"If there is one or more people on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal."

So true. That goes for all of you.

My new icon, in honour of Jim!

Worship me!

I just got through cleaning off the evil baby Madison, who has lately been training to become a stripper. She enjoys removing her pants and diaper, and today decided to do it while said diaper was loaded. Can you say Ew? So I had to clean the little darlin' off, and she seemed rather proud of herself. She's still looking rather pleased with herself as she sits here on my lap. She has been strictly lectured about her stripping tendencies, and seems ever so contrite, if contriteness equals bursting into giggles. Methinks Survivor needs to come visit and give one of his little lectres (hint hint).

Other than that, it's been a rather uneventful day. Hacker is still really sick, so much of my time is taken up making sure he feels loved, the poor thing. Males and illness, I swear. Well, I should say most males. I know a few who prefer to deny illness and argue with anyone who tries to take care of them. I, however, am a sucker for the puppy dogs eyes that many males seem to have perfected in getting themselves taken care of.

I do want to again thank James and Kelly for my birthday present. They got me a paid LJ accound, which I love, and now I must make sure to take great advantage. I'm going to get icons of my kids up, meaning Tackle has to send me a good one to use. The ones I have just don't work very well for cutting down and using. I still have ones of Tackle's and Spark's kids that I can use as well, and having a whole year to switch back and forth is very nice. James and Kelly do totally rock.

Well, it looks like it's Madison time again. She's starting to get tired and could use a nap since she hasn't slept much today. We shall see if she continues to fight sleep like she tends to do. I guess she just doesn't want to miss anything.

I had to write a post with one of the new icons Kelly made me. Isn't she cool!? If only I had a paid account again and could have lots of icons. I'll have to work on that.

Today I went to the doctor for a follow-up examination, though I didn't get to see him since he ended up being in surgery. So I answered a couple questions from his nurse Lisa, who really is just cool, and got to leave. My mom had driven here to take me since those here who drive and could do it go to work or school that time of day or have other things to do. It also gives an excuse for my mom to come up, which is cool. She lives an hour and a half away, so I don't get to see her often enough.

We ended up going to my Aunt Emma's after the doctor, which was nice since I see her even less, even though she lives right in town. It's amazing how you can lose touch with those who don't live very far away at all. It was also today that I saw my younger brother Tim for the first time in years. He went there to pick up Christmas presents from my mom. It was, to say the least, weird. I would never have recognized him if I'd seen him walking down the street. It was nice actually seeing him again, although our relationship has been rocky for these past years. Since my sister and I had our falling out, he kind of ended up leaning her way while Evan stood up for me. Tim seems to have mellowed over the years. He actually e-mails me on occasion with those silly things that get forwarded all over the place. At least it's some communication. He was even the one who took the first step since I had no way of contacting him at all. I likely wouldn't have anyway, because when I'd done that in the past, the only way that things would be mended was if I would take complete responsibility for whatever fracture happened to have taken place. I wasn't going to do that anymore.

But yeah. Hopefully things will continue to get better there. Tim has some things that Evan wants him to answer for as well, since Tim doesn't have the best histofy of treating our mom right. He does better now, but he still has times when he's downright nasty to her. Evan is very protective of mom, and doesn't forgive wrongs done to her very easily. But it would be nice if we could get a better relationship going between the three of us. Tim hardly knows his nieces and nephew, after all. He saw Evan's daughters, Bridget and Kayla, a few times when they were really young, and the same goes for Allyn. However, he's never met Jason or Madison, though I've sent a couple pictures. We'll see what happens, though.

I do know that things aren't likely to ever improve with my sister Gloria. She's far worse than Tim when it comes to treating people right. She's very self-absorbed, and can be just downright nasty. It's too bad, really. She sabotages relationships herself just by her overall attitude. I won't have my kids subjected to it, and I refuse to put up with her shit attitude against me anymore. If she wants to mend anything, she can bloody well make the first step. I doubt that will ever happen, but we'll see.

Anyway, I have to go. Allyn has a Christmas concert at her school, and we must go to hear her sing. I love Christmas concerts.

Thanks again, Kelly. You do rule!

Okay, one more for now, because I feel like doing this one. No, she didn't ask for it, but she's getting it nonetheless. So there.

Kristen is one of those people that I really wish I knew better. I've gotten to know her a little better recently, and hope that it continues.

She reminds me of myself in a lot of ways. I've fought the same issues with low self-esteem that she has, so I know where she's coming from. She kicks herself far too much, and hopefully someday she can get over this, because she seriously is very cool.

Kristen is a very smart person, and one who is quite defensive of her friends. I really like her no nonsense attitude, and how she doesn't put up with shit from people. I'd love to watch her in person, really. In fact, there are some people I'd love to steer her toward just to watch the show. I have no doubt she'd come out on top.

She's got a great way with words, which probably comes at least in part with her experiences with debate. I love to read it when she debates issues with people, even if there are times I don't agree with her. She makes you think, which is the point of a good debate, after all. She's articulate and knowledgeable, and that makes it a joy to read what she has to say, especially since she actually knows what she's talking about instead of just talking out of her ass like so many others do. And hey, she's open-minded and happy to listen to the other side as well. How cool is that?

As I think I told her before, if there was one gift that I could give Kristen, it would be that she could see herself through the eyes of the people who love her. She couldn't help but see her true worth then.

It somehow seems fitting that I write about Jim after writing about Mikel, even though Jim didn't ask for me to do it, either. The two of them have a lot in common, and I find it interesting to see just how well they seem to know each other even though they've never met face to face and have only known each other a short time.

Like Becky, I could write a novel on what makes Jim so damn cool. I wish that everyone could know someone like him, because having him in your life just makes life all that much better. He's one of those people I haven't known all that long, but I am infinitely happier that he's in my life now.

He's had his share of hard times, just like a lot of people, and while he could try and justify some of the things in his past, he doesn't even try. He's the kind of person who admits when he makes a mistake, and uses that to help others learn from what he's experienced. He's been in some dark places, and does what he can to be the light so others don't end up going there as well, or so others can get out of their own personal darkness. It boggles my mind to think of all he's gone through and not only survived, but come out of having reined in the beasts he's fought. He's like Mikel in that facing challenges only brings out more strength in him and helps him to come out victorious.

I can't express just how much I've come to love him. He has made me smile on more than one occasion when I've needed it. There have been times that I've felt like I was falling apart, but Jim's been there to make sure I stayed together. He's someone who's great to lean on, and you just know that he'd take any blows for you so you could be spared. If you need to be picked up, he's right there to do what he can, and I've taken advantage of this inclination more than once. Someday I will go and meet him and sample those cuddles I've seen that he freely and happily gives out. Of course, I might not ever let go.

Okay, who can guess the typo in this conversation where Nick is writing out song lyrics for me?! See how it changes the tone of the song. Laugh!

firefoenyx: "You don't know. What you do.
firefoenyx: Everytime you wank in the room."
firefoenyx: I'm afraid to move. I'm weak.
firefoenyx: Do you see me too. Do you even know you met me?
firefoenyx: I've waited all my life to cross this line.
firefoenyx: To the only thing thats true.
firefoenyx: So I will not hide. I will try anything to be with you.

I think back on the "Jessica years" of roleplaying online (those of you who haven't heard about it may consider yourselves lucky, for at times it became nightmarish. It might well make people like Matt cry), and I find myself actually having to thank her for one whole thing. That thing is the fact that she introduced Nick to the group so that he could join us and we could get to know him. She gave us a lot of trouble during the time she gamed with us, but this makes up for a lot of it.

Nick is one of those people who you just feel comfortable with right away. He's easy to talk to and has this innate desire to try and cheer people up who seem like they need it. He's good at it, too. I know that he's made me smile at times when I didn't think I could, and that's priceless to me. He's really become an important part of our group, and when he finally goes off to the Navy and has less time to spend with us, we'll definitely be lesser for it. He'd better keep in touch during that time, that's all I have to say. I'd hate to lose touch with him.

Oh, I certainly can't forget to mention that he's very good at giving ego boosts. He's always saying nice things about me, complimenting me left and right. This is obviously a very good quality. Sometimes I can't help but feel a little down about myself, and it's good to know that there are people out there who will give me just the right injection of ego. I wish I could do the same for him, because he often feels way too down about himself, and this is just wrong. I'm glad that things seem to be going very well in his life now, and I hope that keeps up. I want life to fall happily into place for him.

No matter what happens, Nick, remember one thing. You're a hell of a guy and I love you bunches. I look forward to giving you a real hug one of these days.

Laura left not long ago for the hospital, meaning her baby is going to be born at some point tomorrow! That's so cool! I get to be a godmother again! Poor Peter kind of stared blankly and Bree had to help him out to the car. Laura made Mikel carry her and he was nice enough to agree. This time. Isn't he sweet?

Of course, now I have to wait. Grr. These things take too long. Which is probably good to a large extent, but it doesn't make it any easier. It's not like in the sitcoms where you see someone go into labour and then a few minutes later they have the baby. Puhlease. At least I will still be able to sleep tonight with the Vicodin, or I'd likely wear myself out by staying up the entire night.

More good news, too. John never showed up to take me to the SGR meeting that I was supposed to go to (although I don't know why since not much ever happens), so I didn't have to worry about any of that. Found out yesterday that Lidicé is pregnant now, too. Hopefully that'll turn out all right since they haven't got any insurance or anything. Lots of pregnancies going around these days. Which is cool. I like babies. ::grins::
