8-pointed Star

Quickie update

Last night we went to see Phantom of the Opera starring Lon Chaney and Mary Philbin at the Redford Theatre. It was interesting as an early example of movie-making but the best part was the musical accompaniment, performed live by Tony O'Brien.

This morning I went a Nia Jam. Other than having Jean dance for me in her living room and a few clips on youtube, I've never seen Nia danced before, let alone participated. I surprised myself by lasting the entire hour. Apparently my couch potato self isn't as out-of-shape as I thought. Not that I did great, mind you. I paid attention to my knees and didn't do anything I thought might make them painful.

After the Jam I stopped at Costco for a few groceries. The store was a zoo and they were completely out of carts, but I managed to get what I wanted sans cart and, for once, picked a fast moving checkout lane. All went well until I brought the three-pack of Soy Milk into the house. The box ripped open and I watched in dismay as one of the half gallon cartons tumbled down the basement stairs like a rectangular slinky. Amazing, that wasn't the one that broke open. No, the one that managed to stay inside the shipping carton was the one that spilled milk over the landing.
