I have a load of things running through my head today so bear with me. First off I would like to say Google, yes Google, the Google, you suck. I know I live in England and you want me to use google.co.uk. but I want to use just regular old Google. Not that the UK version is bad, but when I go shopping, I want to see things in dollars not pounds. Things sometimes are just not geared towards those who live in a particular country, but deal with the financial system of another. I have had this problem with iTunes as well. Because I live in England, I generally hear the music that is popular over here. Go figure. However iTunes US doesn't have half the songs that I want to download. I tried to switch to the UK version of iTunes, but because my bank technically has a US address not a UK address (even though there is a branch here on the base in the UK) it won't let me. This means my favorite song right now, I can't download it. I have to go to youtube every single time I want to listen to it. Pain in the rear I tell ya.
LaLa got invited to her first birthday party here. A little boy in her class is having his birthday at indoor playground over in one of the neighboring towns. I am really excited. It is the first time she is really going to get to play with kids her own age outside of school since we got here. Of course she plays with Domino's kids, but her youngest is a year older than LaLa and her older one is in middle school. The oldest is really in more of a babysitter/older sister type roll. Not that she minds because she has fun doing things with LaLa. The younger one is a boy though and ewww girls are dumb and gross. Yeah. I hear ya on that one buddy. Just keep that in your head until you are old enough to get married and are out of your mother's house. I am sure she will appriciate not having to worry about you as a teenager.
Have I ever mentioned that LaLa is passive aggressive? Yes, she is the queen of passive aggressiveness. If I say "hurry up" she slows down. Every. Single. Time.
I really want to go to a blogging conference like BlogHer, but there is no way I could afford the airfare. It is too bad that most of the "good" ones are in the USA. Would a blogging conference in London be too much to ask? Then I could take the train down, get to relax, not fly across an ocean...wishful thinking.
