weekend round-up, and/or a few quick updates

Without further ado...
  • Banana passed her swim test on Friday night and celebrated by going off the diving board for two and a half hours. We subsequently spent a significant chunk of the weekend at the pool. I also got a clinic—from our barber—on how to care for fine blonde hair at the pool.

  • The Forest Hill Farmers Market was just as busy and interesting as usual. I stepped back a bit on our purchases this week because we've built a surplus. There were no wildcards on my purchases, but a dairy had arrived this time. Banana was cranky, however, so I needed to scuttle the trip. My hope is that they return next week.

  • I've acceded to Banana's wish for a kitten for her birthday. G-d help us all.

  • Chilled pinot noir is surprisingly good.

  • John McCain will do everything he can to destroy Obama. It's going to be an interesting few months.

More later.
