I have to remember to hang out with her more often. As for the gift exchange, I get a sweater and some pants. My sister Beryl and her husband, Willy, give me a couple books that I can’t even imagine reading until 2008 or so.

Yes. ” My dad tells me that he has calculated the speed of light in fathoms per fortnight so that he can be the only person in the world who knows that particular piece of information. 98 x 1014” he says. “Wow. ” My tone is definitely snappish, aggressive. My dad looks a little hurt. I’m not sure why I said it the way I did—I guess I felt he’d one-upped me—but it wasn’t in the holiday spirit, that’s for sure. bruise My left eye has turned a bright lobster shell red. I’m not positive it’s tied to my exhausting marathon reading sessions, but I like to think it is.
