I actually like mothering people as long as I feel like I'm an active participant, not an answering machine!

I guess mothers don't get to dictate how they care, though...or, they do.... :D
Maybe she's not used to having a nurturing mother-figure. Hopefully she'll be more receptive once she gets used to confiding in you?
Which is why I am trying to listen to her for the time being. I know that she is the way she is because of my parents, and while that makes me really sad, it gets frustrating to talk to someone who can't even admit that she likes you and lashes out at you the minute you disagree with something she said.

Ah, siblings.

EDIT: P.S. My post sounds cruel in the wrong context. (It probably still sounds cruel in the right context, but anyway.) My sister is over 21. Over 21. Not 13 with NSYNC posters hanging on the wall. You think that you'd mature as you got older. She's a very capable woman...but the emotional/love stuff is another story...

What's wrong with having NSYNC posters on your wall?

The convert names thread reminded me of something. When I was a kid I wanted to change my name to Crystal (I thought it was a boy's name for some reason).

*wiping effluvia from computer screen*

This is the sorta thing you wait a year or two to tell your shrink.

EDIT: Remember how I said I never call people by whatever LARPing names they use in RL? Well, Crystal baby, since this was this wish of young and sincere child:

Done.
It's not that bad. I mean, if I was a kid and I didn't know Crystal was a girl's name associated with a particular undignifistaed occupation, I'd have the following associations:
Crystals give you power in video games.
Crystals probably give you power in real life. It's not like the good folks at Naughty Dog and Squaresoft would just make that up right?
Crystals have cool shapes.
Crystals are shiny.
Salt is a crystal, and it makes food delicious.
Sugar is a crystal, and it makes food delicious.
Superman's home planet is covered in crystal (I know I've ranted against this before, but my earliest exposure to Superman was all post-crisis stuff sadly) and Superman is awesome.

Of course, I'm not ruling "Volnutt has aspired to be a stripper since childhood" out of the question., in which case he probably ought to seek some therapy.

Enough of this high-falutin' theology that the Archdiocese puts out and nobody reads or comprehends. What is urgently needed is a teaching pamphlet on the following topic:

"How To Maintain Your Sense of Stillness/Hesychia While Preparing Seafood For Dinner and Sharing a House with Multiple Cats"

It's about time! We need more randomness.

Cherry and apple are my favorites. Although I'm partial to strudel.

Pumpkin with whipped cream is the best.  Banana Cream is second.

As a side note, is there anyone out there who can write banana without singing the No Doubt song?  I can't.

Strawberry rhubarb and I was unaware of such a song. I sometimes think of Raffi's "Banana Phone" but only because it was an internet meme.

No way. That **** is bananas.

The idea of banana creme pie sounds amazing, but I can't stand cream in any form. I just love bananas.

Worst pie? Key lime. Without a doubt.

So, limes are awesome in everything except for pie!
