Real conversation with my brother last night . . .
"You know mom and dad always said I couldn't get a mohawk because 'You live under our house and our rules and when you are 18 you can move out and do whatever you want to your hair.' Then I realized a few weeks ago, 'WHOA! I'm 23! I can go get that mohawk now!"

What is most confusing about all of this to me is that Andy had 18 12-inch liberty spikes in high school . . . living under my parent's roof . . . but is now excited that he can do what ever he wishes with his hair. WHAT?

I wanted a stereo when I was growing up. I wanted my own turn table to play my records (pretty much all Amy Grant) in my bedroom. For either Christmas or my birthday I asked for a record player. I got a radio with a tape player. A tape player. I had no tapes (at that point). Not long after my parents gave my brother a record player. Granted it was a Fisher Price one. But I was confused by it. Not I realize that they were probably the ones who were confused.

Cara, you don't know me, but I actually knew Herb...way back when we worked at Spring Hill. Anyway, Matt and Sherri are friends of ours and she always raves about your blog. So over the last couple of days I started reading it. As I read over your Anne Lamott post and saw that you said she was fucked up, I decided that if you ever come to town, we have to meet. I am the Christian Sailor as my husband puts it...I am called out on it all the time by my other friends, but when I saw your post it made me think that I am not the only one. Perhaps your not a sailor, but either way...you said fuck and it made me happy. Anyway, Sherri said that your great and that she thinks we would get along. I just thought I would say hello. Maybe you'll even see me comment once in a while now that I have formally introduced myself. I hope I don't sound like a stalker. Sorry I took up so much space on your site.

I always wanted a tv in my room growing up (no surprise) and my parents always said no because they would never see me. As a junior in high school i found a small tv in our basement not being used and just put it in my room. It was about 6 months before my mom found it, and just said screw it. It took me nearly 17 years but I had won. :) And since then I've had tv's in every room! (deprivation just fosters excessiveness.)

i wanted a mickey mouse phone for xmas when i was 7; instead i got a mighty mouse phone. i was like HELLO, i wanted a MICKEY MOUSE PHONE not MIGHT MOUSE! my mom was like, "oh close enough. it's a mouse phone." today, i have no desire to buy a mickey mouse phone despite being deprived of it... i say that mostly because i only use my cell phone. i woudn't mide a hello kitty cell phone... btw, hello kitty doesn't have a mouth.
