it's real! dried ginger!

...is what a packet at the supermarker assures me. contrary to all reports, dried ginger is, in fact, real. also real are our two babies! remember how i mentioned a few weeks ago that we might be getting babies, and then never touched the subject again because i feared that doing so would lessen the likelihood of the arrival of said babies? well, they came in last night...this happy fatso is four-month-old supakit (a.k.a. 'superkid)...


and this spindly character is apila, nearly a month old...

and this is the gecko that got into the pastries...



doesn't HE look territorial! anyway, we have babies now, and sheri and nat and i had a rousing sleep over with them last night...supakit only takes meds once a day, and they're fairly hopeful that he'll work the HIV out of his system (which, apparently, babies can do), but apila is a fitful, mewly thing, and he requires meds at six and noon and six and midnight...so i'm tired and i'm going to sleep, if that's ok.

Babies! Wheee!!! Sometimes while working at Costco I make little children cry because they're scared of me and seperated from their mom. Yeah.

Most of the time their eyes just go big and they don't blink the entire time I pack their buggie.

Also, I was going to ask, do you have that list of books for me yet? If not, what about swing music? I need some swing music.. badly.. got some names/titles for me?

The first thing I thought when I looked at that last picture was "Sick! Who would let a lizard crawl on their scabs? That is some funny looking puss."
