"I wish you a tolerable Thursday. That's all any of us can hope for." — April Winchell, comedian
I just read this awesome post on Amalah. So funny because I too have heard "I've been wanting one for a 100 years" regarding whatever new toy is on Will's dream list. I so want to buy him everything his heart desires but at the same time I don't want to buy him everything his heart desires. (Though I will admit to a weakness to books.) But had I been in Amy's shoes, that pillow would have come home with us too. And some legos.
One of my favorite sites in the whole wide Web is shirt.woot! New T-shirt at midnight, $10 free shipping, limited run. Some sell out, some don't. But even if it does sell out, you can still buy the T-shirt for at least a week for $15. Two T-shirts just arrived today. Check it out and tell me you don't love "Fresh Cake" which will be the next T-shirt I buy. Or will it be "It Came Out of Nowhere?"
My friend Laura just interviewed Alice Walker ("The Color Purple") for a Birmingham Civil Rights Institute oral history project. Laura gets to met all kind of interesting people through her job at the Institute as an archivist. More on the oral history project here.
This could have been us!!!! We could have met Dolly Parton. I really like Dolly Parton. Sigh ... We love the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. We get a free book each month for both boys until age 5. They are quality books ... like we go into the bookstore and see the same books on the shelf. Some we just read once or twice. Some have become our favorites to be read again and again. I highly encourage you to check the Web site to see if your area is participating.
To watch "The Men Who Stare at Goats" and more Dr. Who!!! To read ... like I have time to read ...
