The Next Two Musketeer Memes...

My girl is terribly busy; she has a huge bean-paper to write, but she gave me five minutes to write the next two memes. She says to blame her for the reason we haven't been posting; the computer got sick with a virus, though I don't know how, as it's never around other computers to contract it from, and then papers were due and everything else.

My girl says she has started counting down the days until the semester ends.

Anyhow, the next two memes are... [drumroll]

How do you protect your beans from food? Lily likes to cook (she's mastered meringue and something called floating islands, very French, but that's it), but ever since she started class her schedule has been really tight and there's been no time for cooking. Lily's mom makes good food, but Lily's mom is usually working. Needless to say, TAKEOUT! All those people who have touch it {shudder, shudder}! But it's awfully good.

And for the second meme, I have a conundrum...

Can we protect our beans from loss?

I worry that when my mother, brother, sisters, and I die Lily will be very lonely. She will have no animal left to snuggle with after a long day. I know she does worry about it; how can she not when the death of Tom, her sweetheart of a dog, is still so fresh in her mind?

She said she likes the idea of the Rainbow Bridge and that Tom is there waiting.

I've run the numbers on Lily's big, scientific calculator, and if we all live very long lives, we will be with Lily into her thirties. That means by the time we all go to the Rainbow Bridge, Lily will have stopped worrying about us dying and start enjoying us being with her. Am I right?

Well... Lily needs the computer back...

Au revoir!
