Maira Kalman has another series on NYTimes.com. I think you need to check it out. There are four parts so far so make sure you read all of them. You'll thank me for it. Whenever I see her stuff it makes me wish we were neighbors so she could invite me over for scones. I, of course, would be too bashful to invite her over. She would have to make the first move.
Reading it made me remember that once upon a time I had a book of hers that has since vanished. I'm fairly certain it is not in my home which means that I have lent it out to someone. This is not unusual. I am always lending books out knowing that I probably won't see them again, mostly because I can never remember who I gave them to. But I kind of miss that book.
Now on the subject of things found: I spent part of Monday cleaning my room and found a CD that has been missing for years. Seriously, years. It was in a CD player that I never use that was tucked underneath my reading chair. When I noticed the CD player I instantly knew, after years of searching, that the CD was in it, and it was. Victory!
Would you like to make a guess as to which CD it was? If you get it right I'll send you box of brownies.
