A Postcard from My One Day Vacation.
What kind of people have splatters on their ceilings?
Taking a vacation day to clean was a practical and spiritual mistake. Better that I had stayed with my initial plans to prepare for my sister's visit by putting 40 watt bulbs in all the sockets - aka the "Blanche DuBois" maneuver.

Book, blogs, magazines, school stuff, blogs, noticed ceiling, book, moved around remaining Christmas decorations, contemplated decaplets as next big "thing." Wish you were here.

40-watt! Why we'd need 20-watters. :-)

I wish I knew...
(My best guess is Coca-Cola. I hope.)

Anne Lamott! I'm thinking you must have a high tolerance for political irritation. :-)

Very high!
(And it was a $2 signed copy. Kind of like buying a chartreuse sweater three sizes too small just because it is a really cheap too-good-to-pass-by deal.)
