It's pretty neat to wake up smiling.

Ladies Night

Bernadette is taking me on a date tonight.
We got a movie, a pizza, and we're baking cookies.

We might be in love.

My Mother kept a lot of her past secret from me. As I am embarking on my love letter project, I'm learning there was a ton that occurred.
It's helping me understand more about her, which is what I always had grasped for.
I spoke with my Aunt this afternoon and told her about my project ideas, she was impressed and offered to help me out in filling any blanks that may come about.
She revealed a little to me about my Mother's first husband, of which I knew little about.

This is helping me feel closer to her, it's a comforting feeling.

11 O'Clock News Quote

"One of the pleasures of living in a small town is having a Post Office cat..." (said in a southern Alabama accent)

I love America..

Times VIII

Passion Pit- "I've Got Your Number"

The WHOLE song (pretty much)
0:00- 0:39
2:02- 2:36 (chorus)

Thanks to the cutest boy, I've been introduced into a new genera of music- I love it! I'm wondering how I've gone so long without happy music filling every minute of the day.

Du hast mich lachend wieder.

Times VII

Kate Nash- "Mouthwash"


And this is my body
And no matter how you try and disable it
Yes I'll still be here

J'ai Deux Amours

Recently, I faced my fears and went to Maryland to visit my Dad.
Unfortunately, my Mom was only a faint feeling there...
...then we went through her memory box; I lost it.

One of the goals of my trip was to collect love letters sent to her when she was in her 20s. When she was in foreign missile sales, she was involved with a French Duke.
I found about 25 of his letters, and 5 various other ones.

These letters are going to be the basis for a book I'm writing.
I spent 20 years with my Mom, and I'm eager to find out more about her from these poems and hand written wishes.

One of my customers used a word today that I totally forgot about, and needs to be used far more often:

-- Crud --

So old school...

Upon Googling it, I've found a few acronyms that should be noted:

-Create, Read, Update and Delete
-Chopper Riding Urban Dwellers
-Coloradans Running Ultra Distances (my favorite)
-It's also the name of an industrial rock band in Detroit.

Crud awareness, people.

This is going to be a good year.
