We are busy! The big boys seem to have endless parties/friends in town/concerts/club dates to attend, Youngest is just coming out of final exam coma, and K and I are doing some mini entertaining. The other night I drove a bit to visit the fellow one might refer to as my childhood sweetheart. He has a beautiful little antique home near where we went to school and a lovely wife (for as many years as K and I are married) and my favorite party food ever: a six foot hero.
You may be pleased to know that I had a slice of the American end as well as one from the Italian end. I am attempting to forget how much I weigh for the holiday break.
They had the most enormous Christmas tree ever, with thousands of lights. Really.
I'm a little pissed with Flickr. The new beta version doesn't have embed code, shows my Untitled at the bottom of each photo and is wonky to use. The old version has me look at other people's photos when I open it and is wonky to use. I need them to get their shit together.
I've made paper shapes. A designer in the office made them and I was intrigued. It wasn't easy but provided me with mindless work one morning - like doing a difficult jigsaw puzzle in 30 minutes. They are each one piece of paper.
We've bought spoons (and, well, eyebrow pencils) and can now feed K's family posole for dinner on the 29th. We didn't have enough spoons to give 17 people soup, you see.
Now all is right with the world.
We visited a new archery range yesterday. Less busy than the one in the city, no one was friendly, making the decision about where K might practice difficult.
THIS fucking kills me every time I look at it!
The Angel of Deaf.
I tell you, I'm crying.
Here - watch this. I'm meeting a friend, doing some shopping and then EATING THE CAVIAR SHE'S BRINGING.
The champagne is on ice.
