If you haven’t yet joined in on Friday Fragments (hosted by Half Past Kissin’ Time), today is a great day to do it. After reading my post, why not meander over to her place and check out some of the other great fragmenters?
***Sam accidentally broke our camera last weekend; he was messing around and dropped it, and the screen shattered. I had hoped that it might still take pictures and that I would just have to actually look through the lens and hope I got a good shot, but no, that isn’t working out. I am actually pretty sad about this; it was the first digital camera I have ever had, and I just can’t afford to replace it. Damn it to hell. Do you all know how much Owen and Co. are going to GROW, and you won’t even be privy to it?
***Speaking of growing, Eli is going to a friend’s house tonight to watch movies. This friend is a girl, and there are six other people going as well. I asked him if this was a girlfriend, and he said, “Not yet, but tonight might be the night I get up enough guts to ASK her.” I can’t believe he is actually thinking about possibly maybe asking a girl out. He is definitely growing up.
***Me, I just keep growing out. A friend of mine bought some chocolate stars and actually sent them to work with me so as to remove temptation from her house. Wasn’t that thoughtful? I found that I quite like to stick one in my mouth and then take a sip of hot coffee, and the chocolate gets all soft and melty…..sigh. No wonder my pants don’t fit anymore.
***I would really like to know what Anne Lamott thinks about President Obama. I have been re-reading all of my books by her (because she is my best friend, she just doesn’t know it), and she wrote several anti-Bush books, so I am curious to know what her thoughts about the new Prez. are. If any of you have an in with her, could you ask her and let me know? Also on this same subject, I wonder a little bit if I should be concerned that I really and honestly believe that we (Anne Lamott and I) would be friends if we knew each other. I also obsess a little bit about how I might go about meeting her. Clearly I have more than one screw loose. And have a few stalkerish tendencies.
***As the weather gets cooler, the bar business starts heating up. Walking to the office from my car this morning, I saw two broken bar glasses, a couple of empty beer bottles, a mostly-empty cake box, and a pair of underwear. Before you know it, I will be walking over frozen puke; ah, winter, she is on her way.
***Thank you all for your thoughts on my post yesterday. I have decided that I am not going to decide anything today, but will instead think of all your words, pray about it, and trust that the exact right answer for everyone will come. Hannah has already taken herself out of the equation, so that is one problem solved.
For more Friday Fragments fun, you know what to do.
