I Heart DaddyHow effing cute is my niece going to look in this? Ten more weeks 'til Baby A.
Finally saw Juno last night (thanks, Netflix), and I'm getting ready to settle in with Lars and the Real Girl as soon as I post this. Finished reading Running With Scissors last night, digging into Girls Like Us next, and then on to the 800-page Halberstam book I mentioned in my last entry. Girls Like Us is a bio of Carly Simon, Joni Mitchell and Carole King.
I think I'm burying myself in books and movies because real life is so horrifying. Between the hideous teen beating in Florida (not to mention news that the dreaded Dr. Phil posted bail for one of the accused assailants) and the polygamist Mormons in Texas, not to mention the ongoing nightmare in Iraq, it's small wonder that we're a society of escapists. And while we're at it, it's okay with me if Texas and Florida go ahead and secede from the Union. Yeah, I said it.
