Give me your brains, I mean, your suggestions.

In the near-to-distant future (how's that for vague?) I'm planning on going up to the Great White North. Along the way I'm passing through a few states I've never been to, including one called Oregon. Oregon is home to Portland, and Portland is reputed to be the home of a mythical place called Powell's Books. Now, never having been anywhere even close to far-away Canadia, I have only second-hand accounts, but all of them point to this store being an El Dorado of literature, a Utopia of used books....

Your troubles are (almost) over

Do you believe in astrology? I don't, but I've got a little something to share anyway.

You might have noticed for the last week or so that things have been falling apart. Your plans have fallen through, things break down on you, and stuff just goes wrong. But that's all going to change now. Mercury has been in retrograde, that period of bad skies when travel, communication, and planning doesn't seem to go right, but today, Friday, it's leaving. Things will be back to normal soon. Of...

Yesterday I got back from my London trip. It was one of those vacations where I didn't really plan anything ahead of time (except my plane ticket and hotel of course) so I didn't really know what I was going to do once I got there. I've been in big cities before and so in a lot of ways I knew what to expect. Still, there were a couple of things that were pretty surprising to me.

First, the bad so I can get that out of the way:

- There are smokers EVERYWHERE. It's disgusting....

An American Scarf in London

I'm going to be traveling in the UK this summer, mostly London and the surrounding area, and I don't have a good idea of what things I should do while I'm there. I also don't know exactly how expensive things can be. Really, I'm going in kind of blind and I'd like someone to shine a little light if they can. What's good? What's a waste of time? What's overpriced? What's worth the cost? That kind of thing.

In particular, I'm a vegetarian and I don't know how vegetarian-friendly the UK...

Have a cry and a laugh on me

Posted March 27th, 2013 at 11:25 AM by Esper (The Uncarved Blog)

It's one of those days here in America where we talk about moving forward and ending discrimination and other big things like that. So since that's the kind of mood I'm in I wanna share this video:



It's okay. Have yourself a little cry. I did. Now, cheer yourself up with a little laugh:



Or if that's not your cup of tea, here are some red pandas playing in snow to warm your heart:
