To Nerdstar! She might finally be a grown up now that she's 40. (She was about 80 when I met her, then she spent many, many years at 12, then went back to about 80.)
It was also ten years ago we got Ramen dog. Nerdstar had told me every day (really, every day) for about six months that she wanted a dog. She almost got a Palm Pilot for her birthday that year, but nope, we went and got Ramen. I talked her into naming him Ramen as a pre-emptive strike so that our first born human wouldn't be named Ramen!
