dispatches from NYC

Weekendery

The pterosaurs exhibit at the NY Museum of Natural History is cool, if that’s your thing (it’s totally my thing). And yes, I had to Be An Adult and let the kids play with the pterosaur flight simulator, rather than shoving them aside to show ’em how it’s done. Adulting sucks, some times. Although I’m …

State of the Meerkat: A Retreat without Retreating

So this was the weekend I had blocked out to do a hard run on SILVER.  Friday afternoon I laid in supplies (ready-to-eat meals and several bottles of wine), updated Anti-Social, and took a declared Twitter-cation for 48 hours.

And who watched Cosmos last night? …

But to miss the early morning, especially in winter, …
