Family and Cloris Leachman

What a lovely evening. Still making our way through it - watching this crazy roast, and the very funny schtick of Cloris Leachman. She is a funny, funny woman...She was the only really good thing about the movie Spanglish...

Ooooooh! Sarah Silverman is coming up. EXCELLENT! She is rude. Should be good!

I just want to say, though, how interesting and oftentimes lovely it is to suddenly have a whole new family when you get married. You marry into a whole new wealth of fantastical characters and lovely human beings, and it is really kinda fun, challenging and fascinating to get to know these strangers who are a large part of the history of the significant other that you love. Now, of course I have known my husband's aunt and uncle for a few years now, but it takes time to really spend all that much time with these people and you get to know them better each time you have an event together. Tonight was no exception, and we really enjoyed our dinner, and it was a night full of great stories, good laughs and of course....FOOD! Good bloody food, man. Love the fondue. Love that my husband is a great prodige of Jamie Oliver these days and made an incredible sage, cheddar and baked onion soup. And love the three (four?) bottles of wine we went through...

In any event, it was a great night of food, wine, family and yes... Cloris Leachman.
