Hearth

Friday

Administration
Happy birthday to dandelion_diva!

Happy early birthday to irana, magenta_girl, and scouseboy, who all advance a year over the weekend!

Hello to new reader timba!

Medical
The usual. Plus some tingliness.

Harry Potter Day!
We're probably going this afternoon. Any other Atlantans going this afternoon?

Turkey
I have 11 confirmed people. Dad insisted on an 18-to-20-pound turkey. I negotiated down to a 16-to-18-pound turkey, because dude, a 20-pounder will take forever to cook. I barely eat turkey. Elayna barely eats turkey. So Dad wants 20 pounds for 9 people. Dad's on crack.

Reason for size ranges: I order from Whole Foods. They totally prepare the turkey. You just have to take it out of the bag and put it in the oven. Meaning that I don't have to handle a corpse. Yay Whole Foods!

Hi, Tony's mom!

*is all shy again now*

Friday Memeage...
Wearing
Red chenille turtleneck, cuz baby, it's cold outside! Jeans, "honey sweet" panties, monkey socks.

Reading
I'm reading Woken Furies by Richard Morgan. Elayna is tearing her way through Narnia; she's almost done with The Horse and His Boy.

The Narnia books were the first thing I ever bought for her. At two months pregnant, I worked in a bookstore. I had a feeling she was a girl, but Just In Case, I didn't want to load up on "A Little Princess" and "The Secret Garden" with the little necklaces. Narnia, though.... whichever gender she turned out to be, I knew she'd love Narnia.

Planning
Thanksgiving grocery shopping and Harry Potter today.
Quiz Bowl and celebratory lunch (whether she wins or not - it takes courage to go up there!) tomorrow.
Girl Scouts on Sunday.

It is a very Elayna weekend.

You?

Why I love my husband

So last night, we were watching Reunion, a show that manages somehow to combine terrible writing with really good plot twists that we don't see coming.

The plot of Reunion: Group of six friends. One of them is murdered the night of their twenty-year reunion. Twenty episodes, every episode being a year in the life (last night was 1991), with flashbacks interspersed with the detective interviewing the friends/suspects here in 2005.

So Adam turns to me, and he says:

"Next season? They should do this with the cast of Saved by the Bell."
