Okay – so we saw UP. I’m thinking it may be a five-star film. I need to see it again to be certain, though.

Hooray for the last day of school! Everyone was up early, dressed and with hairs bee-utiful before 6.30. It’s like the first day of school, but better – because nobody has to go back tomorrow. Or next week.
I woke up this morning with the Depeche Mode song “Somebody” in my head. I have not heard that song since maybe the last high school dance – but maybe, maybe some DJ played it at a dance in college (not that I hit the dance scene too much then).
I’m not really a chocolate person. I mean, I’ll eat it, and once in a great while I’ll crave it (but usually in connection with butter toffee). But for some reason, I had a few of those Andes mints in my purse. I think they were from the Olive Garden, which would mean they’ve been in my purse for many months (like maybe since November – ick). Because, you know, I don’t eat them.
So once upon a time in high school and college, I had this best friend. He was a guy. He was sweet and talented and clever and smart (almost as smart as he thought he was). We were best friends for a couple of years, and then I got married and sort of got myself a new best friend, know what I mean?
Kid 2 came with me on the 4.5 miler yesterday morning, just after my moaning post. She gave me ideas. Or talking to her and listening to her I thought of a couple, anyway.
Yeah! A thousand words before kids are up. I should do more, I know, but I have this tiny problem. At half-way through my first draft, I still don’t know exactly what my main character wants. Oops. It seems clear that she wants to be accepted, but that’s already fine. Because even though the people she wants to break in with are mean to her, yadda, yadda, she has a nice group of friends.
I know how you were all concerned. I won’t leave you wondering. The Muse returned this morning. Turns out she really likes to have me to herself – first thing in the morning, when all the house is quiet.
