ex machina

nothing special, just the family cove! perhaps you've quietly snickered to yourself while thinking, "snowdeal?! what kind of word is that?"

weeeeelll, mr. smarty pants, i'll bet you don't have a cove named after you. and on the craggy coast of south thomaston maine. so beat that. i didn't know the family had a cove. i don't know the family history very well, but i do know there's a few of us in that area of maine. i'm from the jonesboro maine snowdeals. we didn't get a cove, but we did see fit to name a street "snowdeal lane". so i guess there's a pattern. my ancestors claimed coves and streets, while i stake out virtual spaces.

and no, i don't really know where the family name came from. i think the going theory is that it's a derivative of the germanic 'Schnaudiehl', which reminds me of something that might be breaded, deap fried and served with several pints of ale.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
