A Red-Letter Day

Thursday, June 29, 2006

I finished my thank you notes.

Now, my goal was to finish before 6/22--two months after the wedding. But 6/28 (last night)... I'll take it. There are still 3 addresses I need to dig up, but all writing of text is complete. This comes on the heels of Kristy Crawford's post, the importance and art of writing notes, etc. etc., so I feel somewhat blogger-timely. I'm not only timely, but extremely relieved. Any notes written after this will be gravy. Icing. Fun, maybe.

Special thanks to the NBA for having a really long drafting process. Without you, this block of uninterrupted writing time would not have been possible. Thank you.

(I hope no one reading this had their thank you note lost in the mail...)

I'm wearing a pink-and-white striped headband in this same shape today (they didn't have the picture of my exact pattern).

Are headbands alright to wear to work in the adult world? I feel a bit too Caddyshack today, in my navy a-line skirt, white sweater, and pink-and-white striped headband. But I love it. When else are you supposed to wear a headband? Not just for tennis. It's too darn hot here, anyway, to wear pretty tennis clothes. We don't even really play tennis (Jonathan does sometimes).

Thoughts on headbands? (Thick ones?)

Clue: What are the odds?

Monday, June 19, 2006

As Jonathan says, my experience last night ranks up there with the Longhorns winning the National Championship in football and running a marathon.

I won Clue on the very first turn of the game.

What are the odds, really? There are 6 suspects, 6 weapons, and 10 rooms, right? A 1 in 360 chance? Is that even right? As Mrs. Peacock, I moseyed into the Conservatory, because it was the only room I could get into with the number on the dice, and guessed the candlestick because it was sitting the closest to me on the board. The guess went all the way around the circle with no evidence, so I thought, what the heck? I'll look in the confidential envelope. There they all were: Mrs. Peacock, the candlestick, in the Conservatory.

I was the first turn of the game.

Has this happened to anyone else, ever? Could playing this game possibly be as memorable ever again?

Hot pics

The pictures are up and hopping. And there are lots. If you were there, don't give up--there's most likely a picture of you in the reception section.

p.s. What's the freaking deal with no one updating anymore? And by no one, I mean EVERY SINGLE LINK to your right of blogs I read and love and cherish. Come on, people.
