With less than an hour to go... miscellaneous thoughts

I almost downloaded some sort of virus tonight, just trying to satisfy my stupid need to see photos of Britney Spears, pregnant. (Morbid curiosity, I guess, or I like to torture myself - maybe a little of both.) Before McAfee alerted me to my error in judgement upon clicking on the suspect site, I did manage to read that she is likely having a boy, possibly to be named "Preston" or "Charlie," depending which site I believe. Oh, and she "scored a ton of gender-neutral presents" at her recent baby shower. Can I be sick, now??
Earlier tonight I saw the Chase Visa commercial that features the Five for Fighting song "100 Years," which shows the various stages of a couple's lives along with their various accompanying credit cards. Commercialism aside, I always used to get teary eyed when I saw it while I was pregnant the second time, thinking of what was changing for me:

I'm 33 for a moment
Still the man but you see I'm a they
A kid on the way
A family on my mind

Tonight, I cried for other reasons.
Last but certainly not a candle seemed like a nice idea this evening, even though it's a day early. (Happy birthday, baby.)

The candle was beautiful. I am sorry for your loss today. I know this message is late, with the timezones and such(sick DD) I didn't get here until the afternoon:( I'm sorry:(

Your time will come Lisa, and I am wishing you the strength and peace you will need to get there.

Actually Jill, you're right on time; I posted this an hour before going to bed - today's the day. Thanks.
