No. 13

1. Young One: Say that word you just said again!
Father: Sonic Boom.

2. Saw "Up" with the very best "Up" companion there ever was. We were affected so deeply we had to spend a sacred hour in Post-Film Pie Talk. We agreed that honest art is due for a comeback, that "I can't contain myself" is a brilliant description for certain heart-swelling experiences, and that life is worth living as long as you still have the ability to listen to "Rhapsody in Blue" (I added to that, "I Want You Back" by the Jackson 5).

3. Met the most fine-mannered Irish Setter named Finn today.


  1. mari,
    thanks for coming out of the virtual woodwork, so to speak, and offering words of encouragement- they mean a great deal to me. i may re-start my blog in a while, but i felt like i needed to step away for a while and start fresh.

    and i loved Up too! it was such a delightful dream of a movie.

    thanks again, and keep your words coming as well,

  2. Hi Mari! Just saw Up with Pollo and my new roomie 3D no less! We had crazy 3D glasses and looked ridiculous and we were laughing and crying at the same time.
