It's been a strange day. We went swimming today since the pool will likely be closed on Friday, so all day it's seemed like Friday. My friend brought over a tape of "Pororo" - a Korean cartoon about a penguin and his friends. Very cute! They've been calling Mollusc "Pororo" because - ah I have to wait until Saturday to share that. :-)
So we go to Les Mis on Sunday and a good thing, too. I guess that's the last day it's running and it's not coming back to Detroit. Ironically, the niece of one of the TKD dads is in the show. Will I enjoy it more if I read up on it? The music is great. :-) Now I have to figure out whether I have something appropriate to wear. John and I date in the bedroom and bathroom and then it's clothing optional, so. . .
I'm looking forward to our trip. Mostly because it will be good to see family and hit our favourite used book stores. You'd think a city this size would have some decent used book stores. But, apparently, you'd be wrong. Last time we were there, I scored some excellent Greek Mythology Manga (best I can do link-wise unless you want the publisher's site (in Korean)) books for the kids, among many other things. I have some books and laserdiscs to trade in, too. Quite a few, in fact. And there's a good music store where we're headed as well. Mollusc needs the next piano book. Better start a list. Most of all (not counting family), however, I'm looking forward to Lao Laan Xang. Ack, I was going to try to get to Barnes and Noble today to cash in my $35 gift card (free from MyPoints!) on the LOTR CDset. That's probably not in the cards for today.
I feel fuzzy and dull today. It's good not to have to go anywhere!
