but teenage, mutant, and ninja?
An email from a neighbor reminds me that I never did post some of the things I was saying "...I'd so be blogging this, dammit" about from the time I was forcibly offline and the recovery therefrom, so have some Bulletpoints of Random Interest:

  • On my way back from one email-checking run over to Kinko's I stopped to watch the swallows that live under the bridge by Bohemian National (that is obviously not a current picture...) and saw three big rocks washed up on a mudbank in the river. And then I noticed that the rocks had heads. And then I noticed that the rocks had legs. And then the rocks got up and walked into the water and swam away, because they were not, in fact, rocks, but turtles the size of cats. I love living in a nature reserve that has bus service...

  • Other wildlife spotted in the area includes former president of Poland Lech Walesa, who was in town to dedicate a building at Northeastern and it seemed like it would have been the height of laziness not to schlep over and watch. (And no, I am not meaning to equate Lech Walesa to a gang of turtles. He's a funny guy even if I don't speak Polish and I would totally hang out with him to do shots and eat sushi off scantily clad cabana boys dedicate another building. Erm, I'm a bit sleep-deprived, I think.)

  • The collective noun for turtles, BTW, is a bale, now that I've thought to look it up. I believe my bale were common snappers, which makes me a little worried about running into one the next time it floods. Because you know there's always a next time it floods.


  • Is it just me, or is half the staff at the Genius Bar named Josh? There were two guys named Josh the last time I took the Mini in, and then two guys named Josh this time who I don't think were the same two guys. Have at with your conspiracy theories.

The genius bar as in the staff at Apple stores?

Or at least the ones they keep shackled upstairs to deal with the hysterical Mac parents who need their babies fixed (and I'm sure it amuses them no end that I bring the Mini in wrapped up a towel like it's an animal going to the vet) -- I mean, out of 3 or 4 people behind the counter it seems like half of them are always Joshes...
