    Bigglassesgirl is an auntie!  Confetti all around!  It was last night that the little miss was born, which means it’s about time I start tracking down gifts that I can use as instruments for passing Plata Card on my wisdom.  The plan: a continuous barrage of presents that somehow allow for the little pea’s mind to absorb and appreciate, from an early age, the importance of: Dostoyevsky, Plato, vinyl […]
