My son Ian is eight today. Wow, that went fast! It seems doubly strange to stand the weblog-thing beside my son. I think he looks better! [Than the blog.]
It seems like just yesterday
The event was covered by this blog and even made the Weblogs.com “Top 100,” which was a page ranking system prior to Technorati, which I think is also gone.

Today is the V-Man, Garret Vreeland’s, N-th birthday! Watch out for those dangerous meta characters!
I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with my childhood best (and arguably, just flat out best) friend on the phone tonight. Politically, it is likely that he is as opposite to my 1960s ‘liberalism’ as can be. Yet we seem to get along wonderfully. Perhaps because we really do not speak of such things.

She is on her way back from a month at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich doing research for her dissertation.
[Update I]: On the ground! Cha cha cha!

When will we return?
