1. It's been a horrible morning. I put Alec in his highchair to give him some lunch and he starts grizzling -- events have upset him, too. "Alec, give me a break," I tell him, and put my head on the tray. He shuts his mouth, smiles and makes a grab for my glasses, which makes me laugh.

3. When I come to thank Wynn Anne for her favicon, I tell her that this is one of those times when things are terrible, but something lovely pings out of this blog. I know she herself made the icon as a kind gesture to a near stranger, but what I mean is, she did me a kindness in response 3BT. It's one of those times when I'm very glad I keep it up.
