Meme time

stolen from ncp

You know how sometimes people on your friendslist post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when?" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-word answers seldom help anyone out.

NAME: Jackie

AGE: 27

LOCATION: Berkeley, CA, temporarily. My husband and I are originally from the east coast (New England) and plan on moving back there after I'm done with grad school. Assuming that ever happens.

OCCUPATION: Planaria wrangler and part-time manuscript editor

PARTNER: CJ, who is an amazing physics teacher and even better husband.

KIDS: One on the way! At the moment we're calling it Bob.

BROTHERS/SISTERS: One awesome younger sister. The six year age gap was annoying growing up but now that we're both adult-ish it's kinda cool. :)

PARENTS: Oh man, I don't know if I want to get into that in a meme. Let's just say that I love my family but they can drive me nuts sometimes.

PETS: Two cats. We have the stupid-but-adorable Sophie, who we adopted, and our cranky old lap cat Luna/Tuna, who adopted us.


1) Um, have I mentioned that I'm pregnant? :P That's kind of the biggie at the moment.

2) Have been 'finishing up experiments' for a manuscript for about six months now. Hopefully that will get finished before the arrival of Thing #1.

3) Are starting to look for 2 bedroom apartments so that when awesome sister (maybe, hopefully) comes to live with us and take care of Bob she will not have to sleep on an air mattress in the living room for a year.

Did you find out what flavor of baby you're having??

Well, presumably Bob will be baby (chicken?) flavored, but there is a slight possibility that s/he will come out ginger-scented. Or with a hint of chocolate and caramel from all the Twix.

OMG! I didn't know you were pregnant. Congratulations!

:pointy dance of impending Bob joy:

Haha, maybe I subconsciously picked up that wording from you? I am not all that good at wrangling the planaria, actually; they sort of just swim wherever they want.
