These are the things Pookie misses by having to work late on Monday nights: unpacking my jellyroll of Whimsy, and enjoying an iceberg lettuce salad on the couch in front of the Olympic curling. (Of course, we’ll sit in silence later tonight while the ice dancing is being tivoed, so it’s not all skittles and beer.) –Schn.

I must be getting out of my photography rut since I took 46 pictures while milling around just before dinner. — Pookie

So after seeing elizabeth’s pictures of Bent Spoon cupcakes earlier this week, we were all in agreement that Maple Hoo needed to be cupcaked up, stat. Boomer made a run into Princeton, but was distracted at the store by the apparently solid-gold quince branches she saw at the store next door, and didn’t realize they had given her mini cupcakes instead of real ones. What kind of cupcake purveyor hears "cupcake" and assumes that means "mini"? Since when are mini cupcakes the baseline? Anyway, Boomer was distraught when she realized the error, but by then we were all home, it was evening, and it was too late to fix it. But that’s okay, because despite their diminutive stature, the cupcakes were delish.

What’s better than an unexpected nap due to an early closing at work? Nothing! That’s what!

After taking our seating assignments from Clark, we were all merely pawns at Godfather Tabitha’s dinner table.

Schnookie challenged me to a “get up off the couch” challenge to see what we could get at dusk in the yard after a big day of sitting and watching the men’s cross country ski marathon. What a race! — Pookie
