My hand hurts so I'll be brief. In the past week, some highlights include
1) attending not just one, but TWO burlesque performances and not so secretly wondering how proficient I myself could become at swirling tassels, perhaps in a "Swedish Singing Astronaut" number?
2) cooked a 14 lb Prime Rib Roast for Easter and managed to ALMOST replicate my gluten free Yorkshire popovers,
3) spent a night NOT sleeping on a pile of towels on the floor in the office (long tedious story for another day),
4) spent serious time sprucing up my usual deviled eggs with bacon, only to forget to serve them.
I learned something about TULIPS this Easter. (I usually buy tulips as they are among the most unlikely to kill my cats) The lady who was working in the floral department told me that if I dropped "7 pennies" into the vase, the flowers would not bend, as tulips have a tendency to do after as little as a day. I got home and wondered if it had to be exactly 7 pennies. I only had six. The results have been jaw-dropping. Truly. The tulips look lovely, and are proudly reaching for the sky - Day four! Thank you for that gem of tulip knowledge, flower lady!
