Bridget, Savana is such a sweetheart. Imagine a child her age being that upset but still worried about someone else's feelings - that's hard for me to do at 37!
Katy, that was a great article. That's exactly why I hate flashcards, DVDs, etc. for kids, too. Kids just don't learn that way.
Lydia, sounds like a rough day. Enjoy your glass of wine and your clean bedding. You deserve it.
Black Swan grossed me out, too. I really enjoyed the psychological aspect of all of it but I thought it went a little over the top. Good movie, though.
I went out to Trader Joe's and the cashier was talking in this fake accent like you hear people use at Renaissance fairs. I was a little amused. Then I went to Starbucks on the way home and the cashier there was using one of those artificially deep, slightly too loud radio announcer voices. I kept looking around for a TV camera or something, it was so odd hearing two cashiers in a row with fake voices. Am I just overly sensitive to this kind of thing? I suspect I must be.
