I reached a new level of nerdom today. hutchie and I went to a night lecture given by a theoretical physicist and laughed at the astronomy jokes he made. here is what I learned: one, it is no longer politically correct to say 'dwarf stars'. call them mass challenged. and two, gravity is only a theory. the next time you find yourself at the top of a cliff, keep that in mind.
then we came home and invented marshmellow pancakes - which, by the way, are fantastic, especially when eaten with maple syrup and your fingers.
my brother is seventeen today. I miss the little booger with the wrap-around-the-ear glasses who used to hug everyone he met and wake me up at four in the morning to read to him. but I love the older version too. tie your little brother up in a sack. happy birthday, geoff!
