Parathas and palak paneer, oh my!

Indian food + winning Trivial Pursuit + reclining with Henry James novel + a tall glass of tap water that doesn't taste like shit = happiness.

Sister answered the phone from a non-local number none of us recognized this afternoon. The person on the other end said, "Hello, this is So-and-so from God-knows-where. May I speak to the male head of the household?" She replied, "Sure!" and then hung up.

There's something terribly beautiful in being in a house of all women.

Ha! When people call and ask for Mr. Estella at our house I usually go for the really uncomfortable moment and respond with, "Nah, he left in 1980."
