i woke up this morning in my own bed with a weird rash on both of my arms. this is either a symptom of mexico or else the strangers who apparently slept in my bed while i was gone.

i have a bunch of stuff to do, you know, RIGHT NOW. one of those things is call my mom and see if she can cure my rash over the phone. the other is to find some clothes to wear. but in the mean time here are some early release mexico pictures. all the best pictures were taken by other people though. maybe i’ll have some of those before too long.

[my cousin’s three-year-old took this picture]

[this is my cousin ahren as a screen saver. the video is better.]

[my cousin erica and her littlest kid.]

[my cousin ethan, unable to keep his eyes open apparently. not that i’m doing such a great job either.]

not pictured: all the other kids (i’m not sure if i’m allowed to put pictures of them on the internet because of the bad guys), my brother, my parents, my aunt and uncle, and assorted partners and other people. i didn’t take that many pictures.
