So what was the over and under for Stations last night? I got there on time and made it to the 8th station before I started crying. After some momentary hysteria, I realized that if I count the ceiling tiles, I can pull myself back a little.

The plan was to go back on Atkins today....and I did, but that always makes me think that I need to have a last, great *bad* meal the night before. There were limited choices on a Friday in Lent. I was passing the Gas Tanks when I called Lobster Hut at 8:02 pm. "When do you close?", "8:30."..."Ok, can I place an order to be picked up?"...."No, you have to come in." Ok, even I don't drive that fast. Sadly, I ended up with a fish sandwich from Burger King. Jennifer said it was sad, but in that "you-are-pitiful-but-I-have-no-sympathy" voice. But seriously, shouldn't there be special consideration given to let people coming from Stations order on the phone?

I didn't take the Ambien. I took the magnesium. It's a powder, you dissolve it in boiling water and drink it..........blech! I had trouble falling asleep and woke up with a headache. But even someone as impatient as me knows we have to give it a few days.

I made it into work, but I am not working. I am surfing and blogging. I needed to show and answer the phones, so Nic could leave. My plan is to screw at 1700 on the dot.

I am not a Jefferson fan. I am an Adams girl. But this is on the money.

Greta at Kiss My Gumbo & WIST radio interviewed Brothers At War director Jake Rademacher. I have a Fandango alert telling me when it's coming to Boston. Go listen to the interview, you'll want to see it too.

My newest cousin - Griffin.

I actually prefer the McDonald's double fish sandwich over the BK one - FFs are better too.

What a good lookin kid! Both Griffin and his bear look as if they had a long day :)

We had three boys.
Tommy, 9 lbs even
Kevin, 10 lbs 3 oz
David, 11 lbs 2 oz

Because they kept getting a pound bigger each time the wife decided we had enough :)

h my gosh...Mary-Kate and I were talking a few weeks ago about if she had a boy someday, she should name him Griffin!

Welcome to the world, Griffin. When you're old enough, your cousin Maggie will be a treasure trove of laughter.

I saw Brothers at War last night. It was well worth the 5 hour drive.

Tom - Your wife is very wise.

Mrs. K - Griffin is your cousin too. His great-great grandmother was your great grandmother were sisters. Also, I don't think Griffin's mother would mind sharing the name one bit.

Sandi - Thanks for the kind words. Everyone is raving about the movie, I can't wait.
