It is the best day ever. So was yesterday, and so is tomorrow, and every day from now until forever.

Kicked off the day with lunch at Café Alma, a fairly new Mediterranean restaurant in Pleasant Ridge that will inspire many return visits because the menu is so chock full of healthy comfort food.

Then a matinee of Barbie.

Joe and Mike understood the assignment and I lamented not owning anything pink.

The movie? It was a hoot — fast paced, dense with DayGlo visuals and a point of view. My only qualm was (and I don’t think this is much of a spoiler) calling out cellulite as a major awful thing.

That aside, I hope the movie does well, influences minds to be less awful and Issue 1 gets voted down in Ohio.

I know that last bit is a stretch but it’s all connected.
