Don’t call us, we’ll call you

It’s very hard to be serious or profound in the middle of the night

So I won’t even try.

I will, however, be random.  That is very easy in the middle of the night.

1. I love Google Reader.  Now I have only been using Google Reader for about 11 hours, but I’m already a big believer in it.  I am amazed at how much time it is going to save me by alerting me to the latest blog posts and delivering Slate articles the moment they’re published.  This is all I do lately, and now I can do it much, much faster.  Thanks Audrey, my awesome cousin/tech adviser.

2. I love this family picture from this Christmas.  How Neal is almost smiling, almost.  How my dad’s eyes are closed…this never fails!  How I am the only one wearing pajamas and making an intentionally strange face, two things I always do and sadly, too many people rarely do.  How many people look either suspicious or awkward, which is so often the case because pictures are rarely requested by the masses but by the select few who don’t mind making other people uncomfortable (I am in the latter category, although I didn’t request this particular pic).

L to R: Steve and Sharon (my parents), me, Neal, Robin-Elise (N's sister), Lorie and Kevin (N's parents)

3. I love how children give you occasion to write very strange captions on photos, like this one of my adorable niece, which I have very aptly titled, “Ayda sticking head in washing machine.”

ayda-sticking-head-in-washing-machine4. I love this bebe with the ridiculously long tongue!





  1. I love Google Reader as well – I’ve also only recently found it, and it’s such a Godsend! I can’t remember how I ever used to follow all my non-Wordpress blogs before I found it! And I love that you can ‘star’ favourite posts so you can find them again easily another time. Fabulous!

  2. Love your new blog platform and didn’t know you could “star” interesting.

  4. I love your parents! (1) They’re so cool. And (2) they definitely feel my pain about this whole bossy thing. 🙂

  5. Now, hold on there, Elizabeth. I did NOT request this particular picture–did you not see that part???
    Um, but yeah, you’re right, they think I’m bossy. 🙂
