What The Poet Said To The Sea

Quick hits, broadcasting live from the new MacBook at the Brainerd Public Library (wireless Internet, don't you know):

1. Poppy is pregnant like a pumpkin.

2. I'm worried about my cat. He's getting pretty old, and he's starting to show it.

3. Gumshoe 4 should be out any day now.

4. I have a Northwestern assignment: read Utopia. I think I'll do it in a coffee shop while wearing a turtleneck. Oh God, does Sam Walker own a turtleneck? If not, it's only a matter of time.

5. According to a letter I recieved the other day, I will need a 4000 cubic inch backpack for my Northwestern hiking/camping. I don't think my current one is big enough, so I might need to buy one, along with some hiking boots for the 5-7 hours of daily hiking we'll be doing. Maybe I'll bond with the dude who has to carry me up the side of the mountain.

6. I need to check Northwestern's policy on knives. I hope it's like the U of M's: if the blade is 4 inches or less it's fine. I started using a knife this summer, and it's turned out to be quite useful. I'm definitely bringing one on the camping trip and I'd like to have one around for opening, prying, whittling, juggling, and other knife-based activities. Perhaps the student handbook can answer my questions.

7. You know who I haven't seen in a while? Matt Capelle. Capelle, I gotta get that Lord of the Rings radio show from you again.

Also, Andrew Kubas, it's been too long.

8. The Crow Wing County Fair opens today. This is my year to find the medallion. I can just FEEL it.
