Wow. Two posts in one day. I haven't done that since... well, not for a long time, in any event.
This will be a short one though, as I only have a few things to say.
Got ice cream, then dragged Jess down to the Audobon sancutuary in Marblehead, after we actually found it, which took some time (well, it's not near the water... and we're on the Neck... so it must be in the middle!). There we saw not one, but two herons! My friend the black crowned night heron was there, and there was also a small heron that a nice lady told us was a little green heron. This guy was much more interesting than the night heron, because the night heron just sat there, whereas this fellow was actually hunting. He was diving in the water to try and catch a fish, and this was COOL. Jess was very good-natured about humoring me in my insanity.
Then I went to see A Mighty Wind with the family. Damn funny movie. Not quite as good as Best in Show, but then, what is? I think this one was about on par with Waiting for Guffman. I wasn't too sure I wanted to see it, because I am not exactly a fan of folk music (reference links in the Music section on the side if you need proof). But you really don't need to like/know anything about folk music in order to enjoy this. A thoroughly amusing film. If you know anything about movies you'll go see every movie that Christopher Guest has ever done, if you haven't already. And you're a fool if you haven't.
Also, when you go see this movie, make sure you look at the sister in the Steinbloom family. If you attend my glorious high school you will undoubtedly see what I saw, which is that she looks a whole lot like Mrs. Oppenheim, the art teacher. Har de har har. I larfed, I did.
If you like Jhonen Vasquez (i.e. if you have good taste and are a smart, funny person), check out NNY's world or Vicious Grin. Yeah. Good stuff. Err... there are probably more sites out there, but them's what I gots. To put it illiterately.
Also! I upped the number of entries you can see on this here blog from 10 to 25, since the archives still aren't working properly and some people who haven't read in a while desire more of the 'back issues'. Those being older blogs. Anywho. I'm working on the archives, I really am, please don't kill me.
The point of telling you this is, with more blogs it is obviously going to take this page longer to load. Not a problem for me, with my magical, fantastical Cable Internet, but it might annoy you poor stone-age dial up kiddies. If this is an Issue (but only if it's an issue with a capital 'I'), then you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, since that is my email address.
Yesh. That is all.
