Designed to Sell
AEJ and I are flying back to southern Florida tomorrow morning. My mom had to move up to Columbus unexpectedly last week, and she left her house without having time to get it ready to sell. So, AEJ and I are heading there tomorrow and spending 48 hours doing our best cleaning, painting, packing, and furniture placement so that we can get the house on the market on Thursday. It’s a good thing we watch a lot of HGTV.
We’ll be home late Thursday night. Come Friday, I have to really get cracking on the Sax Concerto. I will have lost three weeks of work time by then. September 1 will be here pretty quickly, I fear…
“Knocked Up” was fine. Not nearly as good or funny as “40 Year Old Virgin,” but entertaining. The overall premise was pretty lame — that a couple with absolutely nothing in common except a shared night of drunken sex would end up happily together simply because of a baby. Would that ever work? I’ve heard of marriages staying together “for the children,” and that always strikes me as unhealthy for everybody, but a committed relationship that starts because of an accidental pregnancy? I can’t wait for the sequel. Not sure what it’ll be called… “I Resent Junior,” maybe, or, “I Knocked Up the Nanny, Too.”
