peek at the sealions at Aquarium of the Pacific -- that link offers interesting information about just why these guys are sticking their fins out of the water (and they're likely all males -- after mating season, California sea lions head up our way, returning south just in time to supervise the obstetrics ward). Thermoregulation!
And if that's not enough to entertain you while I write up that long-delayed post, I've been looking back a year, and I'm still pleased with what I did in this post on my Childhood HairStyle. It was also a piece that involved procrastination, one that followed a series of posts, each trying to answer a question but sometimes seeming stuck in Zeno's paradox. . . At any rate, if you haven't read these posts, are looking for additional diversion, and have ever thought about the links between hair and personality, I'm delighted to share last year's thoughts with you.
Meanwhile, that wine tour post isn't going to write itself (apparently, although I've been waiting for months for that to happen).
Happy Thermoregulation -- hope you're as cozy as our sea lions!
