Snow here. Given that I was working in dangerously hot conditions two weeks ago, this is interesting.

Anything involving an ice bucket sounds awesome after tossing sandbags in 30°C and 100% humidity.

I spent 16 hours in transit yesterday and crossed the dateline. No, I don't know what day it is, and I don't want to.

Might be. If you somehow obtained my contact info from Facebook, it's probably obsolete though.

Depends upon the spatial extent and intensity of the foliage.

Miso soup, some kind of seaweed salad, a rolled omelet, and rice.

Simple one which says E Tenebris Lux. Interesting thing is that where I am, if you have tattoos, there's a whole range of establishments that one can't get into. But between the lack of flamboyance of mine and that it normally isn't showing and the "gaijin card", it doesn't seem to be a problem.

For the duration of my dig season, I've opted not to have hair.

I slice a potato, brush them with oil, put them on parchment, add salt, pepper and other seasonings as per my whims, and bake them.

I still exist, but I'm scrambling about getting ready for my summer fieldwork.

That's kind of inconsistent to believe in one thing without evidence but not another...

He-3 or 3He are acceptable notations.

Given that the Russians could track Apollo missions by radar, telemetry, and in the near-Earth portions of the missions) optically, and had access to their own lunar samples which they could compare with US samples, how do you propose that NASA managed to trick them? Bonus points if the trick is actually easier than going to the Moon.

Rocks, particularly ones which contain interesting bits of former life forms. I'm using a ~10 lb piece of fossiliferous limestone from the Frank Slide as a doorstop.

I ended up more of a geographer/archaeologist.

Well that would depend upon how large the hollow supposedly was. Of course, what I'd want to know is how seismic waves propagate through the regions where this supposed void exists at velocities consistent with extremely dense liquid or solid matter.

Wash's death in Serenity. Trilobite Girl punched me in the shoulder when we saw that in theatre. "I am a leaf on the wi...." *thunk*

My big rules for travel...

No resorts which isolate you from wherever you're going, and when you get there, don't hang out in malls, theme parks, and tourist traps.

Blaaaaah. Theme parks. :(

It's a great place to go for active, intense geomorphology. It also makes a convenient halfway point (well, more like 2/3-1/3) point between me and the significant other.

I'll be going in mid-winter. The greenest thing will probably be the sky.

Well, the one place I'm going for a vacation rather than work in the near future that I'm rather looking forward to is Iceland.

Breakfast food: eggs Benedict, or buckwheat pancakes Dinner food: I like variety, but my favourite dishes tend to be things with interesting uses of seafood, or of pork. As much as I enjoy going all iron chef, I tend to like stuff a bit more rustic than haute cuisine. Chips: meh. Chips are chips. Favorite drink: for ****tails, a Manhattan or a gin martini (and I resent having to specify that it's a gin martini because now "martini" is synonymous with fruity ...

I aspire to never cross Olive Garden off of my list of restaurants I've never eaten at.

I'm going for field work with the Baikal-Hokkaido Archaeology Project, so I'll be spending most of my time getting rained on.

A Devinci Milano hybrid. 2. When I need more than the above, I usually rent a Toyota Yaris or a Mazda 3. 3. As little as possible. 4. Tesla Model S. 5. ???

I discovered that applying a whole pineapple as a rectal suppository cures cancer, but big pharma doesn't want you to know.

People who act like they've discovered the true nature of the universe for having watched a video on YouTube or Googled something.
