In better news

Eric and I are going to see Vandana Shiva speaking tonight. It's much more "my" kind of thing than his, but he's gamely giving it a try.

I'm so excited I can hardly stand myself. I heard her speak on the radio, and she impressed me as one of those shining intellects whom it's just a treat to watch in action -- flashing intelligence brought to bear on problems that mean a lot to me.

Plus, we're leaving the kids with Miguel. Yippeee!

That sounds very exciting. Our library doesn't have her book, dammit.

Ooh, very cool!

Sigh. I need a Miguel.

Everyone needs a Miguel.

But, to be fair, I didn't have one until Thing 4 was 1. . . I wish I had started earlier.
