I’ve invented some pretty decent aliases over the years; Georgia Tot Sint Jans comes to mind, as does the #1 champion last name of Calhoun. And I have a new one (inspired in part by the Grocery Gateway delivery person): Tabitha Soxfield. I’m not sure yet what I’m going to do with that name, but something. It’s just marvy. And a google search came up empty-handed (did I mean Tabitha Foxfield? nope.) so it’s mine all mine.
News: Had my first ballet class with Sarah D. We both did very well (she is better at the ballet technique, and so on) and I am sooooo glad we are going. My life has already improved by a million. (That is a serious exaggeration.)
Books: Just finished Skellig by David Almond…I’ve read several books for young’uns lately, and I think this one takes the cake. It’s such a straightforward book about the most extraordinary things; you just march along between the sadly realistic and the realistically fantastical. Claire tells me a film adaptation is in the works and I can see how it would translate quite well. I’ll be reading David Almond’s Clay next. (The TPL has given me a stack of books all at once and I wonder if I’ll manage to get thru ’em.)
Today: A pumpkin patch with Erino and S’rain since it’s autumn, officially.
TV TK: The Office starts up again this week and you can bet I am happy about that. Bet on it. It’s a safe bet. Tho I am reluctant (and have already missed ep. #1), I think I shall try ANTM again this cycle. It will be awful and exactly as it has been for eight cycles but but but so hard to look away. Have I expressed my undying love for Weeds? I am rewatching S.1 with R. and just saw the episode that ends with Selia (sp?) saying, “I took a lude.” Oh it knocks my socks off.
The font is now bigger as per K’s request. Too big or just right?
