Where we've been convinced to write a new post on Dec. 2. Stay tuned!


Blog Sorbet

Posted by Gwen |

Sorbet is served between courses of a meal to clean the palette and prepare it for the next dish and its flavors.  I think we need a super-sized serving of blog sorbet after all this birthday business.  Is everyone okay with lemon?

Seriously, I am pooped.  It's exhausting being the center of attention for two weeks.  I'm not complaining, but I need a break.  Sadly, there is no rest for the wicked and this weekend is BOOKED starting with attending tonight's performance of The Merry Wives of Windsor in Forest Park, followed by a Ladies Night going-away party for a friend Friday, a gathering on Saturday afternoon to eat pork butt and watch the Belmont, and ending with a home-cooked fried chicken dinner at my parent's on Sunday for . . . dare I say it . . . my birthday.  Thankfully everything but Sunday dinner is about other people so I can disappear into the crowd as the elderly are supposed to do.

Anyway, this post was supposed to be the sorbet that transitions us from the never-ending birthday course we just had to whatever comes next so here you go . . . this is a video for a song that I can't get out of my pea brain.  Enjoy.  And we shall never speak of this birthday again.

You are my soulmate.

Just YESTERDAY...I told someone that I had a book that I referred to as my "book sorbet." It's a book I read time and time again to "cleanse my palate" after reading other books.

I just shed a tear at how much I truly adore you...for thinking like me. hee hee.

It just occured to me that I haven't wished you a happy birthday, so you'll have to put up with one more:

Happy Birthday!

Oh yeah, I dig your new photo.

Elderly- pfft- whatever.

All I can think of is that bit in Monster's Inc when the Abominable Snowman gives them cups of yellow snow and says "Don't worry, it's lemon."
