Welcome to my blog. I write about fitting in, sticking out, and missing the motherland as a serial foreigner.

6/6 Tag (AKA NaBloPoMo and/or lack of sleep are killing me slowly but surely)

Camille is my best friend today because she tagged me to post the sixth picture in the sixth folder on my computer. I don't always do tags but this is perfect for day 20 of 30 of NaBloPoMo. What a nice little break from actually thinking up something by myself.

"The sixth picture in the sixth folder on my computer." I don't know if she meant, literally, "My Computer," or just on my computer. Either way, I did the sixth folder in My Pictures, because that's where, you know, my pictures are.


This is Miriam at the airport when we were waiting for our flight to Middlebury via Portland back in May. In her tradition of getting injured the day of major plane flights, she had whacked her eye on the coffee table that afternoon. Thus the lovely owie.

I'm going to tag my fellow NaBloPoMo-ers to give them an easy day if they want it: Chris (yes, Chris is a man. Have you noticed that my male readers, who I've always had, contrary to Jeremy's assertions that this is a girly blog, are finally coming out of the woodwork?), Nancy, Kristen, and Jen. Did I miss anyone?

It's almost 2am now and I think Magdalena has finally gone back to sleep. The ghetto bird is circling and so I think it's time for me to go back to sleep, too. Flashback Friday is tomorrow and it looks like we'll be remembering the time a seizure-woozy brother of mine did some serious gambling. Until then!

Flashback Friday: Casino Royale, Alaska style
