I feel asleep on the pool cover last night and was roused from my sleep by a 9-year-old asking me how to use earrings to kill somebody and a 2-year old bellowing "YOU'RE FUNNY!" and promptly climbing on top of my stomach to play.

Welcome to the Lim-Chua family reunion! Where my mother and her 7 sisters, her mother, uncle, sister-in-law, their son, his wife, and everybody's kids crowd into our house and necessitate at least a half-hour wait to use any bathroom - and we have four bathrooms. We're from all over; Canada, Seattle, Boston, Chicago, Manila, Shanghai. Everyone likes food.

I'll be back at Olin on Monday.
