First let me say that I am touched that Sam dedicated his BAREFOOT CONTESSA blog entry to me. I know how much that entry must mean to him, judging by how many times I heard that “good neighbor policy” story.
While I’m talking about Sam, I just have to tell you a little detail of my life, just because it’s amusing to me. So Sam works the front desk at Burton Conner, and often I’ll see him while coming and going. It’s just a few seconds before I’m out the front door or into the elevator or staircase, but whenever I see him, as long as he doesn’t look terribly busy I make a point to say hi. Now, as I mentioned, it’s only a few seconds, so I just blurt out a crisp, “Hey, Sam.”
And every single freaking time, it makes me think of Clarissa Explains it All.
Please, please, someone out there tell me you know exactly what I’m talking about and it doesn’t make me crazy.
Anyway, my birthday has been pretty boring so far. I turn twenty, which I’m starting to refer to as my “early life crisis.” (No longer a teenager! What?!) And I’m still at home even though all of my friends have gone back to school because I have to wait to get the rest of the stitches from my wisdom tooth extraction out. I really, really want to be enjoying IAP right now, but instead I’ve been spending hours upon hours watching midmorning television programming. (I don’t want to admit to how many episodes of MTV’s Super Sweet Sixteen I watched in horror….)
Well, that’s all from me. Back to your regularly scheduled programming. (Mostly I just couldn’t let Sam get away without mentioning it was his birthday too. =P)
