My bunk mate, Bella #cat. She has a hard time holding her licker.

The golden girls. Jenni, the red one, is Dorothy, the eldest and still sassy. Nellie, in the middle is Rose, because she has lived a sheltered life in the country. And Snowy is Blanche, because, well, she’s gotten around.

She’s gonna get it…eventually…after she takes a rest. She’s gonna get it…eventually…after she takes a rest. She’s gonna get it…eventually…after she takes a rest. She’s gonna get it…eventually…after she takes a rest. She’s gonna get it…eventually…after she takes a rest.

She’s gonna get it…eventually…after she takes a rest.

I didn’t start the fire, or did I?

At 1:00 a.m., I was luckily awoken by the sound of the ignitor on the gas stove.

Latin American author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1982, died Thursday. He was 87. Garcia Marquez, the master of a style known as magic realism, was and remains Latin America’s best-known writer.

His novels were filled with miraculous and enchanting events and characters; love and madness; wars, politics, dreams and death. And everything he had written, Garcia Marquez once said, he knew or heard before he was 8 years old.

Chilean novelist Ariel Dorfman says Marquez’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech was one of the author’s most important messages to the world.

"Garcia Marquez is speaking about all the people who are marginal to history, who have not had a voice," Dorfman says. "He gives a voice to all those who died. He gives a voice to all those who are not born yet. He gives a voice to Latin America."
