Now here’s some exciting news: our xanga homegirls Chanthaboune and Alissa are BOTH on the front page at myzip, where probably no one even realizes the connection between them — namely, that Canadian National brought myzip into the xanga neighborhood and they jumped on the bandwagon. I think it is possible that Rampaige has also joined the band, though that may not be the case. In any case, I was glad to see that my neighboring (and much more exciting) zipcode now has a blogger, so I won’t be tempted to write about them.

I have to get out early this morning, so I will leave you with that thrill.

No, wait — if you actually came here for family news, you ought to know that #1 daughter’s car suffered serious hail damage, including a broken windshield, and that #2 daughter has a good shot at a seriously exciting job. In fact, I am only restraining myself from applying for it because she wants it. Oh, and I don’t live in that state.
