Riversharks are like river rats.

Its been weird lately. I have been busy. Working 2 jobs and getting paid for one. The mommy job has its own payment. But after 2 and a half year I finally conceded to the fact that I need to start hanging out with other kids. I do this for 2.5 yo's sake, but its starting to get fun. Who would have thought I would be so suburban. So I now find cool people with kids or cool people who are watching other people's kids and I go random places with them. Bonus points if they have creatures.

So here's some pictures of us at the Riversharks Game. What the heck is a Rivershark? Its like a River Rat. But instead of a rat, its a shark. Got it?

The kids below are having fun. My oddball kid is off to the side. Probably because he had been grwoling like a monster at the other kids all day and they thought he was weird. He's a bit of a Shane Botwin, but hopefully without the murderous tendencies. The bigger kid in the photo is 5 and told his mom that 2.5 yo scared him. What a little freak 2.5 yo is.

oh the players saw me behind the bullpen and called me "hot headband girl." #winning

We have friends who talk about important stuff. Like Snooki

So we all know (and love love or secretly love) the Jersey Shore. This will not be the first or last post about it.

But we know people. Who know people at Fox. Who know people who know Snooki.

Let's hear it for the boys. And the oompa loompas.

Single Speed Road Bike - $40 (Silverlake)

Not sure what year it is, but it's in amazing condition. I road it to Spaceland last night and saw this experimental Jazz, rock fusion band that blew my mind. The drummer was autistic. You've never heard of them probably but they're basically the best band out there right now.

The bike road smoothly there, then afterwards I climbed the hill up Silverlake to have a glass of wine with my friend Abrahim, who's from Egypt and we talked at length about what's going on in the middle east. The bike climbed the hill easily. I have a lot of friends from tons of different ethnicities, and I ride to each of their houses on this bike no problem.

I took a picture of the bike with this polaroid camera I bought from a thrift store near my house, but my friend Johannes thought it was a really cool picture and decided to use it in an art project he's doing in his live/work loft space downtown. Btw, it's a totally cool thrift store. Apparently they advertise on TV but I don't own a television so I've never seen their ads.

The only reason I'm selling the bike is because I'm most likely going to go back packing through south america for the next six months and I'm trying to raise money for my trip. My parents offered to pay, but I don't accept money from them except for things like rent and food, so I'm going to be roughing it. If you're interested, email me back and I'll meet you at a Pho restaurant that's in between where we live.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
Love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don't.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy.
They just promised it would be worth it.

Friends are like balloons.
Once you let them go, you can't get them back.

A Letter to my Tree Friend...

So this blog has come to a startling halt.  The last post was about 9 months ago when it was more about "practicing making babies" than it was about actually creating organs in your mere uterus.

Yes, thats right.  Both bats are now going to be mommies.  And let's face it, just when you thought our nights of staying up past 3am were over, we realize they have just begun.

Thank god they are both boys, and we do not have mini female satan spawn running around.  However, ladies born in the 2006-20?? range, please beware of these sweet endearing and too smart for their own good specimen.  All I can say, is that in the last 2.5 years, my life has changed dramatically.  I have traded in mini skirts for pencil skirts and late nights at bars for early mornings at the zoo.  But every last second has been worth it.

So the last thing this is going to become is a mommy blog.  But let's face it, damn it, we're mommies.  And if we can do this we can do anything.  So welcome back bat friends to our forum to talk to each other.  If you enjoy it tell a friend.  If not, bug off fockers.

To my tree friend, I love you so much, and can't wait to share this experience with you.

Bat Fact: Male bats have the highest rate of homosexuality of any mammal.
