So, this is the thing about Johnny.

He's one of my older cousins, and I haven't seen him sense I was very small. All I really remember about him was that he was wearing white socks and they were dirty.

I'm really sad about this (the dying not the socks), and it's not really because I miss him, it's because I'll never get to know him enough to miss him now. I had managed to meet all of my other older cousins for real finally a few years ago, but I'll never get to really meet him in more than a "Aren’t I a really cute toddler" sort of sense. I'm sad about that.

And I'm sad because last time I saw Micah he said "I guess next time I see you it'll probably be a funeral." It was funny because it was true and I don't get to see Micah too much because he lives in Hawaii and I do like to see him but... I didn't want the funeral to be his brother's.

Here's a story.

Micah found out about Johnny from Jessie (I'm totally guessing on that spelling) who is Johnny's wife. He called Tonya and told her because she isn't actually a member of the family, but he didn't have anyone else's number. He got a bottle of something highly alcoholic, went to the beach, got very drunk, and decided he should tell Ben (also Micah’s brother). He went home and wrote Ben an e-mail: "Ben, John is dead." This morning he woke up and called Dawn (their mother) and asked if she had herd from Ben yet. Upon a negative reply, he said that she should probably call Ben, preferably before he checked his e-mail.

Tonya, meanwhile, had called my aunt Rachel to ask if there was anything she could do. "About what?" Rachel wanted to know. Tonya was obviously the most informed because she is not actually a member of the family, but is everybody's friend.

Dawn called my uncle Gene to let him know. "Iraq?" he said, "Sense when has Johnny been in Iraq?"

Jessie has been duking it out with the Army in the mean time. Johnny hated being in the Army. She does not think it would be particularly respectful to him to have him buried in his uniform in Arlington. She wants him to be buried in Tennessee; they were going to move there when he was out.

We're not dysfunctional, we're just different-functional.

And I'm not sure what to do.

I less than eight hours I will be on my way to KENTUCKY(!) for a mission trip. I'm not so looking forward to spending hot hot days rebuilding a house, but I'm totally looking forward to the FUN TIMES I'm going to have! As you can probably tell, I'm pretty excited about this, but it does mean I would be about much till next Sunday afternoon or so. But.



I would also like to take this opportunity to say "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!" because there’s only a week till my birthday, and I’m pretty excited about that too.

Oi Love.

a silly thing.

If you read this, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a completely made up and fictional memory of you and me.

It can be anything you want - good or bad - it just has to be fake.

When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your LJ and be surprised (or mortified) about what people don't actually remember about you.

So, the info bar at the Buzz's web sight has said they've been playing Pearl Jam's Life Waisted for the past two hours. This is simply not true, and it's starting to get more than a little annoying. HARFHARFHARF.

Oh Snap.

So I just got up about an hour and a half ago. I think this is the most sleeping in I've done in years, if you don't count when I've stayed up all night for events. In light of my alarming lack of time today, I have compiled the following list, to be completed in order.

To Do, 18 July 2006Réduire )

Items 7-9 can occur while item 6 is occurring, just as long as I don't forget about item 6.

Also, I will eat lunch somewhere in there.

Oh Snap.

So, I know I haven't been around much lately, but I still think this is pretty important.

For people who like LJ just the way it is...

So Yes.

For lucypevensie, incase you haven’t herd, or anyone interested in the insane goings on of my extend family; updates from Pittsburgh:

Grandma's last day of work should be at the beginning of April somewhere.  After that she has a hernia operation, and after that she's going to Nova Scotia or something like that with Dawn, Rebecca, and Zachary.  No one is sure why, but Grandma plans on getting some travel brochures.

Zachary, meanwhile, has moved in to his own apartment, which came as a bit of a shock to Melissa.   Apparently he's been saying he'd gotten one for a while now, but no one really believed him.  No one knows where it is, either, except Matthew and Everett who helped him move.  Micah is going to Hawaii, post haste; he either left this mourning or yesterday morning.  This also came as a bit of a shock to everyone.  He made sure Rachel had his e-mail address, but Rachel told him she might not get his e-mails because Ed likes to pretend all the e-mail is his.  This is not a conspiracy.

All of Rachel's knives have gone missing, and Grandma either put them out with the recycling when she was helping Rachel while Ed was out of town, or Melissa thought they were hers and wandered off with them when she and Karl came to brake in to the house because Rachel had locked her keys inside. Rachel offered to bring Grandma spoons when she couldn't find any, but Grandma alleges she has plenty.  After all the dishes were done and the dish pan empty, there were only three.

On a different note, I spent about three hours clearing out my inbox, and then sent my self an e-mail because it looked lonely.  It said " No new messages, check Google News for something to read" I said "But I  don't WANT to check the news!"

Also, I have no idea why the extry head is showing up next to lucy, but if you click it, it always seems to be a link to exactly where you are.

Oi Love.

So, even though it's no where near Christmas, I put my name in on a whim, and wasn't planning on posting it at all, but it docked me points for giving kissing_athelas a Dutch Oven, but I was definitely talking to someone the other day who really wanted to find a good Dutch Oven.
