One. I love baking. One, because I love eating…desserts in particular. Two, because I love sharing the goodness. On this dreary afternoon I whipped up a Key Lime Pie with homemade graham cracker crust for Sunday night group. YOU GUYS, I even garnished it with little lime wedges because that’s how into it I was getting. It must have been well received because there isn’t any left. Bye, bye little pie.
Two. Emily took me to see Once at the Civic Center and we loved it. I had seen the movie and owned the soundtrack, so it was really fun to see the stage production. I thought it was incredibly creative, humorous, and the music is brilliant. The set operated as a working bar, so before the show started we got to go up on stage, have a beer and watch the musicians play. How sweet is that?!
Three. This week my boss is out of the country on vacation, sooooo I am solely in charge of holding down the fort *gulp*. I’ve never temporarily operated a non-profit on my own. Wish me luck. Send me good vibes.
Four. I really like this:
Five. On Saturday morning I Skyped my friend Melissande (we went to Morocco together). We haven’t reallllly talked in almost a year, which I kick myself for, but we do a pretty good job of exchanging snail mail. I can easily go off on rants about all the more negative ways technology is impacting life, but then it redeems itself with moments like this…when I can have a coffee date with this dear friend who lives thousands of miles away. I can’t wrap my arms around her, but I can see and hear her beauty loud and clear. I realize Skype has been around for years now, but it still astonishes me.
Six. Why did the man not mind being bald?………Because he didn’t want toupee for hair. Hehehehehe.
Seven. The kids I work with love to laugh at how often I have no idea what they’re talking about. And then they make me guess, which apparently becomes the funniest part. I’m hoping that this is endearing for them in some way. In case you were wondering, this week I learned that calling a girl a “thot” means you’re calling her a ‘hoe’ or ‘slut’. A “bae” is the person you call or text ‘Before Anyone Else’. I said they should get me Hooked-on-Ebonics…but then I realized they’re too young to know about Hooked-on-Phonics. So that joke failed. Then I felt awkward.
