This has been the best year of my life so far. I am so fortunate to have the life I have. I wish I could box it up and share it.
We had what we call “birthday spaghetti” last night, and it was the best ever. It’s basically a homemade bolognese, with pancetta. Spaghetti’s been my favorite food since before I could say it. We watched Amélie. I had somehow forgotten how amazing it is. I need to start collecting Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s films.
No big plans for today, just working. I’m going to Arizona this weekend, though, for my cousin Amy’s wedding. The whole family will be there, it should be lots of fun. I only wish Laura could come too, but she’s studying for her third round of board exams.
Have you seen Delicatessen? I love that one too. That movie is how I learned that the French word for “clown” is “clown.” 😛
I haven’t, shameful as that is. It’s on my list. I loved La Cité des enfants perdus, though.
Bon anniversaire, mon cher! Now, you remember how many cupcakes you have to trail along the stairs leading to the room where the paint doesn’t want to dry . . .
Merci, ma petite noisette. Trente-deux, ça fait trop des petits gâteaux. Mais c’était quand même une bonne idée.
You look just like your cartoony face!…but your eyes are symmetrical.
Thanks! It is a better likeness than I usually manage.
Speaking of which, your icon is hilarious, I’ve been meaning to tell you I like it a lot better than the one I threw together. That glare is priceless.
Why, thankya. I’ve been in a glarey mood lately. Although I still love the red-streaked, coffee-chugging icon.
