A Shout-Out to the Geek in the Basement

My friend Chris's (aka the Queen-a Athena) son, affectionately known as "the geek in the basement," is somewhat of a renaissance man--which is especially nifty since he hasn't graduated from high school yet. Anyway, he kindly cleared up the tabula rasa mystery from yesterday. The plural of tabula rasa is :::drumroll::: tabulae rasae.

I can only hope that my girls show half of his intellectual curiosity when they hit high school. I'm thinking this is the same son of Chris's who was fascinated with the DMZ between North and South Korea (I sent him pictures.)--at an age where most of his peers probably have no clue what a DMZ is or that one exists between North and South Korea, which are probably located somewhere in Europe. So, you go, geek in the basement. I think you're awesome.

LOL, Tracy, and you thought YOUR head was going to explode? Wait until Josh reads this post. He'll swell up to triple head size. We won't be able to live with him!

And yes, he's the one who wanted to know about the DMZ zone. The other boys aren't into political stuff, though they have their own talents. Dan is busy trying to learn every string instrument known to man (and his 8th grade orchestra is playing a piece he composed at their final concert), and Noah is busy discovering the worlds of all his favorite books.

And then, of course, there's HRH, the Quuen of All She Surveys ...

Tell Dan I'm coming to find him so he can teach me the cello. I've always wanted to play the cello. Too cool about COMPOSING A PIECE FOR THE ORCHESTRA. Damn. That's mighty impressive. I bet Noah and HRH are equally gifted, and your stories about HRH are always a crack-up.
