AA was founded 76 years ago yesterday (which is when we ate this) by Dr. Bob Smith and Bill Wilson in Akron, OH. Two thumbs up for mutual aid groups. Everything I know about AA I learned from Infinite Jest. What a weird person I am.
Tonight Mom and Dad and I went to Himalayan Fusion for dinner. It was good. I'm not going to post a recipe for the past because I wasn't watching and because I think my mom just cooked some penne, sauteed some zucchini, and made basil pesto in a food processor with oil, lemon, salt, and pine nuts.
Grandma pointed out yesterday that it was Saul Bellow's birthday. I read Humboldt's Gift years ago. Didn't really like it. Anyway, Grandma wrote me this lovely ditty:
Grazie mille.When the moon hits your eye
Like penne or pizza pie
But a gauche gastronomical slight
On old Saul Bellow is a serious fright.
Thus we historians must ask you why
When you know he was a respected guy
Not even breakfast?
When I asked her what she thought Saul might like, she replied with this:
While U Do the Hokey PokeyU breakfast on 'Shrooms SmokeyWith a Diet Cherry CokeyThat's what it's all aboutThat's the teddy bears' picnic
Now I know where my talent comes from.
