Irwin's

So who does the world revolve around, anyway?

Probably not good at all that being without cable puts me in a rotten mood. Nothing gets under my skin quite as much as the sense of being thwarted. There's a lot of pride behind that.

Remember Friends? Well, imagine the gang doing the same thing, but with their small children (who have likely never heard the word "no") running around, squealing at frequencies that make dog's cringe, and you've just pictured the scene this morning at Irwin's. I think my Bobo neighbors love their children, but aren't really willing to see their lives and habits changed for them (except in ways that are "enriching" and "rewarding"). So long weekend mornings lingering at the coffee shop aren't cut back; the coffee shop instead becomes a playground for a couple of hours and we call it "community." It takes a village, you know—especially if the Bobos are going to continue to feel entitled to having it all. They have lattés to sip before filing back into their SUVs, after all.

(Honestly, it doesn't bother me so much and is occasionally kind of cute. My self-centeredness just happens to be colliding with theirs.)

I keep fighting with the feeling that I've completely screwed up my life.

The end of all the strivings of the human race: to produce a generation more self-centered than anyone before us could possibly imagine.
"I keep fighting with the feeling that I've completely screwed up my life."

I think I know what you mean.

welcome to my world....


you know we take Alex with us almost everywhere, and while we dont let him run around, i wonder if others think the same thing....well we do let him run around in Fuel(local all night coffeehouse/bar/hangout) but, then, there are teens and 20somethings doing the same....

and how do you know if you are not changing to spite your kids, or if you are truly just trying to make them a integral part of your world....i need to ponder that...
I dobn't get it. Why did your cable get cut?
A truck ran through it.

I'm starting to get the sense I'd have to rewrite that whole entry for you to understand it.
Oooooooooh, so it is just temporarily down.
