Dinnertable Conversations

Vegans don't bother me. Kosher People and Halah People don't bother me. I'm not even bothered the Lactose Intolerant. Their diets don't affect me. There are, however, occasional interactions with some people (you know who you are). And sometimes there're lines crossed. Where do i draw the line? There's a common legal expression that suggests: "Your right to throw a punch ends where someone else's nose begins."

Overcoming My Listening Prejudices

Don't ask me how it started. Somehow though, i just found myself watching a semi-fascinating mini-documentary on the making of a 1978 song that i never liked before, but now... well... just watch the song, then watch the documentary.

Yes, it's THAT time of year again.

I've already had pumpkin lattes, pumpkin-shaped cookies, and pumpkin-infused cookies. Actually, i mailed a batch of oatmeal pumpkin cookies to a friend in Afghanistan. I almost can't wait 'til we get around to pumpkin pie and pumpkin cake. But that's not why I'm so excited.

Wow. This baby thing is... wow.

Thanks though for all your well wishes and baby loot. Thank you especially to all of you with the expert advice and helping us watch her. We really do appreciate every little thing you do and you've helped to make this a great experience for us.

Thank you.

P.S. It seems her spirit-animal has been speaking up for her and imbuing her with mystic energies. Her superheroine name is THE DUCKLING -and you cannot resist her powers of adorableness.

The next 31 days are dedicated almost exclusively to Cucurbita etcetera. Pumpkin pies, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin cookies, toasted pumpkin seeds, cold pumpkin soup -everything edible. Kudos also to pumpkin candles, pumpkin incense, pumpkin potpourri, and everything smell-o-ble. Now is also the time for screening your PUMPKINHEADs (1988) and queueing up your NIGHTMAREs BEFORE CHRISTMAS (1993). Go ye now and rejoice.

The morning air was cool, i wore plaid to work, and i smelled fireplace smoke when i got home.
