Our blog has been suffering from some pressure these past few days.
Now that most of the Kenji-in-the-tutu scare has died down, and
hopefully we don't have sneaky and possibly distantly related people
poking into our blog (NOT THAT I MIND!!! It's just that...well...I'm
using you as an excuse for having not updated anything), I've decided
that now is the time to resume posting.
Truth is, I really haven't had much to post about. I've been busy
witnessing (almost every day, aside from my meager school efforts),
and thinking sentimental thoughts about people who are having
birthdays (Jeesus there are tons of Capricorns!!!) and people who are
leaving our home...and people whose home I may join in the near
future. So I've been full of thoughts, and full of things to do to
push those thoughts onto the backburner. So I've been pretty stacked.
Yes, I like sounding as though I am a busy person. If you want to
tease me, check with my secretary as to my slow hours.

I would like to take the time to mention my brother Mark, also married
to Elaina (which is only among many wonderful things he managed to do
in his lifetime), whose birthday was on January the 8th.
I find that I have taken this fellow quite forgranted over the years
of my short life. He, and I know he knows this already, is probably
the brother whom I get along with the least. Thing is, I just don't
get along with nice, moderate people. I get along with evil extremists
who are trying to take over the earth (and who curse in their sleep.
KIDDING KIDDING!!!). Thus, Mark is just the sort that would rub me the
wrong way with his gallantry. He's always trying to clean stuff and
make me look bad. He's always telling me I haven't done my JJT
properly, and he's always telling on me to my parents for something or
other. Mostly stuff that I'm glad he tells on me for, but that's
beside the point.
Basically, he's a good guy, and he seems to be a good husband (I'm
leaving room there, in case Elaina wants to say something...er) and in
my humble opinion, he's a wonderful father. He's one of those guys
that does these little kind deeds...just little ones. He's sacrificial
and likes to prefer the bigger purpose--kind of like the happiness of
two other people as opposed to his own, which is actually pretty good
perspective. (That can be explained by the trivia fact that Mark is
the only one in the family who enjoys math above all other subjects.)
Anyway. I feel honored to be related to such a wonderful fellow.
