Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Leonard and I done went whale-watching today. We're a little sunburned and rather tired. Tip: Highway 1 is more fun and beautiful when you're a passenger. Another tip: the rocking motion of the boat may make you seasick -- or sleepy! I spent a good third of the expedition asleep.

We passed by the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium on the boat, and the captain told us that one room in the Aquarium once served as Ed "Doc" Ricketts's lab, as slightly fictionalized in Steinbeck's Cannery Row. Neat! I'll have to reread that book before Leonard and I go there. (Someday).

Okay, I'm feeling a weird reverse seasickness now, so I'll go to bed.
