What's Your Marital Status?

I joined a thingy online today ( and I had to laugh when I got to the question in the Profile about marital status. There was a drop-down list with these choices:
  • (blank)
  • Single
  • De Facto
  • Partnered
  • Engaged
  • Married
  • Divorced
  • Desperate
I thought it was pretty funny, but on the other hand, it does say something about life these days.

Speaking of getting married, we are looking forward to a wedding this weekend. I wanted to give the bride a piece of my mother-in-law's lovely pottery, but I didn't know which piece, so I sent this photo to the bride and asked her which one she liked.
Ain't technology great??

Mimi--I like that name! My screen name is a word from the language we learned in the Solomon Islands, and it means "your mother" or "your maternal aunt." It that culture, they use the same word for both people.

And no, I probably won't post much on that site, but I had to log in because I know the mom and dad of the brothers who run the site. The boys were little kids we knew when we lived in the Solomons.
