Best of the HBO Blogosphere — 3/31/08

Kerri Thoreson/OnLocation North Idaho

Traditionally, robins hopping in the wet grass in search of worms are the symbolic sign of Spring. This past weekend’s snow storms seemed to befuddle dozens of robins in my Post Falls neighborhood. Saturday morning upwards of 50 fat, round robins clustered close to the back deck sharing the shelter with dozens of sparrows, several starlings and even a Northern Flicker/Kerri Thoreson, OnLocation North Idaho.

I wasn’t the only parent hoping to burn off some excess kid energy under the golden arches; there were probably thirty children careening around the plastic structure, screeching and laughing and bouncing off the walls like electrons in an excited molecule. As you might imagine, the nine or so tables in the playland area were full; we were lucky enough to walk through the door just as another family was leaving, and seated ourselves with relief. After the kids hoovered their fries, they scampered off to play, leaving me alone at the fourtop amidst the confetti of crumpled up napkins and empty ketchup packets/Katrina, Notes On A Napkin.
