2. A random fact about today: Mike is on his way to pick up the boys and me from Colorado (T-minus 6 hours and counting...). We are more than a little excited.
3. A random fact about books: I am reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and am finding it completely fascinating. I seem to have some dim recollection of learning about HeLa cells in high school biology, but science is much more likely to stay with me if there's some sort of human interest connection. I assure you, I won't forget about HeLa cells again.
4. A random fact about my past: When I was a little girl, I thought the two most beautiful names in all the world were Katerina and Teodora. My tastes have since changed. I still think they're pretty names, but I wouldn't give them to my daughters. (Not that I've even had the chance, what with three boys and all...)
