1. Yesterday's Vikings game. Holy cow! Turnovers galore from New Orleans result in the Viks steaming ahead. Then Viks lose momentum near the end of the third, and Reggie Bush has TWO amazing kickback returns for touchdowns. Then, the Saints tie it up, but they miss their long field goal. Vikings get all the way down the field in just a matter of minutes, kick a field goal, and are victorious. This all sounds pretty brilliant, right? But, no, I am leaving out the best part. Early on in the game, the Saints go for a field goal. And it is blocked! And tipped! Right into the hands of someone who apparently loves to run and does it well. What an amazing touchdown. The game made records galore, and it was lots of fun to watch. 2. This guide on looking good in photos is comprehensive and useful. I particularly like hint 6; this is my trick for looking better. 3. It is raining today. I love rain. It's one thing I've been missing from Michigan, as fall in Michigan means rain, lightening, and amazing torrential downpours. Apparently, I missed a 5 inches in a day doozy a few weeks ago. 4. This article on otter declines and their influence on the bald eagle (apparently positive) is so beautiful and interesting. While the otter decline is sad, the article is just so darn interesting. If you like nerdy biology stuff, go check it out. This is exactly the stuff of biology that interests me so much.
