Bottom line: she expressed no concern about his health or mental status, just what was in it for her - best case scenario (i.e. Harry dying).
She did mention that he had been prescribed some anti-anxiety medication when she had left him for a time in December. I would bet my life that it was a benzodiazepene of some sort like Lorazapam or Diazapam...something like that... She didn't know for sure. Those can be fatal in overdose because they can cause respiratory and CNS depression. Harry is OK for now though. He's home. Brooke saw him the previous night take his trash cans out to the street.
Harry is not letting any information from the hospital or the psych ward get back to Shelly. She has no idea what is going on.
After he had OD'd, he went driving around, drunkenly looking for her.
Too bad for us, she went inside after this and there was incoherent yelling that, for the life of me, I could not distinguish. I'm sure more will surface. Time will tell what will happen to our ill-fated neighbors in domestic distress. Until next time...

Why would such a neat person as I ever classify myself as a nerd/geek/dork/dweeb? Is it because of my history of social awkwardness? My inability to get asked out on dates or flirt with the opposite sex? My lack of "street smarts." My penchant for looking words up in the dictionary and analyzing what I read and listen to? Is it because my hobbies fall out of the norm and don't contain widespread appeal? In all reality it is probably all of the above.
How does one tell which category you, yourself, falls into?
According to the diagram above, I have given myself scores with vague explanations and generalizations.
- My social ineptitude would probably be 4/10 because, though born with 'handicaps' in this area, I've been actively working on it and forcing myself to improve for the past few years.
- My intelligence is definitely excellent in some areas, competent in most, and severely lacking in others (what is the make and model of my own car let alone yours?) I'll give it a 6/10, because I consider the knowledge I do have more important than what celebrity is marketing Taco Bell and if the starlets are wearing panties or not, etc.
- My obsessions don't border on extreme at all, especially compared to others I know, but I have more than some. I also have obsessive behaviors in how I work day to day and the methodical way in which I do things, but I wouldn't call it OCD, so a 5/10 would be appropriate.
Darn. I'm a little bit of everything, which would classify me as nerd. I'm OK with that. At least I'm relatively balanced, in my own view. I'm not primarily super smart and obsessed about any one thing. I'm also not totally obsessed with something and completely socially backward with no intelligence. Because I do have some obsessions, that rules out primarily dweeb. Nerd it is.
What are you?

Boys shouldn't wear their board shorts to school. There's a time and place for that, like the lake for instance, not school. Put on a pair of pants and a nice cardigan. Dress for the occasion, damnit.
I really hate it when girls wear ugg boots in the summer. Get your seasons straight.
Actually, I hate when girls wear ugg boots period. The most terrible girls always wear their super flares over the boot. GAH! Terrible I tell you. The only person allowed to wear them is Lucas, because he just looks adorable and homeless when doing so.
I also hate lip liner. All lip liner sucks. Even on you, you mexican goddess.

It turns out that the eldest daughter is basically a fat spinster...who is getting on in years and has no prospects. Sad, but true.
The middle daughter is dating someone and is actually serious. They are engaged, in fact. Oh funny.
The youngest is a player, breaking hearts left and right. She kinda leads guys on and then laughs in their faces.
Note to Ali: I'm not calling you a lazy whore by making these comparisons. It's just too funny how oddly these things are matching up.
Oh and no one even tried to guess the movie I was referring to. It's Meg Ryan's quote from You've Got Mail. The exact quote is this:
"So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void."
...such a great movie. I should stop watching so many chick flicks. It's just gonna make me a bitter, sour old spinster. ;)

Pumps with ankle socks are my favorite trend. Granted, it's been around for at least the past year and longer, but I think Utah should finally catch up already and incorporate this great practice. Maybe you think I'm crazy, but don't do this, because I know what I'm talking about. Seriously. Here are some examples. Celebrities and not.

This is not exactly what we were looking for, but you are adorable and these are some great smiles.
From Maureen's own words:
I decided to see if I had mastered the bored smile. And instead I found that I have mastered the "Wow I'm SO excited to be here...Not" smile, and the "I'm only smiling because you don't know what I did" smile. :)
Baby Picture= Mischevious
Freshman Year Pic= Really didn't want to be out in the cold at the football game...but I might as well make the best of it smile:)
