REV. SHIELDS, WE HARDLY KNEW YE

He slept two hours at a time and wrote down his dreams. He saved nose-hair clippings and detailed his bodily fluid eliminations. He could not say why he did those things.

(Thanks to DavCat)

but could he build a coral castle?!!?

Gee, I outgrew my diary when I was 10.

I think you can get a prescription to fix this now-adays.

Who's his publisher?

Come and listen to a story 'bout a Reverend named Bob
Poor old teacher everyone said was odd
Then one day he was writin' about his food,
And up through the ground come a dark, cloaked dude
(Death that is, big scythe, bad tan)

Well the first thing you know old Bob's a lying there
Kin folk said they didn't even care
Said an asylum was the place he should'a been
So they loaded up the truck and they moved his fluids there and then
(outside that is, away from the house, down the hill)

Well now it's time to say goodbye to Rev. Bob and all his kin
They would like to thank you folks for kindly dropping in
You're all invited back again to this locality
To have a heaping helping o' clippings or a page of diary!
Nice folks Y'all come back now, ya hear?)

Dad?

Gee, if you are chronicaling every five minutes of your life, don't you get to a point where you're chronicalling about chronicalling?

Ummm... He was a pastor? What denomination?

OCD, much?


*be right back, I have to go check the locks and the stove and wash my hands....again*

Spelling of the nebulous word "chronicalling" optional by the way. When it's not an actual word, you can spell it however you wanna.

What a crazy guy to be writing things down about his day, many times a day, for strangers to read.....um...ahh....nevermind.

Hey, Punkin Boo! Um...yeah. *looks guiltily from side to side*

Hammie, that was BRILLIANT! Major snorkage alert! (Oh, and wet cleanup, aisle five.)

*snork* @ crossgirl!!

Heh! I'd like to see him keep his diary NOW!

Punkin, think of the crazy people that read that crap...

Total nutsoids


and a chronicallin SNORK @ Hammie's Monster!

(... and a 'nym cleanum, aisle two. Dangit.)

Hey, Punkin, any Sadie updates?

(Dagnabbit! I'm just going to go back and hide under my desk some more.)

"dear diary: wrote in my diary today, dreamed i was writing in my diary last night, and when i woke up, i was writing in my diary! what's up wit' dat? "

seems like the rev. believed firmly in this song

ewwww. uck. apparently first church of the really nuts.

nice song hammie.

He really needed a woman.

Snork@poo song, 2 funny

insom, I love that scene/song/show!

Edgar, not any more.

Nope, you're right about that, Siouxie.

Although, he most likely was single. And lived with his dead mother. In a hotel.

Punkin - did you write that song?!

Actually, he apparently had one once.

"The cause of his death was a heart attack, said his daughter, Klara Hicks."

DD - No, I didn't write the Poo song - I was just the inspiration!

sthnbelle - I get to FINALLY hold baby Sadie on Friday at 10am!!!!! I also get to meet BioMom - my nerves are a mess! The social worker said she (rightfully) wants to meet the person who will raise her daughter. NO PRESSURE!

What do you say to someone who just gave you the most precious gift, by having to lose it herself??????

YAY Punkin!! you'll do great!

Tell her(the mom) that you have plenty of aunties and uncles that'll care for and love little Sexy Sadie!

uh..then again..maybe don't.

OCD, much?

Punkin, I suffer from CDO. It's like OCD only THE INITIALS ARE IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER LIKE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE.

Irony alert: In getting ready for the kids tonight, I had to get rid of the real cobwebs on my front porch so I could hang the fake ones...

*snork* @ fivver.

Punkin, that is SOOOOOO awesome!!! You know - the tears that I know you'll both be crying will be the ice breaker. She will know. And if she doesn't, send her here to see how much love there is for Miss Sadie-Poo already. :)

Punkin --
3 of my neices and nephews are adopted. Only one of the birth parents has gotten in touch.

"Thank you for Lindsay" was a huge understatement on a bride's wedding day. It was the first chance we had to say it, but I'm glad we did. I think saying it earlier is fine. Fine if the child's name is going to be Lindsay, that is. Sadie might make more sense in this context. Otherwise, the comment might confuse the birth mom.

The birth mother had several family stories that she viewed as being key to the identity of Lindsay. Lindsay listens each time the stories are repeated, understanding now that the repeating of the stories is key to understanding who her birth mother wants Lindsay to be and to pass along to the grandchildren.

Depending on how much contact you all are going to have with each other, ask if there are any family stories that she wants the child to know.

Matzel tov.

fivver, I'm having the same problem with skeletons in the yard.

Hammie, we have get rid of the real ones? I just make sure I dig real deep the first time around.

Frankenhammie - I just keep mine in the closet. It's much easier.

Totally OT alert, but good new anyway:

The judge who sued the cleaners for losing his pants just lost his job! He was given a memo telling him to be out of his office by 5:00 p.m.

Dimwitte --
Don't forget the eternal dry cleaner motto:

"In by 10, out by 5"

Karma's a byotch, ain't it???

Thanks Dim!

YAY with tears of joy for you and Sadie, Punkin. What Diva said a bit up there - I bet you'll both be crying a bit (or maybe more) and that will help her see how SUPERHUGELY you want this little girl and how EVENMOREHUGELY you're gonna love her.

Ms Pumpkin- Know that the prayers of myself and other blurkers who talk to the Supreme Entity continue to go upstairs for you and Mister Poo. My cousins and ex-wife are adopted, and the good people on all ends of the process are heroes in my eyes.

As always, thank you all, my friends, for your support and words of wisdom!

I'll give you all the report (and, hopefully, pics of the Sadie-meister), on Friday!

it's spelled "cronckling"

Major ROFL at fivver and his OCD - oops, CDO!
Good luck, Punkin. You'll be fine. :)

Best wishes and positive thoughts to the Poo family.
I think the mother will see that you are a blessing to her.

Hello my name is Edith Dull my mom is Heidi Shields... she was Rev. Robert Shields' daughter. So obviously I'm his granddaughter. Please stop making fun of him... he died in 2007 and I was in the house when he died it's heart-wrenching and difficult to deal with for some people. Yes he was eccentric but that's no reason to make fun of the dead.
