So, there was a hurricane (which the BG charmingly kept calling a "candy cane"). But I'm so used to the late summer thunderstorms in DC, and Irene didn't have a whole lot of thunder and lightning (I guess maybe hurricanes don't?), so it was kinda anticlimactic. (Also, we are fortunate enough to live in a part of town where the power lines are all underground.)

In other news, Neil Gaiman and Armistead Maupin had a beautiful Twitter conversation:

NG: Oh bloody hell. That's an actual cock crowing outside the window as I try to get to sleep. #welcometothecountryside
AM: @neilhimself Some of us enjoy an actual cock at bedtime ;)
NG: @ArmisteadMaupin I think you need this: instantrimshot.com
AM: @neilhimself I will NOT make a rim pun, I will NOT make a rim pun ...
NG: @ArmisteadMaupin I love and miss you (as does Amanda), and I am proud of you for not making a rim pun.

Finally, the BG started real, live public school on Friday (I know!). Her teacher seems awesome so far -- she has a real knack for putting kids at ease. Also, she said the BG is "a joy." ::beams with pride:: (Also also, she said the BG is "a talker." Ahem. Score one for nurture.)
