Yesterday was Valentine's Day. Just like when I was a kid, I gave valentines to some people and other people gave valentines to me. So funny and surprising.


Jo jumped up and over me and my chair and my compy yesterday, knocking my compy to the floor. My pretty new mouse works no more.


Every time I think about Whitney Houston, I feel sad. I remember thinking when I first saw her that she was so fresh and cute and wow could she sing. I don't really pay a whole lot of attention to the lives of celebrities, but through the years noticed her face on magazines while waiting to pay for my groceries and was vaguely aware that her life seemed chaotic. But now her voice is silent, gone--so soon. Her passing feels like I imagine it felt to my parents when Judy Garland died. Yes, there is lots of big bad far worse stuff going on in the world. But still, what a loss.


And if you need a bit of boost, just check this out. You probably can't see her new sunglasses perched atop her head, all stylin' while she blows her cool, new, non-spill bubbles, but it made me smile even after my computer took a dive off my lap...

I do love that photo, and those bubble containers are seriously awesome.

Sorry about your mouse, and Whitney. Pretty sad.
