red panda eating bamboo

With deals like these...

I was wasting time by clicking on some of the links on an ad that NWA sent me. Someone was having fun coming up with names for the last minute packages:

Jacksonville, FL: Fountain of Youth, of Sorts

Tampa, FL: The Surreal Life

St. Petersburg/ Clearwater, FL (via Tampa): Bronze Bods and Gods
Pump up your body with a jog on the beach, then please your soul viewing gilded sculptures from 795 B.C.

fluid memory

This post in jenk's journal about how memories are fluid reminded me that I wanted to mention this anecdote about my memory.

I just finished re-reading The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin. I read it a long time ago, and I didn't remember much about the plot, but I did have a very clear memory of one scene from the book.

Only I discovered when I re-read the book that the scene wasn't there. I had taken two separate bits and combined them in my head. Collapse )
