copying Esther's idea

#1. The Patriots blow my mind. They really do. I mean...it's to the point where it's a joy to watch them because they are SO IMPOSSIBLY GOOD. It's magic. What's his face from SNF said they are the best team he has EVER seen, and grew up on the '72 Dolphins. #2. The Crofter and the Laird, which I got for my birthday, forgot about, was reminded of, and read is absolutely beautiful. I don't know what I was expecting; some kind of patriotic, anti-England story, I suppose. I didn't realize a simple study of a simple agricultural life could be that engrossing. And was it ever! I hardly put it down after I started, and finished in under 24 hours. As soon as Mom's read it, I'm reading it again. #3. Dancing With the Stars is slightly scandalous most of the time, but I'm addicted to it. And I love the tango. I think it might be the most beautiful dance ever thought of, the waltz notwithstanding. At least when it's done correctly, proper music and attire included. #4. The SAT II American History book I'm studying is vexing me. If you say the 90's aren't important yet because they're too recent, don't spend a page and a half on Clinton. Please. Especially when you only give a little paragraph Ronald Reagan in which you falsely claim Reaganomics caused only a slight economic boom which ended in 1987. #5. It is St. Ignatius of Antioch's feast day and I still think Ignatius Athanasius would be a great boy's name.

Sarah said...

Not, I assume, after P's former boss? Nor, I hope, after the economist? Whence?

esther said...

it came out wrong
"george smith patton"

because full names are better than not ... and hey, while we're one this, what's on the table for MosesV?

With names like Ignatius Athanasius and George Smith Patton Fiona's choices of (now) Growin' for her brother and Broka for the next baby which is going to be a girl don't you know, don't seem all that odd.

I'm so glad you like the book! It's one of my favorites, and somehow I thought it'd be right up your alley. Anywho, I still think you have better names than Ignatius Athanasius in your list....haha...we should review our name lists again, it's been a good year I think since we did that.
