pâte chinnoise

Take random things. Mix them together. Call it a meal.
That, says my husband, is pâte chinnoise.

Where is it?
My period has not arrived. Where the hell is it? I have done everything I can think of to bring it on: sex, pregnancy test, wearing best white panties. Nothing has worked.
What to try next? White linen pants?

Bad Santas
If this keeps up I will most definitely not be getting a reply to my Dear Santa letter.

I have just discovered that there is another blogging
Nina. Like me she has had 4 failed and 2 cancelled IVFs and more than her fair share of heartache and disappointment. In deference to the fact that she arrived first in the blogosphere, and to avoid any confusion, I will now refer to myself as nina2 when I leave comments. Or should it be ninatoo?

My sister has a new boyfriend
He is lovely. Will this complicate the situation if we decide to proceed with a DE cycle with her? I'm guessing yes, but only because everything so far has been complicated, so why shouldn't it get more complicated?

Where is she?
My mother left for India 3 weeks ago. It her first trip back since her father died, and since her recovery from chemo & radiation. I know the trip to her parent's empty house will be difficult for her, but I hope the visits with friends and family will make up for it. I wish she would call to let me know she's okay, but the fact that she hasn't probably means she's too busy visiting, eating and shopping and that's good.

The Island
We watched this movie last night about a futuristic world where people can create clones of themselves as a 'insurance policy'. When you get ill you use the clone for spare body parts. I think the viewer is supposed to be appalled and outraged by this scenario, but I kept thinking how nice it would be if I had a clone to provide me with 2 fresh, healthy, replacement ovaries.

My nephew
My brother has just returned from 1 month in Bordeaux with his wife, 3 yr old and newborn. I am insanely jealous of his good fortune. The 3 yr old is unbelievably cute, as only one's first nephew can be. I ask him if he's learned any french words.
He can say bonjour, ca va, and merci.
'What else?' I ask.
'Candy', he replies.
'How do you say candy?'

Close. Very close.

Regarding the doppelganger, its a good idea to modify your screen name in order to limit confusion.
May I suggest an alternative to Nina2?
Maybe jou could add an initial in stead, e.g. of your middle or last name. You could also just choose a random initial.

You've done all my tricks to bring on a period. I think new expensive white pants is all that's left.

As for Nina, I'm glad you found her blog. I guess I thought you already knew about it. I think adding an initial or something else might be better than a number.

Hope you hear from your mom soon.

No confusion with the other Nina for me as she does not comment and you do!!

I have no assvice for bringing a wayward period to heel as mine is usually awol for a lot longer than 28 days. Are you usually regular? Hope she turns up (or not???)

I'd never met the other nina, so no confusion here. The pee on a stick thing usually brings my period right along. Worth another try?

Re The Island: haven't seen it yet but it's on my queue. Yes, wouldn't it be nice to have a clone for fresh parts. Even nicer would be to have a clone that has parts that are, say, 10 years younger than mine.:)

You OK, sweetie. It has been a while.
