12-year-old birthday party, Take 1: Girls!


12-year-old birthday party, Take 1: Girls!

Whose idea was this, anyway?

There are 5 extra girls here camped out in the living room, which looks like a tornado went through it. So far: Water balloon fights, bike rides, make-your-own pizzas, girls being bossy, vegan teal velvet cupcakes {instead of red, and thanks to older sister}, movies, popcorn, dogs eating popcorn, and silly phone videos.

Tomorrow, Take 2: Boys!

What do these things have in common? Hidden Reality and Nickel and Dimed

The Hidden Reality

A book that a friend told me about today that’s now on my reading list:

The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos
by Brian Greene

A book that I recommend:

Nickel and Dimed, On (Not) Getting By in America (10th Anniversary Edition)
By Barbara Ehrenreich

Here’s what Barbara has to say about the update. I talked about Barbara’s “Bright Sided” earlier this year.

What do these two books have in common? Absolutely nothing that I know of, but me.
