My stepbrother (Bill - my stepmom's son) graduated from Bennington College this past weekend. He got his Master's degree (bad sister, I don't remember what specfiically it's in).
According to my stepmom:
Bill's lecture and reading was very well received. I guess that is actally that is an understatement. Comments on his lecture were "one of the best graduate lectures ever" and that came from the Director of the Program! His reading was also a tremendous hit. Advisors used words like "brilliant" in talking about him.
Congrats, Bill! I knew you could do it!
Oh, :A:, I think you need to come over next weekend!
4th Annual July 4th Tractor Parade
"Decorate your tractor, your old car, your ATV, your bike, your horse or even yourself. Walk, run or ride... Just come and join the fun!!"
"Eat a live toad the first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day."
In other news, Katya got upset with something Grishka was doing last night and started to howl (in our bedroom) around 3am. I got up and put Grishka into the cat room. While I was up, Peri heard me and started barking. So I found my shoes and a coat and took him outside to pee. It seemed like it took forever, but I finally dozed back off.
Then around 5am, Katya wanted to chat and Peri thought he needed some attention. So here I sit, bleary-eyed, wishing I could go back to bed.
At least it's Friday. Maybe I should eat a live toad so my day doesn't get any worse than it already is. :p
Claudia IMd me today to ask if I'd like to see Tori Amos in August at Red Rocks. I said yes. Gina's going to go too!
We're also going to see Norah Jones there in August. Claudia said I could be her date.
Now I have to get my butt in shape because it's hike up to the open-air Amphitheatre. But it's worth it.
Some pictures taken at Red Rocks.
I had to do it. I had to clean out my blog reads. If you got cut, please don't take it personally. There just aren't enough hours in the day for me to read everyone on my list and being the type A gal I am, it was driving me nuts.
I'll also be clicking on links of people who leave comments (but this isn't a cry for people to leave me comments).
If you'd rather I didn't use your name (or alias) as the link name, please let me know.
