Borrower? Of books? How does that work out? :?


Well, they're books about these six inch people who live in the floors and borrow things from us (like food, and safety pins). Delightful books.


Aww.... That sounds like a really cute story. Reminds me of "Honey, I shrunk the kids" movie. lol

Phylis, I have seen some of the movies, and read the books, and really, the movies don't come close to comparing with the books... :roll:

Yeah, I bet they're not. The illustrations are enough for me. And really, after all, what movie compares to the book?

Haha. I'll admit it. It's me. My middle name on Facebook is 'Spellchecker' so when you asked where the spellcheck was, I just couldn't resist. ^_^

@Luke
:shock:
You're evil *glowers*

I will send YOU vampire kitties to steal all your cupcakes and smoothies. And your PSP while I'm at it. I couldn't resist. ;)

:D Yes, unfortunately, the evil half of my split-personality mind is currently in charge.

And sadly for you, I don't have a PSP. Or any gaming device, for that matter. Nor do I have cupcakes or smoothies, though if anyone wanted to give me some, I would be happy to share with your adorable vampire kitties. ;)

Tip: Do not ever, ever skip the first page of a thread and go right to the fourth page. . . :shock:

I want to be an author. Of course. :P And in the future, a wife and mother. :D

Nice goals! :D

I almost came on and nudged the thread back on track... but I wasn't sure how that would be taken from a not-too-active non-editor. :)

Not really. I tend to lean more towards the world traveling bachelor type.

in case I haven't mentioned it, I want to be an underwater archaeologist.

@Luke

Oh fine then. Its all in good humor. :)


Back to topic- I don't know how may kids I'll have. My sister is a handful enough, being young and all so I don't envision having too many. Probably two.
:evil: :twisted:

Something tells me I'm going to have my hands full.

*chuckles * After reading this thread, I have decided my version of big, and other people's version of big, are two totally different things.

Be careful of your thoughts; guard your mind, for your thoughts become words. Be guarded when you speak, for your words turn into action. Watch what you do, for your actions will become habits. Be wary of your habits, for they become your character. Pray over your character; strive to mold it to the image of Christ, because your character will shape your destiny.

Ideas can germinate from the smallest seeds. Collect those seeds, and let them grow in the back of your mind. You may be surprised by what finally blooms.

When God takes something from your grasp, he's not punishing you. Instead, He’s opening your hands to receive something better. The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

That's how many I want!

As to what I want to be when I grow up, I've just decided I want to be a unicorn in human form.

See!!! Those numbers are more what I’m talking about. :D

For sake of ease, I tell people I want 16 children. In essence, I’m saying “I want as many as God will give me (because let’s face it, how many of us get that lucky?), but I would prefer the number to be high”. :D

You should see the looks I get. :D The looks I'm okay with, I actually get a kick out of them. It is the comments that follow that I'm not always thrilled with. :roll: (and no, I did not roll my eyes fondly that time ;))

*Chuckles at Airi* Oh dear, I would be one of those people who would stare at you in shock I think. But you wouldn't receive any horrid comments though. :D

Some people like a lot of children, for me I like to have a many as me and my husband want and God will add the blessing. (Who knows I may never marry!!) I would love to be a Mother though.
