+ I am too old to be giving homework helps after 9pm. Sad, but true. At least college homework never makes either of us as cranky as high school homework did. Why is that, anyway?
+ Hannah says Danny and I each have 3 good parts of our brain; mine are Art, English and History, Danny's are Math, Computers and Science. She says we each only passed on two, and that's why she's bad at English and Math.
+ Our week of birthdays is almost over. I am about celebrated out! There are still two more cakes and one more dinner. Somehow I'll make it through.
+ Today I wore a shirt I hadn't worn since I was in Rome. Hannah wore a tshirt I brought home from my first visit to Rome. It was impromptu Rome day. Of course I loved that.
+ I think I have heartburn tonight! What's that about? Could it be I had Inidan Food for lunch and birthday cake for dinner?
+ I have a lot of old friends I miss. Mostly because they moved away.
+ I may or may not be going to see Barry Manilow with a bunch of old school girlfriends.
+ I am trying to listen to Anne Lamott and make myself Write. It is amazing the things I will do (and clean) to try to avoid it. Silly!
+ I wish all of my friends watched General Hospital and wanted to talk with me about it. None of them do. In the olden days, Eben used to pretend for me, but now he's always at work.
+ Anthony Bourdain had a BBQ show on the other day. I was told the sign for the BBQ that used to be my dad's was shown, but I didn't catch it. They did feature Rosedale though, which has become my favorite BBQ since my dad passed. It's where he worked when I was a tiny little girl. I have a lovely memory of going in through the back door and having him make me half a ham sandwhich. Thanks, dad. And whoever drove me there (probably my Grandpa because my mom didn't drive then).
+ I haven't played The Sims since sometime yesterday afternoon. Well done, Shelly.
+ Have you ever noticed that British people say "Well done!" when Americans would say "Good job!". I often wonder what that says about our societies. I haven't figured it out yet.
+ I know you know this, but I think this would be a good time to say again that I wish I were British.
