i spent an awful lot of time yesterday watching their plane move across the world, coming strangely close to the north pole as it made its way to hong kong, where they had a layover before continuing to bangkok. this route makes more sense when you look at it on a rounded image of the earth, by the way. according to my calculations, they landed in bangkok about five minutes ago, which is actually twelve hours in the future. the whole thing is a little bit mind-blowing.
as for me, i reacted to her departure by furiously organizing odd parts of my house, including a coat closet we hardly ever use and the shelf where we keep tea. oh, and also the tupperware/lid situation is now copacetic.
also, i watched the entire first season of toddlers and tiaras.
thank goodness for the dancer, who fetched me in her car, bought me a chocolate chip cookie, and fed me some delicious lentil and portabella mushroom soup. we also went for a walk in the bright, cold sunshine.
