So I just spent the night/morning talking my mother off a metaphorical ledge. And since apparently I am biased, I need your opinions. If, theoretically, a mother could have a long, involved, philosophical discussion about whether or not they are a bad parent with their ADULT child, and the adult child does not scream at them or whimper and run to the nearest therapist, the mother is probably NOT a bad parent, y/n?

My mother seems to think that because she isn't rich and able to give me my every material desire, hasn't been the first perfect person in the history of the universe and therefore set a flawless example, and I'm not featured in Forbes and/or deliriously happy with my life, she has somehow failed. I tell her that the fact that we have a strong relationship and I can talk to her about losing my virginity, stupid teenage experimental drug use, stalker ex-boyfriends, how hard it is to resist the urge to be mean and vindictive to someone who probably deserves it, and other life crises is more important than said Forbes feature/delirious happiness. She says I'm biased.


Help me convince her that she is suffering from a severe case of Unecessary Overachiever.

I'm quite pleased with my progress today; I did all my friending-back (I don't auto-friend anymore so it takes time to go through everybody's LJs and make sure we have common interests) and replied to EVERY SINGLE COMMENT. Some of them were very delayed replies and I'm happy I got it all squared away before I post my BigBang. Nothing like cyber-spring-cleaning.

Grab the nearest book.
Open the book to page 56.
Go to the third paragraph.
Find the fifth sentence.

Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.

Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

"We have had no choice but to release the skeletal remains for burial, since it appears no trial will ever be held."

Dead Men Do Tell Tales, William R. Maples Ph.D. and Michael Browning.

This was at the top of the teetering stack on my night table; my idea of light bedtime reading is a little forensic anthropology, since if I start a fiction book I'll be up reading it all night.

RL updatey stuff, cut for the sake of your flist... )

I got a new laptop today. BestBuy is the shiznit. It's all shiny and skinny and with the webcam and DVD burner and OMG I love it. I want to have it's babies, and the best part of all is that Mr. and Mrs. Next-Door apparently do not bother securing their wi-fi network. Free internet access for MEEEEEE!!!!

*dies from teh joy*

I will be spamming y'all with updates shortly.

I am so stuck on my bigbang fic. I've managed like two sentences in the last two weeks. *rereads submission guidelines* I can change my mind? I may do that. Ep 3.12 left me wanting either crazy cracky antichrist!Sam fic or a schmoopy fluffy bunnies of lurrrve AU with the boys picking out china patterns. *will consider...*
