I am now calling for anyone who wishes, to submit photos of yourself while fake-smiling. Should it turn into a contest with prizes, so be it. Only time will tell.

I came upon a certain passage whereupon Prince Myshkin is being introduced to the daughters of Madame Epanchin. I know you don't care about this, but read on. She says,
"...my eldest daughter here, plays the piano or reads or sews; [the middle daughter] paints
landscapes and portraits (and can never finish anything); and [the youngest] sits doing nothing."
Now if you can't see the hilarity and ironic nature of this passage in my relationship to my sisters, you should be sad.
I'm glad that, at least in this small instance, so much of what I read reminds me of something I've seen in real life, and I'm glad it's not the other way around (name that movie).

This is Sufjan Stevens. Isn't he delicious? What's even more delicious is how he sounds. If you haven't heard these songs yet, take a listen:
This song is so lovely and it's about serial killers. Oh, come on. Everyone is obsessed with serial killers whether you admit it or not.
This is his most popular, from my perspective. It was featured in the movie, "Little Miss Sunshine"
His latest album was an instrumental work. Sort of an indie rock opera about the city. It's an enormous achievement, but not that palatable for a lay audience, I would say. It makes great study music.
Anyways....the reason I lay all this out there is that he is going on tour! Biggest news since Beirut came to SLC for the first time ever. Sufjan is coming and I will be there at all costs. November 1st is the date scheduled. Thank you Pitchfork.

I cannot even express how close I am to my little one. His name comes from one of my favorite films: Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. I thought it appropriate. Brooke calls hers Gil for obvious reasons.
But, our family is not complete. We have yet to aquire our long-awaited and heavily anticipated Savannah Cat. His/her name will be Roxanne. "What is a savannah cat," you ask? Oh ho ho, let me just tell you. From a breeder located in Southern Utah:
The Savannah is created from breeding the African Serval male to a domestic Female. This combination has produced a large, friendly, beautiful cat that resembles a small cheetah.
The problem is, they are extremely expensive ($1,000-2,000). Oh, and we aren't allowed to have them in this house we live in. No matter. It is a dream that will soon be realized.
This post is dedicated to our dear cousin, Sarah, who is a lover of cats and has 6 or 7 of them at this time. They are all obese darlings. The smallest suffers from huge balls, stunted growth, and chronic humping. Love.
