do we like the new header thing? I plan to change the background picture every once in a while. If anyone has an awesome background to suggest, you have 3 options: 1. suggest it on the bloggie and I will do it later, 2. design your own bloggie background, 3. keep it as a deep dark secret.
Fermi, I read the article. It accurately describes (pretty much) the relationship/hierarchy that was/is my parents. The only difference is that my mom seems to be completely supportive of the idea that anything she has provided (raising 3 kids, cooking, cleaning up after a pack-rat, taking care of my dad's parents through years of terminal illness, etc) is less important and valid than the financial support my dad has begrudgingly provided. He even has a way of making me feel guilty for spending money that I earned at my own job. (Yes, I'm aware that no one can make you feel any way, but I still think they can a little bit, especially your family) That's not to say my mom is some kind of saint. She's controlling and manipulative in a highly disarming way. At least for me it's disarming, but that may have more to do with the fact that I was reared in the environment. Something tells me this is more of a topic for a personal blog.
I think Skuh would have a nice contribution to that article as well.
I'm beginning the month-long move in 2.5 weeks. Eek.
