    Wow, that is insightful.

    cool

    did mine, http://timbroder.gpowered.net/2009/01/99-things/ (also trying out wordpress)

    the Mona Lisa is HIIIIGHLY overrated btw

    You don't want a baby?

    Also, let's discuss the Bible over tea sometime. Maybe at Alice's Tea Cup (there's one a half a block from my apt!).

    :) Post yours! :)

    No, I'm undecided on a baby, although slowly leaning toward wanting one way down the road. :) The two options on the list are “had a baby” and “adopt a baby” which aren't currently things I want to do or have done. :)

    It's been a LONG time since I've read the Bible, but I'm always happy to talk religion, even as a non-religious person who's more spiritual than religious, and even on that front, my spirituality often takes a back seat (not a good thing). Yay for having an Alice's Teacup so close to your apartment!! :)

    Ah, I would have pegged you as a total baby maniac, given your many posts about your new nephew. I think babies look like ET. The idea of having one really needs to grow on me, but in reality I'll hit 30 and NEED one Liz Lemon style.

  • http://brandice.net/blog brandice

    Naw… my nephew is the first baby I've really been excited about and even then I hand him off when he starts to poop or cry or do non-adorable things. I'm starting to get the itch but it's SO light and teeny at this point, I know I won't be ready until 30+.

    Plus, this will sound weird, but I want to be thinner and healthier before I put my body through all of that. Better starting point, if you know what I mean. If I start off as is, I will NOT be a cute pregnant person at all. Lol.

  • http://maybe-not.net LauraDameeks

    Doesn't sound weird at all. They say the best way to lose baby weight is to be in great shape before you get pregnant. Plus, when you're knocked up, you can maintain your same level of physical activity, you just shouldn't increase. So if you're in good shape and maintaining a high level of physical activity before you get preggers, you can keep it up and stay fit all the way through.

    All this info about pregnancy from a gal who hates babies, go figure.

  • http://brandice.net/blog brandice

    Exactly!! I want to be in really good shape so that I'm already at a level that I can maintain throughout the pregnancy and I'll be able to recover more quickly, etc. If I were to have a baby right now, I'd be enormous, unhealthy, lazy, and my body wouldn't bounce back the way it should at all.

    Glad you get it. And I hear ya, babies are pretty freaky. I'll probably always been fairly freaked out by other people's babies even after I have my own (perfect and pre-potty trained) offspring.
