I have so much to post about, some of it househunting-related. But I don’t have time, so I’m just going to mention the wonderful birthday gift I had waiting for me when I got home. It was a box, from my parents (Ruth and Don). I opened it up and pulled out the packing paper. On top was a light-blue towel with a dolphin-print band. On top of that was a little elegant-looking square of paper that said
Happy BirthdayI thought that was very nifty! I pulled out the towel, and out fell a copy off The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy on DVD. My parents rock! I’m lucky in so many ways.
always carry a towel

(By the way, mother, I’m not sure your card will get there in time and I know your present won’t, but I haven’t forgotten your birthday is coming up, although I’ve forgotten almost everything else lately.)
