For Sentimental Reasons …

goherenowI filed a short piece on travel to Scotland yesterday for TraderDaily.com‘s daily travel update, which is how I found out my column has been banished to limbo. Since it’s unlikely that this piece will see the light of day for a long time, if ever, I’m running it here. Shed a tear for my column, and give this very brief update a read.

Don’t worry, I’ll be back on the hunt tomorrow.

National Zoo: Panda Porn

Like pandas? I do. I’m not sure why; they are living proof that man is trying to thwart evolution. Pandas clearly are too lazy/stupid/unevolved to be able to survive on their own. So, we help them. And, I like that.

This panda is standing on his head. Usually, they just sit around and do nothing, so I was pretty excited to see this one put on a show.

Tian Tian is walking around, happy as hell. He has a pretty good gig.

This is the box in which panda bear Ling Ling came to the United States.

Psyched to be on the road again

After a soul-sucking week at day job, I’m happy to be out and about again. I’ve been working my ass off for the past month and a half, and I need a break. To make matters worse, I was starting to get the travel itch again, so I needed to scratch it with a short gig like DC before it becomes needss a big solution (like Spain or Italy).

I like DC. It’s a great destination for a fast weekend trip. The flight was only 37 minutes long (if you don’t count the hour on the runway at LaGuardia). Can’t beat this shit.
