The title of this post has absolutely nothing to do with anything. I've had Carly Simon stuck in my head for days, I'm hoping this might exorcise her.
++ As I packed up our hotel room on the Sunday morning in Avignon, The Husband was watching X-Men First Class and refusing to get up and get moving. He turned to me and said, "This movie looks good, I'd like to see how it turns out", so I said, "well that's good since you saw how it turns out when we bought the DVD and watched it a couple of months ago."
++ The Circus Gods clearly hate me. The circus came to The LPV and for the second year in a row, I've missed it. I didn't get to see the two llamas, two horses, and a goat, this time due to Papa's Wife's mother's 90th birthday party. I'd be mad, but it would be kind of silly to start a feud with a 90 year old.
++ Want to know what I did on the 4th of July? I made pompoms, a whole bunch of Martha Stewart pompoms while watching Friday Night Lights (the movie not the series). The pompoms were for that party I had to go to when I should have been at the circus.
++ I did one other thing on the 4th... I watched a fireworks display on my laptop but to make it more authentic like, I lay on my back and held the laptop over my face. I would love to say that it was just like I was there, but I'd be lying.
++ Last Thursday after a stressful day dealing with some residual stuff from the little family emergency we had, I unwound by sipping Bordeaux and watching Wall-E with Papa. I truly believe a little wine and Pixar can go a long way. Plus, Papa had never seen Wall-E so that was a bonus.
++ Here's a fun fact about me; I have four mothers (my mom, The Husband's mom, Papa's Wife, and my father's wife) but since my dear Dad passed away last year, I'm down to only one father and that's Papa. So I'll take wine and Pixar with him any chance I get.
++ Remember Brazil Day last year? Well check out this insanity... Brother-in-Law and Honey Jr. actually got another village to PAY THEM to host a Brazil Day there. You never know, you may have a Brazil Day coming to a village near you soon.
++ Want to know something that Texas and Provence have in common (besides the hunting and shooting and stuff)? Scorpions. I found two on my staircase last Friday. Not cool Provence, not cool.
