Ok, I'm thinking we might have to add a movie night at the theater for our Smartini Retreat as well. . we clearly don't get out much.

In the backyard? Seriously? Oh, I guess in NY that might be feasible. . I was thinking NC, near the beach.

I emailed you umpteen times this morning, and Megan still came out ahead. Did Ash finally get her long email?

Don't tempt me, Pen. We just might get one of those Purity Tests after all. . . .

P.S. I meant to tell you that I finally got around to taking the 1930s housewife quiz, the one you scored in the 70s on. Yeah, I got a (-)8. Yeah. NEGATIVE. Eight. Impressive in its own way, no?

Andi said...

Nik - negative?! Really. I am not surprised. This makes me laugh and laugh. I so love you! We need to hang out more.
