I'm sitting at the kitchen counter, eating a piece of the apple pie that Emma made this afternoon. I know I talk/Tweet/Facebook about pie a lot. I just really, really love pie.
Anyway, wanted to say that Emma's pie rocks the casbah. Which is a song by The Clash, and if you spell it with a "k" it's an Arabic word for a fortress. Usually without windows. Fascinating. I love how readily available information is.
When I worked at the library in junior high school, I loved looking at encyclopedias (also love to spell it--geek, I know!). And the other day I watched an old movie called Ball of Fire with Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck about a group of professors writing an encyclopedia who meet a night club singer who teaches them about slang. Fun and worth a watch.
Anyway, if actual encyclopedias were a 10, the internet is about a million zillion. There are just so many fascinating things to know.
I also learned today about emoji--Japanese emoticons that you can put on your phone to send picture texts. (I grabbed Awesome Emoji from the App store--free!)
So I sent Toben a text filled with little pictures of things like chickens and eggplants and bathtubs and French fries. All things I love. He didn't get it and told me to stop texting him. So I sent him some animal pictures and a kiss-y face. He told yelled at me to stop again. So I sent him an angry face.
He came downstairs to tell me to knock it off. Not sure if it was the emoji or the fact that I was texting him from the kitchen.
(Yes, that is a picture of our garage floor I sent to him. Pretty risque, huh?!)
I sat down to write something meaningful and profound. It's been a disappointing day--despite apple pie and little Japanese pictures for my text messages. Sometimes writing about it helps put it all in perspective.
But I don't think meaningful is going to happen tonight--not unless this gets really, really long. So instead I think I'll go turn on my electric blanket and grab a book. And maybe another piece of pie. Perhaps profundity (good word, huh?) will come in the morning.
