Simple pleasures

Thursday: I received a paper clip shaped like a MINI Cooper in the mail. It’s now on my vanity wall next to the cat sticker and the Chinese uglydoll.

Friday: That hand-dipped caramel apple with crumbled Heath bar was divine. DIVINE.

Saturday: We had some seriously perfect fall weather. I’m so glad autumn has arrived; I’m daily reminded why it’s far and away my favorite season.

Sunday: Jane Eyre (the intense version) combined with belovéd roommates and pie and ice cream to create a much-needed respite after the relentless nerve-jangling chaos of Primary (so few children, so much… personality).


A) As of today, I get to be part of the Mormon delegation attending the Ig Nobel Prize Ceremonies this year.

B) Close encounters with road construction trucks by the dump entrance, lurking Staties who didn’t catch us, half-concealed parking spaces, getting lost in the woods, un-go-aroundable puddles the size of small ponds, coldcoldcold water, torrential rain, delightful friends, and nymph impersonation synergized into the best nightWaldening trip EVER. And to think I almost didn’t go.

Tuesday: A friend sent me this haiku.

Sylvia I write
An unknown name to obtain
Pause – I am Batman.

Can’t wait for Wednesday.
