Latest genie discovery: I am a daughter of the American Revolution. My sixth great grandfather (!) fought in the Revolutionary War. Incredible! I can’t wait for the next genie surprise…

In birthday list news, I am currently read Saul Bellow’s Henderson the Rain King. It’s on the Modern Library’s Top 100 Novels list. And no wonder. It is hysterical! I have to read everything this man has written.

I am going to see the Punch Brothers tonight. Am excited to see some crazy string action. I am obsessed with their song “Movement and Location.”

And that’s all the news that’s fit to print…
