Radio programs

Today I went with my mom and grandma to hear a recording of Selected Shorts, "Funny Fiction" hosted by Isaiah Sheffer. If you've never listened before its wonderful, like being a little kid and being completely absorbed by someone reading out loud to you. My favorite reading was David Rakoff reading "Your Mother and I," by Dave Eggers. I can't wait until they play it so that I can say, "Hey thats me laughing!" My mom is kind of obsessed with NPR so by proxy I am as well. In the car growing up it was the only station that was allowed to be on.
Afterwards we had awesome meatloaf at my grandparents house where I took my pictures. Speaking of my pictures, have I mentioned how much I hate my point and shoot? My boots are brown and my dress is black, not that you can really tell.
Don't forget to enter the giveaway to win a beautiful rosette!
