It's crazy to me that they have great-grandparents. I felt my grandparents were so old, and that I was always on borrowed time with them. Matt's grandparents lived into their late 80s/90s. One grandmother is still alive, but she has bad dementia now. She's like 93.

This made me think that I obviously needed to show Terry Kitties my husband’s new Deadpool tattoo. Our 10 year old son is obsessed with Hello Kitty and all things cat related. (Seriously, he’s made us watch the Terry Kitties episode at least 50 times)

Go call your great grandparents right now, if you're lucky enough to still have them. Call your grandparents, too. You'll only have so many chances to make those phone calls, and you're going to miss them like hell when you've run out of them.

Matt's grandmother will be missed, because she was so loved, and left such a tremendous legacy through the family she created. Three children, seven grandchildren, eleven grandchildren. What a remarkable life, lived by a remarkable woman.

To view the journey your grandchildren's lives intimately, but still with enough distance that you don't bear the pains of being their parent. I'm just in awe of it all.

To see your children become matriarchs and patriarchs. To see them lead full lives and affect so many things around them. To see your grandchildren go from babies you spoil to incredible adults.

To see them not just as young children, but as people who have thoughts and ideas and opinions. As people with dreams and aspirations, with ideas how how they're going to change the world around them.

When she passed yesterday, Matt's grandmother had 11 great-grandchildren. Some are toddlers, some have graduated high school. How remarkable is that? To live a long, full life and see all these new people in the world, existing because she did?

That grandmother got to see great grandchildren, though they were so young when she died they barely remember her. But I think of it must have been for her, how it must feel to see your legacy continue.

The grandmother I was closest to died two days before I turned 30, and I still miss her every day. But I was happy that she died, because she was 89 and suffering. All the family in her generation had died, and most of her friends. We all have a time we need to go.

Matt's got an older brother and cousins in their 40s. How wonderful is it to have your grandmother in your life for that long? One of my grandfathers died before I was born, the other when I was 7. One of my grandmothers had bad dementia and forgot me by my 20s.

Matt's grandmother died last night. I've got an interesting relationship with death, since I survived stage 4 cancer and all, so while I'm a bit sad I'm more in awe. She was a month away from turning 91, which is a hell of a life, and a rich one, too.

Possibly important to mention that my cereal of choice is cornflakes, which get soggy rather quickly. Second choice is Grape Nuts, which I prefer eating with yogurt or kefir, because I'm secretly a 75 year old woman.

Here's another cereal strategy I often use, which is especially helpful in this sort of situation: pour the cereal a bit at a time. Essentially float it on top, then keep replenishing. This pretty much guarantees non-soggy cereal.

Controversial stance: I pour the milk into the bowl first. This way the cereal ends up displacing some of the milk, allowing me more time before the bulk of my cereal gets soggy. I feel this is the only correct way to be eating cereal, even if it’s essentially tiny Oreos

What the fuck is this? Is this really a cereal?? Is this just a box of teeny tiny cookies you pour into milk? Do people thing that’s a good breakfast? And why am I still dunking Oreos in milk like a schmo when I could be slurping them out of a bowl?

Angry at myself for never starting an emo band called “Three People Who Have Never Been in My Kitchen”.

Was I not saying this two nights ago? I have co-signage now. Go pull this up on Netflix ASAP.
