Could They Bee More Annoying
Weather is beautiful here. Tax time is over, hoooooray hooooray. He slept through 7 whole hours last night, unusual for him, and today we are going out for barbecue and grocery shopping.
More highlights from Jason's birhday: Auntie M came down with Michael, and Michael had just come from a lacrosse game with his face painted with black triangles on the cheeks. I asked him if the black stuff was a regulation thing, like the smear that football players put under their eyes, or was it a fierce thing, ala "Braveheart"? He said it was a fierce thing, that the whole team paints their face to scare the other team. I can see how that could work. Michael has gotten amazingly tall. I had an interesting conversation with January and Allan, when I asked Allan to explain the Hollywood obsession with Kabbalah. We talked about Jewish Mysticism, numerology in ancient texts, and how Kabbalah is an old and complicated thing, and that Hollywood Kabbalah is "Kabbalah for Dummies". January says that people spend their whole lives reading and studying and trying to understand the mysteries, and you just know that Britney Spears is home studying the Torah 8 hours a day.
We watched the recorded Amazing Race last night, and then watched October Sky, which I had checked out of the library. That movie holds up very well.
