Lately, Alysson and I have been talking on the phone and playing the sims every night until 3am (or until her phone dies). It's fun. We love it. It's our ritual. Also, next weekend we are hoping to have a LOTR educational workshop. Both her and Laura are totally down with the trilogy. ("All right, look, there's only one "Return," okay, and it ain't "of the King," it's "of the Jedi.") We'll rent the movies and watch the extended editions and Alysson will be in charge of factual information like family trees, chronologies, and species types, while Laura will educate me on the literary elements of Tolkiien's opus.
Now, I shall take my herbal sleep aid, pop in a podcast, and drift off into a hopeful sleep.
P.S. I heard that Russell Brand was cutting his hair short. WTF. Without his image he is nothing. His hair is the source of his mojo. I see bad things for him, should his head be shorn.
