Max and Alice

Today, Alice told me her names for my two smallest fingers.



Max and Alice.


That seems about right.

Deep thoughts

Me: Max, don’t throw the car. Roll it. If you throw the car you could hurt me.

Max: Don’t throw car. Every people go cry.

Me: …

Me: Yes, Max. You’re right. It could make every people go cry.

(This from someone wearing trousers on his head just an hour earlier.)

To my jaw bebawlthered boy on the morn ‘ter his displeasure

Though you haven’t many tomorrows yet

–futuretalk leaves you cold–

pain marooned unceasing in your jaw

does it seem to last forever?

yet, out of this little pain

will grow some mighty chomps!

O my toothless son!

Your tongue will soon have many friends

grin festooned with many tooths

joys of crunch and clack and chew

2006 – It was a very big year.

2006 was a very big year for us.

I graduated from the Information School with a Masters of Library and Information Science (MLIS).

S and I travelled to Greece for three weeks.

We got married in October.

And, perhaps the biggest news of all: S is pregnant.

I expect 2007 will be an even more exciting year!

(With lots of photos forthcoming, I’m sure!)

Value for value received

The other day, I was walking to work. I heard a tching! and noticed a quarter rolling around on the sidewalk. Looking up, I saw a crow (or a raven?) hopping on the telephone pole. I assume he must have dropped it from above. I picked up the quarter (Nebraska) and continued on to work.

At lunch, there was a (the?) crow hopping around on the steps by the canal. I fed him some of my sandwich. At least 25 cents worth.

my mickle baestie

Sadly, we had to get rid of our fluffy, hairy cat.

The final straw was when she peed on us while we slept at 5 in the morning.

Still, we’re sorry to see her go. Hopefully, the animal rescue shelter will find her a good home.
