Hmmm... so what's been going on, you ask? (Okay. So you probably haven't asked, but I'm going to tell you anyway.)

Let's see. My mom and I took the girls to see "Over the Hedge" today. It was Hannah's first movie in a theatre ever, and Grace's second (I took her to see "Madagascar", but she made me leave 45 minutes into it because she wanted to go to the pet store next door. I was pissed. I wanted to see the rest of the movie.) Anyway, they both did really well, surprisingly. Grace wouldn't sit still, but that's normal for her. Hannah sat quietly the entire time, and only had to go potty twice. There was a large bag of popcorn that accidentally got dumped all over the floor, but I did that, so we're just not going to talk about it here. ;)

I'm sitting here right now, attempting to print out some of my writing samples for my big, bad interview tomorrow morning. But see, I've eaten nothing except 5 Pringles all day AND I've had 3 beers, so I'm feeling a little, um, unfocused right now. So I've got some crinkle cut french fries baking right now in the toaster oven, and hopefully after I eat them, I can print out the rest of my samples without worrying that "Fuck this!" hasn't mysteriously gotten typed into the middle of the user's guide somewhere.

Those Pringles I mentioned earlier are printed with "Kids' Trivia Questions." Great, no? So I'm reading one of mine and it says, "What do dung beetles eat?" And the answer, below it and upside down, says, "Animal droppings." Now I knew what dung beetles eat even before I read the answer. But are "animal droppings" really something you want to be thinking about as you're eating? The Pringles trivia reasearch dude should be fired. (And I say "dude" because it had to be a man that came up with that one.)

Found out my friend's girlfriend (who accidentally got all sorts of knocked up) has suggested the names Grace and Hannah, should she give birth to a girl. So she's got good taste in names apparently. ;) And the daddy (whom I've known since 5th grade) and his band will definitely be playing at the pigroast in July. Awesome! They're actually really good, and they show up at gig's with a beer bong, so I'm envisioning lots and lots of drunken fun. Can't beat that...

Can't wait to hear how the interview goes. Good luck!

I'm so jealous I don't get to attend the pigroast.

"But are 'animal droppings' really something you want to be thinking about as you're eating?" Ugh. Definitely a guy. Couldn't they give you trivia on... Oh I don't know, things that PEOPLE eat? Hmmm?

FYI gang, EVERYONE is invited to the pigroast. We always have out-of-state guests, so if you wanna come, I'll reserve a hunk of ham for ya.

(Seriously. You're all invited. LOL!)
