Quick Takes


--1--

For the first time in about a year, I started weeding one of my flower beds.  It is now apparent to me that I can grow children or flowers, but not both. Does anyone know where to buy Agent Orange?

In the spring, gardens are so full of promise.  The weeds haven't grown out of control. The bulbs come up and bloom all on their own. It seems so beautiful and so easy.  By mid-summer, even when I'm not pregnant, I tend to feel worn out and the weeds creep in.  By fall, everything seems to be in an impossible shambles and in the winter it will look dead no matter what I do.  But spring always comes again.  There's something philosophical in there, but I'll leave it to you all to tease it out.

JH went to the infant development lab at the local major university, where almost all of my kids have been taken in for experimentation.  They've mostly done studies on language development, but this one is looking at how kids learn to grasp at things.  Or something.  Mostly I like being able to say, "Kids, we've decided to sell you for scientific experiments."

Since I'm already doomed for posting that last clip, I might as well go ahead and post my other favorite song poking fun at Catholics.

One of my grade school teachers just asked to be my friend on Facebook.  Fortunately, it was the one grade school teacher I actually remember and liked.  It's still weird though.

Of course, if you really want to discuss weird -- my best friend from college is marrying my brother.  I'm happy for them. I am totally supportive of having a sister-in-law that I like.  However, I still think it may be crazy and it's definitely weird.

Moving back to further media related randomness, when Tony Curtis died last week, everyone mentioned Some Like It Hot, which is a great film.  However, no one mentioned my all time favorite Tony Curtis movie -- The Great Race. It's awesome.

If it's any consolation, my garden has reverted to the jungle this year. For the foreseeable future, I'm going to concede defeat, let the buddleia take over there and concentrate on deck planters.
