several things: first, ashley's birthday was sunday--happy belated birthday! i hope you had a wonderful day.
second, lindsay and jake are still in new zealand, still loving life. i just found out that in the middle of their wedding ceremony a giant blue heron flew along the river, fishing, and apparently everyone saw it except me and rich (we were focused on sophie). the river was only about 50 feet at best from where the dais was, so it must have looked spectacular. very nice.
third, my aunt stella died. she actually died seven months ago and i just found out yesterday. she wasn't my aunt by blood, rather she was one of my godmothers (i have three). her life was very sad--she had many, many demons--and it is best that she is at peace now. i would have liked to have seen her more recently than i have (almost 15 years) but i know she is in a better place. my mom is very sad about it, which makes me sad in return. bye aunt stella.
fourth, gus' hitting streak continues! he is kicking much ass in little league--either 4 or 5 RBIs last game! good for him.
fifth, if you haven't done so already, it's time to dump your nalgenes. i recommend sigg (until someone proves them dangerous as well).
