"You can cook, I can appear human." - Linguini

I watched Ratatouille a couple hours ago and fell asleep in the middle, which has nothing to do with the quality of the movie (it's fantastic)and everything to do with how I feel at this moment in time, which is pretty crappy. Sore throats and harsh coughing shouldn't be allowed in the spring.

Especially not the day after a birthday party. Suzanne and Evan sang, and so did Ian, and Jed read poetry like Silverstein, and Beth read Levertov, and then Ben did the best thing ever: He sang Yonder Tree, for Hannah, who was the only person under 21 in attendance. She's 5 months old and the most adorable person in the world right now. I don't think we value babies enough in our world, and it was joyous to hold her. And Ben got us all involved making cow and goat and pig noises, which is fantastic. Most of the time when you're grown-up you don't get to do these things.

Or if you do, people think you're a little bit nuts.

It's good to have friends who don't think you're nuts, and share their talents.
