go here -- and here -- and here too

One of the pleasures of blogging like this is the ability to send you other places. So here goes:

For an antidote to my melancholy bird story, Otto tells the hysterical tale of a demented but determined squirrel.

Jessie went down to City Hall (in Cambridge, I assume) last night to watch a wonderful historic moment. Who believed it would happen this fast?

Someone named Carol wrote in to Neil Gaiman with some of the best advice for aspiring writers I've read in a while. (Note: the link to the entry doesn't work, so scroll down to the bottom of this archive page. It's the second part of the May 9th entry.)

Tiny Coconut has her own valuable perspective to add to my "Don't let your kids grow up to be screenwriters" rant from the other day.

Eve summed up how I often feel. Super-mom? Yeah, right.

Allison's thinking about naming her baby French Fry.

And finally, congratulations to Laura, who may have just bought a house (rather close to my in-laws, actually). Apartment 11D no longer? I remember that panic/giddy/shock/panic feeling extremely well. Three years ago last month that was us. Best decision we ever made. Not our perfect dream home (well, location), but crucial for all kinds of reasons. No regrets here. Good luck with it, Laura.

More of my own words tomorrow night. Till then, enjoy other people's.

This was fun. My first blog jog.

thanks so much, Tamar. Enormous amounts of panic/giddy/shock/panic.
