It stands to reason that there's a total of 500 CDs, with a selection from every genre.

Of course I'm undressed, I am in a Hospital, after all. :)

Over 500 total, different genres, all put on ITunes.

From Alice In Chains, Tori Amos and Blackstar to The Ziggens, The Roots, Supersuckers, and The Who.

I used to have more but I lost some in a flea rampage a few years ago.

Ah, the kids' last day of school, then all kinds of entertainment for the rest of June and early July:

  • Saturday is our next Crimson Throne game, and the last 'til late July. It's amazing how once you get more than 4 adults in a room, scheduling becomes nigh-impossible
  • Tuesday is my attempt to scale Cathedral Lake in a single day. Whee? Oh, and I turn 50
  • The next week is our "family trip" to Ashland. Unfortunately, since my family treats NobodysWife like dirt, she isn't coming (and hasn't for years). I like the way she puts it: "I'd rather work than go, and I don't mind telling them that."
  • After that we're doing Hawaii rather than Disneyland this year. I'm beginning to stress a bit because the family is treating it very much like a Disneyland trip where you just show up and do things, and I keep having to say, "It's a state, not an amusement park! We actually have to plan and make reservations and stuff!"
    I suspect a great deal of sleeping in and lazing around on the beach will occur.
    Ah, well, not my cup of tea, but not particularly stressful, either

  • Anyway, time to prep breakfast for the kids for the last time this month! Woo hoo!

    NobodysHome turns 50?!?!

    More seriously, I'm damn sorry to hear your family is awful to her. How could anyone treat the light of final fantasy that way? For shame!

    A long story as short as possible:
    Yeah, it's really sad. NobodysWife and my sister-in-law got along spectacularly well... until said sister-in-law had kids.

    Sister-in-law had... interesting theories about child rearing:

  • No electronics, ever, for any reason.
    I am always baffled by such parents. How will their kids manage in the 21st century if the first time they encounter a computer is when they turn 18?
  • A child should never experience negative emotions.
    This led to the inevitable unbelievably-spoiled, tantrum-throwing brat whose mother would do ANYTHING he asked of her, just so he wouldn't "feel bad".
  • So in spite of our trying to go along with her (our kids had to go to their room to use their electronics), there was a LOT of tension between us.

    Then, along came my mother and started spreading the most unbelievably vicious gossip between us. We got constant updates as to how badly behaved and socially inept my nephews were. They got constant updates as to how our kids were lazy good-for-nothings who did nothing but play video games 15 hours a day. We got reports as to how she disapproved of everything we were doing with regard to our kids. They got reports as to how we disapproved of everything they were doing with regards to their kids.

    A vast rift opened.

    And NobodysWife finally recognized the vicious gossip for what it was, told my mother to shut it, and tried to extend an olive branch. Unfortunately, no matter how else we feel about her, my sister-in-law is well known to hold grudges. Eternally.

    She wants nothing whatsoever to do with fence-mending, hatchet-burying, or what-have you. The last time NobodysWife came along on a trip, sister-in-law walked into the room, NobodysWife cheerfully said, "Hi, xxx!", and sister in law looked straight in her eyes, turned around, and walked out of the room. It's one of many incidents where she'd say, "Hi, NobodysHome! Hi, Impus Major! Hi, Impus Minor!", and ignore NobodysWife.

    So NobodysWife is fed up and refuses to play the game any more.

    I'd like my kids to have a relationship with their cousins (I never had one with mine), but it IS getting harder and harder with the way sister-in-law behaves.

    And the whole, "We need to kick out your tenants because you're not charging them enough" thing...

    Word do not fail me in terms of what I could - hypothetically - use to describe either situation or individuals involved, but they are words that, by choice, I intentionally avoid using for any reason.

    So instead, I simply extend my empathy to you, NH, and your wife and family, and encourage your wife with supporting her having done the correct thing.

    Though I disagree with the electronics thing (also, though I know what most mean, without excessive gymnastics, or the abandonment of the power grid, I find it... disengenuous), I can at least respect the desire for freedom from a percieved enslavement/mental weakness.

    The rest is... unconscionable. Also: why do people gossip in such ways? I... hate such gossip. I am sorry.

    Because the General works for The Man her family outside her parents barely even talk to her anymore.

    Only reason we got invited to the barn wedding is it's one of her nephews that she babysat for.

    They're just poseurs anyway, they haven't been outlaw country in over twenty years, they just like to talk s$#$.

    Otherwise they just clam up whenever she's around. They love me though, which only pisses me off more.

    And I haven't gotten to my family and their apparent Facebook squabbles.

    No thank you!

    Oh, THAT one is easy! It's very much like the news: When you're starved for attention, you say the most sensational thing you can to attract attention to yourself.

    "Oh, your sister-in-law is doing fine, and the kids have had their issues, but they're doing fine now," is unlikely to get a reaction.

    "Your nephews were so bad your sister-in-law had to call in a therapist, and the therapist took one look at the situation and recommended therapy for her as well," is FAR more exciting.

    Both are true. One is innocuous. One is intended to be "exciting", but instead creates family rifts.

    In the Midwest being able to afford a therapist for junior is seen as a source of pride.

    "Junior's only been seeing the therapist for three weeks but already there's way less bird heads stashed in the attic"

    "I wish I could afford therapy for Suzy, she's already moved on to rodents!"

    Oh, around here NOT having a therapist for your kid is considered a form of child abuse...

    We have no family dramas whatsoever, unless you consider Cousin Genevieve eating an entire packet of Liquorice Allsorts and then going for a swim in the sea off Sidmouth in February to be particularly dramatic.

    A lot of the Midwest is pro child abuse yes.

    Go to any farm and ask the farmer how child labor laws are ruining this country. You'll want to bring a chair and something to drink though, cause it'll take awhile.

    Bonus points if you can get him to praise Reagan AND Nixon in the first five minutes (after five minutes it's pretty much guaranteed both will be praised).

    And we have an official "Woo Hoo" from the NobodysHome Homestead!

    Since Impus Major has college plans, he needs nothing lower than a C in all his core classes. He was in danger in History (a terrible teacher who cared far more about, "What was the name of the general who led this battle, and in what month and year did it occur?" than, "What was the historical significance of this battle?"), Spanish (languages are hard, and he managed to miss TWENTY homework assignments in a single semester, giving you an idea as to how many there were), and possibly English (an execrable teacher who would not communicate assignments nor grades anytime, treating them like state secrets).

    So History was my favorite: In his final 2 assignments, he needed 84/105 to bring his grade up to a C, and the 32/45 on his "pop quiz" final (the one he didn't get to study for) meant he had to get a 52/60 on his oral presentation.

    Being Impus Major, he got... a 52.5, just squeaking by! Woo hoo!

    (Spanish wasn't nearly so dramatic -- an 86% on the multiple choice part of the final and an 82% on the oral part made up for his execrable essay and so he passed as well.)

    Waffles all around!

    Ok, that has to be my favorite telemarketer call in a while.

    NobodysHome, noticing the fake number on caller ID: Hello. This should be good.
    Female Caller: ?? Er, hello. This is Amanda. How are you doing today?
    NH: Oh, I'm really looking forward to the lie you're about to tell me.

    *click*

    It was... satisfying...

    Given that working nights mean I'm usually asleep when I get tele-marketing calls, I kinda feel sorry for the schlubs who get me on the line. If they're lucky I'll just sound like this-is-the-worst-thing-that's-ever-happened-to-me-and-I'm-having-some-sort -of-panic-attack-about-it. If they're unlucky and I'm actually able to be lucid about it, I frequently end up sounding downright rude. (Which is unfair, as it's not the callers' fault their company is ignoring the don't-call-these-numbers list, but well, introverted and just-woken make for bad telephone manners.)

    WOOOT!! I have finally graduated from my alternative college-thing. It was a tough 2 years, but everyone in my class managed to pull through to the end. (a rare occurrence at the school in question, only happening about 1-2 other times in it's approximately 20 year history.)
    It feels great. I leave the campus Monday, after which I may give more details, as it is unwise to give such details about oneself on the internet before it is completely over. I plan to take the weekend to relax, maybe go biking, and just have a bit of time to unwind.
