It was a pretty good Spring/Summer/Fall, but with the Thanksgiving celebrations all done, and the snow beginning to cover everything again, it was time to start up work on the ship again. When I last worked on it, I was midway through the center section of construction. The first section was building the hull, the center section involves building up the deck and everything that goes on the deck, and the final section will be the rigging and the sails. I’m looking forward to another winter of practicing patience and cursing the ridiculously weak structural integrity of strips of wood with holes drilled in them. All the pictures have been updated at my gallery site.
Also, the next step is making cannons!
It was pointed out to me [again] while out in Ireland that my pictures of myself seem to contain an almost identical smirk/smile. I decided to put this theory to the test:
I’m out in Colorado, and spent the day in Rocky Mountain National Park. I saw some animals, and many mountains!
In celebration of New Futurama Episodes!!!!!111one airing tonight, I give to you my list of favorite original Futurama episodes (seasons 1-4). If you’ve not seen them, you should go watch them all. Right now. Then watch them again. It’s a funny show, and you like to laugh.
