Okay, Rebecca has once again guilted me into posting. But only a little.
April in cliff notes:
- Richard and I, along with our houseguest and assorted other pals, enjoyed two fabulous days of singing in McMahan (which you'd better pronounce "MACK-man" if you want the old man at the gas station to understand you when you ask for directions) out in the country. What a GOOD convention.
- R and I managed to finagle ourselves wedding invitations! No actual finagling was required, but we somehow get to attend my co-worker's wedding in ten days. We're so proud of ourselves.
- We got to entertain our first and second out-of-town visitors in April... first my mother came and spoiled us silly by buying us tasty dinners and giving us excuses to take off from work and have a great time traipsing around San Antonio... and then we got Jenna! The house feels a little empty these days. Maybe we should get a dog. Or carry on the tradition of the previous tenant by buying ourselves a 150-pound potbellied pig to brighten our long, lonely days.
- I was a big winner at my first silent auction! We went to the Lilith Fund's Reproductive Equity Awards (guess whose place of employment was responsible for those invitations...) and I got me 2 months of karate lessons for $75! If Jackie Chan were a white girl who learned martial arts by making a charitable donation to an abortion fund for low-income women, I would so be the next him.
Other points of interest: Texas is hot; I'm now on the Steering Committee of my anti-Bush organization so I get to boss around everyone else in the group; we finally got Texas license plates which we're a little too excited about (unnaturally high levels of pride regarding such things as state license plates just SMACKS of Texan-ness... and Richard is going COWBOY BOOT SHOPPING with Bill sometime soon... god help us); we got our Kerrville Folk Festival tickets; and I should be asleep right now. Okay, I'm leaving.
