A return to form...
Merry Christmas everyone, and I mean everyone. Anytime there is an excuse for joy in life take it.
On Friday, I had the day off which was absolutely fantastic. I took the time to work on some individual projects, get a little shopping down and spend some time exploring the world by foot as I so enjoy.
I took the train up to San Francisco to visit the California Academy of Sciences and the SFMOMA. CAS has a traveling exhibit from the American Museum of Natural History on new Dinosaur discoveries. It's a nice exhibit except that I already saw it New York City last year, oh well, if traveling wasn't so much fun how can one complain. It got me thinking, we're relying on dino juice now, what are going to be the sources of dino juice millions of years from now?
There is something amazing about traveling by train and that the escape you can get few other places, people tune into their iPods and read. Or more commonly now, bring either a cell phone or laptop computer and get some work done, though I did see a few games of minesweeper going on. I've been reading Bill Buford's "Heat" which is very much like Anthony Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential" in feel. The kitchen is a brutal but honest place.
I really would love to live somewhere with mass transit out my door. Just as I found the original Dino exhibit in NYC, I wonder if there is the ability export their wonderful mass transit elsewhere?
Happy Holidays everyone, I'm off to sleep.
