Hahaha! Second nose punch! The Thin Red Line. Det. Blakely lands one on Patrick.
bona that's what I was wondering, if they learned English or French, depending on where you live in Canada I guess.. That's good they're learning so many languages!
@Mimi - yes, I speak swiss with the kids, so they are able to speak with their friends and my family, when we go for a visit to Switzerland. Or course they speak english in school. And in grade 5 they started with french now also.
@Entwife - Jane with the little baby girl, sooo cute. He always smiles and coos at babies, but I bet inside it hurts him a lot! BTW: your stupid big feet keep following me around! :-D
Watching my dvds, still in the first season The Thin Red Line. It takes place in Davis, CA. Home of Visualize and the Orchid Lane house from TWBB. Interesting.
I'm watching Red Hot, Mashburn is growing on me, he's actually really charming! and his red sweater suits him.
bonaduz so you don't speak English with your kids? but what language do they speak at school?
@KM - yes, wanted to ask you for a while now, but keep forgetting. You said your kids study two languages. English and ??
I'm trying hard to get my boys to learn how to read and write german. They're not really enthusiastic about it. I speak swiss with them, but that is quite different. They speak swiss very good, but their spoken high german is 'p..poor'! At least they understand it more or less!
How did you start? Or do your kids learn the second language in school?
bona-glad your son is better!
I have seen that interview, I love how he's embarrassed with the sex symbol question, cute:-)
oh that's interesting! and your kids? what are they going to study at uni?
yes I couldnt find glitchy in the dico!
@KM and Mimi - Glitchy? New word, not on Google translate :-) but I know what you mean. Thank's for the info!
Oh my son is better already, thank you for your good wishes! It couldn't have been that bad, he's already fighting with his brother again - kids bounce back so quickly. I admire them! He's not one to stay in bed anyways. Not enough 'action'! It's getting harder every year to keep up with them *sigh*
I saw an interview with Simon Baker the other day, where the Ladie asked him, if it ever gets old to be called a sex symbol. He answered: 'No, but I will eventually!' Made me smile :-D
No. I was pursuing a career in medicine. Even as far as studying at medical school. My degree is in biology and chemistry, and I ended up a molecular biologist working on 3 genes on the HIV genome. But, my husbands career required me to walk away because we moved out of state. So then I did domestic violence counseling and mediated a support group. I nurse is an honorable career, but I never reached it. The proper term was an emergency medical technician, I was certified for emergency rooms and ambulances.
And, glitchy is far more colorful than defective or malfunction. :-)
KM so you're a nurse?
It happens. My sister-in-law is the same way and so that task falls to my brother. There are things that squick him and she covers those. But, we all have things. I don't like trimming people's nails, especially toes. But, you could bring sick or injured people into the emergency room and I could do it all. Including be there so they didn't die alone and then see them to the morgue. Teddy will leave me with the same steady hand. Just not a pedicure. :-)
@ bonaduz, I hope your son feels better soon. And if its contagious, that he keep it to his sweet self.
oh glitchy! a new word!
Bonaduz, me too you just have to go backwards and post again it happens to me too..
Our darling Mimi thinks the system is glitchy. I think she's correct. It has happened to her and our Entwife too. Try clicking back and repost. Give it a couple of tries. If that won't work, close the window and start fresh. Tis annoying.
KM so he's holding on! I guess it's because of all the love you give him!
well some people develop phobias regarding vomit because of traumatic experiences, although it seems silly, it does happen, all phobias are 'silly' though especially when you are not experiencing it, it's hard to understand why the person is freaking out. My mum developed it and was freaking out when we were kids and being sick, I guess I absorbed her fear as I feel the same now. It's not just that I think it's disgusting, I just can't handle it and feel so anxious.
Hope your son will get better Bonaduz!
@KM - this 'held back for moderation' thing happend to me too! What's up with THAT? I didn't write anything out of the ordinary!
@ bonaduz Thank you re my dog
@ Mimi, Teddy's cancer, while terminal, is stable as of yesterday. Decent white cell and red cell count numbers. Poor guy does toss his cookies on occasion though. Good thing I have a strong stomach. But, I agree vomiting is terrible. I'm fortunate to not have that automatic gag response to it or the sound of someone getting ill. Working in ambulances and emergency rooms, back in the day, and motherhood cured me of the squick factor on every bodily fluid. At some point I've been hit. Tis easier when it's a loved one as opposed to say a homeless gentleman who is dying, though.
@Mimi - my son is already 11, so I don't have to clean up after him anymore! He made it to the bathroom in time :-D
It's different if you are a parent. Before I had children (that really irritate me sometimes!! LOL @KM) I was the same way. Arrrrghh! But now it doesn't bother me anymore, even with other people. There you go - everything can or will change according to the circumstances and a person can get used to (almost) everything, I had to learn! :-)
Loving Patrick is easy for us, because he is a TV character. Agree 100%! In real life, I'm not so sure...
and also PJ is fiction, he's not in my life so it's easy to love him of course..
I havent trown up in twenty years!! I hate it so much I keep it all inside when I feel sick... off topic I know
hello KM! how is Theodore John doing?
Bonaduz ahhhhhhh I hate vomit, when I see someone sick I run away as far as I can, I know it's silly though.
of course I understand, I had to let go of many friends too because we were not on the same wavelength anymore. What I mean is, I love PJ despite some his bad actions, and like KM says, it's the same for everyone around, we all find other irritating at some point, and the more we're at peace with our own person, the more we are with others too, that's why it's not a cliché to say "love yourself", it is at the base of everything else.
@Km Good morning. You just said it sooo much better. Glad doggie is ok.
Oh, I guess Family Day is deleyed - one kid is throwing up!
@Mimi - hi there! Eye candy, that's what it is!
I do agree with you about friends beeing friends, BUT - there are situations, when you as a person have to stand up for your believes and your morals and maybe have to let a (presumably) good friend go! I'm all for loyalty, don't misunderstand me, but...it can (has) happen!
