-Cousin Update

Last week I mentioned that I reconnected with a cousin that I haven't seen in 10 years.  Last night (okay, early this morning) I was emailing my friend Jenny a ridiculously long email with numbered points (I'm not sure why exactly, but who knows why we do the things that we do at 3am) and then ......well instead of explaining it, here is an excerpt from the email:

"11. I love Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie.  Thank you for sharing my British obsession.  It is good to know that I am not the only one! (at this point all is normal)
12. side note that doesn't belong to a number, but will have to be there because it just happened.  My cousin that I blogged about just logged onto fb and now I am having a small anxiety attack wondering if he is going to respond to my note......heart racing, breath uneven and shallow.  Thanks for letting me rant. (I try to go back to email writing)
13. I fully intend to check out the blogs that you listed on yours, but I have been playing reading blogs catch up all week long it seems.
14. You asked about us.....       (The whole thinking thing isn't working so well)
15. I am trying to come up with answers......
16. I am liking this thing where I write numbered half sentences and a bunch of dots.........
17. My heart rate seems to be nearing normal now.......
18. My cousin has is no longer on letter response.  How much do I want to read into that?.......
Okay, I am getting a hold of myself now and will stop this and be a normal email writer again!!"

Still waiting to hear back from him.  Obsession continues.


  1. please make your font bigger or i'm going to go blind reading this blog! i'm an old lady! and if you would be so kind as to remove the WV - look on my side bar for directions - not to be bossy, just sayin :)

  2. I finally got to read that previous post all the way through...and I completely understand about the continual question of "Why doesn't he love me?" popping up...

    BTW, My Antonia is FAB.U.LOUS.

  3. I find that I can do some of my best writing at 3:00am Your tired but it seems as though your brain is in full gear. However, I now find that the only thing I get done at 3:00 am is let my kitties out onto the screened porch so they will stop walking all over me.
    Usually, my husband lets them out but he went on a golf trip and left me to tend to the little furry troublemakers. I love your writing though, you are very talented and leave food for thought.
