Quote of the Day

I just stumbled across a note I made in Maine a week and a half ago:

"Do starfish sleep a little later than people?"

This was Banana's question when she discovered that the starfish we had brought back from Edgewater seemed, um, not to be very responsive despite our efforts to put together a nice little tidal ecosystem on the shore. It was at that point that I realized I had used a basin that probably had decades of bleach residue imbued in the plastic. Oops.

The comment is closely rivaled by tonight's at Sticky Rice, after she had decorated Piko with a tutu and fuschia shoes: "She's so stylish."
