Solidarity for Pluto


Solidarity for Pluto
Originally uploaded by sheridanbee.

Let's all show our solidarity for pluto by shaving our heads, thus turning them into little planetoid-esque balls. If you can't do that, raise a fist to show solidarity for our dissed little "dwarf" planet.

At Siren in Port Townsend, WA. I wish it had come out better - the other two dudes were on the drums and the dijiridu. I saw them playing on the street the day before with a collection box and a sign that read "poetry upon request".

I think that's what it is called. In Olympic National Park. It's about two times taller than the picture.

On the Ellwell River in WA. They're removing this and the lower Ellwell dam so that salmon and other fish can spawn.

But only one person saw one minke whale. Still a great trip from Port Townsend to San Juan Islan.

Phó 75 in Arlington. Awesome noodle soup from $4.50. For live entertainment, count the number of ways to eat it! My guess: Somewhere between 100 and a jazillion.

The Nanobots Made Me Do It...

Am I controlled by nanobots? I don't know. Have you heard something?

Perhaps I am overdoing it. I've just started blog number 3. This one will be far less topical than my science blog, Attack of the Monkey, and more public than my other one (which I won't divulge right now).

But I am going on a series of random trips in the next few months and plan to wirelessly update pictures and observations from my travels, and I might as well do it here! So, watch this space, it may well be updated someday.
