ex machina

who says those wacky behaviorists weren't on to something after all. .

it only takes one encounter with an earwig crawling up your leg while you're drying off in the shower for you to associate "drying off in the shower" with "something crawling up my leg", no matter how many times you say to yourself, "there's no earwig today. there is no earwig today." it's true - go ahead, try it.

and i'm not even overly bothered by earwigs, even though i hear it's true that they can indeed find a cozy place to nest in your ear:
"Britta Frey, from Berlin, had been kept awake by a scratching noise, but couldn't work out from where it came.

Doctors washed out her ear and the live earwig appeared. Her hearing hasn't been damaged."

"She said: "Every time I turned round it seemed to be coming from somewhere else. It was really creepy. I went back to bed but could not sleep a wink because of the scratching."

"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.
