    • I was Huddles the Tiger for the 1989 Cincinnati Bengals. Football fans will remember that as a year that they went to the Super Bowl (against the 49ers). I am happy to take credit for that.
      It was a total fluke, by the way. I don’t know anything about football. My uncle is a friend of someone who worked in the office at the time. Right before the season began (like, they day before) they discovered the guy they hired was too big for the costume. My uncle happened to be there and said, “I have a niece who’s pretty small. Want me to call her?” And that was that.

    • Truly, Madly, Deeply is one of my all-time favorites as well. You can’t get it from Netflix, which is NOT RIGHT.

  10. I, too, wish you were in Tucson right now.
    We could blow up a kiddy pool in the middle of my sandy “yard” and pretend we were at a far shore.
    And make D and J bring us round the clock artichokes, sushi, etc. while debating who we’d most like to make out with: Sayid or Alton Brown.
