This picture was sent to me by the BFF, with a note: "for god's sake, use this one next time."
So, here it is. See, he's not always a freak with a chip clip in his bangs. Sometimes he's a freak without a chip clip in his bangs. Hee.
This morning, I experienced the first real sign that spring is nearly here. I ate my first Thin Mint. Whoo hoo! (Don't worry, Stefanie, I ordered some Tagalongs, too.) Gotta love those Girl Scouts.
I had a pretty good weekend, including spending a bit of quality time with New Guy Friday night. Then he went off to get his kids, and I spent Saturday checking things off my to-do list. One of the items was checked off by actually remembering, in time, the huge used book sale put on yearly by a local private school. I NEVER remember until it's too late, but this year I did, and scored a big stack of mostly hardcover books for a mere $21. Whoo hoo!
Yesterday my new next-door neighbors put up a swingset and a see-saw in their backyard. There haven't been any more toddler sightings, but I think the installation of playground equipment makes it pretty clear what's coming, don't you? Poor Dolly and McBeady.
Last night I watched a chunk of the pre-Oscar coverage on E!, and made it through most of the ceremony before dozing off on the couch. My personal highlight? Gary Busey insanely accosting Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Garner and Laura Linney on the red carpet. WHAT THE HELL WAS HE ON? Jennifer Garner's expression was priceless.
And, I just have to put this out there...Tilda Swinton rocks, there is no doubt, but WOULD IT KILL HER TO PUT ON A LITTLE MASCARA?! It's the Oscars, for cryin' out loud.
I'm probably just a little jealous of the amount of self-confidence it takes to go out in public, much less walk the red carpet, with invisible eyelashes. I could never do it.
And now, if you'll excuse me, I have to figure out what the hell I'm going to share anonymously with the blogosphere on Wednesday. All of you people who've been working on yours since the LAST blogshare? I think I hate you. (But in a good way.)
