Far be it from me to imply that my child is not the most fascinating, interesting one-year-old in the world.

However: really, Internets? Of all of the videos of V I have put up on YouTube, this one:

is the one that has been viewed many more times (still only 44 views, so it isn't viral or anything, but the ones with more views have been up for months and pretty much have demographics indicating that they were viewed in places where we know people) than the other videos I uploaded at the same time, and by people all over the US, in Chile, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Hong Kong, Mexico, Spain and Thailand?

One amusing note: apparently a Japanese blog has linked to it, and the other links on the blog are mostly to videos of a bunny rabbit. I don't know any more, because my browser won't display the characters (not that I read Japanese, anyway, but with the Internet Tubes at my disposal I might have deciphered some of it).

And rabies, too.

I work in an old building, a converted Lumber Exchange. There is a huge, 10-story atrium in the center. Today, a poor, confused bat got into the atrium. This is apparently better than a car accident--I don't think anyone in the whole building has gotten any work done over the past hour or so. They are all out on the catwalk, watching the bat.

Of course, our office has really big windows looking out on the atrium, so it *looks* like I am getting work done while I watch.

And a birthday, of course

A little bit late, but happy birthday, V!
