Today is CRAZY weather-wise. It's been raining like the flood is coming off and on all day. Then it'll heat up and be warm for 20 minutes. Then cold. Now, it's back to lashing rains - with thunder and flash lightning! Woo-hoo!

In the last 24 hours I have written just over 2000 words (actually took me 2 hours, plus an hour of revision) and mailed it off to my advisor. Neat. The essay is on Margaret Barker's ideas, which, if true in any way would totally throw conventional Christianity for a loop. Maybe I'll post my essay under a filter.

I also read, in the last 24 hours, a book about Taoist sexual practices that I found used. While I do not doubt there can be spiritual and physical benefits from various forms of Eastern sexual practices, a dude wrote the book and his tone plus the content (heavily centered on how fellatio has physically restorative and spiritual benefits) makes me think: yer a douchebag.

Adam leaves for the US tomorrow. He does the dishes. It dawned on me today that I now have to do the dishes too while he's gone. Ack! Come mid to late afternoons I am *wiped out* and just want to watch tv. I feel like the worst parent ever because I know B and I are going to watch copious amounts of cartoons, movies and whatnot. Ah well. I'm pregnant. So there.

In more 'awesome parenting and domesticity' we are having left over tuna casserole. Don't all rush over for dinner, now.

Leftovers are my best friend. Don't knock leftovers.

Maybe this would be a good time to let yourself use paper plates at least half the time.

You know.... we have some left over from his birthday party. That is a great idea!

Haha! I was going to say the same thing. (paper plates)

Something about hot tuna grosses me out. I haven't ever been able to venture into tuna casserole territory.

There's nothing wrong with leftovers, though! I always try to cook more than we'll eat in one meal so that we'll have leftovers! Eating twice or more after only cooking once? Efficiency!

p.s. if you get lonely when A is gone, we can Skype :) - I got myself an account & my macbook has a webcam.

I actually like leftovers a lot, but there is something sorta gross about leftover tuna casserole. I have a recipe for an EXCELLENT tuna dish - not a casserole. I wonder if you'd like it?

YES. We will skype! YAY!

For me, the worst thing to wash by hand is the silverware. Drives me nuts for some reason.

LOL about the douchebag ~ I wonder if his "spiritual" line is successful in getting him more sex?

I think what really annoyed me is that the specific spiritual path he was talking about was for women - why is a guy writing about a women's tradition? Ugh.

Receiving or giving?

Mostly giving. Also, semen is apparently the best face cream you could ever use.

LOL...what a scam. I can't believe this ended up in a book about Taoism.
