p.s. The spider I rescued out of the bathtub the other day made an appearance in Leila's room. We (meaning my husband) fixed all the screens so it can't get out. It could be anywhere... Maybe, after I go to bed, it will blog...

Clouds Lifted, Angels Sang
I had a cheeseburger tonight. I was so damn hungry, I couldn't take it anymore. I needed meat, I needed bun, I needed lettuce and tomato, and I got it, and it was like a dream come true. I did not get french fries or a soda, so I think I was still inside the 1500 calorie/day limit. God, I love food. Not all food equally, but I love food. I read Leila a chapter of Ramona Quimby, Age 8 tonight, and Ramona is served tongue for dinner and likes it until she finds out its tongue. I have eaten tongue, and, like Ramona, didn't know it was tongue, and I liked it! It tasted like a really tender piece of beef. I never ate it again, and you'd have to pay me a lot of money to buy it, prepare it and eat it, but it was good. I think the presentation at the meat counter is part of the problem; if they sliced it up into little medallions, and it didn't look like what it is, I think people would eat it more often. Although, for all I know, everyone except me eats tongue once a week.
