale! :)
from dandlioneyes :
ah yes, the writing of the ceremony. we did that, uhm, too. slightly drunk the night before the wedding. it was the biggest load of cheese ever, but it made people cry. i even made everyone laugh, which, to be honest, i'm still proud of. your ring is GORGEOUS! :)
from dandlioneyes :
*congratulations!!!!!* suggestions to follow. :)
from dandlioneyes :
your entry made my heart stop. nothing anyone can say will make this ok. sending my condolences. safe travels.
from dandlioneyes :
oh. my.god. that song. the lyrics were just so... uhm, creative. it had me cracking up. i don't know the song, and i'll bet it is still catchy, but man! thanks for posting it!
from dandlioneyes :
exactly, it is the "actually enjoying the domesticity" which i was taught not to enjoy that is getting under my skin. that, and the fact that i have zero zilch zip motivation. i'm glad you took some steps away from academia, and that things seem to be picking up!
from dandlioneyes :
congratulations!
from dandlioneyes :
you've managed to point out one of the things i really liked about being at penn: FOOD TRUCKS! we always ate at either the magic carpet or at the real lee anhs (right next to it). and yes, the fruit trucks (i always asked them to not include the oranges and then my goodness, not only a plastic container of yummy fruit, but also a banana.) and yes, i know the sweet potato burrito. man, i'm hungry.
from dandlioneyes :
thanks for your heartfelt entry. i couldn't agree with you more. it is nobody's right to determine who may or may not marry. *shudders* i hope we at least get the senate back in 2006.
from iamhubpluh :
If you are voting AGAINST Bush, check out http://BADNARIK.com he is for 100% EQUALITY for the gay/lesbian community as well as for stoping the war in Iraq, and NOT sending more troops as Kerry is for (based on his debate answers). Vote your heart, not the less of two evils!
from creda :
"today i put the first words of my dissertation down on paper" is a HUGE accomplishment. Congratulations! (surfed in through the academia ring, I'm an asst prof)
from dandlioneyes :
hey, i'm with you on the graduation thing. but there will come the day... there WILL come the day. chin up!
from dandlioneyes :
philly itself isn't the problem as much as upenn. and the fact that everything i owned was stolen out of the storage unit on 43rd and chester... that didn't help. and yes, the fact that it is taking for.ev.er. is hard too. cool with the house - where exactly are you thinking of buying? the houses are amazing in west philly.
from dandlioneyes :
thanks for adding me as a favorite. yes, unfortunately, upenn. i survived. am surviving! hasn't been peachy. luckily, i was gone in california my 3rd year, came back my 4th year and lived in center city, and this year, year 5 (oh-god-am-i-old-must-finish-at-some-point), i am in germany. how has it been for you?
from roadiepig :
Yes, I fogot the terrible labor costs. For many cars nowdays, you have to remove an axle or fender to change the spark plugs, let alone an alternator. What they charged you (unfortunatly) sound about right..... (now, if they can figure out what is causing the car to still act up on you, they will have earned their labor fees ;)
from roadiepig :
(I tried to post this in your g-book, but kept getting error messages- sorry if it ends up there, too)....They want $500 to change your alternator? Damn, that seems high (a new alternator for one of our 3-ton dump trucks only runs about $235, by comparison)ůmust be the car you drive?
from greyarea :
i always pee my pants. ; > and i was raised in idaho.
from monchichi :
Ok, all the way pee my pants. Pee in my pants or whatever is just too time consuming! Most often used as "I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants." "She made me almost pee my pants!" Dad was in the air force and moved around a lot when younger. Ohio from the age of 5-9. Korea from 9-11, and Utah from 11-25. I now live in Houston and I am 27. Alison
from borogoves :
re: the rare 9M's. there is no such thing. the scale only goes up to 7M's. (check it out for yourself. 9M's is just too many.
from the1stnoelle :
found your diary (through a link) and i just sat and read *EVERY* single entry. two things: somewhere in july of '02 (i think around the 20th?) your next link goes to the index. i had to read backwards. and have you ever met anyone worthy of the almighty and extremely rare 9 M's? i have. but only that once. :D
from jonasty :
howdy howdy! i was just cruisin the ol' d-land and found your diary... very fun! i'll be back later! byeee!
from spanketeer :
I THINK that this isn't an issue... If I was john i would immediatly break up with Heater because she didn't trust me...I wouldn't even worry about putting the responsibility on her shoulders...I would just break it off because she is obviously insecure with herself and needs help getting over it...help from a paid profesional...not me...I can't go around picking up the peices of everyone who's emotionally unstable...I wouldn't have any time to do anything else...Anyway...yes...heather is dumb
from roadiepig :
I don't think you should feel like you should have to give the 'pigs' to John on his schedule. If he can't help you out in your time of need (around your mom's dog), why should he get the benifit of their companionship when it's 'convienent' for him?...I'm just saying.......Also, don't under-estimate the mental harm you may be subjecting the pigs to, if Heather dosen't want them around! .....Oh, and exe's being friends? That only really works on crappy NBC sitcoms...I wish you good luck in whatever you decide to do.....
from mangus :
I say....Bitch slap some sense into Heather
from dearanxiety :
yeah, i usually end up kissing someone on the first date even if i don't really like them (which can cause problems of its own, but whatever). and as for sex, once i've decided to have it with someone, why wait? that's just silly!
from spanketeer :
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...yeah...I met a guy who didn't kiss his last boyfriend for 3 months...KISS...That was a little too much for me...Usualy I kiss (a peck) at the end of the first date...And usually Kiss (you know what I mean) on the second...And by the third we've slept together...But I'm usually faster than that...I don't understand a lot of people...Especially since I'm gay...and all guys want is sex anyway...So why deny yourself of it?
from dearanxiety :
ok. i agree with you on the fucking and sex, but it's weird...i always hated the term "making love" and it still kinda makes me cringe. but at the same time it's a good description of sex that is fucking with emotional attachment. good sex where you're looking into each others eye. i don't know. i have almost no opinion on the lights or music on or off...i think it depends on the situation. loud is good. especially love it when his mouth is right by my ear. mmmmmm...
from eloi :
I think by now you know quite a bit about my sexual attitudes - but here are my answers to your sexsexsex questions anyway:
Sex/Fucking/Making Love - Fucking, definitely. I think "Sex" is a category more than a verb, and I share your opinion on "Making Love"
Positions - My favorite is "Doggy Style", although I hate the name - I love holding on to her hips and pulling, pushing, pulling... Ahem, let's just say it rubs me the right way. I also like the "Crab", although I'd never heard that name. Our bed is the perfect height, too...
Lights - On, why exclude any senses from the sensation of fucking?
Loud or Quiet - Loud is very good, but I get really turned on by the situation where you're fucking passionately, but you have to be quiet - it's the mixture of out-of-control with staying-in-control, mixed with trying not to get caught, you know?
Music - I prefer no music, and if it's on either I won't notice it at all or it's not very good sex...
from borogoves :
so this is the polling area, see? i'm still unsure about the usefulness of a notes page vs. a guestbook, but i've decided to try this out as a forum for gathering responses to questions i pose in my diary. for an example of such questions, see sexsexsexsexsex.
