Lenny...the Today Show

Happy Birthday (belated) to Today Show uber audience member Lenny. He is well-known to regular viewers of the Today Show. When I went to NYC with my mom and Aunt many many years ago, we went to the Today Show and started chatting up Lenny. He gave us lots of tips and told us that he was standing in the best spot and to stay with him. We did and sure enough Ann Curry interviewed us for one of the audience segments. It was a wonderful experience.

Here's more on Lenny from the Today Show blog.

almost birthday time....

My sister did not want me to have a party for the kids this year -- and since they are her kids I agreed with her. We decided we would only have them take one friend each to Main Event on the big day but then when I priced it, it was cheaper to have a party for ten kids than six separate individuals. So we are having a tiny party. Then of course we have to add in the cakes, party bags, decorations....oy vey it is going to start adding up!

But they are worth it -- spoiled but worth it.
