I went to yoga class yesterday. There was some trauma involved. I went to the right room, but a different class was actually in the room (my class had moved across the hall, but I didn't know that.)
So there was a guy standing on his head, and then class started and it was pretty clear that everyone knew a whole lot more than I did. Luckily, the teacher noticed, and sent me across the hall.
Where everyone was as clumsy as I.
I do feel kind of sore today, but in a good way.
And I'm deep into sewing Arwen the Elf's costume. Jesus. I am not a really good sewer. Plus the machine seems to be broken. It's okay -- it's actually easier by hand, although possibly slower.
I do think that sewing machines are inventions of the devil. They're always getting all snarled up, and leaving huge clots of thread stuck onto whatever you're sewing --
My sister is a great sewer.
I'm having trouble thinking up a crime for my detective to solve. Although I just this moment I thought of the idea of finding a dead body on the soccer field --
I mean, with kids around, you don't want it to be too scary.
Anyway -- should it be a graduate student gone nuts? some kind of intrigue about the Tosco plant? A small plastics factory in Richmond blowing up?
Nora had this idea about how we could hide a key outside out house -- have a tree full of keys, and only we would know that one of the keys was to our front door --
THat seemed like a nice detail.
OKay, then -- Have to go read my mail ...
