My mom is pretty awesome, you guys. (Hi Mom, who reads my LJ.)

This is the first half of an email I got from her today. I feel it worthy of sharing with other denizens of the internet:


I just read your livejournal and saw that you made brownies yesterday. This is really, really freaky since for some reason last night I remember thinking about my scratch brownie recipe and how good they are and how I wondered if you ever made them. I never make them anymore because we shouldn't eat them. How really freaky that I should have had that thought possibly at the exact moment that you were making them! I will enjoy them vicariously over the internet.

It's really no mystery why I talk the way I do.

(lol, not only do I have a "mom" tag, I also have a "baked goods" tag! Now if only I used any of my tags consistently...)

sorry I'm being such a creeper it's just that LOL YOU UPDATED AND I AM PROCRASTINATING AND STUFF

BAKED GOODS AND MOMS FTW. Haha, all the emails my mother sends me are super businesslike in tone. Plus she has an automatic signature that is all, "Regards, [Her Name]." So cold and clinical ;_;

Since when is leaving two comments on someone's LJ a creeper thing?? I unfriended you cuz you were all "blah blah blah stuff I don't care about" and I realized that your posts were like 75% of my flist and I never read them. And now I'm glad because looking at your LJ you talk about the new Doctor Who series and aaaaack I can't even get over Donna so I don't want to be all spoiled an' stuff.

Anyway your mom owes you brownies I think maybe. The end.

Aww! Yay, awesome moms FTW!

I'm surrounded by so many people who don't get along with their parents, so I feel like if I talk about how awesome mine are, people would just think I'm gloating.

My parents are awesome, but they also kinda put a lot of expectations of myself in my head that I've had to systematically eradicate if I'm ever to manage surviving in reality. So, they are both really good role models and we all love each other a lot but sometimes I'm like "hey people with abusive parents, sometimes I wish I could whine about my parents paying my way through college!" Which would be HORRIBLE because I would get CREAMED. Okay anyway bye~

I think it's only one way though, so when I'm eating baked goods, my mom thinks about them. T_T

That is actually totally amazing.

I would never let my mom read my LJ, I'm too secretive hehe.

I'm really fairly non-communicative with my parents. When I was in college, I went through a phase where my cellphone was NEVER on, and I never called anybody, and only responded to email and IMs, and LJ comments. So I guess, to keep discrete tabs on me, my mom started regularly reading my LJ. I'm pretty sure she did before I moved out and just never told me, too. Anyway, I used to have a policy of absolutely NO friends-locked entries, EVER, because I didn't treat my LJ like a "journal" at all.

But then some stuff happened and I decided to retroactively flock everything. And that's when I made my mom her own LJ account, specifically to read my flocked entries. I stopped making everything flocked a while ago, of course, but now my mom doesn't have to sign her anonymous LJ comments with "- Your Mother".

Anyway it's funny. I'm not secretive with my mother, but I certainly don't tell her everything! It's more like, if there's anything I want to keep private to the point where I'm not gonna tell my mom, I'm sure as HELL not going to post about it on my LJ! I keep personal stuff off of the internet a fair amount these days. It's easy, cuz I have the most incredibly boring life ever, but even if I didn't, I wouldn't want it splashed all over my journal. I kind of learned the hard way a while back that even the most meaningless shit can come back to bite you in the ass.

Then there was the time my mother read my slash fanfic. @_@

Oh OK.

And OMG. I would die if my mom ever read my fanfic hahaha.
