Because of my health, I have decided to avoid all meats, eggs, and dairy for a year. I notified my fellow Texan JimVH before going public with this.

Went to cousin's funeral this afternoon. He was my 3rd cousin, I suppose, if he was my dad's 2nd cousin. Saw some relatives that I haven't seen in a long while, and some others that I've never met. He was 93 years old, but still, it was a hard afternoon for me, and a depressing evening now.
That would make him your second cousin once removed.

Same as kissing cousin, maybe? Not to be weird or anything, but I can immediately think of two or three ... well, never mind, and hush my mouth.

But Sir Moose is right, the relative in question was my second cousin once removed. Not that you guys care, really.

I've been off work since December of 2012. I'm not depressed unless I have to do something at all.

Very true. We actually had another friend with us to help show us the ropes. Everything went quite well.

There's a guy named James McMurtry who wrote a song called Choctaw Bingo about a family reunion and his cousins Ruth Ann and Linda. It's a cool song (though perhaps not CPS appropriate) about those relatives we all have. If you're from KS or OK, you'll know some of the towns and landmarks he sings about.

I found out today that I'm getting some sort of award at work. I don't actually know why yet. I'm hoping it comes with cash and/or paid days off, but I suspect it won't. I'll be away when they are actually making presentations.

My 2 yo daughter has a great term for this: beep.

(2 yo farts and proudly states) Me beep!

(Someone else farts. 2 yo accusingly says) Du beep!

(Blow raspberry on 2 yo. She says) Du beep me!

Next you know we've got a Rammstein tune.
