Oh well, I may have lost out on Katie Couric short term, but it looks as if I'll be penning something for the Washington Post's outlook section this weekend, and Foreign Policy wants a story, too... *head is spinning*

Chatter, is your head spinning or dancing for joy?

Went to Carnegie Hall for Frederica von Stade's farewell recital. I don't do the fan thing at all, but became a fan of hers at the age of 11 when I saw her perform Cherubino in the Marriage of Figaro at Glyndebourne. Opera/music/serious singing could be fun! An amazing voice, a witty performer and charm and acting skill to boot. Now, 37 years, that's all. So both the best & the saddest thing! Still, found a seat in Row B, so it felt like attending a concert in my own living room. Just a wonderful performance. Ho hum...

Forgot to post yesterday. In addition to Earth Day yesterday was also the 25th anniversary of my brother's brain surgery. Still cancer-free. He's a living record.

That is AMAZING, LH!!! How lucky and how wonderful for you all... I lost a friend to a form of brain cancer back in the mid-80s after two rounds of surgery. It's a nasty beast, all too often.

Collecting my daughter after her school trip to Germany! I've missed her so much, it's great to have her home. She had a whale of a time, though, and came home with loads of chocolate from the chocolate factory. She enjoyed her wine tasting experience at the vineyard trip, but the highlight was Phantasialand - apparently there's nothing like hanging upside down whilst going at high speed!! :D

I got to meet Laurie R King this evening! She was doing a signing half an hour away, and we drove up to see her. I got to hear her talk and get a book signed--awesome! I've been reading her books since I was in college, so seeing her in person was such a thrill.

exactly two weeks from now I'll be racing my first quad race with an affiliated group...yep I'm excited. I madly love my four wheeler and now I found a atv racing group that accepts females! so got all my gear ready and my quad all clean and shine.


By the way I finished my third week at my new job and though overwhelming since it's new to me I like it alot. My boss races dirtbikes so it's weird sometimes we get side tracked talking bikes and tracks and the best places to ride.
