Journalist guy: "When I met you, I instantly disliked you. You're bossy, insulting and the fact that twice you called me 'Re-run' makes me think you're a little racist."
And music to my ears, from April: "I smell a duet coming on! 'Fire!' Springsteen! Hit it!"

and here's your quote of the week, from Jack: "The grown up dating world is like your haircut. Sometimes awkward triangles occur."
Jesse: "I picked the Stephen Sondheim biography section for our clandestine meeting place because only he would be able to express my melancholia. I'm sorry for what happened at your house the other night. Do you still have my Care Bear?"

All of this aside, I'm grateful to have a job. We just got the results of our RFP, so we'll see if that's true come June 30 (the end of the fiscal year).

Mr. Schu: "Let's bury the hatchet."
Sue Sylvester: "I won't be burying any hatchets, William, unless I happen to get a clear shot to your groin."
And how can I ignore this one from Sue: "Ladies, you may be two of the stupidest teens I've ever encountered, and that's saying something. I once taught a cheerleading seminar to a young Sarah Palin."

Experience #1 -- the subway. They were a little confused about the fact that I don't have a car.
Experience #2 -- Museum of Natural History
Here's my niece's reaction to seeing the dinosaurs.
Experience #3 -- The Cloisters and Fort Tryon Park.
Here's my niece, who suddenly became shy half-way through the day. I got this picture by telling her there was a bird outside the window.

Valerie came up with the great idea to go to Color Me Mine. Here Jill is on crutches, but still looking cute.
Everyone painted a dish for the bride, using beachy colors and themes.
We had a delicious cake baked by my friend, Marci. I could seriously drink that raspberry filling.
The two hours went by really fast and somehow, even though we had tons of food, some of us were still hungry. We crashed the pizza place next door, ordered a pie and opened presents. The only downside was that some people had to leave at this point and didn't get to see the presents.
Here's Jill with her salt cellar. Everyone knows that Jill is crazy for kitchen stuff and likes things that a lot of people haven't even heard of.Not exactly a conventional shower, but I think a good time was had by all. I love this picture!

We went to the Tulip Festival, with better results than last year. They were beautiful!

Since I was going to the show with Esther, who has accompanied me to seven concerts previously, and Paul, who has only been to one show before, we had lots to talk about. Esther made the comment that she thinks he is trying to tone down the crazy facial expressions because of his growing fame. But just as if he had heard her and wanted to prove her wrong, he treated us to a few, like this one here.
JM said he was in a really good mood, and it showed because he really put on a great show. I left feeling so happy that I decided to fly out. Paul enjoyed it so much that he talked about going again this summer, if JM did a summer tour. Although this sent Esther over the edge, considering she'll have a tiny baby this summer and won't be able to go and therefore neither can he, I got excited thinking about the possibility. And when I checked johnmayer.com this morning, I found that he has announced some summer tour dates and there are plenty for me to look forward to! Including a show in southern California on my birthday that I will be dragging Anne Lise to for her first JM live experience. No dates in the Seattle area, so I guess Paul is off the hook.
