Mount Hood Road Index 2.0 (Week 6)

1. FOUND OBJECT OF THE WEEK
This was my fortune inside the piece of Dove chocolate I had on my birthday. It was my pre-birthday cake appetizer:
Fortune inside my Dove chocolate

2. LIFE’S LITTLE INCONVENIENCES
Snowstorm shut down Logan, which shaved off a day of ‘s birthday weekend. But we had a lovely brunch on Saturday, and a great couple days in Baltimore once we got there. Travelocity continues to fuck up – first they canceled the reservation without fully explaining the options, promising a partial refund, now that refund has yet to materialize. Fortunately, American Express rocks, and they’ve frozen the whole charge in order to investigate. Also, does not have eight arms, and therefore cannot knit four sweaters at a time. She says ‘this is a problem.’

3. ENTERTAINMENT
Running around Baltimore. Driving over “speed humps” which is endlessly amusing, because we’re 12. Gawking about Tilda Swinton’s dress at the Oscars, which seems to have been missing a sleeve. Visiting one of the coolest museums we’ve ever been to. Having a spontaneous gathering to eat birthday cake, because our friends rock.

4. WHAT AM I GRATEFUL FOR THIS WEEK?
is grateful for a large box of yarn that showed up on our doorstop. Retail therapy is good. is grateful for all the birthday messages on in her email, on her voice mail, and on her Facebook page…makes a girl feel loved.

5. THIS WEEK’S BEST MEAL
So many contenders – the mushroom barley soup, vegan “crab cakes”, vegan jambalaya, and blue corn muffin with maple-infused butter at One World Cafe, the creamy gnocchi at Germano’s Trattoria, the Italian pastries, the cupcakes, the birthday cake…man, it was rich and delicious week. And an expensive one. Did we cook at all? We can’t remember.
