Easter Sunday

This morning, I got up early to go to church, then hit snooze. Thus, I ended up at the 10am Easter Mass... at 10am. As anyone who has ever gone to church on Easter Sunday knows, the church is always packed. Unfortunately for me, I'm dizziness/fainting prone, and such packed churches are, well hot. Last time this happened was in Singapore where I had an excuse - I was standing in 90' humidity - today was fairly cool and a little rainy, but the inside of the church was quite warm.

I am now at home, after two near misses hitting the floor. Such is life. I should have gone to the 8am, no one likes waking up at 7am to go to church.

Queen Noor and Stephen Colbert

I have to admit, when I first heard the President say we were going to get rid of nuclear weapons, I thought he was being *very* hopeful, rather than the average level of hope he typically projects.

However, I'm actually pleasantly surprised at the growing chorus of people trying to get rid of nuclear weapons. Queen Noor was on the Colbert Report the other day to promote her organization whose goal it is to eliminate nuclear weapons in a phased timeline.

I have to say, though, that the best part of the piece was that Stephan Colbert appeared to have been knighted by Narsil. :D Now, THAT I can believe in.

I am wearing my favorite bright yellow swirly skirt today. It looks like a giant burst of sunshine, so I wear it when I am feeling in need of bright yellow sunshine feelings. :)

I think that this picture of L. is quite possibly the cutest, cheeriest picture ever.

Today, I finally find out how I did for the past year, as Amazon's three month long review process comes to an end. I don't know how cheery I will be after that.
