Kwana, send your info to Jill Sorenson at her website. Congratulations! I can't wait to see what you think.
Item #2: Does anybody else out there watch Madmen?
We're renting it on Netflix (not done with season ONE, so no spoilers!) But, isn't it sort of a trip to see Angel's son in that role? DH and I had this whole discussion on that, in a way, he's kind of playing the same guy. But he's really quite good!
I love that show. Part of it is because the main character sort of has my same job, but most of all, it's fascinating how just a generation ago, women really had so little opportunity. (It takes place in 1960). I mean, we read historicals and freak out about how powerless women were, but this was not even 50 years ago! It is so fascinating, like another world. I really love the show. Not as much as Dexter, of course.
Okay, #3: I'm going to Mexico on Friday!!
My mother, the 70-year old rabblerouser that she is, has engineered a girls' family trip. It will be her and me and my two younger sisters.
I am looking forward to reading many dirty books on the beach, chowing down, and hopefully not reverting into my bossy, argumentative teenage self. I'm not really up on the details since those girls planned it, but I will be incommunicado from Friday to Tuesday. However, I will be supplying photos.
And #4: Save the words!
OMG, I have become obsessed with the Save the Words project. You go to this site and click on different rarely-used words, and it show their definitions, and you find one to save. You have to choose one you are willing to use in everyday circumstances, and it's like your word to save. I am so serious, I'm really taking a lot of time to pick. Because I really want to follow through, so it has to be the right word for me.
Once I choose one, I am going to post it in my sidebar with the definition, and you will see me using it in as many posts as I can! I encourage everybody to play. Let me know if you choose a word.
