1. This picture of me that my six-year-old drew for his class at school. The assignment was to make a little book that had a picture of each member of his family and a description of why they were special. This kills me. Look at me. Look at my grim expression, my frantic posture, my wild eyes and hair. Oh my goodness. I’m laughing again.
2. The fact that Johnny Weir referred to Yevgeny Pleshenko’s costume as “the red vest situation.”
3. This e-mail that my college-age brother sent to my sister detailing his daily life. Maybe it’s only funny if you know my brother, who is 6’5″ of dry sarcastic understated wit:
“Not much is new with me. Three days ago one of the light bulbs in my living room went out. Then the next day the other one went out! Today I bought some new ones and replaced the burned out ones. You can read about all that on my twitter page, blog, and facebook though.”
And two quick links. The first is to a story published this past Sunday in the Deseret News. The reporter, Jessica Harrison, did a lovely job. I am so pleased. And the second is to an interview with author/blogger Samantha Stewart, who asked some very fun questions.
And, one last thing. I responded to the comments on the last post (which I usually do as I’m getting ready to put up a new post).
