We did ten loads of laundry yesterday. Ten. My mom said, "Didn't you do laundry before you left for Omaha?" No. I was writing a book. And the weather was varied enough between cool and warm that it was really not a problem, what with towels and dustcloths and this and that, to accumulate ten loads of laundry.

This has to be some kind of record for filthiness of three adults living in a house.

Having vanquished Melvin the Laundry Monster, I am now ready to head out to the airport. I should have connectivity while we're gone but probably won't be spending a heck of a lot of time on the internet. So! If you've been Captain Incommunicado lately, now's the perfect time to write me a chatty and leisurely e-mail about what's going on with you, and I will get to read it but answer in a chatty and leisurely fashion myself. Doesn't that sound nice? Of course it does, and now I'm off.
