Seagull season.

Tuesday, March 29th, 2005

Spring is in the air, and that means that seagull season is about to start again. During seagull season (which is pretty much spring, summer and fall), the giant, mutant seagulls that roam the streets and rooftops of Brighton get extra aggressive and star…

Eggs molto benedict

Sunday, March 27th, 2005

Behold! My first attempt to make eggs benedict - and it was a success! Okay, I haven’t totally cracked the egg poaching process yet; when I drop my eggs in the water, I tend to wind up with a little globule of yolk surrounded by filaments of white t…

Sunday, March 27th, 2005

As a follow-up to my blog entry from earlier in the month, here are some more examples of innocent library books that have been defiled and scarred by cruel slashes from various implements of writing. This first example is particularly remarkable: it̵…

Green chile cheeseburger

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2005

My mom and dad and I were on our way to Tucson when we stopped at the Cafe Sonoita for a bit of lunch. Despite our initial intentions to eat something light and healthy, we all succumbed to the lure of the green chile cheeseburger. I was so famished befor…

Faith-based science

Saturday, March 19th, 2005

"Several Imax theaters, including some in science museums, are refusing to show movies that mention the subject [of evolution] - or the Big Bang or the geology of the earth - fearing protests from people who object to films that contradict biblical d…

Defacing the good book.

Tuesday, March 1st, 2005

How much of a half-wit do you have to be to think it’s okay to deface library books like this? And this is aboslutely nothing - I’ve checked out some books that were so full of highlighting, underlining, circles, arrows, and marginal comments…

Signs that an idiot was here before you.
