Gin & tonics? Another reason to be happy right now.
- We drove all over the east foothills of the Coast Range today. I live in the most beautiful place in the world.
- Madame Speaker of the House. Madame Speaker. Speaker of the House Pelosi. Madame Speaker of the House. Do you know, I cried for joy when I heard that Madeleine Albright became Secretary of State. Madame Speaker of the House Pelosi. Respect.
- Sage knows where the emergency key is, and leaves things in my house. Beautiful things, that he made himself. They are sparkly and so pretty that I gasped when I saw them. And when my gorgeous shiny blue wheels are put together with my anodized blue chain and the sparkly blue handlebar tape, I am going to have the most princessy fixed-gear ever. When she’s put together, I’ll post a picture and then you can blind yourself, so that such perfect beauty will be the last thing you ever see.
- Ali left me a note, on the outside of the book JMPP sent me. Thanks, JMPP! Men, this is all you have to write:
Don’t you ever come home early? I’ve been enjoying my new porch since ~3:15, watching the yellow leaves rain down and tumble across the road, making one of my favorite noises (I mean, other than your laughter, of course). Maybe you’ll get here before I eat my arm off, and you can cook some yummy first dinner, or maybe I’ll have to suck it up & go cook some mediocre mish-mash I find in my cupboard. Ewh. Man, get here soon, so you can cook some food and I can sit in your kitchen and watch you wiggle your butt. I MEAN, work diligently while enjoying our conversation and drinking gin & tonics. Oh yum.I told you she is moving in with me, right? We’ll never leave the house.
P.S. Is this the porn I recommended? I didn’t know you could get it on Amazon! Amazin’!
UPDATE: I am at my library RIGHT NOW, and holding in my hands The End, Book the Thirteenth in a Series of Unfortunate Events. I cannot wait to see how it ends, and how a Variable Frequency Drive is going to save everything!
