seminars for females

Wow, were those brownies ever good (the homemade brownies Peter brought over yesterday)...the best brownies I've ever had, to be honest. Cakey (and not too sweet), gooey chocolate on the top. I'm not a big fan of ultra-rich brownies, I confess, which is why I generally don't eat them (yes, in spite of my chocolate fanaticism). These brownies are different, though...I've had six of them since last night, eek!

Working all day at home today. To assuage my guilt about my brownie gorging, though, I'll probably make an extra visit to the health club this week.

My 3-year-old niece Sara called me today because she wanted to sing me a song she learned at nursery school from another little girl. It goes like this: "Come on Barbie, let's go party...UH UH OH OH...come on Barbie, let's go party...OH WHOA, OH WHOA"...

By the way, are there any other Sandman fans out there? Allison's got me hooked (I suppose you could call her my Sandman pusher).

Got the following from Jeff just now (he's at work, too, and yes we email each other quite a bit, is that sick or what? :-)). Think I need to have a talk with that guy...
