ut practice

Did absolutely no musicstuff last night at UT practice, :-) Went out for sushi, rehashed FKO. Back at Allison's place, we threw party streamers at each other's heads (Allison had bought a bunch)...Allison was astounded that Jodi and I had never seen these things before. For my birthday, Jodi bought me a pair of very cool dangly earrings. Allison got me a very pretty mini-vase with maple leaf etchings and an Easter bunny with chocolates. Allison says she's nearly finished the FKO report, and is going to pass it to Jodi and me for adding comments.

Check out Andrea's Zen Cappucino Corner for FKO comments and details about Allison's Corruptive Chip Influence.

My nieces Sara (4) and Annie (2) came to visit for lunch yesterday. Annie loved my Quickcam; I'll post some of the pictures she took when I've had a chance to resize them. Sara immediately asked if she could play with my rubber stamps (I collect rubber stamps of all shapes and sizes). Annie still worships Sara and wants to do everything Sara does, be everywhere Sara is. Ruth recently reported the following conversation:

    SARA: I'm going upstairs.
    ANNIE: Me too!
    SARA (getting a bit frustrated): Annie, I think I'd like to go upstairs by myself. I need to be alone.
    ANNIE (tearfully, still following): Alone too!

Going to see Matrix today!
