Just Keep Swimming

You know what you gotta do when life gets you down?
Just keep swimming
Just keep swimming
Just keep swimming swimming swimming
What do we do we swim, swim, swim

I'm spending a lot of time humming "Just keep swimming" these days. Dory (the fish played by Ellen DeGeneres in Finding Nemo) is something of a personal hero of mine.

(Apropos of nothing, Ellen is reported to have told an interviewer after the movie that she loved doing the voice of a talking fish, and was now unable to eat fish because she felt such a strong connection to them. She also commented that in her next movie she wanted to play a pint of Haagen-Dazs.)

My grandmother has apparently mistaken a tube of manicure glue for her eyedrops. This, you would think would be a HUGE medical problem, but apparently has only cost her her eyelashes, which, I guess, like the lion's mane in Dragnet will grow back. ("Kids! It'll grow back!" "Yaaaaaaaaayyyyyy!") This has also justified my lifetime choice to bite my nails and do very little to groom them. Clearly, manicure supplies are dangerous.

Also, (lehavdil, or from the agonizing to the stupid) my House rerun has been cancelled in favor of stupid 24. (Sorry, RenReb, but nothing beats House. And 24 is too angsty for me.)

On the plus side, we've chosen a ketubah, and will order invites later this week.

And I got to hear the fella read aloud the Interfaith Ketubah Text #1 in the manner of a Southern preacher.
