Yeah that's right. I'm the short one.

I am often shocked at how lucky I am to have the person whose life is the most closely woven with my own also be the person I love the most.

For the first time I was able to see my little sister for the incredible woman that she is.
We talked and walked and pretended to visit Nottingham while really we were visiting each other.

We live oceans and worlds apart. Sometimes I think we couldn’t be any different. But I can see my childhood mirrored in her face. She brings me to my knees with laughter with a simple glance and forces tears from my eyes with a single word. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

We were going to give you a photographic rendition of the song “I love my Sister” made popular by the Barney show, but we became preoccupied with father issues, pissing on corporate billboards, flirting with scientists and just never got around to it.



For this weeks roundtable, Head over to Sereena X and join in on her plea for comments. Get a cold drink and saddle up. Because as much as we like the sound of our own voices, we'd like to hear from you.

Claire is da coolest. You two are so cute.

So did you guys actually piss on corporate billboards? Which ones?

I love the description of your relationship with your sister. Really touching. :-)

Can I just say that I am a little sister, and I don't think any of my five older siblings has ever come close to saying anything half as beautiful as what you said about your sis. It's neat to hear how fortunate you feel, but she's obviously very lucky, too.
