3 day old Friday

I know it's Monday, but dammit, it's Friday Five!

1. If you had the chance to meet someone you've never met, from the past or present, who would it be? Roald Amundsen, the first man to the North and South Poles. Ihave read so much about him, but want to see if he was as ornery as everyone says he was. Or? Jon Stewart.

2. If you had to live in a different century, past or future, which would it be? The late Victorian and Edwardian era, in England. Or the 1920s.

3. If you had to move anywhere else on Earth, where would it be? Oh, that's an easy one. Oslo, Norway.

4. If you had to be a fictional character, who would it be? Curious George, because who doesn't want to be a space monkey?

5. If you had to live with having someone else's face as your own for the rest of your life, whose would it be? Emma Thompson's, because she's gorgeous and expressive, and I'm so not.

So, Mom and Estelle were in town to attend the niece's 2nd birthday party and see our new place. The days before their visit is always more excuciating than the real thing (not to downplay the excruciating pain that these visits can offer), because I work myself up in a frenzy about what stupid, inane, mean and ridiculous things Estelle could do or say.

Although she did say and do some terribly odd and disturbing things. She made derogatory comments about Finns, Koreans, Vietnamese, Philipinos and "that Asian-blend woman on Changing Rooms." She was visibly distrought at the attention the two year old birthday girl was getting. She talked incessantly. About what, you ask? Whatever. It. Was. Non. Stop. If other people were having a discussion that she in no way could contribute to, she would mumble under her breath. Constantly.

I should reiterate. She felt threatened by a two year old.

Trevor Dunnigan thinks it terribly unfair that I should be going to therapy for the 20 years inflicted on me so far. Clearly, she is the distrubed one.
