I have to pack for the weekend this morning so OF COURSE I am procrastinating, because while Froglet might be super excited to go dog sledding for her birthday, I can imagine several other ways to enjoy a day that do not require quite as many layers of clothing (it’s the having to run next to the sled whenever we go uphill that worries me the most).

So I’m on my phone googling sunfish, because I know next to nothing about them and the rant I saw (and reblogged) is hilarious. I really am interested in animals and evolution and uh, I don’t really believe there are useless forms of life (in the biological sense, that is).

And the rant is on the first result page. With a lengthy reply from a marine biologist, and several pages of comments. And I am … sure there is a lesson from this somewhere, or something to understand, but I haven’t figured it out yet - or maybe I have… but I am not yet ready to listen.

I guess I should pack my suitcase while I think about this, and make sure I don’t forget my long johns…

On a completely different note: I love how all the emails sent by candidates to the Presidential elections in France go straight to my primary inbox except for Marine Le Pen, whose emails go straight to my spam folder. Well played, gmail. Well played. 

(Froglet turns 18 just in time to vote. Every vote against the Front National is a good vote - her request to be added to the voting register at the French Consulate is signed and ready to be mailed.)

The lake is frozen solid. This is the first time I walk on actual water OMG and it’s a glorious feeling. Lakes in France don’t ever freeze enough for this.
