I haven’t yet seen the new Ghostbusters movie (I fully intend to), but I do want to share some anecdata: Read more

Yeah, it was great! I’d already seen the Lehman Cave system in Great Basin National Park, and some caves in Mammoth Cave National Park, so it was my third cave tour of the year.

I love these shoes. They’re comfortable and breathable, and are great for hiking.

I’ve tried. They always insist, and they did do much of the work to get me there.

I haven’t done a summer vacation yet, but I have hit a lot of the National Parks of Arizona, Nevada and Utah during the spring. That’s really when you want go to those places anyway, in order to avoid the crowds and the heat. And because it’s the off-season, hotel rates are usually cheaper.

Yeah, the trick is to listen to lots of samples and then basically download anything by performers that you like. I find that people who read their own memoirs are usually pretty solid, and there are a few performers out there who make anything sound good. Read more

I kind of lost interest in these books after Temeraire and Lawrence are shipped to Australia, and it’s mostly because Lawrence bores me, a little. Temeraire is much more interesting.

I haven’t yet finished it, but I’m 80% of the way through and still enjoying it. I’d say yes, it’s worth at least reading the first one.

Currently reading Just One Damned Thing After Another. Well, listening, actually, because I downloaded the audiobook. The person reading it is giving a great performance - she’s really fun to listen to, and the story is engaging. There are some things that I hope improve in the rest of the series, but I like it enough

Exactly. And for me, it’s not coming from a place of “I’m right to like this thing and you’re wrong not to like it,” it’s more that I want to share the joy, you know? But joy is not transferable, unfortunately.

I had to grow out of the mindset that art and entertainment can somehow be objectively evaluated. I do like to discuss pop culture with people, but I also have to consciously remind myself that other people’s opinions are just different, and not “wrong” when it comes to subjective interpretation or emotional response.

I have a grill pan that I use on my stove top and no actual grill. My mom has a nice gas grill, though, and during the summer we have outdoor cooking get-togethers on a regular basis.

Probably so! But I’m glad we’re letting them sleep now.

Okay. It sounds like a medical subculture thing, so I’m not surprised that I’m not immediately getting this. But I’m kind of thinking of it like another profession that requires a lot of time and training - pilots are responsible for a lot of lives, as are medical professionals, and there are laws about how long Read more

Angry Orchard cider while packing up my stuff. I have found at least three items that I had purchased replacements for, thinking that I didn’t already have them. So now I have two tape measures, two black army caps and two copies of Iron Man 3. We’ll see what else I dig up.

Currently sitting at my work desk, which will only be mine for a couple more weeks. I've accepted an offer from another company and am moving to greener pastures.
