Just the same.

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

Hmm that actually seems nice. Its cold down here, with random showers. Yesterday, it was very cold and it started pouring down at about four and it was somewhat warm and the sun was out by 4:15!

How cold does it get at night? Does it stay cold in the morning?

Hi misheeru;

Not really, unless you are afraid of the dark. The fridge does start to stink if the power remains off.

Yuck! However, my dad makes homemade veggie soup, which makes my fridge smell funny anyway.

Have you heard about Iron Man 2? I heard it was good, do you think you'd want to see it??

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

Hah, yeah that makes sense. I heard it was every bit as good as the first.

Hey I learned something new today! I found it interesting. Did you know that old Hygrometers contained a peice of human hair attatched to a spring as one end? Its because human hair contracts and expands according to the level of humidity in the air. So they used it to move a needle and tell them how humid it was! Isn't that cool!

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

That is true. Did you know they used to use a very fine piece of wire called a cat whisker touching a piece of galena to pickup radio waves?

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

It was waaaayaay before your time.

It acted as the tuner. By touching the crystal in different spots different channels are received. In the old days it was an achievement to build your own radio receiver.

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

Not for today. People today have microcircuitry all around them . Why bother understanding anything. You know I saw a kid in a stroller with a cell phone. He couldn't use it, but his parents thought he needed one.

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

Thats insane.
The little girl I babysit sometimes is four years old and her stupid mother bought her an iPod touch! That way they can stick her in the hightchair all day and she can play with all the apps downloaded on it. I feel so bad for her.  She throws fits when her parents come to pick her up from my place. I think its because they rarely give her any real attention.

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

There it is. You actually understand that.  That's what is wrong with all those babies she has. They have plenty of material things but no one who loves them, except when there are photographers around. A four year old has no need for an Ipod. I am not sure anyone does.

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

Yeah it shows in this poor girl.

She is four and can't even speak yet. All her words come out in a jumble and she and she seems to have a hard time understanding even simple questions like, "are you hungry?".

I''m sorry, but her parents are moros. On top of it all, just about  the only things this kid will eat is chips, candy, sweets, macaroni and cheese and McDonald's.

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

That's a shame. Her parents are busy finding themselves, or exploring their potential, or building their portfolio, or some such nonsense. What about their kid?

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

Her Mother: self-centered selfish foreign chick who came to america about 5 years ago. She works for Intel, smokes cigarettes, cheats on her boyfriend (the little girl's father),goes clubbing about twice a week, gets drunk, and sleeps all day.

Her Father: Gamer. Like a big kid. A pretty nice guy. Seems to put up with more then he should from the mother. Works as a hairstylist and caters to the mother like a butler. Seems to care more about toys and video games then other things.

thats about it.

As you can see they aren't doing anything important. The mom works the graveyard shift (and has been known to go home with guys) so she sleeps all day. The father picks her up from work and the little girl has to come, so she doesn't go to sleep till about anywhere between 3 and 6. I constantly hear these two argueing and or yelling at the little girl. They have no right to be mad at her, she is just a product of her enviorment. hmm

I wish I could do more for her. She has so much fun when she comes over here. smile
