Who knows where ideas come from. They just appear.
Time to think about whatever for the first time in almost a week.
The rain killed all the snow, so the field season is back and full of piss and vinegar.
I exhumed the bookface after years of dormancy. Three years dead. Science is a hell of a drug.
I played in a first order drainage for two hours today. I diverted flow. I built dams out of clay, pebbles/cobbled and debris. I watched sediment bars build, surface, drown, erode and grow up to be sediment is another bar downstream.
I took videos of a bank collapse, bar formation and upwelling.
Three packages came in the mail. Oh, happy day.
A bill came in the mail for loans. Oh, terrible day. (It's okay, they'll be dormant again for two years.
Bookface has transformed into a terrifying ad machine.
I'm still waiting on my Buffalo email account, to detach myself (slightly) from the substance abuse capital of college, Oneonta State.*
According to a talk at GSA by Callan Bently of Mountain Beltway, GeoBlogging is on the rise. Maybe I'll shout at him to check out this site and the winners over at Second Floor Science. Good kids over there.
Something you may not hear so much: How can I delete friends from bookface?
I have a dream. That dream is to build a house. Within this house, a staircase. Within this staircase, in ascending order, slabs of the Grand Staircase.
I can ride my bike with no handelbars, no handlebars, no handlebars.
I have so much to do with my life. I just want to play in water.
Dear Baltimore, you embarrassed yourself with your so-called Buffalo Chicken sandwich. Stick to blue crab and lake trout.
This is the most amazing graph of water usage I have ever seen. During the USA/Canada gold medal hockey match:
I have another new blog idea. Geology field trips only. I would be looking for multiple contributors, world wide.
