Arrrgh!! Something is wrong with my blog layout. Is it only with crummy internet explorer that it is impossible to see everything on it? Do I know anything about Html, computers, or the internet? Not really.
I didn't even realize that my harry potter post wasn't visible until just now...
What is going on here?! I tried to fix it.

ALSO my Ava post is all messed up..you can't see the title..or the words!!

I think its the ministry of magic.... trying to limit the discussion of potter..and....ava's birthday...hmmmm...


I'm not sure what the heck is wrong with my blog!! but stuff just isn't showing up. If only I knew anything about Html, or ...computers... maybe I could fix it. Blargh!!!

My Harry Potter post isn't even legible. Something fishy is going on here. Perhaps the Ministry of Magic is trying to limit blogs about such things.

Glass Pieces

Ok, Ok, so Glass Pieces is a piece by Philip Glass, I know.... However, Philip Johnson's Glass House is being reopened for public viewing. In Time magazine last week there was a story called "Splendor in Glass," detailing this reopening, and discussing the fate of other Modernist houses and buildings. You should check it out at time.com/glasshouse. The pictures of the Glass House are pretty amazing. My favorites though are of the other structures on the compound, such as the underground painting gallery, and the sculpture house. Craziness! And beautiful. And...clever. Those silly modernists.
Go look at the pictures now!!

Despite being nonfunctional in terms of contributing to society right now, i really have a good life. I have an awesome family, an awesome boy, great and beautiful friends, and two cute pigs.


Birthday Girl!

Baby Ava, ready for cake!

First taste of sugar. Mmmm!! Yummy!!

Maybe she'll have a crazy intense sweet tooth like me!

Or, even better, maybe she'll be the first Cooper to possess some sort of musical talent! Or interest, even! She does like to bang away on their piano.... and on her new keyboard!

The Good, the Bad and the Smokey

The good:Harry Potter 5, I must say it, was excellent. way better than I thought I would be. I don't know if the heart murmur was just acting up or what, but I was definitely worked up in the first scene with the Dementors. I was scared! And I've read the book! But I did like it, it was exciting and awesome. Partially because anything even slightly heroic received huge applause from the audience.
Also, I went to the movie with a good friend from high school/early college. It was great to see her again! Hopefully there will be more Laura and Sam time in the future.

The bad: I guess the bad would be that evil Umbridge woman. I freakin hated her. The people sitting around me probably hated me for saying "kick her ass! uuurghh! kicker in the face!!!", too often.

The Smokey: I suppose that other than the fact that it was really smokey, the Wolf Trap portion of the evening would actually go under the "good" portion. It was like a mini high school reunion. Very mini. Buford, who I haven't seen since graduation from high school, and I reminisced about people we knew, classes we took, and people we wouldn't want to see at a high school reunion. Many enjoyable hours were spent in high school w/ Buford and Randi in class, and with Samantha in choir or on stage.

Sorry for the boring nature of this post.... its not too smart or witty, nor does it really make much of a statement. But it was a good evening.

Blogging, eh?
I'm used to doing some myspace-ical babbling, so we shall see what occurs here.
Perhaps some music commentary, or some photos.
