This is my family
standing in front of the very red tree in my parents'
backyard from earlier today. I look like a nerd. Except
I'm wearing a really cool shirt that's half-robot, half
the number 48. It was meant for little boys. Thus, it
is kind of too small. My family are all very brightly
colored, except for Mom, but the black part of my shirt
ties in with the black of hers, and the yellow of Chris's
shirt ties in with the yellow of Dad's, creating a lovely
color composition all around. Okay, I was just going
to draw a green hat on my dad's head to match my shirt,
but that would ruin the charm.
So yesterday I went to my aunt's wedding. I got drunk,
took a bunch of photos, found out where my grandfather
grew up, discussed Robert Downey, Jr.'s incredible acting
ability with a couple of relatives, heard about how
was almost in one of those lame Levi's ads where they
photograph musicians standing on balconies looking pensive,
graciously received compliments on my brown dress, and
After our spot-on mimickry of the way our parents shake
their groove things, my brother and I tore up the floor
with our crazy impromptu routines. Most guests were
amused. Maybe I can get hold of my cousin's video of
us dancing and post it. Then you could be amused, too.
