my dad rocks, folks. he has the patience of a saint, and NOTHING shakes him up. i'm extremely grateful for the family i grew up in, even if 3000 miles away is still the best place for me right now.
wasn't one of the best conversations i've had with my mom lately. she went off on a long tangent about how i should try to get a job with the U of Washington, even after i'd told her four times that they already have my resume, culminating in telling me how government jobs have good benefits, especially maternity benefits.
i swear, i'm not moving back to north carolina til i have her bloody grandchild in tow.
good day otherwise. it poured rain for most of it. we chased out to Framingham to see Tomb Raider. yes, i drooled. yes, i know that movie is aimed at teenaged boys. that doesn't mean that chicks who appreciate the female form can't drool too. =] besides, i'd like to think there's another demographic for movies like that - girls who grew up playing football, climbing trees, learning computers, riding bikes - the ones who ripped out the knees in all their jeans (my mom hated me, growing up) and busted open their lips on someone else's knee, making an awesome tackle; who ripped off the heads on their barbies instead of playing with dolls - and now, even though they've grown up, still secretly wish to kiss ass like Laura Croft.
