This morning, as I was putting on my spring jacket to leave the hospital, I noticed that I had half of a stale Twix bar in the pocket, no doubt left over from early last fall. It was kind of squashed (perhaps I had sat on it at some point) and the caramel was stiff and chalky, a petrified ooze coming out from one broken end.

But I ate it anyway.

Why am I telling you these things?

Currently reading: "Animal Farm." Did you know that they made a live-action movie version of this book, with Babe-style moving-lips animal talking? Featuring the voices of Kelsey Grammer and Julia Louis-Dreyfus? For real. This seems...not good. Also, I am trying to find a good bubble recipe to replace the ludicrously overpriced but very hardy bubble solution sold by Gymboree. I believe it involves taking a standard soap solution and adding glycerin? And maybe corn syrup? Though in what proportions I'm still trying to determine.
