So insanely much better. Finally. Thank you.Update: Still great, but a few things missing:

I and a few others loved the search-to-donate idea when we were at Looksmart a few years ago. Still do, in fact, but we couldn't get the team excited about it. For me personally, I think the mostly-extremely-positive experience I had with action-for-charity at Zeal (using thehungersite) is what drives my enthusiasm for the idea. Finally, there seem to be some alternatives: charity cafe, goodsearch, theenvironmentsite.org, though some efforts (e.g., Ask Jeeves' Katrina support site) seem to have gone offline already. It's a bummer that it's hard to tell what the efficiency of these charitable organizations is.

Been learning a lot about living with babies lately. You ever wonder why all baby stuff is white? We had no idea until we tried to put Yuna into the fancier (and much more expensive) of the two bassinets that we have. It has a striped, brightly colored bumper (for all you non-parents out there, it's a little cushion thing that goes around the inside of the bassinet to keep baby from bumping into the hard parts of the bassinet). Natsuko got this particular bumper because she doesn't want pastels to be overdone in our house. So we tried to put Yuna down in this thing and, as usual, when you lay her down, she briefly opens her eyes to check out her surroundings, making sure she's safe -- when she sees this bumper, she feels like she needs to escape from her swaddling cloth.
Lesson: buy calming colors for very young infants.
