the only earth?

bye bye morning

i had this great plan to sleep in this morning, but a vocal songbird vetoed that proposal. once i was awake, instant messaging had my morning for breakfast. i chatted with elena about bosses and the evils of morning meetings; and celebrity blogger andy dehnart sent me a random "hey" and we talked about curtains as a conversation piece / makeout incentive and the perils of reality tv stardom.

i hardly ever start IM conversations, but I find the list on online contacts rather comforting. it's nice to know that other people are simultaneously wandering around the internet, be they busy, normal, or occupied.
the only earth?

(no subject)

even though best buy is the devil, i went there today to buy a new phone. it's kind of sad to find out that i can be bought for $75-100.

when i turn on this new phone for the first time, it has a walking panda on the screen. strange. i wonder who programs these things, and why they think people want to look at pandas, racecars, or dogs on front porches. or maybe i'm just some sort of a freak to think these are strange choices for a screensaver.
the only earth?

great outdoors

i went to Second Ascent in Ballard today with Rachel. She's looking for a backpack for an expedition later this summer to the Hoh Rainforest. I'm thinking about going, but I hadn't realized that a person could end up needing to take out a bank loan just to be outfitted for a walk in the woods.

We're taking a more laid back camping trip to Orcas this weekend, so that will be a good way to gauge my enthusiasm.

For now, I guess I should get ready for Dante's -- no special equipment required.
