i have returned

I'm finally back from a long weekend in San Diego. To try to write about it all in detail would take far more energy than I have the capacity to muster right now, so I'll leave you these few tidbits:

1. I pet a dolphin.
2. I was shat upon by a lorikeet.
3. I pet a dolphin!!!
5. Emperor penguins are cool.
5. Our tram tour at the Wild Animal Park was narrated live by Martha Stewart*.
6. I PET A FRICKIN' DOLPHIN!

*Okay, maybe it wasn't actually Martha Stewart, but it was her voice double, and I have the video to prove it!

So yeah, good times. I apologize for my brevity, but let me make up for it with this photo of me being attacked by lorikeets:

OH. And one last thing. I mentioned above that emperor penguins are cool. Let me just point you in the direction of this movie trailer I found this evening for the documentary March of the Penguins. Best film of the year so far? I think it just might be. Looks like it at least has best documentary all wrapped up. And come on... penguins!!
