1) I thought my plum tree was going right to leaf without flowering. Wrong! I noticed it was covered in little white flowers yesterday. Yay!

2) I finally watched "Hamlet" last night. That means that I have now watched every Oscar-winning Best Picture except for this year's winner. Yay! I am a geek!
