i thought maybe it was time to introduce you to the people who appear, directly or indirectly, in my posts. this is not an exhaustive introduction, just a summary to light the way:
- the lovely PB: human, male, partner, friend, adviser, very hot.
- her highness: canine, female, partner in my life for the last 11 years, increasingly old but spry, but very smelly.
- the mother: self-explanatory, lives in tropical country.
- the father: same as above, married to the mother
- the sister: younger than i by 3 years and 2 months, lives on other side of ocean, too far from me.
- planet, also referred to as C, or CF, or CvH: best friend since 1984. died of breast cancer on feb 10, 2007. i turn 40 in 2 months, but feb 10, 2007 was the actual first day of the rest of my life.
- the book: inanimate, gender neutral, excessively time-consuming, occasionally really interesting, mostly overdue and almost finished
- recipes (see new page above): my alter ego wants to be a chef
