I just got off the phone with my mother. We always talk about movies we’ve seen. I just completely exhausted myself trying to explain The Artist to her. I said it was a silent movie. She said, “What?” And I said, “I SILENT movie.” She said, “Do they talk?” And I said, “Well…sort of, but their mouths move and sometimes they show you the words they are saying. You know, like the first movies in the 1920s.” She said, “Oh yes! I see what you mean, but do they talk?” This went on for a really really long time. Then we changed subjects. Mom said she was getting a machine that makes plastic bags. I said, “Huh??” Then she said, “Makes plastic bags!” She described it a little more and then I finally decided she might be talking about a vacuum sealer. We talked a little more and then said our goodbyes. She called right back after we hung up the phone. She always calls right back after we hang up the phone. I answered and she asked, “Do you have gutters on your house?” I said, “Yes.” Then she said goodbye again. I suspect this won’t be the only call about gutters that I will receive today.
I promised yesterday to take pictures of my Super Bowl appetizers to go along with the recipes I posted. Click here for recipes. I made my appetizers a little early, but I plan to drink and eat all day and maybe watch some football so it's all good.
