I have stuff to do. Because of that, I thought I’d share with y’all another note I received from my mother:

I just got a call from a lady from church about an Italian Creme Cake recipe that I’m taking to a party tomorrow night, so I’m torn: should I go to the store now and buy the ingredients or wait for the veterinarian’s call about Cassie? [AJS note: her big-ass cat] I don’t want to miss the finale of “The Apprentice.”

My mom has an exciting life.


The phrase “that being said” and its variant “that said.” FYI: they suck.
