all I ever wanted was to pick fleas off my next of kin

One bonus of having a Resident Offspring in university is the opportunity for vicarious learning. The linguistics course this semester sounds pretty intriguing, like a course I wouldn't mind taking if I could teleport myself back a few decades.

During last night's Skype session, the RO educated me about Nim Chimpsky - the chimp which was taught American sign language. We both agreed that it was a pretty fierce name.

cute chimp, awful song

I avoided the awful song, as I can't turn on my speakers at work. Clip was still enjoyable though.

What would we do without Skype? ;)

On mute was probably the best way to watch that clip, Al.
