I actually owed the IRS more money this year. I guess I earned more at web design than I thought! Still, the damage is not as bad as it could have been, since I was able to deduct educational expenses related to my singing.

Received some bad news regarding rugby. The B-side hooker, who was going to be hooking for both A and B sides tomorrow, had a death in the family and won't be attending tomorrow's game. The back-up A-side hooker is also the A-side loose-head prop. He wasn't going to hook on the A-side because there is no one to prop in his place. Now he will be forced to hook for both A and B sides. Guess who will likely take his place as the A-side prop, against one of the best Boston-area rugby clubs? You got it! I haven't received confirmation yet, but there isn't really anyone else to do it unless Fergo, who tore up his ankle a couple of months ago and hasn't been playing, feels secure enough to make a go of it. So, not only will I be taken to school by their Old Boys at 11, I most likely get to follow that up with a thorough ass-beating by the B-siders afterwards at 12. (And remember, since Boston RFC is a Super League team, their B side is as good as, if not better than, our A side.)

When the paramedics cart me away, someone be sure to tell them that I'm an opera singer and cannot be intubated unless there are no other options, and then to use only the smallest possible tube.

You deserve a beating after forgetting to call your mother to wish her a happy anniversary.

Re: Rubgy
I could have sworn I spoke to her today. Maybe it was only every other day this week.

Happy Anniversary! Sorry I didn't call. I was rather swamped all day with something else specific to this date.

Re: Rubgy
A rather taxing experience, no doubt.

Wondering what to call the latest addition to our household, I immediately rejected calling the Roomba Rambo. Perhaps I should call it Shelly.

I wasn't surprised that you called so soon after I posted my reply to your post. I was disappointed, though, that you didn't call after I made my initial post mentioning the subject, which I did 4/14.

Re: Rubgy
See, I didn't really forget, and I certainly meant to call earlier in the day. But I hardly got a chance to catch my breath, doing taxes and work-related stuff during the day and my date in the evening. Sorry I wasn't able to call sooner. I hope you guys had an enjoyable anniversary.

Re: Rubgy
You haven't been checking my posts or you would know all about our evening. You might even learn about the latest addition to our household, which I assumed you were aware of when I made my comments here.

Re: Rubgy
I figured you'd respond something like that. Yes, I read your post last night. So, yes, even though I sent you anniversary wishes, I know you wrote you had an enjoyable time.

Re: Rubgy
I've posted three, two about the anniversary and one about the robot. Have you read all three?

Re: Rubgy
I read everything through last night. One of your posts last night mentioned the robot that Cathy bought you. If you've posted more on that today, I haven't read it. But then, all of today was consumed by rugby-related activities. I only recently opened up my computer to check my e-mail and write the post about today's game, and now I'm going to sleep and give my body some much needed rest.

Re: Rubgy
One anniversary posting mentioned that Cathy gave us the robot, another described the robot in some detail.

Re: Rubgy
Yes, I'm aware of what you've posted. I read the former on Friday night and the latter this morning.
