BYOC - Bring your own crazy!!!

Anyone know what day it is? I don’t have to tell you – do I? Fine. Fine. It’s FRIDAY!!! That means it’s time for Drazil's BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer five little questions to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog and enjoy!!

1. What religion were you raised as a child, if any, and are you still a member of that faith today? Why or why not?

Mostly I was raised Episcopal.  I do still consider myself Episcopalian, but I don’t so much go to church.  I’m pretty religious – but it’s very personal to me.  I’ve taught my kids the big things that I think are important about God, but I’ve absolutely done them a disservice because they don’t know a fair amount of the basic bible knowledge that is just about common knowledge in the world… like who Adam and Eve, and Cain and Able are… that kind of thing… I’m trying to change that basic knowledge stuff now.
I’ve said before that I really think all the organized religions are all just different flavors of the same thing.  There are good and bad in all of them.  For me the important stuff is your own relationship with God and faith.  The rest is just window dressing.

2. Do you have an all time favorite candy or do you change favorites often?

AT the moment I’m kind of unhealthily addicted to Nestles crunch crisp bars.  OMG.  That’s is really all I can say…. Just OMG.

3. Are you a green thumb? Do you landscape your yard or plant any flowers or a garden? Do you pay someone to do it for you? Do you not plant a single thing?

Well…  we paid someone to put in the gardens I envisioned.  I love beautiful gardens but really – I need to be independently wealthy so I can have the cabana boy double as the gardener – oh um. Wait – that’s stupid right?  I want a cabana boy and a gardener and a pool boy… aah, yes.. ok.. I digress.
I HATE to garden.  I desperately wish I was someone for whom gardening was a soothing and relaxing thing but… it’s just a sweaty pain in the ass.  And the look of my once pretty garden is proof of that.

4. Let’s just say you were a tattoo junkie and you were planning your next tat and it had to be words only. What words would you choose? A quote? Phrase? One word? Would you do it in English or a different language?

Well… I don’t know exactly – but it would have to be something very personal and very meaningful just to me.  And then… it would depend on what it was as to whether or not I wanted to keep it personal – and put it in a different language – or yell it boldly to the world.  I guess that doesn’t really help, now does it, Draz?

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week.

This week has not been my favorite.  I had a PITA mother’s day and continue to wrestle with big emotional things in my life.   I’m worried about Jason and his future transitions.  I’m worried about Tom and his transition into highfuckingschool.
I did have a much needed bright spot this week on Wednesday when I was reminded of happier things.  I have the day off today and I’m heading to the Science Center with Jason and another mother and son I really like, so that will be fun.  My birthday is on Sunday and I’m not at all looking forward to it, though I am looking forward to going out with my friend Jamie – I know that will be fun!!

I never look forward to my b-day, but this last one was great. I hope the same happens for you. Miss you!
