Darn. At my wedding, Evan and Dave (joint best man) gave a brilliant speech that was simultaneously a roasting, and heartfelt and lovely. But I distinctly remember the call-response form: Evan said “Andrew was the first person I knew to start a weblog” and Dave added “…that doesn’t get updated for months at a time.”
While the sentiment is accurate (“Shellsyed” means “to have an ambitious project about which a person talks for months and months but thereafter is never heard from again”), June was the first month in the history of this blog I haven’t written *something* at least.
Anyway, I’ve been working on multiple projects, including one that I most definitely cannot talk about, and it’s all been very exciting but a little tiring.
Also, Jade & Clara have been extra cute. Clara’s vocabulary has increased to include “nana” for banana, “daddy!”, “mama”, “bubble!”, “bapple”, “‘loon” for balloon, and a rough approximation of “yong tsa gut!”, meaning “spear with fork” in Cantonese which she uses whenever she spears a piece of apple to eat it. She also dearly loves to sing the first few bars of “Let It Go”, as does Jade. Jade’s totally into her music lessons, and sings and dances everywhere.
