green little review

Poem for Wednesday and Even More Sheep and Wool!

We finally have Adam's Bar Mitzvah album, only 11 months after the event! It looks great, though -- after considering less expensive options, we went with one that's similar to Daniel's book. I went with my mom to pick it up after taking Daniel to his statistics AP exam, which was administered in the church across the street from his high school. After we went over the album with the photographer and got her to glue the invitations to the blank pages, we went out for frozen yogurt with blueberries and a bit of shopping. Then I came home to wait for both kids to call -- Adam had been at the state orchestra festival and I wasn't sure they'd be back in time for his bus home, which they were, and Daniel was supposed to let me know when he was ready to be picked up from the exam, which turned out not to be till 5 p.m.

Paul discovered on the Internet that it was Star Wars Day -- "May the Fourth Be With You" -- and since we actually own a Star Wars cookbook, he made Boba Fettucini (with zucchini and low-fat, low-sodium sauce) and Wookie Cookies (with chocolate chips and cinnamon), plus Princess Leia Pillsbury Buns. You may stop laughing at any time. The producers of Glee apparently decided that this should be Bad '80s Week, which were my formative years and I own pretty much every song they did except "Run Joey Run" (yes, even "Ice Ice Baby," which along with "Can't Touch This" is on one of our many greatest hits of their year collections). I feel like all the characters jumped the shark several episodes back (except Sue, who was always larger than life and can therefore get away with anything) but when I'm singing along with "Total Eclipse of the Heart," I don't care.

Bueno Cinco De Mayo!
