My favorite new show on Comedy Central is Insomniac, in which comedian Dave Attell stays up all night, each time in a different city, just wandering around (with a cameraman) looking for spontaneous fun in the wee small hours on the night. He meets quite a parade of wacky late night characters, and shows us what various places around town are like when most of the world is sleeping. As one who routinely stays up until dawn, this is my kind of show.

What's New?

What's Going On? A Wedding, a War, and an Ear Infection
It's been an uneven week for us. We had a good weekend... I had a great time at my 20 year high school reunion, after which I drove through the night to be with Kristin and Alison at the wedding of Suzyn and Alvaro in New York City. Alison was a bridesmaid, having first met Suzyn back in college, as was Petra, who unfortunately is totally blocked by Suzyn in this picture I took at the ceremony, which was held in Central Park. (It was hard for me to get very close, and I'm still learning to use this new camera I just got.) It was a lovely wedding... best wishes to you Suzyn and Alvaro!

Here's another picture I took at the wedding, on the way down the street to the reception hall, of Alison clowning around with her bouquet. Since Alison works in a flower shop, she was drafted at the last minute to help with the flower arrangements... aren't they lovely?

Unfortunately, right after returning from New York, Kristin came down with an incapacitatingly painful ear infection. As if such a thing weren't bad enough, her doctor misdiagnosed her outer ear infection as an inner ear infection, which means the medications he'd prescribed didn't help at all. Finally, late last night, when the pain got worse instead of better, we took her to the emergency room where she was re-diagnosed and given several new drugs to try. She's continuing to suffer greatly, but I think she's finally turned the corner. Hopefully she'll be back on her feet soon.

Plus of course, we started bombing Afghanistan this week. While most of the nation seems gung ho about this, we just find the whole thing terribly depressing. Ironically, I was visiting the Imagine circle (a John Lennon memorial in the park near the site of his murder) just as we were beginning our bombing campaign.


AndyHave a great fall!

Thought Residue
Judy's surgery went very well and she seems to be on track for a speedy recovery. It'll be awhile before they can be sure that they got the whole tumor, but they are quite optimistic and everything seems to be going as well as can be expected under the circumstances.
Ikea has started building a new store, just up the street from us! (Ikea is totally our favorite furniture store, but currently we have to drive for an hour to get to one.)
There are times when it's actually frustrating for a TV show *not* to have a commercial break for a really long time. (Similarly, there are times when I'd really like to be stopped by a red light, which of course is when the lights all turn green.)
