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...)

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. @_@
