    Default it's just li'l ol' me

    I know everybody pretty much knows me already but I just couldn't let the opportunity to annoy SolitaryWalker with another introduction thread go by.

    I'm Ivy, a person of the feminine persuasion and of undetermined MBTI type, married to a very obvious INTP. We have two children, an elementary-aged girl and a toddler boy. (We refer to them as Thing 1 and Thing 2, or Geener & Deener if I'm feeling silly.) I think my daughter's an NF but I can't tell yet about my son. I think probably most toddlers, with exceptions such as the unusually cerebral Thing 1, resemble SPs. He has mellowed considerably lately, though.

    I was a childcare provider until last year when I started doing freelance editing. I grandfathered out all my remaining childcare charges, and the last ones left in December. I do still watch the wee bairns occasionally, but it is much more tolerable to be with OPKs (other people's kids) occasionally rather than daily.

    I also like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. See you all on the forum!

    Congrats on the mellowing toddler and much agreement on OPKs.

    Welcome.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Welcome.
    It is an entirely different experience altogether to trade childcare with friends. So casual. I no longer feel like I'm someone's minion!

    In fact, now I have a minion! She rules. But it's weird for me. I am trying not to be a dick to her. I worked mostly with great people but there were a couple of parents I just gritted my teeth to interact with and I don't want to be that one. The way I'm looking at it, I investigated her trustworthiness and found it acceptable, so now my job is to keep her happy so she will continue to be willing to watch my kids.

    She just started watching OPKs a few weeks ago so she's very fresh and enthusiastic. I give her a year.

    Hah! Ain't that the truth!

    You seem like the kind of rational girl who doesn't like cilantro.

    (And hi!)

    Clearly, only an irrational person (probably an F *snort*) would eat something that tastes like sweatsocks.

    Hi! You probably have minions, too. Do you like him/her/them?

    No minions. I'd love to have a good minion, though.

    No, I wouldn't eat minions either. (They also taste like sweatsocks, especially if they have been working out.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Ah, that explains your uncanny aptitude for handling squabbles on INTPC.

    I also like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.
    I was just about to ask.

    Anyway, good to see you in control on this side of the looking glass.
    I'm not a procrastinator. I'm a long-term planner.
