With His Olive Oil Voice...

Most important business of the day: Happy Birthday to the Bella, the Queen Bee, the woman who gave me my life and entertains me on a daily basis. I don't know if she actually reads this thing, but most of you who do know her in real life so please join me in celebrating her transition into a very youthful 56. Love you, Ma.

Yes, I'm going back to the dentist today. No, I don't want to talk about it. I'm working from home tomorrow so I'll probably write in here just for closure (assuming there's closure. Please let there be closure). As an aside, the phrase "a trip to the dentist" always makes me think of Veronica Mars. Damn I miss that show.

Other than that, things are chugging along. I heard "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" on the radio this morning, which is one of the best songs ever written so I'm sure that means something positive. I'm looking forward to celebrating belated Chanukah with Mike's family this weekend and snuggling our niece for the first time. And I will eat latkes even if I have to stick them in a blender.

And, because it really is around these parts:

I guess this skates the "roofie ballad" line, but that Dean Martin was so damn charming.


  1. A few things: 1) sorry to hear about the tooth woes. 2) "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" is one of the best songs ever. 3) I love Dean Martin Xmas music. Also Nat King Cole. All of that stuff is fired up on my itunes at work. 4) Latkes....yum!

  2. Whoa, the mouth stuff sounds horrible. Good luck with that. Pain does lessen the joy of every day life in a huge way. Best wishes, babycakes.

  3. At least you can add some applesauce into the blender with them...that just sounds delicious. Feel better!
