Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum Field Trip

A lovely rainy day for our Saturday BIO class field trip to ASDM

Wasn't expecting an aquarium section (all these animals exist in the Sea of Cortez). These eels are fascinating - they pop up and down from the sand.


Can barely even find the fish it's so well camouflaged.

LOTS of snakes in the reptile room - this one is a Mexican Pit Viper. I liked that he/she is kind of posing for their pic - the others were mostly less cooperative.

I thought these little lizards showed a lot of personality :-)

Bobcats, keeping out of the rain.

An ocelot staying dry.

I've never seen a snake do this open-mouthed thing before. He/she was just sitting there like that!

The Mountain Lion was beautiful!!!

The Mountain Lion is in the tree in the background - shortly after I took these pics, the branch snapped. The Mountain Lion fell, in stages, but was totally fine!

A deer taking a siesta.

The Black Bear was not bothered by the drizzle/rain at all - he/she just laid there napping (probably enjoying the coolness of the weather, for a change).

Mexican wolves

Desert Bighorns apparently prefer to be dry :-)

Otters DO NOT prefer to be dry ;-)

My Word for 2018

I don't know what rock I've been living under, but this concept of having a guiding word for the year is brand new to me. I only know about it because of a vlogger I watch regularly: She's in Her Apron . But the idea is SO up my alley. I've never been a resolution-maker, but a word? I love words, obviously. I live for them, by them, and though them. To use one to define all my many intentions and goals for the year is one of those ideas where I'm mystified that I never thought of it! My word for 2018 is: RELEASE

New Organizer

Apparently, my previous mini binder couldn't stand up to what I put it through. Or more precisely, my DIY glued-on fabric cover couldn't. I'm gonna blame the glue. Yeah, that's what it was, faulty glue ;-) So I went on Amazon to find a replacement and found something even better! It's already pretty: .....

The Great Beauty Film Commentary - beware possible spoilers!

Trains that don’t go anywhere ... La Grande Belleza was hard for me. It’s the first film we’ve been assigned in my contemporary film class that I didn’t fall in love with on some level. My gut reaction to the film the first time around was that there was some profound stuff in it, but that is was achingly long and headache-inducingly convoluted. I just didn't 'get' it. I appreciate it more now, after considering the questions which were posed to us, and reading the articles, interviews, and reviews. There are now things I find interesting about it, and questions it left me, but I’m still not in love with it. The initial party scene instantly made my mind flashback to Baz Luhrmann’s Gatsby party scenes. Though I admit the excess and debauchery were grittier and more palpable in this film. But the break-neck montages almost made me nauseous at times.  And after a certain point the cinematography felt like just another layer of distraction in a film so much about exactly that
