92% on the exam. That pulls me up to 84% overall in the class - missing that week hurt me.
Yard Sale Scores: top-secret gifts for my siblings (hint: 80's flashbacks), three galvanized aluminum tubs (one of which will be turned into a patio planter for Julia), a copy of The Adventures of Tintin: The Broken Ear, some books and a tiny little Ganesh statuette for the boys, and an awesome knit cap.
The Ganesh statuette reminds me - if you have an hour and a half to burn, watch Sita Sings The Blues. It's an adorable little animated film of the story of Sita and Rama and the end of their marriage, from the Ramayan, and the music in it is mostly 1920's Annette Hanshaw songs. It is partially narrated by three Indians recalling the Rama stories from their childhoods, and interwoven with the story of the filmmaker's own epic breakup. It was at one point being prevented from distribution because the copyright holders of Hanshaw's songs want to be paid upfront rather than strike a deal for a share in the profits. Be patient with the structure and let it charm you.
On March 26th, I'm teaching a vegetable gardening class for church. Should be fun, and should spur me to get the side yard cleaned up!
