in a perfect world of yancies: She Said What?

She Said What?

So, it's been a while; how about I get right to some photos?

Playing the Akita version of Monopoly over the holidays.

Losing to my mom at the Akita version of Monopoly over the holidays.

Squinting in Myrtle Edwards park along Puget Sound recently.

Squinting? Yes--look how sunny it was! Had a solid week of that here. So how do you like that?

(No caption needed.)

At the Sonics game the other day. We got to see them snap a 14-game losing streak by beating the NBA champion Spurs with last-minute heroics. Awesome.

Thanks again to Andrew, the wonderful KU alum who gave us the tickets!

She may be named Tina, but she'll always be Tiny to me.

Where's this, you ask? At the flagship REI store here in town. Not pictured: mountain-bike trails for testing bikes; climbing wall; hiking paths. . . . What did we get? Not a thing.

And here's something as odd as you're likely ever to see:

That's James (or is it Jamie) Sido, cheering for Mizzou as they beat Kansas State.

Mom and Merrica over the holidays: cute, no?

Oh, the title of this post?
Well, just as I was reveling in my success as a letter-writer to the Times, I noticed that Korea-based Yonhap News was covering the story. Here's an excerpt:
"[My name here] of Seattle argued there were more important things than lower prices and said she was willing to buy shampoo from a local pharmacy, even if it was more expensive than buying through the Internet or elsewhere."

Sigh. Guess a little humility never hurt anyone . . .

But speaking of the Times, did you see Krugman's column about John Edwards? (I know one of you did, I guess.) Anyway, I couldn't agree more.
"So John Edwards has dropped out of the race for the presidency. By normal political standards, his campaign fell short.

But Mr. Edwards, far more than is usual in modern politics, ran a campaign based on ideas. And even as his personal quest for the White House faltered, his ideas triumphed: both candidates left standing are, to a large extent, running on the platform Mr. Edwards built."

  1. Send some of that sunshine our way. This is the worst winter I can ever remember, anywhere!

    Had to chuckle over the Yonhap article. But I'm entitled, since I receive a lot of junk mail addressed to Mr. Chris.
