I'm reading a great book called Standard Deviation by Katherine Heiny. Very funny, lots of New York moments. Quirky, recognizable characters. In fact, it reminds me of The Accidental Tourist (without the sad parts). The Accidental Tourist is one of my favorite books.
I feel a little sad. Our fish died. Zoe is relatively unbothered and just wants to get a new one tomorrow.

I like the absence of rules.
I was reading a friend's blog and she used "dog leg" as a verb. I looked it up and it means to bend sharply, like a dog's hind leg.

Today I went to a restaurant that I've been to a million times, and ordered something different. It's nice to step out of your comfort zone sometimes. I got a tofu eggplant stir fry, which barely had any eggplant, but lots of other vegetables. And it came with a nice sauce and white rice. On the drinks menu, there was Justin Cucumberlake (but it was way too early for gin). A blackboard on the wall said, Chering is Caring.

Our fish is thriving. His name is Chase now, so he won't have gender identity issues. I was worried about him initially; he was floating listlessly the day we got him. But after I cleaned his tank, he perked right up. It's a nice small fishbowl, so it's fairly easy to clean.

We got a fish. It's a boy, but Zoe wanted to name it Lily anyway. Hopefully it won't have a gender identity crisis.
I got back from Ireland a few days ago, and I find myself missing the veggie burger at Salt N Pepper. Slathered with mayo, plus a side of "regular chips," it was pretty much perfect. The Bailey's hot chocolate wasn't bad, either. And a long ramble on the remote island of Inismor, full of cows and roses, sea and sky...

About to finish The Little Bookshop on the Seine by Rebecca Raisin. Cute story, and I learned some new things about Paris. And it's part of a series.

I just finished The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand. It was fantastic. She is probably my favorite author.

I just watched Before Sunset. I'm not sure how many times I've seen this movie, but I love it just as much as the first time.
