"Somebody's gonna drop everything, Run out and crank up their car..."

Never stop to think 'what's in it for me' or 'it's way too far'
They just show on up with their big old heart
You find out who you're friends are

(Tracy Lawrence, "Find out who your friends are")

Yes, I like country music. You got a problem with that??

So....Guess who locked her keys in her car? When I called her, EE Sally said, if you call Triple A, you'll waste a lot of time, I'll come. I was on my way home, parked at the Taco Bell, in Etna, and she is the only person with an extra set of my car keys, so I did call her first, saying, first, "I can call Triple A." She said, "I'll rescue you."

Which, she did, and then I stood outside my unlocked car and she sat in hers and we talked about random things like why Peabody HS had their prom on a school night...

Also, thank you for all the comments and emails. I've started listening to It's called a breakup because it's broken (which is a much better book than He's just not into you) and I think my heart is moving on.

So I'm just a simple gal, trying to figure out how to not whine too much and make this relevant but still be me, which is smart but smarting, and not really interested in hearing breastfeeding stories this week.

In other news, NH Sally said (as we sat on her terrace in the shade over lunch), she'll plan my wedding shower and we'll have sangria and we'll play the "mawiage" scene from The Princess Bride. Wow, I'm excited about that. Now I just need to find a man...*

(which for some reason made me think of Monica Geller and her jam plan and then her baby plan.)

*(which made PJ at work grab her hands over her mouth...) (She's often apt to say that the only reason they're still married is laziness--she's too lazy and he never gets rid of anything.)

Bed. I think it's time to go to bed.

Referring to your picture of the bridal shower, I think I would have nodded of myself - just like the lady to the far right! Bridal dresses out of toilet paper - what's that about?

And I've never watched the Princess Bride - is that a bad thing?

Well, Princess Bride is a pretty important movie. And an excellent book. People here still quote it, and it came out when I was 15 (twenty years ago.) But I won't hold it against you.

Oh, and about going to bed--I didn't get to sleep until after the first half of Conan (so, like 2 am.)

On occasion, I enjoy country music too.

So I guess you won't be reading my upcoming post about breastfeeding, huh? Oh well. I can understand that, it's a topic that is only of interest if it actually pertains to you. Last year, I would've never even thought twice about breastfeeding. Today, it consumes me.

And since amy did it, here is mine.....
"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father prepare to die."

Vizzini: He didn't fall? Inconceivable!
Inigo: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
