When you don't feel so hot, sometimes it is a mistake to eat Ethiopian food. I don't really want to elaborate. I am going to lie down now and contemplate the first statement.

My children are gearing up for my big birthday party. They've decided that my friend's house is too small and they need to find a hall to rent. I have visions of the party happening here with babies and children ransacking the house and chasing the cats under the furniture. I have nothing against babies and children. I just haven't child-proofed my house in a long time.

There is also food spillage and general mayhem. And public drunkenness. And random nudity.
Actually, the conversation with my daughter went like this (via iphone)

Maya: Hey mom. What about an Avatar theme? Everybody wears blue and braids. Tails.
Me: Hilarious.
Maya: Pointy ears.
Me: Big yellow eyes.
Maya: Could be fun.
Me: Totally.
Maya: Milo likes the idea. (grandson)
Me: Of course he does.
Maya: Half naked painted blue. We could make your friend's place look like the forest.
Me: Easy!!
Maya: We could fly on our banshees.
Me: Oh yeah and be 10 feet tall.
Maya: For sure.
Me: I wonder if the Nav'i have midwives?
Maya: They're probably all midwives.

That's my girl.

Your party sounds like it is going to be fun! I hope you have a nice birthday.

Everyone should make a big deal out of their birthday!

Thanks, you should come. We could have a spontaneous poetry reading and scare everyone away!
