Dear PDD Readers, I have to keep this short today because I am still finishing a paper for my graduate class. It is entitled "Adoption and Sartre's Notion of Otherness." In it I explore my relationship with my adopted sister and toy with the idea that society always wanted our family to "explain" her, even though she is just as American as anyone else, being a naturalized citizen of Chinese descent. In researching the paper I have immersed myself in the writings of sociologists, psychologists, and literary critics so that I might develop a most educated opinion.
So my brain is just about fried. :)
However, in honor of our mystery blog, I'll tell you a funny story. My dad sent me an e-mail entitled "Polar Bear Attack in North Manitoba." Now, my father has been known to send me some rather shocking e-mails, some of which are traffic fatalities captured by security cameras (which he sends as a way of telling me to be careful at the wheel. Scared straight, and all that).
Needless to say, I was very fearful about the Polar Bear e-mail; yet, being a mystery SOLVER, I wanted to open it. I did, and saw this:
Sorry, but I can't attribute these photos to anything but an unsigned e-mail that is getting passed around. Cute though, aren't they?
Okay, back to the books. :)
