An Irish Retraction

The Plus Side: I have very cool grandparents. In fact, all four of them read my blog. How many grandparents of people my age use the internet, let alone read their grandson's blog?

The Negative Side: When one blogs about one's family, one's grandparents will read one's posts about one's family history, and one's possible inaccuracies will be pointed out, to one. Suffice it to say, there is an Irish branch of my family. Protestant Irish, of course, but Irish nevertheless. In fact, when my grandparents moved to Montreal in the sixties, the Canadian immigration people listed my grandmother as "Irish" because of her maiden name. So there you have it.

I feel a little bit like George Allen.

My grandmother reads my blog too, which is why I very carefully f-lock any entries that have to do with spending money, drinking, or having any kind of fun not related to my thesis.

If my grandparents were still alive, I'd give them my blog information. You both are extremely lucky to have that choice.
