The Red Hot Chili Peppers tickets came in the mail. I profess not to worry about stuff, but I admit I was worried they wouldn't, that there had been a mistake or maybe someone stole them from my mailbox (!!!) but they came. We will have to carry oxygen for high altitudes, our seats are so far up in the stadium, but we'll be about eye level with the jumbo-tron, and the people-watching will be fabulous. I think I have worn out the new Peppers cd Stadium Arcadium, listening to it over and over. It is very good. I'm also listening to their music from the 80s and 90s and enjoying the progression. The concert's on September 14, so there's some more time to anticipate the fun.
Alex left his cell phone in his jeans pocket when he did his laundry (hey, that's delicious all by itself, my kids do their own laundry). Anyway, the phone went through a whole wash, rinse and spin cycle. Andy advised him to leave it to dry out for a week. Alex tried it last night. Guess what? It works!
I went to an Italian wedding shower on Sunday. My friend Kathy's son Robert is getting married this summer. Lucy, his fiancee, is Italian. I was maid of honour in an Italian wedding once, so I was prepared. The shower was at an Italian restaurant with 50 women. Everything was beautiful. I knew about the food part, so I ate only 1/2 of everything that was served to me, and made it through the meal while others who were uninitiated to Italian banquet eating dropped like stuffed flies around me. The food was delicious, but even more delicious? At our table there were six Marias! Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria and Maria...ahhhhh!
I saw the Da Vinci Code on Sunday evening with Alex and I actually liked it. It's been pretty much panned by the critics, but I decided to give it a try, and Alex was dying to see it so he could talk to his friends about it at school on Monday. If you watch it as a study of character and intention it's actually pretty good. What makes each person go? Oh! It was very good in that sense, or as good as a movie can be. As a thriller/mystery or compelling statement of a controversial theory, I'm not so sure, but I'm not much of a judge of such things. About people's stories I know, and it was good in that way. I also admire how Tom Hanks is okay with not looking beautiful. Good man.
Andy and I saw Fiona in The Wizard of Oz on Saturday. It was her "off cast" meaning she was playing a chorus part. The show is "double-cast" meaning each actor learns two parts, a main role and a chorus part. We'll see her playing the Cowardly Lion this coming Saturday. She is a star. We are so proud of her.
That's my delicious life so far.
question: what's good for you today?
