  2. I decided that I won’t blog this photo b/c my daughter’s in it, but I thought you’d appreciate the Cardboard Origami Robotto Installation at the Mediatheque building in Sendai, Japan, depicted in it! Now do you see why I mentioned your doing a Fulbright in Japan on MH?

  3. Sean: Sweet! Yoinked for LJ icon purposes.

    Bruce: SO CUTE! And the kids are cute too. 🙂

  4. Regina: That is fantastic! All robots should have beards and slightly too short brown slacks.
