how i spent my summer vacation

Actually, it was just a day trip.
So...this happened a month ago, but still. I went kayaking in sea caves! I who can't even swim!
There were sea lions! There was a goddamn blue whale! With a calf! And hundreds and hundreds of dolphins leaping out of the water as far as you could see in all directions (no exaggeration)!

And that was just the boat ride over to the Channel Islands. Then we got in kayaks and: There were awesome sea caves accessible only by boat, starfish the size of your hands, seals with giant whiskers popping up in the middle of our group, tiny baby jellyfish looking awesome in the water right next to our kayaks, baby lobster IN our kayaks, more, more, more!

Seriously, it was one of the greatest things ever. I felt like I flew to some amazing land halfway around the world...but really, it was a 90-minute drive from LA. When I move back here in 3 years and you all come to visit (!!!), we are doing this.

Oh yeah, I didn't take my camera, seeing as how it would get wet, so I stole all these pictures from the website of the awesome company that provided our kayaking guide. I kayaked through that elephant-trunk hole in the second picture. Yahoo!

Add one to the "pro" column for Yale

This is Monty, aka General Montgomery, the Yale Law School Library dog. Apparently not just an adorable mascot, Monty is a certified therapy dog who, under a current pilot program, can be "checked out" within the library by students for half-hour periods to relieve stress. News of this program comes right when I'm deliberating between Ivies... Coincidence? Or fate? Or just Yale librarians shrewdly enticing potential students with cute dog pictures? Whatever. Works for me.

Ice Storm!

Asa took these really cool pictures of a forest by our house where we take the dog all the time. Everything was covered in ice. Quentin loved it. I was working, so didn't get to see the coolness, but I wish I had, because these photos are purdy.

K, this seems to really speak to your general frustrations with P-land inefficiency... while also featuring Aubrey Plaza from Parks & Recreation, which I watched all of on Netflix when I needed breaks from "Moby Dick." It's a long book.


Searching for Jordan

Ha. Any Jordan apparently, who what? My effort to read about Jordan sacking its cabinet is up there with...
