I am at work and——

I’m not working.
I haven’t actually worked since we got back.  I sit in my very clean, very sterile office and surf the web. Watch youtube clips.  Giggle over past blog posts. 
I’ve seen exactly one patient today.  I know I’m not supposed to love this schedule but I really really do. Heck, I’m still being paid– so, why not get paid for googling "Hugh Dancy"?
Oh, and that’s really not that bad.  I checked the URL history on my computer and — my coworkers have some very interesting web-site favorites. I clicked on one of them and Ackkkkk!
I shut down the computer just to cleanse it.  Now I can’t get that page off my history, dammit. 

Back to Hugh Dancy. I can’t wait to see his new movie "Adam" in which he plays a young man with Aspergers.  The trailer is awesome.  I haven’t yet recovered from watching him in George Eliot’s "Daniel Deronda."  I re-watched it recently with my girls.  There was a good deal of collective sighing and during the "Am I a Jew?" scene one of my daughters declared, "How is it possible that someone could have been made so perfectly?

I am currently reading Markus Zusak’s I am the Messenger.  It’s a fun read, not as good as The Book Thief  but I don’t think it’s humanly possible to achieve that level of brilliance twice.

I’ll finish up this post with my latest installment of "Look what my kids are doing now."
Yesterday afternoon I came up to my six-year old’s room to find her lying quietly on the rug.  Her eyes were closed but I did not believe that she had fallen asleep- it was still daylight.  I called her name and she opened her eyes and gave me a serious look.
"I am talking to the fairies," she told me calmly. "When I shut my eyes they can see me, but when I open them I disappear."
I digested this for a while and then inquired," What are you talking to the fairies about?"
"Flopsy [the stuffed rabbit] has been sick for five days. I am asking them to make her better."
And she promptly closed her eyes again.
