mmm, mulled mead. the reason for the season! you know who probably drinks mulled mead? rosemary. (wink wink)
i should really be working on one of the TWO LOOMING TERM PROJECTS i have to do while my mom is watching tori tonight, since i'd like to sleep sometime later this week and next, but claire got me started listening to pandora (i'm trampin' by patti smith) and joey decided it might be yummy to finish off this bottle, so now i'm just chilling (cozily). i'll do my homework. just gimme a minute. (it doesn't help that i finished the thing that's due thursday yesterday--i feel like i don't need to do anything until after that due date passes, which doesn't make any sense at all!)
i saw the new pride and prejudice. lizzy, if you haven't seen it yet, take this bit of advice--don't waste too much time comparing it to the mini-series. it's different. but it's pretty good, and it'll fly by, and before you know it, you'll have missed most of a good movie because you were thinking too much about a totally different good movie. as it is, i'm going to have to see it again.
tori said "bye-bye" three different times today, to joey, me, and granma. progress! she also knows a whole bunch of songs--one of the many toy pianos she has plays demo songs and she sings along with at least a third of them (7 or 8) as well as with various baby einstein tunes (mozart, beethoven, etc). her two most recognizable are still twinkle twinkle (abc's) and blue danube. she stands up all the time, sometimes pushing up just from the floor, but still no unassisted steps. soon! and soon she'll have more than four teeth!!! very soon!!!
joey's working too hard. he takes all these freelance jobs--and they all seem to be interesting/good jobs--and they just take up a lot of what might otherwise have been free time. free time is nice. free time is what i'm enjoying right now! with my mead! i'm looking forward to christmas break, though--mac will be back in town again, and maggie will be around, and i'll have less school stuff to worry about, and maybe we can even convince kirk to finally make good on his promises to visit! and we'll go and see king kong and the chronicles of narnia and maybe it'll snow. (ha!) by snow, i mean, maybe we'll have a hurricane like in the day after tomorrow (hurricane zeta??) and we'll have to outrun the freeze!!! or, maybe not. maybe it'll be so warm, we can take tori to the beach--sand is a good surface to learn to walk on.
