“Du”–my best friend & co-author
“the book”–current writing project by famous Simpsonologists, Du & Dr. Karma

“the boy”–my teenager
“book club”–my weekly group of book lovers and friends. Formally, we are the Margaret Atwood Book Club of Davis (as made famous in the credits of the film, Julie, Julie), though we read other authors, too.
“Isis,” “Osiris,” “Mahahes”–the cats
“The Monkey”–the monkey
