Gindigo Gink!

Aside from being my new favourite colour and a long standing favourite tree. We had one in Thunder Bay - part myth (well real enough that a mere mortal (aka me) managed to snag a leaf on the eve of my graduation) and anywho.

Momentous events this week

I finally finished "A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson. I started it last fall and have been reading it a few pages at a time in the Salle de Bain for the last 10 months. Don't get me wrong -its a fantastic book detailing the history of science particularly in the last 400 years as well as the myriad theories and truths we've uncovered over the period. Fantastic book. Hard to put down - but I've been rationing books lately.

Next - I also finished Kushiel's Scion after again wistfully gazing at it on the shelf for 2 months. It didn't last nearly as long as the other - because one simply can not put Jacqueline Carey's books down once they are started. She is simply a wonderful author, a story teller and a human and a poet.

Meanwhile, I've been frantically reading stuff for school and trying to learn as much as I can. Gabe has been incredibly patient with my stressing, spazzing, zoning and general iratibility and busyness.

Ginko leaves always seemed lucky to me. Its a rare species that would be extinct if not for the tender care of humans. Hopefully their luck is contagious.

Anywho, I'm off to learn about surveying and survey equipment.
