    Apparissus came back from Japan on the 4th of
    July. It was great. I hadn't seen the boy in
    three weeks, and previous to that he'd been in
    California and various other places that were not
    here. He was in town for a little more than 24
    hours. He's now off to Miami to show support for
    sick relatives. I feel for him actually. He told
    me how tired of moving around he is. He's been
    living out of a suitcase since right after school
    got out.

    Jess moved out last weekend. She's doing things
    that are important to her, and I still see her
    every day... But it's not the same of course.

    I've never slept in an empty house for more than a
    couple days at a time, and that was mostly the
    house where I grew up. Empty apartments don't count.

    We cancelled our trip to vegas last night. No
    DEFCON this year. I really can't afford it, and
    App has too many places to be simultaniously
    already. I really enjoyed seeing him while he was
    here though. He had so many stories to tell. He
    only had time to tell a very small portion of them.

    But I am getting out of town this weekend. I'll
    be in Glacier Park with my dad-family. I haven't
    seen my little half-brother in so long. It'll be
    wonderful. He just turned 5.

    5 is the best age. I envy you.

    Glacier Park is gorgeous.I envy you your trip.
    That is my type of terrain.
    I'm sure you know not to attempt to enter the ice caves at the base of the glaciers.I always had to wrestle with myself to stay clear.It just looks so magical in there.

    Have a great time!

    I did indeed have a wonderful time. The Going To
    The Sun Road is fantastic.

    I just got back about 15 minutes ago, and a lady
    came to my door wanting to buy my Rabbit. I told
    her that I bought it on ebay for a song and her
    jaw dropped. But it's mine. I like my car.

    It's damn hot right now. It was so marvelously
    cool and beautiful in Glacier...

    Did your little brother have a good time?

By Spider on Monday, July 9, 2001 - 09:15 am:

    I wish I had a little brother who was actually little. I sat next to a little boy, about 7, on the train last week -- he had red hair and freckles and a big round head. So cute. I wanted to take him home with me.

    Little kids rule... Their at the age where, everyting is so simple (or so we see it now) in an overly complex manor. I mean look at it, things like playing games, running around in the yard with friends, video games, books, and school are extreamly complex things in your life at that age, hell eating is something that takes up way too much damn time.

    But as we look back on it as adults we only wish we could go back to the days of simpler living, such as those of being 5 again.

    Nick had a great time. He had a great time
    watching the trains, and I gave him his birthday
    present. He got a little tired of the drive
    across the Going To The Sun Highway, but overall,
    he had a marvelous time. Except when I won at
    Shutes and Ladders. I was tremendously lucky, and
    he hates to lose.

    although i didn't find childhood simple or easy or nice, i do wish i could go back to when things were new. When tastes were new.
    When i hadn't had 1000 chocolate easter eggs or pizzas or ice cream flavours and i didn't expect to know exactly what all these things would taste like before i ate them.

    kids are fun when they let you join their games.

    some kids are fearful and exclusive and it's strange.
    they shouldn't have to be.
