money, gucci, fendi, babies  
So, all of you know I have been lamenting (ok, bitching) about having no research funding, no guaranteed job prospects, and $15K a year salary. But, this week my hubbs and I had a fantastic revelation. It costs like 100K to raise a kid to 18, and insanely more to pay for private liberal arts colleges that end up doing nothing but providing much needed bisexual and drug experiences (believe me, I KNOW). So, compared to the thousands and thousands you breeders out there are going to spend, what's a $2000 fendi bag, or an HDtv? So, as of this moment (and even more so when I actually get a real job), Ed and I are officially spending our non-existent kids' inheritance. And for all of you that want to judge me on buying $300 shoes, at least I am not breeding another ugly American that is going to drain the world's resources and perpetuate my well-established sense of capitalist entitlement. And, of course, make the awful experience of flying coach even more unbearable.

Oh, so here's my big baby news -- I brought home my first Manolos today! Yes it was hard squeezing them on, and I spent many hours in nordstrom's with my feet in the air, but it was all worth it when I stared into their beautiful suede lining. And I can't tell you the maternal separation anxiety I felt when the shoe man took them away to waterproof them. It was like a piece of myself had been ripped out. But now they are home and safely stored away in their individual felt bags.

You can all congratulate me by buying me something off of my registries--anything at gucci, pucci, prada,hermes, fendi, bottega, and ferragamo (although I will accept the occasional Dolce, YSL, and Chloe).

And those of you worried about Ed's stake in all this, he will be getting any electronic stuff he desires, his own music studio, and a bookcase full of porn (and of course, a cigar--which may or may not actually be a cigar).

I'm ecstatic to hear about your new little addition. You knew those hours with your feet in the air would pay off!

I love the way you write. Hope you enjoy the cigar.

Thanks! I love the way you write too.
So I have been asking and asking you if you are going to be around when I am in town and you haven't responded. That better not mean that you are working most of the time!

I thought I told you... I'm on reserve. This means I'm living day by day, not know what the next will bring me. =(

This situation begins today and continues for about six weeks. I'm on standby today from 05:00-17:00, and tomorrow from 06:00-18:00, and after that there's nothing on my roster.

wow. that is sucky, but maybe it will turn out for the best and you will be able to hang out with me tons. I sure hope so. I can't believe I am there so soon!
