Pieces of Random

I ran to the mall this morning to get a screen protector for my iPad and somehow ended up in the dressing room at Macy's in the most adorable purple lace mini dress that, thankfully, was a size too big. Why do I love dresses so much? Why can I never have enough? Why are there so many that are so adorable? Why can I always find dresses that would be perfect for occasions that I don't have an invitations to?

On the topic of the iPad: if anyone has any recommendations for The Perfect iPad Case Ever Created, I would like to hear 'em.

Well, I guess there's no avoiding it. At 10:12 am tomorrow, I will be 30.  

I'm working during the day. Technically, birthdays are a paid holiday here at the 'brary, but I'm taking off Friday in lieu of my birthday so that I can have a gloriously long weekend. Lucy and I are leaving Baby A at home and heading down to the D for a fancy dinner. I've already stalked the menu at the restaurant: I'm having the scallops.

Check out the text message Emma sent me yesterday.

So apparently my cousin is one of them. One of the people who I want to strangle on a regular basis. Is it my fault that you did not address this issue until the last possible second? It is not. And child, do you know how often I hear this?

Hilarious with a side of annoying.

Yesterday was another marathon of activity: two soccer games and a hockey game in a stretch of 11 hours. Loved the madness last weekend. Loved it again this weekend.

After one of my soccer games, the referee came up to me and said "Good job back there. I haven't seen anyone in this league who is able to contain their forwards." I was playing sweeper - the very last defender - and worked my ass off. The referee made more than a few bad calls that made me seriously question his knowledge of soccer, but I basked in the glow of his compliment nonetheless.

I really love soccer. And I especially love doing it well.

I convinced myself that the book club that I facilitate did not meet until next week. It meets on Thursday. I have a lot of book to read in a very little period of time. I feel smart.
