Tiny little baby brother Tim is currently stationed in Japan. He is quite bored. I miss him.  As he is 16 hours ahead, finding a time when we can get on the phone has been quite arduous and requires a lot of math. All of this to say, I have invented a new verb which is, of course, FaceTimming, v: when you FaceTime with Tim. There is also, of course, FaceTimmying, which is when you FaceTime with Tim, but he is 8 years old. This is not to be confusing with FaceTimothying, which is when you FaceTime with Tim regarding something official or biblical.

of note

Big brother Pete found this letter I wrote to him when he was at Boot Camp: he, 19, me, 17. It is a disturbing / fascinating / amusing insight into my teen brain, and it leaves me with questions and thoughts. Like, in what version of the world did it make sense to call my brother Sexy? Also, how interesting, that even at 17, I was making excuses for my slack on human connection and blaming it on ‘sooooo busy with play.’  Spoiler alert: I totally got into Chapel Hill.

It’s infinitely creepy and satisfying to know you’ve got three boy versions of yourself runnin round, lookin like you, but boy version. Here’s big Brostetter Pete, who’s been brewing his own beer, and it’s AMAZING, and so we drank it all.

It’s Offishal

May 28th, 2012 by Bekah Brunstetter

Big Brother Pete is 32 today! Which means I am almost 30! BAH! He’s only the best big brother ever and is quite the ‘catch.’ Also my heart is filled to the ‘brim’ with bday wishes for him. Also something about ‘hooks.’ I am happy to discover that he is spending his b/memorial day fishing, one of his favorite things. Pete, if you’re reading this, your line just got a bite. Also I’m going to call you, right now. Your phone is ringing. I don’t understand how you are on the internet but not on your phone.

Tiny Tim

May 11th, 2012 by Bekah Brunstetter

Today, my wee little brother graduates college and gets commissioned as a USMC officer. He’s second from the right. This picture is real hard for my family to stomach, being that my family  is comprised mostly of  white supremacists*, but I like it just the same. I wish I could be there. It’s only fair,  as he was forced, at the age of 17, to sit and watch me graduate UNC some years ago. BON CHANCE, TIM!
