Apologies to Kenneth Patchen


THE MURDER OF TWO MEN BY A YOUNG KID WEARING LEMON-COLORED GLOVES
Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Now.


Our visas have been approved!
The big silver bird awaits!
Looking at 3/24 for the move date...details forthcoming.

V. has been watching the winter olympics each night after Boog goes to bed. Every time a male French athlete appears onscreen, she asks me what I think of his name. Fabien? Antoine? Serge? No disrespect to our downhill-skiing overlords, but I can't picture naming The Tadpole any of those things; they have a certain please-beat-me-up quality to them. Maybe an Irish name isn't so nonsensical for an Asian kid born in France.

(the picture is one of the results of a Google Image search for "Fabien". Many of the others were apparently gay porn. Note to self: Clear out browser cache, stat.)
