Thank you for the adorable activity mat, and please accept our apology for taking this long to say so. Timmy really enjoys playing on the mat, and we think of you every time he uses it. During this particularly challenging and hectic year, having such wonderful friends and family has been a stabilizing force for us, and we have felt so grateful to have you even when we have not been able to express it when or how we would have preferred. Thank you again, and we hope you enjoy the picture of Timmy on the mat!
I have a Jeopardy audition tomorrow.
I have in no way prepared for this at all. Today, instead, I am writing a paper on subversive children's books.
I HAVE AN AUDITION FOR JEOPARDY TOMORROW! (Anyone else going to be at a Georgetown hotel at 11:30?)
@Jaya I'd go that route just for the novelty of the tiny delivery containers. Also, the joy of ordering five warm olives for one.
I think one of the great things about Jolie's tone is that she assumes you know nothing NOW, but that you are capable of learning. She never assumes that we don't know how to clean X because we're stupid, but rather than no one ever taught us.
@Lily Rowan I mean, imagine my surprise when the Ladies of Jezebel did not call for my head over a discussion of vaginal topics!
Oh, f*ck off Gwen.
I tell you what, *this* 40-year-old suburban mom has made her little kids sit in the Highlander with her, strapped in their carseats in the driveway, till she finished listening to of a number of these songs, very loud, on Sirius's Lithium (90s alternative) channel. Oh Mazzy Star, I'll never ever be over "Fade Into You." On a related note: There really should be more songs about happily day-drinking with strangers while the workday world goes on around you.
