The Farmer’s Almanac was right, it has been a polar coaster winter. A regular spiel of winter days is followed by a day so warm you can smell the earth. The snow melts into puddles of water that promptly freeze over the next day.
We finally watched “40 year old Virgin”, which, despite the name and concept, was actually rather well done and hilarious to boot. I love it when a movie makes Steve laugh that hard. When the “virgin” unexpectedly breaks into “The Age of Aquarius” at the end, that was just the best. Practically gave me chills.
Now Steve and I have the “You know how I know you’re gay?” conversation whenever we’re in the living room having what we call “laptop time”. (Laptop time as in COMPUTER laptop time- where we simultaneously boot up our laptops and sit across from each other. Like toddler parallel play, except it’s geek parallel play.)
I was asked to join a USTA tennis team. This would mean weekly practices, tennis clinic every couple weeks, and during the season (April-July) matches all over northern Vermont. I think I’m going to go for it- I’m psyched that the option exists to join a team without having to be in high school or college.
The name of the team? “Happy Swingers.”
