I was instructed by eBoy to record him playing and then post to YouTube or tumblr. I’m not sure of his motivation, but check out “serious face” at the end.

So, I present to you our mini-Beethoven by way of Schroder by way of Peanuts. Oh Tuesday.

Lee

image

I know you can never forget about Lee. He went from being a sweet fling to a deep obsession. You made him that amazing Valentine box from black satin ribbon. You stood outside his apartment in the rain and he never answered the door. Every one of your tears was washed away into the streets of the city. When you cried on my shoulder that night, your eyes were dry.

He captured your heart so deeply. You let him in so close to your light, and you weren’t afraid. But then you know what happened. The randomness, the unkind process of an ambiguous man not figuring out who he wants to be in the moment. I watched you crack and break and bleed out your love. When you returned, your eyes still glimmered and your smile was timid, but you were here.

Lee has never forgotten you.

In memory of a very special lost friend.

Turtle Tunnels? GTFO

On the drive to a from dropping Miss off at the barn yesterday, I noticed quite loudly the SIX new ba-da-dumps in the road. Pictured above you’ll see what’s being called “turtle tunnels” on the remote road that leads to the stables. In the past six years we’ve spotted turtles crossing the road exactly ZERO times and now there are six of these magical tire/wheel/suspension killing zippers in the asphalt.

Business Papa says they’re a boondoggle—I tend to agree.

For the Love of Ralph Lauren

So the Durant Beaded Charger is $225.00 and the Southern Fruit Bowl is $295.00. My version from an (e)sale in a neighboring town cost $5 and $7.50. Both pieces were heavily tarnished but polished up in a flash. Thanks to Momo and Mr. X for reintroducing me to this fun treasure hunting past time.

Night Time @ Life Time

Because of the holidays and two days of no school, I’ve visited the gym in the evening twice this week. It’s like a completely different place at night. The crowd skews super-heavily on the Asian side as well as a significant sampling of younger men (with broad shoulders and extremely narrow waistlines). I guess they all have more normal schedules and do things like work and go to school during daytime hours.

Anyway, the 7:45 Mon & Thu Ashtanga class is my new favorite. Namaste

Tonight’s dinner menu:

Anything you want. Because daddy isn’t cooking. The view above is from Above (restaurant). Blue fabric shopping leaves one far too exhausted to plan and prepare a meal for ones’s family.
