I asked Gavin if he wanted to send her a message and he just said "SUCK IT!" Damn kid. Hope you guys have a wonderful time at her party! Don't get her too drunk. If you do, make sure to take pictures and video. Nothing says "I love my best friend" like a video of her acting like an asshole.

Tara Sivec I'm actually thinking of turning this crazy family into a holiday series. You might see something coming from them for Valentine's Day next :)

“And let’s face it people, no one is ever honest with you about child birth. Not even your mother.       “It’s a pain you forget all about once you have that sweet little baby in your arms.”     Bullshit.   I CALL BULLSHIT.   Any friend, cousin, or nosey-ass stranger in the grocery store that tells you it’s not that bad is a lying sack of shit.   Your vagina is roughly the size of the girth of a penis.   It has to stretch and open andturn into a giant bat cave so the life-sucking human you’ve been growing for nine months can angrily claw its way out.   Who in their right mind would do that willingly?   You’re just walking along one day and think to yourself, “You know, I think it’s time I turn my vagina into an Arby’s Beef and Cheddar (minus the cheddar) and saddle myself down for a minimum of eighteen years to someone who will suck the soul and the will to live right out of my body so I’m a shell of the person I used to be and can’t get laid even if I pay for it.”
Tara Sivec, Seduction and Snacks

“Well fuck me gently with a chainsaw,”
Tara Sivec, Seduction and Snacks

“I'm a quirky, intelligent, dark haired chick!   Me, me, me, pick me!   And who the hell keeps whining and ruining my perfect moment?   I will cut a bitch.”

“Carbohydrates from the Latin, carbo which means "yummy" and hydrates which means "cinnamon bun," are not something I can eliminate or even drastically cut back on.”

“Right when my fingers started to slip inside my underwear, I opened my eyes and screamed.     "HOLY SHIT!"     My son stood there next to the bed just staring at me. Seriously, two inches from my face just staring at me like those creepy twins in "The Shining." I waited for him to start saying, "Come play with us" in their freaky twin voices while I tried not to have a heart attack.     "Gavin, seriously. You can't just stand here and stare at mommy. It's weird," I grumbled as I put my hand to my aching head and tried to calm my pounding heart.       Sweet Jesus, who kicked me in the head and shit in my mouth last night?     "You said a bad word, Mommy,”

Lesley Madden Tara, You have to be the funniest person ever.... I don't know how you get through writting these books with out dying of laughter.... I can't stop laughing... that Drew and Jenny crack me up and then you have Liz and Claire that go at each other and it almost makes me pee in my pants... I'm on chapter 18 of Troubles and Treats and I can't stop laughing... I love when Jenny is drunk at that concert and she is yelling Vagina.... or when she is begging Liz to look at her Vagina and Liz tells her she is going to punch her in the neck (or somewhere)... Love it.... Keep up the wonderful writting.
