Dream of conjoined septuplets / NINE missed calls?!

February 15, 2007

I had a weird dream that started with me being jealous of what treats my brother got in a fruit market. My mom was going to give him his own cruise and stuff, for goodness sakes! So I stomped on a whole bunch of raspberries / strawberries / other such fruit before heading to the […]

Confetti hearts / Airport dreams / Sextuplets?! HERE?! NO WAY!

January 8, 2007

I’m listening to the Doors since it is Robby Krieger’s birthday today! Thank goodness that Mozilla Firefox’s “Find” feature now searches text boxes! It saves me some annoyance in trying to find things in (for instance) an “Edit Entry” box, what with the length of SOME of these posts. 😉 Sara W. (sparkle_bint) got my […]

Various random observations / memories about kids, Wikipedia, and multiple births

August 30, 2006

I remember kids in elementary school named Aura, Mitchell, and Sebastian. Wonder what they’re doing now, heh. (I also remember a counsellor I had named Peggy, and a kid at the pool named Larisa) After reading Facts About Multiples some more this afternoon, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’d definitely NOT like to have […]

Septuplets, weird phone lines, Eric H.’s phone, loitering, Corey, recipes, technology, tarot cards

But sometimes I wonder… My phone lines were being weird tonight because the one by the computer worked until I punched in the wrong digits of what I thought was my brother’s number. (one sib’s cell phone […]

Editing tags, OCDL, multiples

May 21, 2006

I decided that I was tired of all the “0 uses” on my LJ tags page where those tags were actually used once on previously-filtered entries. Originally, I thought of deleting them… but then I figured I could add those tags to pre-existing entries: one entry for each letter of the alphabet where “0 uses” […]

Story, for context: Jackson will be couple’s 15th J-name child A US couple who have 14 children with names all beginning with J, are expecting a 15th child. […]

Facts About Multiples stuff

March 25, 2003

This whole long post is inspired by a line I was reading just now: “a woman in the USA gives birth to octuplets, nineplets.. or if they can even find a word for it.. 10 kids upwards.. ” (and for those of you who are wondering how I can make a long post out of […]
