Like LeVar Burton! I think he was born on an American military installation in West Germany, but correct me if I'm wrong.

I still need to get mine done; the deadline is fast approaching! However, I'm having some trouble with my compositions, one in particular.

I'm told I was conceived at a New Year's Eve party, LOL.

Re: 2nd Annual Valentine's Day Extravaganza!

The story of my conception goes like this: "Your father didn't want any children, he was very selfish. But I knew when the right time was to get pregnant and there was nothing he could do about it." For years I pictured my mother having some supernatural power that created life despite the dark repelling forces of my dad.

Re: 2nd Annual Valentine's Day Extravaganza!

I was conceived in mid-January and born in early November after my parents' first pregnancy attempt was a miscarriage. My mom smiled and told me I was conceived during a romantic night in a local hotel and she once pointed the hotel out to me.

My conception was about a month before their first wedding anniversary and the hotel stay was apparently part of the celebration.

Re: 2nd Annual Valentine's Day Extravaganza!

I'm just reacting to random elements in life glomming onto my brain.

It goes like this..

People are often with struggles, you can't always see them--->that's why it's nice to show appreciation---->but there can only be FIVE only five.. someone or someones must be left behind----->and what if the one or the ones left behind are the most secretly needy? what if they read all this OH THANK YOU MY DAY HAS BEEN MADE BY THIS WONDERFUL BIT OF BBS LOVIN' and inside they die a little, or more than a little, because no one sent them a flower..

So I've been thinking if I send NO flowers my neglect of any one individual is not personal.

I neglected them.. I neglected them ALL. And not just the popular ones, but the dull ones and the flaptains too!!

Like, totally equal neglect. Which I feel bad about.

There is no way to win at this holiday.

I know the feeling! If it helps, you can send as many as you'd like. I can deal with it.

Edit: I also think its a good idea to just let the people in your life know that you care about them in general. It doesn't have to be on Valentine's Day or with flowers. If you're thinking of someone next week, or two months from now, shoot them a PM and let them know. It will mean just as much.

Well this is a downer but there were several times in my life when someone was on my mind and I didn't contact them and then they actually died. This has meant I operate pretty much on guilt and if someone comes to mind I'm very careful about not shoving it aside and I do make contact. As soon as I read Candlelight's post about his dad dying I called my dad.

Re: 2nd Annual Valentine's Day Extravaganza!

It's okay. That happened to me when I was fifteen and I think it's one of the reasons it's important for me to let people know that I care about them. I understand where you are coming from.
