This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation.
When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

Non gigantic, non child bride news!

This is a picture of my niece Holly Smith and her longtime boyfriend Cleavon Smith. Cleavon teaches English at some of the same schools where I teach math. He recently popped the question, and Holly of course said yes.

Yay, true love!

Cleavon is only a little bit older than Holly, and slightly taller than her, though she is very close to six foot tall. Six foot tall and cute as a bug's ear is tough trick to pull off, but Holly does so, and very nicely indeed.


Here is my sister (and Holly's mom) Jenny, birthday girl Holly and some large disturbed person who walked in off the street and no one had the gumption to upbraid, he was having such a good time.

"Is he with you?" someone would ask their table neighbor.

"No, I thought he was your friend."

The evening ended without incident and the authorities were not called in.

Will she keep her maiden name? Or hyphenate? She'll sound like a stutterer. Smith-smith.

I like it.

In a few years you'll have even more adorable babies to blog about. Oh, there it is. They just got engaged and I'm pushing the babies.

It's just that he & she are as d says 'hawt'.

It is among my avuncular duties to consider my nieces, regardless of their obvious hawtness, as reallllly cute. I observe this rule stringently.

As to the probability of really cute babies from the future Mr. and Mrs. Smith, I want to add no undue pressure.

But that baby is gonna be really cute.

Like, duh!
