Who am I?

Lost in Translation is addictive! The first verse of "You are my sunshine" comes out thusly:
They are my sun, sun of the mine only. They emit the lucky shutdowns the other way around to me, if the skies ash-gray are leached. They never know, expensive, how much master to him. My sun does not clear to me requests.(11:56 PM) ¶
This last time, we get to the page where the baby is hiding in a flower and the mother is a gardener looking for him. I asked him "Where's the baby" and he pointed to the baby in the flower and said "baby!" and when I asked "where's the mamma?" he pointed at the mother bunny carrying a hoe and said "Ho!"
Velvet Johnson would be proud.(8:19 AM) ¶
New York's Best Espresso? Now I have an intense craving for good espresso. I picked it up on our second trip to Italy in 1999. Prior to that, I only ever had cappuccino which, I later learned, only tourists drink after 11AM. I wonder if I'll have any better luck in Washington, DC... Or the North End of Boston... things to try...(11:51 PM) ¶
ER Act 4: A cliffhanger? Oh whatever. A kisshanger. Huh. Whatever. I have nothing pithy to say about the show after that.
Friends was good, by the way.(11:01 PM) ¶
Oh, Andrew, I agree with you about the best episode. But I also thought the Greene episode about the botched childbirth ("Love's Labor Lost") with Bradley Whitford was their best dramatic episode.(10:30 PM) ¶
Despite all of my instincts, I am watching ER right this minute. I look forward to reading Andrew's deconstruction of this episode.
So far, with the first act over, it's actually somewhat gripping. It feels like good old ER. We'll see how things go...(10:12 PM) ¶
Is there no end? If it seems I've done little but blog op-eds decrying the Bushes lately it's because I stand in utter amazement that he's getting away with all of this. So, Clinton got a blow job and had shaky connections (never proven) to whitewater and he's evil. But this president let his energy policy be written by Enron, exploits 9/11 for both civil-liberties-crushing policies and for his own political gain, an undeclared war (so as to get the spoils of war without the responsibilities of war) on a vague enemy (which he has yet to find), and now this? Wake up America. After this, Clinton is going to go down in history as a President who got caught lying over the least consequential stuff.
Oh, I'm sorry. Was my bleeding heart on my sleeve again? I hate when that happens. Laundry bills, you know.(9:55 PM) ¶

I don't know what we said. But here is his ticked-off look.
We had an amazing sunset tonight after all the storms today.
Finally, a tree in our back yard bloomed.
