You've got questions, I've got answers:

The books I mentioned the other day were, in order, THE DOGS OF BABEL, by Carolyn Parkhurst, THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME, by Mark Haddon, WHAT WAS SHE THINKING? NOTES ON A SCANDAL by Zoe Heller (just nominated today for the Booker Prize!), MIDDLESEX by Jeffrey Eugenides and THE MAMMOTH CHEESE by Sheri Holman.

I've also recently dug SEXUAL HEALING by Jill Nelson, GIRL COOK by Hannah McCouch, DRY by Augusten Burroughs, and far too many Sandra Boynton books to count (our current fave: BUT NOT THE HIPPOPOTAMUS).

In other Lucy news, just in time for the hurricane, we are now the proud and slightly overwhelmed owners of an Evenflo Portable Fun UltraSaucer -- one of those round plastic doughnut-shaped with a ten different toys arrayed around its outer edge and a seat in the middle so Baby can spin around and bounce and enjoy the various amusements. It's more commonly known in my neighborhood as "mother's little helper" -- as in, stick your baby in one of these babies and you can finally go take a shower.

To think, my Mom's generation had Librium. We've got the Evenflo Portable Fun UltraSaucer. Yes, I am bitter.

But I'm now amusing myself by reading the Saucer's instructions and safety warnings.

DO NOT allow child to sleep in saucer. (Well, there goes that plan).

NEVER use as a flotation device. (Ditto.)

NEVER use as a sled.

ALWAYS remove baby from UltraSaucer before folding.
