3. We hosted a garlic party last weekend; garlic pasta, garlic dips, shrimp scampi. I think I'm still sweating out the garlic. I apologize to those of you who are unlucky enough to be on the treadmill next to me at the gym. I hope you're not a vampire.
4. My sister's birthday was this past week; mine is on Monday. As a result of our birthdays being five days apart, I have had the pleasure of sharing birthday festivities with her for most of my life (with the exception of the monumental ones, like 13th, 21st, and my 30th last year).
