That Spring will come again

I've decided that confidence is what I need, so that's what I'm going to get.

Baby Loaf

My sister Bony M had her baby on Saturday! I waited to post until they sent me some pictures. This is my nephew Anderson Isaac. Bony M says he has our family's lips and A's eyes, and I think she's exactly right. He was 5 lbs. 11oz., 19 inches long. This is exciting stuff.I like this picture of Bony M and A. There's something about the look in their eyes - a great happiness is what I'd guess it is. Anyway, now I'm an aunt twice over, with a nephew as well as a niece. Hoo-ray.

Soups on.

(1) Last night I simultaneously brushed my teeth and ran my foot under the cold water faucet in the sink. It was challenging, but I made it work.

(2) I laid out on the lawn for a bit with Ahem and Uffish during the windstorm. When it started to rain and get cold we stood on the porch, watched people run for cover, and we whistled at passersby. Ahem (hopefully accidentally)whistled a whoop whoop catcall type whistle at our 1st councilor who happened to be heading for his car in the driveway.

(3) My sister H came down to school, and on Sunday we got together and had a family dinner type thing at M-Lite's new place. I had a lot of fun, as I always do when us Drafts get together. Plus the Maoist, the Krentist and his sister, and two friends from back home that are H's age came. It was nice to see everyone and to tell stories. There's something comforting about it, something innately human I think. I can't quite put my finger on it.

(4) krebscout unpacked her paintings and the house is even more colorful than before. Come and see the egg painting. I like it best of all.

(5) Optimistic. is in Salt Lake for a couple of days. How sucky is that.

(6) I started my new job last week at a certain prominent Provo pizza place. Today was day 5, and I think I'm getting the hang of things, but it's kind of exhausting work and I come home tired every afternoon. My favorite part of the work day? Getting to dice up whole pineapples, cantaloupes, and watermelons. I always wondered how it was done and now I get to do it. Also, one morning while stocking the salad bar The Decemberists' The Perfect Crime was playing, which made me incredibly content. I've even managed to laugh a handful of times - once I went back to the dish room and I found a guy spraying a big round pot with a hose just for the sake of making it spin around and around really fast. He looked a bit sheepish when I caught him. It may be an interesting semester.

(7) I walked around campus with H yesterday and it felt really weird to me. It's probably because I'm not taking classes this Fall and because I hadn't been up on campus in a couple of weeks. I just don't know if I belong there anymore, or if I ever did to begin with. It was all rather odd, but it was good to spend time with H. At one point she demanded of me "Why are you not writing a script right now?!" She thinks I need to write for T.V. and I quite agree with her.

(8) Blowing on a person's stomach is hilarious, and I can't imagine it ever won't be. Also, the trunk of my car holds a lot more than I thought it could.

(9) I dreamed last night that my family was moving and selling the house. It was to become an outdoors school and I could not be consoled. My second dream was incredibly action packed and consisted of some sort of giant treasure hunt, just like in the movie It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. It may or may not have taken place in the 70's.

(10) While at a party on Monday I stole a decanter full of coins. I saw it on their end table and couldn't resist switching it out for my own vase full of coins which I happened to have in my purse. I'll return it; I just want to see if they notice first.
