I spent last weekend in Jefferson City, MO with a whole bunch of my relatives; some of them I knew immediately, whilst others required a 30 minute conversation (including at least one visit to wikipedia) to determine how exactly we are related and what such a relation is properly called.  Turns out, I do indeed have a second cousin once-removed, and her name is Lily.  She’s probably the coolest 11 year old I know.

It was a grand weekend, full of all the traditional activities that all normal families do when they congregate – lots of eating, story telling, game playing, an excursion to the testicle festival and chatting about life.


ian = cousin
