Mount Hood Road Index 2.0

1. LIFE’S LITTLE INCONVENIENCES
‘s endocrinologist said to her, “Young women don’t die of thyroid problems. They get annoyed by thyroid problems.” Some of you already know the rest of the story behind this, and for those of you who don’t, we will tell you the details next time we see you or talk to you…

2. OVERHEARD CONVERSATION IN CLEVELAND CIRCLE
Older Asian gentleman talking to two young white women, at the foot of an apartment building in Cleveland Circle: “I wash women’s hair!” That’s all we heard of the conversation, as we were just walking by, but it was an odd thing to overhear, and it’s hard to imagine what the context for the rest of the conversation would have been.

3. THIS WEEK’S BEST MEAL
Took ourselves on a date night, after last weekend’s crankiness. Went to Oleanna, which has really amazing food and a swanky by laid back atmosphere. Highly recommended. Also, we enjoyed Shabbat dinner on our deck, and had Indian food and beer with a friend on our deck another night. Yay for summer. It’s finally here.

4. ENTERTAINMENT
Spent our Memorial Day taking the T down to the Boston harbor, where we hopped a ferry and went out to Spectacle Island, which was beautiful and just the right kind of getaway. Can’t believe it’s taken us so long to discover the harbor islands. We’re totally going back. Also, we watched the entire Indiana Jones series on DVD and took in the newest one this weekend. By the way, in case you don’t remember this, the second movie sucked. It should be called Temple of Shit. But the others were fun.

5. WHAT AM I GRATEFUL FOR?
Yarn. Irish accents. Good beer. Salty sweets. Chocolate. Not having to sit in traffic on holiday weekends. The escapist qualities of explosion movies. ‘s parents. Our friends. Each other.
