It sure would be nice to know if anyone is reading the things I write. It’s not that I need an audience to write- I’m really just doing it for my own time-passing fun- but I’d be interested to know who is visiting and maybe even what they think. I’m working on John to help me figure out how to have comments. I’ve never had them before, but I love reading them on other people’s pages.

I haven’t been as hungry lately. I’m still much hungrier than usual, but not like I was last week and the one before. I was ready to eat almost anything that I could imagine keeping down. This weekend I was really craving beef like I haven’t since I was a vegetarian. I wanted a steak sandwich with mounds of horseradish and brown mustard with au jus dipping sauce on a crusty sourdough roll. Mmmmmmm… It still sounds amazing. I just don’t know where to get one! I’m making myself REALLY hungry just writing about it and lunch isn’t for another hour. TORTURE!!!!

The other thing I have been craving is amusement parks- not to eat, obviously. I have this incredible urge to go to Disney Land or somewhere like that. It’s stupid, though, because I can’t even go on any good rides. BOOOOOO. We’ll be leaving here before I get a chance to go to Cedar Point or Kennywood. Not fair! It’s amazing all the things that you forget you won’t be able to do while pregnant. Stupid pregnancy (No, I’m just kidding piglet! I Love you!!).

Today is my Dad’s birthday. Happy Birthday Pops! I know we have missed some other important birthdays (and I’m so sorry!), but John and I are both really crummy with dates. When we have piglet we’ll probably forget its birthday for a few years. Me:”What day is it today?” John: “Um, lemme look at the calendar. October 28th- oooh, almost Halloween.” Me: “Wow, I almost forgot about Halloween. I feel like we missed something. Musta not been important or we would remember! What do ya want to do for Halloween? …..SHIT!! Piglet’s birthday was four days ago!! How did we forget?” John: “Crap”. Me: “Yea Piglet! You’re 1 year and 4 days old! That’s SO much cooler than boring old 1 Year.” John: “Yeah. Happy Birthday, sweetie. We love you!”
Next year: Repeat.

Really. That’s how bad we are.

So Happy birthday to you crazy March kids who we hold so dear to our hearts. We forgot, but not totally! We’ll make it up to you some day.

So I was just driving back from lunch. I have to pass through this funky section of this town called McKees Rocks on my way. On the “closer-to-work” side of the bridge there is a really skeezy looking “gentleman’s” club called something like Club Erotica. As I was driving past today, I noticed that they had one of those mobile cleaning services parked in their driveway. The name of the business was plastered all over the van- an obvious name of “VAN POWERED CLEANERS”all in caps. Unfortunately, someone didn’t do the best job of thinking through the placement of the words on the sliding door. With the door all the way open, which it was while in front of this club, the “an” of van and the “powere” of Powered were completely obscured leaving the V and the D(all in caps remember). Yes. VD CLEANERS. Beautiful.

And of course, no camera.
