No New Ideas Available

So Chuck was complaining about how tedious it was to use his Sonicare toothbrush for the full 2 minutes, and I suggested that they should use 2 minutes of music instead of the beeps. Well, Google informs me that musical toothbrushes are already out there. This always happens when I get a marketable idea. For instance, Alpha Bitch. There's a cute play on "alpha male." Too late; somebody is already selling Alpha Bitch tee shirts. Catmosphere. Somebody did a so-named series of paintings. Snivelization. A song.

Here's a retro-style apron I made Julie for her birthday. The fabric is from a swell site called Reprodepot.

I Turn 53

Julie made two wonderful dips: one had olive oil and capers; the other was creamy. Mary brought a bottle of Barolo wine made by a co-worker's husband. Steve brought his friend Paul, who graduated from Rice in 1979. I graduated in 1977. Small world. The hopping lederhosen presided over my segue into year 53.
