The weather started out warm and variably cloudy today. S0 went on playdate while S1 and I did the grocery shopping, and took a long walk around one of the ponds at Great Meadows. Some kind soul let me confirm the Barrow's Goldeneye sighting with his scope. Yeah, someday I'll get a Swarovski and I'll be hardcore like that too.

We also witnessed perch (fish) valiantly trying to swim upstream into the pond, half out of water, sometimes exhausted on their sides, struggling for oxygen, swimming back, and trying again. The context is that the refuge maintainers have installed barriers, including a very shallow spillway from the pond out to the stream, which are designed to keep out the carp – large, exotic fish that can do severe damaged to the ecosystem of the refuge.

We took it easy in the afternoon, when it turned dark and threatening but never rained that seriously. I heard “I Beleive In a Thing Called Love” as we left dinner at Chili's and it never sounded so right as it did there. After picking up this book as a remainder at Barnes & Noble, I gave the kids a bath and put them to bed.

Meanwhile, O is headed home, happy that Maine won in overtime. See ya in Boston, humps.

That is a great book. Of course, I paid full price for the hardcover the week it was published. :P (I didn't want to wait two years for remaindered copies to sprout up). My favorite chapter is the one for Dinosaur Jr. I'm not even that much of a fan, but the stories of the miseries J, Lou and Murph would inflict each other with for no good reason, are just too hilarious.

I feel somewhat guilty about buying remainders of good book that I know I should have bought earlier, but try telling that to the pile on backlogged unread books in my bedroon !

I started flipping though Our Band last night, and there are some very choice tidbits in there, like Ian McKaye's straight-edge advocacy probably stemming from problems some of his family had with alcohol.

It was one hell of a game. Go Black Bears!

If they can pull two more out like that, I'll be happy !
