Pi Day 2015

Posted March 8, 2015 By kmarrs

Borderline Personality Disorder BPDSo 3/14/15 @9:26:53 is a very special time to me.  If you don’t know why off the bat, please just move to another post.  If you do get it, read on.

I am throwing what will be my second annual Pi day party this year.  My first was 3 years ago though.  So there has been a gap.  Between drama, funds, and those days falling on week days, I can’t totally be blamed. However, this year is heralded as the greatest Pi Day. (I argue that the greatest Pi Day was 3/14/1592, and was probably an ordinary day, and no one appreciated Pi Day back then I’m betting, but no one listens to me.)  So yes, Saturday we’ll party as they should have in 1592!  Only less… well… we have better pie now!

So please eat a piece of pie on Saturday in honor of an irrational number that does magnificent things!

Meanwhile, I’m sure I’ll eat more than my fair share!

10 Reasons To Let Sambam Live To See 3

Posted February 27, 2015 By kmarrs

Children of Borderline Parents

So I started this not long before Sambam’s 3rd birthday and apparently couldn’t come up with 10 reasons without resorting to “I actually love her” or “Murder is wrong”, so I’m going to revisit it now that she’s well into OMG THREE YEAR OLDS ARE PURE EVIL.  Ahem.  They are also more entertaining.

  1. She only really has 23 days to go.
  2. She pronounces futon as “puton”.
  3. When she’s defiant and says no, she says “no thank you”.
  4. She is an expert on zombies.  Both being one and remembering to double tap when her brother plays the zombie.
  5. When her aunt asked her the meaning of life recently, she replied “family and love”.
  6. Because while playing with the wrestler figures of an older boy I watch after school, the following came from her mouth:  “My name is Ciena and I love warm hugs”
  7. She has the sense of humor and spot on timing of a true comedian
  8. Because one day she was so excited to nom down on her string cheese, that she literally full force bit her own finger. Of course queue melt down inspired by being bit and being mad that she’s the one that did it and oh the pain and oh the shame. (It was a shame!)  Her daddy and I tried so hard not to laugh at her while comforting her.  AKA she’s pathetically adorable.
  9. She has most of the “Do You Want To Build A Snowman” song memorized.  Granted, her willingness to prove this is getting old.
  10. Because the sheer force of girl power that comes when she plays with her little cousin Rosie, who is basically only 2-3 months older than her, is awesome stuff.  They have their own language and if you could bottle the energy you could power entire cities, but it warms the heart.

Alright!  I should schedule this to drop around her half birthday.

Raising a BPD DaughterSo we all damn well better give her a round of applause!

Mom,

I have no clue if you still read over here?  I know you were an avid fan for years but as I went quiet in the past year or so, I can imagine you maybe just assumed I’m still quiet.  Either way, happy birthday to you, mom.  I love you.  Thank you so deeply for all the support over the past year and a half.  I know I’ve all but bleed you dry.  It’s been a rough one.

Sorry this present isn’t as awesome as what I gave you last year.

FYI for readers: I gave her tickets to see Phantom of the Opera live.  There was no beating that.

2015

Posted January 1, 2015 By kmarrs

Borderline Personality Disorder BPDAfter the past few years I fully give up on having “this year will certainly be better” expectations.  So really, I’m just going to take it as it come and do as I must.

Also, I don’t really believe in New Years Resolutions.  Other than maybe “survive the next 365 days”.  Most resolutions are life changing things and generally speaking, people try to carry out more than one at the same time, and usually with little plan.  So yes, as great as “Eat healthy, exercise more, and stop smoking/drinking/doing drugs/sleeping around/whatever” sounds, chances are…

But, I’m not opposed to goals.  So:

  • I have a reading list I’d like to accomplish
  • I want to take my summer trimester off
  • Keep doing the best I can in school
  • Get back to the art museum sometime soon
  • Get to the planetarium at COSI
  • Remember that this blog exists on occasion
  • Stop dating things Month, Day, 2014 by the end of January.

See?  Just little goals to make my year the best it can be.

 

Do you have goals?  Resolutions?  Survival plans?  Please feel free to share them in the comments!
