Parents kick it

I was holding the baby after she took a bath and she pee'd all over me.

My parents are here to see the baby and they've been having a pretty good time, from what I can tell. Today we went out with my friend Ishikawa who drives a bus and likes to take foreigners on a magical mystery tour of Japan. Often, during the tour, one member of the tour will comment to another in a hushed voice, "I thought we going to the hot springs. What is this I'm eating?" The answer is, "Forgot whatever you thought: you're eating squid."

The baby did really well, we eventually got home, and I got a stunning reference from my Birmingham tutor for the PhD application. I need to keep hopes down.
