Reporting in for both July and August here. Apologies for the brevity of the post, but I'm leaving for Maine early Tuesday morning, and it's been a whirlwind of unpacking and repacking over here. It might be a bit quiet on my way out, but I will try to update everyone when possible. Rest assured that I have been busy enjoying the fruits of summer over here, including lots of home-grown tomatoes, hiking, and general fun.
I finished two goals in these two months:
89. go to three movies by myself
My final movie for the set of three was Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It strayed quite a bit from the book, but I still enjoyed the movie. I see the books and movies on two separate trajectories: they describe roughly the same story but do it in a different sort of way. Good enough for me.
94. Visit the Minneapolis zoo
It's actually the Minnesota Zoo, and I've now visited it. I went here once when I was a kid, and I remember the dolphins and a monorail and not much else. On this visit, the dolphins and monorail were on the very short list of things we didn't do/see. More pictures can be seen on my previous post about the zoo.
