It's fun...

when you fall asleep at your computer desk. I think I accidentally sent several pages of nothing but the letter (b) to Condoleezza Wright. Now I'm afraid she won't read it because it's too long.

Night night everybody.

Bon Ape-tit

Yes, the title is a joke. Wanna see something better I picked up from one of Karen's blogs she follows? The little girl is probably 9 to 12 months old, but speaks very eloquently.

Almost done

The weatherization folks are almost done. It was a warm day today and the house stayed cool, a good sign.

Hope y'all are following my music blog, Theme and Variations, that I write with Mike.

Music in my head: "A Change Would Do You Good," Sheryl Crow

New Song

This evening, during our going-to-bed ritual, Ethan and I made up the words to a new song. The music is based on a familiar Mozart work (which was, in turn, based on a naughty French song), sometimes referred to as "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star."

The lyrics are simple, and you know the tune:

Hics and hurps and slips and slurps
Ethan's got the hiccup burps.
Hiccups here and hiccups there;
Hiccups flying in the air!
Hics and hurps and slips and slurps
Ethan's got the hiccup burps.

Music in my head: I bet you can guess...
