Mount Hood Road Index 2.0 (Week 4)

1. OVERHEARD CONVERSATION OF THE WEEK
While walking through the display of swords in the Arms and Armor room of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a mother was heard telling her child: “Look, these were the first light sabers!”

2. THIS WEEK’S BEST MEAL
made a new recipe, courtesy of Boston Organics: Broccoli Bread Soup. It’s basically French Onion soup with broccoli instead of onion, but it’s simple and delicious, and only 204 calories a bowl.

3. ENTERTAINMENT
Took a road trip to New York City for the day, just to see and . Got to catch up on our Harry Potter CDs along the way, and got to eat good food and see great art as well. All in all a successful trip. Plus, we attended and ‘s re-gifting party and had a good time.

4. WHAT AM I GRATEFUL FOR THIS WEEK?
We’re both grateful for the opportunity to spend time with great friends. We’re also both grateful for having a fixed car and a fixed, repainted kitchen. We’re grateful for getting our car back in time so that we could drive to New York City. Also, this week we’re grateful for having decent coats and our heating included in our condo fees, because it’s been fucking cold.

5. ANNOYING THINGS IN THE NEWS THIS WEEK
One of us is annoyed that her candidate isn’t winning the Democratic race. The other one of us is annoyed that the Republicans are suddenly looking so clear about who their candidate is. Both of us, however, are delighted to not have to utter the words “President Romney” for at least four more years. Also, in the sports world, one rich team in a high profile market (L.A.) is allowed to steal a top tier player from a team that is on the verge of collapsing (Memphis)? Is it just a coincidence that the two general managers negotiating this wink, wink deal are both affiliated with L.A.? I think not. And Coach Popovich agrees.
