A to the Z

took the liberty of cruising around chandler - phoenix - scottsdale all day yesterday and here's what i accomplished:

- got an early taste of the 90 degree weather to come our way in about 3 months; but this arid heat is quite lovely
- sweet bargain rental of a baby Mazda 3 and avoided any major collisions
- the Ross'es here are so much more organized than the ones i used to fare in VA
- people are so quick to be conscious of the impact of garbage and access to water -- efficient recycling receptacles all over the place and free water every where you go
- drivers follow the speed limit
- everyone drives, no ones walks, for fear of getting ugly-tan.
- ate the best Vietnamese food ever! (and probably the cheapest!)
- FLW is the bomb

not since the third grade

okay, maybe i have had a nosebleed since the third grade, but this morning, the arrival of this nuisance was caused by my own nuisance...if you need a good laugh, call me this morning and ask me what caused this grossness.

in other news, i'm leaving for arizona in less than a week and i'm still catching up from last week's TO DOs, so unless my nose decides to clot up very soon, i'm way super behind.

all in all it was a good weekend that went by way too fast. accomplished a lot but always more to do:

+ saw the reflection of a closed-circuit broadcat of the pope 500 feet away from St. Pat's.
+ purchased a new toy, to share with the husband-roommate soon
+ babyshower / first communion / mini-fam-jam all in one day
+ laundry marathon
+ 'practiced' with geoff's new cousin Kellie [keep the "uyyyysss" to yourself, thanks.]
+ lost sleep over these growing $ concerns. man, it's expensive to grow up!

and for those of you whom i'm out of the loop with [thats great grammar!] i'll be in Arizona next Sunday, then straight to Philly that Thursday and somehow make it back to NYC.

ciao, ttfn. buh bye

it's time.

Popes, Filipinos & food

Pope B. did not attend any official dinners hosted by the White House, despite the fact that he celebrated the big 8-1 during his visit, since traditionally, popes do not consume meals in a public setting. However, i learned from this podcast this morning that our beloved PJP upon a visit in the Philippines awkwardly had to consume a banquet meal by the former first lady Imelda...I can just picture it now:
"Did you eat?"

P.S. - So how do pope's celebrate their birthday? And which hat do they get to wear on the special day? :)
