I'm glad the hiatus on Dinosaur Comics is over. Some of those honeymoon comics were weaksauce.
Went to a reading for a play last night that somebody we know wrote. It was okay, somewhat amusing, not really ready for production, probably not capable of being made workable. It was an adaptation of Peter Pan, a "darker" version, more violent, it was clever in the beginning but wrote itself into some corners. Prefer the original, which is plenty dark and violent and doesn't need the implied darkness hashed out explicitly. Not to say the original Peter and Wendy is perfect.
Getting home from that was unpleasant. It's 2 miles directly south of our apartment. We just missed the bus home. We should've caught a cab right then. It's a cheap ride. When we realized how long we'd been waiting for the bus (nearly half an hour!) we kicked ourselves. But, another feature we discovered just then, a thing that you can text which tells you how long until the bus comes, said the bus would be there in three minutes, so we grinned and bore it. To do next time: text the thingy immediately to find out how long until the next bus, and if it's too long, take the 2 mile cab ride. Another fun learning opportunity.
Patronal feast for our parish this weekend. Good times.
Lateral tendon for hamstrings sore on both legs. Only mild. Slightly puzzling. Only possibly culprit is the front squats on Saturday, but those pretty much leave out the hamstrings.
Kids: don't get tattoos in languages you don't speak. It's hard enough to get a tattoo in your native language and not screw it up.
Kids: a lot of your photos are geotagged. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/12/technology/personaltech/12basics.html?src=me&ref=general This is also why I don't like the practice some people have of taking photos of private events and posting them places. For instance: "Protecting your privacy is not just a matter of being aware and personally responsible, said Mr. Sommer, the researcher. A friend may take a geotagged photo at your house and post it."
Got first box from our CSA this weekend. Had a watermelon with a yellow interior. Which reminds me, some of the Russian varieties of watermelon sound interesting. White flesh, things like that.
It's time to go to lunch. MEAT.
