Hello. I am back. I went camping. Here are some observations:
- How do forest fires start when it’s so damn hard just to keep chunks of dry wood burning?
- Apparently, if you leave garbage out overnight while camping, animals actually will find your campsite and rip it open. It’s not a myth.
- Real snakes are less exciting than the kind that hang out on aero-planes in movies. Yes, I did see Snakes on a Plane, and it fulfilled my unreasonably high expectations. It was enhanced by the fact that I saw it at 10:30pm, when only other hardcore moviegoers were in the theatre. Their fits of inappropriate laughter and random comments (e.g. screaming “SNAKES!” in response to questions from characters in the movie) made it even funner than it would have been otherwise.
- I like how music – even crappy music – sounds better after you’ve gone several days without hearing any music whatsoever.
Speaking of music, I’ve tried putting a new thing in the sidebar there that shows what music I am currently listening to, and/or the last few songs I’ve listened to. This is from Last.fm, which used to be kinda lame but is now pretty damn cool. It keeps track of what you listen to and can create radio stations for you, or show you people who listen to similar music, and stuff like that.
Here is what the sidebar thing looks like, except more fancy:
Oooo, it worked. Neat. You can even click on it for more info. Now I can pretend that people actually care about what music I’m listening to.
P.S. I hope you realized that the dude pictured in that last post isn’t actually me. Look at those glasses. They’re huge. I wouldn’t wear those.
