And, while I've got you . . . the latter part of this week has been headachy, hence the quiet. But, whilst fighting Picasa and a migraine, I've been very entertained.
Some things Isabel did, today:
- Popped bubbles in a sink full of water
- Played soccer with an earplug
- Attacked the fringe on a woolen throw rug
- Pounced Fiona
- Tried to flush the toilet, repeatedly
Things Fiona did:
- Stress ate
- Got pounced
- Hid from Isabel
Things husband did:
- Got stuck behind a flaming, car-carrying, 18-wheeler (He is still waiting for firefighters to clear the road at 12:20 AM)
I didn't make it to my Face-to-Face book group on Wednesday night because a migraine sent me to bed, but I am only 1/3 of the way into Empire of the Summer Moon, anyway. It's a great book; it's just heavy on people slaughtering each other. I get weary of the violence and set it aside, now and then. I'm not sure reading stories about WWII in Kurt Vonnegut's Armageddon in Retrospect was necessarily the right choice for a break from Comanches and Texans killing each other but, as always, I'm thoroughly impressed with Vonnegut.
Just walked in:
- Paris My Sweet by Amy Thomas - from Sourcebooks, for review
- Learned Optimism by Martin E. P. Seligman - purchased
- A box of coffee that husband ordered online. Mmmm.
Logan's Run starring Michael York and Jenny Agutter - I was pleased to note that I recognized the source when Peter Ustinov quoted from T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.
That's all for now!
