Can today be over yet?    2003-12-16 19:47:35 ET
Work gave me the ok to dye my hair purple again. So I bleached out the black and dyed it purple. My hair is green. Not just one shade of green. It is teal, blue-green, seaweed green, and yellow green.

I was on the phone for an hour with this one I care about more than I expected to. All weekend we pondered the direction of our future in regards to each other. We decided to end things.

My only friend at school has informed me that he doesn't want to be just friends. I, however, don't want anything beyond friendship. I tried to tell him this as nicely as I could. I think I have lost my only friend.

On days like this I realize I say the word "Dang" alot.

This morning, Coffee in one hand and teetering five year old on roller blades for the first time in the other, I took a stroll around the block. We then watched about four hours of catoons. I made lunch. We played in the park for two hours. Dinner came shortly after that, chicken nuggets and green beans. We had a contest who could eat the beans the fastest. I chased her around the house and then we picked out the veggie tales christmas Cd and climbed into my car. For an hour we drove around and looked at all the lights on the houses. We came home and danced in my living room to aboved mentioned christmas music. then, Hot chocolate in hand, we watched "Labrynth" ("It's my favorite, and it was your favorie when you were little too huh?") She fell asleep on me snoring quiet happily before the final battle and I carried her to bed. I love being Aunt Kiki.

So something kinda interesting played itself out at work.
Because I go to school, college funding comes up a lot with the people I work with. One of my co-workers, Doug, announced that he was saving all he could for his children (of 9 and 11). Brooke (another co-worker) told us about how her parents refused to help her pay for school.

She was too young to be separate from her parent’s earnings, so she stuck without any financial aid. Her only chance to get out of this was to show proof of abuse or get married. So she got married. She and one of her best friends, who happened to be gay, married for convenience. They stayed married until they were out of school. Her divorce was finalized about three months ago.

While I found this to be amusing, Doug got angry at Brooke. Making off the wall accusations like “If I were gay would you marry me too?” He felt that what Brooke did was wrong and actually refused to talk to her the rest of the day.

Just for the sake of conversation.. what do you think about marriages of convenience?
