    I read somewhere that you should judge a person on how they treat animals and children. Well DH is not particularly good with either

    Well, my aunt absolutely hates animals but she's one of the nicest people I know. She does love kids, though.

    Finished watching. Only one person I wanted to see go through who didn't. Kate, you're watching tomorrow so I won't identify.

    Have a good weekend, everyone! We're going to our house in L.A. to pick up furniture we left there and to San Diego to visit my old friends (one being my grumpy old roommate I told you I chatted with a couple weeks ago). Sure could use the 3-day break. Today was a 10-hr workday for me. Oy!

    I'm on Team Love-To-Camp, m'self, but not anywhere near a car. I prefer to backpack in a few miles to really get out to the middle of nowhere. The dogs love it too, obviously, and are good bear repellants. The Sierras are awe-inspiring.

    I think that's true in regards to people that are abusive to children or animals. I know plenty of people that don't like animals, or children even for themselves, but they're not horrible to either when exposed to them.

    I hate to say anything good about my boss right now, but he's one that never wanted kids but he is really good with them.

    Have fun!!

    I've never been that far out camping...usually the car is within sight. I've gotten to where I prefer to go camping in a camper now, but backpacking sounds like a lot of fun.

    In fact, my original plan for AZ was to go hiking/camping on some trail with Shannon myself...leaving the kids and dh behind in NY. Then she started talking about bringing her gun to protect us from illegals and I lost my nerve! And, she really did want to meet my kids too.

    They play it toward the end, when the judges are considering who to save with the wild card.

    I don't want to say anything until I know everyone's seen it but they're about to do the wildcard and I'm pretty happy with who they picked for the top 10.

    I don't watch American Idol so I can't join this conversation.
    But I do love to camp. Growing up, we never went to Disney World. We went camping for weeks. I have so many great memories...

    I have always thought that it's a good thing that different people are attracted to all sorts of different kinds.

    This morning I think that I will be working for a bit on the marriage section of my paperwork and get to write about how DH and I met and what attracted me to him in the first place. I like this topic much better than trying to write about my own strengths and weaknesses!

    For me it was Kendra. I just don't care for Ashton like the judges like and am so so on Naimia.

    I was surprised they didn't save the karaoke singer...I still don't particularly like any of the girls yet. My 2 faves are Scotty and James.

    So much does depend on how you grew up. We never went camping (mom said that was NOT a vacation for her and just made her usual life more difficult to come up with meals). Instead we did go to Disneyworld, Disneyland, Vegas, NYC, San Francisco.....and we drove everywhere from WI. I have such great memories of those family vacations. And I still much rather drive to our destination than fly.
    DH likes camping well enough and did that growing up....before me he had hardly ever left WI. But if I said, do you want to go to Disney or camping...Disney wins. Vegas or camping, Vegas wins. His next idea of a trip once we have money and the vacation time is going to be Washington DC.

    I need to see more performances to get an idea of favs. I know I have some that I like better than others just because I don't usually go for that style of music.

    I have no desire to go to Vegas at all. The only thing I'd remotely like to see is the Beatles cirque du soleil thing they have.

    I didn't like Clint...he might have been a good singer but he didn't have the presence and he seemed too nervous and unstable to me. I'm glad they saved Ashthon. I like James the best.

    I don't like camping. I think a lot of it depends on where you are camping. Texas in the summer is humid and 100 degrees, and sleeping in a tent is simply suffocating. Plus the wildlife - scorpions in your shoes, rattlesnakes love to snuggle up in sleeping bags with sleeping people to get warm, water moccasins in the swimming holes, tarantulas everywhere. I don't remember getting a lot of sleep on those camping trips. Plus Dad wasn't good with bringing food. One trip he brought water, marshmallows and squirrel stew.

    I might like camping but I don't know. LOL
    DH won't do it. He gets too nervous being out in the open. We slept overnight in a camper at my family reunion once, and he was worried about that.

    omg!

    We don't really have those critters to worry about. Maybe black bears and some harmless snakes...and of course ugly spiders. The spiders freak me out, but not enough to thwart my love of camping.

    I love everything about it...the bonfires and smores, cooking eggs over an open fire in the morning, the social aspect of camping in a park. I like exploring what each park has to offer, the quietness and solitude if you desire. Just everything!!

    Okay, the bolded area is hilarious !

    I also agree with everything though you said about camping. It is way too hot and I enjoy air conditioning. I love my bed, any bed is better than a bag on the hard ground IMO.

    I have tasted squirrel, opossom, and rabbit stew already and don't need to go camping for that experience. Oh, forgot racoon as well. My great-grandfather, who was my only grandfather figure in my life, used to set traps for them in his backyard in a very nice neighborhood in Toledo and whenever he caught them, I got to scruch up my face while he killed and skinned them. It didn't frighten me but all animals, especially rodent looking animals, are nasty looking all pink and bloody without fur. The stews were good though. He grew up dirt poor and said that all the meat he ever ate was squirrel, opossom, rabbit, and coons. For holidays sometimes they would get ham or chicken or turkey, but very rarely and he was just used to having free meat LOL! He once told me that he was able to save and buy a few houses and make money when he moved from TN to OH because he didn't have to buy any groceries. He knew how to grow food and catch small game and lived on that with his uncle when he first moved to Toledo in the 1920s.

    DH thinks I'm crazy in my dislike of camping, but heh....I just like modern conveniences. I do like hiking and solitude in nature, just not overnight. It doesn't help that here in GA the pollen count is in the 3000 range quite often in spring and is pretty high in autumn as wel. I would never go camping in the summer because it is just way too hot.

    Um yeah the idea of rodent stews...not appealing at all.
    We don't have too many scary animals here...maybe some bears in June. And ticks. I'm in a pretty high lyme disease area. I'm still not sure I would even go in my backyard at night....it's pretty dark if you go off the deck and there is a big field and woods behind me. And we aren't fenced in.

    Chrissy Vegas isn't for everyone. But we had a great time....saw something like 4-5 shows, checked out shops and all the different casinos, rode the light rail or monorail thing a lot, checked out the lights at night and did some gambling. But than my DH loves the sounds of a casino and he likes to play roulette. Only thing is next time we are not going in July.....116 is just too much for me.
    We don't do a big vacation every year so it will probably be 10 years before we go to Vegas again.....but we look forward to it!

    Uggg.....Dh and I have doctor appts early this afternoon to get the health form filled out and labs ordered as part of the adoption paperwork. I really dislike going to the doctor. I am really hoping that she doesn't make us take our clothes off.

    Me too.

    I hope your appointment is painless Jennifer.

    I have a meeting with Jesi's school this afternoon at 3. I'm also doing a Win7 upgrade and just now transferring the user's data onto the machine. I might have to come back

    I just applied for a DJ position on an online radio station that plays NKOTB and related musicians. It took me a few takes to get audio samples of myself that I liked, but I'm proud that I did it. I'd be shocked if I got a show, but it was fun to go out of my comfort level!

    That's cool, Kate; sounds like a fun job!

    I love camping but my DH is a city boy, so I've never been with him, but me and my cousins and sister used to camp out in the woods behind our houses all the time when we were teenagers....and there were bears in those woods...we were very naive! When my boys get a bit older, I'm sure I'll convince DH to go camping; there are some great places in the UK to camp out.

    Y'all, I cut my hair even shorter today...please, tell me it looks OK? This is the shortest I've ever had my hair in my life...I love it at the minute but then I keep looking at myself and thinking 'what did YOU do to your hair?' lol
