Eden M. Kennedy is the co-author (with Alice Bradley) of the book Let's Panic About Babies! (St. Martin's Press).

A former college-radio DJ, Mrs. Kennedy has driven cross-country six times in a 1973 Volkswagen Bug and enjoys standing on her head.

Currently she works a straight job and is just about finished writing her first novel.

Hot Wheels

I sort of feel like doing a daily photo again -- or a daily something again -- for as long as I can keep it up. Given my history, I'm predicting this will last between three and seven weeks.

Jackson is slightly obsessed with Hot Wheels that change color when you dunk them in hot or cold water. My sense is that a team at NASA was trying to develop some sort of heat shield for monkey astronaut suits when they accidentally came up with this technology. They then sold the patent to Mattel and have retired to Coral Gables or Banff and spend idle moments planning to volunteer at the Humane Society, once they're completely saturated with Internet porn.
