I have had it with this year.
Carrie Fisher is the last damned straw.
I was in first grade when the first Star Wars came out. (I was such a geek that my dad had to build me a rolling R2D2 costume out of plywood and tagboard. It had casters for wheels. I had to be lifted inside it and the paper mache headpiece tied on with elastic. Twas awesome.) I was too young to get how amazing it was to have a female lead who could handle a blaster and mouth off to the bad guys, but believe me, I grew up EXPECTING that because of Princess Leia and Lieutenant Uhura.
This year has only gone to show me how little people have learned about the stupidity of bigotry in any form. I have dumped a few friends I didn't know as well as I thought because of it.
Animals are awesome though so beware the photodump. We went to the Miami Zoo and saw the river wolves at last. I only got one good shot out of about 200 because all otters are hyperactive bastards, but giant otters are worse than most. It matters not. I had a joyous time trying.
I am also thinking of publishing a book titled "Photography fails - butt shots from the wild" as I have the most hilarious collection of rumps, tails, and tushies that were ALMOST what I was going for.
Listening to: Drogo messing with stuff he shouldn't
Reading: Koontah's stuff for x-over
Watching: Nothing...we blew through all of Supernatural :(
