Call Me Bucky Beaver Busy-Pants. No Wait. Don't.

OKAY I am 500 years behind on email and life and everything else, so if you e-mailed me in the last 2 weeks and are wondering if I died...I didn't. This is me, typing from NOT the beyond. I WILL catch up this weekend, it's only that I am just trying to get ready to leave the country and really, it's amazing the crap that needs to get done. This morning I hope to at some point clean at least one spoon and a bowl so I can have some breakfast, but if I do not, I guess it's fine because also on my list here for things to do by 2 PM this afternoon I see "lose five pounds and then go buy a cocktail dress." So.

My part of the auction to raise money for Marianne Mancusi went for like 500 bucks... THANK YOU NICE, BIDDER. That's like half a refrigerator! I am going to compose a song in your honor, tentatively titled, "Nice Bidder, You Are Awesome."

Me? I am intimidated.

Last night I said, to Scott, "This song about the nice bidder is not very good so far. Maybe it has too many notes? Maybe I should learn to play an instrument and also get a drop of musical talent? GAH, okay crit and book, but I can't think of anything I could do for this person that would be worth 500 bucks.
Scott: Well, I can. But if you did it, I would be mad.
Me: I'm sorry, was that a joke? Because I didn't get it. Could you say it again? Slower? In a really deep voice, kinda like Barry White?

Note to Mom: WAS that a joke? Because I REALLY did not get it. Pinky swear.

500 bucks! Wow! That's terrific! I think maybe you should think up a dance to go with that song...one involving tassels! Heh.

Seriously, that's really great. And you're worth it, Tulip! And to you, Nice Bidder, Thanks!

Wait, I'm sorry, you lost me after "beaver" and "pants" (and I hope THIS comment isn't edited by easily-embarrassed elves, again)....
