Just got off the phone with my mom. I got her recollections of the story of my first name. A bit different than my dad's, which is no surprise, especially since it's something that happened a lifetime ago (mine, specifically). I think that's the push I need to write the rest of that essay. Now I just need to find time to do it. Maybe tonight after the party. Of course, I won't know anyone at the party, and I'm not really good at mingling, so maybe I'll write at the party. I need to get those underwater writing things that divers use. Ooh, if I got something like that, I could sit in the bathtub and write. Hmmmm. Anyone know where to get something like that?
So, I did some dishes this morning and have started the Bavarian. Stuff I should have done last night but didn't feel like doing. And, because I was up so late last night, I decided not to go running this morning, so I'll have to make sure to try to go tomorrow.
I was talking about journal stuff with my mom, and she finally asked me what the name of the site was. Hmm, I wonder if I should let her know how to find me here. That would be really weird.
