On missing one's sister; or, the 21st Century Grand Tour

My little sister and her boyfriend left on their round-the-world trip today. I spoke to a teary sister at lunchtime, while she was waiting to get on her plane to Mexico City. I'm going to miss her while she's travelling for the next six months or so. Sniff.

One of the positive aspects of this is that I have a reason to be on Facebook now: it's one of her chosen communication methods. If you're reading this and you have a Facebook profile, look for me: I'm not the only Michael Stead on there, but I'm definitely the only one who looks like me and I *think* I'm the only one who's a librarian.
