Friday Ten (Late and Less)

1 - ammichaels was supposed to have her baby yesterday. I can’t wait to hear her good news!

2 - Yesterday my son took Shel Silverstein’s Falling Up with him to day camp … a book which has been gathering dust on his shelf as long as he’s been alive. I think he must have felt the call of National Poetry Month in his 9-year-old soul. (“I Grew A Foot” is his favorite.)

3 - If I don’t lay off the chips, I’m going to find myself pulling a Valerie Bertinelli on the cover of Writers’ Spread Weekly.*

4 - I have an “I Trust Snape” t-shirt. I mention this because my immense geekiosity came charging out yesterday when I was earnestly explaining to my co-worker’s 13yo why we should, in fact, trust that Snape will prove to be a good guy in the end. Not a nice guy, but one who will do whatever he has to do to defeat Lord Voldemort … including looking like a traitor.

5 - Don Imus getting fired: good. He’s obsolete. His voice has no place in 2007.

6 - It freaks me out that some of you are still getting so much snow. Granted, all we get is day after day of rain … but it feels like spring. The rain hasn’t fallen in a few hours – quick! Here’s some spring color:

*My late father-in-law had a quaint (?) way of describing someone who was overweight. “He sure likes his groceries.” Let it be known here and now: I don’t care how much other people like their groceries. You can be twig-like or Rubenesque – it’s all the same to me. I only care how much I like my groceries. I don’t want to have to go out and buy all new clothes.
