Alice just snuggled up on me, looking a little wistful and a little headachey and I picked up Your Inner Fish and started reading the first chapter. With commentary. Shubin is clearly writing for a non-scientific peoples, so I have rather a lot of commentary when he gets too hand-wavey, but on the whole this is a happy book. Partway through the chapter Aerin looks up and says "I got Harry Potter" Alice says "I did too. And some of The Hobbit" 

Alice recognized two names in the first chapter: Farish Jenkins and Steve Gatesy. She's apparently watched the NOVA episode on the four winged dinosaur often enough that the participants feel like friends to her. Which is pretty cool.

poor kid, hacking and wheezing
as she watches Mythbusters

her sister notes
"you're flat when you're sick"
and she is, stretched out on the couch
this child who is usually doing two things at once
drawing and thinking,
homework and Nova,
making mammoths and totoros
reduced to a single dimension by misery
cheered only by the thought
of missing another day of school
