Gilly typing

Mom's just there to hold her steady and help with spelling.

We're all sick here at home.

It's some sort of virus, but in the days of the "pending pandemic" that's no big deal.

It was early on, when Gilly started barking like a seal, that things got a little interesting. (Note: Everyone is fine. Don't let the crack about pandemics throw you.)

A phone call to the doctor and a prescription to prednizone later, and we find out that she's got "the croup." 'Scuse me? Isn't that a devise to get horses to move faster? A house for chickens? Perhaps an illness concurrent with "the vapors" or "the scarlet pimpernel"?

Nope, despite the archaic name, the croup is an inflammation of the throat just above the vocal chords. So she got a small dose of steroids, lots of steam, and she's doing much better now.

Hey, I wonder if the steroids will help her homerun average. Lord knows it's done wonders for Barry Bonds.

Massachusetts floods
Bad rains and panic ensues
New Orleans just laughs


If you could be reincarnated as any inanimate object, what would you choose?

This is me and my sweetie, Gillian Sophia Ide, born July 2005.

And no, I'm not eating her. I'm blowing raspberries.

New site!

Hi, all.

I've recreated Webbed Legions! I thought maybe it was time to move away from Harvard's Web space. Although they've been wonderful, it's time to move on. More on "why" later.
