» My cousin Pluto on my mother's side visits the Bay Area this week with his five-year-old son Ethan.

» My brother resolved to be a vegetarian from New Year's Day forth. Considering his favorite food is steak, I give him a week.

Amazing what you can learn at a family dinner.

Apparently, my cousin Pluto named his son after Ethan Hunt, Tom Cruise's character in the Mission: Impossible films.

Also, turns out my brother resolved to be a VEGAN for 40 days. He claims that a friend bet him $10 that he couldn't last 40 days on a vegan diet.

Ten bucks.
