Oh what a day!

Yes, once again I turn a year older, and a tasty turning-older it was. Dan made me a great lunch of garlic sausage, fresh pasta (OK, it was made yesterday) and fresh broccoli. Admittedly, I had to add the broccoli myself, but it was there. Then there were chocolate ricotta cookies and a marscapone eclair from Isgro. Divine.

Many important things happened on October 6, I might point out. Here are a few:
  • Frodo Baggins and company were attacked on Weathertop by the Witch-King and his Nazgul lackeys.
  • Robert Bork lost his chance at the Supreme Court.
  • Mark Petrie, Ben Mears, Jimmy Cody and Father Callahan invaded the Marsten House and killed the vampiric Susan Norton.
  • "The Jazz Singer" opened, heralding the day of talking pictures.
  • Elizabeth Taylor married for the eighth time. (Walder Frey had nothing on her.)
I'm assuming you can guess which of these are fictional.

Dan's sister's wedding was this weekend, and naturally I forgot to bring the camera. But! My mom had hers, so there will be pics in due course.
