Grand Old Dame

It's after 10:30 and I very recently finished consuming two tequila drinks over dinner at Tres with B and Jamie (see above photo) and so instead of attempting to edit and post the web log entry that I had planned to edit and post tonight I'm just gonna borrow a video clip that my mom embedded on her blog earlier today which features my firecracker of a grandmother being just too damn adorable in her reaction to a surprise from members of my family on her seventy-fifth birthday.

I think I've watched the above clip a dozen or more times over the course of the last few days and it makes me very happy but also kinda sad and it brings back so many great memories and even some regrets and I wish like hell I'd had the chance to come out to her and that she was still alive and man do I miss that grand old dame.
