Hello YouYou, Hildy Hildy, here, but I guess you knew that. What a whirlwind! Bob, my boyfriend, is manning the phone, as I write this...seems...there is a great deal of interest in the Obama Haiku...intense. Must run out and get a new tube of lipstick for the for festivities. And if you have any advice on what to wear...ahhhh....let me know! OX, Hildy
I’ve been thinking about my favorite books, and The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath has always been at the top, of course. But, I’ve been thinking lately, for a long time...lately...
Sylvia, you didn't have to bake your head. You could have just baked some cookies. Wouldn't we all like to BAKE OUR HEADS. Pre-heat the oven to 375 and call it a day. But we don't. No, we get out the mixing bowl and the flour and the chocolate chips and the eggs and the whisk and we hope for the best. So, Sylvia, I'm looking for a few new friends. Ones who have the courage to muscle through the despair. People with spatulas and cookie trays, even if their utensils are just metaphorical. Because, we both know, cookies are fattening and have a lot of sugar. Well, I just had to tell you that Sylvia. I'm sorry. Are you?
