Well the story goes like this, without revealing my true name (which really I would if someone were to ask)but my name is quite original compared to the rest of my sister's names. And when I asked my mother and father why that was, my mother said somewhat harshly, "Because you were supposed to be David Jr. that's why!" My dad used to always say to me though that I "came out as good a man as any human with a penis." I love my dad. So yes I was raised as a boy, learned how to hit a ball, play basketball, take a punch, lift weights etc. etc. I was athlete of the year, a tomboy for quite sometime, brought the boys over to my house to eat my mom's food and play some vids and didn't date until I was seventeen so my dad was pretty relieved.

I don't think that's his reason why, but are you against single males adopting?

So was your mom upset, then, that you didn't end up a boy? Are you from a culture where females are considered inferior?

Well, it was a joke. I'm a bit upset about my younger brother getting married. I'm not entirely sure why but part of it is that I can't really take it very seriously. It seems too flaky and like "playing house". I don't honestly think marriage is "wrong" but I don't really believe in it much. I guess I don't see the point when they can live together for five or six years first. Then marriage is a good excuse for a party when you *know* you are a couple. If a marriage isn't anticlimatic (and a fun excuse to get dressed up, eat cake, and get kitchen stuff) it seems ... wierd.

You mean any culture on planet earth? *sigh*

It didn't sound like her parents were upset; just that they were really trying for a boy and realized they'd never have one. The exasperation sounds like they new they knew they'd have to explain the ... odd ... name eventially and weren't looking forward to it.

My mother wasn't extremely upset it was more in good humor when she said it. But really the disappointment was in the fact that I came out to be yet another girl... the fourth one to be exact.

In previous postings, woozy's complaint involves siring his own children, not about adopting them. Well, even in Berkeley, I'm sure that lots of women prefer to be married first. *insert emoticon with one raised eyebrow here*

Is it possible to sire children that are not one's own? I haven't heard about any recent advances in testicle transplantation, but I guess anything is possible. Go get'em woozy! Once you've successfully fathered the children, I guess you can have the donor testicles removed, if you don't want to keep taking the anti-rejection drugs.

Did I specify?

Are you sure? Actually, among the parents I know I think only half of them were married at the time of the children. Most *did* get married shortly after the kids came probably because marriage makes shared property and parental definitions nice and legal.

I guess my feeling is marriage doesn't make a relationship serious nor is marriage a proof that a relationship is serious. Children, I must admit, are a pretty good catalyst to get folks to assessing whether their relationship is serious.

Actually, I don't think marriage is silly. I just think my *brothers* imminant marriage is silly! (And that's just me being mean...)

And I would very much like to marry the mother of my children. She doesn't seem to want to though (what with not existing and all that. ... *sigh* ....)

Hmmm... Dr. pooja has concluded that there's not much hope for you if can't even get a woman to do what you want in your fantasies, let alone your reality! You should work on that first, maybe...

What? BUt raising the kids is the best part of having kids!

You can teach them to hate the people you hate and what with the internet they practically raise themselves.

Thanks IronS!! :-D

And yeah, what Cinenaut said.

Having a New Year's b-day is topped in suck-itude only by Christmas bdays, I think. But I just stretch mine out a week and celebrate it various ways. Works out okay. As a kid, it sucked, though, because no one was around at all.

Now a few more people are around, they're just hungover or sick. [g]

Thanks again!

Mao-chan's birthday is Dec. 26, and Mao-mama's birthday is Dec. 31... They always seem pretty happy with it. Mao-mama says it's like the whole world is celebrating her birthday. Probably a birthday that falls in the middle of the long summer vacation was worse in terms of friends, as a kid. Mine is in July.

Kboy is the only one in our family whose birthday can fall on a school day.

Mao-chan thought her birthday sucked a bit in that year before last it was the big Tsunami, then this past Dec. 26 a fire burnt down a retirement home in our local community. It's Boxing Day in Canada and the UK, though!

Hmmm, does anyone have (or know of someone who has) a birthday on October 13th? It's a special day this year.
