A nice day hike in Big Sky, Montana. Here's a video I shot:

Spider-pig, spider-pig

I pulled a Homer at the Simpsons movie - I ate a whole bag of popcorn and a bag of Reese's Miniatures. Doh!

(If you like the TV show, you'll like the movie.)

Fair observations

I went to the Gallatin County Fair on Saturday. Some observations:

1. the cow barn smells pretty good compared to the hog barn

2. I cannot eat an entire funnel cake

3. snapping turtles are cool

4. sugar gliders are cool

5. sheep are noisy

6. young kids like merry-go-rounds and small roller coasters

Skipping to the end

I admit it: I skipped to the end of the last Harry Potter book. In fact, the only HP I've read was the last few chapters of the last book. Based on that small sample, it seems like an interesting series.

(I have seen all the movies ;-)

I fed a hungry vampire, er - donated blood - today. I've been doing it off and on for the past 25 years.

Review: Sense and Sensibility

Another excellent novel by Jane Austen.

The Modern Library edition displayed above has an interesting introduction by David Gates. He makes the novel seem almost hard-boiled. Is there any wonder that I, who read all the Richard Stark and Dashiell Hammett I can get my hands on, liked this novel?


It's always fun to "mess about in" maps:

Another dream sense

I recently experienced a definite sense of proprioreception while dreaming.

So far, I've also definitely experienced seeing and hearing in dreams. I guess falling & flying relate to sense of balance, so I've experienced that sense as well. I'm not sure about touch; I'm pretty sure against smelling and tasting.

Review: Ratatouille

I enjoyed Ratatouille, even though my palate is unsophisticated.

Review: Transformers movie

Surprisingly entertaining. A good date movie - if your date is an engineer.

Pyrophilia (July 4)

Bozeman, Montana is the most fireworks-crazy place I've ever lived in. From my back deck, I watched a 180 degree panorama of color and fire.
