Since I am a huge slagass, however, there is neither rhyme nor reason to my list, nor a tidy symmetry of best and worst, nor even a semblance of order to the number of items. (I am also baffled by Blogger's concepts of "page design" and "image placement," so forgive me if this post looks all monkey on your screen.)

Overpriced swag from Mary Poppins on Broadway (dude, the Munchkin will totally flip)
Lots of bloggers were out and about, including Fuse, Chicken Spaghetti, Jen Robinson, and Liz B. I also got a goodly amount of reading done (thank you, time alone with no dependents!), so new haiku will come soon.
But -- poop on a stick! -- the labor movement has decided that I will not get to see The Little Mermaid on Broadway (or, as she is known in my house, "Ariel the Little Mermaid," with nary a pronoun to be found). At least Mary Poppins is still on the docket.
Prayers, karma, and other good feelings for two uneventful ferry rides with the little monsters would be appreciated. (At least the beagle is staying home this time.)
but the thing is, it's also
a damn good story.
