"I always wanted to be somebody, but I should have been more specific." - Jane Wagner

Easter Day - no I did not go to church like I should have - I pulled weeds and did taxes, not just my taxes but other peoples taxes too!

So I have moved my domain to bloghosts. I was going to go ahead and pay typepad but then I found this bloghosts thing and they said they would install movable type for me. We will see if I am smart enough to figure it out from there. So far bloghosts has been pretty quick to respond. But I will still have to figure out how to get started with this whole thing. We'll see.

In other notes, I read today on MSN that women are still making less than men. Unless you are in a non-traditional job like dentists or airline pilot. Than you can expect to make 150% over a lifetime than a woman in a traditional career. Hmmm, still waiting on that one!

2004 Race has begun!
Well it took a month, but the 2004 race in my family had begun. If you have read the previous posts you would know that my brother M. was the hands down winner of "How much more can I screw up my life" contest for 2003. But I believe we have a much more interesting year shaping up for 2004. As I said before it had been very quiet on the step-sister front for some time. But no more. We have a strong lead right out of the gate! My youngest step-sister J. had moved in with a relatively stable man and had started to even talk about college. Well the idiot that she spawned a child with got out of prison on drug dealing charges and I guess she is shacking up with him again. And although her father rescued her from a bad situation and let her and her child live with him and my mother for a year and a half while she tried to get her act together, he, according to her, "should stay out of her business". He does have a slight opinion on the matter. Well I will write more details later but I thought I would share this new development.

My website
I think I need to update my web design. Probably move to doing it with movable type.

christmas came and went with no further advancements in our competition. no new entries either.

Even though I was throughly prepared for Christmas, I gave the wrong gift to my aunt and now don't have one for queenie and I left my stepmom's present behind. I am glad its over and am looking forward to taking my niece to her first gymanstic lesson on Friday.

My competitive brothers
For those of you who are not familar with my family, I have 2 younger brothers, one 2 years younger and the other by 6. Every so often - say every 2 years - they both seem to be competing for stupidest person in the world. I don't know if it is the planetary alignment or what but they both seem to spiral out of control around the same time. One starts spinning and like 2 tops that hit eachother - they both whirl away in opposite but equally destructive paths. Now don't get me wrong - every one has hard times, unemployment, illness and the like. But I am talking about their specific idiotic choices that would be obvious to most that, "If I do this it will make my life alot more harder than it is already".

For this end of the year tournament of mental deficiency I am going to have to claim M. the winner. While E. gains double points for not learning from past experience, plus the other bonus points for details of the situation, M. has clearly beat him out. M. has decided to self-implode in every area of his life. From nearly getting fired from work to destroying his marriage, plus burning every bridge of those who have helped him M. has truly outshined E. in this battle of who will drive Mom to jump off a bridge first. The amazing thing is M.'s late entry into the compettition - only in the last 10 days - and yet he has beat E. out by 1000 points. M. gets triple points for his selfish and disturbing behavior because he was able to create all this turmoil within the course of a week!
That is going to be very tough to beat M.!

I guess I won't claim the competition over until after the holidays, there has got to be some other blow-up with all this family togetherness. Maybe a step-sister or two would like to enter (it has been quiet in that camp for awhile)? It is usually only a 2 person competition but I will make an exception because it is Christmas.

Just so we are clear:
E. has 250 points (50 bonus points for the WHO part)
M. has 1250 points (50 bonus points for doing this 3 days after closing on a house)
Points are scored as follows: 100 points for every stupid thing that brings the response "He did WHAT!? To WHO!?"
