Ok, I finally have to ask, because I'm quite sure I missed some essential post and thus am not in on the joke. What is it with Gojirawitz?

BTW -- did you get my package yet? If not, wordy goodies coming your way.

We did! I've already devoured the de Lint. :)

Gojira = Godzilla's name in Japan
Witz = common ending to Jewish surnames

Gojirawitz = geeky Jewish family. :)

Ah! I knew the 'witz' bit, but I didn't know Gojira. Makes much more sense now!

One of the semi-clever bits in the American Godzilla is that the Japanese victims of the creature call him "Gojira," and it gets mispronounced by an incompetent reporter as "Godzilla." A New Yorker who knows better gripes "It's Gojira, you freakin' moron!" at the TV when it gets broadcast. I love New Yorkers. Seriously.

Thank you! I have been so horrible about pimping everyone else this year; I really need to do a proper pimp-post before we hit the road tomorrow.
