Miscellany

I loved Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit. It's been a while since I laughed til it hurt. It's wonderful, although I wonder if adults will enjoy it more than kids. You must watch the credits - look for the bunny pairs that rub noses! Mrs. Minch and I went gaga every time we spotted them.

Robert is a very large rabbit. That thing looks bigger than my cats. In fact, it looks like the General rabbit out of Watership Down. Which is kind of frightening.

In the past few weeks, I have received postcards from Paris, India, Madrid and St. Moritz (Switzerland). Thank you to my friends who think enough of me to send a postcard.

I'm co-admin of a Flickr group. You're invited to participate. That said, perhaps I ought to contribute something myself.

I went to a high-octane beer tasting party in East Atlanta over the weekend. I like Chimay, a Belgian brew. There were twice-fried frites and grilled brats - never was a girl so happy. Thank you to our lovely hosts and to Mr. & Mrs. Minch who were wonderful company.

Went to the Dogwood Festival. My favorite part? The exhibition featuring dogs catching frisbees. Those border collies are sharp, even the ones who couldn't quite catch the discs (whom Mrs. Minch dubbed Butterfangs).

Last week my sister took me to see Cirque du Soleil. It was sweet, especially being in a company suite.

I have houseguests this coming weekend. Which means the frenzy of housecleaning has begun.

I had a brief annual review. I'm getting reference work under my belt, and a raise. Yay! Of course after taxes it won't be much, and it will be going straight to the DCCB (Damned Credit Card Balance). But more is good.
