Two things, one of them sad

1. Where are all my parsimonious friends saying, "Are you mad, woman? That much money for a dress?" There are problems with having women friends beyond what I ever suspected. Not that the friendslist men seem to be shouting down the dress I mentioned in the previous entry either.

2. One of my cousins died today, suddenly and unexpectedly. They're still not sure what he died of. Kenny was only in his early/mid 40s, and his youngest daughter is not yet through high school. This is someone I saw about once a month up until I left for college. He was always one of my favorite cousins (well, cousins-in-law, really). He was larger than life, wry and funny, a born story-teller. We had lots of in-joke references to stories Ken had told, because they were worth remembering, not just interesting but also evocative of the people involved.

Dammit anyway.

The past tense is even harder to get a grasp on than usual for a death, here.
