Ripley's Believe It or Not!

This past week was a rollercoaster. Did a lot of things and had a couple of scares. But all-in-all, everything was pleasant. Here's what happened, in no particular order...

Reunited with a old friend of mine. She was practically my sister. We both had such insane lives, which is why we lost touch. Our respective families had such issues and problems, we never had enough time to keep our relationship going. But it was so very good to hear from her again. I love her so much ^_^ That made me insanely happy.

Bob purchased a laptop exactly like mine, so we could be laptop buddies. Yes, yes, we are THAT cute, no? :P Also, we bought matching webcams. So, even if we're in separate rooms... we can see each other... God, did I just admit that?! T-T hee-hee

Went to Ripley's Believe It or Not! and Wax Museum. That trip was an absolute blast! Saw all kinds of freaky things and took tons TONS of pictures with our new digicam. About 400 pictures. LOL :D It was so cool. Can't wait to go back.

Saw V for Vendetta. Loved it. It's different from the comic in a lot of ways, but it had to be modernized. And V had to be humanized. Alan Moore is just ticked that he signed away the rights to DC. The movie actually toned down how truly horrible the government and the Chancellor were in the comic. The concentration camps, for example, were glossed over somewhat.

My mom received her results from the dermatologist. She doesn't have skin cancer. Thank god. I was slightly worried. Well, very worried. But I just felt like it would all turn out alright, and it did. Bob's father was diagnosed with prostate cancer early in our relationship. He survived but we always worry. My uncle has inoperable lung cancer and we basically have to just wait for him to die. It's... hard to feel powerless.

As Ginga has reminded me, my brother's wife is pregnant. They barely know each other, haven't even been married a year yet and now she's pregnant? Geez. And this kind of thing happened once before. But the woman my brother was dating had a miscarriage. Whew. I don't even know what to say, think or do. I'm just going to sit back and keep my mouth shut. It's not my business. He has enough to deal with. Hopefully everything will be fine.

Everything will be ok. Everything is as it should be, no matter what. We do what we can, the best that we can. Take care everyone! Hope you have a nice week.

So sorry to hear about all the family turmoil, Toni. It''s tough to go through all those rough times... your loving and marvelously sappy relationship with Bob will help you through! ^_^ (And did I mention that I LOVED sappy?? heehee!)

And isn''t the Ripley''s BION museum just TOO much fun?? We took a quick family trip to one of those in Niagra Falls before school started up, and the boys ran from one display to another yelling, "WHOA! Look at THIS one!" heeheehee! It was a blast. They still bring up things they saw there. Goood times. I''d love to see your favorite pic or two from that trip... sounds like you might have taken one or two or fifty-eight worth sharing!! ~_^
