Small surprises.

Well, I had a nice little bit of commentary ready to go for this evening, and then I decided to put it down and go do some other stuff for a while. I went to see X-Men with friends, and then chatted with the crew (tonight: Jeff, Katharine, Jessica, and Brian) over at the wondergeeks' apartment.

Then I came home and checked my email. Discovered that my sister's getting married in September. Needless to say, this is a bit of a surprise. She and her husband Jackie divorced in December of last year or January of this year—I don't know when the divorce became final. I didn't know that she was dating someone seriously. I now know that his name is Carl, but I don't know a last name.

*sigh* I hope she's doing what's right for her in the long haul. She and I aren't close [not by ANY stretch of the imagination] but she's the only sister I've got, and I don't want to see her hurt. Somewhat ironic, since I've pretty much quietly withdrawn from my family's life after moving to Alabama.

I will ponder the implications of this and write more tomorrow.
