Zootastic #3: Metaphorical Mammal Molestation At Last!

Poor Karen.  She’s gone days without so much as a whiff of geology from this blog, and it’s got to be wearing by now.  So let’s remedy that.  There’s even geology at a zoo, if you know where to look: That, my darlings, is Mount Rainier.  More specifically, it’s a massive rotten mass of a …

Ecstatic

Thank you, FaceBook, for making sure I knew!  Tomorrow, when I go to work, the first thing I shall be doing is requesting the night of December 2nd off. Woot!

Zootastic No. 2: Sea Mammal Molestation the Reprise

Yesterday, we began rambling through the aquariums at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium.  I promised thee more sea creatures, and more sea creatures thee shall have.  With the caveat (in answer to a previous comment) that no, I’m not sure of a great many of my identifications, especially not of the squidgy little blobby …

I Probably Require Medical Attention

Far too many years ago, I was in a Mexican cantina (continuing my) drinking after my first Circus Mexicus.  Stevie, then the Peacemakers’ lead guitarist, was sitting a few tables away.  We were not yet drunk enough to approach him and engage in appropriate worship.  And then our chance seemed to have passed, as he …

Zootastic No. 1: ZOMG It’s a Cuttlefish! and Other Sea Chanteys

The problem with going to a zoo like Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium is that there’s so much to see.  You careen from one adorable animal to the next, end up with 50,000 photos, and then have to pick the best of the best when every single one makes you squee.  We’re going to have …

Dumbfuckery du Jour

Right, then.  So I’d had this perfect trifecta of burning stoopid all set and ready for ye when I got a bit sidetracked, and I thought this morning, “Oh, dear, something really profoundly inane will happen today and I’ll end up with either an unwieldy foursome or I’ll have to scuttle the trifecta as old …

Oh, What a Night!

I didn’t get a chance to post more than the picture, because I’d dragged one of the lovely Pharyngulites I’d met home and we were busy engaging in the kind of free-ranging geek discussion I haven’t been able to enjoy since my dear friend Sean last came by (which was all too long ago, as …
