The Wise Wizards

Dear Amsterdam

Dear Amsterdam,

Why are you always browsing my image gallery? It seems like half the time I hunt down the IPA of someone on my CG image gallery, it’s you! All I can say is someone served by the “RIPE Network Coordination Centre” seems to be spending a lot of time browsing.

Instead of snooping around my gallery all the time, why don’t you send me an e-mail? Maybe we could go out for hot chocolate and talk. Don’t by shy Amsterdam, it seems we have a lot in common!


Adoption: postlude

Posted in Children by Ziggy Wednesday April 6, 2011 at 14:49

Almost exactly four years ago I posted some updates about the adoption of my brother and sister, Amos and Linda. They had just arrived in the US, and could barely speak english. They were shy, exuberant, jet lagged, and a bit frightened.

Today they are in school, learning martial arts, dancing, playing music, and laughing like crazy (seriously, like crazy people). It’s been a short four years, and I’m glad to say they are a part of the family in more than just legal status. I speak of Amos and Linda as “they” because it is difficult to separate them. They usually spend their days around each other, go to school together, play the same games, and tell the other what to do constantly. This last is usually because they have rather different views of life. (more…)
