Growing up

I hate that even when I am doing my best to be a good/caring/responsible person, I still have to look into the face of my problems/options and admit that I have no clue what to do. When do we finally "grow up"and know all the answers? I'd love it if that could happen soon, please.

"The older you get, the less you know. ...I think someone already said that--I'm plagiarizing it."--Dave H.

Maybe being able to admit that shows that we are, in fact "grown up."

...I don't see how that is fair. Just saying.

Have you heard of this?

I just found* helium.com, which will apparently pay you to write stuff--So cool! And since I am obviously not gifted in the writing department, I thought I'd pass it on to you, because I know that several of you are super gifted. That's not to say that you have to do it, but just that if you wanted to you could. Because you'd be good at it. And because I believe in you. And also, you could use the money you make doing something you are really good at (and really enjoy) to pay your bills.** You are welcome.

*And by "I found" I obviously mean "I was reading the comments on Allie's blog and some one suggested it to her."
**One of which is to buy me ice cream. Oh, you didn't know that? ...Maybe that's why you've fallen so far behind....Well, now you know.

Happy Mother's Day!

This is what our Family conversation looked like:
From 2010 Pic of the day
Yep--that's my sister and I huddled around the computer with my brother on the Skype, and parents on one cell phone, 2 of my sisters on the home phone, and another brother on my cell phone. We had another cell phone there trying to reach my other brother and sister, but sadly they were unavailable. It was fun to have almost everyone "there." My family is funny! (Some of you who don't know my family won't believe that, but I promise. They are hilarious, even though I'm not.)

Speaking of...

Speaking of hats, you should check out the hats that made an appearance at the Kentucky Derby. Here is a little taste of what you'll find: I love hats.

P.S. Dear MSN, I could potentially be a fan of your "glo" (I already really like the logo). I am a huge fan of Google, so I appreciate that you are starting to look like them. Sadly, I find the added bar across the top to be hugely distracting. You know, the black one, which sits below the white one which appears very similar to another site's. This is mostly because it takes up even more of the top of the screen (almost a whole inch at all times, then you add even more with the drop-down menu that pops up if I accidentally pass my mouse over anything up there), which means that the images in your slide shows don't fit on my screen. Huge sad face. If you could please re-size the images so that I don't have to be perpetually sliding my bar up and down, that would be fantastic--I'd like to be able to see the whole image at the same time. Shocking, I know.
The alternative is simply moving your site's navigation bar from the top of the screen to the side, but since you already have other pop outs on the left, it'd have to be on the right... Hey, you could just simplify the whole thing. I understand wanting to draw people in, and I do find the site visually appealing (aside from the slide show images) so far. I'd just like to see the whole picture. Is that too much to ask for? I didn't think so.
