    Just kidding, but you need to establish rules and guidelines about such tom-foolery and fast too.
    Hence, the lack of judgment comment. My wife read the Twilight series out of morbid fascination. She thought it was crap (well, confirmed her preconceived notion that it was crap) but knew better than to suggest it to me. I would have thought kenn's gf would have similar good judgment. I am disappoint.

    GotD: could someone please show up to work today? 50% of the last two shifts called off.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I think she likes the show more than books, something about vampires in the under 30 crowd that baffles me.

    That was me, last week. No idea why. Plenty of physical exertion over the weekend provided much-needed reset.

    I've heard anal glaucoma is going around. People can't see their ass at work.

    *shakes head* This is what happens when you let the wimminz out of the kitchen. They try to have opinions and stuff.

    What you need to do is explain, slowly and using small words for her little, feminine mind to handle, that they are not vampires. They are a sparkly, emo, vegetarian blasphemy against what should be hotness and danger. I sincerely hope that the spawn embraces her dhampire self and sides with the super hot werewolf to wipe the disaster from the face of the earth.

    I used to do healthy relationship education with teens, and the girls were always going on about how Edward would be the perfect boyfriend. I decided to read the books so I could better address why that's so effed up. Fortunately, I had lots of reading time while I was on the sofa with a broken leg, and the prescription painkillers definitely helped me survive Stephanie Meyer's "never use one adjective when three will do" writing style.
