For the Rest of Us

(A donation was made in my name!)

You should all be so lucky to have such clever friends as I. Marc and V threw a Festivus party. There was a Festivus pole, there was the airing of grievances. There was talk of the feats of strength, and a donation was made in each of our names to The Human Fund. (Money for People.). We were also all able to go on strike and proclaim "Festivus, Yes! Bagels, No!"

In between we ate good food, watched the Seinfeld episode, tried to figure out how to say "Swedish" in Spanish, debated the calculation for the youngest age someone can date (half your age plus seven; duh), posed for pictures with the strike sign, brainstormed paint colors for V, wished someone happy retirement, and wished someone well in their new job.

And in a miraculous turn of events I returned home to find my phone, which I'd left out in the rain (the one day it rains in San Diego!), able to boot up. It's a Festivus Miracle!

I smiled all the way through this post -- and thought you might want to read this article I saw today:

May we all have a Festivus Miracle!

I'm waiting for someone to invite me to a Kwanzaa party. I think that would be so cool.
