Direct Correlations

DC #1: Beautiful weather and decreased amount of time spent on computer, and therefore blogging.

DC #2: New outdoor table and increased amount of time spent on balcony.

DC #3: First-time spectator at lacrosse game and increased amount of time spent looking for a lacrosse team for beginners.

DC #4: Brother's approaching wedding and increased amount of time spent avoiding future purchase of clear shoes bride requested all bridesmaids to wear.

DC #5: Purchase of cheap books at a thrift store in Indio, California and inability to stop reading Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, researching Fannie Flagg, and being shocked at the fact the book is nearly 20 years old.

DC #6: Broken cell phone screen and decrease in contact with all friends coupled with increase in time spent organizing teaching materials.

DC #7: New cell phone coupled with loss of all phone numbers stored in old phone and reading almost the entire Sunday paper this morning...which usually doesn't happen because I feel the need to make use of those last free weekend minutes.

DC #8: Spending five minutes creating list of direct correlations and desire to stop blogging for the day.

It's such a nice day if you're on the east coast (don't know what the west coast is like). And the strangest thing about your post below is that I too, yesterday, woke with inspiration to finish a final paper. I unfortunately did not finish it but I got a great deal done, which will be added to the large amount that is already done (researched). Just found your blog by accident, clicking the Next Blog button. Nice.

Fried Green Tomatoes was the best of Fannie's books. It definitely cracked me up and made me cry. Loved it!
