The Weekly Wonderings #100

1. Do people really think the "funny" pictures and sayings making the email rounds are worth forwarding to other people?

3. No, they're not.

4. I would permit one exception to that blanket statement: if it comes from my sister, it is something I want to read.

5. Sister of said fame is visiting this weekend, causing disputes over who gets to have her stay in his/her room.

9. Now that I think about it, they all kind of act as if their real mother has come when she's around.

10. I do believe I'm being tossed over for the fun aunt. Ain't that always the way?
