What is stigmata?

In case you missed it,

"Stigmata is when Jesus gets his, you know, business all over you."

November 12th: Are you there God?

It's me, Margaret!!! Is anyone else slightly dreading the November meeting? On one hand, from this distance the awkwardness of puberty seems like it might be good for some laughs. On the other I have to talk about, um, woman things? With a group of people I don't know very well? Granted, seven months ago I had a complete stranger's hand all the way up my you-know-what, (and meanwhile I was carrying on a cheery conversation with her about why she quit her job at 3M), but that was The Miracle Of Birth, and that is different.

So, as I said to that nice lady who left 3M to go to nursing school, please be gentle. We have to make it a rule: nobody gets made fun of for what a dork they were in junior high.

Our next meeting is the second Monday of November, the book is a pre-teen classic, and I don't think we decided where we are gathering yet...? I will try to think of some theme related snacks. :)
