|"You fathers will understand. You have a little girl.
You're her oracle. You're her hero."
Not much else to talk about at the moment. Memorial Day weekend was unusually cool, so I didn't go down to Coney Island like I usually do. I went to John & Sue's place to watch the movie for my Beach Party Blogathon post, which is coming up next week. I also got a last-minute invite from my new friend Sandi to an outdoor performance of The Taming of the Shrew by a local theater troupe. It was in a public park, and unfortunately, there were lots of brats running around the perimeter of the plaza who didn't understand (or care) that there was a play going on. The parents, of course, did nothing. What I saw of the play looked good though.
A lot going on here this month, so stick around. Your links:
