random details, you want the random details.
i have a minor cold, and louisa has a major cold, but that is ay-oh-kay, because we have INCREDIBLES KLEENEX. after we finish up the actual tissues we're going to have to have a fight about who gets to put the box on her wall.
and yes, i realize that i still haven't written about the state of the union, or about bush's budget proposal which i read in some detail yesterday morning, or about insurgents in iraq, or about the sharon-abbas meeting, or about anything else which might remotely qualify me as an intelligent person.
on the other hand, i've read two three-hundred-page books and several articles and written two papers since saturday, so i forgive me.
