We did not have Memorial Day growing up. I remember distinctly when I first found out about it. I was a freshman in college an one of the cute boys told me he was having a party at his parents beach house over Memorial Day weekend. I really wanted to go but I had no idea when that was. It was 1967 and I didn't have Wikipedia. It was a stumper.

I grew up in the Southeast. In the 50's, we did not morn or honor Yankees - too soon. Seriously, it was. Amazing now to think about.

I left the south when I went to college and learned a lot of stuff like there were lots of people who had never heard of black eyed peas and pizza was sold everywhere and was delicious and Easter Monday was not a holiday but Memorial Day was. Wow. It was a different country.

Since then I have always lived in places that 'did' Memorial Day but it still feels foreign to me.

Betty seems good. There has been a couple of not great looking offerings in the litter box but she's eating and she's not throwing up and she's demanding attention and hissing at Travis - in other words, normal. Whew.

I think I'm going to get up and make me some breakfast and then head over to Northgate to JC Penney's to return the pants. I've never been in the mall part of the mall and a little walk would be good for me so I'm thinking I'll park at the other end and walk the length to Penney's. A mall walker. I don't have a track suit. Hope they let me do it in civies.

I have Bridesmaids on TiVo and I've never seen it, so that may be the afternoon's project.

But, first... breakfast.

Home from the mall. I don't have to do that again for a while, I don't think. But it was fine and missions accomplished.
Best thing I saw was at the +Sprint booth. Two 20 something guys were working the booth. One was waiting on a young woman clearly confused and asking a whole lotta questions. The other guy was intently and enthusiastically entertaining her son - 4 or 5 years old - with one of the phones. It was just adorable.

You know how models will move around and change poses and the camera clicks away? Well, that's what Travis was doing today on top of the cupboard. He's such a funny cat.

Betty continues to be fine.

I watched Bridesmaids. I love that Roy from The IT Crowd got such a great part but what in the heck does he know about policing? And where was Moss??? I watched it all the way to the end but I'm really glad I did not pay movie theater prices to see it.
