Windy and Jeff, Happily Ever After! Click here for The Wedding and views of soo many relatives.
It’s Wedding Bells! and ALL the kids will be here. HURRAY!
Mighty Mouse Will Save The Day! The girls have taken a fancy to Mighty Mouse on youtube – we watch a few 6-8 minute videos each week.
I need to tape record Lilly calling out Might Mouse Will Save The Day. Rome can sing ‘Here he comes to save the day’ (etc…) like the song and Lilly copies her with a little hint of the tune and her own 2 year old pronunciation and it is hysterical.
Oh goodie, Oscar movie release season is upon us and we get to watch the good movies.
I just saw The Artist – black and white, silent, and entirely wonderful. Wow.
Moneyball is really good, and I’m looking forward to The Descendents, J Edgar, I never saw Midnight in Paris or Tree of Life, War Horse might be too much of a tear jerker for me, My Week With Marilyn, certainly more…
From after everyone went home from the wedding until now I have been doing a whole lot of not too much.
I allowed myself a couple of days to succumb to an allergy attack, I subscribed to the digital version of the NY Times (down to $15/month which I am thrilled to pay…which reminds me I’ve been lax in supporting my Public Radio stations), visited friends at lunch, saw the kids, and…
As the lead-up to my little sister’s wedding I took her for the ritual cleansing at the Korean Spa where they first scrub you down with varying degrees of sandpaper before you get your goopy and delicious massage.
From now forward it’s all wedding all the time and I probably won’t get to putting pictures in until next week.
Then I got to do the funnest activity ever, taking the girls for a walk around the block. Rome and I used to go for a walk around the block almost every week and this was the first week we took Lilly along.
It was SO much fun, talking about our favorite places, naming the flowers, hopping on the garden paths, visiting with the passers-by, stopping off at Daniella’s. FUN!
All week I had to call in for jury duty. Ok no Monday ok no Tuesday ok no Wednesday ok no Thursday…bummer YES Friday. So I went in and then realized after the big ‘you must be available for 5-7 days’ if you get called to a jury that I had better not risk missing any of the festivities around Windy’s wedding…so I had to ask for a postponement, which was granted, and now I have to do the whole thing over again in March.
Down at the courthouse it was the first day of the Conrad Murray deliberations and quite the scene it was.
Ben and Bonnie had an extra ticket and invited me to join them at this awesomely cool event in Century City.
It was at heart a fund raiser for UC Berkeley where they extolled all things Cal (they could have an entire freshman class of perfect SAT scores but turned down a slew of them, they’ve generated the most Peace Corps volunteers of any university in America, state funds now represent 12% of their operating expenses, etc. etc.).
Then we got to enjoy a fabulous speaker, voted UC Berkeley’s best professor a record eight times, the entirely entertaining and well honored professor Alex Filippenko, presenting on the topic Dark Energy and the Runaway Universe. Wow, like getting to go to the best class without the risk of a quiz.
