Argh!!!

A snippet of conversation between myself and my husband this morning:

“Did you know that Harper Lee makes an annual appearance in Tuscaloosa every year?” I ask my dh.

Him, baffled.  “What’s a Harper Lee?”

I love To Kill A Mockingbird so much I would have named our next son Atticus had we had one…and he has to ask me this????

Argh!!!!!!!

    Oooh, when? I’ll go with you.

    She’s very reclusive, you know.

  2. Jen Says:

    Sorry, Kimberly, she only meets with/speaks to the high school students who have won an essay contest (heard a piece on NPR the other day about this).

    Rhonda, I think it’s a good thing y’all quit reproducing when you did.

  3. Rhonda Says:

    Kimberly, I know. I would love, love, love to meet her.

    Jen, we have a 3 bedroom house and 2 kids. It was time to stop. My dh is more math minded, thank God, because I am absolutely terrible at it.

    Who can’t know about Harper Lee? I’m not even from Alabama and I know who Harper Lee is. Those essay contest winners better know how lucky they are to meet her.

    Hope the new computer install is going well. I know how much trouble it is — reinstalling programs, configuring things just the way you want, loading back in all the files you need.

    I’ll need a new computer next year (actually need a new one now, but it’ll have to wait another year). I should probably start dumping stuff to CD’s now just to get started. Should probably dump a lot of stuff period.

    Poor DH, I didn’t have to read her book in school but last year I read it with my son (because he had to read it). Jury duty is going okay, got picked yesterday but struck. I’m glad about that because the case was a domestic abuse that struck too close to home. Have a good Tuesday.
