goodbye kurt

alas, kurt vonnegut has left us. when i was a teenager, i inhaled all of his books (to date at the time) in one summer. i fell in love with his style, insights, and humor immediately.

i've re-re-read several of those books since, and in college i went to a reading he did in new york when "timequake" came out. i didn't wait around for him to sign it... i wasn't that much of a groupie. but i do love his writing, and i'm glad we still have that with us.

if you happen to subscribe to the feed for this blog, you may have noticed a couple of very old posts purporting to have been posted on friday. these were posts from 2005 that i edited friday afternoon to remove some sensitive information on behalf of others. they are not current, so please don't get confused.

i'm too lazy to poke around in blogger, but i and many others have had multiple problems with blogger's feeds in the past. importing an old blog into wordpress is a bit of a pain, but i won't be using blogger for any new blogs!

pesach sameach....

i hope all who celebrate it are having a great passover. it's my favorite holiday (in spite of my utter hatred of matzah... go figure). i met some lovely people (family of a friend) at our family's seder, including a 6-month-old baby who was quite entertaining.

here is a little passover fun for you (best for my fellow slightly morbid folks).

in other news, i might be getting that car sooner than i planned. Honda Fit, or Toyota Yaris? they are both so cute... i was set on the Yaris for a long time but now i'm leaning toward the Fit....
