ex machina

on being an evil previous homeowner

it's official. if you're an existing homeowner who intends someday to sell your home there are a number of evil things that you can inflict on the next homeowners/renovators. firstly, you're evil if you every wallpaper anything. bonus evil points are awarded if you think that if a little wallpaper glue is good, then a lot must be better. you'll get the ultimate evil award if you dare to paint over wallpaper, especially wallpaper that was laid with obnoxious amounts of glue. secondly, you're evil if you install vinyl tile. be honest, nobody really likes vinyl tile, expecially not the next homeowner who has to remove the tile with the design you thought was pretty cool 15 years ago.

three guesses as to what i've been doing lately. some day i'm hoping that kris and i will get over this perversion we have towards buying 80-plus year-old houses. it's a sickness.

"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.
