Well, it is summer once again, and time to start up my blogging. However, this is the first summer in SEVEN years that I will not be going up to Toolik Lake. It is sad, but time to move on. Like to finishing my dissertation. However, I've had lots of adventures since the hamster and the workshop in Sweden, so hopefully I'll be able to fill in some fun gaps in the next couple of days.
Saturday was my first summer solstice since 9/11 that I haven't been in costume, at a bonfire, north of the Arctic Circle. Instead I took the dog to the dog park, ate pierogies, and watched the new movie, Get Smart.
