Pictures of me and some of my kids and other stuff  
So first off, Griffon just had a birthday!!! He's 10.

He's already asking for his first motorcycle.

He is definitely my son!!!

Under the cut are a couple of pictures of me and Griffon and Donovan and Rowan. We've been horsing around with Alex's iMac and its camera thing:

This is me, Griffon and Donovan:

Yeah, I know, it's a good thing i have a good personality. LOL!

And this is Alex and Donovon:

In other news, I did that brain meme thing that I snagged from firehead30 and fuck, just about everybody I think, and this is what I came up with:

Your Brain is Purple

Of all the brain types, yours is the most idealistic.
You tend to think wild, amazing thoughts. Your dreams and fantasies are intense.
Your thoughts are creative, inventive, and without boundaries.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking of fictional people and places - or a very different life for yourself.

So I've been writing the next chapter of my Mirror series and even though it's all figured out, writing it so I can keep the canon characters in character yet having them react in the situations I put them in, well...it just makes my purple brain hurt.

So anywho, I'll be posting more story tonight!

I'm off to buy a cage and live food for a Python for Alex's boyfriend (she bought him a Python, because you know, nothing says 'I Love You' like a rather large snake that eats mice!!!)

All of you creative wonderful types.

You look so adorable with Griffon and Donovan!

Alex and Rowan have their hands on their heads because they are thinking...ohhh mom wants to do chain saw art again!!!

Python's and love...huh, well you know....love is a many splendid thing.

Thank you! I feel weird because my hair's all pulled back.

And yep - it's the old 'aw mom, don't even start thinking about chainsaw art again!!!'

Of course, there's always, 'mom has a chainsaw' and then the head shake.

Don't worry - I won't take up chainsaw carving - I'll just create with my stories (since I've got that whole purple brain thing going).

How can you possibly have long hair?! In my mental photo, your hair is short and a little, uh, *spike*-y. :) *adjusts mental picture. ok, got it.* lol

I'm so glad you posted the photos. They're wonderful. Here's hoping the python will live at the bf's house, not yours. And can't you buy already-kilt mice? *iz wuss*
Maria: Bad Mommyslave_o_spike on March 24th, 2007 09:07 pm (UTC)
Yes, the python is living at Brandin's house!!!!

In fact, it hasn't made an appearance here at all...just like I said it would not!

You can buy frozen mice - but they were all like - ewwwww - and I said, 'oh, but you're okay with feeding them live ones?'

So yeah...*facepalm*

Nope - long hair - unless I decide to cut it again.

Lovely pix. :D There are a lot of purple brains around here...eeek at the snake. If it grows big enough it won't stop at mice! :D
Maria: Spike Oh Thank Godslave_o_spike on March 24th, 2007 09:15 pm (UTC)
And that's why it's staying over at the bf's house!!!

Ditto: AWMPstretfordditto on March 24th, 2007 11:38 pm (UTC)

A wise decision methinks...

Hey,nice to "see" you!
Donovan is a really cute kid.I hope the python will do not think that,too!! :)
Maria: Buffy Angel was this big...slave_o_spike on March 24th, 2007 09:16 pm (UTC)
The python will never 'see' Donovan.

It's staying at the bf's house!!!

I've got enough to deal with here at home!

Poooooor litttle micey mice
Aww you're kids are adorable!
Oh! I can't wait for more of the fic. I just read up to the last one a few minutes ago and of course I totally am freaking out! I want to kick Brian's ass, the not real Brian, but at the same time I don't fucking blame him. Maybe when he gets back to his world he can find his Justin. *begs* I hope buying mice that you are going to feed to a mean snake works out 'well'? You are soooo mean. Heheh.
Watching figure skating but I'd rather be reading more fic!
Later mice killer, Rory
(actually mice scare the shit outta me, I was bitten by one at a cabin, and snakes, they scare me too, but I haven't been bitten yet! So feed those fuckers to em! Cause I had to go to the ER and get my hand sewn up and get shots! Yuck)

Re: Poooooor litttle micey mice
Aww you're kids are adorable!

I got very lucky (and this is only 3 of the 5).

And LOL! You put your review of my fic in there somewhere between all the mice!

We actually purchased rats and I told them to get the frozen mice that you can buy on-line and they were, 'ewww - that's gross.'

but oh, feeding live rats to the python is okay.


Something about how the mice were frozen all curled up originaly. I don't know. I really tried to discourage her against the snake.

Oh well...

Re: Poooooor litttle micey mice
Never heard of frozen mice, that is gross. Hahah!
I still can't imagine having 5. I have my hands full with my two nephews. Who also love gross things suddenly, and Quinn, the five year old for some reason loves to sit and watch his little brother poop on the potty, how gross is that? Do kids do this? I mean, is it because he's just proud of him? Hmm... I mean he went and got a stool and a book to read to him. I'm not sure how to handle that so I just let it go on. Is that wrong? Heheh. Grasping at straws here.

Oh, sorry next update I promise to review the right way, I was just afraid if I didn't do it then, I wouldn't do it at all!

Forever, Rory

Re: Poooooor litttle micey mice
This is not uncommon for kids. They're trying to 'make themselves part of the experience.'

It's not because he's proud, he just wants to make sure he's doing it right.

Nothing's gross when it concerns anyone under the age of 8. They eat dirt!

Ergo, you must be a blue blood

Ergo, you must be royalty

Ergo, you rule!!!!

I have such strange logic....

What a beautiful family you are! :) Thanks for posting those pics!

I'm looking forward to the new chapter. I keep coming back for more... I am so your bitch! :D
Maria: BJ cuddleslave_o_spike on March 25th, 2007 02:52 am (UTC)
Your welcome! And thank you for the compliment.

you're not my bitch - you're my bi-atch! LOL! *kisses you*

BTW, hopefully another chapter tonight - I'm cleaning it up - AND - this is only 3 of my 5 kids!

Typical mother. Hiding behind her children because she knows everyone will be looking at them. I think I'm in love with Donovan. What a charmer. And, thinking Griffon is like you because he wants a motorcycle. Huhn uh. That is pure, unadulterated BOY. My guess is that Alex is the one who takes after you, I mean, how many girls give the man of their dreams a python? That takes imagination, creativity, and a weird purple brain. I think she kind of resembles you, too.
Maria: money shotslave_o_spike on March 25th, 2007 02:50 am (UTC)
Yes - Alex is so like me - only she can draw like nobody's business!

She has an amazing artistic streak. And I was a little upset by the whole python thing. I'm not sure his mother will allow that and I know it's going to cost quite a bit to keep it and I know how much he makes every other week because he works for me. But they're old enough to make this mistake on their own.

Anywho, hubby is really into motorcycles, and I gave my Ninja 250 to Alex about 4 years ago, so it's a superbike kind of family. But yeah - he is ALL BOY, that one. He plays outside even in the dark if he's playing 'soldier' or something.

And Donovan is such a charmer. Everyone just loves him!

And thanks for thinking Alex resembles me! Makes me very happy to hear that.

I love when you post pics of your sweet and fun family. :)
Maria: money shotslave_o_spike on March 25th, 2007 02:46 am (UTC)
Aww - thank you. I always wonder if I'm bothering people with them - that's why I put them behind a cut!

my2catsmy2cats on March 25th, 2007 12:28 am (UTC)
You have beautiful children.
Good idea that you won't let the snake visit,lol.

Waiting for my daily fix...
Maria: Neil Mysterious Skinslave_o_spike on March 25th, 2007 02:45 am (UTC)
Fix coming...

Nope - snake is sooo not coming over.


Thank you for the compliment.

(PS - this is only 3 out of the 5)! LOL!
