babies and weirdness

So Jason and Jeannette Clark had their baby! Christopher William Clark (for the record, this is the second Chris/Cris Clark that I know...although I haven't met him yet...) was born a week ago at a whopping 8 lbs 5 oz... Babies are good.

And I heard from my friend Maryam in Ithaca the other day. We're sporadically in touch, but I just love her and her husband. She's an opera singer struggling with living in central New York and commuting to the City, he's a PhD candidate in German at Cornell. But the best part of her email yesterday described what her brother (who is a magician) is currently doing:

" nabil (her brother) is doing well- he's in saipan performing in a variety show where he does a midget michael jackson routine with another guy who plays the chimp- and no i am not kidding, and yes he is really getting paid (pretty darn well) to do this."

If I had a dollar for every time I heard that, I'd have a dollar.
