Two Fat Ladies
Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright
Last night, I had dinner at Dad's house. I completely lost track of time and ended up staying until almost 11:00. We were sitting at the kitchen table watching a special on Jennifer Paterson. She's the one on the left in the photo above. Before she passed away from lung cancer last year, she was the co-star on the BBC series Two Fat Ladies. She seemed like a really awesome woman. She loved good food, and she was expelled from Catholic school when she was 15 years old, so I can definitely relate to her.

Took a road trip to Michigan with my friend Liz and her little girl. Her parents live in a suburb of Detroit and they aren't in the best of health, so she wanted them to be able to spend some time with their granddaughter. Of course, I had to pull over and take a cheesy picture next to the "Welcome to Detroit" sign. The photo didn't come out all that great, so I tried to fix it digitally as best as I could, but I think I just made it worse.
