Out of the Blue

Well, the Earth has completed another circuit around the sun, so it's another birthday for me. I'm not one for making a big deal about birthdays, an attitude well-suited to this falling on a Sunday. My big plans mostly involve chilling and watching football. And since the Giants play tomorrow night, the NFL is providing me the gift of not having to watch them lose today.

(Bicyclist versus Elephant video) addendum from the book.
/snip
"What the video fails to capture is my high pitched schoolgirl screams of terror.

The oft-cited phenomenon of everything slowing down during a life-threatening situation didn't play out for me. I was a blur of thoughtless primal fear until I was well beyond the herd. Then I was conscious only that I was breathing, though in ragged gasps.

Later, the locals would tell me the elephant's behavior was a mock charge, that if the animal had really meant business it would have tucked in its trunk, so as not to damage the vital equipment, and would have led with its tusks. With not a little amusement, they reminded me that the hyenas that had trapped me inside a port-a-potty at camp the previous evening were a more formidable threat."

Happy Birthday to Blue's Bushy Beaver! Cake Party2 Salute
People can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That's easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked
and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

Happy Birthday Blue, I know how old you are but I'll never tell! In about 7 months I'll be right there with you (hopefully).

Happy Birthday Blue! May it be a quietly enjoyable day.

I am happy to say that I won't be eating turkey at all this year. Ribeyes for Thanksgiving and prime rib for Christmas.

Not sure knowing the elephant ear thing is valuable knowledge.

Happy Birthday Blue.
I got A Guide to Falling Down in Public
"finding balance in and off the bicycle" and I can't put it down. It's by
the guy who appears in the video, Joe "Metal Cowboy" Kurmaskie, and is hilarious.
