The Hatch

Todd and I call my home office in the basement “The Hatch.” Cracks me up.


I Didn’t Even Know I Wanted It Until It Was On My Finger

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

I just spent an hour on hands and knees, scouring the floor for the diamond from my engagement ring. The big middle one, of course. Little side guys are still intact. I am pretty sure that I had it this morning, because i think i would have noticed the empty setting, or it would have caught on something.

I did laundry this morning and seem to recall feeling a pull on the ring. Noticed it missing not long after. Stood, gaping at my own finger, the missing diamond as shocking as if my whole finger had just been amputated.

Just unfolded, gently shook out, and refolded every piece of laundry I folded this morning. Had kids down on all fours searching for “shiny things.” Checked the soles of everyone’s shoes to make sure no one stepped on it and picked it up in their shoe.

Cried on the phone with my sister.

Called Todd to tell him. Got pretty choked up.

Basically, I am freaking out.

I am not vain. I don’t give a shit how many carats the thing is, how brilliant it is. I never even cared a whit about having a fucking shiny rock until Todd surprised me with one. But now it is one of my most prized possessions. I will never forget the night Todd gave it to me and asked me to spend my life with him, sweat pouring down his forehead, kneeling in front of me. I will never forget showing it to my Grandma Palmer, and her suddenly coming out of her Alzheimer’s fog, and with tears in her eyes, looking at me and gripping my hand hard in the way she always did, and whispering to me, “Cherish this.”

And now I have lost it, and I know it is stupid to feel bereft at the loss of a rock, but I am. I am heartbroken.

You Are Sun

You have a past history of being secretive and deceptive.

You’re the type of person who will protect yourself at all costs.

While you can be crafty when you need to, you are usually giving, friendly, and likable.

You truly care for other people, and you are very sensitive.

People tend to underestimate you. You seem like a fragile flower, but you’re not.

You are gutsy and clever. You have a way of getting what you want without anyone noticing.

Who Are You on LOST?
Via Mostly Muppet, who posted a great summary of the recent Lost episodes. And no, i don’t think I’m a Sun, but maybe I am. . .

"Lost"-Style Anti-Stem Cell Research Commercial

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Has anyone else see the Georgia Right to Life ad running the last few days? The one that I watched for about 20 seconds and actually thought was one of those faux commercials they show during Lost? I thought it was a Lost commercial!

Those fuckers. I think i even rewound the DVR to view it again.

I couldn’t find it on YouTube, either. I hate trickery in advertising. But it was some funny stuff. They even had the Japanese-looking guy in the lab coat!
